 It's a Siamsinpawlpi Silver Jubilee Sovenir title "Siamsin Thelnah" published by Siamsinpawlpi Mizoram HQ, for our better understanding Siamsinpawlpi is a Paite Student welfare body with its General headquarter in Lamka . The book 'Siamsin thelnah' with Pu Kamkhokam Guite as it Chief Editor give us the insight of the how Siamsinpawlpi began its journey to its present day..
On turning the page at Messages section we can see messages from our honarable leader. The book written in trilingual by its contributor are sometimes creating confusion for a reader like me  as I couldn't read one written in lusei dialect luckily for me few are written in lusei dialect. 
Here in this book its also give us a little knowledge of the socio-political scenerio of Paites in Mizoram. As i read further and further i came across a nice article 'Tunkhopum Baite and his Chin liberation army in the 1960s'  this article literally touch my heart ,  now i can see why  zomi didn't get a state and we can also see that enemy doesn't come from faraway.

Once reading the report from SSPP Heeadquaters , we can know how SSPP has made contributions to the society..  And once again after reading MLA te tanchin and Mizoram Paite khaw tanchin i am more enlightened and feel proud that my community are well represented despite being a minority. 
Conclusion: This book is worth reading and evry SSPP lover must buy it. SSPP damsawt hen

Brief Early History of PAITE as Compiled in ZO HISTORY by Pu Vumson

Paihte or Paite is a name given by the Lusei and Pawi to people living in Tedim, in the southern and eastern parts of Manipur district and in the Somra Tract.
 Thaute or 'fat people' is also a name given to them by the Lusei.

 Among Paite themselves thaute refers only to the Sizang. In literature the term Kuki also covers part of the Paite. The clans of the Paihte are Guite, Ngaihte, Teizang, Thado (Khuangsai), Sukte, Sizang, Khuano, Saizang, Vaiphei, Baite, Gangte, and Yo. Most Paite clans claim to be descendants of Songthu, who is listed as one of the earliest Zo men. In the absence of written records however less important men have been forgotten, and only those with power have been remembered. Songthu, or Cawngtu, must have been a powerful man, as Songthu songs are still sung in ceremonies among the Lusei and Paite

The Paite tell of early settlement in the Tuikang or Chindwin valley, where they lived with the Khamang people, who may have been the Shans. According to Vum K…

"The people living in darkness have seen a great light; on those living in the land of the shadow of death
a light has dawned. (Math. 4:15-16 NIV)"

The above quotation taken from the Bible aptly describes the historic moment when Christianity sets its foot for the first time in the district almost a hundred years ago, that turned one of the most ferocious and war-like tribes into one of the most peace-loving and most faithful followers of Jesus Christ within a few decades.

The origin and development of Christianity in Churachandpur cannot be discussed a part from the history of the Evangelical Congregational Church of India (the erstwhile North East India General Mission) because this is the first church that was established and that many churches that have sprang up over the years are related to this church in one way or another.
