Breaking the ban in Iran

BBC: The latest novel by Colombian writer Gabriel Garcia Marquez has been banned in Iran - but only after censors noticed its title had been sanitised. The book, Memories of My Melancholy Whores, was published in Farsi as Memories of My Melancholy Sweethearts. The first edition of 5,000 had sold out before the authorities realised. The novel tells the story of a man who wants to mark his 90th birthday by sleeping with a 14-year-old virgin in a brothel and ends up falling in love>>>

I loved the poem by Sher and it is so true. That makes life worth leaving. Without hope we are nothing. Better days will come back some day.
