We are very lucky in Oman for having our Beloved His Majesty Sultan Qaboos bin Said!

May Allah SWT Our Lord God Almighty Give him long life and health Ameen!

Even though I am a sick and ailing person – and with a lot of other personal problems – I sincerely genuinely and honestly feel –

I look at the News!

Everywhere and all around us and in front of our eyes –

– See people are crying!

– See people are dying!

– Seeing people being victimized, injured and being maimed!

– See all the destruction disasters decadence malaise and decay!

– See mischief being done on land!

– See there is just wars and fights all around!

– See people living as displaced and destitute – both internally and externally!

– See so many other bad things!

Oman – under HM Renaissance – is a land and bastion of peace, harmony, understanding, tolerance and co-existence amongst people – Local, Residents and Visitors and Guests!

Frankly and honestly, I do believe if people had listened or followed his steps to our His Majesty there would have been NO –

No Iraq Saddam invasion of Kuwait!

No Gulf War of any kind as a result!!

No Syria Destruction and Civil War as now!

No Libya Destruction and Civil War as now!!

No Yemen fiascos and war!

No attacks on Yemen!

No Fitnas of any kind!

– Most likely as a result No Daesh or IS syndromes!

– Most likely not even September 11 events!

Indeed initially, we had some initial problems – but under wise leadership of HM – they all went solved and peace and harmony reigned in – Al Hamdu Lillah – Allah Be Praised!

May Allah SWT Our Lord God Almighty Give him long life and health Ameen!

About The Book!

I        PREFACE

This book is the 11th book in The Series – Between Us Only! And my 21st book so far.

It is recommended that this book be read together with this book: –

Writing: My Passion! – www.createspace.com/5085322

* Also – Goodbye; Between Us Only! – www.createspace.com/5139836

There were some articles missed out in the above * book after the end and the collapse of my column articles in November 2013 – more than a year ago!

What is of paramount importance is to get all my articles Post last Between Us Only1 series – Wipe My Tears! The book was published in June 2013 – all intended to put all my books in one place for further references and for record purposes!

I have also included all those articles after end of my columns mainly based on ‘a Technicality’ that was designed to stop and to end my columns.

I was keeping to myself and trying to avoid conflict – but still people were after me! So I decided to accept the challenge – and write and record this book as last of my columns writings for future records and references.

No one can kill the spirit, soul and heart of a Writer – because so long as a Writer will live he will not stop writing!

As Jules Renard had said – No one considers a Writer as ridiculous – even if he does not make any money! So there! Besides, I had posted this in all The Social Media – November 13, 2014

Why are we so set against each other? We will support The Foreigner and The Expatriate but not esteem and value our own! We do not have trust and confidence on our own! It is part of this great CURSE Jealousy, Envy and Bad Hearts within us! Bad unfeeling uncaring hearts inside some of us only! Pure evil-like just as is ISIL!

  • It takes only one person to destroy the works that took so many others so many years to build – and we never learn until it is too late!
  • Do Not Cry It Is Over! Be Happy That It Has Happened!

Take Care!

From: Ahmed Al-Mazrouy Date: September 17, 2014 at 10:31:54 AM GMT+4 Subject: RE: Emailing: Road Safety Novel Books

Dear Colleagues,

I have read Majid’s Road Safety book and it is comprehensive with real cases of accidents. I used the book to train team members on accident investigations, however; it is very useful to prevent ourselves from falling into the same situations.

Recently; It came to my knowledge that a local is burnt while splashing petrol on dry wood fire in order to improve burning but unfortunately he got burnt and currently at burns ward. How many cases had and have occurred and why don’t we learn? Mostly, we do not read! Regards, Engineer Ahmed Al-Mazrouy

Similarly, for A Cry For Help! Both books are Arab Management Books by me! Frankly I have got emails – but never a call before! I was overwhelmed with emotions!

This is the world always! 5000 years ago the belly dancer used to earn more than the writer. . The drummer earns more than the Baker, carpenter* and black Smith. If u invite Einstein today for a science seminar and then invite a naked woman for a press conference, the public would leave Einstein and his science and gather around the naked woman. This is not our fault.  Its all because most of the people run after their fantasy and desires. Therefore they encourage the silly issues and run away from serious issues – Dr. Mustafa Mahmoud

 Writing is a Passion of Writers, Authors and Columnists – and will not die even after the Author’s death – because his works will always be there to be viewed and be read by future generations! As we have seen books still doing rounds by Authors long time gone centuries ago!

