I am overjoyed by hearing UNESCO's recognition of naghghali as a world heritage. It is a recognition long over due. I have always admired this art and thought of it as a perfect example of performing art.

I was and still am in love with Naghaali act. Shahnameh and naghaali should be viewed as a invaluable gift given to us by our parents and grandparents and must be protected and preserved

One more example, non-Iranians value what Iranians have.  Iranians should be the first ones to protect and preserve their heritage.
