System Failure! Not Recognising and Valuing Our Own Writers!

  • Life cannot defeat a Writer who is in love with writing , for life itself is a Writer’s love until deathEdna Ferber
  •  Simply calling yourself as wise men does not make you as such. People will judge you by your character and behavior only! – Famous

It is a shame to see that this conference was not used to incorporate All The Omani Writers, Columnists and Authors.

A good Indian friend called me to want to know more (maybe he knew already?) – but I replied to him that I did not!

If these sites will not make an impact – nothing else will!

Or is it crimes because we write in English?

These things of rivalry, jealousy, envy, polarization – and not recognizing and valuing our own – need to end!

I wrote to The Oman Daily Observer – who print my columns – and whom I have given complimentary gift copies to All in The Features Columns – including the Top Guys too! NO ONE RESPONDED – as usual!

It is a shame that these kind of things are happening in our country now – after all the things we have seen live happening in others – starting with just a school graffiti!

Bloody Shame on us!

Now we hear of Angola banning Islam and breaking down of mosques!

What is next?

As an Omani – Arab blood and Muslim – I hold my head down low with shame! Real Shame!

Maybe we do not meet the mark because we write in English? Maybe!

Front Wipe My Tears

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.

An Open Letter From Me! Reply

Front Wipe My Tears

An Open Letter To You – My Reader (Fan).

From My Heart!

This is an Open Letter – and especially directed to those that consider me as ‘Trouble’ – or ‘Adversary’!

  • If one of you sees something wrong, let him change      it with his own hand; if he cannot, then raise voice and speak out against      it; if he cannot do even that, then dislike or hate it in your heart, but      that is the lowest degree of faith – The Hadith
  • I have a right to my anger, and I don’t want anybody telling me I      shouldn’t be, and that something’s wrong with me because I get angry – Maxine Walters
  • Life is too short to stress yourself with people who don’t even      deserve to be an issue in your life
  • No need for revenge. just sit back and wait. Those      who hurt you will eventually screw up themselves and if you are lucky, God      will let you watch – Good Karma
  • Don’t bother about people who judge you without knowing you …      Remember, dogs bark if they don’t know the person
  • Some people will love to hate you for all the wrong reason but they’re      not worth your attention

Life is very awkward and strange. People do bad things to you – insult your intelligence and integrity – ridicule you as a person – and expect you to remain quiet – and do nothing about it! Turn the other cheek! Let me poke out the other eye – and please do not turn or squirm while I am doing this to you – or you will make me more annoyed and angry with you!

Why should you act differently? I am doing the same to the others – and they take it quietly! Why should you be different? You are a very difficult person. Too many chips on your shoulders. Who do you think you are? You are too much!

Well – perhaps I am different! Our Late Father brought us up to stand our grounds – and never to be scared or afraid! Speak the truth always. And let no one – simply no one – to treat you badly – or try to ridicule you – or make you feel small or inferior!

Frankly, I am the easiest person to handle. Treat me with respect and kind words – and I will try to bring the moon to you! I simply do not allow anyone to rough shod and treat me badly – and yes I react very badly – after trying very hard to remain collected and quiet – patient and tolerant – and even caution and warn you in the process.

But if repeated incursions and Red Lines are crossed – yes I come charging in! That is me – Take Me – Or Leave Me!

I’m selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle. But if you can’t handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don’t deserve me at my best – Marilyn Monroe

Some More Sayings –

  • Never allow someone to be your priority while      allowing yourself to be their option – Nina Potts-Jefferies
  • Only trust someone who can see three things in you:      The sorrow behind your smile; The love behind your anger; and the reason      behind your silence
  • Life cannot defeat a Writer who is in love with writing , for life      itself is a Writer’s love until death  – Edna Ferber
  • Say what is true, although it may be bitter and displeasing to people      – Baihaqi
  • If you do not tell      the truth about yourself you cannot tell it about other people – Virginia      Woolf
  • Staying quiet doesn’t mean I have nothing to say, it means I don’t      think you are ready to hear my thoughts – James McCosh
  • Treat others as you want them to treat you because what goes around;      comes around! – Arthur Wing Pinero
  • What the public criticizes in you, cultivate it, it is you – Jean Concleau
  • I’m only responsible for what I say not for what you understand
  • Never put the key to your happiness in someone      else’s pocket!

