Dear Sail readers,
As we present to you our 18th issue this month, Muslims across the globe are celebrating Eid AlFitr. It is the joyful occasion after fasting the holy month of Ramadan, and in which families visit and congratulate each other, with all the festivities around the cities in the honor of this occasion. Sail team wishes all our readers a very blessed Eid.
As we always aspire to introduce to you new columns that are relevant to our daily lives and society; in this issue we introduce a new column named: “The First Years Last Forever” by our new columnist Ayesha AlJanahi. Ayesha joins us in collaboration with the Arabian Child organization in which they tackle the importance of early childhood development, and offer guidance and in-depth analysis on the matter.
Also, a note from our columnist Hamda AlHashemi to let you know that she renamed her column from “Living Through the Eyes of Art” into “Art of Living 101”.
Without further due, here is a brief on this issue’s articles:
- Art of Living 101: Hamda AlHashemi reflects on life’s situations, and ponders on one: isn’t this the worst thing that could happen? Maybe it is, but then again maybe it’s not.
