Our daughter from Nepal

Primitive, medieval sheikhdoms floating in oil, semi-literate Arabs who have become rich with unearned income, desperate young girls from the Indian subcontinent in need of money — you know what will happen.

Our daughter from Nepal

“And then I said ‘You may have danced in a hundred movies but here you are a passenger. Go back into the line. Welcome to Bombay Customs’ and pushed her trolley back.”

The rest of us started laughing as Sridhar made a clumsy gesture with his hands, in an attempt to imitate the heroine in mention. It was half past two in the night. Air India Riyadh had just left and it meant only one thing. For an hour, we had a break since no flight would land, giving all of us a much needed respite from the maddening crowds.

“Sahib.”, a middling man with wrinkled features and folded hands walked towards the counters where we had arranged our chairs in a circle. His rugged nose, short stature and round colourful hat reminded us of the hills. The green passport clinched it. He was a Nepali.

Behind him was a young girl. Twenty years of age probably. We need to look at her passport for the exact dates. She looked scared; actually she looked positively terrorized by the airport.

    MEDIEVAL SHEIKDOMS RICH IN HYDROCARBONS TREAT WOMEN LIKE ANIMALS.
    Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation (B&MGF or the Gates Foundation) is the largest transparently operated private foundation in the world, founded by Bill and Melinda Gates. It is “driven by the interests and passions of the Gates family.”
    The primary aims of the foundation are, globally, to enhance healthcare and reduce extreme poverty, and in America, to expand educational opportunities and access to information technology.
    The foundation, based in Seattle, Washington, is controlled by its three trustees: Bill Gates, Melinda Gates and Warren Buffett.
    Other principal officers include Co-Chair William H. Gates, Sr. and Chief Executive Officer Jeff Raikes.
    It had an endowment of US$36.2 billion as of 30 September 2012.
    The scale of the foundation and the way it seeks to apply business techniques to giving makes it one of the leaders in the philanthrocapitalism revolution in global philanthropy,though the foundation itself notes that the philanthropic role has limitations.
    In 2007, its founders were ranked as the second most generous philanthropists in America, and Warren Buffett the first.
    A 2013 Bloomberg report stated that, as of May 16, 2013, Bill Gates had donated US$28 billion to the foundation.
    WE DO NOT EXPECT THIS FAVOR FROM MEDIEVAL SHEIKDOMS RICH IN HYDROCARBONS WHO ARE TREATING WOMEN LIKE ANIMALS THEY DO NOT SHARE IN .PHILANTHROCAPITALISM REVOULTION
