Many people in my country (Iran) are very proud of their valuable cultural and historical heritage. They feel nostalgic most of the time. Nostalgia mostly occurs when one finds out that one’s present life is no longer pleasant. Minds of people discover that their present situation is not as great as it used to be, therefore it might make them feel nostalgic in order to help them feel a little better. Instead of doing their best to changing their unpleasant present or to bring the golden ages back, many Iranian people keep visualizing their past and daydreaming about those precious heritages.
