A few poems from Firdavsi Azam

Fire of love

From within my heart,

There is a burning heat,

That always Longs


And weeps


I run from this fire


I escape from it

But today

An angel came and said:

“Loose yourself in this love

Escape from your earthly from

And you will find who you are”

Village boy

I am a boy, grew up in the village,

A dry piece of bread suffices me,

Of the hardships of time,

Like a lion, I’m not afraid.

Countless number of smallpox,

Even dough, printed in my feet,

Since, I was raised from village soil,

I’m inclined towards the desert,

In the harvest, my life has passed,

I’m, whatsoever, pleased with it,

He who is not devoted to work,

Looks like nipped grape that is unripe.

The silent cries

Cloud, O cloud in the sky,

Why do you cry as the breeze?

Go to another roof and don’t pour your tears here,

You are far from the feelings of my heart,

The silent cries


Sadness of the beloved at my heart

Snatches every moment the patience and stability from me,

Though the unfaithful sweetie has gone without remembering,

Hope to meet that beautiful one;

I have been waiting for,


Is lost in us
whining from us

From our cold and dim heart

From the forgotten ways

Is escaping

Instead of it, now
to our eyes

What is “Zolal”
Dear friends and poets. I would like to write a few words about a new style of poetry which is called “Zolal”. Although, a lot of people, poets and writers have written too much about this poetry format in Persian,Russian, Tajik but I prefer to write it in English. I as a matter of fact translate the words of the founder of this style Mr Abolfazl Dada. It seems to me it would be better for everyone, especially English speaking countries, to get to know about this new style.

What is “Zolal”? , a few words…

Maybe majority have heard a lot about the term “Zolal”, and keen on exploring and describing the essence of this style and poetical format.

Zolal” is wide format poetry, in order to drag words in such a format, it requires accuracy, effort and requires much patience .If respected readers surf the Internet world and check the law of “Zolal”, they will see that writing poems in such a form is not easy and is not so simple. However, virtuous poets emerged in this sphere that is satisfied for any inconvenience that has been worn away and their impact on world literature is considerable.

The thing that makes it different from other contemporary poems, it is having a unique format and it is being regulated, and even reviewing its format from outer structure and order of the other poems are completely different. So, “Zolal” cannot be a series from different styles and this style is defined as a complete and independent. And it is also defined and its low is written before its birth.

“Zolal” as a defined format of poetry, on the second of January 2010 with principles of the details, along with twenty-three poems and with the example of the research findings was delivered via the Internet to the world of literature. Mr Azam Khujaste is the first poet and practical visitor of this style who welcomed it before anybody. Two days after the birth of Zolal, with a poem in this style he submitted a poem on my blog that showed his talent that can be practically demonstrated on this format. Mr. Khujaste is one of the famous and well-known poets of Tajikistan who is residing at the present time in Iran that we enjoy his words in the wide web. I proudly praise Mr. Khujaste as a talented poet in this field of poetry. His book “Clear well” is the first printed work in the form of Zolal and hopefully in a near future the number of such works will increase.

With the permission of respected readers I review the summary of useful content “Zolal”.

General definition of “Zolal”

“Zolal” is a poem that starts step by step equally from low level and split ends in the low point. This type of poem consists of 5 to 11 lines. According to the weight, the longest line of the middle row is called “mother line” and row around it is called “symmetric lines”. “Zolal” has two types: (Arooz and free) that there is special definition and principles for each of them.

This is the formula of Zolal from Mr. Azam Khujaste:

Don’t leave

Don’t go off from my home

Don’t set off from the world of my legend

Don’t corrupt this corner of my paradise

Oh my angel, stay with me don’t go from this shack

I still can fill your fragrance of presence

I’m like a butterfly around you,

Oh, my dearest, don’t leave me

In the poem “Zolal” the way of resets of the weights and downwards and upwards, look like conquering the peak demonstrated the triangular arithmetic space visualize and makes it appear the interesting world of imagination and meaning of creator.

“Zolal” is the best foundation for the formation of a new form of records that hold imagination and talents to the new look and feel of love and the mystical and rare images in this type of Transcendental poetry and can be reached to its peak in simple and clear language.

