AKHP Public Lecture May 26th: Aral Sea: Past, Present and Future
The current lowering of the Aral Sea began more than 50 years ago, and scientists have been discussing this issue since 1961. At the time, the main reason for the water level decline was due to the rapid development of the extensive irrigated agriculture along the two main Central Asian rivers, Amudarya and Syrdarya, and both of them flow into Aral Sea. The water balance of the Aral Sea consisted of the income from river water, atmospheric precipitates and underground flowing with the deduction of evaporation loss. Evaporation always plays very important role in Aral Sea water-fullness in the arid area of water-less deserts.

AKHP Public Lecture March 31st: Let not whoever has not been associated with culture, be proud of their happiness
The artist has chosen this couplet by Tajik poet and philosopher Nosir Khusrav as some kind of epigraph for the narrative of his vision of life, of an easel painting, and of distinctive features of this type of art. The artist draws inspiration from nature and human spirit. He is fascinated by the diversity and harmony of nature, and by humans who can overcome difficulties. Slow flow of a river that rolls its waters by a steep mountain; multicolored mosaics of flat rocks, covering the river’s bottom and protruding from the clear water not far from the bank. A woman from a mountain village, who washes dishes, sitting on the bank; fresh breeze that caresses her face, making her smile. This environment is her home; it gives her comfort. These are the themes that Mansurov draws in his works. The first painting is entitled The Silk Road and comprises two artworks.
