Lamka vs Churachandpur - My Home town Lets take a look at what people says

Origin of Lamka on the bank of Khuga (Tuitha)

Located southwest of Manipur (India), Churachandpur District covers an area of 4570 km². In fact, it is the largest district within the state of Manipur. The district mainly has hilly terrain except narrow strips of valley which support wet rice cultivation. Churachandpur town, locally known as Lamka, is the district headquarters. Lamka (literally meaning "converging roads") is the second-largest town of Manipur, next only to the state capital, Imphal. So, Lamka is called the "second town" of Manipur and remains the fastest growing town in the state. The urbanites of Churachandpur town are sometimes called "CCpurians" or, more accurately, "Lamka-ites" (since CCpur connotes the entire district population).

Churachandpur, originally & locally known as Lamka, town is the district headquarters of Churachandpur district in Manipur. "Due to its commercial origins, Churachandpur is the most multi-ethnic and cosmopolitan hill town in Manipur.

Lyrics about LAMKA in PAITE

Lamka vang khua

Namchih zata tuibang gawmna,
Tuanglam minthang vangkho nunnuam;
Na sung a ngabang leng te’n,
Na pal ningbang hon zouta nu’ng.

Tullou in vangkhopi ding gige in,
L-A-M-K-A vangkho nunnuam;
Heksiam seinou lia leh tang te,
Nunnuam a lim ngabang bualna.

Vangkholai ah vaimang siamsil,
Tangpeh-sikgui khau zam zilzial,
Maimit suan tullel dawn ah,
Etlawm tung solkha tang nou bang.

Khotuah kumsawt tangbang dam in,
Vaimang siamsil sausuan piandang;
Len zingzin sawlbang baanna,
Hon ngilh kei ni’ng aw vangkhua nuam
----------------------------
A Sakmin Lamka
I vangkhopi nibang lunlai LAMKA kotkawl,
Salpha henluang singbang a pukna;
A sumtual zang nunnuam leh a phillei zong,
I gam lumbang sung salpha' sisan a bualsa hi.

Seinou khangpan lia leh tang siamsil sut te,
Lunglai in khuambang gelthak ve ni;
I vang khopi i zoulei gam mitnauta hi;
Nibang-el te' nuihchiam lel i phal ding maw?

Tang a i pipu te sakmin lohsa LAMKA,
Shingta vual in hem in pampaih zong;
Tawi semsem ni a sakmin leh a gamlei,
Salpha Goukhothang i gam hun buanlei a suahna hi.

I vang khopi sakmin lohna’n khang vaimang in,
Melmak lunta sakmin theibang lou;
Sauchih dawngkot dalpek ah vabang tuang hi,
Maimit suan in sinlai ah naa i sa na hiam aw?

Lamka Vangkhua zaw maw, Nuamlua Paradise chi uh

Hiai laa Phuaktu ka theikei ngaihsiam,,
