“It is not only lack of vision but society without written literature will die,” said Bishop James Thoppil, the Bishop of Kohima, while releasing two books in Lotha dialect - Mmhaka Kako (Book of Blessings) and Baptisma, Yanpiyanthan, tona Echü Shothe to Ekhüm (Rite for Baptism, Marriage, and Funeral) on November 25 at Bishop’s House, Kohima.
The books were published by Lotha Catholic Literature Committee.

Addressing the gathering, Peter Lichamo, president, Lotha Catholic Literature Committee, said as the first Catholics in Nagaland, the Lotha Catholics were trying to lead by example in the deepening of faith through the publication of the books. 

Bishop James also reiterated that the two books were not only for the Lotha Catholics but would make a monumental contribution to Lotha literature.

Fr. Abraham Lotha, chief editor, thanked the team who translated and edited the books and also thanked Bishop Paul Bootkoski and the Diocese of Metuchen for their generous support.

Also present at the book release were the officials of Lotha Catholic Union and Lotha Catholic Literature Committee.
