He must be about 56 years old. sits at his desk as the manager of his small company, it's not more than 1 month that i started working there as a part time job, he doesn't know me well yet, but it doesnt stop him from talking to me about anything..

he : ( ... yeah, thats how the situation here is, there's nothing here for youth, no future, nothing, those who have good knowledge never stay here, they immigrate to other countries, why should they stay? young people in Germany can spend 7 Euro to go to a disco and dance and have fun for few hours, but what about iranian young girls or boy? what can they do with 7000 tomans? where can they go? or, someone who is graduated from university can get a car easily, he/she has thousands of euros salary per month, but what about here? they cant buy a 60 square meter house even if they save all their monthly payment for about 20 years! )

i didn't answer him, i knew he was right so i just smiled and looked at him, but i really felt a GREAT desire in me to shout at him " Stop it! ". i cant stand it anymore, these kinds of comparisons, why don't they keep their experiences for themselves? why do they tell us about what they have seen in other countries? about the easier and more relaxed life. don't they know that we will hate our stressful boring lives if we know there are better situations in other countries? specialy that you hear this sad repeated story everyday!

Now that we have to live in this sh*t mullahs did to iran!! it will get more difficult to stand it when somebody keeps telling " poooof! what a bad smell, do you know there are some people in this world who don't have to be in bad smelling rooms? do you know there's something called nice smell? do you know you are poor? do you know... "

First of I admire the fact that you're writing in english. that's very respectful. I disagree with some of your thoughts regarding the youth situation in Iran and elsewhere. not every student can get a good salary in let's say Germnay and have fun an also not everyone can have a good job and a successful life in Iran. It all depends upon your intelligence and your skills from what you've learned. you can't expect every single peron in Iran to be satiffied with the way that his or her life is going on. and the same thing holds true for Iranians all around the world.

Hi

I don't think so at life in a another country than Iran give a Iranian young man/woman happiness. Life in the westeren country is not so easy as yoy think so or as the young Iranian think. I came out of Iran for 20 years ago when I was 22 years old. I have experienced a lot of bad and good things. The only think I will tell you is that the life is diffcult no matter where you are. Expected you have a rich father!!!
I can tell you that the young immigrants whith black hair can not enter a disco in the country where I live. 50 % of immigrants are unemployed. And if you come from the middel east they call you terrorist.

Good for you, Iranian Girl! It would be great if we all lived in Paris, France circa 1925, but too bad we all have to Be Here Now, so tell the old man to wipe up his tears and think about what's good about what we got, what I like to call "reality."

but is it hygienic to kiss a hundred and be kissed by hundreds on NOROOZ? This may worth it because people do it for showing love. Why HYGIEN is not concerned when you do it?!

I liked your blog. Actually I am new to this blog business and most likely it will be a history for me as soon as I post this message.

I am from Turkey. Lived 5-6 years in Canada. What I can tell you is life is hard everywhere. There are pro's and con's in each country. The good part of Canada was there were good persian restaurants (and greek!). The bad part were no turkish ones! :)

Anyway what you like is what you hate most. Individualism, freedom, you can do what ever you want, nobody cares. And that's the problem. Nobody cares!

Canada is a nice country for immigrants. Not a suprise since everybody is an immigrant! But the way to survive is working all the time. It is the same here in Istanbul too. But life seems to be more relaxed. You are part of the bigger family. The society you belong. Your roots are here. Your music, your food, your face, your bookstore, your beach, your friends. No matter how fertile is the new soil you are implanted, it is not the one that your roots are used to.

Time is changing. Many things are all around the world. I miss not to much. Else I would return back there. However, considering the harsh winters in Canada, I am glad being in Istanbul. After 30 years of living I have come to the following conclusion: I guess a good place to live in must have a nice climate so that you can walk around, not jailed in four walls. Secondly there must be things which will make you walk around. Squares, coffee shops, restaurants, beach fronts, streets, bridges, whatever your taste is. You name it. If these things are in Tehran, better you stay there. For me these are here, in Istanbul.

Remember, whereever you live, the only truth is you take yourself there with you.

Hope the best to Iranians. The news are not good nowadays...

Salaam,

I’m Iranian, moved to Holland (Europe) when I was 9, that was back in 1989. I have a Masters degree and went to a European University. Life in Europe is not easy. My Masters degree gets me a job, but far below my capabilities. Discrimination is very very present in the European society. Even the dumbest European thinks he/she knows more than me. As a ‘black head’ you’re supposed to clean their toilets, not manage a business. So why in God’s name did I did all the trouble to study if every single person is my boss? My dad, who was a senior engineer in Iran, is unemployed, my mom, who was a doctor is a maid. Our living standards have definitely not risen.


What I am trying to say is, I don’t know how you live in Iran, I left in 1989 as a kid, so maybe it’s a living hell, but don't believe the fact that the West is heaven, it’s not. Almost all Iranians complain about the same things: no respect, severe unemployment, severe discrimination after 9-11, lack of opportunities. The West is only heaven if you bring with you lots and lots of capital. Diplomas won't do you any good, capital will. Only then will you be able to actually live like in the movies or like successful Iranians in Beverly Hills. Capital makes you independent from Westerners themselves and only then is a good life possible. But the way I see it, if you have the capital I am talking about, you’ll be able to have a good time in Iran as well.

Khoda Hafez

Salar, Holland.
