Wish you all a happy Norooz and a magnificent new year, my dear, dear friends! âœ½ âœ¾ âœ¿ â€ â âƒ â‹
On a side note: I leave you with a Norooz song from 1976. Do pay attention to the first lines in the verse, how the song which is supposed to be a nativistic/nationalistic cry complains over the westernisation of the Iranian society, while getting nostalgic about (pay attention) the good old days wherein not a single “namaaz” and “roozeh” was neglected! In other words the Islamic identity! Now, these words spoken to a scene featuring seventies style hipsters lounging while a scantily clad girl dances for them! This my dear friends is the
irooni irony of our culture in a nutshell! No wonder the tragic events that followed some years later and now everyone blatantly denies contributing to!
