HAPPY 100TH POST.... Happy 2011 and Happy Four Stars.

Happy 2011 First of all, wish you all a very happy new year. I Hope this 2011 will be a better year for all of us in all the ways. I hope I was able to write some articles that you enjoyed in this year and hope I can write more in the year ahead. HAPPY 100TH POST Now, this post sure is an important milestone that I was able to reach. Reaching a 100 post, I feel is good level to reach. In the past two and half years as a blogger, I was able express my opinions in various different issues on different occasions. Mostly I tried to focus on political, economical, social and educational issues. I will not say I was able to write in every issue in the best interest of the society, but surely I tried on it. It all began about a 30 months back when a close friend of mine introduced her blog to me and encouraged me to start with one of my own. Then came my own brother who showed his blog.

However you may describe it, do not hide the fact that SBI was the second bank in Maldives. The bank been formed by an illegal government does not stop it from been a bank. You can not say I am not dead if someone kills me, just with the excuse that killing is illegal. :) Then about the golf c

A Walk on "a journalist's slipper".

One such day, as I sat in the sitting room, I saw this advertisement on MNBC about a basic journalism course. God only knows if I even spent a single minute to think if I'd join it or not. I am sure, withing 5Min's after I saw the advertisement, I noted my name in the list. Then I came here to Male'. Well, be frank, I was looking for a visit somewhere just for a change in environment. This sounds to me like killing two birds with a single stone. A small course that could add some knowledge to me as well as a change of the environment for a break. Many questioned why I had to do this course. Are you mad to do a stupid certificate level course on journalism after your degree in teaching? Are you crazy to spend MRF2500 for a 10days course? Are you going to do a course on eating and