Descent and accent of weight in Zolal, deep feelings can have a vibration that often mirror movements in corner of the corners and rooted shortest word with the magic words, because the clearness of  Zolal, is visible

This type of poetry has its own language and rhythm according to specific musical tastes and taste of poet that is made and rhythmic motion in regular waves will accompany. Poem, is real clear when despite the distance and observe the rhythm and step-defined principles of its own, be written in coordinated rhythm. However, this technique requires a lot skill and patience of master, and it is the best form of expressing affection, love and emotions. “Zolal” requires mobility, as it is clear from its plan, and it also demands for the size. It demands for order, corner and professional talents and privacy. Zolal, requires from the poet such abilities like precision and elegance and skills in order to create it in the lowest volume, in order to put strongest words in the form of regular and more advanced principles of transparency as it emerged.

The advantage of  Zolal writing

The most important factor in this style is that it asks poet unlike their previous habits, use his arts and talents in to the newest and most advanced form of unprecedented and unique to the area emerged and brought in the form of letters and collects his sense in to this form.

However, due to the order and language technology and its own characteristics, it requires great concentration and imagination .I am sure that future generations entirely elaborate and will be interested in it, and work on writing clear, romantic and mystical art of exponential and they show their art on this style.

“Zolal”, says: I do not like playing with words, and filling with words, if you have an essence, go ahead.

Never let it makes anyone’s head feel the pain, just express quality, systematic and methodical! But artistically say!

In this style of poetry format all kinds of talent can take part, it might be the field of classical talent and white and free, (modern poetry) to

However, not everybody is able to write Zolal but it is an alert and move on to a new generation that not to waste their ancestor’s efforts and to take in to consideration what they have done for them.

Аъзам Хучаста-Azam Khujaste

Note: Usually in Zolal, simple language and pure words can be said and felt and transparent, honesty and mental, are expressed and transmitted fully in this form of poetry.

In other words, “Zolal” often says little, but it says the most important words.

Zolal says: Whatever I’ve learned anything is from the past and present. I respect all the lyrics and respect and even it is necessary and important for me to respect the future, but on the diversity and changes that have caused, committed and happy and not retail any time I take a taste. I would also like that other keep my respect as well.

Zolal types

In general, “Zolal” is divided into four types that include:

A – Zolal with prosodic rhyme

B – Zolal without rhyme prosodic

C – Free Zolal

D – Continuous Zolal

The general Law of Zolal is clear in these four types, but with this difference

General rule of Zolal

-1The first row and the last lines must have maximum five syllables at the maximum weight.

-2The number of syllables between two lines (the difference between the two steps of the adjacent line in the triangular Arooz weight, only two numbers and count syllables in a free triangle weights up to six numbers with a distance equal basis and climbing stairs had a sink. (Example: If the number of syllables, i.e. the second row the first row of the number of syllables, rhythm number two should be more third row from the second row, is two more. Similarly, it climbs two into two and a staircase to the mother row as fully symmetrical and equal distance will slowly decreases.

-3Musical rhythm from beginning to end should be fully preserved.

-4 Number of rows per Zolal, should not be less than five and not exceeding to 11

-5 The following rows should be written together

-6 Symmetrical rows, in terms of weight, length or number of syllables and according to the Arooz rhythm should be equal together.

(Note): The number of lines in all Zolal between prosodic has only two syllables.

Is “Zolal” poetry?

Logically “Zolal” is not poetry but one can writes a poem or lyrics in to this format and style. We have to see who writes and what does he writes. Although the ode is not poetry, but a poet can writes poetry in the format of an ode.

Well as a result Zolal is not poetry but you can write a Zolal poem.

Who created Zolal?

Now, “Zolal” is just a one year old and we already commenced debating about who is the founder of this poetical style. I think it is not so important to debate on this direction at the present time. We have to accept that Mr. Abolfazl Dada is the first founder of this style, and whatever the other say is just nonsense, because It was he who for the first time brought it to the world of Literature through internet. We have to let him to grow and we don’t have to be an obstacle in his way. This new style is not just for himself, but for entire Iran and the world. And we have to be proud that the founder and the creator of this new format is an Iranian poet not a foreigner. Although the number of Zolal poets are less, but we have not to lose our hope for its future development and improvements. It needs time to show its real face. It is just one year, and hopefully in future we will see how it develops and how the number of Zolal poets increases. Today Zolal is enlarging its circle in all around the world, in Tajikistan compositors and singers are trying to work on it. A group of tajik poets are learning this style.

The end…

Well, at the end, I hope that we come to our self and find out the reality of the literature’s significances, and importance and roles.

What I said is just been said many times, I have just repeated it. And I just said it for you in another language. Hopefully, you understand what I mean. Time is the best mirror and the best just.

May God bless us all!

