WHEN I met Allan Jalal Monthy around 14 years ago he was what the authors of the olden days would refer to as a ‘mouse of a man” frightened, insecure and not really knowing if he was coming or going ... then two years after our encounter his life was to change dramatically in an unimaginable way.
This is a story of compassion, honesty, dedication and more important a wanton desire for success. Those of you, who want the best guide to accomplishing your heart's wishes, make this book your secret tool.
Allan’s experiences as told will cause much controversy, experiences which are noted only in a few cases in human history. That, though, is not the object of this book which deals with Allan’s personal journey – a journey that’s only half way through his existence.
Allan is a Seychellois who came to the UK in pursuit of the global expansion of what he had started in Seychelles. He has indeed endured all the hardships and happiness as foretold.
Unfortunately, many will look upon him as a show-off, from an island that has seized to be recognized by the world as belonging to its people.
Coming from a middle-class family, when he was born a close friend of his father, Harry told him to never treat his son abusively [beat him] for this boy will one day be very brave and do many good things for the betterment of mankind. Harry belonged to the Baha’i’ Faith and said that the date of birth of Allan corresponded with some holy man of his faith thus predicting that Allan would be a man of God!
Because of this, his father had much to say in the control of Allan and always took extra care with his personal upbringing and so when he left his wife [Allan’s mom] he took him and placed him under the responsibility of his grandmother.
Despite the religious prediction of Harry, Allan’s life was not to be all rosy, be feed with a golden spoon or sleep in a cotton cradle. On the contrary, things were tough for all middle-class families at that time. After National Youth Service Allan decided to go live with his mom, sisters, and brothers to help subdue their burdens.
Here too things would take another turn... But, I will let you the readers decide for yourself if the twist was for the worse or for the better!
