As of now, there is nothing (that) attracts us to Barwa Village.

Shantu Thapa, a Nepali technician from Mesaieed, who still prefers visiting Musherib on his day off, despite the fact that more than half of the area has already been demolished.

The Gulf Times wants to know why the laborers don’t flock to Barwa Village instead, where many former Musherib shopkeepers have (unhappily) relocated.

Yet, store owners there have long complained about the high cost of rent and low demand for their products, a combination that is putting many out of business. 

What do you think? 

If workers are not allowed in malls or parks on “family days,” and they’re about to lose the center of the city as their gathering place, where can they hang out on the weekend?
