PART 1


PART2

Cast & Malaysian Indians - Still !!

First things first , before go in depth of this topic , let we see few definition and scope of this article :

Cast - In the Hinduism, there are casts. A cast is a rank that is given to a human already when it’s born.

Scope of this article : Rational thinking , Castism among Malaysian Indians ONLY .

This topic been in my mind since very long time , now the time come for to write about this sensitive issue . As usual , my idea for each topic provoked by my personal experience . Few weeks back , when and i and friends lepak(chit-chat) in mamak stall , we end up discussing about this cast things .

Even when im young teenager , my father try to teach me , about this cast related things , whenever he open this topic , i just will walk away , i simply don't want to know about cast , i afraid i also will end up being like them , practising Hindu cast system in 21st century .

Are this cast system still exist among Malaysian Indians? still practised ? You will be surprised if you get know that , Malaysian Indians still practising this nonsense until today , but i silence , very subtle , in other word , under the blanket , lol . Ya we can't see it officially , stated in any form , or asked openly . But this system still very much alive , don't believe me ?ok . Try this , especially when marriage time , if it is a love marriage , the hottest issue among the adults will be the cast of the guy site or girl site . I even got many personal experience , even thou my parents are friendly and OPEN MINDED , one day when i forced to argue about this cast issue to my father , the words he say that " IF you love and married a girl from a wrong cast , i won't even enter you house " i always will remember that words . I also find out that , many BF and GF , include my friends ,who in serious relationship , they already discus about this cast things , to satisfies their parents who blindly following the cast system and to make sure no problem appear from both site when getting marry in future . There are many other experience i faced regarding this cast , but it quite sensitive and hard to explained .

Now we look this system in more logical and rational point of view :
"At the beginning there were only four casts; the priest cast, the warrior cast, the worker cast, and the servant cast. When these casts were gradually broken, new casts came into being, and by the year 1900 there were about 3000 different casts in India."( sited , click here )

We Malaysian Indians origin from india , so we adopt almost ever tying from there . Ok , let us don't talk about India , no point talk about Hindus in India . Im not a Hinduism prof to do research and write about Hinduism , as a simple and humble Hindu , i only can think rationally in the sense of imagination about what happen thousands of years back .

As you can see , the fact above , originally there been only 4 cast in Hinduism . I admire Hinduism , because , each term or things( adat resam) we follow ,there will be good explanation behind it . That's the beauty of Hinduism . For sure , there will be very good reason behind the Cast System which formed by our great great ancestors .

In my point of view ....... In the ancient time , when the word "science" not exist, lol , people been live in the group base on their occupation , wealth and influence . For example , a man who work in grave yard , stay outside of the village , and the businessman live in the middle of the village , the well known worrier stay with king , and the brahmins stay in temple area . when time past by , when the Aryans conquer India , the Cast system been implemented to class this peoples . Because the normal labours not clean because of their work nature , they restricted from enter temple and other clean places . The worriers and businessman important for the village/country , so they given special priority . And the brahmins become soo special because they always with god/temple . On that time , no detergents for the labours to clean their self , dirty people stay dirty , no education that time , unknowledgeable people , stay unknowledgeable . In the long run it become a hard core CAST SYSTEM , and low cat people been discriminated in many ways . (ooopppfff , i had a very difficult time to explain this , not easy )

Now back to present tense . Im really sorry if i offend anyone , i have to say this : Preciously we can notice , so call low cast people's life style , house environment , and talking dialect , will make others to think twice to mix with them . Now everything change , modern live make everything look the same , having the same lifestyle , education level, and talking dialect , everything becoming more harder to be differentiated .

Again , lol , in my point of view , in this modern era , people who got good education , wealth , and high influence , are considered as the high cast of this century . People who don't have all of this , will be know as low cast .

A question for people who still following Cast System .
If you from a high cast people , what your cast can do for you ?
  1. Can get a lot of a land form state office?
  2. money for no reason from any bank?
  3. a degree or masters without going to collage/university?
  4. high pay salary , without any qualification ?
NONE of above , lol . Than , What make you still follow this useless CAST SYSTEM ??

Children Living Parent's Dream

New template , new look , new atmosphere , i myself feel gigi to use by blog , need to play around to get use to it . This sudden change is to obey by readers request to change by blog's old template , here you go , a new template(blog's theme) as you all want .

Story time , Children Living Parent's Dream.... This particular topic hits my mind after i saw today's news , hundreds of students get straight 5As and 7As in their UPSR exam . Wow , congrats to you all .

