(L) T. GOUGIN’S WILL
I too want to leave my will
even if I failed to fulfil my dream of Zoland
during my life time where
all Zomis can live together as one big family
with one aspiration,
one hope that is;
JUSTICE
for Social, Economics, Political, Religion and
LIBERTY
of Thought, Expression, Faith and
Equality of Status and
of Opportunity and to promote among
all Zomis Fraternity.
For these,
we should Fight together, Work together and
Die together.
This is MY WILL.
My second Will is
Nobody should shed tears over my mortal body but try to know my Will above.
My third Will is
over my grave this should be written :
“ Here lies a MAN who work for the Unification of all ZOMI’s and for their
Salvation, Political, Economic and Religion.
For this,
GOD ordained him to suffer”.

MY WILL
Pu T. GOUGIN IN A WILL TAMBANG IN
ANA GIEL HI
I too want to leave my will
even if I failed to fulfil my dream of Zoland
during my life time where
all Zomis can live together as one big family
with one aspiration,
one hope that is;
JUSTICE
for Social, Economics, Political, Religion and
LIBERTY
of Thought, Expression, Faith and
Equality of Status and
of Opportunity and to promote among
all Zomis Fraternity.
For these,
we should Fight together, Work together and
Die together.
This is MY WILL.
My second Will is
Nobody should shed tears over my mortal body but try to know my Will above.
My third Will is
over my grave this should be written :
“ Here lies a MAN who work for the Unification of all ZOMI’s and for their
Salvation, Political, Economic and Religion.
For this,
GOD ordained him to suffer”.

OLD IS GOLD

“Pu T. Gougin was the best known political leader of the Zo people who hailed form the Zou community “At a time when tribal leaders were vying for state recognition of their dialectal communities as “Scheduled Tribes,” Gougin began to conceive the idea of Zomi, i.e., “Zo people” in 1955 while serving as a clerk of the Tribal Development Office, Imphal. This prompted him to resign from his clerical job in 1958, and then pursued BA (honours) at St. Edmund’s College, Shillong. As a final year student, he founded the United Zomi Organisation (UZO) at Singtom village (Manipur) in 1961 to unite “all ethnic Zomi groups” (Gougin 1988: 3). When UZO was reduced to mere vote bank politics to the complete neglect of wider Zo solidarity, T. Gougin launched on 28 January 1972 a new organisation, Zomi National Congress (ZNC) at Daizang village (Manipur). He owned a printing press which helped him to propagate his nationalist vision through pamphlets, booklets and ephemeral literature. The Discovery of Zoland (1980) is perhaps Gougin’s most enduring political writing” (p. 61).”
