Summary

Description
English: KAREN LADIES POSED FOR THEIR PICTURES BY AN OFFICIOUS HEADMAN

The lady on the right is determined that the evil eye shall not fall on her infant. The taking of photographs was by no means an easy matter in the earliest days of the British occupation. It was looked upon as white magic (see text, page 313). One day a chief upon being invited to look at the focusing glass exclaimed, "Why, they're all upside down!" The women took on a conscious attitude on the spot, and the men shifted their feet uneasily, all of them adopting a stained-glass attitude.

NDETERMINATE PEOPLE WHO DWELL IN A DEBATABLE LAND: TAUNGYOS OF THE MYELAT

The Taungyos are a mixed race who live in the Myelat district between the main plain of Burma and the Shan States proper. A sturdy people, they speak a language full of archaic Burmese words, but deny any relationship to the Burmese. The basket carried by the woman on the is always taken to the market by every woman, filled with vegetables when going there and with Western articles on the homeward journey.
