text: Spent all morning on the Kaluma village, Chobama case. Kaluma gets the lower half of the disputed tila up to 40 yards above the Government road. We climbed a tila to see the jungle and spent all morning wrangling over the impossible task of equally dividing several tilas and then lost all our landmarks in the jungle. To Kekrima. Nihu had preceeded me and I found the Tekhubama - Nakrama grazing case satisfactorily settled.
