    TEHRAN – A meeting on Urdu language and literature, which was organized by the Persian literary monthly Bokhara in Tehran on Sunday evening, brought reconciliation, on the surface at least, between the ambassadors of India and Pakistan, despite the cold war dominating political relations between the two countries.
     
    Pakistani Ambassador Noor Mohammad Jadmani and Indian Ambassador Shri D.P. Srivastava sat next to each other during the session held at the Mahmud Afshar Foundation.
     
    Bokhara director Ali Dehbahsi welcomed the Persian and Urdu literature scholars and students, and invited the Indian ambassador to make the opening speech.
     
    However, Shri D.P. Srivastava asked the Pakistani ambassador to begin the ceremony with his words.
     
    Expressing his thanks to Shri D.P. Srivastava and Dehbashi, Noor Mohammad Jadmani expressed his appreciation of the scholars that have been teaching the Urdu language at the University of Tehran for the past 23 years.
     
    The Urdu language is the language of Pakistan, he said, adding, Urdu is one of the most widely spoken languages in the world. Specifically, it ranks third after Chinese and English.
     
    He mentioned that Urdu has been spoken since the 16th century and the Persian language has had a significant role, due to its structure, in the promotion of Urdu, which is a living international language.
     
    The Indian ambassador also made a brief speech and said that Urdu is also spoken in his hometown (Lucknow), and although Urdu is the national language of Pakistan, it is also spoken in India; it is one of the six main languages of India.
     
    He called it a great honor that Urdu is the shared language of India and Pakistan.
     
    Scholars Ali Bayat and Vafa Yazdanmanesh also presented their lectures on Urdu language. 
     
    The Iranian Avaye-Zamin Ensemble, conducted by Arash Aryan and accompanied by Indian tabla player Darshan Anand, gave a performance as the closing program of the event.

    TEHRAN -- An Iranian group plans to stage a solo performance entitled “Justice Oratorio” based on the Nahj-ul-Balagha of Imam Ali (AS) in Tehran.
     
    Oratorio is an extended musical composition with a text more or less dramatic in character and usually based upon a religious theme, for solo voices, chorus, and orchestra, and performed without action, costume, or scenery.
     
    “Justice Oratorio” will be performed next week at Vahdat Hall by Asghar Hemmat, one of the leading actors of “Imam Ali (AS)”, Iranian director Davud Mirbaqeri’s acclaimed TV series about the imamate of Ali (AS) and the events leading to his martyrdom.
     
    Eighty-five choral singers and an orchestra composed of 25 musicians will collaborate in the performance, which will be directed by Babak Mehri. In addition, a group of 15 actors led by Yaser Khaseb will perform mime during the oratorio.
     
    “The idea for performing the oratorio came when I saw [Polish director] Wlodzimierz Staniewski stage a performance based on philosophical discourses from Herodotus at the Fajr theater festival [in Tehran this year in January],” Mehri said in a press conference on Monday.
     
    “Herodotus doesn’t have a good reputation among Iranians due to his biased attitudes against Iranians. I became sad at that time when I saw that the discourses of Herodotus were narrated for the audience instead of the sermons of our luminaries,” he added.
     
    “Afterwards, I decided to stage an oratorio based on discourses from Imam Ali (AS), whose martyrdom and the last days of his life have only been highlighted in the country and people have no proper understanding of his thoughts,” Mehri stated.
     
    Hemmat also attended the press conference.
     
    “The performance aims to convey the discourses of Imam Ali (AS) to people,” Hemmat said and added, “Maybe it will do something new and people get to know Imam Ali (AS) as he seems to be.”
     
    “I hope the world see that, beside us, there is a man, whose words are still new after many years,” he stated.
     
    “Justice Oratorio”, which will be performed from October 26 to November 1, is based on the Nahj-ul-Balagha, the most famous collection of sermons, letters and narrations from Imam Ali (AS).

    Baharsu raqs-e bismil bood shab jaay ki man boodam.

    tossing about in agony.)

    (There was a nymph-like beloved with cypress-like form
    and tulip-like face,)
     
    Sarapa aafat-e dil bood shab jaay ki man boodam.
    (Ruthlessly playing havoc with the hearts of the lovers.)
     
    Khuda khud meer-e majlis bood andar laamakan Khusrow;
    (God himself was the master of ceremonies in that heavenly court,)
     
    Muhammad shamm-e mehfil bood shab jaay ki man boodam.
    (oh Khusrow, where [the face of] Prophet Muhammad too was shedding light like a candle.)
