Description:This was recorded at the site office of LEDBL at Gorkha in the beginning days of data gathering in the field. We had invited Dambar Bahadur Baram and Tok Man Baram from Danda Gaun Gorkha as language consultants. Since Tok Man was ready to tell us about the origin of Hashish, he told us this story. This is a story about Shivaj.
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.
This is a story of Shivaji, Garuda (a mythical bird in which Shivaji flew) and the monkey which took place in Brindraban, a nice forest. Finally this story relates to the origin of hashish and hemp. In this story Tok says that if Shivaji takes hemp, nothing happens to him. Contrary to this, if taken without saying anything, it heavily intoxicates. Tokman says he heard this story in his village when he was small.
