[We met Professor Nahendra Padun on December 3,2011 last at Pasighat in Donyi Polo Yelam Kébang(DPYK) meet.The DPYK celebrated its silver jubilee year commemorating revival of Donyi Polo faith by religious guru Talom Rukbo with three days programmes at Pasighat of Arunachal Pradesh.Prof Padun was invited as an honourable guest at this celebration.We had an interview with Prof Padun on the same day in between his busy schedules.Prof Padun is a highly revered person of Mising people’s language and culture,we don’t need a new introduction for him at length.Along with Prof Tabu Taid ,he went to organized the first ever Mising Agom Kébang(MAK) meet at Disangmukh,Sibsagar,Assam in 1972.He has written several articles and books on Mising language and culture.We spoke to him for almost fifty minutes.We publish here below an excerpts from our talks with Prof Padun.] Bhaskar Pe:gu:1972 dítag dokké Mising Agom Kébang(MAK) dém Prof Tabu Ta:íd nonyi ba:len dokké silo pé Mising agom élang gomlab ém angunamém éddiko kapé ka:beg dun?[What are the changes you see in Mising language and literature today since the formation of Mising Agom Kebang in 1972 by you and Prof Tabu Taid ?] Prof Nahendra Pa:dun:Agom dokké gomlabé ajjoko gísadung émdaggom bojeko gerpénam du:da.Adné-pa:né ami lokké ‘devotion’ kamang.Siloké sí:sang ko-ko:néngé Mising agom légang okoi ko gerpé émnam kamang,opín légang ang(nationalism) kamang-ngo Misi sém ipérung émnam kamana.Longko Brighumoni Kagyung,Chandra Kanta Lachon bulu sikang,kapila Misingong gídun,bulum bottamonédé ngollung ai-Bhupen Hazarika ké sido dém abako amme lendungédémípé ngolu ‘national figure’ ko kapila lenmola:man?Nolu supak Nahendra Padun mé Agom Kébang do gídung émna kangkindung émpigel Nahendra Padun bí okkom gerdun édém kinmang.Nahendra Padun ké éddiko potiné dun émna tadmílo Mising koué sékosin lulama:yé.Mipag kokangé ngokkolo gíadag ‘research ‘ ikolo,ngolukké kamang.Sémpiné mé:lod(attitude) gébomla ngoluk agomsé éddíko mé:dagji odokíddar ko ‘(develop’) talép gímang.Ngolukké do:ying,mé:tom ajjokodaggom adnam lendung, édébulu éddiko ‘standard’ dun édém gom mé:pípa:yé.Édémbulum kangkinpé,kinpélupé ngolukké regular pé lusar potin,lutad ébulu kama tomílo,sémpin agerkídísém supak ké sí:sa:né young generationé(ajjiné/anu sí:sang) gerpa:yé.Ngo aipé opanna du:daggom ,lekom salary kamala dudaggom ‘Lutad’( a newspaper) dém akkéng(6) dítag ko:pé atéronggé la:lento.Édémpiné (courage)ang pítan amié kapila gílenman?[There are

lots of things to work although the language and literature has slightly developed.There is a lack of devotion on the part of the writers.Today’s growing youths doesn’t sense to work for Mising language,there is an absence of nationalism-there is no willingness(by youths) that I’ll really work for the Misings. Few days ago ,people like Bhrigumoni Kagyung,Chandra Kanta Lachan passed away,why only Mising people came out?We were the one who made them grew as big personalities,recently when Bhupen Hazarika died, numbers of people turned out,why can’t we make a national figure of our own in this way?Now,you know Nahendra Padun because he goes with literary body but you are ignorance of what he has worked.No Mising

