Where is the life we have lost in living?
Where is the wisdom we have lost in knowledge?
Where is the knowledge we have lost in information?
- T.S. Eliot
Greetings to you all,
Believe me I cannot find words adequate enough to tell you how happy I am to be here in Canada once again and especially in my new capacity: Adjunct Professor at one of the oldest and most respected universities, namely, Dalhousie. It is always a very special joy for me to return to Canada. It is to Canada that my wife and I first came all those years ago in the 1970s. It was in Canada that I got my first two degrees in economics. I never forget the joyous day in 1980 that my wife and I became naturalised Canadian Citizens. It is to Canada that many my close relatives came to after the Revolution in Iran. It is in Canada that all have found happiness, joy, success and well-being. To Canada, I own great thanks.
