Southern Mongolians.

Understanding China

For the seven months in Daban I’ve been unable to find out any information about the Mongolians. People would put me off, or say they didn’t know, or they’d get back to me. Now that I am living with a plurality of them I am beginning to learn more.
The Mongolians here in Daban do not seem to have much to do with the Chinese, frequently not bothering to learn the language or have any dealings with them. One little shop I often visit which makes traditional Mongolian garments and headdresses has 5 employees and only one speaks and reads Chinese. Every time I drop in, the Bible is open on their work bench!
There is a separate school system for the Mongolians which, the Chinese tell me, is inferior to the Chinese schools, but if that is so the Mongolians have made no attempt to transfer to Chinese schools!

Mongolia’s Dilemma: Who Gets The Water?

Mongolia’s Dilemma: Who Gets The Water?


by

May 22, 2012

Mongolia, the land of Genghis Khan and nomadic herders, is in the midst of a remarkable transition. Rich in coal, gold and copper, this country of fewer than 3 million people in Central Asia is riding a mineral boom that is expected to more than double its GDP within a decade. The rapid changes simultaneously excite and unnerve many Mongolians, who hope mining can help pull many out of poverty, but worry it will ravage the environment and further erode the nation’s distinctive, nomadic identity.

Second of four parts

The Central Asian nation of Mongolia has untold riches in copper, coal and gold, which could help many of its nearly 3 million people — more than one-third of whom live in poverty.

But mining is also reshaping Mongolia’s landscape and nomadic culture. Camel and goat herders worry that new mega-mines will siphon off precious water in an area that’s already suffering from the effects of climate change.

Mijiddorj Ayur, whose livestock graze near the Oyu Tolgoi mine, tends camels in a stretch of Mongolia’s South Gobi province that’s a moonscape of sand and gravel. He relies on the animals for meat, wool and milk, and they rely on hand-pumped well water to survive.

“When we come to the well, we can see the level of the well water is 8 inches lower than it used to be,” says Mijiddorj, 76, who wears a golden, double-breasted robe called a deel and a brimmed felt hat.

Mijiddorj — Mongolians typically go by one name — says the well water has dropped in the last several years because of lower rainfall, while the grasslands are shrinking because of rising temperatures from climate change.

Now, he sees another potential threat: Oyu Tolgoi, a giant mine that will need huge amounts of water to process copper ore. The company has already drilled test wells near where Mijiddorj’s camels drink.

“My greatest fear is we won’t have water,” he says. “I don’t care about the gold or the copper, I’m just afraid there won’t be water.”

My greatest fear is we won’t have water. I don’t care about the gold or the copper, I’m just afraid there won’t be water.

– Mijiddorj Ayur, whose livestock graze near Oyu Tolgoi mine

Threats To Traditional Herding

It’s a worry echoing across South Gobi province, a mix of rocky desert and grassland where drought periodically wipes out herds. It’s home to thousands of herders and about a million head of livestock.

Officials from Oyu Tolgoi, which has been under construction since mid-2010, say the mine will draw water from a deep aquifer that won’t affect wells like Mijiddorj’s. But he and other herders are suspicious.

They have already felt mining’s impact. Herders say mine trucks hit their animals and kick up dust that chokes pastureland. Indeed, almost all the roads in the area are dirt, and trucks trail plumes of dust so huge they look like they’re on fire.

A herder named Chuluunbaatar says he’s lost about 40 percent of the pastureland he uses, as well as many sheep, goats and camels, since Oyu Tolgoi built a nearby road a year and a half ago.

Herder Mijiddorj Ayur, 76, stands outside his home in South Gobi, Mongolia. He worries about the effects a local mine will have on his livelihood.

EnlargeJohn W. Poole/NPRHerder Mijiddorj Ayur, 76, stands outside his home in South Gobi, Mongolia. He worries about the effects a local mine will have on his livelihood.

“Some of them died, because they were exhausted because there was not enough pasture,” he says. He adds that he had to kill some dying animals and sell their meat in order to salvage some of their value.

A Question Of Compensation

Oyu Tolgoi — which means “Turquoise Hill” in Mongolian, a name that refers to the color copper turns when it’s exposed to oxygen — is owned by global mining giant Rio Tinto and Canada’s Ivanhoe Mines, as well as the Mongolian government.

The mine has offered herders compensation, including simple jobs helping livestock cross roads, in a country where per capita GDP is about $2,500, according to the Mongolia government.

