    Thoughts. Constantly evolving in our minds, speculating on all around us. However insignificant a thought may seem to be, you never know what it can expand into unless it is shared. The unshared thought simply drowns in oblivion, taking along with it the plethora of other ideas and opinions that hearing this thought might have bred in other minds. Emmenge presents an excerpt from a conversation where one such thought is shared, and branches out into a myriad opinions.

  • Love Palestine, hate racism

    Love Palestine, hate racism

    The Maldives is probably one of the most faithful supporters of Palestine, and our relationship with the people of Palestine goes beyond diplomacy. Maldivians see Palestinians as their ‘Muslim brothers and sisters’ and as long as I can remember there has always been a prayer for the people of Palestine included in our Friday sermons. We have vowed to ‘stand shoulder to shoulder with Palestine’ in its bid to gain full membership at the UN and it would not be […]

    Reflections on 2012

    It’s the end of 2012 and what a year it has been. Almost one year ago I remember having a conversation with someone who wrote a daily blog for 365 days in 2011 – he wrote pieces on his wedding day and even during his honeymoon! I was inspired by his commitment and although my blogging ambitions were different to his, I had a lot of fun writing whatever I could manage in what turned out to be a very […]

As usual our conversation ended up in politics. Tonight  the conversation revolved around the death of Evan Naseem and the subsequent prison uprising that ensued. The prison mayhem was quelled by the prison guards directly shooting at the inmates, in some cases the prisoners were shot from behind, resulting in the death of three inmates. In the heated argument we hit […]

Then he faced the unfortunate pressure from within his coalition government when they escalated their demands to annul the GMR concession agreement.

Life for us moves on only to give us pleasure and most of the time it does not matter how we achieve it. If we have to step on our grandmother it`s sad to say that we do it.
