Historic Hangrum village in state of neglect

By CORRESPONDENT

HAFLONG, May 12 � Historically famous and one of the oldest villages of Dima Hasao district Hangrum inhabited by the Jeme people situated on the border along Manipur is yet to see the light of development.

The village is historically important because the battle of Hangrum was fought on March 16, 1932 under the command of Rani Gaindinliu. There is a martyr column dedicated to the memory of martyrs who laid their lives during Zeliangrong revolt 1931-1932 against British Empire. At least seven brave Jeme people sacrificed their live in the battle. They were Pauditrangbe Jeme, Rangneikambe Jeme, Zinbuing Jeme, Lungsangying Jeme, Kerujuing Jeme, Nramraing Jeme and Namkebuing Jeme. Hangrum is also known as the Ranima�s camp.

The village is situated nearby 64 km from Mahur established in the 15th century the village has 900 souls living in 130 houses. The people are dependent on jhum cultivation. There are three lower primary schools, two Middle English schools and one medical sub-centre but without any staff. The children are not properly immunized due to lack of proper medical care. Most of the children are malnourished. The people are hard working but the economic condition is not encouraging. The village is having three �Hangseuki� (male dormitory) mostly used for meetings, public gatherings and cultural activities.

The villagers suffer a lot due to absence of electricity and proper water supply. The BRTF constructed road leading to Hangrum is the only blessings for the villagers. Talking to this correspondent, Nahingbe Newme, secretary, Village committee lamented that though the place is famous but due to indifferent attitude of the authority concerned this village has remained the most neglected village of the district. Igaineing Daime, local member of the NCHills Autonomous Council said that the village was the most backward place of the district on all fronts and needs to get proper attention of the development agencies as this place could become an attractive place for the foreign as well as domestic tourists.
