Celebrating Our Sultan’s Return – A sense of belonging kind of love.

The Sultanate of Oman has given me so much. When I came to this country 3 years ago I didn’t know what to expect. My mind was blank but this beautiful country has managed to turn a blank  canvas into a colorful collage and Oman is Oman because of our Sultan, the visionary and compassionate leader His Majesty Sultan Qaboos bin Said. This post is a tribute to him, a celebration of his safe return. He is back in the country after an absence of eight months (as he was under medical care in Germany)

This morning (at work) we walked into a celebration. the nation is celebrating our Sultan’s return in many different ways and we joined the festivities with songs, speeches and of course food.

For a change food was not the hero… His Majesty Sultan Qaboos was and rightfully so. No marketing campaign, no 360 degree activation, no PR brigade… We salute the ‘father of modern Oman’, whose 45 years of reign is a living testimony to what leadership should be; what a leader should truly be!
