The voices from Chitwan: Some examples of the Tharus' oral tradition


Müller-Böker, Ulrike (1999). The voices from Chitwan: Some examples of the Tharus' oral tradition. Himalaya, 19(2):45-48.

Abstract

The oral tradition of scriptless communities helps us to understand much about their history, livelihood strategies,
evaluation of the natural environment and last but not least, their culture. The following stories were collected during my fieldwork in Chitwan on knowledge, evaluation and utilization of the natural environment in Chitin (Müller-Böker 1999). They illustrate the notions Tharus have about important aspects of their life.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
