Nima was born in Baladeh in Noor, Mazandaran. He also wrote poetry in Mazandarani in his book "Roja". Nima used natural elements to describe the state of society in his poems.

In general, Nima reformed the rhythm and allowed the length of the line to be determined by the depth of the thought being expressed rather than by the conventional Persian meters that had dictated the length of a bayt (verse) since the early days of Persian poetry.

His unconventional poetic diction took poetry out of the rituals of the court and placed it squarely among the masses.

Nima"s most dramatic element was the application of symbolism. His use of symbols was different from the masters in that he based the structural integrity of his creations on the steady development of the symbols incorporated. In this sense, Nima"s poetry could be read as a dialogue among two or three symbolic references building up into a cohesive semantic unit.

May he rest in peace.
