text: To Cholimsen. On the way I noticed some Aos eating, and their curry looked unfamiliar. I found it was composed of caterpillars great, fat, juicy, black and yellow ones cooked whole.
text: Changki came in to see me. They are cultivating the land given up by the Sardar Bahadur and paying rent for it, but have had their fields spoilt this year by a flood, the fate which usually overtakes the panikhets at Changki. They also groused about getting no red cloth.
