text: The Wokha Gaonburas want to re-import a Gurkhali mistri who was turned out for distilling. They say no one makes daos so well as he does and doubtless his booze is also superlative. I referred them to S.D.O. and offered to have one of their boys trained as a blacksmith at the Fuller Technical School, but that is not what they want. They want their Mahabir back.
