New revolutionary song by Darioush

Incredible new revolutionary song by Darioush! It's aimed at the young men and women of Iran who constitute 70% of the total 70 million population.


Forward this song to all on your mailing lists.

Darioush has already proven his patriotism and love for his motherland. This isn't the first patriotic/revolutionary song he's sung - the other most famous one is "Dobare Misazamat Vatan" ("Motherland I shall rebuild you"). Lets see where the other "artists" stand.

Lets see if the male artists really are MEN with some dignity and honor left in them. And for the ladies if they care for more than $$!

Powerful and inspiring, also gut wrenching.

At any rate, arya jan, I finally took your advice and started my own blog. Predominately but not exclusively, I'll be concentrating on plight of women in Islamic societies since I'm a woman.

Dear serendip (?)

Well done. If you don't mind we can link to each other. I've added you under my Iran-focused link section.
Best of luck!

SERENDIP said...

Thank you Aryamehr. I'm still figuring out how to do the linking part. Serendip is a Persian word:

ser·en·dip·i·ty (srn-dp-t)
n. pl. ser·en·dip·i·ties
1. The faculty of making fortunate discoveries by accident.
2. The fact or occurrence of such discoveries.
3. An instance of making such a discovery.


[From the characters in the Persian fairy tale The Three Princes of Serendip, who made such discoveries, from Persian Sarandp, Sri Lanka, from Arabic sarandb.]


seren·dipi·tous adj.
seren·dipi·tous·ly adv.
Word History: We are indebted to the English author Horace Walpole for the word serendipity, which he coined in one of the 3,000 or more letters on which his literary reputation primarily rests. In a letter of January 28, 1754, Walpole says that "this discovery, indeed, is almost of that kind which I call Serendipity, a very expressive word." Walpole formed the word on an old name for Sri Lanka, Serendip. He explained that this name was part of the title of "a silly fairy tale, called The Three Princes of Serendip: as their highnesses traveled, they were always making discoveries, by accidents and sagacity, of things which they were not in quest of...."

I'm a girl from Australia only now learning about Iran and it's history through two friends born in Iran. I couldn't believe how much of your ancient culture we have adopted, yet our society gives it no credit which i find disturbing. Even the word serendipity I knew...but had no idea it was persian. Keep telling the world about your wonderful history :) people should apreciate it, not just see it for the corruption in the government today. You should be proud to have such amazing heritage :) ... hope you didn't mind me butting in on your blog!

Hi Mel!

Nice of you to stop by here =)

Yes, there are a lot of "western" traditions/words etc which orginate from Ancient Persia (Iran), but with such a despicable and anti-Iranian government controlling our motherland today it is not easy to convince people other than what which they are exposed to every day from the main-stream-media which focuses on these Islamists who do not represent anything Iranian. But rest assured that the new generation of Iranians are fed up with the status-quo and the horrendous and tragic implications Islam has had in our country and we are facing up to it and dealing with it. We will make sure that our motherland secures her rightful place amongst modern and civilized nations where it belongs. Islamists nor Islam represent our country or culture and this historical misfortune will be rectified in the near future by true Iranians.

Once again thanks for your support and do make sure to stop by again whenever you've got time ;)
