Legacy and imagination: Omanis consider what the future holds after Sultan Qaboos

  • Oman News

Rashid Al Badi was 5 years old when he first heard of Sultan Qaboos.

It was July 1970. He was playing in the water canal on his father’s farm with a toy boat made of banana leaf when his cousin came with news from Muscat.

When his cousin left, his father told him, “Today, there is a new ruler, Sultan Qaboos.”

“What does that mean?” asked the boy.

“It means now we can build houses, we can own land, and there will be schools,” his father replied.
