Artist D.Batmunkh’s Story of the Queen Alungoo, an ancestor of Chingis Khan (great grandmother – 11th generation) and her five sons. Queen Alungoo had five sons, but none of them got along with the others. The queen didn’t know how to bring peace into her family. Then one day she called her sons and gave an arrow to each of them.
She told them to break the arrow, and all succeeded easily. Then she made a bundle of five arrows and asked them to break it, but none could. She said: “My sons, you are like these arrows. If you are on your own, you will break easily. But when you are together, you are unbreakable. This is a great story where you can draw many different lessons in communication, leadership and conflict resolution, and most importantly, solidarity and unity.