Parents nowadays really taking care of their children , event before a child born , they already have a dream about the future of the unborn baby . Since the first day the baby born , everything done by the parents to make sure bright future of their children . Their child grow and become a adult . At that point of time , if we turn back and look at the life of the child , we can notice that , the child , all this time until he grow up be a adult , he/she has been leave the dream of their parents .

The child go to the primary school the parents choose . When finishing their primary school, the child fulfill parent's first dream , getting excellent UPSR result . In a such young age , the kind overcome all the pressure and do it for their parent . Children's exam result is of the pride collection of parents nowadays .Than the children enter secondary school . Here the children becoming a teenager . Here , the parents moll their child according to their dream , from the people they talking to until the way they dress up . When the option of Science or Arts stream come in to picture after form 3 , the parents push the children according to their(parents) dream , most of the time . Here comes the result of SPM at the end of secondary school life . This also the time the dream of the parents come true again , by the time the result come out , the parents already chose the higher education path of their child , according to their(parents) dream . Most of the time , the children also follow the path choose by their parents . Parents go back home happily , and the son/daughter go to the university or collage ,choice of their parents , carrying the dream of the parents . After few years , the children fulfill major part of their parents dream by graduated as a Lawyer , Engineer , Doctor , IT professional , and etc .

Now the teenager enter another part of their life as young man/woman . But their parents dream not finished yet . The parent's dream even include , how their children's live partner should look like . Hence , the young man/woman will married with live partner choose by their parents according to their dream . If the young man/woman have their own choice of live partner , they have to make sure all the criteria meets their parents expectation , include cast(Indians).

Now you all can see , how a child living their parents dream ? Actually most of the youngster not bad as the parents always describe . The children(youngsters) willing to live the dreams of their parents , for the happiness of their parents . At the same time , im also not saying that , parents doing something bad . Actually parents working hard for the well being of their children . What i trying to emphasis is, just give a small space to your child, so THEY CAN LIVE THEIR OWN DREAM .

Note:This post follows Malaysian education system , UPSR PMR SPM, lol . For most of you , this post wont make any sense , but few who out there who realy can feel or experienced what i try to explain , this post i specialy dedicate to you all .

Close Down All Tamil Schools - Should We ?

Most of the time i will get inspiration to write an article comes from conversation with my friends or personal observation . This post is the second type . two days back , when passing by few blogs , reading the articles , one particular article make me stop and read it until finish . By the time i finish read it , i decided to not just comment but write whole new article to reply that specific article . The title of the article is "Close Down All Tamil Schools" . The blogger just referring to an article which came out on year 2000 . But the way he argue the facts make me write this reply article . Note : i does not have any personal problem with him , just voicing out my point of view . If can read the article i talking about(click here) , before continue reading this article. Because i do not want cut and past his whole post into this article .

He started his article by connecting Tamil schools with gangsterism . Than relating , poor education system of
tamil schools lead to born of young Indian gangsters . Cool . He continued with by stating , not much can be achieved by learning tamil . He ask , all Tamil schools should be closed down , and all children should enrolled in National school. Later he suggest a solution to teach Tamil in National School .

How dare he can say all that , Tamil schools are image of Indians , the pride of each ethnic depends on their language , ........ Don't worry , i wont argue that same old hypocrite sentences . Let we talk in wider and more rational manner in discussing the fate of Tamil Schools .

Back to his point , Tamil schools born place for Indian gangsters because they can't cope up in secondary school . OK i admit that, if we now in the year before 1999 . Can't you see , Tamil schools transformed into a place which produce dozens straight 7A's students . Especially after year 2000 . Ya i admit , still there some drop outs , but not serious as he said . Compare and see , in
UPSR nowadays , Indian students from tamil schools getting Straight 7As are far more than the Indian student who get straight 5As in National Schools . He questioned the parents who neglect the future of their child by sending them to tamil school . Recent facts showing that , more and more Indian parents sending their child to tamil schools . Because they know which is good for their child .

"I studied in a national school and learnt to read, write and communicate in Tamil without much problem although my mother tongue is
Malayaalam. Isn't that enough?"(Part of his article) , My answer will be , not enough at all . Why ? with just read and communicate in Tamil can make him feel and do all this :

Culture -
Culture covers many aspects , few attributes which make a culture pride is ,
Litereture(Sastera) , holly song(tevarem) , historical facts( ramayanem , etc ) , prayers ( saraswathy poojei ) , adat resam( this in malay , i don't know how to mention it in english) and many more . A student in a tamil school will be thought in all this things indirectly though the Tamil school's teachers and culture . It is the way of life in Tamil schools . This atmosphere not possible at all for Indian students in National schools . A student can't feel non of this , by just knowing read and communicate in Tamil .

