When it comes to leading a nation, the role of a leader has usually been the most effective or distructive part among others. Wether a country is rulled according to democracy values or not, there are always defined responsibilities for the leader. Economical status of citizens, education system, social behavior within the country, relationship with other nations, and security are the most important responsibilities a leader ought to consider along his/her carrier. Reza Shah and Mohammadreza Shah -as Pahlavi Monorchy- are one the most famous leaders among the long history of Iran. To give a glance, Reza Shah took the control of Iran about 100 years ago, when our country was so close to turn into some new countries (like what happened to soviet union in 1991). At that point, there was no any sort of security for citizens, any education system, any acclaimed represetative for Iran in international environment, or even regulated public health system. As Reza Shah took control of Iran, one on his first actions was establishment of a military system to protect the country from internal and external dangers. Since there was a huge difficulty in terms of transportation within the different parts of Iran, he built a railroad system connecting North and South of Iran that still works. The first modern university of Iran -Tehran University- was established during his era. After resignation from power, it was his son's turn, Mohammadreza Shah, to lead the country. During the first years of his monorchy, he couldn't reach any noble achievement owing to being young and inexprenced. However, as days and years would pass, he was getting more confident to persue his wishes for the country. In my view, the most important victory Iran reached during the last couple of hundreds of years took place in Mohammadreza Shah years of rulling: in year 1954 Iran could take back his right from England to sell its oil. Moreover, establishing many universities and schools within the whole country, building very high-tech industries at that time, setting a hirarachy of powerful military forces to protect the country, and etc were only a small part of his era. Although there is no need for any type of monorchy in this modern time of democracy, many people of Iran nowdays miss those days of progress.
