Dance and its Unchanging Meaning

Dance, what can we explain it’s meaning ? I think , it show our emotion with music and act . It does not matter how much time pass , its meaning will be the same . Dance  can’t leave from music. They are always together .so , ıf the music change , dance figures do , too.

I said , dance showed our feelings . so do emotion change ? I don’t think so ,people love , hate , angry etc . It has been the same until now from last like folk’s values.


Dance also shows our folk’s tradition  and feeling . Each of act explains  another something . Sometimes it is suffering , sometimes it is love , sometimes it  is funny event , sometimes it is everything about one thing.

Maybe ,when we see at first, we can not understand its meaning . But if we know national’s culture , history etc.. , we can get it easily .

odissi-002 When can we dance our traditional dance ?  It is seen generally  everywhere when day is special for national . But this kind of dance  can be seen after the  wedding day , after birth , in religious holiday etc …

I just want to say , dance shows not only our feeling but also our national’s tradition no matter when it is time. Okey we always say ,everything is changing . Maybe , we are wrong . maybe the only thing unchanging is dance’s meaning.

 The habitude is a behaviour sample to show .  We can’t choose by saying it is useful or harmful.A people can choose neither their parents nor their living in their environment.So, it shows that the habitudes are influenced from the environment.

    If people don’t find life valuable everytime ,he/she faces negative things and if that person is pessimistic, his/her habitude  will be bad.For example, he/she  can be addicted to cigarette,drug and alcohol.It isn’t just like cigarette or drug.It will be time trouble, the sleep problem , rude attitude towards people and environment.Of course the habitude isn’t one direction.To show around positive behaviour toward negative situation,to thank person who makes a mile, walk perpendiculirly,to  sport are good habitude.

      The habitude changes in time, for example the sleeping time.Sleeping is important need for people.This need shows different from people to people . It was said ‘Children  had to sleep nine hours.Than it was reduced by saying 8,7,6… .This is proportional changing of the world.As long as the world is changing, a lot of things become fast and increase.So while people are saying to catch up with it,they start to restrict meal or sleeping time.

  The changing didn’t affect only  sleeping or  eating.New needs, tastes and new habitude became.It is a simple sample,messages are used  instead of fumes for communacation, oven are used instead of wood to make a meal,cars are used instead of walking to go somewhere,people phone their friends are used to ask instead of visiting.If we want to give more  samples,to shop on the net,to pay by message our bills, to listen to lessons via tablets,to find out every illness by one research etc…

  The habitude is so wide concept.It is not only behaviours and remarks.For exmple mother and father words.We have been using two words since we started speaking. In addition to these good morning, i hope you will be good soon ,thank you such daily words are our some habitudes.There ,a word used in our times is ‘dude’.Its meaning isn’t known exactly, it sticks our language.

  Habitude is too different for us to change or to leave.The samples that i gave weren’t became quickly.We give up our bad behaviour either we understand our mistake or when we are in trouble.

The Coming Change with Eurovision

The coming variation with Eurovision

By Sümeyye Serenboy, Tarsus/Turkey. 

The Eurovision song competition  which most countries attend started in 1956 and it has been going on . It’s aim actually to make common broadcast. First , it was only song competition, peole generally singed the song with their languages. Than , people started to dance , wear gaudy clothes , sing their songs with common language(generally). So ,it happened to performance competition . it was too changed and the change is continuing .

I think, it is so good contest . Most countries can approach to each others . We can know various cultures .So called, it is only non- politic events along with countries.  But, while we are voting , we can approach politic owing to  the country is our neighbour. ıt was too existing in past but now it is reduced . Anyway , it is debatable topic.

I just want to say , the change is not in youth , their reference , technology, etc. The variation is everything . maybe , i cant  explain to give one sample, but you understand what i say.


From Generation to Generation

to generation from generation

By Sümeyye Serenboy, Tarsus/Turkey.

In 1967

My grandmother had big family. She had five sisters and six brothers, she was biggest child of their house . She did not study , because it was forbidden that girl children study.She narrated , one day while she was working , the teacher of village saw her , he went to speak to her father in order to educate her , they agreed , but than ,her father gave up to educate her . She worked in their field , cooked meal for her family. As she said , she could not live her life .


In 1988

My mother’s youth time ,she had four sister , her big sister went to somewhere to study , so she was the biggest daughter of  house . She did what her father and mother want to thing from her .When the television came to her living place first  , it was white – black , my mother and her sisters went to their neighbour in order to watch it. Next  , they bought it . She was spending her time helping to her father. She weared clothes which her father  bought . sometimes ,He bought big size cause she could wear forward . One school was in there that time , so she was going to school difficulty. When my grandpa died , she was 16 and had to leave from school . So , she had to work somewhere . She could not be job that she want .


In 2012

Our time is too different from old time. We want to evidence something to people . You see ,the young people is actor in most TV programme, we can announce our voice (sometimes it does not  work but we feel like important ourselves.),we can attend  social activities, we read books which we like, sport,  meet our friends etc…. Most of us have a special room , so we can be alone when we so bored. Most of us don’t have to work . When we want to something , it can be soon . We can buy lots of clothes. We can study in school which we want and go easily.  We are lucky . Maybe , somebody say opposite of it, but when we look old time, we can understand .

Timerserver Youth

We can’t say “the old times are the same now”. For example, my mother helped her father in her free time , my father did what was needed in his village, but now, my brother or most of his friends spend their time by playing with the computer, chatting their friends on telephone. As long as the technology develops, the young people connect it. Of course, i dont blame the technology, i just want to say to youth, namely we have to be careful. Because as long as we connect it, we will move away the real life. We can create a new life for ourselves and start to live in there. So , we want to meet new friends. Maybe we can find, but how much can they be real. We can’t realize first that it is so dangerous, but when the time goes forward, it will be too late to do something.

The elders are complaining about time and timeserver youth. But it is not all our fault. Okay, we think, maybe we can change something but they have to be with us. They are always saying that they are more experienced than us. So we need their help. They know, the world is changing. So, everything is changing. It is not the same now and old times.They have to keep up with it now.
