Peacock Lake

Another this time we went to Peacock Lake which is located at the back side of our Univ. Vice-Chancellor's Lodge. It was a great expedition as before, we found out jungle fruit and few remains of Megalithic culture. I never knew such remains are still there in our campus .Moreover, i was glad enough as it was my first time in the famous Peacock Lake since i have been here two years back. They said that Picture speak louder than words...i agreed and just look belows:

Towards Mushroom Rock

It was not my first time, i think this is my third time in Mushroom rock. It was a marvelous rock and is located at the University of Hyderabad with a magnificient structures and unique design. This trip would be unforgetable in my life, you know why? since that day i can have sound sleep, those who know how long am i struggle in night time to have a sound sleep would surely say it was a great trekking naa?!!

The HCU guyz are ready and move towards the so called Mushroom rock.
(L-R: Muansanga, John,Sawmtea, Me and Awma)

we can climb up only with the temporary stone made as a ladder and reach here.

too much to move it!!!

another unique design

We the Mizo students used to have an evening outing to avoid the summer heat. It was a good habit and we can have a big relief from the boring summer time. I won't write much about this trekking but i advise you all to have evening outing if you have insomnia it was helpful for me and it gives me a great relief from my longback severe insomnia. I never play any games and it hard to be avoid such insomnia as i merely stay in hostel doing nothing for my physical health and development. But since that day we visted mushroom rock i can easily sleep in night time and my insomnia also become decreasing day by day. Thank to all my dear colleagues who went for that day, you may not know but your participation makes a great change in my life. A big thums-up to Sawmtea, John, Robert, Muansanga, Awma and Immu.

Rock of Ages-an evening expedition at University of Hyderabad

Summer has came, its too hot and everybody eagerly wait shower(of blessing!), unexpectedly there was a rain here in Hyderabad, before raining we all(Utaia, Thanpuia, Hruaia, Robert)were in my room planning to have an evening trekking in our University campus Rock. Utaia bought a new hi-tech Camera in yesterday and wanna test how good it is, but we were in off-mood as shower still pouring. At last i went up to terrace to checkout weather condition, it seems raining almost stop and went down to my room. Though it was still drizzling our keenest could not stop us and start riding our bi-cycle. In the mid-way shower start again and stop at SN School Junction,looking around sculptures and their other products. Robert left us and he went back.Thank God! Sun appear again, then we went straight to Buffalo Lake, we reached near the lake and parked our cycle.
After this we go by foot..

To reach our destination at least we have to go around Buffalo Lake..Whatever there may be in the way, we don't know but we will move ahead...

It was not an easy trip, there is a thick forest to pass through..

Here is my colleagues Thanpuia and Mahruaia take a rest under the old-aged Tamarind trees. The Tamarind trees are growing very big, standing still more than a century (it seems!)

Way become unsafe!
Alas!we saw my most-hated creature in the we are feeling scare of it we want to leave the spot soon but Utaia (the great)does not have such. Instead showed his kindness, play with this snake after-sometime and he click this picture.

wow! keep it away!

Look out! snares a head, we have to be careful otherwise we might be in trap!

Trough many hard and danger! We safely reach our destination Rock ....but we still have to climb up..

and the mile before we take rest:)

Here is the top,the destination had been reached now!

Among us, only Utaia can reached the Highest Rock...what would be the taste of Oxygen in such high place? I suppose less air polution:-)

See the beautiful views from top of the Rock

sunset view

towards campus

After Spending enough time we climb down from the top of the rock.
(puia be careful!)

Hyderabad is very rich in a variety of Rock Structures

Professional watch!!!

Thank You God, Thank You Mizoram

O Lord my God, When I in awesome wonder,
Consider all the worlds Thy Hands have made;
I see the stars, I hear the rolling thunder,
Thy power throughout the universe displayed.

When through the woods, and forest glades I wander,
And hear the birds sing sweetly in the trees.
When I look down, from lofty mountain grandeur
And see the brook, and feel the gentle breeze.

Then sings my soul, My Saviour God, to Thee,
How great Thou art, How great Thou art.
Then sings my soul, My Saviour God, to Thee,
How great Thou art, How great Thou art!

Pix:Chhurbura@Mizoram State Meuseum.

If you are born-up in Mizoram you must be familiar with Nahaia's friend a name called 'Chhurbura' or in short 'Chhura'.:)

What's Pu.Buanga Dictionary's says about Chhura?

1)Chhûra, (p. 086) [ Chhûra, ] n the name of a famous character in Lushai folk-lore—noted for his stupidity and industry. His name is frequently coupled with that of his friend Naa or Nahaia. (See Chhûrbûra.)

2)Chhûra buh ena " en, (p. 086) [ Chhûra buh ena " en, ] v to look at with the head sideways on a level with the object looked at, as Chhura used to look at his growing rice to get the impression that there was much more of it than there really was. (Chhûra buh enin en rawh.)

3)Chhûra paw-vawng, (p. 086) [ Chhûra paw-vawng, ] n the name of a medium-sized iridescent fly somewhat resembling the blue-bottle or blow-fly in appearance, but not in character. (See pawvawng and tho-tle.)

4)Chhûra ûm-pui, (p. 086) [ Chhûra ûm-pui, ] n the name of a creeper and its fruit. (Same as vânṭha ûm.)

5)Chhûra ûmpui mu, (p. 086) [ Chhûra ûmpui mu, ] n the flat irregularly-shaped seeds of the fruit of the above creeper which are worn by Lushai children as beads. (Same as vânṭha ûm mu.)

6)Chhûra vawkpa, (p. 086) [ Chhûra vawkpa, ] n the name of a fat edible cricket with short body and very long hoppers. (Resembles the 'bush-creep'.) See kumtin thîaneilo.

7)Chhûra vawkpa zâwnna, (p. 086) [ Chhûra vawkpa zâwnna, ] n the name of a small toy litter or stretcher, suitable for carrying a Chhûra vawkpa cricket in, made in the form of a kind of cat's-cradle from a single strip of bamboo, etc. (See Hauhaii zâwnna, which however is of a different pattern.)

8)Chhûrbûra, (p. 086) [ Chhûrbûra, ] n the full name of the famous Lushai character commonly known as Chhûra. (See there.)

If people called you as "chhura" then what will you say? I think you may not welcome them:)he he. But Chhura cannot be under-estimated, instead he is called as hero and some Mizo tribes(Hmar)still claimed themselves as Chhura's descendants. So if you want to become a hero don't ever mind to called yourself as "Chhura". Whenever you got a call from someone and address you as "chhurbur" kindly accept and appreciate it, that is your way for future hero:-)all the best!
