ONE person can stop a suicide: YOU

This month, Black & White is talking about a subject that is quite often avoided in society. Time to talk about it. If you are having a physical ailment, or if you break a bone, you will be rushed to the hospital and there is no stigma associated with it. Time to treat the issue of mental health and suicide in equal terms. And one more thing: those that are on the edge and are contemplating suicide may need just one person to pay attention to them or to show some kind of concern – and that one person could stop someone from taking their life. Why can’t you be that one person?

What can you do for your country? What is your vision of the Omani dream? B&W posed a few queries to the citizens, residents, and former residents of the country in the light of recent happenings.

    Asli Khanjar?

    Reports that fake khanjars existed in the market prompted Black & White to go on a fact-finding mission to find out whether this was true. B&W spoke to khanjar makers, specialists, and those from the government entities concerned and soon found out the answer. No fakes, only ‘asli’ khanjars in the market! Do fake khanjars exist in the market or not? What exactly is a ‘fake’? If a product’s essential quality is being diluted, or in this case, if the percentage of silver in a khanjar is very low and its overall quality is less, shouldn’t it be called a fake?
