Shepherd in Iran’s remote village has thousands of Instagram followers

Excerpt from this article:

Mohammad’s Android phone was first bought for him by his older brother whose MBA education in Tehran is supported by Mohammad’s work in the village. Mohammad’s brother helped him set up his Instagram page. Mohammad who lives in the village of Bandar Gaz, says he could not believe the popularity of his simple natural life with city dwellers: “Our work is hard here and as we age we face issues like back pain and arthritis, but we live harmonious with nature, something that seems attractive to city folks who seem stressed but post their images during expensive vacations abroad to show they are relaxed at that moment … I am honestly happy and relaxed here in my village because I feel productive in my life. Unlike famous names, I am not using Instagram to do business with my fame, but to share how productive I am in my natural life.”
