Well, today it is like 135 years since Atatürk's birth, the most worshiped man of Turkey.
I have already done a post about him here, so I wouldn't be repeating myself. However, I wanted to share with you a video which is kinda related to him since among else, Atatürk' introduced a new alphabet for the written Turkish language based on a modified Latin alphabet.
The new Turkish alphabet would serve as a replacement for the old Arabic script and as a solution to the literacy problem in Turkey. On 1 November 1928 he introduced the new Turkish alphabet and abolished the use of Arabic script. At the time, literate citizens of the country comprised as little as 10% of the population.
After the introduction of the new alphabet, it is said that the literacy has reached 70%!
Here is the video I had mentioned, referring to the Turkish language.
the stamp was issued in 2009 and is a joint issue between Turkey and Bosnia and Herzegovina.
Ok, that would be all for today. Ok, I admit I'm in a bit of a hurry, meeting some friends in a while.
Anyways, hope you liked today's choice :)