Thus those ‘acting as God’ to stop and prevent your writings are just deluding themselves more than anybody else! Just keep praying for them to return to the right path and ways – Ameen – Amen – and for Good Karma!

For Bad Karma says – Those who cause you hurt and pain – do not go for revenge – because God will let you watch as they ‘screw up’ in life! The East Africans also say – The man who goes up the ladder will come down sooner or later! Or as the Chinese say – if you are going to dig a grave for your enemy – dig two graves – and one keep for yourself!

G.02            From The Newspaper!

Fan (Omani) – I think your reaction to the newspaper was to the point. My only advice is that don’t allow the other party to get the best of you. Don’t sound emotional. Just give them your piece of mind and move on…

***

Lady Fan (Omani)  – Well , its one’s duty to speak up when things don’t go well, if I were you I would have kept quiet cause its just like talking to a wall. It’s not heard and nobody cares. It’s just losing your face over and over again and nobody cares. I will never agree with you the way you humiliate yourself. You are a talented man you deserve the best of the respect. Be calm Majid it won’t harm you and Allah sees everything. Be patient. If one door closes the other will open. Believe me!

***

Fan (Omani) – Spot on. I think there is a lot of hypocrisy in our society. You call a spade a spade and that’s quite admirable. Very few people have the guts to go openly public in expressing a critical opinion. Did you get any response?

***

From A Dr. Ph.D. – Dr. Faris Al Hajri – See Comments Here

Dear Mr. Majid, We strongly support your endeavor. Remember, the best writers, noble people, celebrities, scientists, etc., were at first neglected by their own people; that is in West during the past centuries. But; today it all changed. So keep up, never give up, you’re a very great writer, never let any negative people or pessimistic people put you down, the most you succeed, the more their feel ashamed of their wrong acts.

Finally, the Universe will respond to you abundantly. Keep up with those who are attracted by you, keep some distance to those who neglect you.

Keep looking at your achievements most whenever you get upset of a specific incident. You’re great in the eyes of many who deserve to see your smiles.  Cheers!!!

Senior Omani Professional – I admire your guts and in your sincerity to want to make changes in things before they go really bad!

Some others ‘too personal’ to include here – but equally good (or have requested anonymity)!

****

As received…..

Sir – We are with you always!

Yesterday night a group of us good getting together friends were having a meal at this Arabian Restaurant in Ghobrah and the subject starting moved to your columns articles. And your call about more Omanis to be needed represented in the especially English press and media as it is now being controlling and dominated by Indian people mainly and also some British peoples.

You also called for more stronger quality powering Omani Managers in the Press and media. Believe me Sir that people mistake us to be not knowing and not smart people and they can fool and play with us. But if they cannot learn than they will never learn in future. We are not stupid peoples. We aware and knowing too.

So Ustaadh please rest now. You have said it but they ignore you and not listen. You have done your job and duty as few Omanis that really care and feel. You take rest because you are now done and take rest Sir. Look after family only now.

Like you always tell us to take care! Ever admirer and fan to you Sir. We will never forget you till end of us.

Please forgive my English. Omani (Young) Fan…

After Compliments

Dear Ustaadh Majid;

Thank you about the information about your new Road Safety book Arabic – Behind The Wheel!

 – www.createspace.com/4875352   خلف عجلة القيادة

I would like to express my appreciation of your kind efforts to deliver to my office your two Arab Management books – Psychology of Arab Management Thinking! – www.trafford.com/08-0889 – and A Cry For Help! –

http://bookstore.trafford.com/Products/SKU-000142695/A-Cry-For-Help.aspx .

More importantly for writing these books and letting the rest of us in the country and the world the issues and aspects that have been troubling you for such a long time and your feelings that you needed to write these books as information to the rest and detailing your own personal experiences and exposures over 35 years and most of it being in PDO of 25 years services and as a Human Resources Management Consultant for later years.

I am pleased to inform you that I have now read both the books and am lost in words of where to start, pause or end! You have done a brilliant work and your efforts need to be recommended and to be appreciated.

