Description:
The narrator is somewhat distracted. The roles appear to be reversed in s5 and s6; s8 is no doubt intended as a correction, since it goes without saying that it is the boy (Rhododendron) who proposes to the girl (Alder). She refuses him. The story usually ends with Alder throwing herself off a cliff, accounting for the fact that alders are the first trees to colonize steep, eroded land. This is a well-known story in Nepali, and appears in children's readers. The narrator is an elderly woman, Jayalachhi (b. 1905, d. 1974).