A few Zolal from Mr Azam Khujaste:

New Day

My dream jumped out of bed

No one could become aware of wings of my sleep

When I remember Him unconsciously in the midnight,

I became aware of self

My ears heard the myths of dream

New Day has arrived



That your being,

Is life excuse

Come, I missed you a lot

Come and fill the hearts with love

And we give kisses

To each other lips

And you alive,


Give me wine

Give me oh cupbearer wine

Give me a chance again

I get tired of myself and come again

Give me power and speed

Come cupbearer set me free of this chain

Give me pure mauve wine

Give me wine

Don’t leave

Don’t go off from my home

Don’t set off from the world of my legend

Don’t corrupt this corner of my paradise

Oh my angel, stay with me don’t go from this shack

I still can feel your fragrance of presence

I’m like a butterfly around you,

Oh, my dearest, don’t leave me

Affection and stamp

Feel affection

In our heart

Can be seen and can be felt

With balmy glance of each other

Confirmed love agreement

And our kisses,

On this accord,

Remain as stamped forever

Kiss me

Don’t be reluctant again, kiss me

Give me hug like an innocent child

Wherever you are whether on the sky or under the earth

Come and kiss me

Get rid of pitfalls and get to me

Come and peacefully kiss me

Come and kiss me…

In a nighttime

There was a beloved with me

Our home like a school was-

Trial and scales of fever

That was a treasured night

Don’t say

Don’t utter from my love

Don’t speak from my passion

Never say that from passion you became my friend

Don’t even gossip to the nightingales and the cypress and tulip of the garden and lawn

Here the word “love” makes upheavals

Don’t say from the breakdown

Oh, my darling, don’t say


Had reached

In order to do mischief

To apart me easily

From the direct path

Oh God, for the sake of godliness

Irritate him again this time

So in order Satan

Is Cursed


Once night arrived

Two lips touched each other

The stars and galaxies were the eyewitness of this bliss

A boundless glory came to the unlimited land

Parting and solitude pulled away from the time

And the party of festivity came to my home

The ecstasy has come


Throw out grief, and come

Spring approaches, you come as well

Come next spring, we live in bliss

Come to the garden, to this shrine

Come up my darling Come up!

Way out

When I saw you,

You did not look at me

And I got sad from my awful fate

That we couldn’t reach to each other

I ask God to protect me from being alone


Childhood was a legend

Playing, was inside the house

Brother and sister all next to one another far from the pain and sorrow

Sympathizer and sympathetic mother day and night was like butterflies around us

We were all in perfect satiety having fun in thanks to Father

We were like chickens and each of his trees of garden was like nest

Our hair was brushing every morning and evening

Mother’s hands were as soft as the breeze

It was a treasured reminiscence

I came

I came back

I came back with a torn heart

The years of parting and separation injured my heart

And I came back because found out that you resort to connect,

May not be distances and boundaries between us any more

I came back with a broken heart

Firdavsi Azam


Interview with David an American living in Khujand, Tajikistan and working as an English Language Fellow. He teaches English at Khujand State University. And here I would like to present the interview that was conducted with him.

First of all, Mr. David I would like to welcome you to Tajikistan.

Tank you Firdavs

What is the aim of English Language Fellow program?

The aim of this program is to put qualified American English teachers into countries and institutions that want them. My job is to teach English here in Khujand. I teach classes at the foreign languages faculty of Khujand state University, and I also have free classes at the American Corner. I also want to help Tajiks better understand about the U.S., and when I return to the U.S.I will teach Americans all about Tajikistan’s history, culture and people.

Did you choose to come to Tajikistan?

Yes, I choose to come here. I did not know very much about Tajikistan before I came here so I wanted to learn more about this country and this part of the world. I used to live in the Republic of Georgia from 2002-2004 so I know what former Soviet Union countries are like. I’m glad I have had the opportunity to come here because most Americans know very little about this country.

What do you do in the U.S.?

In the U.S. I’m a high school English as a Second Language (ESL) teacher. Last year I taught students from 13 different countries. I teach all four levels of ESL from beginning to advance. My goal is to get the students as quickly as possible out in to the regular English classes. I enjoy my job, but it is a lot of work. I plan to return to this same job in September.

What about the teacher’s salary in the U.S.?

Teachers in the U.S. generally work very hard and get paid a low to medium range salary. The amount of money a teacher makes depends on where they live and how many years they have been teaching. For example, teachers in New York City will make more money than those living in Montana because the cost of living higher in New York City than in Montana. I have traveled all over the world and it seems as if teachers are never paid fairly. That’s why I believe in the saying: “Teachers are not made they are born”.

