No Atheists
In A Foxhole

Rudyard Kipling

" ā€œWhen you're left wounded on
Afganistan's plains and

the women come out to cut up what remains,
Just roll to your rifle

and blow out your brains,
And go to your God like a soldierā€
General Douglas MacArthur

" ā€œWe are not retreating. We are advancing in another direction.ā€

ā€œIt is fatal to enter any war without the will to win it.ā€
ā€œOld soldiers never die; they just fade away.
ā€œThe soldier, above all other people, prays for peace,
for he must suffer and be the deepest wounds and scars of war.ā€
ā€œMay God have mercy upon my enemies, because I won't .ā€
ā€œThe object of war is not to die for your country but to make the other bastard die for his.

ā€œNobody ever defended, there is only attack and attack and attack some more.
ā€œIt is foolish and wrong to mourn the men who died.
Rather we should thank God that such men lived.
The Soldier stood and faced God
Which must always come to pass
He hoped his shoes were shining
Just as bright as his brass
"Step forward you Soldier,
How shall I deal with you?
Have you always turned the other cheek?
To My Church have you been true?"
"No, Lord, I guess I ain't
Because those of us who carry guns
Can't always be a saint."
I've had to work on Sundays
And at times my talk was tough,
And sometimes I've been violent,
Because the world is awfully rough.
But, I never took a penny
That wasn't mine to keep.
Though I worked a lot of overtime
When the bills got just too steep,
The Soldier squared his shoulders and said
And I never passed a cry for help
Though at times I shook with fear,
And sometimes, God forgive me,
I've wept unmanly tears.
I know I don't deserve a place
Among the people here.
They never wanted me around
Except to calm their fears.
If you've a place for me here,
Lord, It needn't be so grand,
I never expected or had too much,
But if you don't, I'll understand."
There was silence all around the throne
Where the saints had often trod
As the Soldier waited quietly,
For the judgment of his God.
"Step forward now, you Soldier,
You've borne your burden well.
Walk peacefully on Heaven's streets,
You've done your time in Hell."

Pakatan Harapan is inhospitable to Indian reps of intellect By Terence Netto
Sunday, October 30, 2022
MS : Terrance Netto is spot on in his take on the shady wheeling and dealing within Harapan which has seen evidently successful representatives like Charles Santiago and Sivarasa tossed by the roadside. 
 
While the power brokers in the coalition, Gobind, Loke, Rafizi, Anwar, Sabu have decided that ordinary supporters and potential voters do not deserve any explanation for what appears to be a purge of the intelligentsia, what is worse is the free-for-all speculation by both casual observers and opponents. 
 
And taken together it makes one wonder whether Harapan is really a viable alternative to the self-serving cabal that's now in power...or whether it is really no different. The question then is have they become so arrogant that they do not care what others think? 
 
Or have they gotten so out of touch with the people who have been clamoring for greater transparency and ethical conduct? We do not know whether the coalition's head honchos will deign to speak directly to the people to explain their methods for the "madness" now unleashed.
 
What we do know is that if allowed to continue this way, it will not end well when the results come trickling in on November 20th.


Malaysiakini : COMMENT | PKRā€™s decision to drop incumbent Sungai Buloh MP R Sivasara after DAP dropped incumbent Klang MP Charles Santiago suggests that there is little space in the Pakatan Harapan coalition for Indian Malaysian representatives with intellect.

Ramanujam Ramakrishnan, the replacement for Sivarasa, and V Ganabatirau, the substitute for Charles, are not in the same league as those dropped by Harapan.

The diminution of the intellectual lustre of Indian representatives in Harapan began in GE14.

PKR fielded M Karupaiya, a school leaver who owns a transport business in Padang Serai, in preference to N Surendran, an accomplished human rights lawyer and sometimes counsel to party supremo Anwar Ibrahim during his sodomy trials in the last decade.

Karupaiya has been retained by PKR for GE15. His record in the proceedings of the 14th Parliament indicates he was a non-entity.

Ganabatirau, DAPā€™s replacement for Charles, is nowhere near the latter in terms of performance and capability.

This was probably why he could not make a dent in Selangor Menteri Besar Amirudin Shaari, who earlier this year, sanctioned the formation of a council to advise him on how to alleviate poverty among B40 groups of the Indian population.

Ganabatirau, a state executive council member, was reportedly furious he was not included in the council, while Charles and Sivarasa are stellar members of the advisory body.

The humdrum is often discomfited at evidentiary reflections of their mediocrity.

Although factions are endemic to democratic politics, Santiago declined to fall in line with the evolving factions within DAP.

Focused on work

He stood aloof from them, preferring to concentrate on his work as MP. He grew better at the work with each passing year of his three terms (2008-2021) as a parliamentarian.

He became what the Italian social theorist, Antonio Gramsci, defined as the ā€œorganic intellectualā€.

This is someone cerebral whose immersion in the milieu of the work he has chosen for himself finds that after a period of time, he is able to gain the knowledge that informs with fact coupled with insights that light up pathways out the predicaments of people within his jurisdictional ken.

Gramsciā€™s coinage - organic intellectual - was one of the great contributions to social thought in the first half of the 20th century, a device that enabled people of intellect to plunge into the hurly-burly of a polity to motor the development of the proletariat.

Charlesā€™ experiences must have been the same as Surendranā€™s in his only term (2013-2018) as MP for Padang Serai and Sivarasaā€™s (2008-2018) as MP in Sungai Buloh.
