Back in 2002, a soft spoken Maldivian came to the National Law School of India University, Bangalore under a quota for students from member countries of the South Asian Association for Regional Co-operation (SAARC). His ambition was to become a judge in his home country.

Ali Hussain did not make the cut on his return to Male, for reasons best known to his interviewers. He did, however, go on to become a Member of Parliament for the Opposition Jumhooree Party.
