Prishtina Used To Have Two Rivers

by Attila Beksac

Prishtina seems too hasty these days. The city,  which is the youngest capital of both Balkans and Europe has lots of problems to solve while ‘turbo-urbanism’ has taken effect in whole its distritcs .

It can be said, this experience that Prishtina has been tasting since the end of Kosovo War is familiar and has taken its roots from the ex-memories of territory’s rich historical cities. ‘Identity crisis’ seems obviously  the most suitable topic to call this developments.

Qyteti im, deshira ime, zhgenjimi im…

QYTETI IM, DËSHIRA IME, ZHGËNJMI IM, DHEMBJA IME

…Qyteti nuk është një tekst i rrallë, bile nuk është tekst fare. Do të ishte iluzioni më i keq nëse qyteti lexohet si një objekt, prandaj ai është një formë e jetës, një entitet shoqëror.

Qyteti në funksion të ndërtesës arkitektonike, apo ndërtesa arkitektonike në harmoni me qytetin? E ngrita këtë problematikë që në fillim të këtij shkrimi protestues e njëherit edhe lehtësues për ndërgjegjen time të rënduar nga pa mundësia e ndryshimit rrënjësor të praktikave të tilla që dita ditës po e degradojnë e shkatërrojnë çerdhen e jetës së lumtur sociale – Qytetin! . Më gumëzhijnë vargjet e Migjenit “Ah si se kam një grusht të fortë, ti e bie këtij malit që heshtë”, veçse unë po e përdori në një kontekst pak më ndryshe porse me të njëjtin vrull inat, dhe pezëm.
