On her way she met a copy. The copy warned the Little Blind Text, that where it came from it would have been rewritten a thousand times and everything that was left from its origin would be the word “and” and the Little Blind Text should turn around and return to its own, safe country.

I am alone, and feel the charm of existence in this spot, which was created for the bliss of souls like mine. I am so happy, my dear friend, so absorbed in the exquisite sense of mere tranquil existence, that I neglect my talents.

But nothing the copy said could convince her and so it didn’t take long until a few insidious Copy Writers ambushed her, made her drunk with Longe and Parole and dragged her into their agency, where they abused her for their projects again and again. And if she hasn’t been rewritten, then they are still using her.

Far far away, behind the word mountains, far from the countries Vokalia and Consonantia, there live the blind texts. Separated they live in Bookmarksgrove right at the coast of the Semantics, a large language ocean. A small river named Duden flows by their place and supplies it with the necessary regelialia.

A collection of textile samples lay spread out on the table – Samsa was a travelling salesman – and above it there hung a picture that he had recently cut out of an illustrated magazine and housed in a nice, gilded frame. It showed a lady fitted out with a fur hat and fur boa who sat upright, raising a heavy fur muff that covered the whole of her lower arm towards the viewer.

Gregor then turned to look out the window at the dull weather. Drops of rain could be heard hitting the pane, which made him feel quite sad. “How about if I sleep a little bit longer and forget all this nonsense”, he thought, but that was something he was unable to do because he was used to sleeping on his right, and in his present state couldn’t get into that position. However hard he threw himself onto his right, he always rolled back to where he was.

The will to win, the desire to succeed, the urge to reach your full potential these are the keys that will unlock the door to personal excellence.

One morning, when Gregor Samsa woke from troubled dreams, he found himself transformed in his bed into a horrible vermin. He lay on his armour-like back, and if he lifted his head a little he could see his brown belly, slightly domed and divided by arches into stiff sections.

Is Azerbaijan experiencing a surge in suicide amongst girls?

Avatar

Published

on

During the last week alone, three girls in Azerbaijan have committed suicide, and two more suicide attempts were prevented. The issue immediately became the center of heated discussions on social media. So what is the reason behind the surge in suicide among girls in Azerbaijan?

  • Child abuse cases in Georgia down nearly 30% in first 8 months of 2020
  • Quarantine in Azerbaijan: suicide, sexual harassment by police and other consequences

Jumped from the 20th floor

It all started when 20-year-old Sevil Atakishieva died, throwing herself out of the window of an apartment on the 20th floor of a tower block.

The news blew up social media: Sevil had been an active Facebook user and was friends with many young activists in Azerbaijan.

Sevil Atakishiyeva

Overnight, Sevil’s social media comments were brought to light. In them, she complained about pressure from her parents and hinted at a possible suicide.

The father of the deceased refutes

On the third day after the death of Sevil, three TV channels interviewed her father about pressures which social media users saw as the main reason for her suicide.

“As a father, I had the right to yell at her when necessary and what could I do, let her go outside to become a street girl? We were all shouted at when we were little. There is no person whose parents didn’t yell at them”, he said in his interview.

Meanwhile, Sevils’s mother accidentally told reporters that Sevil’s father beat her.

Feminist’s screenshots spark investigation by prosecutor’s office

“I can’t say for sure why Sevil committed suicide. But the physical pressure and psychological terror played a huge role in her outlook on life.

She wanted to leave the country to get an education, saved up money, even planned to marry fictitiously in order to get rid of the pressure in the family. Apparently, the plans did not work out, which upset her even more.

Sevil writes in one of her posts: “If something happens to me, keep these messages in mind”.

I fulfill her request, but I am tormented by the fact that I was not aware of what she was going through while Sevil was still alive”, feminist Gulnara Mehdiyeva wrote on her Facebook page.

The screenshots that Gulnara posted to her social media were later used as the material for a criminal case initiated by the prosecutor’s office investigating the death of Sevil Atakishieva.

Increase in suicide among girls

The day after the death of Sevil Atakishieva, another case of suicide was reported in Sumgait, the satellite city of Baku. 20-year-old Vusala Rahimli drowned herself in the sea. The reason’s behind Vusala’s suicide have not yet been clarified.

Vusala Rahimli lived with her uncle to study in Sumgait, but she was originally from Yardimli, a city in the southern part of Azerbaijan.

Fidan Ismayilzade threw jumped from the 8th floor

In the suburbs of Baku, 20-year-old Fidan Ismayilzade threw herself out of the window of the eighth floor of an apartment building. She died at the scene, and again, the reasons behind her actions are not clear.

Two more failed suicide attempts

A 19-year-old resident of the city of Mingachevir, Amila Latifova, threw herself into the Kura River to commit suicide. She was rescued by employees of the Ministry of Emergency Situations.

On the roof of a nine-story building in Baku, the police managed to prevent a suicide attempt of another girl.

What are the reasons behind it?

Psychologist Jamila Rahimli, believes that beating children may lead to severe psychological damage: “If we manage to realize that, we can then move on to talking about psychological abuse”, she said.

