Turkmen Bagshies, Custodians of Turkmen Literature and Culture

The word «bagshy» (bak-shi) comes from the ancient Indian Sanscrit language which meant «clerk», but in the Middle Ages in the Turkmen language it acquired the meaning «the musician and singer», along with another Turkmen word «ozan» which meant « a story teller». So «ozan» and «bagsy» were the synonyms in the meaning of «a story teller and singer». They usually participated in different parties held in connection with wedding ceremonies, national holidays and during the celebration of different family events. In general Turkmens liked to listen to their performances of destans, folk novels and songs to the accompaniment of their two stringed musical instrument. The epics «Asly and Kerem», Sayatly and Hemra» «Gorkut ata» (The Book of my grandfather Gorkut») the heroic folk epic «Gorogly», «Asly and Kerem», Sayatly and Hemra», «Shasenem and Garyp» and others were the parts of Turkmen literature and culture.

Later he expressed his feelings about that period of life in his poem «Little Child»: I remember my childhood passed in sorrowDay and night I wanted bread to borrow.

The Turkmen Juniper

The nature of Turkmenistan amazes everybody with its flora and fauna. The trees form the green belt of the Turkmen land. One of the endemic trees decorating the mountains of Turkmenistan looking green in all the seasons is the Turkmen juniper. Thinly growing trees of juniper are seen at the 700 metre height above the sea level of the Kopetdag Mountains. There are also thick woods of juniper at the 1300-2100 metre height of the sea level in the mountains. The height of the juniper in the mountains is equal to 15-20 metres. Some species of juniper also grow in the Botanical Garden in Ashgabat. But the colour of junipers growing in the mountains is greener then here.

The Garden in Bamy

Bamy is one of the ancient villages in the Baharden district. If you go by car along the Ashgabat – Turkmenbashy automobile highway at the 170 km. distance you will see a garden on the right side of the road. Before planting trees here the specimens of the soil and water of this area were taken to Turkey and their laboratory analysis was made. According to that analysis young plants of fruit-trees were chosen. There is an eternal truth in the world. That is the natural peculiarities of the Earth according to its parallel belt. Turkmenistan is situated on the same parallel belt not only with neighbouring countries but with Israel, Turkey, Greece, Cyprus, Japan, with some territories of the USA which are situated at the far distance. It means that the trees, plants growing in those areas will grow in Turkmenistan too. Because there are several similarities in the climate of those territories.
