“My main mistake was to have made an ancient people advance by forced marches toward independence, health, culture, affluence, comfort.”Perhaps, 27 years after his majesty's departure, many people including me believe that the Iranian people did not deserve the prosperity, happiness, secular education and the social freedoms under his reign.
The hard lesson of the damned Islamic Revolution of 1979 was to make every one of us to appreciate his majesty's hard work to modernize Persia, although it is a bit late now but his majesty's memories will remain among Iranian people for sure.
Too sad that many people helped overthrow the late Shah of Iran whose aim was to make Iran rise among the free nations of the world and introduce an independent nation to the world community.
Rest In Peace Your Majesty! Iran misses you more than ever!
