text: Counted Tesiphenyu - one of these villages, too common in the Rengma country, in which no one can answer any question asked, but always something entirely other than the question asked. The clans are unevenly divided and when Pakache disappears his clan should be amalgamated with Tukheni's and an extra gaonbura given to Kitao's khel in which there are two factions. Everyone squabbles all the time and the revenue of this village has never got straight since the village was burnt three years ago. Thence to Themokedima.
