Summary of Interview 090637B with Sodnomdarjaa

The people in the old days deeply revered the mountain Eh Suvarga of the river Orhon. In his childhood they settled in their autumn camping place and the calf’s stall and the fences were built at the bottom of the rocks among the berries. So, they ate berries when milking the cows, they ate them when pulling the mares. With the development of technology the trees are not sawed but they were pulled down and dragged messing up the soil. The trees and the waters of the beautiful mountains have been done away with. The places where various lamas and our forefathers have been buried were dug. As a native citizen of this sum he submitted a paper to the President requesting to make the Suvarga mountain a state worshipped mountain, thinking it might decrease the misusage of it. He is preparing some documents on the history of the bag with the aim to establish a sum museum. His bag he has carried for 25 years working as a brigade darga. It was a rare thing to find. He ordered and bought it at the Choir station. Nowhere else could you find it. He made reports between the sum and the brigade, and his main device was this abacus in a case.
