Description:This session was recorded in Gorkha. Daraundi and Chepe are bigger rivers in that area. There are several legends and stories related to the rivers. We asked Dambar to tell us any story related to the rivers 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 related to Daraundi and Chepe rivers. There are several legends and stories related to the rivers. This story is related to the quarrel between two kings, the king of Lamjung and Gorkha. Elder brother was king in Lamjung and younger one in Gorkha. They had a quarrel and the mother solved it. After that the colour of the water in Chepe became white and in Daraundi became dark. Apart from this he has mixed a description of a Jatra observed on the bank of the rivers.
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.
Mr. Krishna Paudel is a Research Assistant (RA) in this project. He has been actively participate in the field work, computing and other activeities.
