Just check the demeaneuor of the Selangor PKR EXCO mandore in white vashty (as we predicted) in Malaysiakini TV on 30/1/10 vis a vis his “prostrations” and “salutations” to his “Tuan” MB of Selangor. It only reminds us of the way the immediate past MIC Selangor EXCO mandore “prostrated” to his UMNO “Tuan” MB Selangor.
Giving out piecemeal handouts of RM50.000.00 to Tamil Schools and Hindu Temples is no real and permanent solution to the Indian problems in Selangor. By the stroke of his pen of the Selangor MB can grant land to all Hindu temples and crematoriums, Tamil Schools, squatters and Indian settlements in Selangor. It would not only offer a permanent solution but about half of the critical Indian problems in Selangor would be solved.
The Selangor “Tuan” MB has 100% powers to solve this Indian problem. But he would not do so. Because PKR, DAP and PAS think they may lose Malay votes so never mind the Indian suffering!. How then is he any different from previous UMNO regime under MB Khir Toyo.
To compound matters we now have four blind follower PKR Indian mandores in Selangor to implement PKR’s mandorism policies against the Selangor Indians in particular.
We are not even asking these four PKR Indian mandores to resign or even publicly ask their “Tuan” why state land is denied to all Hindu temples and crematoriums, all 98 Tamil Schools and Indian squatters and settlements.
All what we are asking for is for them to put an end to the 53 year old UMNO’s and now ably continued by PKR, DAP and PAS mandore policy using the MIC and to move on.
If you cannot help just, keep your MPs’ and Exco jobs by all means but we are not going to tolerate any forms of mandorism to further continue to cheat the Indians who have suffered enough for 53 long years. Especially through the conduit pipe of the three Tamil dailies.
Confucius once said that a thousand mile journey begins with a single step. If the “Tuan” Selangor MB, Anwar Ibrahim, Kapitan Lim Guan Eng and Hadi Awang deliberately refuses to permanently solve even this aforesaid Indian state land problem which is 100% within their powers just because they may lose Malay votes then the Indians cannot expect PKR, DAP or PAS to address the scores of the other critical Indian problems.
Where do we go from here then? Self help. The Indian Political empowerment:- http://www.humanrightspartymalaysia.com/books/TheWayForwardEnglishversion.pdf
One little boy was brought to our attention in our Panthal that he had lost his mum in the din of things. Gokulan as he told us, was in Std four, but still little. He looked bewildered when I first set eyes on him, but soon after we had contacted his father using the handphone number Gokulan gave us, he settled down with a little more confidence, to wait for his father to come and pick him up. His father showed up about an hour later and he told us how grateful he was. My response to him was that we do not need to be thanked , what we were doing on the larger plane as Hindraf made it our duty to take care of every little aspect of the future we were all struggling for – his son included. Of course when Gokuklan left with his father, I could see expression of innocent gratitude in his eyes. These little things sometimes seem to evoke within me great passions and as I get older my emotions often overtake me.
Then there was Mariappen whom I have talked about in my other earlier writing, a whole family. Mariappen, his wife, and three sons, denied of their first and fundamental right as citizens of this country, showed up at the Panthal. They were all so surprised to see me there as much as I was surprised to see Mariappen show so much responsibility by bringing his whole family for Thaipusam to Penang from Kulim. He smelled of stale alcohol and I looked suspiciously at him as I do everytime I find him in a similar state. But he vehemently denied and he said it was last night’s. I told him, if he gave up his drinking and at the next Thaipusam he carried a Kavadi I would dance for his Kavadi, something I have never done in my entire life. You should have seen the look on his face and on his wife’s eyes when I said that. Again it is these little things like this that makes my life so meaningful.
There were so many little eventful things that happened today. I am so happy today. A small team of highly committed Hindraf team in Penang - put together such a wonderful exhibition for the people, to tell them that Hindraf was well and kicking and we were moving on to become the Human Rights Party of Malaysia, to lead them on.
They did such a wonderful job with a minimum of resources. They get nothing back personally from any of this, they only get many hours of additional work, maybe tension with their spouses – in one case Annathurai even had his wife and little daughter involved in the work of inviting the people on the streets to visit the exhibition that the others in the team had prepared for them. All of this gives me an exhilarating feeling, even though the organizing team was small, they were highly effective and so committed.
Every little thing we do has to do with people, if we believe in people, we will all be surprised at what little people can do. Hindraf stands for the little people, and watch out what we little people will do for this country. We just had one political Tsunami, watch out for the next.
