Ke Mana Malaysia Kita? 19

Just as Rajinikanth is set to re-release Baba, the new Malaysian Cabinet has been announced with a sole Malaysian Indian Minister. Sivakumar Varatharaju Naidu is the Minister of Human Resources in Anwar Ibrahim’s cabinet. It is interesting that Sivakumar was the Speaker of the House who, on March 3rd, 2009, convened the Perak State Assembly, the shade of a rain tree. While this controversial move was seen both as democracy in action and rabble-rousing theatrics, what is undeniable is that the culture of momentous realization and action arising within arboreal settings is deeply Indian.
