text: The rice fields on the slopes between Thungar and Chatongre were partly not harvested as the hail had so completely destroyed the grain that it had not been worth the labour. The walk up to Phire-Ahire dragged on considerably and we were all glad to reach the village around half past one and shortly after the place which had been prepared as a camp.
