text: Eventually, however, I received the assurance that a permit allowing me to visit the Konyak area for a short time would be issued and communicated to Shillong, the seat of the Governor of Assam who was also Governor of Nagaland. Fortunately this double charge was held by B.K. Nehru, who had known me for twenty-five years, and was of the greatest help in making the arrangements for my tour. There were still several hitches but thanks to the hospitality of B.K. Nehru and his wife as whose guest I stayed in Raj Bhavan, the period of waiting in Shillong (228) was both pleasant and informative.
