Persian Culture in White House

April 9, 2008

Did you remember I wrote about Haft Sin table in this post? Today I found an amazing picture called: Haft Sin in White House. You know that Iran and United States goverments have’nt any relationship! or this relationship is turbidness! but this job is Admirable 🙂

A traditional Haft Sin table celebrating Nowruz, the Persian New Year, is seen set Wednesday, March 19, 2008, in the State Dining Room of the White House. Nowruz is, in Persian and some other cultures, including Kurdish culture, a family-oriented holiday celebrating the New Year and the coming of spring. The Haft Sin table has seven items symbolizing new life, joy, love, beauty and health, sunrise, patience and garlic to ward off evil. White House photo by Chris Greenberg

Did You Know Iran?

January 12, 2008

As an Iranian girl, one of things make me sad is that the people of other nations haven’t good viewpoint about my country Iran. When I chat with them, many people ridicule Iranian because they didn’t become familiar with Iran and our great and peaceful culture and history because of political issues!

Iran is a great country with a deeply culture. We have many scientists, inventers, historians and famous poets like Kharazmi, Abo Ali Sina (Ebn Sina), Moulavi, Hafiz, Saadi, Roodaki, Zakaria Raazi, Attar Neishabouri, Khayyam, Ferdowsi, Jaber ebn Hayyan, Dr Hesabi, Parvin Etesami, and Forough Farrokhzad (these 2 last mentioned are females), and so on (list of iranian scientists and scholars). They were celebrated man of their age. Also many of them have international celebrity till now! The area of Iran is above 1 million kilometers. Iran’s population is about 70 millions. Iran has Caspian Sea in the north and Uremia Lake inside it (in the Azerbaijan province). The Persian Gulf and Hormoz Sea are located in south of Iran. Also Iran has so many resources of natural gas (second rank in world after Russia) and oil and other mineral reserves. The most famous neighbors of Iran are:  Russia, Turkey, Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Saudi Arabia.

You can find more about iran in wikipedia.

In our childish books (in elementary and secondary school) we learned that we must respect to other countries and peoples and their cultures. Seemingly this is not in vogue in other countries especially in modern and developed countries! They always despise people in developing or under developing countries. They usually think these countries are petrified and backward nations!

I’m interested in to know what you learn about other countries in your geographical and historical books, especially about Iran? Please let me know… 

I hate racism. I think everybody should love his/her country and also respect to other nations and shouldn’t belittling their nationalities and mores.  

Related note: I found this nice poem, This poem was nominated poem of 2005. Written by an African kid, amazing thought :

“When I born, I Black, When I grow up, I Black,
When I go in Sun, I Black, When I scared, I Black,
When I sick, I Black, And when I die, I still black…
And you White fellow,
When you born, you pink, When you grow up, you White,
When you go in Sun, you Red, When you cold, you blue,
When you scared, you yellow, When you sick, you Green,
And when you die, you Gray…
And you call me colored???..

Good News

December 11, 2007

Recently one of good news for any of Iranians was the US spy agencies report about Iran’s Nuclear Activities. this report clearly said that:

Iran HAS NO NUKES!!! and all of Iran’s nuclear activities is PEACEFULL.

Its only conclusion that President Bush doesn’t have any other Pretenses to Propounding the war or other military solutions against Iran and then the Iran’s Nuclear file will be closed soon 🙂 I think anybody exhausted to hear about this issue!!!
