How I learned to Walk and Live Again

Dinesh Dorai Raj

At 20, Dinesh got into a deadly car accident just as he was about to enter his senior year of college. In this story of true grit, Dinesh talks about how he got back on his feet.

Nearly 5 years ago, I was another typical student at the age of 20 with plenty of dreams. I was supposed to leave for the United Kingdom to complete my final year of studies. This new phase of life had me exhilarated. I didn’t know that in a second, my life would change.

That specific day back in June 2010, I was driving back home when I got involved in a wretched car crash. Surviving despite the extent of the injuries was an amazing miracle to begin with. I suffered a brain concussion, fractured ribs that led to punctured lungs on both sides, a ruptured and dislocated spine that resulted in an injured spinal cord, leaving me unconscious in the ICU for some time.

Meenachis and the Pedobears

Vin Navinder Kumar

Do you still remember your teenage years? 13 years old with raging hormones and puppy love problems. Almost everyone has faced that yet will refuse to admit it.

Back in my school days, puppy love was the thing. Usually, most of the guys would go for the prettiest girl. It was a healthy competition among the baby-faced bachelors. But on Fridays, the baby-faced bachelors faced a common threat – paedophiles. These paedophiles are hood-rats who wear a pair of jeans and (most of the time) the ugliest T-shirt in existence. They come with their EX-5 bikes and have the worst hair colour possible. Since they do not understand the concept of shaving and sport the hairiest face, I dub them as Pedobears.

 

Most of the schoolgirls were crazy about these machas. From then on, you could see 13 to 17 year old girls with a pocket of loose change on the public telephone giggling and blushing and talking about who-knows-what to the pedobears. Selvi, a schoolmate of mine, was a Pedobear victim. There was this one year where we heard that Selvi stopped schooling. We thought she transferred to a different school, which is common. Little did we know, Selvi became a victim of a grizzly pedobear who shagged her and left her. Selvi’s parents knew about the issue after they found out she was bearing Mr.Pedobear’s child.

Another schoolmate became a victim of a pedobear, too. At the time, I used to tell her that she’s going to end up like Selvi. She used to glorify her pedobear boyfriend as a gangster in the whole district. She used to tell how the pedobear ayats her and stuff. And then, one day, the news of her “overnight sensation” spread throughout the local community. Apparently, her video clips were out and the life of another young girl is crushed by a pedobear. This is just two out of many untold stories that happen in many schools and within the Indian community. If you can relate to this issue, then you know it’s something that the people should be concerned about. Read more…

I want to be a Doctor

Sharmini Jana

I grew up watching several parents boasting around announcing to the whole taman and where ever they go on how their children has always wanted to be a doctor ever since they were young. May it be a wedding function, temple thiruvizha, family reunion or wherever they go, there’s always an aunty somewhere talking about this:

Girl-ke/Boy-ke chinne pille-le iruntey doctor aganum nu aasai.

 

These ‘self-announcements’ are done once their children obtained good results for their UPSR/PMR, yes I’m not kidding. When the child managed to get into the science stream, the child is automatically labeled as a doctor by the family without even knowing the child’s real interest/talents and most importantly, the parents are not even aware of the child’s current performance in the class. Once the SPM/STPM results are announced, these are the same parents who either blame/curse the education system/examination paper marking system/ university intake procedure;

Intha varusam nambe pillingeh result eh kavutetanungeh, ellam vote kage tan. Ippo partiya epdi achu nu…

Class le ivanodeh mosama padikeravanunke ellam nalla result tukki kuduterekanungeh, avanungeh aalu.. en magan sonna. Paavingeh..ipdi senjitanungeh…


OR

They would twist and turn the whole ‘self-announcement’ according to the result/courses offered. Read more…

Dark Skinned Meenachis

Zangeetha Raghavan

 

I wrote this after doing several research,reading  on the origins of colourism and based on my own personal experiences. Extensive research has been done in the West regarding this matter.

Colourism among the Indian community. According to Wikipedia,  Discrimination based on skin color, or colorism, is a form of prejudice or discrimination in which human beings are treated differently based on the social meanings attached to skin color.

As you may have realized, this community has a preference for light skinned people. Despite the fact that South Indians are mostly from the Dravidian etymology  and Dravidians mostly are dark skinned our genetic patterns and the climate of the place we originated from.

I am a dark skinned girl from a middle class family and all my life, I have been reminded again and again of my dark skin, in a very negative connotation. Many Indian aunties have given me abundance of free advice on how to make my skin colour lighter ( ranging from applying sandalwood/turmeric powder on my face, to using products such as Fair and Lovely and Fairever). As a child, I wont deny that all this have given me a low self esteem.  I would never leave my house without some powder on my face. And I remember in secondary school where some of my Indian school mates used to call me “Kaka” (crow in Tamil). Of course, 10 years later, looking back I can understand the idiosyncratic behavior of these people and laugh, but can you imagine how it impacted my self esteem back then?