The Question To Ask Here – Did you give reason – or contribute – for me to react this way? Remember – it takes Two to Tango!  I am not a mad person – to tango alone! Need for deep self analysis and conscience review!

Many Thanks!

Best Wishes and Regards,

Majid Al Suleimany

Front Wipe My Tears

  • I cannot live without books – Thomas Jefferson
  • I spend a lot of time reading – Bill Gates
  • http://www.createspace.com/4304972 – For Direct Orders – Few copies with the Author

Wipe My Tears! has been adapted from Majid Al Suleimany’s successful newspaper columns in The Oman Daily Observer titled Between Us Only!. Utilizing the very best touching emotional based 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.

Wipe My Tears! 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 book follows up on the success of the previous books and furthers the idea of private talks between friends on matters that many are too scared to touch! Often times delving into sensitive critical topics that aren’t always sweet, this enlightening book uses a clear and elegant prose to explore social evils in the society as well as their light hearted counterparts. Covering a variety of priceless topics, this wonderful collection of articles gives readers everywhere a glimpse into the issues that are prevalent in today’s society.

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 organized by Al Suleimany offer a universal appeal because, in his view, society and family are quite similar.

  • 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
  • Whenever you read a good book, it is like the author is right there, talking to you – Jack Handy

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, color, 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.

Yet Between Us Only! Wipe My Tears! – is not without controversy. For readers who wish to study Arabic (and Islamic) approaches to the Middle East, the West, and other religions, the book makes excellent references relating to the post-September 11 world. The increases in religious fundamentalism and radicalization in society, and the fact that many youngsters are on board with these aspects, are also taken to task.

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.

Majid Al Suleimany is a writer and management consultant based in the Middle East.

Between Us Only!

The USA Literary Excellency Award!

It is from the womb of art that criticism was born – Charles Baudelaire

Any authentic work must start an argument between the artist and his audience – Rebecca West.

The US Review of Books connects worldwide Authors and Publishers with Professional Reviewers. It is an independent free running body – and the books and Reviewers are chosen at random order.

Pleased to inform you my Readers and Fans that my Arab Psychology Book has won the prestigious  US Gold Seal of Literary Excellency Award!

My books USA Trafford Publishers had sent me this note – which is very good news on my Arab Management book – Psychology of Arab Management Thinking! – Context and Perspectives. My book had won The Gold Seal of Literary Excellency Award – and was shortlisted for the prestigious Eric Hoffer Award.

The mere fact it had reached this stage – and competed against books from well known world Authors and Writers – and some of them being great Researchers, Professors and great Literary Artists is an achievement in itself – as it was my first Arab Management book! More information at www.myownmajid.com – I am pleased to share with you on our success!

MUSCAT, Oman – In his new book “Psychology of Arab Management Thinking: Arabian Management Series” (published by Trafford Publishing), author and analyst Majid Al Suleimany explores the management styles that he believes helped lead to the events of Arab Spring.

“This is a no-punch-held-back book,” Al Suleimany says. “It critically reviews and assesses with deep soul searching analysis the management styles and approaches of the Arab world, especially in Gulf Cooperation Countries (GCC) vis-à-vis the international companies operating in the international arena.”

        B - PsychologyUSA Golden Seal

An excerpt from “Psychology of Arab Management Thinking”:

“As Arabs work is worshipped in our Religion – so what went wrong here? Especially in Management circles? Why are we behind the rest of the world, despite all our riches, potentials and resources?

This is a no punch held back, no barrels held, no stiff, no frills play – but to be as blunt, frank, open, honest and sincere as far as possible – so the book can be a learning experience and process for this generation – and future to come – especially after the recent Arab Spring uprisings!”

Al Suleimany knows his book fills a critical need. “Little is known of Arab management styles,” he says, “especially as written from the inside by an Arab himself as an experienced professional local HR and management expert, advisor and counselor.”

“Psychology of Arab Management Thinking” – By Majid Al Suleimany

The Book Review – The book was reviewed by one John E. RoperUSA – Quote www.theusreview.com/reviews/Psychology-Suleimany.html

www.trafford.com/08-0889

“It is only by building on existing strengths, and moving forwards on established capabilities that economic maturity can be achieved and rising living standards maintained.”

