Iranian Al Pacino

Welcome to my smoke parlor!

I was just peeping inside a shop to see the colorful waterpipe-smoke-giving-ancient machine, commonly called Hookah.

It was an ancient shop full of these hookahs and pipes and the owner was an amazing jolly good Iranian uncle named Ali Yezdi. I was very attracted towards his charming persona and then started a wonderful journey of conversation.

First, he told us about why his surname is like that. Actually, his ancestors came from a place called Yazd in Iran and they settled in India; long time ago.

Smoking a Hookah is nothing like smoking a cigarette. Cigarettes are for people on the run, Hookah is for Shaukeen people. It gives you time and a class.

Hookah, also called a water-pipe was first made in Iran out of a coconut, later the Arabs spread it. It’s a single or multi-stemmed—often glass-based—water pipe device for smoking. It operates by water filtration and indirect heat. It can be used for smoking herbal fruits, there are a lot of different flavors. This was a completely new information to me and I was thrilled. Th best part was that his shop doesn’t have a name-board on top.

I don’t need a name-board.

This man surely took my breath away with his enticing way of talking with some Persian phrases and a very unique style of something like a Al Pacino type talking. He seemed quite from a wealthy family but nevertheless, for me he was an impressive man.
