Numidang-gi pung 8.00 muk tarakpaga chak charasi haiduna eikhoi mari-manga koina fammi. Acha-athak khudingmak mayaida thamlaga magi-magi apamba-du lou-louduna adum chai.

Nong hek nganbaga, napet-ta puduna lichei-maru sana masamdu tengna khakthatli. Khujin-khuya fajana kakthat-li, fadina tak-tuna masa-mau fajana eerujahalli.

Wow! Tomboi-si ngasidi mee manbagum tou-ihe, nasak-kadu ngasidi khufaja amani hairubabu, nakanda thetliba mingsel duda munna yenglaga hairak-i, sam kakpasidi ikok-sidagi yamna lumba pot ama thang-thakhibaga chap mannei, iyang yang-i-he.

Mathel kayagi mahao-singdugi mathak-ta, henna mahao leiraba wahei kayaga loinana eikhoi ahanba oina sak-khang maikhang-naba hourak-khi. Ikui-kuidana, mahak-ki mamadusu, mapuroiba & macha-singbu una-naba haiduna Bangaluru-da thunglakhi.
