Parents are setting such a bad example for their children

Have you ever wondered where children pick up their bad habits from, such as smoking, double parking, throwing rubbish everywhere and many others?

Is the blueprint just a political eyewash?

Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak launched the federal government’s Blueprint for the Indians last Sunday. He described the blueprint to uplift Indians in Malaysia, with an allocation of more than RM1 billion, as a serious document and not just “empty talk”.

Why all the huff over Zakir Naik?

Surely Malaysia and its people are built on a much stronger footing than to be threatened by one man who claims to be an inter-faith scholar but has a skewed view of everything around him. We have made Zakir Naik woefully big by giving him too much space in our media and lives.

Fostering unity through the creative arts

Malaysia’s longest-running theatre production, ‘Mud: The Story of Kuala Lumpur, is coming to an end on April 30, 2017. The musical staged at Panggung Bandaraya in Kuala Lumpur for three years underscores the empathy that binds three characters from three communities as they live their lives through the vagaries and vicissitudes of an emerging multi-ethnic society in 19th century colonial Malaya.

30pct for bumiputra has validity and expiry

Now to put things back to its original perspective - and that should bring to mind that the 30 percent reservations for bumiputra is a reasonable privilege and assistance given to help boost up their standards of living, wealth and status in Malaysia - let alone to help the bumiputra catch up with the ‘successes’ of the Chinese Malaysians and Indian Malaysians in the rat race, who were then moving at a faster pace and well ahead in almost every field throughout the nation.

Another blueprint for disaster?

Yet another blueprint for the Indian Malaysian community is to be announced on Sunday April 23, 2017. This blueprint is the prime minister’s initiative to give hope to the Indian Malaysian community in return for their vote. Unfortunately, the bureaucrats do not seem to be involved in the design and implementation of this plan. Private individuals, NGOs and some businesspersons have provided input and rolled out the blueprint.

Not fake, but manipulated news

The Sarawak division of the Malaysian Trades Union Congress (MTUC) is disturbed and embarrassed by the PM’s claim that cost of living in Malaysia is the lowest in Asean. The PM had relied on the Economist Intelligence Unit 2017 Global survey on the cost of living in 153 cities worldwide.
