Poor but bright Indian girl’s ambition to be doctor, but unable to buy school workbook in prosperous Malaysia with world’s tallest Twin Towers.
The student’s mother can no longer work because of mental illness. Mother and daughter live in one room at RM 100 rentals per month where they cook, eat and sleep. When even their low cost flat went on auction as they could not pay the RM 200 or so installment.
To add insult to injury, the Welfare department gives them only RM 80 per month.
Had they been a Malay muslims, the Pusat Zakat, Baitumal, Jakim, some Yayasan or other corporate bodies, GLCs, etc would have bailed them out.
But as poor Indians, made poorer in One Malay-sia by pure neglect, this is the pain and suffering they have to endure.
