Free spirit

Because she is not dumb. Because she has always been heroic and proud and not a Ghirty Ghashamsham. Because she has never been fooled neither in her manner of singing nor in her social life. Because she had a free spirit and was never a mercenary ass-licker. Because she went through hell and crawled and climbed up to give joy to whoever listened to her voice. I do not want to rhapsodise, but she has the sincerity of a liberated human being. She is an achiever. She showed the trick of patience. And all of this in a sustained manner.



Because of her tenacity to live in Iran and endure all the restrictions placed on her. Moreover she represents the Iran I remember as a child and young man and the Iran which will never return.
