In Memory of Our Beloved Eldest Brother

R. Lalthlengkima (1979 - 2017)

This website is dedicated to our beloved eldest brother, Mr. R. Lalthlengkima (Thlenga), who departed from us on July 14, 2017, to rest in eternity. He was born on April 23, 1979, at Sialsuk, Mizoram, India. Mr. R. Hrangzuala and Mrs. Lalthianghlimi, our devoted parents, raised him with gentle love and care. He attended the Government Primary School-II, Government Middle School-I, and Government Sialsuk High School at Sialsuk, as well as the Government J.L. Higher Secondary School, Pachhunga University College, and DOEACC Center - Zuangtui in Aizawl.  His siblings are Mrs. R. Lalchhuanvawri (W/o. Mr. Joseph Lalsiammawia Sailo), Mr. Lalthlanthanga, Mr. Lalzarzoa, and Mr. Lamuansanga (H/o. Mrs. Marina Laltlankimi).

Mr. Thlenga, our big brother, wed Mrs. Lalbiakmawii (from East Lungdar) on September 11, 2014, at the Presbyterian Church in Sialsuk. They were blessed with a lovely boy named R. Vanlalawmpuia. We lovingly dubbed him Opipi-a; he is a true enlightener for both his parents and our entire family.

He participated enthusiastically in a range of student community activities during his time as a student. He served as Chhimphei Mizo Zirlai Pawl's (CMZP) president until his passing. He also served on the Executive Committee of the Mizo Zirlai Pawl (MZP) General Headquarters in Aizawl for more than two terms. He participated extensively in "MZP Chanchinbu" as an Editorial Board member at MZP General Headquarters. Besides, until his passing, he served as President of the Sialsuk Students' Union (Aizawl)/SSU(A).

He also spent more than two years teaching Information Technology (IT) at Hrawva School in Venghlui, Aizawl. After living in Aizawl for a while, he returned to our village for family reasons, but he continued to serve the locals and non-governmental organizations there. In addition to being actively involved in the Game and Sports Association, he was chosen President of the Young Mizo Association (YMA), Sialsuk Branch.

Our big brother Mr. Thlenga was our inspiration and our brains when we took the initiation for this site. He never failed to keep this site updated in his free time. His goal has always been to give Mizo song and lyrics fans access to free lyrics.

As the four of us, "The Four Brothers" collectively maintained this Mizo lyrics website for over five years, he became ill on July 6, 2017, spent about a week recovering at our home, and his health worsened faster than we had anticipated. He was first admitted to the Primary Health Center (PHC) at Sialsuk, and afterwards moved to the Aizawl Hospital and Research Center's Intensive Care Unit. On the morning of July 14, 2017 (Friday), the Almighty took him to eternal rest, even though we are still waiting for him to recover from his severe sickness.  His mortal remains was returned home at the dame day, and on July 15, 2017 (Saturday), we laid his body at the Sialsuk Public Cemetery, where he will await the ultimate resurrection. He may have departed from us in this life, but our memories of him endure, and he will always be with us in spirit until we cross paths again in the afterlife.

"Go rest high on that mountain,
(Brother) Son, your work on earth is done,
Go to heaven a shoutin',
Love for the Father and the Son."
