A book by an Ethiopian Daniel Abera was launched last weekend at Hirut Ethiopian Restaurant in Toronto.
The Edmonton resident , Daniel collected thousands of proverbs in Amharic from several sources including social media .
Once inspired by the various proverbs around the Nile river, he started collecting the sayings in Ethiopia on a variety of subjects.
Bayu Kidane, President of “Haddis Nigat “, a Toronto based arts forum, said the book can be a resource base for the generation to come.
Some in the audience suggested such collections need to be wary of not perpetuating the existing societal stereotypes including that of gender.
Members of the arts forum presented various art works after the book signing.
The proverbs collection was printed by the Ethiopian owned Tana printing in Toronto.
