Documented Glory

by San Diego Boy (not verified) on

Dear Ostaad:
We Iranian are very proud of our heritage
Every where we go, we brag about our 2500 year old empire and it’s glory and the rest of the story.
But To be frank with you , we had not much convincing evidence on any of it.( basically not much to show for it) I know, I know, you are going to refer me to a zillion books in all the libraries and museums and yada yada yada .

The Fact the Matter is: No matter how Pahlavi’s Were or how we feel about them They are the only Documented ( at list in pictures and Visual media ) of this glory we are proud of .

Mr. Kadivar has been working very hard to put this in some perspective. No body else is in this site. Baba jan kadivar Dastet dard Nakoneh.

schoolboy crush on any queen whose picture you come across.  Do you put them up on your palyroom walls and look at them admiringly all day?

BTW, how did Ms. Frah Diaba become and "empress"? Was it because Iran was an "empire" during the deposed shah, or you just can't get a grip looking at her picture?