“Psychological abuse is a type of behavior that is not exclusively demonstrated by parents. However, the most oppressive is the psychological pressure that comes from the parents.

If you ever find yourself saying: “I do everything for my child, they have everything they need, but they still don’t like me, do not talk to me, do not leave their room, only dream about moving to another country and have no friends or loved ones”, then you yourself are guilty of years-long abuse, even if you never beat or starved your child. It is just a silent expression of what your child cannot express”, Rahmil posted on her Facebook page.

What are Russia’s goals in Karabakh? Commentary from Baku

Avatar

Published

on

The latest events in Khankendi (Armenian – Stepanakert): the celebration of the anniversary of the formation of the ‘Nagorno-Karabakh Republic’ and the presence of Russian peacekeepers in the area, have irritated those back in Baku.

Azerbaijani political scientist Shahin Jafarli attempts to answer the question that interests many: what is Russia trying to achieve in Karabakh?

  • How can Azerbaijanis return to Khojali or Armenians to Hadrut?
  • New rules for entering Nagorno-Karabakh
  • Azerbaijani ‘Karabakh cleansing’ stamp condemned in Armenia

What happened?

A celebratory march was held recently in Khankendi, capital of the Nagorno-Karabakh Autonomous Region, to mark the anniversary of the proclamation of independent ‘Nagorno-Karabakh Republic’ – an unrecognized entity within the internationally recognized borders of Azerbaijan.

Baku was particularly irritated by the fact that among the celebrating crowd, people in Russian peacekeeping uniforms could easily be spotted.

Russian peacekeeping forces were brought into the part of Karabakh that remained on the Armenian side at the time of the signing of the trilateral statement of November 10, 2020. This document, signed by the presidents of Azerbaijan and Russia, as well as the Prime Minister of Armenia, put an end to the second Karabakh war, which lasted for 44 days.

What is Russia trying to achieve in Karabakh?

“Russia is enabling the celebration of the anniversary of the separatist movement in Karabakh. Why?”, asks political scientist Shahin Jafarli in his commentary.

In Jafarli’s opinion, Russia “must show that the main issues have not yet been resolved, which is why the presence of peacekeepers is still required”.

“If everything that Azerbaijan considers to be an issue is resolved, the country’s sovereignty will extend towards the whole of Karabakh, the presence of peacekeepers will no longer be required and the mission will have to end.

On the other hand, we should not forget that Russia, as well as various parties in the West, consider Armenian separatism to be legitimate. Recently, when discussing Karabakh, Putin often stressed that the conflict was first sparked by the pogroms against Armenians in Sumgait, which led to the Karabakh Armenians arming themselves in order to protect their lives and dignity.

In other words, this issue is not likely to be resolved quickly. Russia will sometimes demonstrate its support for Azerbaijan and appear attentive to our demands, for example, by not allowing Western allies of Armenia to enter Karabakh. However, sometimes Russia will do exactly the same for Armenia.

The reopening of communication routes in the region under the control and moderation of Russia is in line with the geopolitical interests and long-term goals of Moscow. Be under no illusions about the current state of affairs. Why would either Russia or Iran want to facilitate the reunification of Turkey with Azerbaijan and the rest of the Turkic world?

Such a scenario will only be possible if Azerbaijan joins the Eurasian Economic Union, and Turkey, in turn, breaks away from NATO to build its future around the Eurasian project in cooperation with Iran and Russia. In other words, an enormous geopolitical ‘earthquake’ …

Recent events show that Putin’s Russia does not consider this prospect unrealistic and is, indeed, pursuing a policy that would eventually lead to such seismic shifts. One cannot rule out the possibility of Russia receiving some encouraging messages from Turkey.

In general, the way in which Russia formulated its policies during this period showed its ability to respond quickly and establish an efficient geopolitical strategy.

Remember the state of affairs before the war broke out – Russia was losing the Caucasus:

– Moscow has long lost Georgia, and the occasional moving of the borderline in South Ossetian direction does not change anything;

– Russia, whose authority among young Armenians has already been severely damaged after the revolution in May 2018, lost its dominance in Yerevan;

– In the eyes of Azerbaijani citizens, Moscow “died” back on January 20, 1990 [a violent crackdown of the civilian population of Baku in an attempt to eradicate Azerbaijani independence movement], and no matter how powerful an influence it has on the Azerbaijani authorities, its efficiency is still questionable.

In the aftermath of the war, which ended with our victory and the surrender of the Armenians, Russia brought its troops here and created an instrument for spreading institutionalized influence and bringing pressure on Azerbaijan. Armenia got itself even more tied up. Moscow is not particularly concerned with public opinion.

Before the aggressively-minded Biden government had been formed in the United States, Russia was able to create a protective line against Western expansion on its southwestern borders – in the Caucasus, which Russia considers to be a region of strategic geopolitical importance.

We are based directly on this line. During a recent meeting with Russia’s most prominent editors-in-chief, Putin referred to the strengthening of Russia’s position in the post-Soviet space as one of his greatest achievements.

The main question now is how long this new reality will last”, Shahin Jafarli posted on his Facebook page.
