We are setting off a completely different adventure with a new hope and an excitement. Firsts are unforgettable and full of hopes. It will be the first newspaper in English in Konya and as the originator of this newspaper we are also living unforgettable moments in our lives.
Konya, which has an ancient civilization structure, has been a garden for colourful civilizations, a peaceful corner and a safe harbour during the history of humanity for centuries.
Konya is a city that attracts people with its earnest, entrepreneur, and innovator character. The city hugs the new civilizations without fighting against the olds in every era of the history.
Up to now our city hasn’t got any media in English which would enable to share this city’s troubles, messages, hopes and history with the rest of the world. Indeed, Konya has always been connected to the modern world with its agriculture, industry, economy and tourism and shared its production, labour and great efforts. In this context, THE KONYA NEWS is the first.
Its duty and burden is huge with its responsibilities.
Its duty is to transfer the age-long story, the pains, the hopes, the joys and the efforts, the notes, the rhythms and the songs of an ancient city to its new readers.
We wish that we would be able to carry this burden and we can reach you in a unique way.
With all these thoughts in our minds we say you HELLO and we start to breath in our life in papers.
Hello THE KONYA NEWS, Hello the people all over the world wherever you are reading or hearing us we call out to you with Rumî’s verses;
Come, come whoever you are.
Wanderer, worshiper, lover of leaving. It doesn’t matter.
Ours is not a caravan of despair.
Come, even if you have broken your vows a thousand times.
Come, yet again, come, come…
We invite you to Konya, the cradle of civilization, and the first English newspaper of Konya, THE KONYA NEWS.
We come to you and hope you’ll come to us, too…
