A Short Biography.... And Why Short?
In my idea ,writing about one’s merits in an autobiography, is useful as long as the writer dares to unveil any fact of his life in detail without any politics. but that s a pity we live in a country where this revelation is not possible even after the death of an artist, due to various cultural, social, moral reasons which may originate from our ancient traditions.so therefore, in this brief, I settle for mentioning those corners of my life that wouldn’t hurt anyone, either a stranger or a friend, and I hope that there comes a day, whether me alive or dead, that my autobiography could be published without any omissions or auto- censorship.
A biography full of dreams and nightmares, failures and successes, love and separation, the sufferings and joys, friendships and Dshmnkamy and homesickness and loneliness is ....
But I tell you about a half century ago, in the neighborhood of Tehran's Nezamabad in the house paternal grandmother,i was born in a family of semi-traditional. Khansari descent from father and from my mother's Azeri roots.
During childhood and adolescence, football, cinema and television, and books, the four sides of the square of the time I passed it. I attend football matches up to those youth and adults levels .
I used to go to cinema secretly because of parental oppostion and sometimes i was enjoy watching two movies with one ticket. Long time we didnt have TV at home and i used to watch it by climbing light bulb of neighbors. --Hassan Fathi The Postman Doesn’t Knock Three Times - Postchi se bar dar nemizanad
