The cow year is expired !

by Masoud Ahmadpoor March. 05, 2010 9215 views

The current year in Iran (21 March 2009 – 20 March 2010 ) on solar hegri calendar is 1388 and according a rule remained from Mongols and Turks empire ages in persian culture , this year is named as " Cow Year " !
Turk people name each year by the name of one of twelve animals: Mouse, Cow, Leopard, Rabbit, Alligator, Snake, Horse, Sheep, Monkey, Hen, Dog and Pig. These names repeat once in each twenty years. They believe that each person born in specified year has common attributes and manner in his/her life!

I born in cow year and it was full of motivation and excitement for me this year – I had two trip for pilgrimage to abroad (Suadi Arabia & Iraq) and I found some friends that to be with them is more worthy than to have a large amount of gold!
I was a member of Iranian green movement for obtaining freedom and social rights this year too!

"Cow Year“ is expired by next two weeks and it is teared as soon as by ”Leopard Year"!
I hope this leopard tears the chest of injustice in my society next year!
