Life is nothing if you don’t have some inspiration. My very own idol Ellen DeGeneres always ends on the note “Be kind to one another” and I personally lead a life on that line. One of the mottos I have about life is to pay it forward. Even though Qatar might seem to be the land of the rich, you will always find a hungry soul around the corner. Taken the amount of construction we have here, you will see workers in this heat giving it their best to make our own country perfect. So, what do we do? Well, we take some inspirations from these restaurants who feed the poor for free.
Sharwa, a restaurant own by Mohammed Hussain, was an idea planted in his head about 20 years ago when he came from Mumbai. He remembers what it is like to be in that position and always promised himself that he would make it better for someone else. Hussain and his friend Javahar Abdul Samad have now opened an eatery in Doha’s wholesale market which is a shining spot for many.
Not only does he conquer the hungry stomach, he’s conquering heart on this journey as well. Remembering a restaurant that used to give food back home in Mumbai for QR1, he decided to pay the favor forward and decided that no one needed to be in his shoes.
Away from the hop-notch life of the city of Doha, the Industrial Area is the hub of workers and is usually where you will find the working class. Somewhere in this area “If you are hungry and have no money, eat for free!!” sign went up and it almost made the workers cry.
Shadab Khan, a film maker and owner of the restaurant, planned this venture with his brother and decided that the world could use a little kindness. Initiating this at Zaiqa, their restaurant, Shadab and his brother often feed the Nepali, Indian and Bangladeshi workers in the area.
In the actual heart of the city, a few people are already making our country what it is supposed to be and making us remember what we are actually meant to do. Have you been paying it forward lately?
