Might or Right

I often wonder if we are thinking by our own or by others. Very often I see that what we do is not necessarily the right but we make it as right because they have the might to do so. All these days we (if not all many) thought that Mr. Ibrahim Nasir had done wrong! Indeed we did even demonstrate against him. We said he killed innocent people in Huvadhoo. At that time for us it was right because he who had might said he was bad and a culprit of killing. Suddenly last week we heard from the powerful people once again that he was right. We said he brought independence to us and laid the foundations of our social and economic development. So he was good this time because the powerful people said he was such a hero. This is the case with many aspects in us. Think of the taxi prices. Few months back when the drivers increased the taxi charges we said it was right as they had no other option due to increase in fuel prices. True. But now that the prices came down and now they say they can’t b

New terms

This time I present a list of few terms that we came across and got familiar during the political changes that our country saw. Guess this will be just a good idea to recall these once again. 1 . Isthiufa- Before the political changes started most of the time this word will be heard from the International news, except a rare case where a minister resigns. 2. Golhaabo- This I heard was a nick name given in Huvadhoo Atoll for a person who steals Toddy from the coconut palm at night. 3. Nizaamee Nuguthaa- This was so famous among us, I wonder if any wife ever stopped her husband from divorcing her using a Niazaamee Nuguthaa!!! (Point of Order). 4. Membalhun - comments. 5- Postmortem / autopsy- We got friendly with this term after late Hussain Solah case. 6. Madhanee Basneyhun- Something I never imagined in Maldives till I saw it. (civil disobedience). 7. Civil society - ............ 8. Commission- example: Civil Service Commission, Human Rights Commission. 9. Int

DO And DON'T for Anni

Today the fourth president of this country will be taking the office. All these days we had been struggling to get rid of a regime that held its power for three long decades. Now that a new president is coming ... I give a warm welcome to our new president Mr. Mohamed Nasheedh ... well in advance. I thank the outgoing president for at least accepting the defeat and moving away smoothly. Yet, that is not all that I wont to say. Since Mr. Nasheedh is going to be leading the nation form tomorrow onwards I better talk of him rather than wasting my time talking about the "history." I'd put it as a DO and DON'T Mr. Nasheedh, our president.............. DO: 1. Do fulfill your promise to rule on us with honesty, dignity and love. 2. Do bring the necessary changes to your cabinet and show us the "Quality Cabinet" (not the present party interest cabinet) that you promised. 3. Do try to make the Maldives Police Service a part of the Civil Services. 4. Do bring

My dhivehi blog މަގޭ ދިވެހި ބުލޮގު

Its been around 100 days since I started blogging with blogspot. So, now I guess I should blog in Dhivehi too. So here is my Dhivehi blog which I tried to make as good as I could. Hope my Dhivehi blog too will be progressing day by day.

The Wheel is turning backwards… We need to fix soon. (4)

Development is what everyone looks forward to. It is the dream of every person, family, society and nation to develop in one way or the other. However, achieving development is easier to be said than done. Read the story fully before you judge the story. This country is experiencing one of the very important historical changes. After a long three decades of rule by a single person, we are going to see a new president soon on 11Th November 2008. Surely this is a result of a lot of hard work. A fruit we got from a long waiting and by the toiling of several Maldivians. In the process have we got the lessons that are to be learnt? As far as I believe, the best achievement we Maldivians got in this process of change is to get the right to express ourselves. And this is something that we can never afford to lose. Are we however using this right properly? Do we enjoy this freedom as we should? I really doubt about it. Of cause there are reasons for me to say so. We

Anii Just SHUT UP Your Mouth!!!

Yesterday the Maldivian High Court reported that the case against the president elect Mohamed Nasheed (Anni) was rescheduled because he did not turn out. This became a very annoying news for many Maldivians. Especially for people who tried so much to see that he wins the election. For them it will be very much disturbing when they see him been dragged to the courts even after been elected as a president. Indeed, many says the case should be withdrawn. I disagree. Let me tell you the reasons. 1. All these days we were saying that Maumoon was above the law. If so, even after experiencing the toughness of that regime, are we going to keep Anni also above the law??? That's insane. 2. If Anni is the president of the Maldives, he will be the president of mine too as I too am a Maldivian. I had enough of a dirty background regime. At least go to court and prove that he is not guilty of a wrongdoing. Whats the big deal in it??? 3. Anni always promised to be "at the reach of the peopl
