After Compliments;

From My Heart!

You simply cannot change the hearts. minds and souls of people that are jealous and envious of others – and some that I would even go far to say are polarised influenced and racialists – even if they pretend that they are not!

Some centres are well known for their prejuidiced and narrow minded outlooks! Trying to change these people is like banging your head against brick walls – it only gets swollen and red for no added advantage or profit!

When I had designed this website – with the help of my Daughter Engineering Graduate – it was not intended to compete with the bigger NGO ones. It was merely to support my book Being The Safe Driver! Behind The Wheel! The New Road Safety Book – www.createspace.com/4097374

Being The Safe Driver - Front

Oh My God!this-final-book-cover-300x21511.jpg

I was very much hurt and pained by receiving some comments like – Do not expect any kind of support from us because you are not a NGO – and we do not support Individual Schemes like yours! I have also tried to keep in contact and in touch with some High Profile VIPs – but have been largely sidelined, marginalised and ignored!

They only want to remain alone in the news! Nobody else to come in!

I do not know how long these bad hearts and approaches will continue – these jealousies and envies?? It is a bloody shame – a disaster.

I did not write the book or create this website for ‘favours’ from anyone! Trust me when saying this!

I did it because I believed in the cause very strongly. It is my contribution to The Society – to give what I can give and afford to give! If some want to think differently – they are welcome to do so. No one can stop one to think what one wants – or intends to think or do!

Besides I am a 65 years old Omani – retired and with minimum pension income. I wrote the book after seeing this poor young Omani girl at 28 years die tragically with 9 members of her family in a terrible horrific accident!

And seeing the horrible tragic everyday news of Road Accidents fatalities and injuries – everyday in the news! I said – I am an Author! I should write on this! The book idea then formed – and my contribution to Society.

I am not HSE – nor an Engineer. It was the most difficult book for me to write – over 6 months! It is a subject I am not familiar with – and hardly know!

May Allah God Guide us all in the Right Path and Way – Amin Amen

I was very much pained and hurt by some crude remarks received by some after the books were published (USA and India Version). What for? And why all these things? Because it was me who published the book? And the website?

Yet these same peoples go to pray – as if butter will not melt in their mouths!

I am not after Fame and Popularity – if I were I would not be in this position today.

As a result I will not update this website with the Latest News – because my work is already done. Appreciate it or not!

Cover the others as much as you want! I am not jealous nor am I bitter – but my conscience (and heart!) is clean.

Allah God Be With You All – Amin Amen

But it is still so sad and disappointing – that is why we will never succeed or progress. The jealousies and envies will always control our minds and thoughts – and the things that we do! Thinking always Inside The Box and Can Never See The Bigger Picture!

Shame really! Bloody Shame!

Regards,

Majid Al Suleimany – June 16th 2013.

Book with stories of accident victims pitches for Road Safety!

Book with stories of accident victims pitches for Road

Safety!

 
Majid al Suleimany
 
 
Muscat Dailt – March 18, 2013
 
Muscat –

It is arguably the first time in the country that several heart-wrenching real life stories of road accident victims have been put together in a book to tackle road safety issues and educate people on the consequences of reckless driving.

A retired human resources consultant, Majid al Suleimany has collected more than 60 real life stories of road accident victims and their families for the 450-page book Being the Safe Driver.
Published in the US, the book looks at the rising number of road accidents and also provides technical advice from experts. “With PDO’s help I was able get and narrate several accidents with a detailed view on what caused the accidents. The book has views from a number of HSE (health, safety and environment) experts on how to be a safe driver. And I have also quoted verses from the Q’uran to show that putting other people’s lives in danger for no apparent reason is not acceptable in Islam,” said Suleimany.

He said this makes Being the Safe Driver a good handbook. “We don’t look at the accidents from an emotional level. We only see statistics in newspapers and news clipping about one more accidents. The day we start associating with it emotionally and putting faces to victims, we will be more responsible on roads.” To take a closer look and see the consequences in person, the author visited hospitals and was distraught to see people maimed for life. “It was so emotional to see children and adults with broken limbs and burnt bodies. There were so many young boys with debilitating injuries – who otherwise should have been looking at their future – languishing in hospital wards.”

He said there should be a programme to show the public what consequences the victims and their families are facing. “It could be either through documentaries or planned hospital tours.”

Suleimany is already in talks with a couple of people who could translate the book into Arabic. “The plan is to go to schools and give them a presentation on road safety and leave some books in their library.”

This is Suleimany’s sixth book, and he is expecting to launch another two very soon.

“I plan to do an official launch of Being the Safe Driver and my other two upcoming books sometime in April. This would be the first time that an Omani author is releasing three books at a time,” he said
