Sudan, like most African countries, suffers from media blackout. Most of the news about it is about wars, epidemics, malnutrition or foreign aids, which puts Sudan in a 3rd world countries row, underdeveloped, poor, full of illness and some may go to the extreme of imagining that wild animals live among human beings in the capital of Sudan Khartoum, this image that people may have is incorrect – maybe partially in some parts of Sudan- and that’s exactly what I thought before I moved here.
During the first year in Khartoum, I fell in love with Sudan. The kind of love that makes me prefer living here rather than anywhere else in the whole world. For this reason I have made it my personal goal to promote Sudan worldwide through my books.
In 2006 my first project to promote Sudan “Directory Of Major companies in Sudan” was brought to light. From its title, some readers might think it is a purely commercial book to promote companies – and I do not deny or underestimate this aspect – but it’s much more than that, as it contains thirty five topics about Sudan in a transparent , nonbiased and free manner . The book allows any reader to easily understand Sudan.
Sudan is like the Pearl inside a least appealing shell but trust me, this pearl you definitely should try to see at least once in your life time to enjoy the company of mixed races with different backgrounds, opinion and faith. To taste their traditional food that tastes like nothing you ever tasted before, and to enjoy the beautiful amazing nature of Sudan.
Before you come here, I advise you to read a book by Dr. Badralddin Hashemi, composed in several articles by foreigners who lived in Sudan, in the name of “Sudan with foreign eyes” the same title i choose for this article.
Sudan, like many other African countries, suffers from media blackout. Most of its news is aboutwars, epidemics and malnutrition, makes any one think it is an undeveloped country, full of berberious people , furthermore others could think that Sudanese people lives between predators in the capital Khartoum ,or it suffers an extreme poverty and hunger -which is true in some specific areas – and of course that was my thoughts too,except of wild life animals, before I moved here 15 years ago;but all that changed since the first day I had arrived here, when I really fall in love of this beautiful land, what ends me prefer to live here instead of any other country in the whole world and because of that my dream was to promote Sudan worldwide. Then one of my projects brought into light in 2006, when I published my new book ‘Directory Of Major Companies in Sudan’. From its title readers could think it’s a commercial book –no one can deny this fact- but it has also 35 different, separated and unbiased subjects reflect all aspects about Sudan.
Sudan like a nice pearl inside a huge shell. But for now I can tell that this pearl is one of the most precious astonish pearls in the whole world, and you must visit it for at least one time to enjoy its unique charm, to eat its delicious culinary foods and roaming its wonderful nature.
I recommend for you a very valuable book called “Sudan in foreign eyes“ for Dr. BadrAldeenHashemi , contains many articles translated from many resources ,
