God’s peace be with you. Malaysiakini reports today that you have called upon DAP to merge with PKR and Amanah, with a view to “creating a more representative and bigger multi-racial party”. “All three should dissolve and merge into one pluralistic party with a progressive outlook. I really hope that one day Pakatan Harapan will […]

God’s peace be with you. Sorry, no more YB prefixes for elected reps. And I dont mean Yang Berhormat, which we abandoned a long time ago. I mean Yang Berkhidmat. Post Sheraton, we are just not too sure, with few exceptions, who our elected reps actually serve. I caught Ong Kian Ming’s and Kelvin Yii’s […]

Do I? And what do I tell the kids?

February 25, 2021


I am speaking of the Covid-19 vaccine. Since last April, I have been distributing sanitisers and disinfectants, going down to customers’ premises and teaching cleaners how to use what I supply. I have made it a point to try and keep abreast of developments of anything and everything related to combating the virus. I am, […]

February 23, 2021


By Jayanath Appudurai A year ago, on this infamous day, The Sheratoonians, shredded our dreams! Not that, we were not expecting it. We knew this day will come, We lived in pious hope, that it would not. All the signs, that it was an ill-fated, Coalition of Hope, were there, for those who understood, the […]

Jayanath Appudurai There is a circus in town and it promises to deliver all kind of scintillating entertainment. It’s been in town for some decades now. The cast is pretty big! A total of 292 (222 “Main” and 70 “Sokong”) to be exact. The usual hierarchy is found – the Lord of the Ring, Deputy […]

They live in their own Concocted world, Divorced from the People’s aspirations. The frolic of the politicians, Is too much to bear! Hope lies eternal, they say, […]
