Description:In this recording, grandmothers Rufom and Ruchon reminisce about good old days. They are filled with nostalgia, and wonder about things that have changed. Sometimes they are amused and at other times pained that things are no longer the same. While they would like to revive some of the old customs, they also understand that this needs to be done with love and understanding, not constant with reprimands. Recording conditions: This was recorded in somewhat noisy village surroundings, at Rufom's (the lady sitting with Ruchon) house. Some background talk, and on careful listening, constant bass thuds of a music system at a distance can be heard. Recording equipment: Sony PJ540 video camera for video, and one Audio Technica 803B Omnidirectional lapel microphone on each participant. The sound was separately recorded on Marantz 661 MKII and mixed with the video later using windows movie maker. The original video was compressed to ELAR requirements using Handbrake. Original recording settings: Stereo with 44.1 KHz sampling rate. Video filming and framing: Due to low light conditions the video is grainy. Against the current practice of language documentation, there is some zooming during the recordings - I was new to language documentation and yet to learn that zooming on the face and leaving out gestures isn't a good idea! ELAN transcription: In progress. Do not use till further notice.

(née Degio) Married to the late Trombu Dususow, Ruchon has 2 living children: Kalow Dususow and Kilim 'Noni' Jebisow. Age is self-assessed. Original village: Bana, married into Buragaon
