Scope and Contents:
Film footage shot by Barbara Johnson among the Jyapu subcaste of the Newars of Tawnany Tole, Thecho village in Kathmandu Valley, Nepal; August 30, 3 to 5 PM, children playing in the Tawnany Tole courtyard. Older girls entertain themselves by walking with one girl's younger brother who is just learning to walk. A favorite activity of girls in their early teens is to entertain a crawling age baby. They talk about their siblings as "my little boy" and "your little girl" to each other. See camera log page 7, CR 40, for filmmaker's speculations about the engaging personalities of the children who have the benefit of older siblings who lavish this kind of attention on them. This footage includes a circle game and noisy group play, and ends with views of old men in the courtyard. August 31, 7 to 10 AM, courtyard early morning activities. Quiet vignettes show small fairly quiet groups of both children and adults before they go inside to eat the morning meal of rice. There is a shot of a bicycle belonging to a man named Bailal, son of the sister of the head of one of the better off households in the courtyard. Bailal and his wife occupy a poor back house off of the main house, presumably because his father, from another village, did not leave him any house or land. He holds a menial job in Kathmandu, and the bicycle is his means of transportation. Just before the shot of the bicycle was filmmed Bailal's cousin Godi, the only son of the head of the household, walked up to the bicycle, kicked it, and went inside his house and started yelling at someone outside, presumably Bailal. His yelling can be heard during l or 2 shots after the bicycle shot. Later film shows a group of children focusing around a pit openning activity. A girl in a gold color print dress had just done something to a little boy in the background to make him cry. Film shows a variety of touching and small interactions. September 1, more courtyard activities, a mother and girls in doorway pleasurably socializing, another mother, Tulushimaya, grooming one of her daughters in the open way house building in the center of the courtyard, children play with kites.

Scope and Contents:
Film footage shot in early September by Barbara Johnson among the Jyapu subcaste of the Newars of Tawnany Tole, Thecho village in Kathmandu Valley, Nepal; several observations of children interacting with each other and with adults. A small girl remains near but apart from a group of girls, crying, possibly for her mother. Boys play with a corncob on a piece of string, one dangling it out of a window as the other bats at it; soy beans hang to dry off of adjacent rafters. An older woman podding soybeans allows a toddler of no relation to her to crawl into her lap as she works. The camera focuses on a boy about 6 years old entertaining his 2 year old sister to distract her from the piece of film he has hidden in his pocket. A mother nurses one child as she plays a game with an older daughter, pretending to "hit away" another young girl everytime the girl approaches them; they all smile. Another mother of a 2 month old takes her blouse off so that an older daughter can rub oil on her back; being rubbed with mustard oil is a daily ritual for both mothers and their newborns. These incidents characterize the high level of interaction among related as well as non-related members of this community.

Film footage shot by Barbara Johnson among the Jyapu subcaste of the Newars of Tawnany Tole, Thecho village in Kathmandu Valley, Nepal: September 4, mid morning and late afternoon; A group of boys antagonize a 5 year old boy. He makes an angry gesture, common among adults, with the back of his hand, but does not actually strike anyone. See filmmaker's camera log for CR46 for more background on the interaction with this boy. September 5 late afternoon, September 6 mid-morning, and September 13, early and late morning: A father sits in a doorway with his children; several boys play a hand slapping game, one boy holds a hand out as another boy pats it several times with the palms of both hands; some girls play jump rope as some boys play a pitching game with stones. Boys and girls often play separately. People gather around the water tap to wait for the water to be turned on. Mustard seed that has been drying in the sun is put in a sack. As their mother spreads mustard seed to dry on a mat two young children tie leaves, with holes cut in them for their eyes, on their faces with twine, imitating a masked dancer, a man masquerading as a witch figure, they had seen the evening before. An older woman uses a traditional kitchen utensil to cut a type of leaf stalk that will be eaten with the morning meal. A courtyard mother nurses her only child, a walking age little girl.

