What would you do if you do not possess a UAE driver’s licence and you find yourself being declared the sole winner of a brand new BMW saloon car? Well, if you are Arun Adhikari, than you thank your lucky stars and more!
Arun Adhikari, a 21-year-old father of one just could not believe his stars when he received a call from A2Zarabia.com, the UAE-based digital services provider, informing him that he had won the new ride as part of the company’s Win a BMW competition that was held to coincide with the UAE’s year of giving initiative.
Arun Adhikari (pictured right), who works as a cleaner on the Dubai Metro network, was chosen at random from the online competition’s participants by a Department of Economic Development official as the winner of a new BMW 3 Series car. The 2017 model car was presented to Arun at the AGMC BMW showroom in Dubai on April 6, 2017.
“We never thought that one competition would have such a profound effect on us all at A2Zarabia.com. We launched our online ecosystem with the aim of being a part of the UAE’s 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 (pictured left).
Hardly able to conceal his excitement, Arun Adhikari, a Nepali citizen, 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 driver’s licence.
“I have decided to sell the car and use the money to start a small business or a coffee shop back home [Nepal] as the money will enable me to provide a better future for my family and my newborn daughter who I have not seen yet. I thank A2Zarabia.com for making my dreams come true.”
