Hi, Hilal!:

I visited the official 's Farah's site and I think it is excellent. I know it since some time ago. I wrote to Farah and she answered my in a kind letter. The Empress is a very warm and gentle lady.

I always liked the Iran family, even if I have no persian blood. However, I have some little connections to this beatiful country. My great-great-grandpa was Argentinian Militar Ambassador in Teheran at the Qajar times, and Shahanshah's Nasser-es-Din condecorated him. And much more close in time, Empress Farah Diba and Shah Mohammed Reza Pahlavi visited my father's city at Patagonia, Comodoro Rivadavia. This city is know for her petroleum activities, so they went there. My father knew them and liked both them a lot. He said that Farah was beatiful, and very gentle. My father's sign is under Shah's name at the guest book of the Club Huergo Association, where the Shah's had a little reception. I wrote to Farah about it...and she remembered it! How a lady...

Vanesa.

I saw many pics with the Imperial family celebrating the Iranian Noorooz...But I don't know much about this celebration. Someone knows how Noorooz is celebrated (or was celebrated) in Iran? I read somewhere that Islamic Republic forbade Noorooz. Is it the true? And if it is ...why?

Vanesa.

Dear Vanesa, Norooz mean a new day in Persian and is the biggest holiday in Iran and some part neighbour countries.
The Islamic government tried in the beginning of their power to prevent Iranians/Persian to celebrate Norooz, because Norooz is not a Islamic holiday and has its root in the ancient Persia, Norooz is a Zoroastrian holiday, the religion of ancient Persia and today the Zoroaster’s are a minority in Iran. The Islamic republic did not succeed in their attempt to prevent Iranians to celebrate Norooz.
During Mohammad Reza shah’s time the government changed the solar calendar, based on pre-Islamic systems improved in 11th century during the reign of the Seljuq King, Malak Shah, to the Iranian-imperial calendar (shahanshahi) which goes back to the first Imperial family who ruled the whole ancient Persia under their crown the Achaemeniad family and Cyrus the great to the Pahlavi´s, so this year which changes at the first day of Norooz is 2565 shahanshahi, Iranian-imperial years, but after the establishment of the Islamic republic the new government changed the year back to the old system, the solar system, so this year is 1385 khorshidi, sun years, this khorshidi year shows us that it has been 1385 year now that prophet Muhammed did take his journey from Medina to Mecca.

Thank you, Aryan! Very kind from you. I appreciate all the info very much.

Now, I understand much better what happens with "Norooz". We also have these kind of celebrations in Argentina. They comes from Europe, from a pre-christian background, even if we are 98% Christians. The Catholic Church (most of Argentinians belongs to the Catholic Faith, like me ) and the Lutheran and Reformed Churches don't really cares about this. They know that we won't lost our faith for performing these ancient traditions. They have more to do with our patriotic past than with religion. It's has to do with our cultural roots.

We have a celebration where we must jump over the fire, like Iranians do. It's called "The Saint-Jean Celebration", but really it has nothing to do with Saint-Jean. Catholic changed its name to it but it is a pre-Christian celebration. Many people walks over the fire as well...It's a little frightening.

I read in a book about Nasser- es Din (a Qajar ruler) travel to Europe, that he saccriffied sheeps and muttons every sunrise and that he performed Norooz as well. However, he was a devote Shi'a...I think it is stupid to try to supprime these ancient celebrations. People will never give up with their traditions. And much less the people of Iran who is so especial and have the word JUSTICE very deep written into their hearts.

Vanesa.

Farah Dibah, former empress of Iran (L) and Mrs Pinault are seen at the inuagural of the celebrated Palazzo Grassi, bought and renovated by Francois Pinault to house his personal contemporary art collection, 29 April 2006 in Venice. The 18th century Grand Canal palazzo, formerly the international exhbition center of Gianni Agnelli, founder of Fiat, was acquired in 2005 by Pinault for 29 million euros. The Pinault collection is considered as one of the five best private contemporary art collections in the world.

Thank you for the collage, Aryan, it's really beatiful and well done. I'm angry to myself for I can't do these things at my PC...

Farah's pic are always great! I do not understand how could be people saying that she was not considered as a beatiful woman among iranians. Certainly, Fawzia (maybe my favorite ) and Soraya had more of classical beauties than her, but Farah has a lot of life in her face, and is also very fashionable and stylish. And, more importan of all this. she was the right wife the Shah needed to his White Revolution. A real modern Empress for a modern governement project.

Vanesa.

Dear Vanesa, I do not know wear you have heard that HIM Empress Farah was not considered as a beautiful woman among iranians, I do not believe that rumour is right, Iranians has always admired their empress for her taste, style, fashion, beauty, her kindness, loyalty to the people and the shah, her way to be their for the people of all classes, she was/is not only the empress of Iran she was/is the empress of the people and one of the people. The people have always loved her and after the exile she have became the symbol of unity, hope, freedom, and a free Iran for many of Iranians, many Iranians are proud over her that she still presents Iran in a dignified way in different occasions, royal weddings, parties etc……
As you mention it she was/is a modern empress for a modern Iran.

Aryan

Fantastic collage, Aryan! A great look at some of the utterly stunning Iranian jewels, and Farah always wears them so beautifully. A lovely look at a lovely lady.:)

I heard the rumor of her not being considered beatiful among iranians...here, in the Royalforums. I do not remember the name of the member who wrote this, I must go check out the info , but it was a comment of a person who assured the Iranians hated the Pahlavies and wouldn't want them to return. However, I share your opinon about Farah. I know she is not only a beatiful woman, but an intelligent Shahbanu.

Vanesa.
