Material progress is nothing without moral progress. Qatar might be rich in money but poor in human rights. Migrant labourers are treated like animals, forced to work in fifty degree+ heat until they drop dead. 1200 plus died during FIFA WC stadium construction, real numbers are much higher. No real action taken by Qatar govt. until international pressure was built up. All that glitters is not always gold. It’s a heaven for the rich though.

99% of the problems in India are due to dirty politics, fix that and most other issues will be addressed. However there are more than enough real incidents of persecution and cruelty toward migrant labourers from India and neighbouring countries which show that despite being rich in money, most middle Eastern countries are devoid of human rights because it’s their natural tendency to oppress. What else can one expect in countries run by Sheikhs? Grass is always greener on the other side. Despite all its problems, India is still the best place on the planet. There can only be one… Read more »

Okay! Great! But in case you didn’t notice, this is a place for telecom related stuff & allied fields. But anyway, here’s the truth you didn’t write. Few months ago, I got to know of this pathetic incident which happened to a friend of mine. He is from Mumbai, works in an MNC & he was sent to Doha for a project. After few months he returned to India & took his beautiful newly wed wife there. One day they were shopping when they met a local prince. He was very friendly & soon struck a conversation with the couple.… Read more »
