Iran is a country of ironies. Like most promises made in politics and during revolutions, the Islamic Revolution of 1979 has also failed to fulfill its promises.
The following picture is a great example of everyday ironies that show the contrast between the promises made and the outcomes achieved of this revolution that had promised to take the hands of the poor and less privileged and offer them a better life.
Two fruit vendors leaning against their worn-out truck are waiting for costumers. A quote from Ayatollah Khomeini, the revolution's leader, on the side of the truck reads “Our nation did not revolt for the sake of melons!”
Isn't it ironic that the only thing the revolution has left them- to barely make ends meet- is a truck-load of unsold melons?
