What Isn’t Perfect about Male’?
As we live in with our day today lives, we find a lot of problems causing us in Male’. And those problems become very difficult for us to do our work. Because Male’ is a large city with all the facilities available here. As I asked some people about the problems they are facing living in Male’, the most people said they are not comfortable living in Male’ because of the over loaded population in Male’.

I think limiting the number of vehicle for one person will be a solution for this. There are vehicles which are registered under one person’s name. Because of too many vehicles all the roads are always jammed and it...