Entertainment -
Do you think and believe , a good song or movie only can be produced with in depth knowledge of that language ? For me yes , for example ,
tamil nadu's songs more superior in quality compare to tamil songs from any other part of the world . Why ? beside , music technology and good voice , lyrics of a song play the vital part in a song . If you notice each song is a quality poem . A poem will be manipulated with different words , music technology , and good voice to produce a famous and hit song . Even to sing a hip hop or rap song like our Yogi b or chacrasonic , we need a good lyrics and accurate pronunciation to come out with this kind songs . Do you think , with just read and communicate in Tamil , can make us do all this things properly ? If you think yes , Yogi b and chacrasinoc will be our last export of rapers to Tamil Nadu , lol .

I can go ahead and write whole day , but it is hard to explain this
sophisticated things , even the facts above i tried my best to explain with my not well verse engilsh .

Back to simple facts .
Im not Tamil school crony until neglect national unity . One school for all , only possible if :
  • No one have hidden agenda for the survival for their own language .
  • The government fair to all languages .
  • Everybody believe and given chance to believe that they are true Malaysians , and not so called Malaysians .
Sorry for the complication and the length of the article . I can't make it shorter or simpler with my not well versed english , lol .

NOTE : i invited the owner of the "Close Down All Tamil Schools" article to read and comment , lets wait and see .

Unsettled Public Facility

This is the picture of small public hall at the ground floor of a flat , near my place . why it looks like this ? Reason , few month back , approximately about 5 months , destroyed in fire . Before that , the small public hall been used by the flat residents for birthday , marriage function , and election campaign booth . The small public hall which been one of the use full flat facility , now out of order since last 5 months .

This place been visited by my area's
MP(Member of Parliament) and ADUN( Ahli Dewan Undangan Negeri) . The drama here is , the MP( Indian ) is from KEADILAN , and the ADUN from UMNO . ADUN of my area , visited this place , and inform the residents of the flat that , there is enough fund available to fix this place immediately . But the residents do not want the ADUN fix the place . They want the MP of our area fix the place for them because most of them openly admit that they vote for this new opposition MP and now they want to see how this new MP replying their "mandat" . After few days, the MP came to this place , and the residents voice out their request . The MP replied that , this issue/problem under ADUN and he can't do much about it . Still the residents adamant , and they want the MP to solve this issues and not the ADUN . To satisfie the residents, the MP promised to fix the place and went back . No news from the MP after that , and the ADUN still waiting to fix the place , and this situation remain the same since last five months .

The point here , this public facility need to be fixed , but whose mistake is this ,until this small public hall not been fixed even after five months?
  • Is that the mistake of adamant flat residents who does not understand "bidang kuasa" of ADUN and MP ?
  • Is that the mistake of ADUN who fail to convince the adamant residents ?
  • or is that mistake of MP who make fault promise and make the residents wait?
End of the day , the residents didn't get anything , and the politicians not doing anything ......

Obama chalks up historic win

Democrat candidate Barack Obama has been elected as the United States first black president following his historic win over his Republican rival John McCain.

The 47-year-old father of two, who will be inaugurated as the 44th US president on Jan 20, 2009, has however inherited an economy mired in the worst financial crisis since the 1930s, two wars in Afghanistan and Iraq and a nuclear showdown with Iran.

Television networks projected his victory over McCain after Obama solidified traditional Democratic states and cut deep into the Republican territory which his rival needed to control to win the White House.

Obama garnered 338 against McCain's 163 of the 538 electoral college votes. He won 62 million voters (52 percent), while McCain has 55 million voters (47 percent).

Obama's historic inauguration will complete a stunning ascent to the pinnacle of US and global politics from national obscurity just four years ago and close an eight-year era of turbulence under President George W Bush.

At 12.20pm local time, McCain conceded defeat and congratulated Obama on his victory.

Malaysian Indian Bloggers( MIB ) - Bias

Malaysian Indian bloggers(MIB) , founded by raja (raajarox.com). MIB bring many Malaysian Indian bloggers together and create network among them . MIB's really active when last Malaysia's election season . Most of the news covered by MIB's , are about , weakness of rulingHindraf activities , and other politic stuffs which favorable to the apposition parties. Can be said , we notice or not , MIB became a unofficial medium for the apportions spread their news . Most interesting part , this done voluntarily by MIB's for the sack of Indian Community benefit. I am one of MIB's , and i am proud do update my blog with latest political news that time.