Many herders have signed compensation agreements, but Myagmardorj Mijiddorj, a local government official, says some herders already working for the company complain of coercion.

“Oyu Tolgoi employs people for maybe $230 a month,” says Myagmardorj. “When the people are reluctant to sign the contract, they say: ‘You are an employee and you have to sign it or there will be measures.'”

The biggest risk we face is that we will be seen to be a land of plenty in a sea of stress.

– Mark Newby, Oyu Tolgoi water adviser

In other words, Myagmardorj says, they’ll be out of a job.

“We never forced them to sign the agreement,” says Suugie Gonchigjantsan, who manages community relations for Oyu Tolgoi.

She denies that the company has pressured anyone and says the complaints are just a negotiating tactic.

“Some of the individuals really want to get more, more and more,” Suugie says.

The company’s compensation scheme is modest. One option, for instance, would provide an affected family with a $3,800 scholarship to put a child through college. In its first full year of operation, Oyu Tolgoi could produce about $900 million worth of gold and copper, according to company statistics.

So, why not give herders more money and quiet them down?

Suugie rules that option out. Any solution, she says, “has to be equal.”

Growing Competition For Water

Mark Newby, Oyu Tolgoi’s principal adviser for water resources, says the company has monitored more than 100 herder wells in the area for years.

He says Oyu Tolgoi has found no connection between the herder wells, which go down as far as 30 feet, and the aquifer the mine will draw from, which begins about 150 feet below the surface.

At full capacity, the mine will pump about 180 gallons per second from the aquifer. If herders’ wells are affected — which Newby says he seriously doubts — Oyu Tolgoi says it will fix the problem.

“In the very worst case, it would require the delivery of treated water to the herder,” he says. “For a typical herd, that would require up to a truckload a day.”

Newby says a bigger challenge may be managing perceptions and helping herders already struggling for water.

“The biggest risk we face is that we will be seen to be a land of plenty in a sea of stress,” he says.

John W. Poole/NPR

Once a wetland — one of the very few in the Gobi — this area has been drying up over the past several years, thanks to rising temperatures and lower rainfall.

Competition for water continues to grow across South Gobi province, which is about the size of Wisconsin. Outside the provincial capital of Dalanzadgad, local officials are at odds with Mongolia’s central government and a nearby coal mine.

Two years ago, local officials designated a nearby seasonal lake as a protected area. Last year, the central government reversed the decision and said the coal mine could pump out water underneath the lake.

“That is the only fresh water source of this whole area,” says Munkhjargal Batdorj, a local official. Munkhjargal says the central government has a stake in the mine — which like Oyu Tolgoi also has foreign ownership — and appears to be pursuing its own interests.

“The government is probably reversing its own decision because it’s just not caring about the people,” she says. “I think it’s a rotten decision.”

Who Benefits The Most?

Mining contributes heavily to both local and central government budgets, and residents complain that officials sometimes use the money to enrich themselves.

Rashboud Tumen, a grocer in Dalanzadgad, cites one local representative in particular.

He says the official had a Russian jeep and traded it in for a Toyota Land Cruiser 80. Then, a few months later, he traded that in for a Land Cruiser 105 — which an incredulous Rashboud notes costs $53,000.

More than 30 percent of Mongolians live on $1.25 a day.

“Animals die in the drought,” he says. “You could have bought livestock for 10 families. You could have done so much good with that $53,000. What does a Land Cruiser 105 do for local people? Nothing.”

As mines begin to pump more water from the Gobi, herders will be watching their wells and waiting. And as profits continue to pour into mineral companies, some Mongolians will continue to wonder what is in it for them.

KALMYK-AMERICANS RECOGNIZED BY JERSEY TELEVISION


Once a year, the Jersey Access Group, a forum for promoting quality operations for New Jersey’s public television stations, holds an awards ceremony to recognize video excellence from the previous year.
The winner in the category of “Diversity Programming” for 2011 was a program on “Kalymk-American Traditions” hosted by Angus Kress Gillespie. The program was broadcast by East Brunswick Television as part of Gilespie’s series “Old Ways in New Jersey.”
The program showcased the little-known group of about 3,000 Kalmyk-Americans in New Jersey. Their community was originally established during the 1950s in Howell, New Jersey. These people were originally refugees from Russia and were rapidly assimilated.
In the program, Gillespie interviewed Tserendorj Amarhanov, who is representative of the revival of Kalmyk culture around the world. Amaranhov was born in Philadelphia in 1980 and raised in the greater Philadelphia area.
He left America at the age of 17 and lived in both Kalmykia and Mongolia before returning to the U.S. at age 21. He is a Kalmyk folk-musician, multi-instrumentalist, composer and throat-singer.
Amarhanov is not only a musician, but also a historian and spokesman for the group, which has a fascinating history

