Two Samples of The Works!

M.04          Open Forums – Or Entrapments?

When I was working for this Oil Company at one time there was this Open Forum that anyone Staff – even Locals – could write to The Top Guys in Shell International in London and The Hague!

The Local Management were ‘encouraged’ to allow their people also to ‘contribute’. In hindsight, I think it was more an ‘An Entrapment’ to see who of the local guys more active and vocal – with ‘Yours Truly’ on board!

I used to raise many issues related to Omanisation (Localisation), Training and Development and Recruitment and Job Opportunities for The Omani Youth! This really incensed the Local Admin Director who kept on saying that as HR you are in Management and ‘supposed to defend ‘Management’!

I retorted that I was not ‘attacking any Management of any sort’ and that as HR was ‘The Conscience Keeper’ of The Establishment – and that ‘freedom of expression’ was guaranteed to us in ‘The Forums’ I had every right to participate!

This made him more mad by my obstinacy and vocalism! I knew I was not going to be promoted being under him anyway – or even get a higher bonus – so why the heck? Let me enjoy myself! They could not fire me anyway because the ‘Laws of The Country’ protected us (then!) and also I was doing my job quite well – with exceptional of this added irritant – especially to him!

Like many (Office) Dictators, he thought I was doing this especially as ‘I was planning to instigate an uprising to overthrow him! L L !

One day he came to my Office to try a different approach to say even if he wanted to promote me he could not – because of this element! As he ‘heard’ I was doing a good job otherwise!

Anyway, I stopped contributing when I heard people ‘outside the Offices’ talking about this – and when one in Nigeria wrote to me to put his case of Shell causing environmental disasters in Warri and The Nile Delta! I realized things were turning sour and deadly – and soon after Locals were ‘no longer allowed’ to participate due to ‘pressures beyond their control and coming from Outside The Company!

 *******

 M.05          The British Police Officer (in Oman)!

He was not in a Police Vehicle but though Police Registered the Peugeot 504 – always white colour – and I was behind him in my Toyota Crown when he went through a No Entry sign near The Offices Bank in those days. He came across to me on the other side of the road – again crossing a No Entry Sign as he blocked me as I was coming in!

He was fuming mad – and breathing heavily? He asked me why did I blow my car horn at him? As he was in Police Uniform? I said meekly to him – because as a Police Officer you had violated Traffic Rules – and you should know better! Whilst all the time putting a ‘brave front’ whilst shaking all inside! He wanted my Driving License and my PDO card. I was at first reluctant – but then I gave him.

He told me he was a ‘Personal Friend’ of a Top Public Official (also British!) and he will tell the MD about me! He wrote down my full name – my Personnel Number – and my Department!

Later on the good MD called me in his Office for a private chat – his good advice to be careful because ‘these guys (then!) could have you arrested for several days – or weeks even – without taking you to Court – even if you were right! It is his words against your – and guess whom The Judge will believe! He said tome things of ‘reality’ which even today I will not be able to put down here! L !

I found it strange and odd when he (The Police Official) said to me – As Officers in case of Emergencies – we can break the Laws! I do not know if going to the Bank was an emergency – unless it was only for him! L!

The Fear of Failing! The Said Article Not Published! 1

The Fear of Failing!

February 11, 2017

I wrote this article 2 years ago! It became like an omen a prophecy of what happened to me later in a space of a year – falling first into a coma state in Royal Hospital whilst I was in ICU this bank and an Omani Court had placed a case against me for my Consultancy that had gone bankrupt bust 15 years ago in 2001!

Nothing has changed much in Oman – and still happening to date!

If The Leadership are real serious – they need to read this article as a start!

Between Us Only!

The Fear of Failing!

Failure is the opportunity to begin again more intelligently! – Henry Ford

Success isn’t about how much money you make, it’s about the difference you make in people’s lives – Michelle Obama

Success is stumbling from failure to failure with no loss of enthusiasm – Winston Churchill

I was talking to my children and The Younger Generation born post 1970s after HM Ascension and trying to convince them that the time was ripe and opportune for them to go into business – as there were great support now for being Self Employed and for SMEs! I reminded them of HE Dr. Sunaidy’s great offerings like being paid within 28 days; the great financial support from RAFD and others; reserved 10% slot for Public Contracts; relaxation of Omanisation for 2 years amongst many others! But yet people are still reluctant to go ‘the route of SMEs’ – and I tried to find out more from them for the reasons why?

One of the major fears and concerns that they have in their young minds is ‘in making it to be successful in their business endeavours’ – and the requirements for them to be fully involved and occupied in their businesses. That is in losing their jobs and confirmed incomes – and in trying something different – and certainly more scary and fearsome! The start and the middle going parts are the more easier ones – but the ending and final parts scare them to pieces! What if I fail? What will happen to me? What will happen to people owing me money? Especially The Banks and The Lenders?

They have seen what can happen to their elders ‘that have failed in businesses’ – even if it was unplanned and as a result of conditions inadvertently beyond their conditions – like bidding for a contract and getting it – but your estimates for the bid turns out by hidden or unexpected turn of events costs to be far much more than you had tendered for or realised in expectations – which has happened many times in reality and as a matter of fact.

