This my friend, is IRAN!

in OCD10 days ago

I'm sure every one of you have heard the name of Iran. Though I have a question to ask from y'all...

What's the first image that comes to your head when you hear the name of Iran?!

Let that sink for a bit ...

You see, the media has made that picture in your head! We all know what picture I'm talking about.

They have shown you Iran to be a country with no beauty. They've fed you the fear with the pictures news that have almost no connection to what the real Iran and Iranians are.

There's so much people around the world do not know about my country.

One time , a girl form another country, asked me where I'm from and I told her that I'm from Iran. You know what her response was? With her drunk voice she said '' so you are terrorist?!''

She's not to be blamed here at all. She just said whatever she knew and had heard form the news and media.

Though there are many ones, who know all about the way news are controlling the minds of people. But, still they do not have a real good picture and image to displace that negative and fearful picture with.

All I want to say here, is that Iran is not what you see in the news! Iran is not a place to fear for your life in.

Iranians, are people just like you. There is good and bad everywhere you put your foot on this planet. So you cannot generalize a nation by just watching directed news.

I'm putting this post together to beg your attention. So maybe we can start having positive thoughts and images when the topic of Iran comes up. 🙂 💚

Here are the some of the pictures from the great country of Iran:

Thank you very much! I very much appreciate your support! :) <3

You're most welcome! You've got a beautiful country... :)

You are very kind! :) <3

God bless you for this brother. The media always want to paint a terrible picture of places based on stereotypes but as a Nigerian who has also struggled with people having false information about me(they say we are all scammers), I'm happy to see this.

Iran looks like a lovely place I must say. They never talk about these parts.

This is exactly the point of this post brother! People need to know that generalizations like that, are nothing but illusions.

Thank you for your kind words. I truly appreciate it man! <3

Media does influence our perception of places. A lot feature Iran as a gloomy place. Thanks @mamalikh13 for showing us the true face of Iran. 😀

walang anoman bes! Salamat sa suporta! ;)

I think it's time for people to know and see the real Iran. :) <3

Omg! Iran is so beautiful! I watched lots of travel videos on Iran and now really curious to visit once.

You should definitely check it out! :)

I'd be happy to help. <3

What a great collection of photos to represent your country! Especially first one, that place looks incredible!

I have never met anyone from Iran so through your posts, I got to know a lot about your country. Media definitely does represent many countries in a bad way, I think Serbia is also one of them.

There is good and bad everywhere you put your foot on this planet.

This is so true!

True! Many countries are in a bad light because of misleading news!

I'm glad you liked it dear. :) <3

Lovely pictures!

Beautiful people, stunning place and absolutely great food. I have been in Iran 3x for my visa exit and I love Iran.

Diba?! ganda nmn sa Iran eh! :)

Miss ko na sa pinas din. Sana balik na ako soon.

Salamat sa Suporta! <3

Many forget that there is a difference between a government and the people under that government. For the most part, people are largely the same, they want to live a life of peace and well being.

Great pics btw :)

I appreciate brother! :) <3

You see, there's no there channel for them to look for the truth. So, even if they don't want it, the effect is going to find a way in into their minds.

Though, things are changing and people are hearing each other's words now thanks to technology and decentralization of block chain.

It happens within nations, so it is amplified across nations. I am fortunate to have been raised in a multicultural family with a a global perspective that values humans.

True man! I had to travel and stay in another country to just gain a grasp on what's going on. Because I just didn't know this before I get out of Iran.

Yes. Its not good to judge a book by its cover. Get to the source of every news before judging. Those are beautiful pictures. I feel like getting a visa and coming over now.😃😃

Hopefully you can visit right after this pandemic is over! ;) <3

Woooow....mamalikh is hosting me in Iran💃🙌💃. I'm happy.

Why not man! I can show you around. :)

Thanks man. You are a good man🖒

What's the first image that comes to your head when you hear the name of Iran?!

Persian traders history. In school I learned several theories about how Islam came to Indonesia and some theories mentioned these traders. Majority of Indonesian students learn about this but they probably know more about Persia than Iran.

Well basically Persia is the old name of Iran. :)

It's cool to know that they teach about Persians in your school! <3

Yeah because they contribute in shaping Indonesian's belief system which lasted until today. They did well with the trading and spreading the belief system.

Apparently you are right! :)

There is good and bad everywhere you put your foot on this planet.

Iran: Good
Nima: Bad

Lol.

Hahahahaha! That is the best way to put it brother. :D

I found this footage of you attitude-adjusting Nima.

HAHAHAHAHA!!! Man! :D

He actually is very interested to meet you bro! LOL

I think I need to meet the infamous Nima someday...If he kills me though...I'll kill him! Lol.

Beautiful post! I think that in general, in Venezuela we have a positive image of Iran, although there are always people who stigmatize others because of what they see in the media without stopping to analyze or investigate a bit.

That is very true! It's a good thing to know that a positive vibe is being had about Iran and Iranians in Venezuela! :) <3
