In Burüshâski a gigantic dog or hound that is greedy and eager to bite is called qálmaque or Qálmaquee.
Qálmáquee as an adjective is used to describe such a person who shows excessive/restless longing for things. The one who is overly greedy is also referred to as Qálmáquee.
A person who can’t help barking or talking like a dog is also called Qálmáquee.. The word is used metaphorically for a person who behaves like Qalmaque – greedy and offensively gibberish. Example: Né áqmaquee bai, næ bár yátey bo ƌünƌuna!
There is a dilapidated ancient fort in Yasin, known as Qalmaq Khán or Qalmaq e Khan( The fort of Qalmaq) in Barhkolti. It must have some link with the Qalmaq traces.
Historically, people of Yasin, must have known somehow the Kalmyks (A.K.A Qalmaqs,Khalmaqs) , the descendants of Oyrats Mongols originating from West Mongolia (Jungaria).
