love Tehran not only because it is our hometown, but because
we believe in her. This is not a political statement though
as our belief is in Tehran’s ever lasting beauties, her
status as being the face of Iranian arts and culture and the
amazing talents of her new generation. We do not consider political
ups and downs as they pass in time but the spirit of the city
always remains the same.
The beautiful snow covered peaks of Alborz Mountains, overlooking
Tehran from the north, her tall maple trees protecting us from
the hot summer sun, her many bazaars peacefully standing side
by side her modern landscape and so many other beauties only
found in the city which 12 million Iranians call “home”.
We regard Tehran as a great, lively capital city which has been
the representative of modern Iranian capability from science
and sports to arts and culture.
is the city that has generated and given the world a wide range
of brilliant people such as Azar Nafisi (novelist), Abbas Kiarostami
(director), Shirin Ebadi (human rights activist), Ali Karimi
(footballer), Shirin Neshat (visual artist), Marjane Satrapi
(cartoonist) and Deep Dish (musicians).
We are Tehran’s new generation and as we respect our past
culture and history, we also look forward to our bright futures
which we will build ourselves. We stand together in hard times
as well as good ones and we all have one thing in common for
sure; we love Tehran.
