Photo Speaks – Abu Dhabi Bus & Police ads for Traffic Safety

Moving slowly through the city traffic is the most difficult part during the morning session of our daily working life. And if it stops completely due to a wrong parking by someone, what will be your mood? Especially in this part of the world, where most of the banks and government offices close at 2:00 pm and if one has to run between various points for multiple tasks, he will definitely be thinking, God, are you seeing all these, we have to reach at x,y and z destinations before they close. Summer is here and the temperature is rising and the tempers of the drivers will also follow suite. However, this particular advertisement on an Abu Dhabi Bus by Abu Dhabi Police convinced my belief that the authorities are aware of the wrong parking situations happening at many parts of the city. Thank you sirs, for highlighting this problem for the attention of the general public, who are of course aware of it, but helpless with the lack of parking areas at prominent spots. May be this is an indication of stringent actions going to be enforced in future for offenders who double park and block the traffic.

Solution upfront is to start using Abu Dhabi Bus… The new ones are coming soon. Why not? Enjoy the view around from a different seat and different height.

An Inspiring Moment shared (AIMs) with Team 1 – K M Nair

An Inspiring Moment shared (AIMs) with Team 1 – K M Nair

I would like to state that I have nothing much to claim in my life. How ever I am glad that I could assist the needy when ever and wherever possible.

My Motto(s): What ever you are, wherever you are, who ever you are you should always behave according to the character and or the situation.

You should understand the nature of the person to whom you are dealing without egoistic mentality and without forgetting that our original nature should be love.

The following stanza will give us an indication on how to deal in each situation:









The above sloka in sanskrit tells us:

We should have benevolence towards our kindred, compassion and pity towards our servants, wickedness towards the wicked, love towards the suave, virtuous with the royal people, tolerance towards the scholars, intimacy towards the wife.

Mr. K. Madhavan Nair (K M Nair or Nair uncle as he is lovingly called by many) is a B.Com (Honours) graduate from Bombay University and Associate Member of British Association of Hospitality Accountants (ABHA). With 18 years of employment and experience of working in Bombay (1960-1978) moved to UAE and feel this country as his home away from home. After retiring from the position as Area Financial Controller, Rotana Hotels, he is continuing as Financial Controller, Abu Dhabi Trade Centre, Abu Dhabi Mall.
