How to replace MV Boli font

I am absolutely sure that no one likes this MV Boli system default font for Divehi language that comes with Windows since Windows XP. It’s so ugly and depressing to look at.

It will replace the existing MV Boli font with a much nicer font Faruma.

In the long history of my tutoring life since 1997 I have never felt so upset or sad about losing a student this much. Yes, I am  extremely upset. Why? Let me get to that.

Probably the main reason most students do really understand my lessons so clearly and are able to retain them for longer periods of time. Teaching/tutoring has been and is still a learning experience for me too. I just love to be abreast of or immersed in my most loved two subjects Mathematics and Physics. I love to think about problems and relate them to real life. I am fascinated and curious to see how students react to my explanation of the concepts and ideas. Teaching/tutoring is the passion in my life.
