OCA: Tell us about yourself and your activity / work ?
ZK: My name Zulkhumar. I was born on July 30, 1972 in the Kanimekh district of the Navoi region of the Republic of Uzbekistan. I have spent twenty one years working as a teacher. Since 2015, I have been engaged in creativity: I write poems, stories and essays. In terms of higher education, I graduated from Samarkand State University.
My favorite pastime is reading books. My love of books has been passed on from my parents. They were book lovers. We had a lot of books in the house. My parents have a phenomenal memory. My father was a teacher, he sometimes composed poetry. My mother was a saleswoman. She loved literature, and knew various folk songs by heart. My parents paid great attention to raising their children. There were six of us.
I was the fifth child in the family. As a child, I made friends with fairy-tale characters who are still with me to this very day, that is, I, like my parents, live in the world of books. They have long been separated from me but I still feel their love. And I know that this love is infinite. It is they who inspire me, help everywhere and in everything. Thanks to my parents and books, I found my way in life, I found myself and my happiness…
Main theme of my work is self-knowledge. In order to know myself, at the age of 40, I started traveling with my family in the sacred places of Uzbekistan. I have visited more than 70 locations. Traveling has helped me. In the 43rd year of my life, my sixth sense opened. I worked both day and night, incessantly, I could not stop. It was incredible. And I was surprised to myself, but over time I realized what I really am.
The real Zulkhumar was able to write 1000 lines of poems in a single day, or 30-40 sheets of essays, and filled out a general notebook in a week. For 9 months, I turned out about 30 thousand lines of poems. And the world opened the way to the truth for me. I realized that all truth is in man himself. It turns out that everything is simple and clear …
… Studying the life and work of great ancestors, I found the answer to all questions, i.e. the key to all the doors. Using it, you can solve absolutely all the problems of mankind, except death. And death means that our time is up, that it is time to return back to our home. In the meantime, we are alive, while visiting the planet “Earth”, we must use that time for the benefit of mankind, leaving their bright mark in this white light.
OCA: What is “Eurasianism” for you?
“Eurasianism” is a mutual understanding, friendly cooperation between the West and the East in a single Earth Under the same Sky.
OCA: What are your favourite artists?
ZK: In childhood, I loved to listen and read fairy tales.
In my school years I read E.Vokhidova, A.Oripova, U. Khoshimova, H.Tukhtabaeva.
My favorite works at the university were the works of A. Pushkin, A. Chekhov, V. Hugo, Exupery, Shakespeare, Charlotte Bronte. At the moment I am reading the philosophy of ancient times (Aristotle, Socrates, Confucius, etc.) Sufi literature (Rumiy, Gazzoliy and others) as well modern literature.
I am interested in the philosophy of Hegel and Kant. In a word, I’m a book lover. Since childhood, my favorite poet has been Alisher Navoi. I admired him and do to this day. The works of A. Navoi are treasures not only of the East, but of everything of the world. But so far, mankind does not know the price of this wealth.
My whole life is connected with the name of this poet: I was born in the Navoi region, studied at school at the A. Navoi University. I currently live in the Navoi mahalla. And in a dream I see a great poet. Three years ago A. Navoi presented me with his pen, the book “Hamsa” (“Five”) and blessed me to call upon all mankind for kindness, to help people find the meaning of life. From this day on, my pseudonym is Kenzha Navoi. (Harbinger of Navoi).
OCA: Have you taken part in the events of the Eurasian Creative Guild (London)?
ZK: Yes, I did. For the first time in Astana (Kazakhstan) and 5 times in Tashkent.
OCA: What does the Eurasian Creative Guild mean to you, and how did it affect your creativity / activity?
ZK: For me, the Eurasian Creative Guild is a fabulous planet where dreams come true. Heroes do not survive, do not exist, but live and create. It is easy to communicate with such people without even knowing their language. We spiritually understand each other. Each participation in Guild events inspires me even more.
Many thanks to the Guilds for understanding, for their interest in my work. I have been looking for this planet for a long time, I think the Guild was also looking for me. And one fine day we found each other thanks to the Almighty. No wonder they say who seeks will always find.
OCA: Do you have any personal project that you would like to talk about?
ZK: Yes, I have a personal project. But it is very widespread. If this project is realized, then many people will know themselves and begin to live humanly. When people begin to live, then they will begin to think and think. When people think and think, then they will begin to understand and listen to each other. And when there will be mutual understanding between people, then families will not break up, children will not become orphans, and older people will not get into the nursing home. Then humanity will find its happiness. I believe and hope so.
OCA: What projects have you participated in and in which do you plan to participate?
ZK: I did not participate in any projects. In the future I want to participate in various interesting projects that benefit humanity.
OCA: What would you advise the members of the Guild, who’re just starting their career?
ZK: I wish you all health, patience and love. They contain real happiness!
