Ramadan Arabian Nights 2021 : Tale of King Mahorab “The heirs' curse” Ep.1

And we are back to this wonderfully blessed time aka the Holy Month of Ramadan.

We are back to Ramadan as the Coronavirus pandemic is still with us threatening our safety and the safety of the people we love.

It is the second Ramadan in a row and hopefully inshallah next Ramadan, the world will be free from that awful pandemic.

Now Most importantly we need a break spiritually to have some rest from all that tension and fear. Ramadan is a good opportunity if we want to. 

Ramadan Kareem

Egyptian Chronicles Blog is back with its Ramadan Arabian Nights for the year 2021.

We are back to the realm of the Book of One Thousand and one night and the beautiful voice of Zozo Nabil as legendary actress Zouzou Nabil as Scheherazade.

Produced by Egyptian State Radio, we are back to the One Thousand and One Nights created by Egyptian Radio legend Mahmoud Shaaban aka Papa Sharo.

This year I chose the tale of King Mahorab or rather the saga of King Mahorab.

This year’s tale was written by legendary Taher Abu Fasha. It is not an original story from One Thousand and One Nights but you will see here the amazing talent of Abu Fasha as fiction and fantasy based on history and folklore writer.

Now after the break you can hear our first episode or rather episode No.523 in one of Egypt’s longest radio shows ever produced.

When Yuri Gagarin visited Egypt

From 60 years ago, a Russian young man called Yuri Gagarin succeeded in go into Space and the rest was a world-known history.

The Soviet Cosmonaut truly made history in Space despite his short life that ended in a tragic accident on earth

The first man to go to space in recorded history. It was a huge moment but unfortunately, it was covered or stained by politics, West/East Space race or rather the US/Soviet race

Only now we look to it beyond that stupid polarization and propaganda machine I suppose. Or not so much as the tensions are still there. 

Anyhow in Egyptian Chronicles, we will not look into Gagarin's historical trip to space but rather at his trip to Egypt.

Yes, Yuri Gagarin visited Egypt in 1962 as part of that world tour following his historical space flight and he had a blast in Egypt visiting Cairo, Giza, Alexandria and Luxor.
