TABORA ONCE A MAJOR TRADE CENTER: Tabora ilishawahi kuwa kitovu cha Biashara

TABORA ONCE A MAJOR TRADE CENTER

The silent town of Tabora, in the western Tanzania, a land of wanyamwezi and taborians of mixed racial background remains a key transit point in the country. The Central Line railway branches at Tabora to both Kigoma and Mwanza, and visitors travelling by train often use Tabora as a stopover point during their journeys. The regions around Tabora are famous throughout Tanzania for the honey they produce, and large jerry cans and bottles of the famous liquid can be bought in the village market.

Historically, as we have been pointing out Tabora was once a major trading point and stopover for caravans that connected Lake Tanganyika and Central Africa with the coastal town of Bagamoyo to the northeast. It’s former importance is illustrated by the fact that the infamous trader Mohammed Said Almarjeb ak.a Tippu Tip, who lived during the 19th century, made Tabora the centre of his vast trading empire of ivory and slaves. The town was also an important mission station during early European exploration of Tanzania. Stanley and Livingstone both stopped here on their journeys. During the German occupation, Tabora was one of the most populated and prosperous towns in the whole of East Africa. Oops!!! stop…. the Story is now a bit different. Tabora is not in a position as it is used to be. Drought accompanied by dependance on seasonal rains made the economy of Tabora to dwindle. One thing definitely remain is the passionate of the people at all time irrespective of seasons, economic boom or recessions, day or night Tabora will and shall remain as the symbol of respectiveness, sincere people to their hearts and all times lovers of visitors and strangers. Welcome to Tabora and taste the real honey.

Mji au mkoa wa Tabora uko magharibi ya Tanzania. Tabora inabaki kama njia panda muhimu ya usafiri nchini. Reli ya kati inapacha katika mji huu kuelea mji mkongwe wa Kigoma na kuelekea Mwanza (Kanda ya Ziwa). Wasafiri wengi husimama na kupumzika katika mji huu. Tabora ni maarufu kwa ukarimu wa watu wake na mazao muhimu kama tumbaku na hasa asali ambayo inazalishwa kwa wingi mkoani hapa na upitapo kwa usafiri wa gari au treni utaona asali ikiuzwa kwa bei rahisi ikiwa katika madumu au chupa. Utachagua mwenyewe kiasi upendacho.

A HOMAGE TO SHAMMI KAPOOR

A Legend and Indian Movies superstar and film director Sammi Kapoor (79) has died. He had been suffering from kidney disease for some time and had been admitted to hospital last week.
“He had been undergoing dialysis for the last six or seven years but developed complications,” Nikhil Gangavane, a family friend who headed the official Shammi Kapoor fan club, said.
Indian film star Amitabh Bachchan tweeted that with Kapoor’s death the “flamboyance and joie de vivre of the [film] industry [was] lost”. Actress Saira Banu, who starred alongside Kapoor in Junglee, told CNN-IBN: “It is a terrible shock. Shammi Kapoor was a wonderful human being. He is eternal.” Film director Karan Johar described the actor on Twitter as “one of the finest and strongest men I knew” while actress Priyanka Chopra said she was “at a loss” after hearing the news.
A prominent star in 1950s and 1960s, fans called Kapoor the “Elvis Presley of India” for his frenetic and agile dancing in romantic hits such as 1957’s Tumsa Nahin Dekha (You’re One of a Kind) and 1959’s Dil Deke Dekho (Give Your Heart and See).
He developed a style of his own and cinema-goers flocked to the theatres just to see the actor’s antics and mannerisms.

With his infectious on-screen persona and energy, Kapoor was considered the Indian film industry’s first real star. However, he admitted much later that he was never a natural dancer, even if his original moves were a big draw for audiences and made him an unlikely romantic hero. “The truth is I could never learn to dance. I even tried coaching classes but failed,” he told the BBC in a 2006 interview.

“I always had a sense of music and rhythm. And that worked in my favour.”
The actor was also a keen internet buff and amongst the first Indians to have his own website. The site profiles his famous family, who have dominated Hindi-language cinema virtually since its inception. He also maintained Facebook and Twitter accounts, describing himself as a “Renaissance man, retired actor, computer buff”. When the internet company Yahoo opened its office in Mumbai several years ago, he was invited by its co-founder Jerry Yang. At the launch, Kapoor was pleasantly surprised to hear the band playing his Yahoo song from the film Junglee [or Wild], made famous years before the internet existed, and so called for his famous cry of “Yahoo!”.

Later, Mr Yang told him how inspired he was by the Yahoo song and the way the actor had used the word in his inimitable style in so many of his films. “It was all very flattering. Many of my relatives still call up and ask whether I own Yahoo,” he told the BBC in an interview. According to the actor’s Facebook page, a funeral was held yesterday Monday 15 August at the Ban Ganga Crematorium in Mumbai. He is survived by his wife, a son and a daughter.SOURCE lukwangule.blogspot.com
