Condolences: Moderator/ Senior Executive Secretary,

The news of the death of Rev. Dr. Zairema around 6 am this morning comes as a very sad news to all of us in the family of Serampore College. Rev. Dr. Zairema was a BD student at Serampore College in the early forties, during the Second World War. He was one of the leading students. He was known for his hard work and brilliant academic performance.

Rev. Dr. Zairema was the first among the Mizos whom Serampore College awarded Doctor of Divinity degree for his outstanding contributions to the Church and Society. His death is a great loss not only to the Mizo Church but also to the whole Christian society and the community of theological education in India.

I, on behalf of Serampore College, the Council and Senate of Serampore College, hereby convey our condolences to his family members and the Mizoram Presbyterian Church.

Rev. Dr. Lalchungnunga
Principal, Serampore College
Secretary, Council of Serampore College
Convener, Senate of Serampore College

Dear Friends, I must write this in English so that I can express myself properly.

It was with sadness that I received the news of Pu Zairema's death. He was always there for us missionaries, and his wisdom kept us from too much follishness many a time. In my time he was at Silchar, and even when I returned there in 2005 to go to the Cachar Hill Tribes Synod, it was as Pu Zairema's house that I thought of the top bungalo. Whenever we travelled, he was there with his welcome and care for us.

His leadership and his scholarship will be greatly missed. Even last year when I attended the ATC Centenary he was busy writing an important book. I greatly cherish the long conversation I had with him in his house at that time.

Please give my condolences to his family, and assure them and the Mizo Church of my prayers. I will inform Rev Alwyn Roberts immediately.

Yours in Christ

Angharad Roberts/Zopari
