1996 Current Anthropology  
JFF: Most foreign scholars in Nepal regard you as the father of Nepalese anthropology. Can you tell us how you came to be an anthropologist? DBB: Professor [Christoph] von Furer-Haimendorf from London University was here to go to Solu-Khumbu for field research and was looking for an assistant/informant. I went and worked with him. That's how my interest in anthropology began. I happened to be the first Nepali student of anthropology. That's how I got the title.