Time past by , the election finishes , and the apportions fully untiles the Indians and also MIB . After the election Malaysian Indians include many MIB delight with the election's result . The apportion get a historical win , took over five states . Many promises made by the apportionnoticeable promises :
party , before election to the Indians . Most
  • Release five hindraf leaders form ISA
  • No temple will be demolished
  • etc ......
Almost eight months passed by , we can see that, both of the most noticeable promises clearly been violated by the apportions . In easy words " Janji tak serupa pikin ". We understand , the oppositions just in charge of few state government , and do not have any power towards ISA issues . Still a newbie in rulling a goverment(state) . Never mine , but how about another temple been demolished in Ampang few weeks back? Ampang under Selangor which being govern by PAKATAN RAKYAT .

Lastime , before election , MIB's point out and question each misleading of Barisan National , untill some MIB's voice out their opinion like an real reporter . What happen to thous MIB's now , we can notice allot of misleading Pakatan Rakyat's actions , and still many promises stay as unfulfilled promises . Why no MIB really questioning this as lastime? Are we MIB's only will question the misleading on BN and not Pakatan Rakyat ? Is Anuar Ibrahim our neighbour , or Karpal sigh is our uncle ? So what the reason make we MIB's staying away from questioning the misleadings of the Pakatan Rakyat ?

Most our news mediams , which only cover the goodness of BN , we MIB's should not be like that but be more fair about our articles rather than looks like official medium for PAKATANRAKYAT only . Be fair , question any issues without differentiating BN or PAKATAN RAKYAT . DON'T BE BIAS......

Unwanted things , Wanted day

Deepavali is over , but im still in very much deepavali mood , lol . Everyone already back to their normal day life , but my mind still stick to deepavali mood and i cannot return to daily normal life . What im doing after deepavali until today ?

Last
monday , was Deepavali , but the festive atmosphere can be noticed since last friday , becasue many Indians start took off and actively moving around , preparing to celebrate festival of light . At the same time , this festival still comes with some unwanted activities/following which make the eyes of the observes have some negative perspective towards Deepavali . Hope this explains the meaning of the title .

Each unwanted points/activities below , came from my own experience mean which i saw with by own two eyes .
  • Two days before Deepavali , Saturday . Afternoon , I ride across shop lots . There are two "Kedai Pajak " and two jewelry shops there , both of the Kedai Pajak is full , full with our Indians , only Indians,hhhmmm. And other two jewelarry shop is empthy .Why we Indians still have to sell or "Gadai" our golds to celebrate Deepavali ......
  • A day before Deepavali , Sunday . I ride across a junction , main junction of my place . I notice three INDIANS , holding bear bottle(big) and enjoying their self . A malay uncle( pak haji ) , who riding his bike infront of me , shake his head with a cheap look . hhmmm...
  • Deepvali day , not bad , the Deepavali shows at TV2 and TV3 better than years before this . Better , Our artist( Indian Artist , mannin maitergal ) , took part in this shows wearing traditional costume and not in their normal jeans koyak . Yet , they sing a song from , their own new album which the lyrics sounds like this " Kamachi , love pannedi " , OMG , its Deepavali man , look at Malay artist on raya time , they in traditional costume , will sing same Hari Raya song , again and again . Why not our artist also do the same , rather than be selfish in promoting own album , hhhmmmmm
  • Two days before Deepavali(Saturday) until a day after Deepavali(tuesday) , our youngsters , their mineral water is bear(tiger , heiniken , etc) ,and wiskey( chivas , black label , etc ) . We understand , it is festive season , once or twice if necessary , we have this alcohol drinks to celebrate and share the joy with others, why our youngsters end up drinking this things every night or whenever meet thier friends in this festive season , hhmmmm
Unwanted things , Wanted day ...........

Happy Deepavali

After a compact week , here we are , in a weekend , this time , it is not just any normal weekend , a long weekend which will come with festival of lights , Deepavali . So enjoy this happy day with family and friends . For who are far from family and friends try download and watch any new tamil movies and may your sweet memories of past Deepavali with your family and friends company you .

Brickfields - Please Support

My last post was on last friday , hhmm , interval of 4 days . I had a happening weekend , book hotel in Singapore via Internet for December holiday, lepak half of KL with my collage friends , went Genting Casino , and had delicious Chinese food for lunch and dinner for two days in row . You see , every action got its reaction . All this activity make me really exotic and feel sick since saturday midnight . Until i need go hospital today morning . I got allot of issues to be blog , but i really can't crack my head and stretch my fingers to write out a article because of my health condition . Looks like i already enjoy to much and have to complete all the delayed work in upcoming few days before Deepavali . So Townguy will be in tight schedule until Deepavali .

But before that , let me share useful information with you all , its regrading Brickfields KualaLumpur .

