Description:It is a session recorded in Kirtipur, Kathmandu. The speaker talks about the events which might take place after 20 years. It is semi-controlled session. The speaker was given the topic and he spoke on 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.
In this story Tok Man Baram imagines about something which will happen after 20 years. In his imagination he presents some relatives like grand-son, grand-daughter etc. will be grown up. One school which is now in primary level will became secondary. He also compares his village with other cities where he visited during his life time. He also imagines his relatives after 20 years will remember him as a farsighted man.
