The great legacy of the Grameen Institute Hijri Bay is present

Kızılçullu and Hasanoğlan Village Institute of Art I meet again every April 17 with my father Hicri Bey. His voice comes from eternity. It’s a bit sad for me, the memories are scattering from the pages of the yellow notebook …

In the eyes of my friends, I always said, “How lucky I was to be a kid and I should have appreciated it.”

Because I had a very good father.

At a time when my self-defeating behavior and “unhealthy” mischief continued as adults, I couldn’t reconcile these assessments of my friends with my understanding of my father’s discipline, which can be considered harsh.

I will never forget, in the 5th grade of primary school, my friends’ uncle, my father, taught me the mandolin and the violin.

The children started playing a few songs and folk songs a month later. However, I still had to “keep tackling”!

I was upset, Fa… left… la.

I was close to my mother:

“You see, he taught them, as for me, tack …”

I almost dropped the mandolin, but according to my mom, it should have worked, I shouldn’t have let it go.

I kept going for her …

A year later, my mother said, “You were very angry, but look, you play well.”

The benefits of infrastructure and tedious technical work were realized. It was my father’s policy to strengthen the foundation of every business.

Another lesson that stuck in my mind was from my high school days.

Summer vacation was a time of work for me, not a time to play, rest or relax.

During the first week of returning from boarding school, books from Varlık Publications were placed in front of me in the home library.

Each of the selected world classics will be read within a week, a ten page summary will be created and presented to my father.

What a holiday!

Honestly, I read, summarized, and considered “what is needed” voluntarily, not at home, but at home.

Reading the beginning, middle and end of the book and managing the situation did not happen to me for a while.

But will the father ever eat ashes?

My compulsory reading became a volunteer after a while. It was like the other world… I began to see myself as the protagonist of each book.

In this sense, after two similar summer vacations, when I went to the teachers’ school in Gumushan, the teacher of literature asked in one of the first lessons:

“Have you read any classics? …”

I looked up and saw a few hands raised in the classroom, counting a few books.

“I’ve read them all,” I told my majest.

The teacher listened.

“Really?” He asked.

I started sorting …

However, I also took a test on the veracity of my words.

The man in our letter did not believe me according to what he later said, he said “correct” when he passed the test, but was surprised; Because among those I counted was something he hadn’t read.

Then, with the participation of a few friends, our lesson turned into a literary conversation. Literary days in the classroom.

Over the years, summer bricks began to pile on top of each other …

The books I read “forcibly” at a young age must have had a profound effect on my current career, or rather, my father’s.

On the contrary, there are countless examples in my life.

Hikari Bay reflects on what his children learned from Kizilkullu and Hasanogan. Like a school built on their own, they started with a solid foundation.

Then one by one he took out the bricks and the building.


I think the words he wrote on the Republican agenda the day before the surgery, which he lost his life in, are enough to explain the philosophy of rural organization:

“I have left nothing for my family members in the field of movable or real estate. But the greatest legacy I have left for them is their acceptance of the fundamental principles of the secular republic, the principles of perfectionism as a philosophy of life.”

These words are the greatest legacy of me as well as my brothers.

Thus, our maya was established with rural institutions. So is our children’s yeast …

In our national liberation war, the global aggressors who were expelled from our country closed down the rural institutions.

They activated their local allies to prevent the enlightenment of the Republic.

This is best understood from what we’ve shot today, with a brief history of 14 years.

If the rural institutions that have trained 17,000 teachers, 8,000 trainers and about 2,500 health workers are kept alive, we will not have a black cloud over us and our country will be brighter …
