Huzun means sorrow in Turkish. The term is famously explained by Nobel laureate Orhan Pamuk in his award-winning book Istanbul. The author once depicted Istanbul as the city wrapped by the sadness, huzun, from the collapse of Ottoman Empire. Inability to reach its full potential is the connotation of Huzun.
I spent 20 days during my third journey to Istanbul to discover the magic of huzun. While I do find some aspects of the feeling, I see a different new world, 60 years after Orhan Pamuk's birth.

Thank Aylin for saying it is not Huzun. It should be Nese (: Huzun was the past and Nese (joy) is the present!
