Novruz Bayrami

Novruz Bayrami | Caucasus Conflict Voices | Scoop.it
About 45 minutes from the Georgian border with Armenia is Marneuli, a regional center mainly inhabited by ethnic Azeris with ethnic Armenians among those making up the remainder of the population. Located in the part of Georgia where most of the country's 280,000 ethnic Azeris live, traffic to and from Yerevan travels through Marneuli on a daily basis. And, despite the conflict between Armenia and Azerbaijan over the disputed territory of Nagorno Karabakh, there are also some villages such as Tsopi which are co-inhabited by ethnic Armenians and Azeris. On 21 March 2011, Marneuli celebrated Novruz, the Zoroastrian New Year. Also celebrated in Turkey, Iran, and elsewhere, Novruz is an important date in the Azerbaijani calendar and in Georgia is now recognized as a national holiday.

On August 8, 2008 many Americans learned that Russia had gone to war with a mysterious country called Georgia over an even stranger territory called South Ossetia. Both Georgia and South Ossetia were located not on the southeastern seaboard of the United States, but in a mountainous region south of Russia called the Caucasus. The war was short, a mere four days, but during that time it became an campaign issue between Barack Obama and John McCain, a moment made memorable when McCain declared “We are all Georgians now.” For the Cold Warriors of yesteryear the world was remade familiar: Russia was enemy #1 again, Mikheil Saakashvili’s was a victim of Russian imperialism, and the Cold War was back as if it had never left.
