To Nirasa (which means in certain language ... disappointment)..
You totally disappointed me with your irrelevant comment and your understanding of the topic is pathetic. The article was about something and Rani''s comment was about something else, just like your''s. Is it a case of understanding the language or misunderstanding of the topic?
How do you understand that I am patriotic or wasted my life in this country? Please don''t compare yourself with others.. Just for people like you... the article was about the WHO''s report published by Bloomberg about the list of countries with its population''s physical exercise habits. Not about their work habits or mental attitude nor the expatriate population''s physical exercise habits. Now about your language understanding ability.. seems you are not in the habit of reading newspapers at all, not to see or understand about Kuwait or corruption or other hanky panky businesses, written on its pages for a very long time. Start reading Arab Times and the editorials written by Ahmed Al-Jarrallah and the columns written by many in Arab newspapers, which is translated into English and published by Arab Times. This was going on for a long time and people who have the habit of reading hard or soft copies of of English newspapers are fully aware of! Start a new habit instead of writing irrelevant and immaterial comments on small platforms. Now my advice to you.. don''t write non-senses about matters that you don''t know. Are you trying to disprove what I heard from my Kuwaiti friends over the last 40 years??! Also, accept the fact that you were completely out of line and your knowledge about what is going on in Kuwait or India is very very limited. Finally, don''t leave Kuwait because people like you are an asset for this country and a liability for the home country.

Dear @Murali, This is because, you dont know some fact. 99% of the people who are here posting comment against India and Modi are all Pakistanis in fake name!!!!

The moment any article is written in IIK, some people are up in arms comparing every article with Indian scenario and degrading their own country. I have no issues people showing loyalty towards Kuwait, but why belittle India? How can somebody compare a country with 2 million people and a country with a billion population.

This particular topic is about lazy population and instead people are comparing that with traffic and corruption in India. As a layman I fail to understand the comparisons being done. Guys show some respect to your motherland.

Love you BJP.

@ ROY :
To Roy... I wonder why a patriotic person like you is wasting his life in this lazy country & its laziest population.
What Rani & Abdu has written is a bitter truth. Without money nothing moves in our country.
Accept the facts & better leave immediately back to home, rather than lecturing people.

Whatever it is, the public services that we are getting here is comparatively much better than our Nation.
Less tense, less complication and no bribes at all except nursing recruitment process (which is introduced by Kerala Acchyaayans from decades).

Expats should thank them for being lazy.. 80% of expats are here cos of this awesome quality of theirs. but in a way if I was a Kuwaiti, I too would have been the same. its cool

To Rani... please read the article again and try to understand it. You should have done that before writing this comment! About the comparison to India.. please stop visiting India to avoid further bad experiences to you and more importantly for us, too... as it is a bad experience for us to read such comments about one''s own country because of an individual''s lone experience, done without any thinking and tarnishing a country of 1.3 billion people! Lady, you have compared your ''own'' experience to compare, generalize and degrade a country! You have not really understood the country where you are residing now or the one you visited! You should be proud of yourselves..
