to the audience - " upon my travel, I Jumped over the wall of faith, culture, language
and went in the courtyard of the hearts. I realized that human bodies are like colored
glass containers and souls are like water. As a result the water appears of different colors inside the glass. Human lives are only one color hidden in different color of culture, faith and language. This book has both pain and joy. Pain of horrifying Apartheid and joy of serenity of Peru". She recited her poems at the request of the audience. Her presentation was very well received. Parvin was very touched and said, how fortunate she is to be honoured at this historical world renowned Moscow State University of Russia and thanked all the participants and the organizers
and in particular to Professor Dr. Ludmila Vasilyeva for this honour.  Prints of Parvin's paintings were displayed and were observed with great interest. The Russian member parliament, Mr. Genady Avdeev along with his wife Ludmila Avdeeva were among the guests  present on this occasion.
