What Is Happening To Us Now?

Front Wipe My TearsA - A Cry For Help!B - Psychologyusa-golden-seal[1]Books ABooks BMajid New (2)????????????????????????????????????????????????

As some of you may know, I was a Columnist for The Oman Daily Observer for the past 13 years until November 2013 when my two columns – with a legal enforceable contract signed by both parties for two columns on a continued basis – unless one rescinded in writing and giving one month notice period – was abruptly cut to one article only.

When I complained, the new man in charge – fellow Omani National – asked me to write a story with Omani theme for their new magazine Weekend – which I did – but they replied it ‘was not suitable for their requirements`! I found it only missing the next day in the magazine. I wrote and called but no one answered.

See the article here –

http://myshorttakes.com/2014/03/03/short-story-no-money-for-the-crayons/

Before that for more than 6 months they did not pay me for my articles . When I complained my emails were blocked by the top guy (also Omani National)! Eventually and belatedly they paid me! Because at one time I had quit because of ‘late payments’ but was persuaded to come back because the same new man promised you will be paid – which they did – eventually 6 months later and even here periodically!

I was given an email ultimatum of only one column – or not at all! I chose the later – that is why you do not see my columns anymore now! The Indian Mafias and The Old Guards have won again to kill The Truth guy speaking out again!

Should these things happen in Oman from a Government run paper? You be the Judge!

And yes I am also Author of 10 books www.myownmajid.com I had to beg them to cover my books for the new ones even The Road Safety Ones www.bethesafedriver.com though Muscat Daily easily covered my books on a public interest as Omani Author! Do I need to say more? Sad!!

The books they cover are from VIPs and outsiders – and picture books or children books – but no serious stuff like mine that makes you think! They can even cover Malala – but not their own!

Is this a National Policy? Even the CIA looks after itself! Yet we see live how a school graffiti destroyed a whole nation – but yet we do not see or hear! Or allow people to speak! And yes – No one is afraid anymore!

If this can happen to an Omani National Senior Professional I dread to think what would happen to the younger ones in other media  places! Very scary even to think about it!

The Big Question – Should a Government National Newspaper be run this way get involved – because these things have been known to effect us all in one way or the other – See The Mouse Trap Story!

The Mouse Trap story

I just had to share this one with you all!

A mouse looked through the crack in the wall to see the farmer and his wife open a package.

What food might this contain? The mouse wondered – he was devastated to discover it was a mousetrap.

Retreating to the farmyard, the mouse proclaimed the warning: There is a mousetrap in the house! There is a mousetrap in the house!

The chicken clucked and scratched, raised her head and said, ‘Mr. Mouse, I can tell this is a grave concern to you, but it is of no consequence to me.” I cannot be bothered by it.’ The mouse turned to the pig and told him, ‘There is a mousetrap in the house! There is a mousetrap in the house!’

The pig sympathized, but said, I am so very sorry, Mr. Mouse, but there is nothing I can do about it but pray. ‘Be assured you are in my prayers.’ The mouse turned to the cow and said ‘There is a mousetrap in the house! There is a mousetrap in the house!’
The cow said, ‘Wow, Mr. Mouse. I’m sorry for you, but it’s no skin off my nose.’
So, the mouse returned to the house, head down and dejected, to face the farmer’s mousetrap alone.

That very night a sound was heard throughout the house — like the sound of a mousetrap catching its prey. The farmer’s wife rushed to see what was caught. In the darkness, she did not see it was a venomous snake whose tail the trap had caught. The snake bit the farmer’s wife. The farmer rushed her to the hospital , and she returned home with a fever.

Everyone knows you treat a fever with fresh chicken soup, so the farmer took his hatchet to the farmyard for the soup’s main ingredient.

But his wife’s sickness continued, so friends and neighbours came to sit with her around the clock. To feed them, the farmer butchered the pig. The farmer’s wife did not get well; she died. So many people came for her funeral, the farmer had the cow slaughtered to provide enough meat for all of them.
The mouse looked upon it all from his crack in the wall with great sadness.  So, the next time you hear someone is facing a problem and think it doesn’t concern you, remember — when one of us is threatened, we are all at risk.

