Last weekend, finally summer here in Orange County, I went to see The 14th Annual Persian Festival of Autumn Mehregan 2010 in Irvine, California, this event is organized by Network of Iranian American Professionals of Orange County. The Mehregan Festival is an ancient Persian Fest which is dedicated to Mehr (or Mithra) the goddess and symbol of light, friendship, faith, love and kindness. This years theme was dedicated to the great Iranian poet Ferdowsi in celebration of his masterpiece Shahnameh, the epics of kings. The event is located at the Lakeside Lagoon Park, Irvine Center. It is an incredible festival full of art, food, celebrations, old iranian martial arts, traditional music and dance, persian craft and culture.







Almost at the end the high light happened in meeting this  beautiful, talented writer and artist  Zohreh Ghahremani   Her latest  book  ” Sky of Red Poppies” had just been published 2 days ago, hot of the press. She will be touring for book readings in different states, bringing along her “companion” ,a type writer.

  1. Nabard is the traditional Persian martial practice. The application of Nabard as a communication of martial tactics evolved through the society’s needs and cultural changes into an expression of traditional martial customs. The expressions of fighting skills and practices are clearly expressed in the movements. Nabard is still exhibited in an expression of fighting dance performed in suburbs throughout Persia. By applying the principals of Nabard to a strategy of survival, Safakhoo designed a martial art system known as Nabard, the Persian art of combat.
