Karinoma eshira khallise kuire. Erage haina leple. Edourise karinodi khangde adubu atenba wari amakhakni.

Eina mahakpu munna khangngi. Eikhoigi thangnaba khundagini.

Maheidu heklaga khung semlaga phan mathakta ungbi yamna sanei adudei sampakpi su houwi . akangba sampakpidu mayam ama heklaga langnabi sannagadouribani. Nupimachasingduna khwaidagi saoningbasi sampakpiduna masamda napsinduna sam punsannakhibadei louthokpa yadabaduni. Madudasu nupamachasingna tanna tannaduna sampakpi maheina thomgadouribani.

Machin faba fabi mayamduna onsin onsinduna laknei. Nupidana nupa maming ama aduga nupadana nupi maming ama. Maha kumheini. madugidamak thawoina khatnaba funaba, lairikkhaona thomdotnaba yam yaowi.

Houjik eigi pali lak a. nongma eigadi class mannaba eingondagidi chahi ahum marimuk hanba emannaba ama leirammi. Mahakna haibabu se chithini nanggini hai. Kanana pirakpano hangbada aa makha leikaigi eikhoi class ki nupi amana pirakpani sini. Oh! Ei saoningbi haido loire. Keigino khangde ei yamna saokhi. Mahakka loinaduna eingonda chithi piraklibi nupi mayumduda chatle. Aduga amuk nupiduna hairakpabu eina eba natte sandhyana (ming olle) nangonda pibiyu hairakpani sini. Keigino khangde ei frang frang chongkhei hek saoningkhi.

School hek youbaga assembly toudringeida sandhyadu koithi thire . thengnare. 'Keidoubagi eingonda chithi piraklino' hairaga mangonda amuk pisillamle. Numittudagi eikhoi ani pakna thengnakhidre. Mahak eingonda ekakhibra ei khangde. Matamdubu eikhoibu ekaibaga yamna khangnabarane? Eikhoi loinamak angnag ngaktanida.

Koudadi makourage khanduna eina hanna hanglure, "sandhya nattra nungairibra?" yamna harao harao khumlak e. "umm manni. Udaba kuireda nungiribra nangdi?"

oh!karamna kari kari wari sannarakkhibano kilometer taruk taret tu amata khanghoudre. Mahakki kumthafam mapa youramladuna eingonda hairammi,"leihourageko konna amuk thengnasi bhara eina piramlabani". Bharadu piganu haiduna fanayam kanna eina khamkhibani. Mana hek ngamduna adum piramle.

Sandhyagi masakto yamna henna fajaramle. Chahidi eikhoi lengga oiramgani. Makhajai anido epa pana yamna nouna ui. Sambru khara thungba ui chinban mayada khajaida. Onsinnaduna wari sannabada uhoubani. Masam yamna sangbagum uhouwi. Kharana punsillaga kharana thadok e. oigi khajaida haidorakpa saido hek hek makhut oinaduna tapna tapna khomgatchei. Kari karino mahakna hairambasingdubo.

JN dance academy da jagoi tamli haibra, jagoi tambiri haibra amadi hairambani. Jagoi sabada onthokna pakcharamgani. Khutsasingdo onthokna nouna ukhre auto manungduda. Wari sanaringi manungda nokfet nokfet toubaduna eibu karino khangdana warisingdo sungloi loihanningkhide. Maraktuda khalli mahakpu eikhoina school punna tamminaringei angang oiringeigi thoudokto houjikfaoba ningsinglamkhigadra. Wakhal sisu erang langngi mari amatasu leinadana. Mari amatasu samjinnafam yaodana.

Kari karino kharasu hairambanine mana. Eikhoigi thabi yamna thai nongma koithorak u thabi happige, nakhoigidi engkhol pikpanine mana masing yamna houramloi, kobisu yamna thari eikhoigi... nongmadi koirak u kobisu pukho....

Eikhoi yum engkholgi maramdaga yamna khanglammi... hoi adubudi khullonnabanina khanglambasu yai.. mahaksu eina wari sannaba hourubadagi kumdrifao eikhkhoi anigi warido sungloi hek loiba naikhide...

Thoidoknabudi eina henjinna khalludrabasu sandhyado ngasidi rasi yamna leiramle. Chahi kayagi matungda ubani. Kanamtana mabu masak thi haidouba leiroi meiteinasu mayangnasu. Oh ei keinoma kaore haidouba eina ngarang nahan mangda ui haibi nupi ado sandhyani. Mahakka yamna chunana keraduna thoibigi fijol setlaga jagoi sarammi aduga eina bhabok mayam marakta famlaga mahakki jagoido meet kuptamakhei yenglammi.

Eidi moiranggi thoibido bhabna sagatlaga seithaduna ekhiba seirengbudi khara aduk ekhre haibabu amuktasu ukhibasu nattedo. Mayamna fajei sak sonnabagi eisu matung enduna ayeeba saduna seithabani. Adubu sandhyana saba jagoido aduk fajana moirang thoibinasu saramgadra? Thoibidusu sandhyagumna fajaramgadra? Ei khangde. Makhoi khulgi lai haraobada, jn dance academy da mahak jagoi saramgani adubu eidi taibangdasu amukta ukhidri. Onthokna fajakhre fajaba khuding loina heijinduna saraklabi nuja amagumbini.

Sima watli sima tai hainingai leite. Wakchinggi ayukta leina amatasu choithoktribi angangba gulapta liklana nik nik laona napchaba, ayukki menglaba nungsa mangalna fubada gulapki fajaba khuding napal yaodana fudokchabadu adudagisu mana hellabagum ukhre einadi. Tasengna mang manunggi taibang aduda ei pumngao hek ngaokhi.

Eise fatteda. Houna khangdaba haido hek taida. Mahakna chamna marup mapang ama oibagi nongmadi koirak o makhoigi engkholdagi thabi kobi hektuna hapke haiduna yamna kanna laknanaba hairakkhibado eigi bhibhula chuba numit singgi manungda hek ngamkhidedo.
