A Whirlwind Event in Turkey

By Linda Tancs

A whirling dervish is to Turkey what baseball is to America, a symbol of national pride and part of its custom, history and culture.  Celebrated each year in Konya during the weeklong Mevlana Festival, the dancers commemorate the life and death of Sufi master and poet Rumi, founder of the dervishes.  The event takes place at the sports stadium from 10 to 17 December.