I have recommended your books to my colleagues as Essential Reading for us in The Leadership. I personally think this far outweighs any monetary and other awards that you may have received so far.

My Congratulations and Thanks once again. Please let me know if you are writing any sequels and when The Road Safety Book will be available locally in Oman.

Please accept best regards and wishes

I talked to my USA Publishers about our discussions yesterday on my books. Here is their response.

 Quote

Dear Mr. Suleimany

Thanks for your email on the points raised.

All your books including even the new ones have been independently reviewed by Books Subjects Experts including Eric Hoffer establishment and that includes also Independent Assessors in Kindle.

The feedback were all sent to you and mainly being highly commendable and very positive with only some highlighters here and there. That is the reason why your Psychology Book had won The USA Golden Seal of Literary Excellence Award for 2013.

It is true that the Assessments and Reviews are found outside the book but we have a Policy of publishing your book within 6 to 8 weeks once full PDF works have been produced to us.

We do not wait for Assessments Reviews etc. to be included in the books because in that way we allow the Reader to form his own independent opinions before reading what others are thinking about the book. This is in its best format Literary Excellency and Freedom to the Reader. The quoted examples in your country are perhaps because of too much censoring and editing bureaucracy and thus the need to include in the books before publishing.

Mr. Suleimany, you know well with 12 books that is not how we operate as Publishers and for USA books publishing. We do not have this requirement in USA.

You have achieved a great deal and have done great works and you should hold your head high and brim with excitement and pride with your achievements.

Please do not let anyone make you feel down or small because as a Writer you cannot please everyone and there will always be some dead set against your books from the start for their own personal or other reasons. Especially as your books cover real core hard stuff that many are scared stiff to touch even by a long pole!

Have A Great Day!

**They Will Not Publish This!

**They Will Not Publish This!

HM Speech 2  Omani Faces - Toyota Omani Worker 1  Omani Worker 2 Omani Worker 3 Omani Worker 4

The Omani Youth Are Ready For Their Dutiful Roles and Responsibilities – if we allow them to!

For a long time now I have been concentrating on propagating my books – www.myownmajid.com – rather than commenting on the many articles that have appeared – especially in The English Press – as to Why The Omani Youth Are Not Employable (Into Jobs!). I said I will keep to myself – because for all my life I have been fighting against this theme and focus – and from The First Day I started working in Human Resources after my graduation in 1976! The same slogans – the same emphasis – nothing much has yet changed – despite us not ‘escaping The Arab Springs repercussions’!

What made me write this article today is what I saw an ‘Expert’ British Lady writing in one of The Websites that carried His Majesty Speech to The Omani People! Allah Give him quick recovery, long life and health – Ameen!

In this article this lady had given her opinion why Oman is in Trouble – because Omanisation has failed badly! It is surprising out there that everyone becomes an ‘Expert’ when it comes to ‘why the Omani Youth is NOT EMPLOYABLE in especially The Private Sector! I do not blame her – because even our Own Columnists say almost the very same things – with bits here and there in variations!

I read also of The Ministry of Information talking the Chief Editors of The Newspapers! Frankly, I think he needed to speak more to The English Press – where ‘The Indian Mafia’ et al reign supreme under the ‘watchful eyes of The Old Guards’ – some are not even in that category but more being weak, docile, gullible and naïve lots – rather than having any sort of political touch or bias!

So please forgive me as an ex now retired Human Resources Management Consultant, Professional, Expert and Advisor making my valid pertinent points! Besides, the fact that I published 4 Arab Management Books – (1) Psychology of Arab Management Thinking! – (2) A Cry For Help! – (3) Arab Management: Reality or Myth? The Arab Manager – and (4) The Arab Manager: The Call! – all in my books websites – www.myownmajid.com and www.myown-ebooks.com

I was also looking at LinkedIn and saw this Indian guy being promoted every time – and this time to Vice President of The Group! And that brings us to the subject matter of today! I have actually worked together with this gentleman! I will say this for him in truth and sincerity! He has the power and knack of bringing in money to the establishment – because he has many workable good ideas!

But if you ask me if I had my own Company – would I employ him? Money coming in or not – the answer is strong negative that I would not! Because he has the worst record of ‘negativity’ on The Omani Youth – and that stretches even to The Highly Qualified Omanis – because if he had his own way – and he was given Full Authority – NO OMANI WILL BE EMPLOYED BY HIM! Yet his Sponsors keep promoting him – and look at the other way – because he is bringing in money to the establishment! That is all that mattered here! Nothing less or more!

