About Me

The Maldives is developing economically at a fast speed. Yet the intellectual development and intellectual maturity of the populace is not keeping pace. I believe, the road to success lies in the fusion of these two. I feel an obligation to play a role in reaching out to the people in the outer parts of Maldives (especially people above 30), to encourage them to read and explore instead of being brainwashed by the political talks.

I also have a need and urge to speak about abuse against women and children. Most people take the abuse silently. I wish to break this silence. I am not that outspoken and I don't believe in radicalism. Yet I want to, as subtly as possible, empower women to speak up, to stand up, to have a voice.

I love my nation dearly and want the country to prosper. I want the country to be a civilized place. The road to democracy is dividing the nation and its people's unity. I have a wish to play a role in making this journey livable.

My interests: Writing, Reading, History, Publishing, Research. Above all, a need for diplomacy that sometimes borders on an overly introvert personality.

My Vision

To see Maldives as a civilized sociaty that respects basic human rights.
