The ancient land of Persia and the modern nation of Iran boast beautiful built and natural environments. Cities, farms, towns, and villages can be identified by the uniqueness of:
• fragrant concoctions and plants;
• musical sounds.
Iran’s and Persia’s architecture and textiles emphasize the special blueness of:
• bright skies;
• water bodies;
• wildflower petals.
Color gets a pivotal role in Iran’s and Persia’s Cinderella story. The fairy tale has such other Iranian and Persian plot-advancing injections as:
• alms for the misfortunate;
• dangerous hair pins;
• diamond anklets;
• fairy magic from a blue jug;
• fleet horses questioning river water potability;
• Nowruz celebrations for the New Year;
• silver-grey turtledove in windows.
The above-mentioned inputs ultimately make “The Persian Cinderella” uniquely unforgettable.
