By Correspondent

HAFLONG, Dec 16 - The Chief Executive Member of NC Hills Autonomous Council Debolal Gorlosa unveiled the statute of Veer Demalik or Dehmalu Kemprai here on Thursday.

The statue unveiling function was attended by executive members Nipolal Hojai, Golonjo Thaosen, MACs Ratan Jarambusa, Nojit Kemprai, Nobojit Hojai, Projit Hojai, and others along with members of All Kemprai Welfare Committee.

The statue was installed by the All Kemprai Welfare Committee with assistance from the government.

CEM Gorlosa in his speech stressed on the importance of installing statues or immortalising memories of prominent personalities who have contributed significantly for the society, while assuring that the NCHAC is always committed for betterment of the society.

After unveiling the statue, a brief outline of Veer Demalik or Dehmalu Kemprai�s life and achievements was read out.

Earlier, all the guests were felicitated with risha by members of All Kemprai Welfare Committee.

It may perhaps not be out of place to mention here that Demalik or Dehmalu was born to Desangdao and Rihbangdi Kemprai, the great worshippers of Sibarai on August 11, 1226 AD. He was brought up by his grandmother after his parents� demise. He spent his childhood under Rangadao and Degadao Daolaguphu, the popular wrestler brothers of the time.

Since his childhood, Demalik or Dehmalu amazed people with his feats of strength and courage in wrestling and sports, besides fighting fierce tigers and enemies. He also helped the villagers to reap bountiful harvests. He subsequently led the local youths towards voluntary community service and guided them with the traditional culture of the time.

He worked tirelessly for the welfare of his people and kingdom. But unfortunately, he could not escape the treacherous conspiracy hatched against him and left his mortal frame at the age of 30 on January 9, 1256 AD.