So please forgive me as I go along here!

I can only relate to things and aspects that I have personally experienced! If The Leadership out there are really interested, they should make someone to READ MY BOOKS – especially The Arab Management ones! They are full of Real True Examples of what is going on! Instead of sending the books as Complimentary Gifts to TOP VIPS – and there is ‘not even a slight humanity or decency’ of saying thanks for the gift – looking at a gift horse in the mouth! Why? Because deep down in their consciences and hearts – they know I am speaking the TRUTH ONLY!

They should actually translate the books – and make it Compulsory Reading – for everyone from a Director upwards in The Public Sector – and CERTAINLY even in its current forms to all The Top Management in The Companies – especially Those GMs and MDS in Oman over the last 25 years – and NOTHING has really changed on the ground – as far as they are concerned!

But then as we Arabs like to say – There is no one so blind but with eyes but cannot see; no one so deaf but with ears but cannot hear; and no one so dumb but with a mouth but cannot speak! Or as The Romans say – Those that the gods want to destroy – they make them not see, hear or speak!

Besides, the very pertinent and important point – even if I am not that right or correct in my views and assertions – or perhaps right in some but wrong in others etc. – His Majesty has personally allowed his citizens to have an Independent Thinking and Outlooks– as long as they are able to express their views and why they think so! As a Loyal Citizen, no one can deny me this Right – even if they had ‘killed’ my columns more on a Technicality rather than anything else!

Live Example One.

I wrote about this example before many times! Here was a young Omani Engineering Graduate Lady who was applying in one of the companies I was working as The Head of HR! She had a Degree in Project Management as her Specialisation – and from our own University in SQU. She was applying for a job as a ‘Secretary’ in one of the jobs that we were advertising! That is the point I want to make here. Usually these things are done by Recruitment – and though I had just taken over from an Indian guy – she too Indian was ‘running the show’ behind scenes – which I soon put an end to! You as The Omani HR Head MUST BE INTERESTED FIRST!

She was trying to arrange for a Trade Test in Secretary for The Applicants. I told her – I want to see this girl first! Why as an Engineer she is applying for a Secretarial Job? Typical of their lots she cracked jokes that maybe I was interested because she was pretty – or I know the family as she came from Nizwa? Near Manaa – where many Al Suleimanys came from! She was not Al Suleimany anyway!

When she came – I asked her point blank! Are you serious to apply for this job – yet an Engineering graduate? Shame! What she told me shook me to my very foundations – and I can assure you that I am largely built too! She told me – Her Professors had told her it will be easy to get a good Engineering job – even if she was a woman – because of her specialization! Yet she went to all The Construction and Project Offices companies – and they offered her only Admin, Clerical and Secretarial jobs. All these companies were Indian GMs Managed! One had even the audacity to want her syllabus of the University to see what ‘they teach’! These are the same companies that get always LARGE CONSTRUCTION JOBS from the Government – but taking a qualified educated Omani lady was an issue – because they wanted these jobs for their own home lots – unless there were isolated pressures now and then – and mainly from the outside!

I talked to my MD (Nice American Person) and we took her in Inventory Logistics as a Trainee – the nearest thing that was near Engineering! The point I am making here is ‘people need to be interested and to get involved’ – rather than ‘not wanting to rock the boat’ – or ‘wanting to look nice and good’ to especially ‘foreigners’ – he is our boy! Or girl!

The second incident is nearer home with the same outlooks. My daughter who had an Engineering Degree in Electronics and Electrical – and this time in UK!! Only The MOG companies are ‘more serious’ than the rest! In some of the Company Websites – the First Question is – Sex? Not the Indian joke one of 3 times a week? But real gender! If you reply Female – an Automatic Reply come up – Sorry! These jobs are only for Male Candidates – even The Project Jobs!

It is so easy to live in a fanciful world. By repeating lies over and over again, in the end people start to believe that ‘it is our Education System’ that is at fault! I would agree to a certain extent maybe there should be more emphasis on work attitudes, ethics and focuses – but blaming the Education System goes well to ‘satisfy the Mafias – mainly Indian led – with due apologies here – and certainly The Old Guards who want NO CHANGES – or Rocking The Boat!

