The book launch ceremony of Platon Oyunsky's "Uluu Kudangsa" translated in Kyrgyz language by the Kyrgyz poet, playwright and translator Altynai Temirova was held in Bishkek.
According to ECO Cultural Institute quoting Kabar.kg, Temirova said during a press conference at the Kabar agency that the book contains translations of stories by Platon Oyunsky, the founder of Yakut literature.
"The book is a very complex work that opens up the deep world of shamans, reflecting the worldview and folklore of the Sakha people. When I myself read and translated Oyunsky's work, I had a feeling of fear and surprise by the stories described. There is a moment in this work, similar to the story of our Kurmanzhan Datka, who sacrificed her son for the sake of the people, "Temirova added.
