Summary of Interview 091034B with Nyamsüren

In the second part of his interview he talked about being the People’s Ih Hural deputy in 1990 and how he has assisted in approving the Constitution. In the socialist period the dargas and the sum dargas had no right to wrestle. When he was an aimag livestock husbandry production department darga and the animal husbandry specialist in charge of the aimag breeding issue in 1965, he visited the Bugat sum anniversary feast and he wrestled with the state lion Jamiyandorj who lifted a camel, the state elephant Badam, the state elephant ‘pointed hat’ Gombodorj and having won he was awarded a horse. He recalled that because of this measures were taken against him.

The cultural campaign began in the 1960s during the socialist period. It had an important effect for creating the conditions for the Mongolian people to become literate, to live a clean, neat and civilized life. It delivered the Mongolian people from various diseases.

Talking about the 1990 democracy and the privatization process he said the Choibalsan collective he had worked in gave the shares to the sum citizens who became the shareholders when the collective was being established. Those who had been abroad and elsewhere or in Ulaanbaatar city, also the district police officers, the state organization, the school and kindergarten teachers all got a certain share and it has become an example nationwide.

He is proud of being the grandfather of the singer Amarhüü and he shared his thoughts about the press writing various false things about his grandson. He wishes they would stop doing that. He also told about his own family. It was very interesting to read this interview of a genuine Mongolian man who has a repertoire for singing at feasts and who won three rounds in the naadam wrestling. Besides that it is also possible to listen to his long song.