The Hazara of Afghanistan: Cultural Exhibit & Lecture

The Hazara of Afghanistan: Cultural Exhibit & Lecture


By: Salman Heydari
           
The Hazara of Afghanistan: Cultural Exhibit & Lecture was developed to increase awareness of the rich history and cultural heritage of the Hazara people from Afghanistan, who now live throughout the world. The Hazara ethnic group, the third largest in Afghanistan, is a culture that has survived despite genocide and decades of political oppression at the hands of the Taliban and other Afghan regimes.
            The lecture and exhibit are the work of Mohammed Rezaee, who emigrated to the U.S. eight years ago.  He now lives in metro Atlanta with his wife and family.  He has delivered the lecture several times in the Atlanta area, at the same time showing photographs (taken by professional photojournalists) of Hazara life, using computer technology to show the photos in large-scale, living color.
            More than hundred Americans, including high level officials, attended the opening on January 17, 2012, an evening reception at which the Americans were served Hazaragi foods, (Bosragh and Pirki) prepared by Mr. Rezaee’s wife.   They were also invited to a display of Hazaragi clothes.
            After the gallery reception Mr. Rezaee gave a lecture about the history of Hazaras and the current conditions of the Hazara people. Also, a brief history of Hazaras, which was written by a famous Hazara historian, Haji Kazim Yazdani, was distributed to those in attendance in a brochure format.
            There was a separate opening for Afghans. Mr. Baisr Dolatabadi, Mr. Abdul Khaliq Hazara, and Ishaq Mohammadi gave lectures—via Skype—about Hazaras’ history, culture, customs, and the current condition of the Hazara people.
            The on-going photo exhibit features works of Hazara photojournalists Hafize Besharat, Muzafer Ali, Barat Ali Batoor, Sajad Goher and Mohammad Rezaee, which had never been seen before in the United States. The photo exhibit (large framed copies of the photographs) was on display at Tucker Public Library, metro Atlanta, until March 28, 2012. Many Americans visited the photo exhibition.
            The lecture-exhibit will again be presented, at no cost, on June 14, 2012.   Georgia Perimeter College, which is one of the largest of Georgia’s institutions, will host the presentation at their Dunwoody Campus. The photo exhibit will be open to the public through July 13, 2012.
 You are cordially invited to attend the lecture for the opening of the photography exhibit, on Jun 14, 2012. The lecture will include a food tasting, a display of traditional clothing items, and discussion of the history and unique culture of the Hazara people.

Heritage Auctions: Stop the auction of illegally collected Mongolian dinosaur fossils

Heritage Auctions: Stop the auction of illegally collected Mongolian dinosaur fossils


On May 20th, 2012 Heritage Auctions will place scientifically important fossils from Central Asia, including a Tyrannosaurus (also known as Tarbosaurus) bataar skeleton (lot 49315), on the auction block. These fossils are strongly suspected by scientists from Mongolia and the United States of having been illegally collected from Mongolia. Mongolian law forbids the export and sale of fossils collected in the country. The President of Mongolia, and scientists from Mongolia and the United States have spoken out against this apparent theft of the scientific heritage of Mongolia. These priceless scientific and natural resources belong to the people of Mongolia and should be returned to their rightful owners, not sold to the highest bidder.

If Hertiage Auctions has compelling evidence that these fossils were not illegally collected from Monglia they should disclose that information immediately.

