The "philosopher" has now returned after several months absence to give her "philosophical ideas"! Ha! Ha!
Money can not buy you happiness and joys ....... We came into this world without money ...... Find the purpose of the human life , you won't ask for a single Riyal ..... Believe me ......
Daniel: Here is how the monthly income of QR 1000 is utilized to meet expenses:
Cost of Bed Space: QR 250 monthly
Cost of meals : QR 250 monthly,
Miscellaneous expenses: QR 100
Remittance to family: QR 200
SAVINGS (!): QR 200
A Bangladeshi worker in the above income group once told me that when he sent QR 200 home every month, people in his family could not believe that he could not remit more while working in the Middle East. They held the "firm view" that he was involved in GAMBLING!
Daniel: True, very true.
goodlittleboy, I was told that Qatar has one of the highest per head GDP in the world. Obviously it works only because the majority is suppressed and exploited!
Daniel: There are many who survive on just QR 1000. They sleep six to a room paying around QR 250 for a bed space. The clothes and personal belongings are kept under the bed. There are some hooks on the wall next to the bedside to hang the clothes. Also, usually such jobs carry the benefit of free meals.
Sure, westerners cannot conceive surviving on such a salary. But just go into one of the places where such low- salaried people dwell, and see the realities for yourself.
There are so many other perks and rewards ..... Let somebody start it ......
He will not be able to survive on QAR 1,500!
