    Thoroughly enjoyed watching the lecture!

  2. Thanks for the link MN-

    Didn't watch it yet, so unsure whether you were being sarcastic...

    Anyways, this is a good initiative. Another good thing would be Civics as a compulsory subject for students grade 7 and above. By the time they are voters, they will be aware of the functioning of the govt, and their rights and responsibility in good governance.

  3. Dear JJ,

    Is it possible for this article to be updated and upgraded out of News in Brief section with the Youtube videos attached to it?

    This lecture by the president delivers an important message to the public at this critical juncture in the Maldives economic reforms.
