1001 Arabian Nightmares: Inspired by True Events & Other Lies

 
9781481202626: 1001 Arabian Nightmares: Inspired by True Events & Other Lies

Listen! Would you be interested in reading a few pages from a diary of a terrorist? Seriously! That is if you, like many others, believe that anyone who is from the Middle East is a potential terrorist. On the contrary I found that the Middle East is a wonderful place where laughter is in abundance. You just got to explode, I mean explore by traveling through various countries of the Middle East. Not only an exhilarating life experience, you will also discover mystery, adventure and plenty of humour. No time, no problem! I have done it for you. The last few years have been difficult for the Arab nations. The world seemed to have latched on to its stereotypical image without understanding Arab’s fascinating culture. Arabia is truly a fun place. It’s a secret that needs to be let out: Arabs have a deep-rooted sense of humour and it exists in their daily life. Let me explain. I know there are millions of people who can’t possibly believe what I’m telling them: that Arabs both have and appreciate a sense of humour. I know that the press has convinced you otherwise. And they will. That is their job and it helps them to sell newspapers. The only way to bring in a balanced perspective is to look closely at their humour. A good and clean sense of humour to enjoy and not rude or offensive to be upsetting! Come on, don’t be so serious, and smile. Did you know that humour in the Arab society is not recent or out of necessity? It has been in existence for centuries as an integral part of their culture. Way back in the Middle Ages, Mullah Nasruddin was one of the great humorists of Arab history. He has thousands of tales, my favourite is: When a ruler said to Nasruddin, “Mullah, all the great rulers of the past had honorific titles with the name of God in them. There was, for instance, ‘God-Gifted’, and ‘God-Accepted’, and so on. How about some such name for me?” Nasruddin thought only for a moment and said, “God Forbid.” See what I mean: subtle. I believe that the funniest humour is the one that you experience for yourself. So I packed my bags and travelled all through Arabia. I liked it so much that I stayed there for several years. Why? Because I wanted more to get past: A priest, a rabbi and a mullah walk into a bar. The barman says - “What is this, a joke?” I needed something fresh, original and personal. Did I get it? Well, I’d let you be the judge of that. Come along on an adventurous journey with me to the fascinating world of Arabia and experience a unique brand of humour that you would not find on the Internet. Not that I don’t trust the God Own Official Guide to Locating Everything (Google). Through these short, humorous stories I invite you on a journey of humour, mystery and adventure to the amazing Middle East.

About the Author:

Born in India, educated in England with a Ph.D. degree in Chemical Engineering, Narendra is a citizen of Canada and has lived in India, England, Canada, Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and the USA. He resides in the USA & Canada. He has traveled to more than eighty countries covering Western, Central & Eastern Europe, Central Asia, South-East Asia, the Far East, the Middle East, South America, North America and Africa. Narendra and the Hindu God, the Lord Krishna has something in common—they were both born in the town of Mathura (India), albeit about a few thousand years apart. He attended schools in India, England and Canada (Narendra, not the Lord Krishna) and studied at the Universities of Agra & IIT Roorkee (both in India), Nottingham (England) and Calgary (Canada). Witnessing six wars (4 in India and 2 in the Middle East) and travelling to over 80 countries has allowed him to gain an in-depth knowledge of various and diverse cultures. Inspired by true events and human rights issues his writing offers insight into cultural differences, age-old traditional values and behaviour dilemma that coexist in the vast diversity and different races of the world. Nomad by nature and apt on taking up challenges he travelled through many countries building his repertoire of dozens of stories. Published author of 8 novels and 3 help guides, he has written 8 more novels and 2 more help guides that are to be published in the near future. Although richly influenced by his foreign travels, Narendra finds his inspiration from his life experiences and through his novels invites you to join him on a journey of life, adventure, mystery and intrigue.
