I took an early ride into the airport this morning, and I started having a chat with Ramesh, 35, my Grab driver. He is an inspiration to me.
14 years ago, he arrived into Singapore as a construction worker. From there, he studied and improved each time round, moving from a construction worker to a supervisor then on to a construction manager. Eventually, he upgraded his own status from a workers permit to an S pass, and he is now a Singapore PR.
Today, he part times as a grab driver, and he also owns an South Indian eatery at 51 Soon Li Road in Boon Lay. The eatery's name is Pudukkottai. If you try it, let me know if it's good.
He is also super grateful that his wife is here with him and their son was born 2 years ago. He speaks with an Indian accent, but his son will soon speak like a Singaporean. 'language (he probably meant proficiency) is different, but knowledge is same same.' He said it with pride in his voice.
This is a man who have worked hard, climbed his way and shows us how it is done. I hope he finds success and happiness in life. Not so sure about Liverpool though. #singapore #life #inspiration
