Since the nomadic age human beings have been migrating to greener pastures.
Civilizations have changed the lifestyles of human beings and way of thinking;
however the basic habits remain the same. With the changing civilizations
smaller villages have turned into towns and towns into cities and mega cities.
Initially people were migrating from countryside and then to cities but now they
have crossed the borders of their countries and emerging as a concept of global
village. This world has become a global village has become a global village in
the era of Information Technology where place to live in and hence the distance
and speed of migration has increased.
Furusians were no different human beings. Since early 30s people of Furus – then
a tiny village on coastal strip of Konkan, located in arms of Sahyadri hills,
approximately 250 kms away from Mumbai – started migrating to Africa and Middle
East. Despite the distance of migrant Furusians they remained attached to their
hometown. Their affection and love for Furus, its inhabitants and the nation is
indisputable. Their emotional and mental bond with Furus has kept all Furusians
together. This bond remains the secret behind the formation of Furus Welfare
Societies in Kuwait and other countries. Furusians formed a society wherever the
figure is 10 or more and started contributing from their earnings for the
welfare of their homeland.
In Kuwait FWS was formed during early 60s with the motto putting our village on
a progressive path. Small contribution by an individual of the society helped to
build schools, drinking water scheme, library, sports club, scholarships,
mosques etc. in the village. Slowly and steadily the hard work of our
forefathers started bearing fruits. Doctors, Engineers, Officers, Businessmen
and other professionals from every sector started emerging from this village.
Furusians attachment to their native place, their motherland is indisputable.
Their loyalty to Furus and its prosperity is the open secret for the survival of
this society. Striving for social upliftment and the welfare of community is the
motto of this society. Our predecessors have us to reach a common consensus by
debating every issue related to the community on a common platform. This helped
us to maintain healthy democracy. They have imbibed in us the urge and qualities
to work for a cause and community welfare. We pray to Almighty Allah that the
present senior members will succeed in instilling these qualities in the
