This is a splendid short story Mr. Rashidi.
Eshart Khanum of your story kind of reminded me of the character of 'Talla' in Parisa Reza's "The Gardens of Consolations," a traditional woman, originally from the countryside, lost in the ebb and flow of the modern life.
Thank you for sharing.

Many thanks for your kind comments and the comparison. I have read Reza's book in original French which is much more poetic than the English translation!

Parisa Reza's novel "The Gardens of Consolation" It's a testament to the recently emerged Iranian Diaspora Literature. This is a type of literature produced in the past few decades by first or second generation Iranians living abroad, published in European languages,..
Ms. Reza's novel, as you mentioned, was translated from French. Wonder if her novel has been translated into Persian?
Even the English translations has its own poetic, magical moments. Especially when she inserts Persian idioms and vernacular, like the story of "Yakhchaal."
Your story also has a healthy dose as well, glossary is a good idea.
