A beautiful tale from Tangkhul folklore on the iconic Sirui Lily,shiroi_lily.jpg

which comprises in the compilation of Manipuri Folk Songs by Lourembam Bedabati titled,

Khunnung Eshei Nachom, epitomizes the mother-daughter bond. The damsel abides by the mother’s

wish sacrificing her heart’s longings. The charming lily blooms in the collective memory of the tribe.

Yet again in this song too one can find love of Nature going beyond the worldly understanding of

collective consciousness and soaring for the Divine. A deeply loved flower symbol endowed with

the delicate yet resilient feminine.
