Background

“My mother passed away when she gave birth to me… My father and my brothers, they took care of me”.

“Because we were poor, we grew our own food, like maize and other grains…
and then, the mother of the king of Sohra called for me to stay with them and help them out…I stayed with the king’s mother till I was in my 20s”.

On love

“You should love yourself first. When you love yourself first, then you can share your love”.

“That was a big challenge in his life, when someone he loved passed away”.