We are all involved in this journey called life. We must keep an eye out for one another and make an extra effort to encourage one another.

REMEMBER,,,,

EACH OF US IS A VITAL THREAD IN ANOTHER PERSON’S TAPESTRY;

OUR LIVES ARE WOVEN TOGETHER FOR A REASON.

One of the best things to hold onto in this world is a friend

The Dirty Games That People Play On Others! 1

The Dirty Games That People Play On The Others!

Bad 2 Bad 3 Bad AEuthanasia 6OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAFront Wipe My Tears

Images For Demonstration Purposes Only!

There is a famous East African saying that goes like this – The one who digs a well will go in himself! A Chinese one goes like this – If you dig a grave for your enemy – dig two graves! And keep one for yourself!

I am watching with great concern and consternation unfolding events in Ukraine where it is most likely for a full scale war to now erupt at anytime – from a fast changing scene a few days back where it seemed the violent demonstrations that took so many lives were ending and with a peace deal in the formation! All these things have now changed conversely for the worse instead!

As an Omani I am very proud and in holding my head high with pride and esteem with our HM and country policies of  ‘non intervention’ in the affairs of other countries! This is the reason why Oman is highly respected and esteemed in the international arena!

Oman did not rush to offer aid to Egypt (even if it could!) to Egypt after the violent bloody put down of demonstrations army led and to overthrow a democratically elected government – even if the win was by a thin margin! Democracy is democracy – even if you hate and dislike the winners! And the rule applies to all – not only to Western countries! Either you do it – or don’t! There is no middle ground here!

Please do not get me wrong! I am not a Muslim Brotherhood supporter – even by default or inadvertently! I wrote an article titled – Morsi: A Question of Management? – where my views are explicitly clear! I may even dare to going to say with audacity that Religion and Politics do not mix well – and Religious inclined parties need to evaluate their modus operandi and strategies well before going into politics – certainly when running for elections!

See The Articles Here!

http://majidwrite.com/2013/08/19/morsi-a-question-of-management/

http://majidwrite.com/2013/07/27/solving-our-own-problems/

The modern world does not mix well with politics – and as we see the mess all over the Islamic and Muslim world now – from Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iraq and particularly Syria and Egypt now in the making! My sincere advice – watch the Egyptian scene – another Ukraine in the making!

Now the IMF and others are targeting countries like Uganda because of ‘curbing homosexuality trends’ with enacting stiff penalty laws! The interference in others’ internal affairs becomes a matter of routine and practice – and knows no bounds or barriers.

I find it strange that some of those that supported Sissi take-over of Egypt have now left the country – and living abroad. And he Sissi had even ventured to go to Russia to buy weapons – and their support for him because of their dislike of so-called ‘Islamic Governments’ – and the Afghanistan invasion is still not a learner to them – even now years later!

And looking at events like in CAR where massacres of Muslims are daily occurences – under even the so-called watches of UN and International forces! They know they can – when we do to our own without any feelings of impunity and conscience – and the continuing proxy wars of The Islamic Leading countries that should work together to ‘protect and preserve Islam’ – rather than doing the opposite with great harm, destruction and calamities instead!

Excuse me  please! – I am not a Political Analyst or Expert – but please forgive me for not stopping to reflect now in all that is happening now – and in smirking all over my face now! I am not the one that likes to brag – but saying ‘I told you so!’ – applies to many of us now – even to the small environments like offices with dirty games of the Mafias and The Old Guards that do not trust their own – and ‘in shooting at their own troops’ instead!

The worst evil games is causing frictions, splits and divisions between people – and using polarization tricks even!

May The Good Lord Protect and Preserve us from his anger and fury – Ameen – Amen.

