hi friends, i wud like 2 share a terrible tragedy which happened to one of our family friend, few weeks bk ! Death is some thing which is inevitable , and none can escape from the cruel hands of death. we in general have an idea of how long a person ought to live and when someone comes in too far below our expectation we call it a tragedy -- such a tragedy occured to one of the nephew , of our friend . The news was heart -breaking 2 all of us , as this guy who landed Qtr just 4mnths bk , a 20 yr old fresher from college -- met with his terrible end with a massive cardiac arrest .He breathed his last even before reaching the hospital . it was a great shock to all his relatives n friends here, as he was a very healthy person. Back home his mother was hospitalised on hearing 2 this shocking news! Being away from home...on hearing to such shocking events ,one cant avoid the unpleasant thoughts that haunt us for days together.Though death is a natural thing which every living being needs 2 face....we never get the courage 2 think of it in a positive way....... his friends and relatives here, decided to take the ' body' to his native , so that his near and dear ones can get a final glance of him........only then we came 2 kno of the legal difficulties or the formalities .......which has to b completed...we expats we hardly know about the legal procedures of this country...though most of our friends had been here since a decade.....its was quite a bit.....a long procedure....which goes like a death certificate from the hospital ; a no objection certificate from police & CID ; booking for the air cargo....documents fm the indian embassy ; a no objection certificate fm india - to accept the coffin at the airport...etc The already depressed relatives wondered where to start with , as things has 2 b completed before the body starts to decay...there comes Mr.Rasheed.....to support the bereaved relatives....he takes up the job voluntarily...runs around to furnish all the documents.... There was a huge delay in the procedures due to the govt.office timings as this occured in the holy mnth of Ramadan.....finally things were completed on the second day nite....rasheed is still present with the group....he takes a place with the mourners to pay the last respect and prayers for the departed soul...after this the human remains of Mr.J was boarded onto the flight................. once the work completes, rasheed moves out silently fm the group..........to look for others who r in need....of him ! A few words abt rasheed : he has been in qatar ,for nearly 20yrs...works as a sales executive ; since a decade he has been helping the bereaved....to carry out the formalities -- helps in the LAST JOURNEY of the dead - to their near n dear ones in india..he isnt bothered abt the religion /language.....he gets informations fm the hospital staffs....serves the need without expecting anything as reward .His presence is a great relief to the worried people of the dead.... In a world where people give more importance to money and external pleasures, its good to know that there r few people like Rasheed......who gives importance to his fellow human -being.... being in a foreign country, our life is self -centered ; we rarely bother 2 kno wats happening around us.....it was surprising 2 hear abt the selfless service of this person....hats off 2 u Mr.Rasheed!!!!
