Summary of Interview 090213B with Nadmid
In the beginning of the interview she compared her childhood with the present day children’s upbringing. She talked about visiting her younger sister in Bornuur and shared her thoughts about city life.
Since the beginning of the democratic process consumer goods became scarce and it was tough. Nevertheless, now everything became sufficient. She briefly mentioned about her son who had been involved in a hunger strike. There had been many Chinese in Hovd and they used to grow vegetables. She also mentioned about the changes in the nature and environment - the green grass has ceased to grow in Hovd and the spring waters have dried up.
At the end she talked about her two daughters who were working at the clothing factory. One of them now works in the Czech Republic. In the socialist period the singers Tumendemberel, Urtnasan visited Hovd and gave a concert. She talked in detail about the funeral rituals. In the olden times the dead were covered with white cloth and put out in the open. In the later days they were put in a box and the names together with the date of birth and the date of death were imprinted on a headstone. She told the story of the passing away of her parents and the old people.