Deepavali Event

Place : Bricfields , Kuala Lumpur
Date : 23th October , Thursday
Time : About 7pm

Coming thursday , 23th October , Timbalan Datuk Bandar Dato Saravanan , invite our Deputy Prime Minister to Brickfields . This is to show the important of Bricfields as Indian's economic center especially on Festive Season( Deepavali ) . The good news is , if our DPM impressed , Brickfields will be acknowledged as Malaysia Indian's Business Center or Little India officially . The sad part is , there is no enough publicity for this event . I get know to this event through TV2 Tamil News . Hence , my dear readers please spread this news and visit Bricfields especially

Easy to say , but when we start spread the news , the reactions we will get is:
1) aahhh , Dato Saravana do , who want go , he is a ch..t.r , g.ngs..r . what for i want support his event?
2) oh Dato Saravanan , that MIC guy ah , i do not want to support any event which organise by MIC ?
3) MIC just want look for publicity throw this event , i do not want waste my time with all this .
4).............................. and so on

What i trying to say is , do not see this event in political view . This kind our excuses tend to be voiced out in today's political climate where we Indians divided into few groups( Hindraf , Barisan National , Pakatan Rakyat ) . Don't make Malaysia's politic like Tamil Nadu's politic . When a party do good , another party interrupt , and this will continue in cycle . End of the day we public will get nothing form this political drama .

So , my dear Malaysian Indians , we already had enough , we already lost many little Indias in this country , like Masjid India , Lebuh Ampang , took over by other parties . We can't effort to loose another one . Now there is a chance , be united , show your support , and claim your rights .

Hope see you all in Brickfields on coming Thursday ................ on that particular day and time .

Deepavali Banner Gone !! : More Atrocious

This is continuation of my yesterday's article(Deepavali Banner Gone !!) . It is better to glance throw yesterday's article which you can see below of this article before continue reading this one . Originally i did not have idea to publish continuation of yesterday's article , but situation and disappointment make me add more with yesterdays article . Special thanks for blogger viji who continuously following my articles .

Usually , i tell a long story before show a picture , but today , let me show the picture first , who ever read my yesterday's article maybe already know what is going on and already guess what i am going to tell today , the picture first :
Snapped today , 17th October 3pm .

Where is our Hari Raya banner ? look the picture carefully , our Hari Raya picture over layered , covered by another banner . Why they choose our banner to be over layered , why not other Hari Raya banners which placed next to our banner ? Because , we are harmless and JUST normal citizen ? I do not want go on explain whose banner is that , each and every detail in the banner clearly stating whose banner is that , the picture talks for it self. What i can say , zero manners , atrocious , unprofessional , unethical ? You may ask me , so what , just a banner , why you make it as a big issue ? As a normal citizen , small business owner , there is no value for father's words . Even after my father argue it properly , "they" did not show any respect , other vise , acting more atrociously . OLD government , or , NEW government , value for a Malaysia Indian is still the same , my personal experience as an example .............. My next post is "Playing Politics , But In Wrong Tempo" .

Deepavali Banner Gone !!

What Deepavali , What banner ? When ? who ? How ? Relax relax , I'm getting to it , slow and steady so you all can understand well , lol . First come first , introduction , Just got almost two weeks to go for festival of light( Deepavali ) . My family running a small business , selling mutton . We involve in this business almost for 20 years , Indians are our major customers and Deepavali is the time , our business reach the peak .
Lately , number for Malay customers start to increase . In my opinion , it is good we attract Malays to buy mutton , because their market is big(population) . So what i suggest last Hari Raya to my father was , "We do a banner , wishing Selamat Hari Raya , and place it in a strategy place in our neighborhood " , my father not really key in to this idea , but i brain wash my father( First time i manage to do that , haha) , and make him order a Hari Raya banner with our companies name and my dad's and my contact number printed at the bottom of the banner . Its not a small banner , quite big also .
Just after we receive the Hari Raya banner( three weeks back )

We place it exactly opposite of a mosque in my place . Guess what , my idea worked , when thou not a big success , but my father get few "Thanks" phone calls from public(Malays) , they also say , they will order mutton for upcoming "Kenduri" . Banggenye saye( I'm proud ) , this success make my father accept my next similar idea . That is print a banner for Deepavali . Same concept , wishing happy Deepavali and company name and contact number at the bottom of the banner . Two weeks back , we receive the Deepavali banner , the design was simply superb . My father tell me "Better we apply a permit from local state government office before heng this Deepavali banner " , i replied " never mine , see at our Hari Raya banner , already there for three weeks , no one disturb , so don't worry , we just place this banner , near a place where Indians come most "(M1) . Than what , i and my father , went heng the banner ( about 9m , 6th Oct ) near a strategy place , not far from where we place the Hari Raya banner . The banner looks really cool , sure will catch whoevr's attention cross that place .
Next day morning , just next mooorning , i cross place with the hope of can see our nice banner again before i go for collage . I crossed that place , aic.......... , where is the banner , my eyes can't believe it , the DEEPAVALI banner not there , but HARI RAYA banner still there( its there since last three weeks) . Straight away i stop and call my father , tell about this( 7th October 11am) . He just say "ok" , nothing else . I feel helpless , a poster which cost RM 300 , missing in action . I went collage with sad . What happen next:

7th October 5pm :
Dad call me , he say :" after you call this morning , i straight away call Shah Alam(HQ) , and ask them straight away , " Why you guys took our banner" , they have no idea and ask me call the local state government office , even thou i really don't know who took the banner , with strict i ask them" Why you guys took our poster" , they admit , actually they who took our poster away . Than i ask them nicely( taroo ) , base on procedure , if avlocal government officer want take away the banner , first they must inform the owner of the banner , not just simply take and keep it . Than i ask what are the reason make them take away the banner , first reason they gave , the banner placed near junction , second we did not took permit to place this banner . I really get angry and ask them back, " ok i admit , it is wrong to place banner near a junction , but permit .. , we dint took any permit for Hari Raya banner and it still there even after three weeks , why you guys only disturb the Deepavali banner ? " , than the officer replied " Encik jangan salah anggap " , than i ask more " there are politician's banner placed exactly near the function , all that you officers not bother about , officer replied " politician punye tak boleh usik encik" . Than at last , the officer ask us come to their office tomorrow morning to pay the fine for DEEPAVALI banner and apply for permit ".

My dad went to their office early next morning( 8th October 7.30am ) , first they do like don't know and ask him to wait , after he rise his voice and ask question , a officer came and entertain him . They say , they misplaced or already send the banner to Shah Alam HQ , they also not sure , what a irresponsible answer . What to do , new state government , same old attitude , even worse . Than they ask my father come to their office few times , and this saga continued for one week , and at last , last monday( 13th October ) , my dad call their office and they confirm that , they lost the Deepavali banner , and say their famous sentence " MAAF UNTUK KESULITAN ".
Guess what , the HARI RAYA banner , still there with no one's disturb .........................

Hari Raya banner still there even after three weeks , snapped last monday( 13th October )

Why "Datuk" for Shah Rukh : MB Melaka

Yesterday i shocked and surprise after go through the headline of Tamil Osai( Tamil daily news paper) , there is a news says that , Shah Rukh Khan( Bollywood's Superstar) will be awarded with "Datuk"( Darjah Mulia Seri Melaka (DMSM)) , by Melaka State Government . After read this news i was queries about , for what proper reason , such a precious title "Datuk" can be awarded to a actor who possibly can't do much for Malaysia's well being . Not only me ,but many Malaysians especially Malaysia Indians . There are few blogger discussed bout this thing to . With no proper explanation given by Melaka's state government , i thought , Shah Rukh awarded with such title because he have lots of fans in Malaysia( especially Malays) , lol .

Today another Tamil daily news paper( Tamil Nesan ) , come out with a news which contains the explanation of Menteri Besar of Melaka regarding this issue . MB Melaka says , " Datuk been awarded to Bollywood actor Shah Rukh Khan , because he help us( state government ) to promote Melaka in international tourism market through one of a song from his movie "One Two ka four" ."

Good , i am happy as a Malaysian because we Malaysian very kind people , even awarding anyone who contribute for Malaysia's well being , even thou the contribution is small. OK , now let we take a look at some Insiders( Malaysian ) who make the country proved :

( if the pictures & contents to small , place your mouse on this picture , right click , click on " open link in New Tab" , so you can read the content with ease )

Oh my god , im forget to type "Datuk" in front of all the name of people who make our country proud as you can see above . What you say , im not wrong ? why ? oh ya ah , they dint receive any Datuk what . Sorry ah , im quite outdated , i thought all Malaysians who make our country proud will awarded with Datukship , like out Datuk Azhar Mansor , Datuk Lee Chong Wei , Datuk Dr. Sheikh Muszaphar Shukor , lol , ha ha ha . "...." is what this(people in the pictures above) get for their great achievement . Yet , im a very much happy and tolerance Malaysia Indian . GALUR GEMILANG , MALAYSIA BOLEH , KERANAMU MALAYSIA ..........!!

