A good music is one thing, a national anthem is something else. I was born and grown with 'sorood-e-shaahanshaahi' as our official national anthem. But it didn't feel as national at all. I never associated it with my identity. But in school, back in those days, we had a music class, in which 'Ey-Iran' anthem was also taught... and it clicked instantly. I don't think we can ever substitute something that clicks instantly. How it does it, I don't know. But that's what it does.

... then of-course, after the Islamic revolution, I was introduced to the anthem 'anjaza-anjaza'... that was love in the first sight!
