This feature is all about the art of glassware, its history, evolution and today’s modern techniques. We’ll focus on decorative objects made with direct heating and see from up close how they’re made. Hoda Lezgee tells us more.

Riding trail bikes is a great form of excessive sport yet performing stunts on them is adventurous and can be dangerous.  In Tehran, a couple of young men are not only professional at performing exciting feats on trail bikes, but they are also young Iranian daredevil.

"Civil registration started in the 19th century in the world. While Iran was going through modernization and renovation, the need for identifying foreigners, forming a permanent army, and obtaining taxes turned the formation of a civil registration administration as a priority. Therefore, in December 1918, Iran ratified the civil registration law by issuing the first birth certificate for a girl named Fatemeh Irani in Tehran."

In this feature we focus mainly on the history of civil registration in Iran while touring the civil registration museum which is a Qajari house and at the end we briefly mention the modern day system.

Tehraniha house is an ancient house in the city of Yazd. Now it has been changed to a museum hotel named Fahadan, attracting many tourists yearly. The structure is over 150 years old and belongs to the Qajar era.
