Description:This session was recorde in Gorkha. We requested Tok Man to tell an old story and he told this story.
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 told by Tok Man who is good at telling stories. In this text he tells a story about a king whose name was Dharma Raja (holy king) and in fact he never committed crime. But one day, because of his minister he committed a crime. After his death he was sent to hell. Later a sage reached hell being a fly and met the king. The king sent a message to his sons they should serve a cow and Brahmin. They did accordingly and at last a calf rescued them from hell.
Mr. Krishna Prasad Chalise is affiliated to The Central Department of Linguistics, Tribhuvan University. In this project he has been working as a researcher.
