Iranian screenwriter and filmmaker Masoud Jafari-Jozani’s new book ‘Pourya-Ye Vali’ has recently been released by Tehran-based Anapana Publications.
Printed in 680 pages, the book is a film script based on the life of Pahlavan Mahmoud  Kharazmi, well known as Pourya-ye Vali, an Iranian wrestling champion who passed away in 1322, ISNA reported.
He is famous for his chivalrous behavior and strength, and is still a paradigm for Zurkhaneh (traditional gym) athletes.
Pourya-ye Vali also wrote a book titled ‘Kanz ol-Haqayeq’ (literally meaning the treasure of truths) in Persian. A couplet from him which is still sung in Zurkhaneh is as follows: Learn modesty if you desire knowledge, a highland would never be irrigated by a river.
