Today, 23rd April Children’s Festival is a children’s festival that Mustafa Kemal Atatürk, the founder of the Turkish Republic, bestowed to Turkish children and that has been celebrated among countries since 1979. The first celebration of it was held on April 23rd, 1920, when the Turkish Grand National Assembly (TBMM) was founded. It is organized so as to improve the feelings of fraternity, love and friendship among children and also to contribute to a world, where they will live in peace.

The greatest dream of Atatürk, who saved his country from occupations, realized revolutions in almost every field and thanks to this changed the point of view of his nation, was modernization, namely a country that has become industrialized, has a strong middle class and where modern people are dominant. He considered this important as democracy functions well in all modern countries that have a strong economy. Atatürk knew that industry was weak in the Republic he founded and therefore, he tried to achieve modernization through the revolution of education and thus entrusted Turkey to the children and young people. However, he knew that modernization could not be immediately achieved. So, he envisaged that his ideal could be achieved by children educated at schools depending on positive sciences. He believed in his people and he was a man who lived what he believed. This is the main philosophy of 23rdApril. As it can be seen now, educated young people who have improved themselves have made significant contributions to the modern Turkey. Turkey of today has developed in years and joined the group of modern countries.

Salim baba,
Güzel bir bilgi notuyla sunmuşsun. Eline sağlık. 29 yıl önce 23 nisan törenlerine katılan Güney Afrika'lı minik bir çocuğun bu yıl Kültür Bakanı olarak ülkemize gelmesi çok manidar. Dünya barışına bu kadar hizmet eden başka bir organizasyon var mı acaba?
Bush'a itaf olunur...

Merhaba Salim. Lovely bright colours and the reds captured well. Nicely composed and fine detail. I saw an article in the paper here the other day (with photo) of some of your members of government having a bit of a fight. TFS,
