Jafar Panahi Sentenced to 6 Years in Jail, 20 Years of Silence
20th Dec 2010
Shocking and terrible news from Tehran today. Farideh Gheirat, a lawyer representing several of the politicians, journalists and artists detained during the protests that immediately followed the disputed 2009 Iranian presidential election, has told the ISNA news agency (as reported by Reuters and the AFP) that Jafar Panahi has been sentenced to six years in jail and that his "social rights," including "making movies, writing scripts, foreign travel and giving interviews to domestic and foreign media, have been taken away for 20 years."

voice from here will be heard there
WE have to react at the sentences handed out to filmmaker Jafar Panahi. World is getting so small that our voice from here will be heard there.

ആദ്യ സ്പര്‍ശം പോലെ
മഴ എന്‍ നെറുകയില്‍ ചുംബിച്ചു
ആദ്യ സുരതം പോലെ
മഴയില്‍ നനഞ്ഞു ഞാന്‍ നിന്നു
നീ മഴ ...
തോരാമഴ ...
