Summary of Interview 090603B with Anonymous
At the start of the interview she briefly talked about the newly introduced techniques and technology during socialism and about the chances of the ordinary people to communicate with the people of the foreign countries. She also talked about her friend Nadya, a young Russian woman with whom she had been friends for over ten years and from whom she had learnt many things. She talked about the life and work of the Chinese who lived in Mongolia.
She worked as a darga of the pharmacy at the beginning of the democratic movement in the 1990s. She privatized the pharmacy that was evaluated at ten million tögrögs with the pink coupons she had collected. In the first years it required a lot of manpower and labour to procure and compound medicine but soon she was successful. Though there are good sides to democracy like giving freedom to the people and the opportunity to communicate with foreign countries, she mentioned many errors of that time such as that privatization was carried out in wrongly and the economy of the nation wasn’t guided in the right way.
At the end she briefly mentioned her working at the Red Cross Society, the family life in the socialist period and funeral rituals.