I would recommend moving all those Expatriates in Top Positions who have been there for the last 20 years plus and bring in New Blood – if there are no Omani takers! But certainly MORE RISK TAKING of putting Omani ‘that care and feel for their own’ – and are also similarly inclined For More Risk Taking of their subordinate Omanis – and VALUE AND ESTEEM their own more – rather than putting candidates of ‘Our own Boys’ and Girls’ who will do our bidding – or do as we tell them to do!

Also it is High Time to stop all these advertisements in especially English Newspapers of Visitors looking for a job – and a Special Division be created that sends such Applicants back home for such visits under ‘guise of Tourism’ when actually they are coming here for jobs – and silly games being played to deny our own jobs because of such temporary filling of jobs by these lots!

I know I am burning my bridges behind me – and building more enemies at the same time! But no one can do these things except ourselves only! Please REMEMBER His Majesty is sick person – and we should not trouble him by these things that we can do ourselves as a start!

With sincere genuine apologies!

Under interactive guidance of Producer Hatim Abdul Salaam, I was interviewed Live on Tuesday 21st January 2014 from 7 pm to 8 pm with a five minutes break in between. It was Family Programme under the title of Embedding The Habit of Reading For The Youth.

The feedbacks were mainly all positive with one commentator (lady expatriate) commenting it was one of the best programmes she had listened to in a very long time. She is a regular listener to the programmes in FM Oman Radio.

After a brief introduction on myself and how I got into my hobby and passion of writing since 14 years of age, we went deep into the subject.

Areas of Coverage

  • How I became very much interested in reading and writing as a young boy of 14 years of age.
  • My first essay My Most Vivid Dream won a National Award in Tanzania in 19605
  • Author of 10 books – 2 in Arab Management – 2 in Road Safety Awareness and 6 others based on my columns in The Oman Daily Observer since 2003
  • Worked in Human Resources for 25 years in PDO and as Management Consultant for 12 years after Early Retirement in PDO and after my Management Consultancy firm had to close down for financial loss reasons
  • Have always liked writing – from School Magazines, Colleges, PDO, Other Places – and early days in Times of Oman with 2 main articles on Omanisation and Road Traffic issues in Oman
  • Moved to Oman Daily Observer as a Columnist (part time) since March 2003.

Sequences Topics of The Interviews

  • Why to encourage writing and the benefits and advantages of writing
  • Even our Great Prophet PBUH was told `Read’ ‘ – in the Holy Quran – and the advent and start of Islam! See here – Read! In the name of your Lord and Cherisher – Sura 96 – Al Alaq – The Clinging Clot.
  • Travel as far as to China to gain knowledge! – Islamic Hadith
  • How we can encourage more reading especially starting with the young children first
  • The negative effects of Not Writing!
  • Issues in Writing and Reading – and possible solutions
  • Why more support, encouragement and assistance is required – and not to look at the issues narrow minded by looking at it in money terms and profits only!
  • Diverge into English and not concentrate only in Arabic
  • Enlarge the scope of support to not only (fine) arts but also in writing and reading
  • Giving more attention and in valuing more our own Writers, Authors and Columnists
  • Move from only currently looking at outside country (Foreigners) and in concentrating in picture books, poems, cook books, subject topics etc – especially if written and compiled by Foreigners
  • Serious Reading and books that ‘make you think’ need more emphasis and support
  • Encouragement by small incentives for children reading in the family by family themselves – and things like making Home Library – even if start with few books first
  • Others related

Sayings

  • I cannot live without books – Thomas Jefferson
  • I spend a lot of time reading – Bill Gates
  • If you would not be forgotten as soon as you are dead, either write things worth reading – or do things worth the writing – Benjamin Franklin
  • You do not have to burn books to destroy a culture. Just get people to stop reading them – Ray Bradbury
  • Writing is the only profession where no one considers you ridiculous if you earn no money – Jules Renard
  • Life cannot defeat a Writer who is in love with writing – for life itself is a Writer’s love until death – Edna Ferber
  • Many Others!

The Incorrigibles (In)Corruptible!

Corruption 1

Images Corruption – For Demonstration Purposes Only!

For Wednesday – November 20th  2013.

