Today, the republican newspaper “Egemen Qazaqstan” published an article by Darkhan Kydyrali, President of the International Turkic Academy, entitled “Қанағат, рахым ойлап қой…”.
In the article dedicated to the poet’s anniversary, the head of the Academy makes deep research and calls us for studying Abay’s heritage.
The author compares philosophical thoughts in Abay’s works with thoughts and ideas in “Kutadgu Bilig” of great scholar of the Turkic world Yusuf Balasaguni and “Mukaddima” of the Oriental thinker Ibn Khaldun.
It’s worth noting that this year, on the instruction of the President, the 175th anniversary of the great poet Abay is widely celebrated. In this regard, the International Turkic Academy has declared this year as the Year of Abay for the whole Turkic world and plans to translate his works into several related languages. A number of brotherly countries will also hold large-scale events.
