Another book with this same title!

Dear Abarmard,

It is just a minor problem. Don't get discouraged!

There is also Dehkhoda's Charand o Parand that is the famous one, but I think these days, there is no rule for the exclusivity of the title of a book. So please clean up the dust and go for it! Azarin

She is one of my father-in-law’s old friends and I met her in Paris a long time ago. She was smart, funny, full of energy and on top of that gorgeous. Such an inspiring force! Full of passion and life...I really enjoyed the hour we spent (even if I barely said a word!)
