text: At Mokokchung, a large Ao village and headquarters of a Sub-division, came the parting of the ways. Mills went on to Kohima, while I returned to the Konyak country. It was a strange moment half of regret at leaving Mills and half of excitement at being on my own in a new field, when in pouring rain I left Mokokchung with Nlamo, Tsampio and a few porters. Before me lay my life with the Nagas.