we left.There are writings of stories-tales,essays,poems;we must take up a scheme that we’ll make it appear in a particular year.It was chalked out to introduced upto class seven but it didn’t happened till to-day.The literary association should vibrantly organize seminar,workshop etc. to let things appear.Before government asked for textbooks,we should make it ready.If we get prepared ourselves beforehand ,only then we can shout to the government.If the government agrees tomorrow,what can we do without the books?If there is upto class seven,we need able teachers too.All Mising(language) teachers are appointed in Mising inhabited areas,but what actually happened is that after working for one-two years they convert into general posts.Without teaching classes,they run away;there is nothing called ‘responsibility’.We have said several times but there is no follow-up.] Bhaskar Pe:gu:Ka:yemílo silo-mélo ngoluk Mising Tani agom sém luné ka:mapé ibomdung.Odokkésin lujar-néta lujar lo du:né ami élang ommangé lumang.Ngolu íngkom ilayen ngasodsém bulum motumnam légangé?[It is observed that our Mising Tani language speakers is decreasing now a days.Furthermore,the children and men of the cities -towns dwellers doesn’t speak the language.What can we contemplate to discourage these problems?] Prof Nahendra Pa:dun:Tani agomo:so kéígbomdung émnam mang,sé mo:pí sok dek agoméi ngasod a:dung.Sé:sin ngoluk agíké opín aipé mé:ma:la.Ngolu Boro kídísémpé kapil ilaman?1983-84 do Boro agom mimag mododém Pronoy Mushahary bí Judge’s Field,Guwahati do kébang kolo Bangla agompé luka.Bulu Boro agomongém silo kolokké luyé émndanna pesuka.Silo kolokké ngolu Mising agomsém ludanpé émnamko ka:mana.1971 do TSJ Sun bí ngo ‘refer’ la Tani agom lok ‘research’ ika,Milang agomdém bojé ko lunné kamang, émpigel bulu simosin mang,ammem sin kinmomang,supak lo:pé turra dung.Odogíng silo America lok researcher é la:len dung, Milang dé ‘endangered’ né agomé émna lendung.Ngolu rígsu douwém éddíko Misingpé luka mínsudan?Asomiya agomém mé:nyip lagimang, émpidaggom ngoluk agom sok do:ying ko kíkol gí:do do agíké agomém lupénammé.Ngoluk tanyié rígsuyémíl agíké agomémsin lumang,mipagdémsin kabodo:pé lumang.Agíké agomém agíé moke: sudung.’’Ngolu Misingo:pé lulai’’ émna orípé mé:su pé nammé. [It is not that only the Tani languages are decreasing,there are several languages ailing in this world.This is also because we have no affection towards our community.Why can’t we do like the Bodos?In 1983-84,during the times of Bodo language movement in a meeting at Judges’ Field,Guwahati, Pronoy Mushahary spoke in Bangla language.They took oath to speak only in Bodo language from that day onwards.We don’t have such thing that we’ll speak the Mising language from today onwards.In 1971,TSJ Sun did his research on Tani language to whom I referred to.There are not many speakers of Milang language but neither they let it to die down nor they let it others to know,it is alive hitherto.From these,the American researchers have found that Milang is an endangered language today.How much do we speak Mising language when we meet?We shouldn’t dislike Assamese language but even then when we go on talking on our language we should speak in our own.When our people meet,our people doesn’t speak own tongue;neither they speak correct non-Mising language.We are killing our own language.We must deeply ponder ourselves,”Let’s speak only Mising language”.] Bhaskar Pe:gu:Édé Sir silo-mélo ludung kuje Tani agom sém “common lingua franca’’ pé ipé lagidag.Tani agomkídarsém supak angudanpé North Assam branch émmapé Tani language ope: émna sium-síro agom lok kinjo-kinlapné amme ludungku.Odokkésin Australia lok James Cook University lok researcher Mark Post bí Tani agom takam sém Eastern éla Western branch émna topansudung.Supak, Tani agom lok luték la ngoluk Mising éla Adi agomé akamodag émna degéi kindung.Sém sable, ngolu Tani agom lok lingua franca ko lenmolamayene lédupédaggom?
