A book celebrating Indian expats’ life in Qatar

  • Life

A book on the Indian expatriate community in Qatar, a first such initiative of its kind, is just out and making waves.



It highlights some amazing rags-to-riches stories of Indians, among other information about, and activities of, Qatar’s largest expatriate community.

Written by Nilangshu Dey, an Indian himself, the book features some incredible tales of Indians who landed here bare-handed and became billionaires over time.

Though the Indian population in Qatar is huge and success stories are numerous, Dey has sampled 35 of them that merit attention.

A homesick young man who wanted to return to India only a week after he landed a job here, became a famous businessman after he was prompted to stay on for a while and give it a try.

Another Indian who turned a business tycoon over time and now has business interests in several countries, came here in 1979 to work in a Pakistani-run company at a paltry monthly salary of QR1,500.

Known as the ‘LG Man’, media-shy C V Rappai, came here to work as a salesman and is now Director and General Manager of Video Home and Electronics Centre.

Hailed as the father of the car rental business in Qatar, K P Abdul Hameed, is also featured in the book along with his relative and business magnate, A K Usman.
