• Istanbul: Huzun

    193 views 1 month ago
    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.
    Painter Auni Ahkmehmetoglu can be found on No. 25 Cukurcuma Caddesi, Istanbul-Beyoglu.
    A Hidden Bee can be found on Tomtom Mahallesi Kumbaraci Yokusu 30/B, Beyoglu, Istanbul.

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