Malaysian Tamils = Malays ( Almost ) - Part 2

NOTE : I think not twice but more than ten time before post this article . Because , base on some senior bloggers , my previous post very much provoking and today's blogging atmosphere not save enough for this kind of post . I'm not discussing about any sensitive issue , but using very subtle and critical facts as examples to show the existing similarities between Malays and Malaysian Tamils . CONTINUE READ THIS ARTICLE IF YOU OPEN MINDED ENOUGH , AS A TRUE MALAYSIAN:

This article is the continuation of yesterday's post "Malaysian Tamils = Malays ( Almost )" . But first come first , today's talk of the country " Badawi(PM) will retire march 2009 , about five months from now . He will be replaced by Najib , current DPM . Back the topic , Thanks for all my readers , and commentators who write a short( actually very long , lol ) and constructive comments base on yesterdays article . In the comments , the discussion topic been diverted from main title to somewhere comparing which school is better for build True Malaysians . Even thou diverted , yet i am really happy to discuse a good topic with my commentators . See the bright sight , i get know that , there are many readers out there ready to discuss about which school is best to build true Malaysians, SK or SJK . Wonderful , i got an idea to write an article , title , " SK Vs SJK - TRUE MALAYSIANS" , coming soon to your nearest townguy's blog , lol , really .

Here comes the case study of today ( continuation of yesterday's article ), another most significant similarities between Malays and Malaysian Tamils is , "Always Not Enough" , in Malay "Selalu Tak Cukup" .

As all Malaysian well aware , Malays(Bumiputra) of this country entitled with special prevelages , which know as "Hak Istimewa Bumiputra" . This special prevelage been stated in Malaysian constitution , Article 153 .Base on this article . In my opinion the special treatment( Hak Istimewa Bumiputra ) can be divided into tangible( official ) and intangible( unofficial ) form . Let us don't discuss about the intangible form , because it usually can be field in you normal life if you are not a bumiputra and quite sensitive to discussed about . Tangible hak bumiputra covers every aspect of human life , from buying home to admition for university and do a own business . After New Economy policy launched in , this Hak Istimewa Bumiputra been enforce more aggressively to improve the social level of Malays in this country . Everything done by government for Malays like Spoon feeding . Malaysia's Ex-PM Tun Dr.Mahathir have once stated in his speech , " Orang melayu disediakan semua yang dipelukan untuk maju , macam makanan yang sedia untuk dimakan , government dah pun cuma hingga suap makanan yang disediakan , tapi , orang melayu yang tidak mahu makan " . Many Malays angry with his statement , but he din't give a dame about that because he angry with Malays who reluctant to improve their self . This shows how spoon feeding the government to Malays all this time , but yet you and i can see , Malays say , they not enough with what they get as Malays(Bumiputra) and involve in demonstration against the goverment it self . Please make this clear here ,im not questioning Artcle 153 , just taking this issue to compare Malays with Malaysian Tamils . So don't be sensitive and assume that im questioning Hak Istimewa Bumiputra . The malays reluctant to improve fast ennough with sea wide apportunities . What the other races in Malaysia doing at the same time line , the opprtunity not wide open as Malays , yet they squezee through small opprtunities , work hard and improve their life style , aspecialy Chinese community .

Now we look at Malaysian Tamils , before i start talk , are you already start see the similarities ? yes/no , lol . Malaysian Tamils , largest ethnic group in Malaysia Indians .They do not have special prevelage as Malays . Becuse they are the largest ethnic group in Malaysia Indians( thirt largest Race in Malaysia ) , all the the benefit from goverment will reach this ethnic before disperse to other Malaysian Indian ethnic such as Malaysian Malayalee , Malaysian Telegu or Punjabi . You may turn back and ask , how it is possible? It is possible , if you aware , most of Malaysia Indian representatives( mostly politicians) are Tamils . In this 21st centuty im not provoking any Indian ethnic issue , but just take this whole fact as an case study to show the similarities between Malays and Malaysia Tamils . Back to story , the benefits which reach Malaysia Indian Community , mostly enjoy my Malaysian Tamils becuse of thier advantage as majority . The benefits are financial aid for tamil schools, vocational training , political power allocation , and etc . I make this point clear again , the goverment does not allocate the benefits specially for Malaysian Tamils , but they allocate the benefit for whole Indian community , but i saying the Tamils get more benefits because Malaysian Tamils are majority compare to other Malaysian Indian ethnics . Lately , i read a news in The Star newspaper, stating that , Vise Human Resource Minister( representative of MIC ) reveal , goverment allocated about 900 vocational training seats for Indians , but just about 250 Indian students register for the course . The goverment , doing their best for Malaysian Indians , but we our self not aware of this opportunities . End up pointing our fingers fowards goverment and accuse them for not doing enough for our community . Here i say WE , means , Malaysian Tamils . What other Malaysian Indian ethnics such as Malaysian Malayalee , Malaysian Telegu , or Punjabi( sikh ) did in the same timeline where we busy accusing the goverment . They aware of their position as minority , use well the small opportunities , work hard and develop their life style . Good example , we can look at Malaysian Punjabi ( sikh ) community today.

