“1st story”

A story by Laleh Chini:

I remember there was an old ruined mansion in Bushehr-Iran where people could pay a little amount to go inside. We visited the wrecked house a few times in my childhood. The story behind it was so sad but more importantly, a life lesson which was probably why my parents took us to the palace several times.

roof-540835_960_720The story goes as the owner was a very rich merchant who was a profligate spender to show off how wealthy he was. People used to say he lit his cigars with burning bills instead of matches in front of others and when big politicians came to Bushehr from the Capital Tehran, he lit candles with bills to show how powerful and rich he was.burning-money-2113914_960_720 He used to serve tea in gold teacups and eat in silver plates and dishes. He was never friendly with anyone and found it disgraceful to talk to the poor.pots-186553_960_720

Eventually, he lost everything, went bankrupt and died without a penny to leave for his children. The poor people who now lived in the mansion with no windows or doors and partially no roof and walls were his grandchildren who owned the land. They lived very impoverish lives.person-1172018_960_720 They survived with general labors and the money people paid to see the ruined house. They never talked to anyone, nor answered any questions.  It was obvious that they were so ashamed of their grandfather’s past.

My father said that no one ever offered them any jobs because their grandfather was so cruel to the town, and never respected anyone as he saw himself as a superior.

  9. Wow, I found this really profound and moving. You have a way of writing that brings the story alive, and what a story you wrote about the merchant and his grandchildren. So many good wishes to them all, and their learning and growth. And, I am so glad that we connected on WordPress. Blessings to you Laleh.

  14. It is a bit unfair that the grandchildren, great-grandchildren, fell against human disapproval for what kind of a person their grandfather was. Maybe they are good people worth giving them a helping hand. Forgiveness makes us as light as a butterfly.

    yet I never found any interesting article like yours.
    It’s pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all web owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the web will be
    a lot more useful than ever before.
