Among the more strange activities in the festival was the pulling of the stone through the streets of Kohima.
All tribes should participate with the men pulling and the women with baskets with refreshments(?). Fortunately the pull was downhill, but the sled they used was crude, and they should only pull with vines tied together.
Even if they had several of these ropes, they broke often and that meant a stop i order to tie them together again. Note the tag, socalled expert in a specialized field.
They got really stuck for a long time, then we took off. Here are some mor pictures of the activities around the pulling.
