:Not  all those who migrate to the Gulf nations  with big dreams in their eyes  and seeking greener pastures, can  have their dreams fulfilled. There are many who are caught in trouble after being promised company jobs and  ending up in jobs as domestic helps.

There are many more who  are even forced to languish behind bars  for no fault of theirs. Some even are caught in a dilemma unable to return  to their home lands but are forced to lead a hell like life.  This is the story of one such person from Mangalore who struggled for nearly 12 years  and  recently returned to his homeland, thanks to the kind gesture of Kuwait India Fraternity Forum(KIFF).

He is Aboobakker, a taxi driver of Mangalore origin who is now happy to be back home with his family after years of turmoil when he was caught in several cases.. Hailing from Beluvai near Moodbidri, Aboobakker is presently based at Gurupura. He had left for Kuwait in 1998 to work as a bus driver.

He returned home land after three and a half years of service and again went back to Kuwait  where he joined as a driver in a taxi company. Everything was fine for the first two years. But soon he had to search for a new  job and he joined another Taxi company. But the agent concerned was harassing Aboobakker by not furnishing  necessary documents.  This forced Aboobakker to  face several cases for driving a vehicle sans proper records.

A frustrated Abobaker handed over the car and its keys to the agent saying he will start work only after he gets the valid documents. But problems began when a case was registered against Aboobakker for abstaining from work for long duration and also stating he had arrears to his cleared. When Aboobakker could not reimburse the amount, he was banned from  travelling to hometown for several years.

A relative of Aboobakker on getting to know his plight contacted the Kuwait India Fraternity Forum (KIFF) which rushed to his aid. With the help of Karnataka unit of KKMA and various NRIs it was successful in ending the ordeal of Aboobakker.

Aboobakker who is now a happy man says his son  who was just six when he left to Kuwait  is now  studying B.Com whole his daughter is in tenth standard. Several people of the nieghbourhood had arrived to see me  after a gap of several years, he says with a smile.
