If only the world was enlightened by our esteemed scholars

like Mr.Kurban Veli,Dolkun Kamberi and Kahar Barat

to name just a few valuable Uygur souls;

of how we were the most vital instrument

in passing Buddhism and translating all scriptures
into Central Asian languages of the time

and how this religion spread to eastern asia

as far as Japan

and how revered the Kingdom of Khotan was

and still is to the Tibetans

and other neighbouring Buddhist nations

and how obliged the world of Buddhism is

for Buddhist Uygur intellectual contribution


...........


TODAY WE WOULD NOT LACK THE ACKNOWLEDGEMENT

THAT WE DESERVE SINCE THE FOUNDATION OF THIS FAITH

AND GLOBAL NATIONS WOULD HAVE BEEN MORE AWARE OF

UYGUR EXISTENCE ON ALL LEVELS OF GLOBAL CIVILIZATION


AND WE WOULD NOT BE ASKING QUESTIONS
ON THIS FORUM
AS TO WHAT WENT WRONG
WHY WE ARE BEHIND TIBETANS


WE COULD HAVE DONE MANY THINGS
TO PROMOTE UYGUR CULTURE
AND THE CLOSELY RELATED (CAUSE)


JUST TELL US OUR ELDERS !

WHAT YOU DID WITH ALL THE MONEY

THAT WAS COLLECTED IN THE LAST 50 YEARS

SHOW US HOW WISELY YOU SPENT

AND THE LASTING FEATS

YOU HAVE ACCOMPLISHED


WHO IS THERE
TO ANSWER ?

ANYBODY FEEL RESPONSIBLE ?

HISTORY HAS UNFORTUNATELY
RECORDED EVERY MOVE MADE
EVERYTHING SAID AND DONE

PLEASE LET US KNOW

WHAT IS GOING ON?


cordially,

an angry Uygur citizen
who is bored with trivial questions posted on this forum

because even this forum is another place
where part of Uygru history is written and recorded

FOR YOUR INFORMATION

Peace, my brother. When things do not go your way, it do not go your way no matter whether your are happy or angry. All the things are easier said than done. At the end the day, we are all responsible for our personal lives first and then do whatever we can and willing to do to help our people. We have nobody to blame. Our elders are as guilty or innocent as we are. When history are not at their side, they could do very little. People grew up before 80's did not even have middle schools, in some case primary schools, available for them. I find it hard to blame them. People of our generation, age 35-45, are the first generation of Uyghurs who have had quisi-normal education system and opportunity available for them. In essence, our generation is the backbone of our people. Rather than blaming others came before us, we should focus on how far we can carry ourselves and our duties to our people.
Evey body or people have their good days and bad days. We are experiencing our worst days. Blaming each other does not make it easier.

the path of the sensible and cultivated

new breed of intellectual uygurs

should be open

who are we to blame

we are concerned with the future

and we only need licensed people to take the matter in their hands.

FOR EXAMPLE:

THE LOGO ISSUE !

IT IS NOT DONE PROFESSIONALLY

A LOGO FOR ANY REASON IS A SERIOUS SUBJECT
WHICH CANNOT BE LEFT UNTO UNPROFESSIONAL HANDS

IF THEY NEED SOMETHING TO LAST 100S OF YEARS
THEN THEY SHOULD NOT TREAT IT
AS A KINDERGARTEN SKETCH TOY


THERE ARE CAPABLE PEOPLE WHO DO THIS KIND OF THINGS
WHO ARE CALLED GRAPHIC ARTISTS
AND ARE TRAINED FOR THESE KIND OF PURPOSES

BUT EVERYTHING HAS ITS PRICE

AND VALUE

IF THEY WANT 50 CENTS WORTH
THEY GET WHAT THEY DESERVE FOR HALF A BUCK


IF THEY WANT MORE VALUABLE IMPACT
THEN THEY SHOULD THINK BIG
AND NOT BE STINGY
ABOUT A VERY IMPORTANT ISSUE

SUCH AS A LOGO
DEFINING A MUTUAL CAUSE
CONCERNING MILLIONS


THIS IS THE 21ST CENTURY

EVERYTHING IS POSSIBLE

WITH THE RIGHT GUIDANCE AND INVESTMENT


THE LEAST THAT CAN BE DONE IS
STARTING AN INTERNATIONAL COMPETITION
IN ACADEMIC CIRCLES

AND PUTTING A TEMPTING PRIZE OF
10 OR 20.000 $

THEN YOU SEE LOGOS

FLYING FROM ALL OVER THE PLACE


BUT THEY CANNOT CHEAT THE PARTICIPANTS

SAYING NOBODY WON

AND NEVERTHELESS USING ONE OF THE APPLICATIONS


BECAUSE THERE ARE COPYRIGHTS ETC ETC.



basically what we are trying to do
is constructive criticism
rather than destructive blaming approach

pointing out clues

and the missing links


ethically speaking

our anger is not at anybody in particular

but at the time and means
which are being unwisely spent