There is also this element that ‘people dread to touch getting into SMEs businesses ‘even by a long pole’ is the stereotyping of local companies – even more worse for SMEs! Unfortunately and sadly too by our own Stakeholders and Decision Makers in undercutting and failing to ‘value and recognise’ our own capabilities, potentials, skills and talents!

Also it has been known and to also be practicised even too – that we are very hard and rigid on our own – but can turn ‘the other cheek’ and be more flexible and open to Outsiders – even more to The International ones! Sadly, the same Job Scope and Tasks they can expect (and do receive many times!) to get even 3 or 4 times the amounts that the local companies or SMEs can ever hope to receive! We fail dismally to value and esteem our own more – and this ‘disease’ is what is killing people to venture out into business – the ‘disease of envy, jealousy and polarisation’ even!

But that is not the only scary part! The more scary part ‘is if you finally fail’! All hell is let loose – and even your ‘own personal freedom and movement’ is at risk – in addition to facing so many legal and other issues too! You cannot try to convince people – despite all the talk and rhetoric – because they have seen it still happen to their parents, family and elders! That at the time when ‘you most need help and from The Banks’ – they abandon you one by one!

I have always made this joke about someone with a big tray of meat (chicken, fish) Biriyani with him – yet he wants a small bite and share of you with a small plate of sandwich (samosas) – and he is not ‘happy with you if you deny him the indulgence’ – people who have already made it and rich enough just do not let things go ‘with wandering eyes’ of what more they could have – and if you are disagreeable or not forthcoming to share – they can make things pretty awkward, hard and difficult for you – to start the spiral of going out of control and eventually in making wrong decisions to start losing and in failing! You never know what is out there – and what can happen!

My advice and counsel to The Younger Generations is still to try to go into SMEs and give it your best shot – and do not be scared by failing – because it is a way of learning to do things better in another way. Wishing you all the very best!

He looks Omani???

We have done it once again!

I was checking with my Book Distributor in Oman Family Bookshops if there were any demands from The Organisers of The Fair for any of my books – and they responded negatively!

What else is new?

We make great attempts to show constructive pragmatic National feelings to promote National Worthy causes – but by subjective and narrow minded approaches (polarization even!) we single out those we do not want to involve – yet have the courage, guts and the audacity to put in The National Press and Media such events and singling out those we want to omit not to be shown their products in such fairs!

If the purpose is to encourage Omani Children to imbed the habit of reading there is no better example than to see books authored and written by local Omanis – and see their photos at the back of the book!

Unless of course is only for Expatriate Children – then I guess it would be okay to miss out Omani Authors.

I am one of the Few Omani Authors and Writers with 10 Ten books – http://www.myownmajid.com and even interviewed in Oman FM Radio more than three times in different occasions by different people = please see below as sample.

Unfortunately we in Oman will always remain THE TAIL of The GCC because of our inward marginalized subjective polarized outlooks – supported by The Mafias and The Old Guards!

ALLAH KAREEM! GOD IS GREAT! AT LEAST ALLAH IS THERE FOR POOR PEOPLE LIKE US WITHOUT WASTAH!

Everyone in this world is responsible for one’s action – and inaction too!

Take Care!

Book Review – Culture Features – The Oman Daily Observer

Tuesday 22nd, October 2013 / 17:55

Written by Oman Observer in Culture

Wipe My Tears! — Between Us Only!has been adapted from Majid Al Suleimany’s successful newspaper columns in Oman Daily Observer. Utilising the very best touching stories and articles from the columns that he has penned over the past four years, Al Suleimany touches on a wide variety of vital and riveting topics. The subject matter will be of interest to everyone from teenagers to grandparents — and from the clerks to the CEOs.

The book focuses on the study of humanity, human needs, human interaction, society, and economics, as well as other areas. In fact, the author covers all socio-economic-political aspects of society, with an emphasis on working environments such as office space.

The author also addresses society as a whole, and the dire repercussions and consequences of bad ideas and thoughts that can be harmful to society in the broadest sense. Though many topics apply to Oman and GCC countries, the collection of columns organised by Al Suleimany offers a universal appeal because, in his view, society and family are quite similar.

According to the author, “We have the same needs, worries, concerns and fears — as well as what we like and do not like. This is because the human being is essentially the same — regardless of race, creed, religion, colour, ancestry, and ethnicity!” The book will encourage soul-searching, deep analysis, and a quest to make the world a better place. It has been penned directly from the heart of the author to the reader. It carries many emotional personal family stories and encounters — including work experiences as a highly-qualified human resources management consultant.

The book moves quickly, advancing without boundaries, and is careful never to get bogged down in politics. While critical, the writings are also realistic and practical, and stress the need in society for change in a way that will foster more patience, tolerance, and understanding. The author, through his writings, offers up a tome that is part prayer and part preaching, desperately hoping for a change in the world that will produce a new and more positive direction. “Live and let live in peace, harmony, and co-existence,” is Al Suleimany’s mantra. States the author, “We have the same needs, worries, concerns and fears, as well as what we like and do not like.

This is because the human being is the same regardless of race, creed, religion, color, ancestry, and ethnicity!” The book will encourage soul-searching, analysis, and a quest to make the world a better place. The writings are realistic and practical, and stress the need in society for change in a way that will foster more patience, tolerance, and understanding — as well as how to live with others in the world.
