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 18, late afternoon, children in the Tawnany Tole courtyard. Two young girls attempt unsuccessfully to pull a third lying on a mat, all are giggling. Mongolas, a 5 year old boy sometimes teased and antagonized by the other boys, is pushed around by them, but laughs as they do. He acts dead, or as if he is being killed, as one boy uses a stick to "saw" off his legs and then his neck. A young girl sits with her baby sister and the two of them share some kind of snack food, either beaten rice or roasted corn kernels. Some boys play with a tire, rolling it with a wire as they run around the courtyard, and an old man fills a burlap bag with red peppers that were drying in the sun. September 19, afternoon, in an uncommon display of anger a woman standing in a doorway yells and gestures toward someone in the courtyard way-house who is not in view. This immediately followed a boy from her family walking through the courtyard hurt and crying, and then going into his house. Three men, one with a baby, squat in another doorway. One man wears a shawl, typical dress for men in Nepal in cooler weather. The oldest man, the baby's grandfather, winds thread he has wrapped onto his foot, onto a stick. When the baby wanders over to him the baby's father calls for his younger sister to remove the baby. She does, in a very non-threatening way, and walks the baby across the courtyard and back. September 20, 7 AM, boys fly a paper kite near the shrine SW of the Tawnany Tole courtyard. Another boy washes a water buffalo in a large puddle. Several little girls pick saag (like spinach) from a garden. A woman returns from a field carrying a scythe, hoe, and drinking water vessel. Some views back toward the courtyard showing the houses of the SW side of Thecho.
