BAYANGALI ALIMZHANOV, WRITER:
- The main idea of my book is to show the unity between the Kazakh and Kyrgyz people. I am happy that I have the opportunity to express my view on the Manas Epic and that our Kyrgyz brothers and sisters can learn about it. Just recently, I presented my book as a gift to the Kyrgyz Ethnic Assembly. Next, I am planning to pass this book to the Kyrgyz libraries with the help of the embassy.
