Dubai, Jul 1: Twin brothers, hailing from Tamil Nadu, came to the UAE on the same flight, work in the same office and share the same dreams to make it big in the UAE.
The two, Suresh and Kumar, work for a Dubai-based cleaning company and are posted in the same office of a media house, live in the same sharing accommodation causing much confusion and mirth as they go about their daily routine life.
“Sometimes, our colleagues get confused and only very close friends can distinguish between Suresh and Kumar,” says Suresh.
“We are both 28-years-old and there is only a few hours difference in our age. We have lived together in our village in Tamil Nadu and now we are living together in Dubai. We are yet to get married and I don't know our wives will have confusion in identifying their right husbands,” added Kumar, with a naughty smile.
They have identical faces, hairstyle and even mannerisms.
“One day Suresh was cleaning the washroom and an Arab working in the office came to the toilet. When that person left the washroom, Suresh was still cleaning the floor there. The person then went to the kitchen and found the same guy there,” says a colleague Gopal.
“Only later did she realise that the office boy she spotted in the kitchen was Suresh and the guy wearing the same uniform was his twin Kumar. Such confusions are quite common in their daily routine,” Gopal says.
“Sometimes they cannot convince others about their identity because of language problems. They don't speak, but can manage English. I am still confused about the two,” he adds.
Another colleague narrates a story of the twins: “One day I was sitting with one of them in our sharing accommodation in Al Qouz and I went out to buy a bottle of water.
“When I reached the shop, I found the same guy standing there. I could believe it. It was only then that I realised that the two are twins.
“At work since they use the same uniform, there is a lot of confusion, but it is ok,” says the colleague.
