Description:This is a story of three queens of a king, named Jasuta, Kausila and Subadri. Among these three the former two did not give birth to a child whereas Subadri gave birth to a child. Since the child was very cute, Jasuta and Subadri decided to flow the child after keeping it in the golden box. The child was finally found by a Kumal and grew up there. Lastly, when the king again decided to marry again, he happened to go and see the girl. Although the king decided to marry, she did not agree as she realized that he (the king) was his real father.
This project aims to document Baram, a seriously endangered language of Nepal, for its preservation and promotion. For this purpose, we will develop a corpus of the various texts of the Baram language and thereby prepare resources such as its sketch grammar, lexicon and ethnographic profile. To revitalize the language, we will develop Baram orthography and prepare a Baram primer to facilitate its use in basic education and literacy programmes. The audio-video recordings of the Baram database will be archived with its annotation in a website for its accessibility to linguists, ethnographers and the Baram speech community.
