‘Dazzling Damsel’, my dream cruise ship, floating with pride on the glittering water of Dubai looks like gigantic jewel collection. Its regal existence communicates the phenomenal growth of an ordinary man on this land of gold.
Working at Abra (boat) station was my first step towards my Damsel. Swarming abras running the errands of commuting frequently were my source of inspiration. Their roars seemed to be claiming that they are the lowliest paid yet hard working ones. Markets surrounding Abra stations, that I would sneak in between my commutes, were my windows to the world and portals to success.
Golden mornings with abundant heat would melt the perspiring souls, and by the time it was afternoon the exhausted city would submerge into the siesta to re-energize itself for the warm evenings. Gold shops like beautiful models, displayed glittering ornaments to tempt the buyer’s eyes to wear them visually – at least. Dubai a visual treat to admiring eyes and an ultimate goal of aspiring hearts, was now the focus of my enduring will.
As the proceeding steps of my perseverance grounded on this land, the road that started from survival finally got its ultimate arrival.Dubai kept alive my aspiration and now my Dazzling Damsel is one of the jewels that enhance the beauty of this Gold city.
A pinch of Pollyannaism-
All big projects start with the small steps, so think big and proceed in that direction, whatever you will achieve will be satisfactory enough either the objective or the experience…
This is a complete work of imagination…
