I grew up in Male’, a tiny island of no more than 1 square mile which I call the BUBBLE. It is a bubble overloaded with cars, high rise buildings and around 100,000 people living in one of the most densely populated places on earth. This blog is a reflection of my experiences growing up in Male’ and my interpretations of the current challenges hindering the peaceful existence of the Maldives.
Through this blog I want to address the problems of development in the Maldives and create scope for debate and discussion around issues that affect the everyday lives of people. My expressions are also influenced by my experiences abroad, people I’ve met, my travels and from my research interests.
In short, it expresses how I see the world around me through a minute opening in life – a peephole.