I do not know about you but I have recently found that at whichever turn I take now I do meet people that are not good nor sincere people in life that will make promises but not keep – and will purposefully and willfully annoy and upset you with bad hearts and intentions! They are the same people that would easily land you in great distress and troubles if it will suit them – and there are simply no red lines or barriers.

People that are proud and conceited – and even if they know they have done something purposefully wrong to you will Never Apologise – but smirk as you squirm and fidget.

People that will put fingers in your eyes – and expect you to not fidget and remain calm!

People that are moving us into polarization, divisions and splits – and abuse our hospitality, respect and welcome – because they see us divided, polarized, weak and docile!

People that are purposefully and willfully rude, arrogant, mean, vicious and dastardly!

Something gotta give – or break at anytime – like the cinder fire burning heatedly underneath before it surfaces – and explodes in our faces!

People that will judge and criticize you without knowing all the facts and the truth – because it suits them – or just do not care or bother!

It seems it is the in-thing fashionable thing to betray and cause harm and destruction as just being The Norm for many of them!

But the worst kind are those people that can help you in your plight and situation – but choose not to and not to be bothered! Why rock the boat? And what for?

Day by day things are getting worse – and even those people that were once considered nice and helpful are joining the bad and nasty group – with no scruples or conscientious objection.

We simply need to self analyse our selves and in deep conscience before we enter the cesspit of only more decay, decadence and malaise!!

Perhaps it is the age thing or depression setting in – or simply having been beaten many times before one has become sensitive and small things that never upset and annoy you before now do!

Perhaps being diabetic is also a contributory factor!

What do you think? Have you any views to share with the rest of us? Why are people so proud and conceited that only they are important and the rest are not! That they are only ones that are correct, ethical, principled and professional – but the rest are not!

It is not only outsiders but goes now with so-called friends, relatives and even family members too!

People that enjoy seeing others in troubles and distress – or enjoying putting them in troubles and distress.

No one cares or bothers anymore – and Religion has just become ‘a fashion’ – but not to put your soul, heart and mind into it!

And Yes! We do see things Live on Television how small things with bad hearts have turned so bad and led them to great disasters and calamities – but we ado not care nor bother – as if nothing can happen or touch us!

Allah have mercy on us!

Very sad and tragic!

May Allah Have mercy on us and Guide us to the right path and way – Ameen Amen

Take Care!

Explaining Death To Children!

Images Death and Prayers – For Demonstration Purposes Only!

 This week a relative lady had died due to breast cancer case. Before the funeral – all the male were gathered in one house – and the ladies in another house where the dead person lay before the funeral wash and abolution. Both the houses were in the same street and belonging to the different brothers in the family.

As I was going to the toilet nearing departure to the Masjid time – I saw these two boys watching cartoons in television – with a loud voice on! So I asked the one holding the remote ‘why did you put the television on when you know that your grandmother had just died?’

His answer shook me to pieces – he hardly 5 years old told me – no we were told our grandmother was very sick and is in hospital – and the people are now leaving to go to the hospital! The children were in the men’s house! So I asked if ‘they were allowed to watch television because the men were leaving the house now? He looked at me as if I had asked him a silly stupid question!

I can only presume that their parents were so busy with the funeral arrangements to have time to sit and discuss about the death of their grandmother to them!

Frankly speaking, this week too I had a live Oman FM Radio interview with the subject of ‘Embedding The Habit of Reading To Children’ as the subject matter! In it I had talked about families disintegrating and the children being looked by housemaids – whilst the father and the mother were all trying to make more and more money – and not taking caring and paying attention to the children as they were required to – by mentoring, coaching and ‘leading by example’. My actual words were – What is the point of having so much more money – when the family is disintegrating in front  of your very eyes? See the article here! Also here and also at   http://majidall.com/2014/02/05/my-oman-fm-radio-interview/

I remember when our grandfather died no one had spoken to us about all the havoc and crying and what was going on. So we were taken to a neighbour’s house and there we did not think it as outward or weird to play football – whilst they were making the body of our grandfather ready for burial. Even as a teenager we did not know what to do when our baby sister died as at three months old – she was born of poor health and hardly cried till the last one day of her death!

