Karaman's Yunus Emre Exam
Like people, cities have luck and luck. It is located at the beginning of Turkey's lucky Karaman province. It is so lucky that this city often does not even realize that its luck has come to its door. I would like to explain the issues that Karaman is lucky to be one by one in another article. Even being a province is a chance in itself.
UNESCO declared 1991 the year of Yunus Emre due to the 700th anniversary of his birth. Eskişehir became the celebration center of the year of Yunus Emre. Thanks to the events, the love of Yunus Emre rose again in the hearts. The lamp that Yunus burned in the hearts became the sun and enlightened humanity. Yunus Emre's poems were read, composed, new books were written about him, and symposiums were held.
Eskişehir, where the Porsuk Stream flows mud, the air pollution is at the highest stage, its streets and streets are poured out of neglect, evaluated the year 1991 worthy of Yunus Emre.
I witnessed some of the activities held that year. Eskişehir was highly rewarded for his respect to Yunus Emre. Yunus Emre brought abundance to Eskişehir. I can say that Yunus Emre has the biggest share in Odunpazarı becoming a center of attraction today.
It has been 30 years. UNESCO has once again allowed the Yunus Emre Year to be organized. This is the first time. Turkey for the second time for a name, let the celebration came from UNESCO for the construction, financial resources have been transferred.
Luck knocked on the door once again for Karaman. In 1991, another opportunity was given to Karaman, who could not claim Yunus Emre, regardless of whether it was due to anguish or inadequacy.
I would like to remind you; Karaman was far from those events as if it had nothing to do with Yunus Emre. He had assumed an identity that was afraid of "racing with Eskişehir" .
Let's agree on a matter first. 2021 Yunus Emre Year. Eskişehir is the main center of the events. Now we raid Eskişehir and Give us the year of Yunus Emre. Are we going to fight by saying "It is our right" ?
Or "We are the grandchildren of Yunus Emre. Karaman is Yunus Emre, it wouldn't be Karaman without Yunus Emre. Look what we will do for our grandfather Yunus ” are we going to join hands by saying?
Now, news from the last week of November 2020. I made some abbreviations.
"A preparatory meeting was held in Eskişehir Governorship Yunus Emre Hall as part of the 2021 UNESCO Year of Yunus Emre Memorial and Celebration.
