text: We arrived in Mon at 5.30 pm and the ADC told us that Chingwang Konyak, the Minister for Shillong would shortly arrive.
text: I washed and changed, and by the time I had finished Chingwang had arrived. He is an attractive young man, slim and immaculately dressed in a western suit. He was extremely appreciative of my writing on the Konyaks and very sensible on the views on agricultural development. I was, on the whole, pleasantly surprised. There was a buffet dinner at the ADC's house.
