I wanted to write about Iran. These days Iran is the center of crises: Political crises, security crises, economic crises, Nuclear crises, International sanctions, International terrorism cases and, Anti-Semitism, anti-Baha'iism, anti-Christianity, anti-Dervishism, anti-Kurdishism, anti-Arabism, anti-Baluchism, Violation of human rights laws, poverty, corruption, lack of administrative and economic development, mafia and government rents, Creating an atmosphere of terror, suppressing critics and protesters,... These and many other problems of Iran It has put the country in political isolation and at the center of problems.

But one thing is clear; the relationship with this country and the disregard for the rights of the Iranian people is non-logic.

I should add to the above problems the women's rights in Iran and invite you to watch a Kurdish clip.

The concert performed in Istanbul, Turkey ... Aynur, and Sertap with another lady.

Aynur is a Kurdish superstar singer and Sertap Erener is a singer superstar from Turkey. I would love to write a short biography about Sertap: She is from Istanbul, her father is from Amed(Diarbekr) the greatest Kurdish city in Kurdistan. I took this information

 from Wikipedia.The Sertap’s father's name is Nizamedin and he comes from a mixed family by Kurd and Arab ethnicities: Mother is Arab from Sert and fother is Kurd from Mush...Mush, Sert, and Amed are Kurdish cities in Kurdistan-Turkey.

The Sertap’s Mother is Yujel. Yujel family comes from Serbia.

What an amazing family ... with Kurdish, Serbian, Arab, and Turkish identity elements.

I suggest Wikipedia for being better its quality start to edit a phrase on the Sertap Erener page, it is a respect to millions of Kurdish people if change the EASTERN ANATOLIA REGION to KURDISTAN-TURKEY.

I wish my dear colleague Benjamin the best in his life. He is my dear friend.

1- Please present yourself (Name, education, job, Civil status and...)

. Benjamin Birikale Bagula, university degree in Information and Communication Sciences. Author and writer. Single ... living in the city of Bukavu in eastern DR Congo.

 

2-what is your cultural specialize?

 

. To tell the truth, I do not have a professional cultural specialization, but I intervene as an autodidact in literature, where I write novels, poems, tales, short stories and essays.

 

3- When and how did you become interested in this field of culture?

. I wouldn't say it hit me. I was drawn to literature for my direct big brother. Aufait, in his adolescence, he gave himself more to literature or even reading. It was around 2014, if I remember correctly, that little by little I started to have a taste for reading, it looks like stunted growth. In 2015, at the time I was still in high school, I was in the terminal when I started writing my first novel "Le Journalisme qui Bleeding", too bad it has not yet been edited. When I finished this novel, I began to assert myself as an author, little by little with those around me...

 

4- Who was your motivator?

. My literary arts instructor was my older brother, the poet Joseph-Aiglon Birikale. He gave me a taste for the pen.

 

5- What was your parent's reaction?

. Seeing that the youngest son was reading himself, had not had a great event in the family, because the path was already marked out to me in advance that the family already has a poet and also, without forgetting that in childhood I was already writing religious songs ...

 

6- When started you such as a professional Author-Poet?

.  As a professional author, I can say that it is today that I started. When I saw my novel "Lola / Intrigue du destin" published under French skies. I can say that it is now that I am proud to have written books. It is today that I can have the luxury of being called a writer, it is in this month of August 2020.

 

7- Are you thankful and happy because of your activities as Author-Poet?

. As who would say, writing and publishing are two major stages in the life of a writer, I would not like to make a hasty conclusion in relation to my assessments of the profession of the author ...

 

8-Tell us Please: Do you see a special connect between Author and culture, between literary and culture?

. The future of literature appears in two parts: "the downward shutter, and the upward shutter" in the first shutter, all note the decline of the literary consolation since the advent of the television series, this puts down the reading, unlike in previous years when reading served as what television took on today. In the ascending pane,

 

9- Why do some literary works become immortal?

 In this sense, visions are huge. We are still in the works with several projects in the pipeline. Once the background is secured, materialization will be effective. You know, in an environment like ours, here in DR Congo where everything seems not to be moving forward, carrying out large projects as well as small projects requires significant resources. But I am ready to be part of structures and associations to raise the literary culture in my region and in the whole world.

 

10- How you see the view, the future of literature and culture? You are an Author; you have opinions surely...

. To my knowledge, I believe that the only way to help the world is to preach love. The world is in disarray for lack of love. If we could live as a brother and in love for one another, the world would be a smile for all of us. If we love each other, we can create a world where every human lives and enjoys fair privileges without contempt, without xenophobia, and thus build a world without racism. And it all starts with love. Allow me to complete this thought with what the great man William Branham said "It is love that produces works".

 

11- Can you become one part of the cultural movement for motivation in youth or new generation in your country and so than?

I can only thank your media for thinking of me. Regarding the readers, I invite them to continue to support the efforts you are deploying in favor of culture. I believe that I am the first Congolese to speak on your media, I suggest that you do not stop at me, but also to give luck to other Congolese and African brothers who would like to express their ideas through your media. However, I invite readers to get my new novel "Lola / Intrigue du destin" which is for sale on the Hervé Éditions site and on several online sales sites such as Amazon.

Thank you.
