Look what we discovered! November 05 2015
Our dear client, Matouleibi, shared this beautiful fact with us:
"'Lai' means God in my mother tongue 'Meiteilon' (also know as Manipuri) the language spoken in Manipur, the Northeastern state of India."
How wonderful is that?! So we now know 'Lai' to mean 3 beautiful things in 3 different languages! For the uninitiated here are the other 2:
(1) the beloved one (Sanskrit)
(2) a lyrical, narrative poem written in octosyllabic couplets that often deals with tales of adventure and romance. (old French)
The picture below is one that I took on a trip to Manipur many-many moons ago!
