Abay is a Kazakh iron ore. It is the duty of the generation to propagate the instructive life and rich heritage of the poet. President Kassym-Zhomart Tokayev in his article "Abay and Kazakhstan in the XXI century" said: "Almost all modern civilized countries can be proud of their great historical figures. Among them are politicians, statesmen and public figures, commanders, poets and writers, masters of art and culture. The Kazakh people are not alone in having children. Abay has a special place among them ... Lao-tzu and Confucius in China, Dostoevsky and Tolstoy in Russia, Voltaire and Rousseau in France. In the same way, we need to get to the point where all foreigners can name Abay at once in Kazakhstan. "It would be a great honor if other people would pay attention to us and say, 'The Kazakh people are the people of Abay.'
