If you are over 30, your chances are reduced. Over 50, you are almost a dead man. Over 60, you should plan the funeral, no chance. 

That is the trend of the Somalis so far. 

May Allah give Xudaydi naxariis.

The old man had a long life, Godspeed.

Are you saying if this plague spreads in our homeland (Allah forbid) the Somali peninsula will become a land without parents and grandparents, basically a nation of children, run by children, and for children?

Don't worry about Galbeedi and Oodweyne, they will be around. They have basically barricaded themselves in their bedrooms and forbade their wives and children from invading their sanctuary. Odayaashaa wax ka naf jecel

Holac,

you really scare us this time. I thought we Somalis had stronger immunes. Some were even suggesting that Africans may fare better against Covid-19.

I am worried about Oodweyne,  because UK could be another Italy in few days. Besides, Europe is were most Somalis are dying. Nations with bad leaders like Boris and Trump are in dire situation.

Allah ha u naxarristo Ustaad Xudaydi.

Here in my home , I have a volume 8  edition of " Bidhaan" a Somali international journal published by Mcalister collage with Ahmed Samatar and other like minded Somalis. It was 2008 and Ustaad Hudaydi had a chapter narrating his life and times. I even use some of  those quotes here in SOL.

 

In memory of Hudaydi, let me write here some excerpts of that interview.

AIS: What form of transportation you took from Eden? a plane?

Hudaydi: No. I took a boat to little coastal fishing village of Maydh. during those days there was a cohort of young educated and professional somali men who dominated social life in hargeisa. to cut down their uppity prominence, they were exiled to the remote outpost of dayaha, near Erigaabo. Among them were Abdisalam Hassan, Hassan cali Henry, ku cadeye and nine.

AIS: who exiled them ? the colonial British?

Hudaydi: No. They were posted by the new political and business class who became somewhat envious of this educated groups popularity .The assignment was to make this cohorts teach at the new intermediate school in Dayaha. At the Maydh , a custom man sent a word of this young man of maddening skill.The Dayaha associates sent me a vehicle (a nice Landrover) immediately. When I arrived , they requested me to9 arrange a play. The day was coincided with Eid celebrations and a football game against Burco. 

AIS: How long were you in Djibouti?

Hudaydi: I had spent seven years in the 1960s. Later I will live in Djibouti another six years.

AIS: When did you return in Somalia? 

Hudaydi: in fact, the French throw me out and I returned to Hargeisa some what unwittingly. THere I put togethera play with the title " Macal cume". I drafted a number of school teachers  to participate. Among them Muhamed Hadraawi, Faisal Cumar Mushteeg, Mohamed Mooge and Abu Shiraa. 

AIS: Who were the singers and musicians in Hargeisa at this  time?

Hudaydi: this was late 1960s. Among them were individuals of exceptional abilities. Maandeeq, Magool, Guddudo Arwo, Saynab Bahsan, Farhiya Ali, Young Hibo Nuura, Mohamed Saleeban, Mohamed Mooge, Mohamed Ahmed, Mohamed Yusuf and musicians like Ali Fayruus, Mohamed SaidAli Dheere, Abdialhi Haamari and Mohamed Afweyne.

AIS: Compared to other Somali Fuun centres like Mogadishu and Djibouti, how good was the talent pool in Hargeisa?

Hudaydi: Generally speaking, when it comes to rhythm and therefore music, the southern Somalis by far were superior. Just think of the fantastic Huseen Banjuuni and Ahmed Naji , if not the second generation headed by the breathtaking Oud master , Daud Ali Mashaf. But, when you compare poetic composition and Luuq (singing)northern Somalis and Hargeisa was captivating. 

AIS: In the 1960s, how would you characterize the relationship between art and politics of independence?

Hudaydi: A few years after 1960, the nationalist fever, which was high, begun to sag. It felt as if we entered post honeymoon period in which what was seemed like an era of limitless possibilities was disappearing. one could hear some anti-regime Heesayn (Song).

AIS: What was the central points of disapproval by the artists?

Hudaydi: In the beginning the main issue was rather petty.it related to a perception among some that the distribution of the ministerial appointments overlooked some kin groups. But one could see the potential for greater danger. , the beginning of the divisive manipulation of communal identity by individual greedy for self promotion. Still , this feeling was marginal. among the citizens. and many of us saw that way 

AIS: if, you assert, " self promotion " by the politically ambitious, why do you think the democratic and constitutional order laster only nine years (1960-1969).?

Hudaydi: From my prospective, i think it come down to number of key elements : exaggerated expectations and a craving for unearned material privilege that began to blunt the daring and honourable creative mind and spirit.This was an early warning: if we, as a people, didn't see decolonization as the opening chapter of a long journey of hard work and nation building, the future will be a massive disappointment.

Few were paying attention but the majority were intoxicated with easy pickings delivered by the new political order, and particularly, the arrival generous foreign aid. All in all a normalizing of of a corrupt small mindedness started to eclipse social art (FUUN) that moved listyerners to in to civic belonging. President Aadan Ade and A/risaq Haji hussen tried hard to resist , by example in leadership, a rising imbecility( Garaad Xumo) and equation of manliness ( Raganimo) with looting of the commons.

 

Anyway, these words of unearned material gain and expecting  foreign aid mentioned by Ustaad Hudaydi still persist among consecutive Somali leaders and generation. This are the time tested words I learned from Ustad Hudaydi.

Will try to post more tomorrow, InshAllah.

Allah ha u naxariisto.

Tallaabo,

Lool, you got me there, mate. I have been feeling just fine, It just that being cooped up in the house on days and days without end, and being locked up in one's house by government's edict, and not being allowed to go to your daily work and to be out and about as I usually do in most days (other than few hours of going to the park for a walk in the fresh air) has that "peculiar catalytic act" of giving you short-temper attitude against the world if one is not careful.

And since it's only you and your family who are collectively cooped up together in the house, then that means you better come up with an "imaginative ways" in which to pass away the time, keep everyone in an even keel - temperament wise - and put up your feet in this long holiday with lots of books to read as well as read to the children, or at least give them some sort of test to do daily (so that they won't get bored). And generally, be very mindful of not taking out your passing frustration with the world out onto them.

Hence, I know it's an "endurance test" of some sort, but I and the dearest Ms. Wifey have decided to implement a good lesson (or vibes) of accentuating the "positive side" of things to the children (such a how useful or meaningful a long family get-together and talking things over can be) out of this necessity of being locked-down together as a family in the house for a few weeks now. And it's likely to go on for at least bit longer, I fear.
