Pa Togan Nengminza

Pa Togan Nengminza was a brave A·chik warrior. He was born in the village of Samanda near Williamnagar, East Garo Hills, Meghalaya. Being a large man, he has often been compared to the Philistine warrior ‘Goliath’.

In the year 1872 some British soldiers entered into the Garo Hills and set up camp in a village named “Matcha Rongkrek” which is situated near Chiso Bibra.

Pa Togan Nengminza and other Garo warriors

attacked the British soldiers while they were sleeping. Roused from sleep by the cries of their comrades,the remaining British soldiers retaliated. It was a one sided affair as the Garo warriors were ill equipped. Needless to say, they suffered heavy losses and Pa Togan Nengminza died on the spot, succumbing to a barrage of bullets.

Pa Togan Nengminza fought and died for his own motherland and community. This brave warrior is remembered by the people of Garo Hills on the 12th of December every year. Till today, the Meghalaya Government is also celebrating 12th December as “Togan Nengminza’s Day”

Hey just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The text in your article
seem to be running off the screen in Internet explorer.
I'm not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with
internet browser compatibility but I thought I'd
post to let you know. The style and design look great though!
Hope you get the issue resolved soon. Cheers
