Summary of Interview 090732B with Demberel
In the second part of the interview Gombyn Demberel talked about the coming of democracy, livestock privatization and that it was the right thing to give the livesstock to the herders and she considers it was the effect of democracy.
Also, she talked about how the Mongolians buried the dead and funeral rituals and the present day funeral ceremonials. She talked about the children of today who don’t like to tend livestock, how she first saw the city and listened to the radio for the first time. Watching the present day parliament members attending the meeting, there comes an involuntary thought ‘what do these people resolve and what do they know?’ At the end of her interview she concluded about herself that she had worked and lived this life until she acquired the surname of milkmaid Demberel and not Gombyn Demberel.
