“Mother” has a divine meaning in Iran, because this reaction has a biological-genetic origination and it cannot be limited neither geographically nor culturally. The mother is mother everywhere with dignity, patience and kindness in her inner and outer self even if in the homeless folks’ camp and in the harshest circumstances. Mother is the sweetest and rarest being in the world ever created, someone who loves unconditionally.

The alteration of contemporary human attitudes and character by the modern industry is observable. The human sees himself as a very communicative being but, despite the power of language, man feels very often alone.
The human abandons himself and pursues the others. He enjoys fullness and is interested in observation, recording, and sharing. We are kind of happy that way.