Heritage Auctions: Stop the auction of illegally collected Mongolian dinosaur fossils

What I’ve Learned Tsem Tulku Rinpoche


In our May Meaning of Life Issue, we sit down for an interview with one of the country’s most avant-garde spiritual leaders. Tsem Tulku Rinpoche is a lama who founded the Buddhist organization Kechara, and can count living on the streets, being scouted for acting roles, and modelling as just some of the more unusual parts of his past. So it’s no surprise we wanted to sit down with him, and hear his thoughts on Madonna, Steven Seagal, and his role as a spiritual leader. We have included special soundbites from our interview, so listen away! Here are seven choice quotes:

I really didn’t want to be a monk just teaching compassion, and people walking off the streets, getting a blessing and walking out saying, “I didn’t understand anything.” I wanted to bring it out to contemporary people. I wanted people to look exactly as they look, but be different on the inside. (listen to this quote below:)

Romantic movies, I know the beginning, I know the middle, I know the end. It’s not even predictable. You don’t have to be a Tibetan psychic monk to know it. It’s just boring. (listen to this quote below:)

People’s general mentality towards spirituality is this: if I’m not happy, make me happy. I’m not at peace, so I come to get peace. I can’t get a girlfriend, I need your help to get one. They come with those kinds of motivations. And I look at them and say, “Take a real good look. Do I look like a dating agency?”

Oh, I wanted to be an actor. I chose to become a monk because it was an instruction from my teacher. And now, people tell me, you should have been an actor, then a monk, you would have been another Steven Seagal. But I thought to myself, don’t regret my path, just follow the path of what I’ve chosen. I trusted this old master all the way.

I said to myself, I’m going to blog about what I like. I’m not going to blog about what they expect. So you wouldn’t think it’s a Buddhist monk’s blog. I blog about Madonna, UFOs, food. I’m not trying to be different. Those are things I’m interested in. (listen to this quote below:)

What I like about Madonna is that she never stays stagnant. She’s very up-beat and with the times. “Girl Gone Wild”, I love that song. (we thought this whole segment about a monk talking about Madonna was so unique, we have included the entire portion where Rinpoche talks about her. Listen to this below:)

I dare say with the deepest respect to everyone, I don’t think one religion suits everyone.

We have also looked through the YouTube archives, and found some videos of Rinpoche before, during and after:

Rinpoche promoting his new show about the paranormal, which is set to air on NTV7 tentatively in August.

Read more about Tsem Tulku Rinpoche and other people like Ethan Hawke, Patrick Teoh, Dina Zaman, Alec Baldwin and more in our May Meaning of Life Issue, out now in newsstands. Interviewed by Jon Chew. Photograph by Paul Gadd.

Mongolian Language & Culture Classes Flushing , New York


You want to learn Mongolian Language ?
 
  • For personal development or to find new friendships
  • For work or business
  • To enter Further or Higher education
  • For travel
 As we begin our lessons, we will be communicating in English, however, little by little, we will be adding Mongolian words to our conversations.
Without noticing it, you will speak more and more Mongolian. In other words, you will be learning Mongolian  naturally.
Forget about learning methods where you only listen and repeat words, with my method you will speak real Mongolian.
You choose what you want to learn.
My lessons are one-to-one and entirely personalized. I prepare each lesson ONLY FOR YOU.
You have the freedom what you want to learn (basic Mongolian, business vocabulary, conversational Mongolian…) and I will create a learning program for you.
With other learning methods, every student has the same book and you learn what the teacher wants you to learn, however when studying with me, you will get customized lessons that were specifically designed to meet your needs.
I help my students develop better grammar so that they can master the Mongolian language.
If you are a tourist, just imagine the idea of knowing the basic language and the culture of the place you are visiting!
You will learn the absolutely necessary phrases and words that you may need during your tour. It does not depend on how proficient you are in Mongolian and at what stage of studying you are. You always feel prepared for the journey to Mongolia just in time.
If you are approaching an exam, you will be interested in grammar.
The confidence that comes with being prepared will reduce anxiety and give you the edge you need to succeed in school.
I suit my lessons and methods according to the kind of request I receive.
During our lessons I combine learning new vocabulary, proper sentence structure, as well as learning idioms and cliches.
The fact that I am conversationally fluent in everyday Mongolian and English gives me an advantage of a deep understanding of the relationship and differences between Mongolian and English languages.
   I can help you:
  •  Get the basics of the Mongolian language for traveling and working in Mongolian speaking countries?
  • Take your Mongolian language skills to the next level
  • Develop your business and professional Mongolian
  • Refresh the Mongolian you used to know but have forgotten
  • Improve your phonetics: accent and intonation
  • Polish up your existing Mongolian and build up your confidence in speaking it

It would be my honor to be a part of your educational future!

Pricing
All onsite language interpreter appointments are charged at a predetermined flat hourly rate for the first hour, and then in 15-minute increments for any additional time.

Pricing
Phone interpreter service is $1 per minute or $50 per hour.
