Dordzhi says that the heroine of the famous Kalmyk song ‘Aakin kyukn Kotush’ was the daughter of a man called Yagyan Dorzhi from the Zod clan. One day Yagyan Dorzhi went to the Don where he found a job with scoundrels who sent him home penniless after employing for three years. One day the scoundrels came to Yagyan Dorzhi’s village where they were fed with vodka and killed one by one on Yagyan Dorzhi’s instructions.