Film footage shot by Barbara Johnson among the Jyapu subcaste of the Newars of Tawnany Tole, Thecho village in Kathmandu Valley, Nepal: September 15, 4PM, CR52: a boy and girl play a sitting game with stones under the Buddha statue or Chaitya in the Tawnany Tole courtyard while the girl's two year old brother plays with water nearby. The girl lifts her brother out of the water, laughing. See filmmaker's daily log for description of festival preparations beginning this day. It was the first day of the festival called Indra Jattra in Nepali, though the filmmaker's "mother" referred to it as YenyaPhuni. Phuni means full moon. Special foods were cooked during the day, including roast meat and small bean cakes, everyone bathed and put on clean clothes, and in the evening there were household rituals and a sharing of ceremonial food among neighbors in the courtyard. September 16, late morning to mid-day, CR 53 and 54: preparation for and activity of a full moon Buddhist religious ceremony (Phuni Puja) in the Tawnany courtyard. Bamboo poles hold a mandop, or fringed white canopy abouve the courtyard's small stupa, or Buddha statue. Colorful paper ornaments are huyng from the canopy; rows of small shallow clay pots to hold oil and wicks, called dep, are placed in tiers in front of the statue. A Buddhist priest, or Gubaju, from the village of Baregaon, directs the preparations, leads the singing and chanting, and intructs the participants throughout the ceremony. During the preparations, filmed from the filmmaker's third floor window, the Gubaju sits on a mat with several men; between their palms they all roll clay into small conical shapes resembling the stupa and place them on a brass plate. A kailash, or brass vessel filled with water and flowers, symbolizing the universe, is placed on the ground before the statue. Eventually a spirit invoked in the worship activities will enter the vessel. Several kinds of rice are used to decorate the area around the statue. The priest decorates a plate holding flowers and some rice with red "holy powder", a fine dust, and then puts the plate in a small brick-lined depression in front of the Buddha. A boy helps the priest wrap pieces of string into circles; these will later be used by the participants in the ceremony, who will at appointed moments during the worship drape them around water and flower vessels. A sunkha, or large conch shell, one of eight auspicious symbols of the universe, is placed on a small iron tripod between the priest and the statue. Women are tending grains and chillies spread to dry on mats throughout the courtyard. Children of all ages play and watch the preparations for the ceremony. Many, both boys and girls, are holding or watching their younger siblings. A boy and girl get into an argument when the boy takes something from the girl and tries to stick it into the cloth wrapped around her waist, called a "janni". She slaps his arm and chases him, he pushes her, and they start to fight facing each other. At this point a young teenage girl and a woman with a baby rush in and laughingly separate them. The puja is nearly ready to begin. A boy reads from a prayer book as the oldest man in the courtyard, sitting next to the priest, and probably the man who has financed the ceremony, drips water slowly out of a smaller conch shell as the priest begins to recite prayers. The priest then gives the man some flower petals, which he shreds and places on the spot where he dripped the water; the priest rings a bell, a female symbol of mercy. A metal crown with a double trident embossed on its top sits in front of him, indicating that he is a tantric buddhist priest. When it starts to rain several women who have been watching the ceremony scatter to gather the grains they have had drying on mats. A woman gets her 7 - 8 year old son away from the puja and tells him to gather up the corn from a mat while she puts away grain from another mat. Someone brings umbrellas to the priest and the other men seated around the statue.

Film footage shot by Barbara Johnson among the Jyapu subcaste of the Newars of Tawnany Tole, Thecho village in Kathmandu Valley, Nepal; CR 73, October 3, early morning in the Tawnany Tole courtyard. Older girls with younger brothers on their backs check their crocheting together. A young girl sits near the courtyard statue of Buddha while other children climb on it and play a stone toss game. Children share. Younger girls watch an older girl crochet, while a courtyard man, Bailal, works of his bicycle in the background. Bailal has a menial job in Kathmandu. An older sister takes a piece of rope from her younger sister and brings it to the courtyard way-house, or pathi. A grandmother arranges her hair while her grandchild climbs on her lap. Tulushimaya's children look out on the courtyard from their doorway, one of the girls urinates into the courtyard gutter. A group of children leave the courtyard together, younger children on the backs of 7 - 8 year old girls, to do some work outside the courtyard. Four year old Nankumari sitts on a mat in the courtyard, smiles at the camera. Later she gets absorbed in working with a needle(?), while her older sister Mayle stands nearby with her baby brother on her back. Another older girl sits with her younger sibling who is looking at a piece of corn husk. Three boys wind up some rope in the way-house. A mother helps her son remove his shirt, then checks it for body lice. She dries her wet hair in the sun, her son brings her a flower, and then nurses, as others are spreading grains out on mats in the courtyard. CR 74, mid-dayon October 3, the widow Nakali, with whom the filmmaker stayed, beats some dried branches (from old chilli pepper plants?) in front of her house, while the children from next door, her great neices, watch and squabble with each other. The younger girl, Cyrimaya, has something that her older sister Nankumari takes. When Cyrimaya can't get it back she takes a coin from her pocket and conspicuously holds, drops and picks it up while Nakali works. Tulushimaya, mother of 6 daughters, no sons, puts silver barretts in her oldest daughter's hair, while a group of women, older girls and children sit in the courtyard way-house. Nakali sits outside her house, shooing chickens from grain spread on mats with a long stick, and talking with Cyrimaya and Nankumari. Three boys of different ages play. Two older girls who are relatives of Nakali, Baramaya and Gangamaya, tie up chilli branches and corn stalks. A cry goes out that it's raining "Wa walla" and everyone in the courtyard moves to get the grain off their mats. Cyrimaya and her mother, Gyanmaya put grain in a sack, then Cyrimaya plays with a winnowing basket, rolls up a mat, and imitates her mother while her mother works. A boy nearby hits and pushes a dog. CR 75, 6 - 7:30 AM, October 4, scenes around the courtyard water tap, which runs once in the morning and once in the evening each day. Boys dressed in school clothes wash their faces, a woman fills a water jar, a father comes out of his house and calls his daughters. A sister washes her younger brother's face, and they have to move to let water buffalos pass. Another girl sets a dish of flowers on a water jar while she washes her face. The oldest grandfather in the courtyard and some girls all perform morning devotions around the Buddha statue, offering water libations, flowers, touching their heads to each of 4 sides of the Buddha statue, circling clockwise 3 times, and marking themselves with red powder tikka marks on their foreheads. Other children come and remove the flowers from the statue. Children play in and near thecourtyard way-house as it starts to rain.
