Do you remember what you were doing on 8th of March, International Women's Day, in kindergarten and primary school? We cut tulips and digit 8 out of colored paper, glued them on a postcard and wrote "to my mom" with a felt-tip pen. What did your mom look like at that day? Was she happy or sad? The editorial board of Today.kz launches a small series of stories about mothers. Because they are so different.


Elmira Karmanova has presented the series of interviews called "Akem Turaly" ("About my father") with famous Kazakhstanis.
