Tehran

زرد خُفته

درگوشه کنار این کلانشهر، پرآشوب و مدام درحال تغییر، که به نامِ توسعه کالبد تاریخی‌.ش را شخم می‌.زند، از بین می‌.برد، آن را تکه‌. تکه می‌.کند و چیزی بر جای نمی‌.گذارد جز مخلوقی عجیب ، معدودی درخت سرک کشیده‌.اند .

درختانی اغلب از نوع کاج که انگار در سایه‌.ی خود چیزی را پنهان کرده ‌.و از آن محافظت می‌.کنند. آن ‌.ها پاسدار گذشته‌.اند‌.، پاسدار حجم ‌.هایی در قلمرو زمان از دست رفته، زمانی که هنر در چینش و بالا رفتن جزیی‌.ترین آجر‌.ها نیز رعایت می ‌.شد .آجرهای زرد، خفته در دیوارهای ساکت نا‌.مسکون. کاج ‌.ها نشان اصلی این خانه‌.ها هستند. آن‌.ها از دور خبرت می‌.کنند که سازه ای را دوره کرده و در پناه گرفته‌.اند، سازه‌.ای خُفته .

حجم هائی از نفس افتاده اما زیبا .که هویت دارند.که زنده‌.اند. صدایی از آن‌.ها به گوش می‌.رسد. صدای زردکمرنگ. صدای کلاغ‌.ها وگنجشکان، صدای رعدوبرق و شُره‌.های بی‌.امان باران، صدای بوق‌.های متوالی چند نسل اتومبیل و بلدوزر‌.ها، صدای   اره برقی‌.ها و هجمه خشمگین آهن و سیمان که نزدیک ونزدیک ‌.ترمی‌.شوند ...

ساسان ابری - زمستان ۹۲

The Dormant Yellow

]In the hidden corners of this turbulent and ever changing city that claws and tears it’s own historic flesh asunder to devour it in the name of progress, leaving nothing but a monstrous creature, a few trees still stand tall.

Trees, often pines, that hide something in their shadows as if to protect it. They are guardians of the past; guardians of spaces in the territory of a lost time when there was still art in laying brick upon another brick. Yellow bricks dormant in silent uninhabited walls. The pines are the main emblem of these houses. They herald from afar that they are surrounding and watching over a building that has long gone to sleep.

Barely breathing, yet still beautiful, with a living identity. You can still hear their sound, the sound of pale yellow. The sound of crows and sparrows, the sound of lightening and relentless rain, the sound of the incessant honking of generations of cars and bulldozers
and the battle cry of electrical saws and the thunder of iron and concrete that draws ever closer.
Sasan Abri.

More About Tehran

Overview and HistoryTehran is the capital of Iran and the largest city in the Middle East, with a population of fifteen million people living under the peaks of the Alborz mountain range.Although archaeological evidence places human activity around Tehran back into the years 6000BC, the city was not mentioned in any writings until much later, in the thirteenth century. It's a relatively new city by Iranian standards.But Tehran was a well-known village in the ninth century. It grew rapidly when its neighboring city, Rhages, was destroyed by Mongolian raiders. Many people fled to Tehran.In the seventeenth century Tehran became home to the rulers of the Safavid Dynasty. This is the period when the wall around the city was first constructed. Tehran became the capital of Iran in 1795 and amazingly fast growth followed over the next two hundred years.The recent history of Tehran saw construction of apartment complexes and wide avenues in place of the old Persian gardens, to the detriment of the city's cultural history.The city at present is laid out in two general parts. Northern Tehran is more cosmopolitan and expensive, southern Tehran is cheaper and gets the name "downtown."Getting ThereMehrabad airport is the original one which is currently in the process of being replaced by Imam Khomeini International Airport. The new one is farther away from the city but it now receives all the international traffic, so allow an extra hour to get there or back.TransportationTehran driving can be a wild free-for-all like some South American cities, so get ready for shared taxis, confusing bus routes and a brand new shiny metro system to make it all better. To be fair, there is a great highway system here.The metro has four lines, tickets cost 2000IR, and they have segregated cars. The women-only carriages are the last two at the end, FYI.Taxis come in two flavors, shared and private. Private taxis are more expensive but easier to manage for the visiting traveler. Tehran has a mean rush hour starting at seven AM and lasting until 8PM in its evening version. Solution? Motorcycle taxis! They cut through the traffic and any spare nerves you might have left.People and CultureMore than sixty percent of Tehranis were born outside of the city, making it as ethnically and linguistically diverse as the country itself. Tehran is the most secular and liberal city in Iran and as such it attracts students from all over the country.Things to do, RecommendationsTake the metro to the Tehran Bazaar at the stop "Panzda Gordad". There you can find anything and everything -- shoes, clothes, food, gold, machines and more. Just for the sight of it alone you should take a trip there.If you like being outside, go to Darband and drink tea in a traditional setting. Tehranis love a good picnic and there are plenty of parks to enjoy. Try Mellat park on a friday (fridays are public holidays), or maybe Park Daneshjou, Saaii or Jamshidieh.Remember to go upstairs and have a look around, always always always! The Azadi Tower should fit the bill; it was constructed to commemorate the 2500th anniversary of the Persian Empire.Tehran is also full of museums such as:the Contemporary Art Museumthe Abghine Musuem (glass works)the 19th century Golestan Royal Palace museumthe museum of carpets (!!!)Reza Abbasi Museum of extraordinary miniaturesand most stunning of all,the Crown Jewels Museum which holds the largest pink diamond in the world and many other jaw-dropping jewels.Text by Steve Smith.