Writers approach their craft with a variety of motivations. Some search for fame, others for fortune, and still others because spinning words together is one of the few things they are really good at. Some, though, write because what they have to say is burning inside them, and the only release is to share with others what has so inflamed their emotions. Such is the case with the author, whose passion for his people and his culture has driven him to speak out against the problems within Arab management practices so that, as he says, he can one day tell his grandchildren that by writing books he did something about them.

The author approaches his topic as an insider. Having worked extensively in the global business environment and in human resources in particular, both with Arab and international leadership, he has seen firsthand the shortsightedness, prejudice, paranoia, and autocratic tendencies of many Arab managers as well as the unfortunate fact that motivation and morale are frequently higher among Arab employees when someone other than one of their own countrymen is in charge. These observations have gnawed at him, and he questions not only why the situation within the corporate world is like this but also what can be done about it.

As an Omani, the Author offers great insight into his own country’s management issues, but he is quick to point out that many of the observations he makes can be applied to businesses throughout the Arab world. While the subject matter of this book will mainly appeal to readers approaching it from an Arab perspective, students of international business can also learn a lot from the author’s research – Unquote

What The Book Had Said!

As aforementioned, the book is about Arab Management issues and aspects – with personal experiences, exposures and examples of the Author stretching over 35 years experiences in Management and Human Resources – and as a Consultant, Advisor and Expert for over the past 10 years in a number of companies.

Continued – Author’s Note – For a long time now, I have been putting off the idea of writing this book – though it had been on my mind for a long time now. The mere idea of writing this book scared me to bits and pieces – for many valid and pertinent reasons.

I hope you will enjoy the book. I have tried to be as frank, open, forthright, honest, sincere and genuine as I can – as Readers who know me can give credence and credibility to me and will vouch and authenticate my works.

I have not spared myself, so there is just for it to be honest, sincere, genuine and hard hitting – sparing no one. Just No One!

Take Care!

About The Book – Briefly!

• I read your article – it made me cry! I gave it to the wife – and she too cried with me! – Indian CEO. • Real visionary and with great realistic foresight – American CEO. • The article was a great eye-opener for me! – British CEO. • Great experiences, ideas and thoughts! – Senior Public Official! • My heart just broke out – and I cried out loud! – Omani Lady Fan

This is the Author’s 10th book – and book 6 in the Between Us Only! series. The book follows up on the success of the previous books and furthers the idea of private talks between friends on matters that many are too scared to touch!

Often times delving into sensitive critical topics that aren’t always sweet, this enlightening book uses a clear and elegant prose to explore social evils in the society as well as their light hearted counterparts.

Covering a variety of priceless topics, this wonderful collection of articles gives readers everywhere a glimpse into the issues that are prevalent in today’s society.

Although the book is based mainly on Oman and The GCC, many of the topics are of universal application and appeal – with the increasing lack of tolerance, radicalization and fundamentalism in society.

The book also carries many family, offices and human based articles that are applicable to us all – as bottom line we are the same human being in that same a person – with the same needs, wants and fears – devoid of race, religion, creed and color! Many of the articles are highly emotive and heart rendering – and that is the reason of adopting the title of Wipe My Tears!

Majid Al Suleimany has over twenty-five years of experience as a human resources specialist and over ten years of experience as a management and human resources consultant, expert, and advisor. For the past ten years, he has written weekly columns in The Oman Daily Observer, an English daily, which has led to five  published books based off of his columns.

** Thank you for informing me to collect copies of my Road Safety New Book (which still remained unsold after 3 months!) and as per the prompt to come and collect – like last time!

I hope you have removed the xxxyyzz shop price tags. I did not check last time you returned my books and gave them as Complimentary Gifts to VIPs.

I wish you all the very best with intrusion of Ebooks in the market and people can now order directly. Unfortunately the old ways of doing things in Oman are now having doors closing in slowly with the advent of time and latest developments.

Plus the sad fact that  there are book sites that offer more than 50000 free books to download. I paid 20 pounds in UK for one of the books only 5 years ago!

 If I were in this business I would be very nice and kind to my Customers especially Locals because of changing times and people having long memories. You can see for yourself live now on TV that people are changing fast….even here sadly!

Again goodbye and all the best. Byee

Remarks – This is the sad fate of Local Authors who write in English – and for some who may consider some of his books to be controversial – thus not to be promoted!

Regards,

Majid Al Suleimany

** These books were sold very well at the other Bookshop I am dealing with!
