The New Book – Speak The Truth Only Always!

Two Samples of The Works!

M.04          Open Forums – Or Entrapments?

When I was working for this Oil Company at one time there was this Open Forum that anyone Staff – even Locals – could write to The Top Guys in Shell International in London and The Hague!

The Local Management were ‘encouraged’ to allow their people also to ‘contribute’. In hindsight, I think it was more an ‘An Entrapment’ to see who of the local guys more active and vocal – with ‘Yours Truly’ on board!

I used to raise many issues related to Omanisation (Localisation), Training and Development and Recruitment and Job Opportunities for The Omani Youth! This really incensed the Local Admin Director who kept on saying that as HR you are in Management and ‘supposed to defend ‘Management’!

I retorted that I was not ‘attacking any Management of any sort’ and that as HR was ‘The Conscience Keeper’ of The Establishment – and that ‘freedom of expression’ was guaranteed to us in ‘The Forums’ I had every right to participate!

This made him more mad by my obstinacy and vocalism! I knew I was not going to be promoted being under him anyway – or even get a higher bonus – so why the heck? Let me enjoy myself! They could not fire me anyway because the ‘Laws of The Country’ protected us (then!) and also I was doing my job quite well – with exceptional of this added irritant – especially to him!

Like many (Office) Dictators, he thought I was doing this especially as ‘I was planning to instigate an uprising to overthrow him! L L !

One day he came to my Office to try a different approach to say even if he wanted to promote me he could not – because of this element! As he ‘heard’ I was doing a good job otherwise!

Anyway, I stopped contributing when I heard people ‘outside the Offices’ talking about this – and when one in Nigeria wrote to me to put his case of Shell causing environmental disasters in Warri and The Nile Delta! I realized things were turning sour and deadly – and soon after Locals were ‘no longer allowed’ to participate due to ‘pressures beyond their control and coming from Outside The Company!

 *******

M.05          The British Police Officer (in Oman)!

He was not in a Police Vehicle but though Police Registered the Peugeot 504 – always white colour – and I was behind him in my Toyota Crown when he went through a No Entry sign near The Offices Bank in those days. He came across to me on the other side of the road – again crossing a No Entry Sign as he blocked me as I was coming in!

He was fuming mad – and breathing heavily? He asked me why did I blow my car horn at him? As he was in Police Uniform? I said meekly to him – because as a Police Officer you had violated Traffic Rules – and you should know better! Whilst all the time putting a ‘brave front’ whilst shaking all inside! He wanted my Driving License and my PDO card. I was at first reluctant – but then I gave him.

He told me he was a ‘Personal Friend’ of a Top Public Official (also British!) and he will tell the MD about me! He wrote down my full name – my Personnel Number – and my Department!

Later on the good MD called me in his Office for a private chat – his good advice to be careful because ‘these guys (then!) could have you arrested for several days – or weeks even – without taking you to Court – even if you were right! It is his words against your – and guess whom The Judge will believe! He said tome things of ‘reality’ which even today I will not be able to put down here! L !

I found it strange and odd when he (The Police Official) said to me – As Officers in case of Emergencies – we can break the Laws! I do not know if going to the Bank was an emergency – unless it was only for him! L!

 

My 34th New Book! Speak The Truth Only Always!

 

 Speak The Truth Only Always!

New Book – 34th!

34C - Speak The Truth

34A - Speak The Truth

Front Cover!

Book Introduction

  • “O you who believe!  Have fear of God, and be among the Truthful.” (The Holy Quran 9:119)
  • Three things cannot be long hidden: the sun, the moon, and the truth – Buddha
  • The truth is rarely pure and never simple – Oscar Wilde
  • Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind! – Dr. Seuss

This is my 34th book and is a collection of all my articles that had appeared after my last book incidentally titled About My Life! My Autobiography! www.createspace.com/5537092

The focus and theme here is – Always To Speak The Truth Only! At whatever costs and repercussions to one’s life – as has always been The Path that I had chosen for myself! All my books, columns and writings are synonymous with this – and can be authenticated and given credence and proof of this!

My sister in law Bi. Aisha bint Saif – PBUH – died on July 26th 2015 after a series of medical complications – and this too was a stimuli for me to write the book! See Poor Reception on Funeral here!

I have this time added many of My Opinion Articles from my website www.majidsn.com

I hope you will like reading the book and on my other works – www.myownmajid.com

About The Book!

32A - Front FC  32C - FC

* Writing is the heart, soul and life of an Author! Simply no one can take it away from him or her – but God only! – Anon.

* Writing is the only profession where no one considers you ridiculous if you make no money! – Jules Renard.

A Full Colour Book!

This is his 30th book is and is a Bird’s Eye View and a Summary of all his 33 Books to date – including The Recent Newer Ones and also The Older Ones too! A One-Place Reference Point on all his 33 Books!

Please see also his books website (main) www.myownmajid.com 6 books are on Arab Management – 3 are on Road Safety Awareness – and the rest assorted topics – but mainly from his Columns – Between Us Only! At The Workplace! The column had run for over 14 years till end 2013.

Topics covered vary from different aspects in Social, Economic, Family, Political and Current Affairs; Society, Human Resources, Management, Offices, Training & Development, Education, Society issues; Critical Sensitive Topics (that many would fear to touch even by a long pole!) ; Omanisation (Localisation) etc.

Various subjects that would interest from the student to The Professor; from The Young Generations to The Older. And from The Man in The Street to The Leadership – there is something here for someone somewhere in the book!

Images have also been added in the new books – which was a point raised by Readers before! Some of the topics have been made out as stories, but the messages coming out are openly vividly and crystal clear to all, in many cases that comes out outright and facing the Reader without any doubt or innuendos.

His style of writing is speaking to you directly from his heart – and as if knowing you for quite a long time – and using personal experiences and exposures (and trusted reliable sources!) in coming across in his points and assertions! A unique definitely unseen style before!

There is no doubt that one day his books will be Collectible Literary Items with the passing of time. Highly recommended and to get your early bird copy today.

Book is also available in eBook and Kindle. More information and details here at www.myownmajid.com
