Trapped in Chin Hills

It is pretty boring in Chin Hills. No where to go (except trekking the same trail again and again every day), nothing to enjoy (except the same scene again and again), and worst of all, no internet at all. In addition to that, it is excruciatingly cold. During winter months, the temperature sometimes drops to as low as 4 to 5 degree Celsius, making the nights unbearable. I have to wear three sweaters, three blankets, a pair of gloves and socks, and a wool cap above my head every night. Even then, the cold is unbearable. The wind also blows quite strong, and the sound of the wind blowing through the pine forest is quite menacing to the weak souls. Even during the day, we have to use charcoal stoves to make us warm. And when it rains in winter, the cold becomes unthinkable. The whole town is covered in thick fogs, reducing the visibility to just a few feet. Really feel like above the clouds. What a harsh and cruel weather it is!

I wrote this one on the night of 16th of November 2006, while in Chin Hills.

ခ်င္းေတာင္ေပၚမွာ ေနရတာ အရမ္း ပ်င္းစရာ ေကာင္းလွပါတယ္။ ဘယ္မွလဲ သြားစရာ မရွိ၊ ေပ်ာ္စရာ ပါးစရာ လဲမရွိ၊ အင္တာနက္ လဲမရွိ (အဲဒါက အဆိုးတကာ့ အဆိုးဆံုး ပါပဲ) ေတာ္ေတာ္ ပ်င္းစရာ ေကာင္းပါတယ္။ ဒီၾကားထဲ ခ်မ္းကလဲ ခ်မ္းေသး။ ေဆာင္းတြင္း ဒီဇင္ဘာ လဆို အပူခ်ိန္က (အေအးခ်ိန္ဆို ပိုမွန္ပါတယ္) ၄ - ၅ ဒီဂရီ စင္တီဂရိတ္ ေလာက္ပဲ ရွိတာဆိုေတာ့ ညညေတြဆို မခံနိုင္ေအာင္ကို ခ်မ္းလွတာပါလား။ အေႏြးထည္က သံုးထပ္၊ ဂြမ္းေစာင္က ႏွစ္ထပ္၊ ဂြမ္းကပ္က တစ္ထပ္၊ လက္အိတ္စြပ္၊ ေျခအိပ္စြပ္၊ ေခါင္းစြပ္ စြပ္၊ ဒါလဲ မခံနိုင္ေအာင္ ခ်မ္းလွပါတယ္။ ေလကလဲ တဝႈးဝႈးနဲ႔ တခ်ိန္လံုး တိုက္ေနတာပါ။ ညညဆို ထင္း႐ူးေတာ ေတြထဲ ျဖတ္ၿပီး ေလတိုက္တဲ့ အသံဟာ ေလႀကီး မိုးႀကီး က်ေနသလား ေအာက္ေမ့ရပါတယ္။ အရမ္းပဲ စိတ္ေခ်ာက္ခ်ား စရာ ေကာင္းလြန္းလွပါတယ္။ ခ်မ္လြန္းလို႔ ေန႔လယ္ခင္းေတာင္ မီးလႈံရင္း အလုပ္လုပ္ရပါတယ္။ ဒီၾကားထဲ ေဆာင္းတြင္း မိုးရြာလိုက္လွ်င္ေတာ့ အရမ္း အရမ္းကို ခ်မ္းေတာ့ တာပါပဲ။ မိႈင္း (ေတာင္ေပၚမွာ တိမ္ (သို႔) ျမဴ ေတြကို ေခၚတာပါ) ေတြ တိုက္လာၿပီ ဆိုလွ်င္လဲ ဘာဆို ဘာမွ မျမင္ရေတာ့ပါဘူး။ ေပ ၂၀ - ၂၅ ေပေလာက္ဆို ျဖဴျဖဴေဖြးေဖြး ေတြပဲ ျမင္ရပါေတာ့တယ္။ တိမ္ေတြေပၚ ေရာက္ေနသလိုေပါ့။ တကယ္ကို ဆိုးရြားလွတဲ့ ရာသီဥတု ပါလားေနာ္။


ဒီစာကို ခ်င္းေတာင္မွာ ရွိတံုး ၁၆ နိုဝင္ဘာ ၂၀၀၆ ညမွာ ေရးပါတယ္။
