Arash the Archer
Long times ago, longer than you can imagine, in the legendary land of Iran reigned a mighty king, called Manoochehr Pishdadi. On one of the hard days which Iran still recalls, a tough battle occurred between two powerful kingdoms of Iran and Turan, a battle whose taste is still fresh. Luck didn’t seem to be on Iran’s side Turan Army in Mazandaran region sieged Iran’s army as it went further it seemed as if any slightest hope dies with each passing second and minute. Afrasyab- Ferdowsi’s famous mythological character in Shahnameh led Turan.
The King Decision:
Iran’s king stepped on his pride and offered a comparison. It was an irenic peace offering, accepted by the opposing side. This acceptance didn’t obviously come from the heart, as it was a gesture of humiliation and belittling. However, one condition stood between the peace and Iran’s Army and it obviously looked like an impossible task to handle. This condition which evidently proposed in the continuance of Turan’s belittling and emasculation act would ask for an Iranian Hercules and champion to step up for a sacrifice. Things seemed to be on Turan’s side at the time. But if only they could’ve foreseen what was about to come they’d never proposed that devilish and unfair peace offering!
