Intro - page 62
"Dad, are you for or against social classes?"
I chose this line from page 37. It is what Merji said after she was told that the love wasn't allowed between her maid and their neighbor from her dad. He said "You must understand that their love was impossible. Because in this country you must stay within you own social class." He could have lived because of social classes. Therefore I think he was for socials classes. I choose this picture because oil and vinegar weren't "allowed" to mix. They are like Mehri and the neighbor's son. People treated them like different things. They never couldn't mix in that time period.
"My god! He repeats what they tell him. He will understand later..."
This line is on page 46. This is Marji's mother's words. When your belief is wrong, you would go wrong way. Ramin was brain washed by people around. He was told that killing someone is, if the opponent's a communist, right behavior. He had been manipulated his belief system. Belief leads to behavior, and behavior leads to results. The reason I chose this picture for this line is because it involved to belief system. This elephant is held back not by puny rope but by its belief system. It tried to escape again and again but after all it couldn't. Then he learned that it can't be released. If there is not a rope, the elephant wouldn't move. Because he believe that he can't move. Perhaps, you might be bound, and your life is restricted by your framework of belief.
