The Little Black Fish Off to See the World

by Samad Behrangi

This delightful and moving story was written by Samad Behrangi (1939- 1968), a teacher in the rural villages in a province in Iran. His stort stories were about powerless people; poor and ignored, who had to survive in very difficult conditions which, for the most part, were a result of a political system that did not care for the people. These conditions were not so different from those existing in many countries in the world today, and in Africa in particular. The Little Black Fish of the story represents courage and the desire for knowledge, against age-old ignorance and fear - even if in the end a high price may have to be paid.
