Crying out for a changemaker

THERE I was, fresh from an eye surgery, a patch over one eye, and reading the newspaper again after a break of a couple of days.

Why Not?

The good, the bad and the corny

As an eventful year comes to an end, it’s time to look back at the year that was and re-live the agony, the joy and the suspense. We can also look at the lessons we have learnt – if any.

Why Not?

Don't forget our history

The destruction of a candi in Kedah showed how little we care for the nation’s history. And the wanton sale of artefacts from other local ancient kingdoms only adds to the growing problem.

Why Not?

Let the children learn

The NRD has every right to ensure only the deserving get their documents. But is that reason enough to deny an innocent child the right to education.

Is it so 'art' to love murals?

What do Justin Bieber, the Middle East and Malaysia have in common? Well, they have all been caught in street art controversies, for one thing.

A time to celebrate, a time to ponder

Deepavali is held to celebrate the death of evil at the hands of good, of darkness being vanquished by light. But every so often, death is cruel and there is little to celebrate.

Why Not?

No man, no cry!

IT’S been a miserable week. There has been rain, floods, a couple of days without proper water supply after diesel was poured into a river.

Why Not?

No place for collateral damage

The crackdown on violent crime is long overdue and, thankfully, the cops have finally decided to play hardball – but there must not be an overreaction that could lead to innocent victims.

Why Not?

Answer lies in the cop of small things

Violent crime is on the rise and even bigwigs are now admitting it. However, there could be hope – and it’s not so much from police patrols. The answer may just lie in unleaded petrol.
