Welcome to the world of Nicholas Jakari… Poet, actor, sometime economist: and travelling storyteller.

This site will continue to be a home for much of my work. For the present it is the home of “The Jonker Memorandum”. [pronounced “Yonka”] It is also a blog place and by pressing Donate you will go not to a donate page; but RATHER to a place that will ‘cringe with embarassment’ and direct you to the LATEST BLOG.
ON THE OTHER HAND: PODCAST goes to “THE JONKER MEMORANDUM” which is what i call a ‘bedtime story’. Since [where i live] few people seem to read anymore, i decided to read the world a bedtime story: a story [in 84 episodes] about how the world ended: and what happened afterwards… a story about the ambiguity of memory….So… Once upon a time… https://www.amazon.com/author/nicholasjakari
Back in ’98 i had a bad thought following a series of ‘tit for tat’ “Nuke” tests, carried out between India [Grimdeer] and Pakistan [Grabbistan]. My Thought? [as you may already have noted]: “What if we have accidentally disrupted the planet… through introducing dischord to its internal rhythms… and the magma just keeps moving?” Like the coffee that keeps slopping for a while in the cup when it is moved abruptly. I called this ‘disruption’ “The Ringing”. Events since 1998: a clutter of tsunamis, earthquakes, climate change and abnormal weather patterns seem to echo my bad thought… and then some…
For instance, more than half of all ‘explosive’ seismic events [mainly earthquakes] on a Richter scale greater than Hiroshima [6.0] of which we have a record over many millenia, have been recorded this century i.e. the 21st century [as at April 20th 2016]. I’m sure that level of evidence in a court case would find someone guilty… but of what… Moving the innards of the planet? Causing a change in the frictional relationship of the magma section? Raising the internal heat levels?
However this story is [i think] fictional [especially since it is about things that hadn’t happened or in many cases not even been thought of when the writing began back in 1994.]. It is Part 3 of a series of tales set against the background of the [so-called] ‘Mzansian Revolution’ in the southern part of Afrika, where i live. Parts 1 and 2 are respectively “The Buffalo Hunters” and the “The Ashanti Raider”, both of which will become available eventually when i figure out how to do it, off this site, in digital form… as will the text of the ‘Jonker’.
This tale: “The Jonker Memorandum” involves a series of themes that relate to what is happening on our planet right now: financial bubbles and meltdown and gender violence amongst others, and, as part of the story, presents a series of arguments relevant to the following ideas:-…
What if women eventually rebel against an [apparently threatened] world of male dominance? What if there is a way to solve the world’s financial circumstances that involves a reinterpretation of the world as we now know it to be… as it becomes the world of the new ‘Knowledge economy’? A world running on “Basic [so-called Universal] Pay”. What kind of a world would you have to have to enable someone, specifically a woman, to randomly walk the country naked, with a purse of gold upon her head, and not be molested? It was said that this was true of the empire [brutally] created by Genghis Khan… how could it be replicated and still be in accordance with the best Konstitutional provisions?
And what if all this complicated stuff is wrapped up inside a cool adventure story: “The Jonker Memorandum”.
Listen and decide for yourself … and understand that, as i have already mentioned, the story takes 84 episodes from start to finish: and it is designed for today’s content hungry story follower: because as in life generally everything that happens is of relevance.
For new listeners: click on ‘Podcast’ to go to the “Jonker Memorandum” storypage. All episodes appear down a vertical line: you simply scroll on and on, from 1 to the end. There is minimal accompanying text, beyond a bald intro’ to the episode.
The DONATE button has been disengaged; and is now a link to the current blog file… [there is also a separate link to a blog file directly linked to the development, over many years, of the Jonker Memorandum]. So the name DONATE will eventually change to BLOG. In the meantime you will go to a message that refers to “Embarrassment” and will provide a link to the current blog file
Thank you for listening/reading and may this tale of the Jonker Memorandum intrigue you as it has others.
