Gal Nurma Khan (Part 2) The Fourth Branch

Where people ate three satisfying meals a day,
Where people celebrated three festivals a year,
Was the kingdom of Ganga Bured Khan.… Read the rest

Geser Comes Down to Earth (Part 3)

The Second Branch
Geser Comes Down to Earth (Part 3)

After this had happened,
Nyuhata Nyurgai rode his mousy brown colt,
Strapping on his tiny bow and quiver
He rode about randomly,
Riding fast,
Riding mightily,
Going at a quick pace,
He galloped about his homeland.… Read the rest
