In an article containing an appeal to emotions, and food for thought (“Learn from Arroyo,” Radiance, December 23-29, 2007), Syed Tausief Ausaf has at once highlighted a very invaluable trait of a popular administrator – President Arroyo and held up to our view how Indian Embassies function leaving much to be desired. One of my sons met with an accident in Riyadh five years ago. He has undergone surgical treatment several times; a large part of his left leg has been amputated. His mobility and career prospects in spite of his M.Sc. Degree in Computer Science have been adversely affected. On our representation the Indian Embassy in Riyadh sent a letter to my son’s employer (RIY/CW/235/4/2004(393) dated 10.07.2004) and did not pursue the matter with the advocate Salman who was given an advance payment by my son. Five years have passed. Nothing has been heard from the advocate and from the Indian Embassy. What a sad state of affairs! Radiance can ideally champion the cause of the suffering Indian workers in the Middle East.