SK Durai : I must admit due to my ignorance, I’ve called many the same.

Bulb Eating Cult

Shalini 

Vanakkam. First of all I would like to confront that this piece of writing were not intended to criticize any spiritual or meditation group but to reveal certain truths in order to salvage our Indian community from continuously have fellowships with “devil”. The journey of this article begins with our Great and Lovely 96 Guruji’s thunai (Yoga Jnana Sitthar Om Sri Raja Yoga Guru Saranam). I guess now you got a hint of which group I’m going to talk about now. Yes, it is none other than the famous RPT (Rajayoga Power Transcendental) group and the great Divine Dato Seri Guruji and Datin Seri Guruji. Some may wondering whom am I and why am I writing this, don’t get shock when I say I am one of the disciples of this Guruji. No confusion, I’ll reveal how I get into this bullshit group and by the way don’t get wrong, I’m not his devotee or his diehard fan disciple.

I’m a graduate form a private university and currently waiting to further my studies. My concern to bring out the truth of this group begins when I was forced to attend this RPT ‘Maha Visuthi’ payerchi this year which cost RM 3, 300.00 per person. My mom and I were introduced to this meditation group by my mom’s close friend in the year of 2007. During that time, we have some problems in our family and basically my mom was in dilemma due to that. So my mom’s friend took this opportunity by recruits her to join this group in which she said this guruji will ease all our problems and show us better life (this is one of the tactic that these followers use to recruit others). In the successful procession with being brain washed by this lady, my mom decided to go for this course and I, who had no idea about this group was also brought together to be follower of this “Guruji@Satanji”.  Read more…

“What did I do wrong?”

Vin Navinder Kumar

When you have children (regardless son or daughter), please do your level best to give them the best life possible. The best life doesn’t mean showering them with tech-toys and money, but giving them love and attention.

The current tsunami of serials on the Tamil channels will get you ladies glued to the screen. At the same time, you men will be working hard day and night and expect your wife to take care of the family (or you would just get pissed drunk with your friends). End of the day, the child will be orphaned even with both the parents around. This is where the complication starts.

The child needs attention and the child will do its best to get it one way or another. Usually, the sons would start vandalizing, then start with the smoking and drinking, and then he goes into a deeper level. He’ll mix with the wrong crowd, do the wrong things, live a wrong life and then die before his time (by getting stomped in the lockup or getting shot or becoming a victim to gang warfare). And then you mothers start crying “What did I do wrong?

Why did your son follow that path in life? Because his parents weren’t there to guide him at the age he needed it most. The parents had neglected the child.

Now, when it comes to your daughters, you know the truth would hurt much more. You’ve probably read the news. Stories like Damini (the rape victim from India) or Nurin, or the recent “cosplay murder”.

You know a lot of things are happening. May your daughter be a 1 year old or whatever, she is always in danger in this society. Still you ignore those and let her do what she wants. What she wants is your attention. When you don’t give it to her, she gets it from people who give the attention she craves just to exploit her.

See how being neglected can impact a child’s behavior…

Machas, Machis and Temples

Taranya Keeren

 

Navarathiri had just started and is going to end in a few days time. It’s been fun going to temple everyday and all but the main purpose I am writing this article is not about Navarathiri, but it’s actually about people’s behaviour in places of worship. As I have been visiting temples these past few days continuously I started noticing some things which we don’t pay much attention to on normal days. As this has been continuously happening it has caught my attention and I decided to write about it to create awareness amongst our people.

The first thing which really gets on my nerve is that I don’t understand why lots of people have the urge to talk when we are praying? Correct me if I am wrong but don’t we go to temples to pray instead of gossip? I have been experiencing this problem for quite some time. Why do people get the urge to talk right in front of the prayer place? I mean a lot of people are concentrating on praying and suddenly we can hear this buzz right next to our ears. I can hear all kinds of gossip about the saree an auntie in front of me is wearing or comments about the hairstyle of the girl standing behind me. PEOPLE! We don’t want comments about other people when we are praying( thank you very much). Auntie, akka and thangachie I don’t want to know the price of your saree. Uncle, anne and thambi I don’t want to know who won yesterday’s match. Please don’t get me wrong, I am not saying you shouldn’t gossip or talk in temple as it’s not my right but what I am saying is that you can always talk further away from the place of worship like in the temple hall or the general area where people are not praying or meditating. Let’s respect the rights of other please because everyone has the right to undisturbed prayers.

