Description:This is a file recorded the site office of LEDBL at Gorkha in the beginning of data gathering in the field. We had invited Ram Bahadur Baram from Danda Gaun, Gorkha as language consultant. We asked him to tell us about a song. He told us it is impossible to get any song in Baram. Finally Dambar Bahadur Baram wrote this song whereas Ram Bahadur Baram sang it.
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 song consist of more than five stanzas. In each stanza, he desires to be equal to other people. He doesn't know why he feels this way, but he has a strong desire for being equal to other people. The Baram people had their own land from the reign of Dravya Shaha but nowadays they have very little land compared to the past. However, he does not know the reason
