Flowering Nasredin Hoca
I love to read stories! And my childhood was such a wonderful world of stories. One of the witty heros that I particularly enjoyed was Nasredin Hoca. Nasredin Hoca lived in Turkey in 13th century and appears in thousands of witty and stories. The stories have spread to other countries as well. This little ceramic doll of Naredin was given to me by a colleague from Uzbekistan.
So, meet Nasredin Hoca. Ikebana and Nasredin have something in common – they both tell us important stories that can help us lead wiser and more beautiful lives.
