i know abt him
This one is a bit funny..francis for that matter
used to tease me about this incident which happened way back in 2001...during that
period mom and dad never allowed me to take the car out for reasons i dont know...so okay,it
was late and we all were sitting in front of that pool parlour and no one was ready to
drop me home ..so francis gave me this 100 dinars and he gave this philosophical statement "what are frens for
and all that" that 100 dinars which he gave me was meant for my taxi fare...instead of hiring one,
i took a bus ride all the way back home to chawlhmun..which costed me about 6 rupees
or something :)...so when francis heard about..he took it to the town....and for him its one thing he loved the most about
me ...he never erased that incident even 2 days before his end came..he was like "slim-a a lawmawm khop mai motor i rawn la
chhuak thei tawh hi chu,taxi fare vel pek i chak awm loh ropui si,,,eiruk hrat bawk si"...and i remember running after him
till the College veng field for that....little did i know that it would be the last time he'd be laughing at me...little did
Really, my friendship with
him lasted 24 full years..and in those years Francis never gave me this room to complain about him...okay he used to get to
my nerves especially when i say something and he'd just dismiss it as just another lie!...hmm!
close to all his siblings especially Remsanga..and He loved benjamin with all his heart..he talks about them all the time
esp when we're in that 'I WANA GET HIGH"stage...he loved his family...Changes came his way as i saw it when his Father Pa
clement passed away in january 2002..at that time i was here in Nagpur..and when i saw him again on that very year..he
was carryin' too many burdens...he changed..obvious i know...but he never showed it...but i really dont know he made me his
Agony AUnt....but then i guess life is all about Listening...im glad that i know little of him...
Francis is so protective of me..maybe coz of the fact that im mixed
breed ...he's caring but not so expressive...there were times especially in school when he'd get into fights coz of me...and
even last october..there was this Bandh called by the local students union..in which non mizos were not allowed to stray out..he
came all the way from kulikawn by Bus that too..and i wasnt aware of the bAndh..so when the time came for him to leave..i
was like Francis let me drop u off...he declined...till the end..and i asked him why....'oh an lo shock palh ang che...ho
mai mai bus in ka haw dawn..kut an lo thlak palh che chuan kan thin rim lutuk palh ang..thlah lo mai rawh..
he was like that...protective of everyone...and i miss him really...and
i still cant believe...that he's really gone...
p.s :ill be writing more about him...and yes ill be inviting the bruss to write
something down here as well....till then chow!
