Everybody is born and dies in a same way, but everybody has a different lifestyle. My origin is not from monkey as Charles Darwin said. I was born in 1936 in Baku as a human. People have made both profit and harm out of me and vice verse.
You can’t imagine what I have seen through my life. I lived during the World War 2 that was the era of Stalin and Hitler. I met Picasso, American painter Refrejiye and also 154 year- old Şirali father who lives in Lerik.
As we live, life both beats and loves us. But rather we create troubles, rarely little happiness by ourselves.
Why is the human happy or unhappy generally? I found green, broken bottle piece in the street when I was a child. By looking at the world through this bottle piece I saw it in a happy colour. But when my family saw that bottle piece accidentally, they threw it out. At that time I become sad and broken. Then, where is the happiness? Finding it in your own self is very difficult and finding it in another place is impossible. People say that: Clever people can see the things, which silly people can’t see by looking for in the world, in their home.
Famous Italian painter Vosneniani hadn’t gone out of the city he lived, moreover he hadn’t been to Rome, the capital city of Italy. But the world knew his paintings.
One day when Socrates was lecturing about philosophy apple vehicle was fallen over near him. The people listening to him ran after the apples. A few people continued to listen to him. In the meantime some people were trying to fill their pockets with apple and some of them were trying to fill their head with knowledge. People are different. Fortunately, I loved painting picture. This love is my eternal happiness. It is very difficult to break off from the captivity of art but being a captive like this is a big happiness.
