Elder Sister. Part II

Larisa Shoigu meeting with colleagues in Medical College, Kyzyl. November, 7 2007Larisa Shoigu meeting with colleagues in Medical College, Kyzyl. November, 7 2007- Larisa Kuzhugetovna, why did you choose the profession of a physician?

- I am ashamed to admit it, but it was a spontaneous decision. My friends and classmates, Nina Kravtsova and Tanya Filippova were planning to go to medical school, but I vacillated between journalistics or mathematics, I was interested in the Novosibirsk mathematics school. As far as journalistics were concerned, Papa had a serious talk with me, telling me what I remembered for the rest of my life: as a journalist, you either have to be very good, or you’ll spend the rest of your life correcting proofs. Mathematics somehow spontaneously sloughed off.

So I followed my friends into medicine. And I never regretted it.

But we did not just dive in without thinking. We decided to test ourselves beforehand – can we or can’t we? And we tested ourselves in the morgue.

Census in Tuva: 80 years ago

The doctor of economical sciences took the proposal to carry out a combination demographic and agricultural census in Tuvan People’s republic very seriously. In six months, he learned the Tuvan language, read everything that was ever written about the remote Uriangkhai, and went to Tuva.

- The stories you write are very unusual. Tell us, please, how you started to write.

- I started writing five years ago, because there was an obvious need for literature for children. Everybody liked the first book, “Stories for baby elephant Lanchenkar”.

Tuvan tour business representatives studied basics of eco-tourism in Gornyi Altai

Tuvan tour business representatives studied basics of eco-tourism in Gornyi AltaiRepresentatives of tour business of Tuva went to Gornyi Altai to learn about the basics of eco-tourism and tourism in specially protected natural territories in Gornyi Altai. The opportunity for this exchange of experience was offered by the WWF project “Protected territories – for a living planet!”. The year 2010 has been declared the Year of Tourism in Tuva. Unfortunately, the development of tourism in Tuva is slowed down because of inaccessibility of the area, and of lack of infrastructure and experience in this type of work, along with weak advertisement of Tuva as a touristic product. However, for example, the neighboring republic Altai successfully arranged conditions in which the remote region (lack of aviation) turned into a Mecca of internal tourism, into a true tourist hallmark of Russia.

Nikolai Rastorguyev felt like a nomad in Tuva

Nikolai Rastorguyev felt like a nomad in TuvaNikolai Rastorguyev and his group “Lyube” presented two concerts in the Tuvan capital. The audience of the first one consisted of front-line veterans, veterans of local wars, of work, and the staff of law-enforcement organs. “It was such a pleasure! – tells us blockade participant Tatiana Afonicheva. – I sang along, I cried a bit. Such songs! They go right to the heart. At home during family celebrations, we always sing the song “Combat” with my husband and children. And the theatre has become so beautiful! Chandeliers like at the Mariinskiy. Everything glitters. I have been to many concerts in Leningrad, and I have something to compare it to, but here in Tuva it is now just as good. I liked the “Lyube” concert so much that I went back to the square at 19 hours to listen some more. There was a huge crowd of young people. So many people. I sang along until I got too cold for me.”

A Manul cat injured by a hawk was healed and released in Tuva

A Manul cat injured by a hawk was healed and released in TuvaLast August, Kyzyl residents Eres and Natalia Dambar-ool became witnesses of a tragedy which clearly demonstrated the brutality of the law of survival among the denizens of wild nature.

The family was traveling towards Shagonar. Suddenly they both noticed that a raptor bird nearby was shaking something viciously.  As they got out of the car, the bird flew away, abandoning its prey. Eres and Natalia approached closer and found out that the bird’s victim was a tiny manul kitten. (Manul cat, Pallas’s cat, Otocolobus manul, Felis manul). The Dambar-ool family did not think of leaving him there in such a condition, and decided to save the mangled kitten and bring it with them.

The history of the best known photo from the war years discovered in Tuva

The history of the best known photo from the war years discovered in TuvaThe history of one of the most famous photographs from the war years, which has been a part of the exhibition dedicated to the Great patriotic War in Kyzyl, and which has become the main symbol of the Moscow exhibition “Tuvinian People’s Republic – everything for common victory!” was finally revealed today.

The photo was often exhibited without any captions at all. The caption in Tuvan museum was brief: Boris lama and Usov. And even though there was a lot written about Boris Shombulovich Lama, the orderly of the commander of Tuvan cavalry squadron, Adyg-Tulush Kechil-ool, there was nothing at all known about the other hero of the photograph.
