NASREDDİN HOCA (1208-1284) A popular scholar, He was famously considered the foremost protagonist of comical tales with an emotional content or other messages.

Another important element in Nasreddin Hodja stories is the donkey, a reflection of the feelings of the people. It is impossible to imagine Nasreddin Hoca without his donkey, which is itself a vehicle of satire. In one of his stories Hodja was going somewhere, he got on his donkey with his back facing to the front. The people yelled at him: You are sitting on your donkey the wrong way round. No, he said. It's just that the donkey is standing the wrong way round.
