He was the one everybody feared becoming King due to his conservative nature. Still RIP

Yeah, it's good in a way.

The real problem is going to come when they run out of sons and have to start on the grandsons...

I do wish there was an afterlife, would be just perfect if this guy goes up to wherever and finds out that Indians are his boss

All seemed very quiet & normal in Riyadh considering the funeral an'all.

Some chopper (heli's) activity over me last night but apart from that no national day(s) of mourning that i'm aware of.

Even Saudi colleagues seemed unusually matter of fact about the whole thing.

Saudi does not give days off for anything except the Eids and National Day. I was there when King Fahd expired and work just continued as usual.
