Meithei love poem

Mingsenda tariba nangi mami

Masi eigi khwaidagi fajaba seirengni,

Adubu, masi mangkhini thurase.

Masi eigi aroibani, "Eina nangbu nungsi"!

Meithei language

The Meitei (Meithei, Manipuri, Meetei, Hindu Meitei, Menipuri, Mitei, Meeteilon, Kathe, Kathi, Loi, Manipuri Muslim, Meiteilon, Meiteiron, Meithe, Mithe, Pangal, Pangan, Panal, Panan, Ponna, Autonym : মৈতৈলোন্‎ (Meiteilon)), is a language spoken in India, in the state of Manipur, where it is an official language. 2 millions people will be able to understand these translated verses into meitei, a language belonging to the Kukois group of Tibetan-Burmese languages, which one also find in Bangladesh and Burma. It is the most widely spoken Sino-Tibetan language in India.

In principle, manipuri is written with a particular script (meitei mayek). For this translation I have only a romanized version, but it will have the advantage of giving you an idea of how it must be say.


Manipur is a state of India between Burma, Nagaland, Mizoram and Assam. Located in the chain of the Arakan, Manipur has a mountainous territory to 92%. All these mountainous areas constitute an important forest reserve.