Parents underestimate children and what knowledge they have on death – which can shock you quite a lot! Give them due credit – especially the children now of late! They have seen birds, cats, dogs etc die – some unfortunate even in fatalistic accidents – www.bethesafedriver.com

The tendency is to cover and protect the children from a ‘morbid and scary subject’ – but the outcome and repercussions are too scary and horrendous even to imagine! What kind of future will they have with their offsprings if they are not to be made to feel and have feelings – and to be made aware of death – and that death will come to all of us one day! Only we do not know our time – and how we will die!

This is a widely covered subject in the Internet – and there are many websites in the Internet to guide us – see below – but the best book is our Holy Quran (Gospel, Torah etc) and the Islamic Hadith too – and like I said in my interview to spend ‘more quality time with the children – and in leading by example!

Explaining Why! Please Do Not Stop Writing!

This week was very hectic and traumatic with very emotional painful and exhaustive exchanges between me and an ex boss in PDO! The irony was he had never been a direct formal boss to me in any aspects – but was instrumental in causing dent to my career – whether by his own volition or by instructions from higher up!

My mistake was copying him amongst my other ‘friends’ an email protest type to one local English daily. In a response he curtly said to me – Quote –

Majid,

Two things.

1. Avoid criticising others unnecessarily. 2. Avoid GLORIFYING yourself excessively.

That is the secret of success.

Unquote.

From the goodness of his heart – he copied this email to ALL on the list. I had addressed this direct to The Editor – and my inadvertent stupidity in including him in the copy circulation list! And giving him that opportunity any person like he was would not let go away!

Not to bore you with more sordid details, but there was a reaction from my two strongest supporters after bitter rancorous hard hitting exchanges with him. He later tacitly apologised – but asked me to take him out from my mailing list – which I was now most inclined to do anyway without any further prompt from him.

A         Response verbatim from one addressed to someone he knows well in PDO – and copied to me – Quote –

Dear Ustaadh xxx and after compliments 

In the name of Allah – With due respects Sir –  

A friend had forwarded me the not necessary response that this guy YYYYY has sent to Ami Majid. Unfortunately, people miss the very important thing that this man is highly appreciated and followed by many young Omanis as one lone voice that really cares and feels for us! 

He is one of the few that took great risks and dangers to himself even harm when even in PDO and he suffered a lot life later on because of his stand on things and everyone.

 It is very sad and tragic that you his so-called friends treat him like this and I can only assume an element of jealousy and envy – perhaps because of his popularity. You have hurt him so much and now he has decided to stop writing his websites and columns. 

Only time will tell the repercussions in the future and please accept my sincere apologies for this email. Forgive my English also Sir. 

Allah protect and preserve our country from all things bad inside and outside Ameen – Unquote!

B         Response verbatim from Number Two Responder – Quote

Dear Majid 

If you want my personal advice and sent in good faith please keep away from all these people ex PDO especially because you cannot remove the hypocrisies and double standards within them.  

It will not surprise me and from seeing some of the names that they will be communicating to each other and laughing and sneering you behind your back. This is how they are and will always be! Some of them even got later in life great personal tragedies and woes in their lives and in their families but they will never learn! 

Keep away from them and even stop writing even. This is a lost cause beyond redemption and only time will tell! So please keep away! All of them combined cannot even be 20% of what you are as Majid. 

I will always pray for you and your family Amin 

Unquote.

And finally to those that finally killed my columns – I said to them –

Quote –

I see that ZZZ (expatriate person) has now taken over my columns! It will not surprise me that you will be paying him even 3 or 4 times my rate – but that is how things are nowadays! So it is not surprising to me at all. Take care and all the best! – Unquote!

Now you know why I am giving writing in this website low priority from now onwards! It was good whilst it lasted – but everything 9good) has to end one day!

Wishing you all the best!
