GANGA RIVER, GANGA LAKE, FOLKTALES AND POETRY: THE FIVE OF US
G. Mend-Ooyo
 
ABSTRACT
Gombojavyn Mend-Ooyo is a living legend of contemporary times. He is one of the most infuential surviving poets of the world. Mend-Ooyo is the force behind revival of almost lost Mongolian script. His works refect an alternative to the global capitalism. His writings bring the nomadic tradition alive. Mend- Ooyo’s rhapsody of nomadism with a powerful melody enlivens the longing for the stage of In-Between, the Sunyata(Emptiness) . His works prepare ground work for ‘another” thinking, fuid and void. Ooyo compares his verses with the music of Mongolia’s national music instrument Morin Khurr. He expresses in this essay the quest for the Holy land of India in Mongolian imagination. India is indeed connected with the turquoise sky and green pastures of Mongolia.
