Yerlan Sydykov

Mukhtar Auezov (1897–1961) and Shakarim Kudayberdiyev (1858–1931), famous Kazakh writers, had a long personal contact, which influenced both of them. During long conversations with wise Shakarim, young Mukhtar drew wisdom of folk knowledge and took notes for his future novel about Abay. Shakarim enjoyed communication with keen, energetic and talented writer. Mukhtar inspired; Shakarim supported, tutored, and counseled.
