I was born in the jewel of the "Loot" desert, the driest part of IRAN in a
city called Kerman in
1954 (1333 Iranian year........ and 25 years before the second Islamic
ruling in Iran).
More than 1001 nights or more of my childhood
nights I stared at stars
seemed to be as close as 100 feet away . Sleeping outdoor was (and is) a
common practice to enjoy the fresh air of late spring and some of summer
nights and also to save on the air-conditioning cost ( that did not exist).
Being a sensitive person I was very busy with certain things in my
childhood: day dreaming, reading books (about 100 a month!), filling up
pages in my memory booklet, writing bad poems that even myself did not like,
and the most pleasurable thing: listening to radio (a cordless 2-station ear
I think I have fallen in love more than 20 times between the 4th grade and
7th grade, but nothing come close to the first love of course. I was 7 and
she was 6. I still remember that beautiful face opening the big heavy door
of their house in the square near our house in Kerman and smiling at me.
Where she is today, I don't know. May be happily married with 20 kids (not
mine), maybe dead in some kind of accident, maybe executed by my government,
maybe rich and famous resting in a small island .........or maybe still
single, waiting for me.
I had a wonderful family all my life. I
thank my parents for cutting
their daily bread to give me decent education in best schools and
universities (BSc degree in Accounting and Masters degree in Business in
1981). My older sister Nasrin
teaches at University of Tehran and also helps injured people get recovered. My
little sister Simin whom I
call "Fessgheli= The little & the youngest" teaches at Southern
Polytechnic State University.
I wish my brother Saeed who was a genius, was alive (if he could survive in
the Iran-Iraq war) to see my web page today!
In 1978 I came to "UMRICA" or U.S.A and
from then things went like a crazy fast forward. I
married to a wonderful woman from Cuba, who left her beloved land
for the same reason that I did. Gave life to 2 kids:
Bijan (born in 1991) and Giselle
(born in 1992).
I published "PAKE MONTHLY" a community magazine with lots of art and
literary subjects between 1986 and 1991 in Atlanta, U.S.A.
I started writing a column for an independent newspaper called "IRANIANS"
in late 1999. Today I write better than my childhood years. I write for
liberty and freedom and aggressively tease on the fanatics (revolutionary
Islamists) who messed up the sweetest years of my life.
And I am here now......, In front of you on the wings of internet.
I hope you enjoy my satire that is being created to promote human values,
competition of cultures, self-god evolution, unity of powers and peaceful
existence of all people within a civilized society.
Love you all!
