text: A number of Lothas have performed social genna and wear the corresponding cloaks. Nzuthang for example has done the Wozuya genna and was wearing a dark blue cloth with five pale blue bands in the centre and three pale blue lines at the top and bottom. Phandemo, who had gone considerably further and dragged a stone five times, wears a similar cloth but with four pale blue lines instead of three.
