Famous People from Kuwait: Saleh Al-Ajairi

His mother passed away in 1933 when he was only 12 years old, and his father was an employee at Kuwait Municipality where he had to work at night sometimes.

Furthermore, his father sent him to a (Rashaida Rahip --Is this a name of an Archery Club???) to learn archery (shooting). Saleh kept staring at the blue sky, the sun, and the moon. Additionally, during his childhood while studying at a school he noticed the plaque which took his attention that everyday a sheet was removed from this plaque and as soon as he went home he started copying it with some help from his father.
