Why I Am Closing One Eye Now!

9A - Wipe My Tears 29 - Life Story A - A Cry For Help!

 I watch with dreaded concerns, worries, concerted fears and anxieties with what is going on all around the world – people going out in poor sailing boats in the high seas looking for salvation, security and better lives!

People demonstrating all over the world for whatever cause – from stopping of new projects, pensions, corruption and bribery of their political leaders, elections, education, unjust unfair judgments, for more fair pay – and so on! I see everywhere especially the aged, the women and the children crying bitterly and sadly – and nobody cares or bothers! I see armies killing their own people – including babies and children! I see grown-ups supposed to be mature pragmatic and at least caring and feeling for their country ruining and failing into more disasters and calamities and decadence – cannot even agree on an agenda and or place to discuss their plights.

I see people being butchered worse than even animals are – for a vain lost cause! I see self centred self-interest leaders that are ready to destroy their country and its peoples – so long as they can stay and remain in power! I see many things – all ugly, vile, crude and painful hurtful! Sad and tragic! My heart breaks out – but no tears come out! It has happened before – and will happen again!

I see people suffering immensely because basic services of utilities like water and electricity being continuously interrupted and disconnected whilst more grand projects are still being contemplated – when even they cannot get it right for basic utilities provisions!

I see people fighting over diminishing stock supplies in supermarkets and stores – or they cannot afford to purchase them because of high prices. I see people being laid off – because there is no more money – or because of continued unexplainable reasons for delays in payments! I see rampant corruption and bribery on the rise! I see the Old Guards and The Mafias winning the games again – and the usual Losers are you and I!

They say that one of the signals of The End of The World is when you become jealous and envious of someone you know (or even do not know!) has died! Lately Great Scholar and Preacher Sheikh Khalfan Al Esry has died – Allah Rahmah PBUH – but people slowly forgetting him now! Because nothing in life is permanent or a surety – even with lots of money and fame! But yet we deceive ourselves not to see it still!

I see now Big Public Officials that are denying to me that they once told me – Majid – Please Do not change! Please help the people (Staff)! In actual fact in social gatherings even the adversary who said I do not like him – but respect him as ‘Our Conscience Keeper’ pretending not to have seen you – or rush off because ‘someone is waiting for me!!

We see countries around us burning – but we care and feel nothing! We go on with our bad evil ways – with no care or concern!

I see Top Officials CEOs NGOs all still determined to make my books fail – even The Road Safety Awareness ones! Even the Arabic version! I preach the same message and theme on Road Safety – More Careful and Safer Driving – starting with The Youth – and give live examples cases and stories why we should pay more attention on Safer and More Careful Driving! But then I am not important – even if the country desperately need the message and theme! My appeal to the Top Officials, Public Officials and NGOs – they all look the other way – even after receiving Complimentary gifts – and some even failing to say thanks!

I see some of them fighting over even my Arab Management books – wishing for the dirt to be pushed still under the smelling carpet – or not to wash ‘our dirty linen in public’ per se! At most turn a blind eye – at worst as ‘not appropriate or relevant’ – if not painted being ‘Not Positive’!

The first question to ask – how come Foreigners in The Land and even outside appreciate the books – but not our own? If it is not the usual Haassiydn – jealousies, envies and polarisation aspects? And not valuing and appreciating our own – led by The Mafias in conjunction with the Old Guards!

 The second question to ask – how many Omanis (Arabs) have published 32 books of assorted topics? L

 The Arabs have said it – No one is blinder but with eyes but cannot see; deafer with ears but cannot hear and dumber with a mouth but cannot speak! Or as The Romans said – Those that the gods want to destroy – they make them not see, hear or speak! Or the East Africans – wait down for the person going up the ladder! Or the Chinese – If you are going to dig a grave for your enemy; dig two graves – one for your enemy; and keep one for yourself! We have heard it all before – but Who Cares? Simply No One!

Father

My Late Father PBUH

My Late Father PBUH used to tell us – if you are in a dhow (ship) and everyone is one eyed – including the Captain and Crew – close one eye! Pretend you are like them! Otherwise their Haassiydn – jealousy envy- they will take out one eye – maybe in the fights you lose both eyes – and go completely blind!

Whatever will come; let it! I do not care anymore now! I am closing one eye now! L!

From The Coast! Oman TV Presentation!

For Thursday – July 25th 2013.

Between Us Only!

