Star Singh







Hi all ,



I want to tell you all about star singh today. Star singh, ofcourse is not his name and i am using a pseudo name coz afterall this is an anon blog. I see him everyday. He works as a labourer where i work .Everyday i see him exactly at 05.30 am all dressed and good to go waiting for his transport to pick him up, i might as well set my watch on him. I can see him working all day, from my window at my office. He talks very little, works as hard and as sincerely as anybody else on the shopfloor. Star singh's two sons are in the indian navy and are well settled and he married off his only daughter ages ago. I wondered why he is staying on in oman for and i assumed that he is the kind of man who likes to hardwork till the day he dies.
One of those sleepless nights i wass tossing around in bed and my mind craved for a cigarette. I was out smoking in the parking lot when i got sight of star singh walking in through the camp gates lugging a huge sack on his back. What is starsingh doing with a large sack on his back in the dead of the night ?. I asked the same question to another guy at the office. Oh boy ! if i say i was shocked it would be an understatement. The crazy truth is that star singh is a sucker for bar girls. He visits them as often as he can. what ever salary he earns he spends on them and he stopped sending money home long ago. He has borrowed heavily from his provident fund. He collects empty cans all night. Yes thats right, after doing 10 hour duty star singh picks up empty coke cans all night and sells those to scrap buyers to pay off his debt.

When I was in school, too young tio understand that beyond my homework are real troubles, my Princi told our class one day, "Every person you see on the road, or in your life, has troubles." This little piece of observation changed my life. I just had to share it after reading this post of yours.

Look for a excellent red wine-niche store if you absolutely value a good wines. In spite of hauling a heftier asking price, specialty stores have really well-informed staff members and a much better variety. Discounted liquor stores could have rock and roll-bottom part rates, however, you will truly endure the results in the first preference to the final. [url=http://www.x21w12w21.info]Gitutyyt[/url]

To have a reduced auto insurance price for young adults, include them to a pre-existing family bank account and benefit from any particular programs or discount rates. As an example, if your youngster is in the respect roll in school, they could be qualified to receive an effective college student discount. Similarly, their engagement in certain businesses may also gain them an exclusive rate. [url=http://www.ss12w12ws.info]Girf34t544s[/url]
