Description:Previouslly, Dambar was the Chairman of Antar Jyoti Lower Secondary School, Takukot-8. Always he would be interested to talk about his experiences during this period. This one of his many experiences he had had during that period.
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 text Dambar talks about his memories of the events that happened to him when he went to Ghyampesal to attend a meeting of the Chair persons of management committees of the schools in that area. Apart from the events that happened to him, he describes the paths to walk, people, etc.
Mr. Dubi Nanda Dhakal is a Research Assistant (RA) in this project. He has been actively participate in the field work, computing and other activeities.
Mr. Dambar Bahadur Baram is a fluent speaker of Baram language. We started to work with him from the beginning of the project and have taken several texts from him. He is a good story teller and good at role playing. But he has got one problem that his texts are generally lack coherence.
