Derinkuyu & Farohar

Re. your New Post – ‘Meaning of Farohar’ – I attach a paper I had e-published two years ago on the subject after receiving many e-mails from my e-friends about the History Channel video on:

‘Derinkuyu Underground City – is an ancient multilevel underground city in Derinkuyu district in Nevşehir Province, Turkey.’

It’s FYI since it is too long to publish in your regular Post (All Under One Roof).
I think that in this day & age of IT – Parsi YGen. should be enlightened with true historical facts of our history instead of just regurgitating old ‘Bap-Dada’ myths & beliefs of our Faith.
On page 8 of the paper I have posted my views as ‘End Notes’ for the reader to reflect & consider in this matter.
Please do forward it to the person or group that sent the pic. ‘The Meaning of Faravahar or The Holy Guardian Angel’ that was posted in your 21 June 2014 PIZ-AUOR.
Edul Kanga.

Dhansak in the Night

To the tune of ‘Strangers in the Night’
Dhansak in the night
And sali boti
Daru pi ne tight
Kolmi motti motti
Everything’s all right

When there’s dhansak in the night

Bhida per eedu
Nashta per dahi sev

And elchi keru
Everything’s all right, dikra
When there’s dhansak in the ni-i-i-i-i-ght

Apro Parsi peg
With a nice chicken leg
Papata ma gosh
And some Irani oosh
Masoor pau is nice
With doodhi-gosh and rice

Charvelu eedu
Maakhan ma kidhu
Daru pi ne tight
When there’s dhansak in the night
Us bawajis feel all ri-i-i-i-ight
