Dubai: It’s a lazy Friday afternoon but 24-year-old Jeevan Thapa is in a hurry. He’s running late and his countrymen are waiting for him at their usual meeting point, a small green patch in front of Al Ain Centre in Bur Dubai.
“I have a couple of packages to deliver to some of the community members. They are waiting for me over there. I arrived a week ago from Nepal to take up a job as an office boy at a private company in Dubai. These packages were given by families for fellow Nepalese who work in the UAE,” he said, making his way towards the green patch where he is welcomed by three other friends, two of them women.
