DUBAI: His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President, Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, announced he will issue a book titled “Kessaty” (My Story) in which he talks about 50 stories he experienced in 50 years.

Sheikh Mohammed described the book as an incomplete biography.

In one of the chapters of the book, he tells the story of the famous bilateral meeting that took place between the late Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan and Sheikh Rashid Bin Saeed Al Maktoum in 1968 on a sandy hill in Sadira near Sameeh.

“In the northern tent something happened that does not happen in Arab countries and will not happen for decades to vome. Sheikh Zayed asked Sheikh Rashid to be the president of the new Union, but instead Sheikh Rashid smiled, shook his rosary and said, “You are the President.”

Sheikh Mohammed also shares a story about the teachings of his late father Sheikh Rashid Bin Saeed Al Maktoum which contributed towards painting his personality.

He says, “Before the age of eight, my father taught me how to live in the desert along with its vermin and mules, with its wolves and deer, and with its coldness and heat. After eight, he taught me how to live in the city with humans.”

In another chapter, Sheikh Mohammed tells the story of his visit to the Libyan city of Tripoli. He says, “We were once in a crowded square in Tripoli and the crowds were informed of our presence. Knowing this, the crowd surrounded our car hysterically and welcomed us warmly. The car began to lose balance because of their rush.”
