Bomai - I like this story.

Imagine if someone puts together a number of these stories, it will form a rich tapestry of our pre-colonial and colonial history leading to independence.

Like Sil said, all stories and history should have some lessons for the current generation.

And the river Maril reminds me of a a beautiful poem written by Simbu's very own "bush poet" Jimmy Drekore.

Can't dispute that, Sil.

Kops, those nostalgic days are worth recording. They were bloody tough and hard working men and women with minimal technology to leave a legacy for us. I pity these earth worms of today who have at their disposal the sharpest bush knives, spades and axes but can't even do a grass cutting.

Enjoyed this piece.
