There is no man in this city..

(I took this photo with my cell phone , too bad I lost my other camera , I could take it much better than this ... )

In this city , taxi , bus , subway , street , school , hospital , everywhere you see a crowd ! and a heavy traffic .
I was walking into the subway , and listening to a Kurdish song by Hesen Derzî , I was walking slowly and looking at people and smiling to them .

the music and and the voice of Hesen Derzî was so mysterious , it was like he was singing from another world and sending his music to our world ... and a part of the poem really touched my heart :

Kesî têda nîe em şare bêto
which means there is nobody in this city ...
yep , the poem really touched my heart , I was looking at the crowd who were pushing each other in the subway , but I felt there was nobody in the city...

Actually , my feeling is not something new , I am saying what Diogenes (Greek philosopher) had said thousands of years ago.
one day Diogenes was
searching in the city with a light in his hand (during the day) , people asked him , "what are you searching for ? "
and he answered "I am searching for a man ! there is no real man in this city ."

Rumi the Persian also repeated
Diogenes' story :

دی شیخ با چرا غ همی گشت گرد شهر

کز دیو و دد ملولم و انسانم آرزوست
(which means , the Sheykh was searching around the city with a light in hand, saying "I am sick of Div and Evils , I want Human ")

It is interesting that Rumi had known
Diogenes at that time , because in the year 2007 , with internet and all these things , I hardly knew who Diogen was but Rumi knew him , hundreds years ago , I wonder what his source of information was .

so yep . the population of Tehran is 15 million but believe me for me there is nobody in this city !
