Dubai – A young Nepali cleaner’s life changed overnight in Dubai when he won a brand new BMW car in an online competition. But, sadly, he doesn’t hold a licence to drive this luxurious vehicle and instead aims to sell it.
Launched by A2Zarabia.com, the online competition is in line with the UAE’s year of giving.
Arun Adhikari, a 21-year old Nepali father of one, and cleaner at Dubai Metro, was randomly chosen by a representative from the Department of Economic Development as the winner of a new BMW 3 Series, 2017 model. The car was handed over to Arun at the AGMC BMW Showroom at Sheikh Zayed Road Dubai on April 6, 2017.
Speaking about his excitement of winning a brand new BMW, Arun Adhikari said, “When A2Zarabia.com called me to tell me I had won, I could not believe it – me? I entered the competition, and I don’t even have a driving license. I have decided to sell the car, and use the money to start a small business or a coffee shop back home – this money will enable me to provide a better future for my family, and my new-born daughter who he has not seen yet. I just want to say thank you to A2Zarabia.com for making my dreams come true.”
“We never thought that one competition would have such a profound effect on us all at the A2Zarabia.com offices. We launched our online ecosystem with the aim of being a part of the UAE online community by providing digital services that span all the major requirements of an individual or a family,” said Parvez Ahmed, A2Zarabia.com Co-Founder and Chairman.
“We are thrilled to congratulate Arun on this win, and we hope that he takes this opportunity to change his life for the better. This sets an incredible tone for our journey in the UAE market and proves that the UAE is a place where dreams really do come true.”
