Postby Turanian » Mon Aug 01, 2005 1:11 am

Hello all. I am new here, and just wanted to introduce myself before i start participating in various threads...

I'm a Turanian, from the Republic of Turkey, and - as you may well have gathered - am interested in the Turkic realms, domains and peoples as well as Greek-Turkish-Cypriot politics, history, culture and relations.

So hi! : )

Thanks for all the warm welcomes everyone, and you erolz. : ) Much appreciated. I'll decrease the size of my sig, ok.

For those who asked:

The Turan reffers to the vast swathes of Eurasia which the Turkic people inhabit, live, breath and exist on. It is the name that pinpoints the destiny of the Turkic race and accentuates our true roots in the very heartland where the armies of Genghis and Atilla marched forth with such harrowing pride and honour.

It is the entity that embodies both earth and flesh in the eternal spirit of the Turkic people. No matter how individualistic we get, we, as Turks, cannot escape the fact that we are Turanians.

A Turanian is someone who sees themselves as part of the people of the vast land of Turan, be they Turkish, Hungarian, Finnish, Mongolian or Manchurian.

:lol: :lol: I'll assume you're joking Sourcey. Manchurian, not Mancunian re...

As for the Finns, their origins are from the Ugric areas of Siberia (origins shared by modern Magyars. Since this area was considered part of the Turkic world, Turanians obviously claim these folk as their own. However, the link between the Finns and the Turkic world is tenuous and highly disputed as they emerged from different geographical areas in Siberia and Central Asia.