What is your opinion of our teachers here in Tajikistan?

I’ve worked with a lot of hardworking teachers here. Many of them are eager to learn new methods and ideas despite the fact that their salary is low and the conditions are sometimes poor .The teachers here want to make their lessons better and that’s why I’m here. I have conducted teacher training workshops for local teachers. My workshops have introduced new and better teaching methods to the teachers. I frequently have teachers attending my lessons because they want to see me teach so that they can learn how I teach. I believe that for this country to develop it needs good, qualified young teachers to shape the minds of the next generations.

How the students are are different from the students in the U.S.?

I believe that young people are all basically the same throughout the world. So students here have many more similarities with American students than differences. However, I have noticed here that students are more afraid to try new ideas. American students are always trying new ideas and searching for what is best way. American students are taught from a young age to ask a lot of questions and to think critically for themselves. Tajik students though are generally very polite and hardworking. I have many students here who have very strong desire to learn English. It’s difficult for them to learn English here because they don’t have enough speaking practice. Some days I feel overwhelmed here because so many students want to talk to me and practice their English.

How is a U.S. university different than a Tajik university?

In the U.S. students can graduate after four years, but here in Tajikistan students have to study for five years before they can graduate. Another difference is students here are given homework almost every night, but in the U.S. students only have two or three big projects or tests to do in semester or quarter. Also in the U.S. attendance is not always taken. Students don’t have to come to class if they don’t want to but they still have to pass all tests and do all the assignments. One similarity though is that both U.S and Tajik university students have to buy their own book.

Mr. David, what do you want Tajiks to know about Americans?

I want Tajiks to know that all Americans are different. Most Americans are not like what you see on TV or in the movies. Americans are usually hardworking, caring people who want to make the world a better place. I think Tajiks are the same as Americans in these ways.

Mr. David, thank you for sharing your opinion on this issue, wish you all the best.

You’re welcome, the same to you.

The problem of youth in Tajikistan

Youth are as a matter of fact considered as a most powerful, reliever, promoter of affairs and resolver of difficulties in society of all countries of entire world. And their contribution in all area of public life is considerable. Perhaps it is not true to consider them
In this article I would like to draw your attention about youth of Tajikistan, Central Asia. It is necessary to stress that 70 % of Tajikistan’s population is covered by youth, which of course possess their own problems and issues. Each of them has their own point of view about their life and future. But unfortunately concern for well-educating the people in particular the youth is not in the center of Government’s attention. Government needs to focus on their problems and has to understand that only through this young generation we possibly can reach to the bright and foreseeable future. But, however, it is mostly on the contrary. They just do not care what’s going on with them. Meanwhile special attention must be paid to the role of youth in society. Today the young people of other countries (Europe, America) are more broad-minded, well-educated, capable and vigorous. They are all set for action and look for a chance to show their worth in all areas of public life. And their authorities almost do every thing to support and encourage them, whereas in Tajikistan this process is not felt and the number of such youth is very less and countable.

