By Jayanath Appudurai ______________________________ Staring at a blank page, No words to pen. The pain is too deep, To express! Decades of hopeful struggle, Ending in a nightmare. 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, […]

If you’re set on crime as your vocation, though, remember. Big time. If you’re going to steal, steal big time. Going to wash money ( launder, lah ), wash big time. Dont be jaguh kampung! Take kow kow! If its big enough, and you get caught, can work it out, one. Return half, and go […]

The statement, “My home is safe. Very little flammables in my home”, is a reflection of how little we understand the very nature of fire. I, too, suffered the same delusion two years ago. Until I saw Grenfell tower up in flames. Over the last two years, I have come to learn and understand just […]

1984 to 1988, in London, England, reading law. Other than the first year, they were hard years. Second year, living on my own in Shepherd’s Bush, was probably the worst.
