March 20th is the first day of wonderful season, spring. Renewal of nature and freshness make us happier and is the best time for the fresh life. This special day has been celebrated by Persians for thousands of years specially from the Cyrus the Great period; he proclaimed the oldest known declaration of human rights in 520 BC. He respected the religions of the lands he conquered and because of his policies in Babylonia, he is referred by Jewish Bible as Messiah, the only non-Jew to be called so. He has been the personal hero to many people including Thomas Jefferson who was the principle author of Declaration of Independence (1776). Cyrus the Great was praised for freeing the slaves and humanitarian equality. From the Mediterranean Sea in the west to Indus river in the east, Cyrus created the largest empire the world has yet seen and ruled fairly.