From The Coast!

http://omanobserver.om/node/170271

*** All these articles upto this one are now incorporated in My Last Between Us Only! Book – Wipe My Tears!

Please visit www.myownmajid.com

From The Coast is a new Oman TV production series of 30 episodes about Oman and Zanzibar – and is being shown during the Holy month of Ramadhan 2013. Every day after Iftar Breakfast at 19.30hrs. You can find Episode 1 and links to the rest here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p1oOXtP2xLU&feature=youtube_gdata_player

The series carry many highly personalized emotional and sensitive topics to many of us all pertaining to the relationships – but particularly to the remaining in the islands of original Omani descent and ancestry! In one case there is an interview with HE The Minister of Foreign Affairs Yousuf Alawi – and his personal take and views on the subject – which was a great eye opener for even me thought well versed with the topic!

The programme refreshes our memories about these bygone glorious days. It is noteworthy that the 25 minute programme directed by Ahmed al Hadri will be shown during the whole of Ramadhan. The director is delighted that he has been able direct a cultural programme that would bring back a beautiful and magnificent life spent in Zanzibar.

There are many other sensitive, dramatic and highly emotional topics – for example in one of the interviwees – who looks all Omani in every aspect – refusing to talk to the TV Crew because ‘he is still angry that he has not been successful to return to Oman’ – though some of his children did! That brings us to the discussion point that there are many families here like him who have families split between those still there – and some who did return. In my own family – I have had uncles and aunts there – with the families there still – and though some of them do still wish to come – with the majority that did come back in the early 1970s – they are not able to!

I believe an Indian crew – and others too for that matter – could also run a similar programme of now as Omanis – but there originality coming from India and the other places too. In one of my returning trips to Oman from a course in UK – there was this British man in front of me for the queue for only Omanis and The GCC. So M being M – without closing his mouth – and removing all doubt! – politely pointed out to him that he was in the wrong queue! To which the good man turned to me waving his Omani passport – and curtly remarking – You mean this will not work here? He cleared faster than I was able to – anyway! And that told me a lot of things – some perhaps I may not have preffered to have heard then! Zanzibar A Zanzibar B   Zanzibar C

We too have family members that are citizens of other countries all over the world – USA, UK, Canada, India etc – and apart of those that the programme is supposed to cover – from Somalia all the way down to Mozambique even – and to the West of Africa to Ruanda, Burundi, Zaire and The Congos! Part and parcel of the only non-European colonial empire that belonged to Oman then! In some of the places – though under different flags and nationalities – even for the locals – they hold dear close fond memories of their times under The Oman Empire then! A great nation and reckoning power that was able to put its name, records and history – legacy, destiny etc. with colonial nations like British, France and others.

Researchers and social scientists – and in our future Omani youngsters especially – need to make a study of what had happened that this great power went that down that fast – if we even were there before the so-called great colonialists came well after us even – in many cases – and even in history records the colonialists had to come to Oman allegiances to ‘solve many of their problems that they were facing at the time – and Omani allegiances came to save the day for them – and everyone else around them for that matter! Perhaps even we had put too much trust and confidence with others that we thought were our friends – and had our best interests at heart – whilst quietly underground working against us – in harmful destructive wanton ways – whilst we lived in delusion and in wishful thinking!

And the same thing being repeated all over again – then and in the later chapters of history – and whilst we continue to have the self induced slumber – because and whilst we look at the smaller things in life – and cannot see the bush because of the trees – the bigger picture – and looking outside the box even! The truth cannot be denied that even great and powerful nations like USA, UK and France – have many minority ethnic citizens that had originated from the other countries – and especially from their ex colonies like UK and France cases – and the later constituting to even more than 10% of the total population even! I was watching this highly emotional programme of under 18 youth in Norway coming together to protect a young girl of 16 – who was inadvertently a Muslim! It made me feel so bad ‘with quick decisions of choosing sides’ that I got it all wrong at the programme start – and as a human being with feelings and care foir others – and human beings coming to do the right, correct and ethical thing – even if late and inadvertently – had made me feel that guilty – that I could not stop the tears even!

Sometimes I just cannot stop admiring the ‘adversary’ – because for countries like in Israel – whether you are black, brown or white – you are a Jew first – and if even they will kick out the ‘original owners of the land’ – to make space for their own people wherever they came from different parts of the world – even from Ethiopia! I read in The Hadith of Allah God of those people that helo and support one another – and wonder out aloud maybe that could be the reason that they are always winning and victorious? One cannot just stop thinking along these lines, anyway! Oman TV should make the programmes translated into English, French, German etc so that a wider audience of the world can get a hold of its great powerful message – of a great powerful Arab Nation – that had not only made and created history in the world – but a force to be reckoned – recognised and to be admired too!

Thanks to Oman TV – and MOI. I have carried a lot of the East African stories in my books – especially The Between Us Only! series – more information here and at www.myownmajid.com – some serious – but many funny anecdotes – and certainly worth reading – and not time-waters! But do not just take my word for it!

Happy 43rd Renaissance Day – May Allah Give HM long life and health – Amin, And for my British fans – great news, indeed, for the new third in line to the throne baby boy – and my guess is he is going to be called Michael?
