This is a self-introduction by Phanindra Rai, who is acknowledged to be one of the best speakers of Koyi Rai, even by elders. He is the son of a now-deceased shaman, and as his father taught him the ritual chants, it is he who trains new shamans in the language of the ritual. [As we were transcribing the story, Phanindra realized that the audio recording for this piece was not as complete as he would have liked, and added additional details (which will appear in a written form elsewhere, as there is no corresponding recording)]
