Golnar Malek  has a particular interest in the Creative Milieux, both within the scope of life and fiction. Taking after her mothers fascinations by the epic of the Shahnameh she is particularly interested in its powerful people . They love and devote themselves to self salvation and the salvation of others (will it be righteous  or not ) within the particular framework. per say, in a  public domain where people from different walks of life meet.
