text: In Tamlu a genna is performed in case of epidemics for which a goat and a chicken are killed two miles away from the village in the forest. Furthermore the entire village holds a genna when the (236) pipes are built which lead to the well at the paths to the fields and for building the two platforms at the well, one for men and one for women.
