text: To Sakhalu. On the way I disposed of a long-standing land partition case between Kiyekhu and Zhekiya who have been squabbling about their jhums for a long time. The case was complicated by the fact that while two branches of the family held land in both villages two more held land in Kiyekhu only, so that it could not be settled by merely dividing the village land into two and washing out approximately equivalent rights in the opposite villages.
