The death of Karpal Singh is a sad, sad thing. But what’s sadder is the dearth of humanity – that there are those who can celebrate the death of a fine man, or that they can incite others to hate just because they share the same views.
IT’S mid-April, the time of the year when many in the world celebrate the new year.
It was Ugadhi for the Telegus, it was the Tamil Chithirai Puthandu, the Sikh Vaisakhi, the Thai Songkran, the Myanmar Thingyin and it was the Malayalee Vishu.
Laos, Cambodia and much of Indochina celebrated the new year, too.
Happy New Year…
