text: The first sowing is done by the Ang himself. The Ang does some work on his fields too, when the villagers go to work in his fields. (12) The first rice reaping is done by all the villagers, each of them eats a little bit of his own rice. The next day is genna. The third day first the Ang's rice is reaped and then that of the ordinary people.
