Hello everyone, how are you?
My friend always said, “God helps lazy people!”
Don’t follow my friend! This is not true although it saved my day today!
Frankly, I didn’t know what to teach this week!! (Anybody may run out of words / topics from time to time!!)
I was just wondering what good topic to choose for this week when I saw ‘Persian measure units’ on our message board! If you remember I told you once that this message board is useful!! So, I found my topic for today!
I began to focus on this topic when I received a lovely e-mail from an on time student who gave me several points to talk about!! That’s why our Belgian Thibault is nice and lovely!! (Kidding!)
Now, I had a lot to talk about this week. So far God has helped me twice!!
But tonight when I was traveling in cyberspace, I came across a Persian radio station where God had decided to help me for the third time this week!!
I decided to spend some time and take a rest in this Persian radio station before I had to continue my journey in this endless space! Trying to listen to a pleasant interview, I found a lovely music!! Travel is always good!
I could hardly sacrifice this song for ‘Persian measuring service” today!!
So, I finally chose the topic for today. Please come back next week if you are a tailor!! We will have several measures in our next lesson.
Maybe you will call me ‘nationalist’ today because of this song! You try it by yourself and probably ‘nationalism’ will increase this week!!
I believe this song could be a kind of national song. In a wider meaning, it could be ‘international’ if we replaced one word of this song with another one. Here’s how:
The second line from the end reads: /a:shegh e har zareh i: az kha:k e ira:nam/ = I am in love with every single sand / part of Iran’s soil!
If we simply replace /ira:n /with /keyha:n/, which means UNIVERSE, we will have this: /a:shegh e har zareh i: az kha:k e keyha:næm/ = I am in love with every single sand / part of the universe’s soil!
This one seems deeper, at least to me!! You know why? Because the rain is generous to everything, everywhere, and everybody. Do not release your points and ideas now!! Please go through the song first and then give advice!
I have no idea about the singer or the lyricist. If you do, please let me know.
Before we go to this song, let me tell you that the quality of the original song was not better than this! Have fun!
