Traffic police

Posted by sv on 1/18/2020 11:57:35 am

the other day i was following my friends car and on sixth ring road he took up speed and i following him , suddenly he took a sharp cut and i went over a divider and got stuck and the car wouldnt move . the road was full of traffic and i was fearing if someone will bang the car from back by mistake. one bengali guy with a towing van stopped and tried to help but no use , atleast he was kind . then police somehow came and within minutes blocked the entire 6th ring road and police towing van came and pulled out the car . a smart young sardarji pulled it . thank god the car was not at all damaged so police told me to buzz off i folded my hands and thanked him . the police man a young person nor the towing people spoke rudely to me but didnt utter a word , i was in tears for the help i got and the good people who helped me .god almighty has been so kind to me for the timely help i got . i can only pray for that policeman and his family and the towing people and the bengali gentelmen.

Dilemma with Parents

Posted by indian on 1/12/2020 8:20:49 pm

dear all,

i am sure most of you all might have this issue. parents are old and maybe you want to bring them to kuwait on pr but not possible for pr in kuwait. u start worrying for them as they live alone in india and u care for them about their health. some maybe even trying for pr in western countries so that later on they can bring their parents to those countries, but all are not lucky ones like them.
eventually u start thinking that if some major health issues happened in india, then who will take care of them in that moment. after all, it will take some few hours for u to reach india at that time. some people send of their families ( wife and kid ) so that the wife becomes a support for parents. but then the husband has to stay alone here.
does anyone of you experience these kind of thoughts ? just wanted to share my thoughts as above. and most of all, pls no hard comments as they are our parents, bcoz of whom we are earning and living here in kuwait.
god bless all.

my fellow indians,
we all know india''s economy is crashing and as expected the rich are getting more richer and most of these richest belong in the bjp. before the demonetisation of our bank notes, many of the rich indians were pre informed and luckily a friend had informed me too which enabled me to invest 90% instead of handing it out to be exchanged.
the bjp are now in the process of bringing another move in which they will have the power to close any bank account, this will affect everyone in the public and no one will have the right to say as it''s the power of the bjp. if you have good amount of savings then i kindly request you to invest or buy an asset in a foreign country outside india, few have already begun this type of investment as india is financially messed up.

Ticket for parking in No Parking Area

Posted by prince joe on 1/11/2020 9:36:22 am

dear all,

on last thursday, while visiting ikea, i parked my car in the side with another cars thinking that that area is designated for parallel parking. after few minutes when i came back i found an yellow ticket on my wind shield. quite disappointing thing was that police officers were watching while i was parking the car in that place, they could have stopped me at the same moment but they didn''t. anyways, i am waiting for the fine to appear in the system. any fellow indians had similar experience and how much they are gonna charge for such violation? any issue in driving the car while the traffic fine is active?
please share your experience.

Studies after high school / education abroad

Posted by shanto mathew on 1/11/2020 8:28:23 am

after high school in middle east, most of the parents make a big mistake by sending their children to study back in their home country and then for masters in a western country. that''s really dumb as it''s a waste of time, money and education. if the student does his or her bachelors and masters in nz, aus or canada then theres a guarantee that the student be eligible for a permanent residency.

Immigration to Canada

as born and bought up in kuwait, i respect and love kuwait from the bottom of my heart but kuwait isnt same as how it used to be during the 90''s. everything has changed esspecially the rules and policies.
it''s high time now you start immigrating to a better country before being kicked out from kuwait or from your job.
incase of any plans of trying for canada, let me know. dont waste your money on the agents in kuwait as they going to charge you with a fake assurance. many have tried with agencies in kuwait and have lost hope and money. so, be wise and get in touch with me. god bless.
