Summary of Interview 090636B with Yondonjamts

At that time he came to my future wife’s place riding a white horse at night. In other words, he stole her and together with his friends he put a hadag in front of their god and took her away. Almost by the morning the people of his homeland came and they congratulated us with some money. It was so nice. After three days his father-in-law came with 2-3 people on horses. After he came from the military his mother worked a lot to provide him with a home.

Democracy gave the property to the owners. It opened a free way to enhance the living conditions and let people be engaged in manufacture and service. In the olden times, the people with merits who worked well were sent abroad by the state. And nowadays whoever wishes can go abroad freely. Perhaps this is a gain from democracy.
