Post my divorce, I obtained an MBA from SUNY at Buffalo, in Financial Institutions & Markets. I own a Financial Planning Practice (as a franchisee with a large Broker Dealer). I have been in the business since 1997.
In 2002, I was the Democratic Party candidate for Congress in NY26CD. (www.narimanforcongress.org). In 2004, I was one of 25 winners in C-span's 25th. Anniversary Contest.
I have written extensively on Social security and Federal Budget issues - both as a columnist for www.yellowtimes.org (now defunct) - and sent in papers to White House and Commissions. I have a petition to Stop Congress from looting our Trust Funds written in March 2001, which has turned out to be prescient with the Bush tax cuts and ensuing deficits and exploding national debt.

I am currently (well since 2003!) working on and off on my own book (more off than on, for the past three years of the stock market debacle!)
My favorite poem is Rudyard Kipling's IF.
I have sought from a young age to "be good" and "do good", which is also a primary tenet of the world's first Monotheistic Religion: "Manashi, Gavashni, Kunashni" --" "Good thoughts; Good Words; Good Deeds". If I had not been born a Zoroastrian, I would very likely have become a Nun in my youth. I now follow my own version of spirituality. I do not belong to any organized religion; though, as I am often want to say the "New Testament" makes my heart sing, and my soul soar!
Political Ideology: I consider myself a democrat, because I do believe there is a definite role for government to protect the least amongst us, from the excesses of the powerful. I see the Republican Conservative elite (members of Congress and Fox News types) as cockeyed cynicists (opposite of the old song, "Cockeyed Optimist" from the movie & Play- South Pacific), who engage in Orwellian speak. They are deliberately cockeyed (or one-eyed) in that they read the Preamble to the Constitution, and see the words, they "choose" to cynically see: Federal Government is to be responsible primarily for the "National Defense", but obtusely miss the every next phrase in the same sentence "and General Welfare". They are ideologues first, republicans second, and US Citizens a distant third!
As for myself, I am more of a progressive pragmatist - I don't necessarily follow a Party Line - in my policy ideas and ideals. (Me thinks I have just happenstanced on to my pseudonym!)
