Turkish Shadow Theater “Karagöz” was accepted as “Intangible Cultural Heritage” in 2009 by UNESCO and was added to the list of Intangible Cultural Heritage. Boroumand stated that "I wrote and perform this show in different countries because I think that the war and violence are the human biggest problem in present time. All people are engaged in war or worried about it. The most part of news is about war and violence. All of us like that the world is governed by peace and friendship but what we have done to get it? Why is it spent for war but nobody spends for peace? I know that somebody take advantage of creating wars in the world but why the ordinary people must pay others greed by losing their life.
