The Men’s Spiritual Radio Hour- A show about men and their Spiritual Journey
Guest for our Tuesday show is Lionel Ntasano
Lionel Ntasano was born in Burundi and raised in Zambia. He attended university in the U.S.A, Kenya and Switzerland; almost quitting college to be a member of a music band. Most days, he wishes he had actually had the guts to go through with it. This observation has now provided him with the understanding that the pain of regret hurts much more than the pain of failure. Thus he went into culinary school to feed his soul ultimately opening a small beach resort called NONARA BEACH RESORT, where he is currently the general manager. Nevertheless, he still did not believe that he had reached the place he wanted to be, regardless of the small career success. Emptiness was still rampant. As a voracious reader since childhood, he decided to have a go at writing. Surprisingly, the process of writing Greener on the Other Side significantly helped him to grow and mature as a person. Thanks to this experience, he has mended difficult relationships with siblings and friends. He truly believes that he has become more understanding, and he is glad to say that this is what the book is all about; understanding, patience and forgiveness.
Greener on the Other Side with author Lionel Ntasano from Burundi, Africa
This perceptive, coherent, thought-provoking and piercing work highlights the subtle social game of everyday life filled with puns and double meanings, seen through the eyes of an unorthodox hero - a very young priest by the name of Nickolas Jordan.
He is a teenage African boy who loses his family in a gruesome genocide. He finds himself in New York City as a political refugee; disillusioned with the adult world and its phoniness; where his world takes another tumble as he meets all kinds of people that further shatter his understanding of life; an envious lawyer, an angry artist, an egocentric heiress, a greedy businessman and a slothful dreamer. After a decade has passed, he returns to his native country to meet his only remaining relative, and childhood best friend maybe to find some closure, but to his surprise, he discovers that she is a gluttonous alcoholic and the best friend, an opportunistic pervert. All these encounters, events and relationships, shape his views and beliefs that ultimately induce him to become a priest.
The story is set between 1993 and 2013 in New York, Paris, Nairobi and Burundi, and begets the question whether the Grass is always greener on the other side of the fence.
Lionel Ntasano was born in Bujumbura, Burundi and now runs the Nonara Beach Resort in his homeland. His life and work have taken him through Zambia, the United States, Kenya, France and Switzerland, among others. Writing Greener on the Other Side has helped reconnect him to family and friends after a turbulent life of glamour, travel and tragedy.
Lionel is a lawyer and media legal analyst, a news decoder and essayist. An author, blogger, pioneer podcaster and (out)spoken word performer.
He’s a political atheist and has a blackbelt in realpolitik. He eschews left-right paradigms and rejects whole cloth run-of-the mill trite and usual political analysis through the media’s patented worldview, spectrum and prism. Lionel is also a practicing lawyer, admitted in Florida and New York as well as the Bar of the Supreme Court of the United States and enjoys myriad practice areas that involve First Amendment, privacy and constitutional law issues and implications.
Today we touch on a number of current events, and what importance U.S. constitution play in our everyday lives. LionelMedia.com
