Shukran Kuwait: An Attitude of Gratitude

Thursday, February 18, 2021

The State of Kuwait is a magnificent country in the Western Asia. It has a petroleum-based economy having highest-valued unit of currency (Kuwaiti Dinar) in the world. This wonderful country has been a boon to the expatriate population who came to Kuwait for livelihood and got an opportunity to discover its culture of significant traditions.

My journey to Kuwait started exactly during ‘Hala’ holidays in 2007, and it is been almost 14 years that I have been staying in this beautiful and friendly country. I was born in my motherland India; but I have been brought up in this tiny great country. Kuwait has welcomed our family warmly then.

Thank you Kuwait, for becoming my home after India, will also be remembered forever in my life. This year, however, will be a special for India and Kuwait as 2021-2022 is 60th Year of establishment of diplomatic relationship between these two wonderful countries. The ties between Kuwait and India are not just diplomatic, but it is a long-standing wonderful partnership & blossoming relationship between various stakeholders across both the countries. In addition to that, 2021 is yet another landmark year for Indians for celebrating 75th anniversary of Independence. I am sure these two momentous events will take the existing ties between these two countries to new heights.

We all know that Kuwait, like any other country, has been tackling this current pandemic COVID-19 in a professional way and we all must appreciate the efforts of the Kuwait Government for handling this issue. Upholding the value and importance of public health, Kuwait Government has cancelled 2020 National Day and Liberation Day mass-gathering celebrations when COVID-19 just entered this tiny friendly country then. Kuwait Government as well the front line professionals of Kuwait have done an extraordinary job in handling this pandemic since then and efforts are continuing. Kuwait is one of such very few countries who lead from the front in this region in putting best efforts in tackling this pandemic. Since March 2020, Kuwait Government has been taking various control measures in the good interest of public health. Latest of these efforts is keeping Kuwait ahead of the other countries in making the approved vaccines available here in Kuwait, which includes vaccine from India, my motherland.

I would love to quote what our Hon. Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi said during the launch of nation-wide COVID-19 vaccination program in India on 16th Jan, 2021, in which he quoted quotes of an eminent Telugu poet, writer & social reformer Shri Gurazada Appa Rao Garu:

"Sontha labham kontha manuko, porugu vadiki thodu padavoy. Desamante matti kadoyi, desamante manushuloy,"

The quote translates into English as 'Forego your self-interest to some extent and help neighbors. A nation does not mean just mud and soil, but people”

“Thank You” may not be enough to express my gratitude to each of those who has been working tirelessly for the benefit of the humankind in fighting against this pandemic. Like you all, I am optimistic that we all will successfully come over this present situation for healthier tomorrow.

On the 60th Kuwait National Day and 30th Liberation Day of Kuwait, I consider myself privileged, to get this opportunity to pay respects to this country.
Thank you Kuwait, for giving an opportunity for our family in this wonderful country. Thank you for all the incredible years and Thank you for bringing all of these wonderful people into my life that includes a healthy habit of inculcating sports in my life.

I will end my article with the following:

Arabic has been taught and learnt as part of my school studies, but one important word that I learnt since my childhood is “Shukran”.

“Gratitude is not only the greatest of virtues but also the parent of all the others”
