Wake up call

If we get to see more misery in Dubai; more beggars in the streets, people in rags and street orphans, handicapped or physically challenged like the blind, deaf or people missing a limb or two...

If we get to see more old & worn-out houses and less glittery malls & hotels... add to that spotting a few homeless people here and there from time to time - Wouldn't that remind us of how lucky we are and there are more important things to worry about than 'I was served a cold soup the other day' or 'someone stole the 7days copy from our doorstep' ...?

Just something to think about ..

  • Thank you for keeping things in perspective...You are so right! We ARE so lucky and no one in this country seems to realize that! We should count our blessings to be leading such a privileged life..Let's focus on that instead of the petty things that annoy us every day.
