Bam, Iran: The Little Gardens of Sorrow

By Syma Sayyah, Tehran

I felt almost an urge to go Bam's cemetery during my recent visit to this town which was devastated by a deadly quake in December 2003.

I went there late Friday afternoon when there was hardly anybody there. There were some workers there and a few visitors who had come to pay their respects to their lost ones. What touched me so this time, was the little patches of flowers and greens that were put up on the top of some of the tombs, I called them Baghche-Haye Ghamm - the little gardens of Sorrow.