The youth in Tajikistan have two sides. I mean on one side in comparison with Soviet times the youth have a vast, a great deal of opportunities to develop themselves. For instance if in seventy’s or eighty’s there were no job places or education opportunities or other opportunities, today thanks to Independence and thanks to the measurements are being undertaken by government, youth have all kinds of chances to get an education, relaxation, entertainment in short to be active in developing the civil society. And now on other side, unfortunately not all youth understand and do not appreciate sufficiently and do not use these advantages.
Alijon Boimatov an expert on issues dealing with youth problems in the case of youth and education claimed:” Since the young people are the future of any country, good education is the good issue of any developed and developing country. I would like to advise the young people to get a good education. Recently, many good measurements have been undertaken by the government and other international organization. If ten years ago the text books and their building were not in appropriate, but today most of the school building and facilities are better than those years. I want to say that education facilities are going to be better. Of course there are problems, but they do not upon the students, the young people should not suffer or are not expected to suffer on this aspect, it’s government’s responsibilities.”
Yes, education is like a shield that protects us from bad and evil forces. But in this transition period gaining a good education is not an easy thing. Certainly good education costs money and if she/he invests some money her/ his money will reinforce. Because good education will give him a chance to get good jobs and always to be a good employed and to earn more money, therefore if a student spends sufficiently some money let him not regretted.
They say youth is back bone to the nation, and it’s true, they can change the future of society with their well-being and courageous behaviors. But as it is obvious they are not as courageous as they should be, they are neither active nor courageous and brave.
Thereby empowering and fortifying their participation and engagement in all spheres of states is urgent and it should be admitted that their matters are extremely burning hot issues and it does not need to be avoided, rejected and or even neglected. Nowadays in all civilized countries the role of this social force (young generation) is highly regarded and their position in society is appreciated and valued by the competent authorities.
Unfortunately in Tajikistan in comparison with other CIS countries this process of involvement can not be widely brought up for discussion. I’m just perplexed why they are so reluctant concerning these matters.
I think it is Government’s responsibilities to get control of this problems; they have to motivate them with special training programmed and teach them responsibility and goal-setting and improve their behaviors in order to become more active, more vigorous and more productive. But it surely does take some time. Sometimes we are not right o blame Government but also at the same time we can not blame the youth too. That is demand of society. But society should first pay a great attention to their problems. For many reason to shirk the responsibly is to harm for it self. it is clear that no revolution can be victorious, no future can be glorious and not tomorrow can be obvious without the effective education, organization, and mobilizations into political action. Their role in social, economical, development and political issues is huge. And they should be able to participate actively in implementing projects dedicated to improving living condition, developing the sense of responsibility and solving-problems, issues. Shahnoza Mamadova a fifth year student of Faculty of Foreign Languages (FFL), Khujand State University is not satisfied with youth’s activities and she complained:
“There are a lot of problems concerning youth, the majority of them are not active, and they are not interested in political issues and unaware of their rights and freedoms. The school, children of today only care and think about and for their own benefit. They do not have any plan or programs for the future. And our government always claims that they are doing that and this, but I can’t see any result or improvements”
I’m afraid these carelessness, reluctances and impartiality one day are going to bring bad and dangerous consequences for the society of Tajikistan. Well, Government above all must take it seriously and do something, or else it will certainly find itself in trouble.
With respect to this matter an expert on political issues Nabiyulloh Sunnati said:
“Actually refusing and not to believe to the youth’s power and labor force is not to the profit and benefit of society. Today in Majlisi Namoyandagon (House of Government of Tajikistan) they are old deputies and their minds are full of old -fashioned ideas and false plans and schedules. Well in this case we are unable to see any prosperity and improvements. These legislators body adopt laws and orders that can not meet the young’ demand. I think it would be good for youth to have position and places in Majlisi Oli” (Parliament of Tajikistan) and other state departments
.The old deputies must be exchanged and replaced.”

