SHARJAH: The initiative to commemorate the year 2018 as the “Year of Zayed”, to mark the birth of the centenary of the late Founding Father of the Nation Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan, has received overwhelming response from the Emiratis as well as expatriates who are planning year-long activities to pay their respect to their beloved leader.

The declaration of “Year of Zayed” has generated great interest among the residents in knowing more about the visionary leader. This was quite evident as the books on Sheikh Zayed have been in great demand at the Sharjah International Book Fair (SIBF 2017).

A book that is creating waves is “Father of Our Nation”. Published by Motivate Publishing, the book was launched at SIBF 2017. The book is a collection of inspirational quotes from Sheikh Zayed. A man who fought for unity, preached equality, transformed the UAE from separate sheikhdoms into one of the most developed countries in the region and the world.

Mohammad Tariq, Key Accounts and Administration Manager at Motivate Publishing, said that the true homage to Sheikh Zayed would be to learn from his values and wisdom. The declaration to commemorate the “Year of Zayed” has provided everyone an opportunity to do so.

“Sheikh Zayed’s words are as relevant today as they were during his lifetime. This book celebrates the thoughts and ideas that make Sheikh Zayed the remarkable figure he is. Featuring rare historical and contemporary photographs, the book covers the themes of environment, heritage, education, progress, leadership, nation, values and women. It preserves the wise words of the remarkable leader.”

“Sheikh Zayed: Life And Times – Through the Lens of Noor Ali Rashid”, providing an insight into the life of the late President of the UAE and Ruler of Abu Dhabi, is yet another title popular at the SIBF 2017.

The pictorial book showcases rare photographs of the leader captured by the late Royal Photographer Noor Ali Rashid documenting the life and work of Sheikh Zayed since 1966. Besides the official recording of historic moments, the photographer was there to capture less formal events as well, thus providing a glimpse into the life and times of the esteemed leader.

“This book has continued to be in demand ever since it was published first in 2001. The latest edition available at the stand also has a chapter on funeral of Sheikh Zayed,” said Tariq.

At the SIBF, the publishers are offering big discount on both the titles. Price of the book ‘Father of Our Nation’ has been reduced to Dhs70 from Dhs95. Similarly, the book ‘Sheikh Zayed: Life And Times – Through the Lens of Noor Ali Rashid’, which is usually sold for Dhs185 is being sold for Dhs135.
