I too have a dream.



It was on a Wednesday, 28th August 1963 , that very famous speech of Martin Luther King was given calling for an end to racism in Unites States of America.
Today, nearly 50 years later, the Addu city is up with the same word. “I have a Dream”. This time is not a dream to fight racism but a dream to build a better city.

Now I been someone who has a stake in Addu; at least because I was borne and brought up here, I believe it’s worthwhile for me to express my dream too. Come on. Why not? We are in the era of democracy.  Freedom to express, we say, is the best part of democracy.

Well, frankly speaking… I don’t have much big a dream yet. Might be because I am not so open-minded and I am unable to focus what is ahead of us. Let it be. I will tell my dreams.

I have a dream…..
that one day I will be able to go on link road without the 2nd largest garbage area in this nation be by side.
I have a dream…..
that one day in Addu we will see a medical facility where at least some very essential services like a dialysis or proper X ray service will be given even if we don’t get a “Europe Standard” hospital in here.
I have a dream…..
that one day, I will see the near 1000 plant pots in Addu city that was made for SAARC Summit been utilized than wasted.
I have a dream…..
that one day in Addu, a proper land use plan comes into existence and the lands will not be distributed on the basis of party colour, business stake or family interest, but on the best interest of Addu and its future.
I have a dream…..
that one day we will have at least a blog, if not a proper website for the Addu city council, so that we will know what was done and what was not.
I have a dream…..
that one day the clause 110 of, the Local Government Act or famously know “decentralization of administration units of the Maldives” will be seriously considered in the Addu city.
I have a dream…..
that one day, I will make a sense why we have to spend so much just to reflect and review of the “Vision Addu” we when we know how much we spent on it and when all know it’s not near implementation.
I have a dream….
that one day I will make a sense of the cool excuses I hear for not having a national flag in the city square of Addu on the 2nd largest flag post in nation.
I have a dream …
that one day our education system in Addu will cater for the society rather than for the books and Edexcel exams even if we don’t get a world class university in here.
I have a dream …
that one day someone somewhere will take some action to stop the huge spending on ECC gone in vain.
Yes I have dreams and I keep I have a final dream that all the dreams will come true.
