Show Summary

It frequently happens that as soon as the operation has been performed on an arakurta [youth between circumcision and subincision] one or more of the other men present, who have been operated on before, stand up and voluntarily undergo a second operation. In such cases the men do not consider that the operation has been carried far enough . . . and some come forward a third time, though a man is often as old as thirty or thirty-five before he submits to this second operation.1