Between Us Only!

The Incorrigibles (In)Corruptible! 

Incorrigible – means somebody or something that is impossible or very difficult to control, correct or reform 

Incorruptible – means not to be bought – not open to bribery – honorable – honest and morally upright

  • Allah cursed the one who pays a bribe, the one who takes it and the mediator between      the two –  The Islamic      Hadith
  • The  son of Adam will not pass away from Allah until he is asked about five      things: how he lived his life, and how he utilized his youth, how did he      earn his wealth, how did he spend his wealth, and what did he do with his      knowledge      – Tirmidhi
  • I will not  let anyone walk through my mind with their dirty feetGhandi

 Corruption 2

Images Corruption – For Demonstration Purposes Only!

There is a running commentary about a certain place also notorious for bribery and corruption that it starts from the moment you board their national airline to the time you check out from your hotel and return – and that it is always advisable to carry small denominations of foreign currencies – especially USA Dollars – the  preferred one – to give out. This is in order to avoid unnecessary hassles – whether real or created – and woe to you if you wish not to engage! Everybody is in corruption – and everybody gives corruption – even if needed or not!

Frankly, I have always suspected that there was some ‘measured levels’ of corruption – most of it implied and hidden – but it was a real shocker to me to find it ‘real and live’ when I had my Consultancy a decade back. I wrote about these things before some years back – and you can find my previous articles here. This is in response to those that have been asking me why I do not write on the subject – like others have done?

Corruption A

Images Corruption – For Demonstration Purposes Only

You see the point is – even if I do – nobody pays attention or read what I write – even if it is worthwhile causes like Road Safety Awareness – where people outside were ready to invest to propagate my book Being The Safe Driver! – if I could chip in US Dollars 5000 – 50% – and they would contribute the rest – to see the message and theme propagated in all the US Television channels in the format of video marketing advertising! I do not know if it is a question of bribery – or that I am just unlucky! Anyway, the titles are there – in my books and in my columns – written over 2 years ago – Being Exemplary In Life! – How Rich Can One Get? – Are You looking For A Bribe? – Taking The High Road! – Investigative Reporting! – Some Will Never Change! and Can You Buy Respects?

Our Late Father always used to lecture us – Do not take anything that does not belong to you – and avoid temptations – living beyond your means – and going for bribery and corruption – even if it is offered to you! Deny – and refuse vehemently! I was watching Al Jazeera Television and it showed – in one of its programmes – of a certain place where if somebody needed a favour from you and came with a bribe – and you denied them – then you were easily targeted for annihilation and destruction in the format of a suicide bomber! That is how serious bribery and corruption has become as one of the major social, domestic, economic and political anathema and disease there!

  • When rich villains have need of poor ones, poor ones may make what price they will      – Shakespeare
  • The accomplice to the crime of corruption is frequently our own indifference – Bess Myerson

I remember one of the Contractors I used to deal with long time back lamenting to me – I have high respects and esteem for you – but either you are a naive person – or stupid (not said!) – and designated to remain always poor in life! How poetic and right he was – but I prefer to be this way only. If you have time – feel free to go through my articles mentioned above – as there is no point in re-inventing the wheel – just to fill in the number of words required for the article!

The real thing that has to be said here is that you cannot pin corruption and bribery to a certain face or character that you will see in life! Sometimes it is a great shocker to find somebody with great features, outlooks and personalities – respectable and polite full gentlemanly – to be involved! It is always a betrayal – and Life Great Learner! Sometimes it is so sad – and unbelievable – but that is life anyway – and how the cookie crumbles!

Some More Sayings on Corruption: –

  • Truly, Allah does not change the condition of a people until they change what is in themselves.- The Holy Quran 13:11
  • The  eyes of the people are watching you!Sierra LeoneFight Against Corruption Banner
  • Corruption  is the abuse of entrusted power for private gain. It hurts everyone who      depends on the integrity of people in a position of authorityTransparency      International
  • The difference between a corrupt and a honest person; the corrupt person has a price and the honest person has valueNeha
  • It is not power that corrupts but fear. Fear of losing      power corrupts those who wield it and fear of the scourge of power      corrupts those who are subject to itAung San Suu Kyi
  • Absolute power corruptsFamous

Happy National Day Greetings!

Take Care!
