text: Before being able to set out for the Konyak-country I also had the opportunity of broadening my knowledge of the Nagas in general by a visit to the Zemi Nagas who inhabit the hills of North Cachar District, an area which lies outside Nagaland. Useful and interesting as this visit into an area studied earlier by Ursula Graham-Bower and described in her book 'Naga Path' may have been, at that particular moment it served mainly the purpose of filling in time. I was impatient to return to the Konyaks and as soon as the necessary orders had arrived from Delhi I broke off my stay among the Zemis, and hurried back to Shillong.
