The Nubian People [ The Nubians ]

The Nubians of Northern Africa embrace a history and tradition that is easily traced to the dawn of civilization.
The Nubians hold esteemed credentials that identify them as the very first people of whom modern archaeologists have evidence of from northeastern Africa.
The Nubians settle along the great Nile River from Aswan Egypt, to south of Sudan's capital of Khartoum.

The Nubians are an ancient people dating back to 4000 BC. Numbering approximately one million, the Nubians in both Sudan and Egypt
suffer from intentional discrimination because of their non-Arab descent. Following the construction of the Aswan High Dam in 1960,
the Nubians faced a painful exodus from their ancient dwellings. Hundreds of thousands of Nubians were forced to leave their homeland
because of flooding from the newly constructed dam. They were dispersed to less fertile areas in both Sudan and Egypt.
Great Nubians monuments and historical sites were lost as a result of the construction of the dam. The Nubians lost their ancient homeland in the 1960's,
but their culture and heritage remain ever constant. The Nubians are non-Arab Muslim tribes who speak mostly Arabic.
Although Nubians once were strong Christians during the sixth century, they are virtually all Muslims today.
The Nubians were converted to Christianity during the sixth century. They remained Christians until the gradual process of Islamization began to take place
from the fourteenth until the seventeenth centuries. The Nubians hold a few vestiges to their Christian past.
The symbol of the cross is still seen in the decorations of many Nubian homes.

In addition, children are dipped in the Nile at the age of three days which is reminiscent of baptism.

Nije se plasio nikoga
  Nije se plasio nicega
No jednog jutra jednog dana
  Ucini mu se nesto vidi
I rece Nista znaci
  I bio je u pravu
Bez sumnje na svoj nacin

  Nicega nije bilo
No istog jutra istog dana
  Ucini mu se nesto cuje
I on otvori vrata stana
  I rece Nitko znaci
I bio j
e u pravu
  Bez sumnje na svoj nacin

Nikoga nije bilo
  No tada shvati da je sam
Ali da nije sasvim sam
  I poc
ne da se boji
I vidje jasno kao dan
  Nitko i Nista pred njim stoji.

Jacques Prévert

(1900 - 1977)

Jacques Prevert

Il n'avait peur de personne
  Il n'avait peur de rien
Mais un matin un beau matin
  Il croit voir quelquechose
Mais il dit Ce n'est rien
  Et il avait raison
Avec sa raison sans nul doute

  Ce n'était rien
Mais le matin ce męme matin
  Il croit entendre quelqu'un
Et il ouvrit la porte
  Et il la referma en disant Personne
Et il avait raison
  Avec sa raison sans nul doute

Il n'y avait personne
  Mais soudain il eut peur
Et il comprit qu'il était seul
  Mais qu'il n'était pas tout seul
Et c'est alors qu'il vit
  Rien en personne devant lui.
