    Mr. Waheed, you are one of those rare people in a generation who is way ahead of his time. You are writing in a style and system that will wake up todays’ youth and tomorrow’s men. I am going to recommend these very powerful short stories to all my friends and students.
    One question for you, Mr. Waheed. Do you get paid for these or are these written free? If free of charge, then this country owes to you a great great debt.

      I have had the honour of being Mr. Waheed’s student in 1985. He was also a very young man at that time. Even at that time I knew that Mr.Waheed was an exceptional man. he is still proving it. You are right. This country owes him debt. How many people he has created to work for the improvement of our society, do you know? I can’t count.

    Dear waheed sir,
    your ideas and presentation are artistic and new for us.
    we are translating all your 21 stories in to Indian languages as we know, so that people may understand the tales of beautiful land called Maldive.

      That will certainly be an honor for me if you would do so!
