text: The village is genna today and when a Chen man wanted to leave it a heated discussion developed. Finally he was persuaded to stay. It also is not permitted today to give anything away from the village. As Smith is coming tomorrow, Chingai came in the evening together with some people from Oting as well as the Ang of Punkhung. They all fervantly clamour for the heads.