Gangster School – Satu Hati, Berani Mati

Nedumaran Elangovan

My late grandfather was a Tamil school headmaster (god bless his soul). His school, SJKT Kota Bharu was located deep inside an estate near Gopeng, Perak. This was during the 60s and 70s mind you. This was the time when the only way out from the cycle of poverty was education. Children went to school to learn, cycling for 10 km, through estate roads, come rain or shine. They cared about education. They knew what they had to do. And they did achieve success.

Being the educationist that he was, if he had take one look at the Indian students of today, it would have broken his heart beyond repair. One quick search on Facebook reveals a sorry sight for Indians. Tons of pages dedicated to idiotic gangs. And the members are all Indian school boys. Some even have school names associated with the gangs.

What we think Indian school kids are like

Kepada kaum India dan pihak berkuasa Malaysia

 

 

Vin Kumar

I think the title got your attention. Now, let me start.

Thaipusam is celebrated by Hindus (especially the Tamil community) to pay vows made to Lord Muruga (mainly) and other Hindu gods. It is one of Malaysia’s biggest attractions. Foreigners love the thaipusam atmosphere as they can see thousands of devotees fullfilling their vows by carrying milk pots, kavadis, getting pierced with belled hooks, etc.

(Continue to read it, I got my points coming up.)

Thaipusam brings good business to the Malaysian Tourism sector. It also brings a good name to our country as people worldwide talk about Thaipusam celebrated in Malaysia.

On the eve of Thaipusam, the Chariot procession takes place from the Amman temple in Lebuh Ampang until Batu Caves.

Hundreds of free- refreshment stalls are put up along the long journey for the devotees and walkers so that they can carry on their journey. Sometimes, there are even bare-footed devotees walking. Thaipusam is the only Hindu celebration I celebrate. So, it’s meaningful to me.

But from what I have seen since my first experience in KL Thaipusam is only 40%  of devotees. The balance 60% are punks who should not live. I don’t care of their families. These punks should be shot dead. Read more…

The Angry Indian Man and Thaipusam

Nedumaran Elangovan

'Konjem Sanja, Muruganee Vithe Yeppam Vittheruvange Evenenge'- actual words of an Indian uncle standing next to me.

Okay, lets us forget about the banners, the cut out and the huge ass garland. Pihak penulis tidak mahu memberi komen tentang pekara tersebut kerana, mungkin disalah tafsir oleh sesetengah pihak sebagai coretan ejen pembangkang, yang ingin menimbulkan huru-hara.

I was in Batu Caves (BC) last night, way up to 6 am this morning. Not to pray, I have to admit, I was there to support some family members who were paying their vows.

The first thing that greeting me was the blaring sounds of air-horns. For 2 fucking kilometers, all I can hear is the irritating sound of the horn, and machas screaming. Confirms my theory that most macha’s that show up during Thaipusam, are attention whores who think irritating people is cool.

This horn made me feel like killing somebody

Then there was this punk wig, WTF? Whats this? Attam 100 Vagai Concert? Ok, now Im going off topic. My anger today is not towards these idiots, but towards someone way higher. The so called temple management committee.chong qi you yong chi

Dear Sirs,

You have been in the committee for how long? As far as I know, you people have been there, sitting on your raised platform (now aircon glass building), shouting

 ‘Puchong, Taman Anggama-vin Parratai ke gavanam, unggel patti Tangamaa jamban kitte nikkerange ungalkage”

Ok, I have to admit, managing a million people is not an easy task, but you did have a long time to practice, didn’t you?  And you have a whole year to prepare, with millions of Ringgit to spare.

And still, every year, it the same old bullshit. Mismanaged crowds, terrible facilities, garbage and incompetent management. Here is something that I have noticed, and here is some suggestions.

Stall/Booth Placement

No stall should be allowed to operate along the main entrance leading to the stair as this causes congestion, removing stalls will allow more space for visitors to walk and breathe.

Yes, there will be people saying,

‘Tamilan business kedukera pakkeriya? Nambe edam kudekelati, vereh yaar nambe makkal ke opportunity kudupa?”.

I say, go ahead give the business to the small business owners, who needs your stupid fun-fair? Scrap you funfair, and you have space for another 50 businesses. Don’t tell me the funfair towkey is Indian now.

Don’t allow non religious, or community related booths in the temple grounds. Ok, I understand MC Mama Jama Puma needs this opportunity, to promote his album ‘Kathi Mel Ratham, Kattil Mel Porattam”. But he can do the same outside the grounds, right? Another space is made available for our small business owner. Read more…
