I received this video by email the other day, it's a bit old and I'm sure most of you know this segment by Abu Mahjoob.
Ever since I watched it I couldn't help thinking about all these malls and projects scattered all around the city, and the new future of Amman in a couple of years propaganda. As much as it may sound like development and progress in the country I found it a bit confusing; Amman already has its own authentic identity that needs to be cherished and taking care of, does it really need all those glamorous lavished buildings? And don't we have enough malls already?
Feels like transforming Amman into a totally different city maybe like Dubai for instance! And for what? They are spending huge amounts of money on these kinds of projects and eventually who will they really serve!?
Here in Amman there are far more essential projects to be done, where the citizen is the number one priority and will actually benefit from all this mess, like fixing roads, supporting and improving public schools, providing decent public facilities for families and children, helping less privileged families with projects of their own to support their family and efficiently contribute in their society, helping their children as well with decent education..ect! And what about governorates other than the capital Amman? Don't they deserve to be involved!?