As a matter of fact young people have to have position in Parliament. In developed countries youth certainly do have position, but those old -fashioned are afraid that by the time when youth take their place and tasks, they surely make differences and change the course of society with their modern ideas and make them lose their projects. Meanwhile, in neighbor countries in Central Asia young people are very active and willingly attend in political social movements, while in Tajikistan it is not the same. There is, but less care and attention from Government and despite the fact every year more than one million people leave their family and native homeland for a piece of bred for CIS countries and there are bunch of qualified people among them. It is really frustrating.
They contribute all their labor force and power and knowledge to alien countries and I think it should alert the authorities of country to take an action. It seems nobody is there to see and observe it. They actually are witness, but never show any effort for prevention. This immigration process draws their attention from study and family and homeland. It keeps them away from study.
We know that 70 % of people live in rural areas. It includes: Asht, Ganchi, Istaravshan, Kanibadam,Mastchoh, Zafarabad and many others. There are not enough enterprises, plants or factories to offer jobs for young people. Because of this lacking many young people are unemployed. They just don’t know how to earn money; therefore one of the representatives of the family has gone to Russia 10 years ago and invites one another. And the numbers of immigrants are increasing because there is a sort of association in one place. As Alijon said: “I know a place in Moscow, there is a market where about 50 people are working and living in one village. They are hiring there officially and do have their registration, but do not have enough money to get a good flat.”
The living condition is very bad and poor, but they don’t have any choice, they are forced to do that, because they need to come back to their villages and family in order to build a house, to do some wedding for their sons and daughters. Generally in order to support a family some body should work, otherwise there is no any source of earning money in villages.
Nabiyulloh Sunnati complained: “Sadly, nowadays our future generation leaving country for the sake of a small pittance from seeking employment abroad and our highly qualified personnel are in the interest of their employers. I think if Tajikistan brings all them together, unite them, and provide them with job and opportunities of having a good place of work, surely and without any hesitation expect a bright and prosperous future of our country. But I doubt if Government ever do that.”
Today every body is going to Russia, no matter how old he is, no matter how bad the situation seems like. Both students and teachers.
But Shahnoza Mamadova thinks this way: ”To Russia goes a person who does not have a Diploma or higher education and knowledge.” But, nevertheless young people are trying being an active one. Shoira Sharipova a young teacher of FFL said: “I think our youth are better and active than previous times. But they have countless problems and I think it is their responsibility to struggle against their own problems. Because there is no one to care about them. For example I’m trying to get myself involved in all sorts of negotiation, association, seminars and conferences in order to obtain a good knowledge, a better experience, skill and information on specific spheres of my life and the occurrence of the world. And in a near future I’m planning to leave Tajikistan for Scotland to participate in a youth assembly.”
One of the other problems is just the unemployment percent. Unfortunately the officials say there are a lot of job places. But if a student graduates or gets a higher education for instance in law, economics and computer technology or other spheres, there are not any good job places, or if yes, the salary is too poor. And he certainly needs to leave country, that’s why this is problem for young people. And of course this is the issue of Government.
Hopefully in nearest future job places will be more and more and young people will not need to migrate to other countries in search of jobs. Actually it is possible to have or find a good job here in Tajikistan for 200-300 somoni, but the wages are not sufficient to support one family consisting 5-6 children.
And this migration process does have good advantages as well. If one of them is to bring more money to Tajikistan, the other is to provide a family with first needs and the provisions and another is able to set up a wedding ceremony. So Russian money is circulating and coming back to our country that people are able to lead their life further.
Another problem which so sternly confront our society is the lower level of young people’s knowledge of legality and civic. It’s painful that good deals of young people are not well aware of their own rights, obligations and freedom that are adopted by the State Constitution. And they even though do not make any effort to get to know them. They are just a bit lazy. According to the constitution of state “Citizens have the right to associate, the citizen has the right to participate in the creation of political parties, including parties of democratic, religious and atheistic character, trade union and other public association.”
Concerning this matter Alii Fariduni an expert on this case pointed out as following: “Legislative body of Republic of Tajikistan provides people with laws and orders, but not knowing them is not state’s fault, and we are not entitled to shift this burden on Government and blame it. If teenagers and youth do not their rights it is their mistakes not knowing them. It is obvious that they don’t’ know “Law about information”, “Law about culture”, “Law about Mass media”. I think if we know these laws there are not going to be any problems.
We have to take into consideration that illiteracy is the death of nation and prevention the nation from this phenomena is depends on every body’s will and initiative. It is common knowledge that illness should be prevented rather than cured. And we all commonly have to struggle against it and I think to promote the interest of young people, encouraging and supporting them is one of the important factors that all appropriate organs of the state must think over it and share their contributions. And youth’s voice should be heard by politicians and sociologist and the intelligentsia.
Generally impartiality and carelessness towards all these above –mentioned problems that are really threatening our society brings nothing but illiteracy and social revolution. In order to prevent and stop this chaos and revolution from occurring, above all, the entire competent authorities and appropriate organs of Tajikistan should be requested to provide the young generation with necessary opportunities and facilities of gaining political, economical and social knowledge and wisdom of modern age. And all the organs of Tajikistan must be on the youth’s side because being on their side is giving them courage, love, hope, and support, effort and countless advantages. And they have to educate them, in all sorts of ways, provide them with all basic needs and better condition for study, and I’m sure if we do this , it will certainly affects their status and position in society and it makes them to become optimists. And again it is good idea for them to get involved into political and social movements in order to get a better knowledge of the life Interests of people, and a better understanding of the points of views of different parties on the solution of major international problems.
We should do some thing and I guess it is right time to get up from our long deep sleep.

  1. Today due to economical situation of Tajikistan it has been hard to concentrate on youth’s problems, but I know that is is harmful for Tajikistan’s authority to not focus on their issues.

    • Dear Karomat!
      Certainly you’re right concerning this problems of youth in Tajikistan.
      Today we know that Tajikistan is in transition period and it takes some times to concentrate on the issues that are threatining it.
      But , nevertheless, youth today have a lot of chances and opportunities to have a good education and other facilities.They are becoming aware that nobody is going to care for them , but themselves.

      • Dear friend,
        what kind of chances and opportunities do tajik youth have for education and other facilities if their parents are not rich enough? what is the source of income ? what is the average salary of the workers? please be more realistic by posing comments.
