Shukran Kuwait

Wednesday, February 17, 2021

Exploration of the oil in mid 1950s and its demand worldwide made the middle eastern desert country Kuwait to shine as leading exporter in the oil sector, thereby the subcontinent country India to occupy 2nd place as Asia’s largest crude importer due to its huge requirements.

As mentioned, Oil trade, India continued till date its trade in various forms with Kuwait as it is primarily agricultural country and India’s agricultural products are huge demand in Kuwait. Requirements of manpower resources in the domestic and oil sector made more and more Indians to venture in to Arabian desert country in search of green pastures as Indian labor market was becoming more competitive in the 70s as India has started gaining title of progressive nation after getting freed from British Raj.

Ample opportunities in the skilled sector, construction areas made many Indians to settle down for a longer period through joint ventures in business through Kuwaiti partnership and employed in private and public sector. Favorable Kuwait labor laws, easy visa transfer procedures kept wide gates open in choosing the Kuwaiti sponsors thereby helping the expat community in building stronger professional carrier. Indian nature of honesty made several Indians to gain more love from Kuwaiti community in the domestic housing sector. Setting up of schools for expatriate and Kuwaiti community, freedom in celebration of one’s festive activities allowed more Indian families to graze in Kuwait thereby increasing the cultural activities in embassy and in community areas and overall resulting in the elevation of diplomatic relation between India and Kuwait. Flow of more foreign exchange to India through expat community resulted in the ones economic gain overall benefitting the country in larger scale.

History is evident in highlighting the hurdles in one’s life, being a county, Kuwait is not exceptional. Gulf war of 1990 has not demotivated the country’s spirit of Kuwaiti sovereignty
and made Kuwait to stand tall in the entire Arabian Peninsula in the various sectors. The Kuwaiti Emirs in the history and the late Emir His Highness Al Sabah has many a times pronounced and thanked the Indian expat community and India’s effort in rebuilding Kuwait what it is today.

As an expatriate, every Indian resides here always needs to be thankful to Kuwait and its Emir for their continued support in building one’s life in the stronger pillars of professional carrier, for their friendly gesture, one’s freedom to express, one’s freedom to celebrate, thereby to feel the mother land is not far from one’s presence. As there is a saying: Actions do speak louder than words, every expat Indian shoulders the responsibility to shower of actions in various forms in their capacity to express their gratitude “Shukran Kuwait” being honest to self thereby helping the bilateral relation of both countries to be made even stronger in the coming days especially in this critic time of Covid pandemic strictly following health norms thus enabling the self and helping the other to maintain the good health which a real way of offering Shukran to Kuwait.

Stay safe, stay healthy
