The story for the comic was written to cater for the art style I have used. A little darker, a bit more different than usual stories. The art style is a derivative of Frank Miller`s style he used for the Sin City series. Navigation: Click mouse to zoom. arrow […]

    The Power and the Glory

    Written by: Latheefa Ahmed Verrall Illustrations: @huceins, 2012 [oureventuality.wordpress.com/] ‘The launch is ready. Sir!’ He strides towards the boat at the end of the jetty that slices the lagoon like a spear. Strong gusts of air lash against him, stinging his already charged skin. From this distance, the hum of the speed boat is almost lost amidst the angry crashing of the waves against the reef. Drawing his jacket closer to his body, he glances back towards the island. For a fleeting moment, he regrets […]

  • A’ Nisa

    A’ Nisa

    A’Nisa in Arabic means ‘The Woman’. A chapter named A’Nisa in the Quran includes verses about women’s bodies and modesty. These verses are much quoted by religious preachers, who reinterpret it as the covering of all parts of a woman’s body, except the face and hands, or sometimes leaving nothing bare, not even the eyes. The concept or image of the naked woman often rules hearts. However this notion is much unacknowledged and “the good people” find ways to mask […]

    Racism. Not a myth in the Maldives.

    One of the most appalling scenes I have witnessed in Male’ was when I saw a group of ten Bangladeshi men treated as second class human beings at the Hulhumale’ ferry terminal. In the waiting area at the terminal, everyone was waiting for the arrival of the ferry between Male’ and Hulhumale’. Once the ferry arrived, the ferry service officer asked all Maldivians to get on board first and commanded the Bangladeshis, in the rudest possible way, to wait until […]

    Historical view of Maldivian women!

      happy national day. CC Flickr, By notsogoodphotography A British ethnographer, T. W. Hockley, visited Male’ in 1935 and expressed his views on Maldivian women: “Of the women of the place I saw but few during my sojourn in Male’. Although it is a Moslem country women do not go veiled, but, nevertheless, they seemed very shy and timid as deer, and run inside their houses on the approach of a stranger. The women as a rule are fairer than […]
