Sukoon 2015 (annual students cultural festival of University of Hyderabad) rock night was held on March 21, 2015 (Saturday) at our campus Open Dais.  On that rock night the main band was Kryptos (Bengaluru heavy metal band), besides the main band Amen M Imsong and the band from Assam & Nagaland also performed with their lively music talents.

As I often mention in my earlier posts Sukoon is an annual students cultural festival of University of Hyderabad, which is organised by Student's Union. In this year we were very fortunate that one of the famous Indian heavy metal bands from Bengaluru 'Kryptos'  had an awesome live concert in our campus Sukoon rock night. The concert was held at our University campus Open Dais on March 21, 2015 (Saturday Night).  Their performance, songs and music were more than words. We really enjoyed their show.  If you want to see their concert pictures please check the followings (Click the images for larger resolution) :

Bhargavi Pillai - A Telegu celeb singer

She does not need more introduction. A Telegu popular singer Bhargavi Pillai came to our University of Hyderabad campus annual students' festival called SUKOON 2015 on 20th March 2015 (Friday night). Her stage performance was good, her sexy voice, and her enthusiastic charisma were awesome. Though i didn't much understood her songs but i really liked the show. To commemorate her performance in our University fest - SUKOON 2015 let me post some of her live pictures here:

Based on my internet (google) search sources i came to know that she was one of the members of S5 (Indian pop band) formed in 2004, but after one year she started solo career in Telegu songs. I am glad that i saw her live performance in SUKOON 2015, it was worth to remember for me. Thanks to Bhargavi Pialli for coming to our campus (University of Hyderabad). We really enjoyed your show.

Mizo Good Friday Song: Tlang mawi tak chu a awm (There’s a hill lone and grey, in a land far away)

Many times especially when it came to Good Friday I often listen my all time favourite Mizo Good Friday song "Tlang mawi tak chu a awm" .  It is a nice song and its lyrics are very heart touching ones. Once i was told it's English lyric of this song, but i can't remember it for longer. Every time when i need to check out it's English lyric i have to search through google.com. So, to keep my time  let me bookmark here in both English and Mizo Tawng.

In English (words: Beverly F. Carradine) :

There’s a hill lone and grey, in a land far away,
In a country beyond the blue sea,
Where beneath that fair sky went a Man forth to die
For the world and for you and for me.

Refrain

Oh, it bows down my heart
And the teardrops will start,
When in mem’ry that grey hill I see.
For ’twas there on its side, Jesus suffered and died
To redeem a poor sinner like me.

Behold! faint on the road, ’neath a world’s heavy load,
Comes a thorn crownèd Man on the way,
With a cross He is bowed, but still on through the crowd
He’s ascending that hill lone and grey.

Refrain

Hark! I hear the dull blow of the hammer swung low;
They are nailing my Lord to the tree,
And the cross they upraised while the multitude gaze
On the blest Lamb of dark Calvary.

Refrain

How they mock Him in death, to His last lab’ring breath,
While His friends sadly weep o’er the way;
But though lonely and faint, still no word of complaint
Fell from Him on the hill lone and grey.

Refrain

Then the darkness came down and the rocks rent around,
And a cry pierced the grief laden air;
’Twas the voice of our King who received death’s dark sting,
All to save us from endless despair.

Refrain

Let the sun hide its face, let the earth reel apace,
Over men who their Savior have slain;
But behold from the sod, comes the blest Lamb of God,
Who was slain and is risen again.

Refrain

In Mizo Tawng (translated by Luaia):

Tlang mawi tak chu a awm, ram hla takah chuanin,
Tuipui piah ram nuam takah chuanin;
A hming, Lu ruh hmunah, Lalpa chu a thi ta,
Kei leh nang leh khawvel tan a ni.

A tuarzia ka hriat in, ka mittui a tla thin,
Chu tlang chu ka thlir, eng lai pawh in;
Chu tlangah chuan Isuan a tuarin, a thi ta,
Kei anga sual chhandamna turin.


Lungngaia a kalin, kraws rit tak an puttir,
Hling lukhum an phiar chu khum chungin;
Kraws-ah an khengbet a, mipui ten an nuihsan,
Chu tlang mawi takah chuan an khai kang.

A lungngaih zia ka hria, Amah an phuar laiin,
Ka chhandamtu thingah an khengbet;
A kraws chu tungdingin, mipuite mithmuhin,
Kalvari tlangah chuan an khai kang.

Thimin a hmel a hliah, lungpui zawng zawng an khi,
Lungngaihna aw thang vel an hriat in;
Kan Lalpa aw a ni, thihna rapthlak tuarin,
Kan zaa sual chhandamna turin.

In Mizo translated version some stanzas are left out, but it's still good with this too. If you like this song too you may want to listen it's Mizo version sung by Rosy K Remsangpuii, here it is:
