Summary

A census of Baragaon, dealing with the component settlements of the enclave in the follow- ing order: Dangardzong; Phelag; Pagling; Kag; Tiri; Taye; Tshug; Gyaga; Samar ; Tsele; Te; Putra; Chongkhor; Dzong; Purang; Dzar; Khyinga; Lubra. Only Sangdag, the remotest com- munity in Baragaon, is absent from the list.

There are four entries per community: 1. The total number of people and livestock; 2. the number of humans (pho mo); 3. the number of dzos, yaks, donkeys and bulls; 4. the number of buck goats. It is not clear why male goats and cattle should have been selected for census, and not the females. While the term glang might conceivably include cows, it is certain that ra pho denotes only buck goats. The numbers involved would otherwise be too small: a live- stock census from Te (Tibetan Sources vol. 1, HMA/Te/Tib/12) gives the total number of goats as 9,548. Although both documents are undated, it is unlikely that there should be such an enormous change in the numbers of goats kept in the community.

The overall (l. 74 dzam ma, < Nep. jamma, ’total’) figures for Baragaon are:

People, ’adults and children’: 2948 Dzos, yaks, donkeys and bulls: 1562 Buck goats: 5488
