text: Towards evening I went through the village and also came to the Ang morung. The old place of the Ang house has already been cleared of weeds and the Ang was just then busy with levelling the ground. Finally now a house is to be built for the Ang and in about a weeks time the people of Wakching want to start on it. The entire house is to be ready in one day as the whole village will help. As a kind of tribute to this occasion Kongan already has given the Ang a small cow.
