Do you know which is the biggest and most beautiful lake in the world? Yes, you have fond it is the 400000km squared Caspian Lake. Actually, most people know Khazar as the Caspian. The name Khazar was taken from the name of the minority who lived at the seaside of Khazar. Because of there isn’t any connection with World ocean we call it lake, but because of its large size we call Khazar like sea. Surrounding the sea sides of Azerbaijan, Russia, Iran, Kazakhstan and Turkmenistan, the Caspian Sea is the plenty of natural recourses. The deepest place of the Caspian Sea is 1025 meter. There are many animals and plants. The income which is got from the petrol is the main part of Azerbaijani budget.

But the current situation of the Caspian Sea isn’t heartwarming.
According to the information which I got from the Ministry of Ecology and Natural Resources the most part of the pollution of the Caspian Sea is the industrial waste, agricultural refuse, exploitation of gas and oil wells. Another part of pollution takes the rivers which fall into the Caspian Sea and bring with themselves much slop.

What do our Youth think about this issue ?

Nigar Mammadova is a student. She thinks that the pollution of the Caspian Sea is increasing day by day. Our health and the life of livings in the Caspian Sea depend on us. We shouldn’t pollute the Caspian Sea. There had settled 15 million populations at the seaside of Caspian Sea.

Bayramov Shahriyar is a pupil. He thinks that there will not any result up to the time when we stop to throw the bottles into the water. It means, we and the state officials should work together in order to prevent this pollution.
Nadir Gurbanov, imagines the Caspian Sea like big aquarium. He says that the fish need care everyday.
Huseynova Jala is also a student. For her point of view the main reason of pollution of the Caspian Sea is the rivers like Kura, Aras, Volga which fall into the Caspian Sea. Experts says that it is very big indication. If we want that the Caspian Sea becomes clear we should care about the refining of the rivers.
Student Vugar Alkhasov thinks that actually, it is the problem of only Azerbaijan but it is the problem of all lateral states of Azerbaijan. In order to solve the problem we must combine our strength !

You got acquainted with the thought of our youth. Though there is a pollution problem in Caspian Sea but it is very beautiful. For me, the principle of Hotter – “If everybody sweep in front of his/her house, our world will become cleaner” is the best way to make our Caspian Sea clean.

How do you think what can we do ?

The relations between boys and girls

The aim of our investigation was to get know the relationships between boys and girls. And with the purpose I began to work with photographer Elmin. As the result of our investigation we divide issues to several forms. These forms reflects as the relationship between girls and boys, friend and lover. We faced differences, contradictions even, resistance when we were taken the photos from the outside.

For instance, the boy who is the name Fuad was dissatisfied from the taken his photo. He said that his relation with the girl is secret and he didn’t want that his friends or relatives know about this relationship. He added that there isn’t any strict attitudes between them just only boy and girl.

Another interviewer was Afsana. She told that if there isn’t any serious relationship between boy and girl we couldn’t speak about the attitudes at all. The same time we saw many lovers in the city and we witnessed that they were completely free. And they didn’t resist for taken theirs photos.

Tuberculosis or the trouble of Azerbaijan

Tuberculosis is the one of the global disaster which was taken place in the list of the Goals of Millennium Development Program. This disaster is the big problem for current Azerbaijan and its society. For the indications of the Azerbaijan State Static Committee there are more than 7451 people who has infected tuberculosis. And the official of Azerbaijan State Static Committee said that the reason of spreading of the disaster is lack of information among the people. And I decided to investigate the issue.

The first interviewer was 19 aged Nadir Saracli. He is the student of Baku Sate University. I asked him about awareness over this disaster, what is the reason for its spreading, how to protect of it and what it is the best way for protection. He said that he has no info over this issue. But he added that the area of its spreading is Baku. And as the reasons of spreading he indicated the anti-sanitaria especially. And added that there is no enough clinic in Azerbaijan.

The next interviewer was Jamala Guluiva. She told me by answering to my questions that the reason of spreading of tuberculosis is the pollution. And she the same time accuse the Universities and other educational institutions that they do not inform youth about the disaster and its effects.

I approached with the same question to Rasif Dunyamaliev who had already graduated the University. Rasif said that he had info about tuberculosis and he got this info from the books, himself. And by touching the reasons he told that it the issue of lacks of immunities, non well feeding. About the area of the spreading he especially showed the prisons. He told that last year more than 50 people died in prisons dealing with tuberculosis.

The next interviewer was Konul. She is a master at the University Foreign Languages. She told that it is very needed to inform the country people about this disaster. Konul said that it is a matter of unawareness.

And finally, I came to conclusion that the reason of spreading of this disaster is an unawareness of people and the sanitary rules which people must do but they don’t oblige them.
