Slide 3 2 There was once, in the country of Alifbay, a sad city, the saddest of cities, a city so ruinously sad, that it had forgotten its name. Slide 4 2.1 In the north of the sad city stood mighty factories in which (so Im told) sadness was actually manufactured, packaged and sent all over the world, which never seemed to get enough of it. Slide 5 3 Black smoke poured out of the chimneys of the sadness factories... Slide 6 3 and hung over the city like bad news. Slide 7 4 And In the dephts of the city beyond an old zone of ruined buildings...... that looked like broken hearts... Slide 8 There lived a happy young fellow by the name of Haroun. The only child... Slide 9 of the storyteller Rashid Khalifa, whose cheerfulness was famous throughout that unhappy metropolis... Slide 10 ...and whose never ending stream of tall, short and winding tales had earned him not one but two nicknames. Slide 11 To his admirers Rashid was the Ocean of Notions the Ocean of Notions Slide 12 the Shah of Blah. but to his jealous rivals he was Slide 13 5 To his wife Sorayah Rashid was for many years as loving a husband as anyone could wish for, Rashid Sorayah Slide 14 5 and during these years Haroun grew up in a home in which, instead of misery and frowns, he had his fathers ready laughter Slide 15 and his mothers sweet voice raised in song. Slide 16 Then something went wrong. Soraya stopped singing in the middle of a line, as if someone had thrown a switch. Slide 17 Rashid Khalifa was so busy making up and telling stories he didnt notice. But then Rashid was a busy man, Slide 18 he was the Ocean of Notions, the famous Shah of Blah. in constant demand, Slide 19 Haroun often thought of his father as a juggler, because his stories were really lots of different tales juggled together, Slide 20 and Rashid kept them going in a sort of dizzy whirl, and never made a mistake. Slide 21 Where do all these stories come from? Slide 22 From the great story sea.... then I feel full of steam. Glug glug glug. I drink the story waters and... Slide 23 Where do you keep this hot water? Slide 24 It comes out of an invisible tap... installed by one of the Water Genies. Slide 25 Ive never seen a Water Genie! Slide 26 Youre never up in time to see the milkman, but you dont mind drinking the milk. You have to be a subscriber. Slide 27 And how do you become a subscriber? Slide 28 Oh, thats much Too Complicated To Explain. Now kindly desist from this Iffing and Butting and be happy with the stories you enjoy. Slide 29 8 Soraya joins Haroun and Rashid. Slide 30 9 Why dont you have any more children? Slide 31 9 We used up our full quota of child-stuff just in making you. Its all packed in there, enough for maybe four or five kiddies. Yes, sir, theres more to you than the blinking eye can see. Slide 32 We tried 9 We tried. This child business is not an easy thing. Think of the poor Senguptas. Slide 33 9 The Senguptas lived upstairs. Slide 34 Mr Sengupta Mr Sengupta was a clerk at the offices of the City Corporation and he was as sticky thin and whiny- voiced and mingy...... as his wife Oneeta was generous and loud and wobbly-fat. Slide 35 2.2 They had no children at all, and as a result Oneeta Sengupta paid more attention to Haroun than he really cared for. Slide 36 11 Mr Sengupta ignored Haroun, but was always talking to Soraya. Slide 37 That husband of yours, excuse me if I mention, hes got his head stuck in the air and his feet off the ground. Slide 38 What are all these stories? Life is not a storybook or a joke shop. All this fun will come to no good. Slide 39 Whats the use of stories that arent even true? Slide 40 Haroun couldnt get the terrible question out of his head. Slide 41 Slide 42 ...
