Description:We met Mina Baram at Gorkha near by our site office at Gorkha where she had come to her daughter's house to celebrate her grandson's grown up ceremony. She said she could speak her language but she had not spken it for last six years. We didn't have imagination that she could speak Baram so fluently, so we wanted to test her fluency of her language.This recording was done in a room in controlled situation.
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.
In this story, Mina narrates the myth of Rama and Sita. This is a long story which happened a long time ago. There are four main characters: Rama, Laxmana, Ravana and Sita. Rama and Laxman are brothers. Sita is wife of Rama. Ravana is a villain who takes Sita to Lanka, his place. Finally, Rama and Laxman fight him and take Sita back to their place.