Hope by now , you understand a bit atleast about the complex issue which i tried my level best to explain to all of you . As a conclusion , Malays and Malaysian Tamils demonstrate another similiraties which is , fail to identifie and utilise the oppotunities which the goverment provide , and at the same time , lack behind other races and ethnic . Sorry to be sound very racist or ethnist , lol , since last two days . All the fact above , i only took and talk about it just as an case study to explain the similarities between Malays and Malaysian Tamils . I my self is a Malaysian Tamil , and True Malaysian , just take this article as an exercise for your mind to understand the complexity of races and ethnic . Thanks for the support .

Malaysian Tamils = Malays ( Almost )

Title definition , Malaysian Tamil is one of sub ethnic from Malaysian Indians in whole. They also majority compare to other Malaysia Indian ethnic such as Malaysian Malayalee , Malaysian Telegu , and punjabi(even they not admit , lol ) . Tamils + Malayalee + Telegu + Punjabi = Malaysian Indians( A minority race in Malaysia ,just 7.6% from total Malaysian population ) . Malays are major race of Malaysia ( almost 63% from Malaysian total population ) . Today the topic only covers the Malaysian Tamils and Malays . In general both of this parties have many difference , from political power to population . But if look deep into their mentality , we can identify some similarities.

The most significant similarity which make me aware of this phenomena is , both , Malaysian Tamils and Malays have their own pride and ego as majority . As is say before , Malays are majority of Malaysian population , and Malaysian Tamils are majority within Malaysia Indian ethnic . This article basically will see how Malays show their ego as majority to other races in Malaysia such as Chinese and Indian ; Malaysia Tamils show their ego as majority to other Malaysian Indian ethnic , and identify the similarities.

Most visible example i can use as case study for this topic is SCHOOLs . First we look at Malays . The Sekolah Kebangasaan(SK) are claimed by Malays as a place to unite students from different races to build true MALAYSIANS . They encourage students from other races to join SK . Ya true, if student from different race study under one roof , it can build good understang among them . The hidden agenda of SK is to demonstrate "Ke-anggoggan Bahasa Melayu" . At the same time , Malays feel , they are majority , so other races must master their language(malay) and they do not have to care about learing other races language . If the Malays are really honest in building true MALAYSIANS through SK , they suppose include Mandarin( Major dialect of Malaysian Chinese ) , and Tamil ( Major dialect of Malaysia Indians) in the syllabus of the SK . Malays won't do that , because THE ARE MAJORITY , ego . Now we look at Tamil Schools( SJKT ) . The leaders of Malaysian Indians always stand up for rite of this schools ,they claim , this is the place to unite Malaysian Indians . Come on , it is not Indian School to unite the Indians, but it is just a "Tamil" School . It can be a place to unite Malaysian Tamils not Malaysian Indians . Why there are many Malaysia Indians prefer to send their child to SK rather than SJKT ? Are all Malaysia Indians are Malaysian Tamils ? no rite . For an example , just an example lol , as a Malayalee or Telegu , why i need send my son/daughter to TAMIL school to learn Tamil ?, its no my mother tongue what . Now you where is the failure of SJKT to unite the Malaysia Indians . Many Malaysian Indian leaders( most of them Tamils) aware of this problem , yet , they just close one eye to gain support of the majority( Malaysian Tamils ). If the Malaysian Tamils really honest in using SJKT as the place to unite the Malaysian Indians , they can include , Malayalem , and telegu in the syllabus of SJKT . They(Malaysian Tamils) won't do that ,simply because they are majority , they want other Indian ethnic learn their language(Tamil) , they do not care about other Malaysia Indian's mother tongue , ego .

Now maybe you star getting clear picture of similarities between Malays and Malaysian Tamils . Both of this group claim their self as uniting their country or race but fail to do it because of their hidden agenda and upholding their own mother tongue and ego as a Majority .If you have taffuntil now , ok let me help you . You must understand a east fact that , not all Malaysia Indians are Malaysian Tamil . There are other Malaysia Indians such as Malaysian Malayalee , Malaysian Telegu , or punjabe( im not sure , lol ) . Try to make this fact
clear and start read the article again .


Townguy will meet you all tomorrow with another case study to show more clearly the existance of this phenomena , stay tune with Townguy .
