    Ambiga : “Marina! jangan pandang belakang..!”

    Some ngos were formed by a membership of less than 10 persons. Then they picked among themselves as president or whatever designation that could signify “elitist” and “oomp” connotations. Thus we have Executive-of-whatever.

    Still they’re no better than an ordinary JKKK. A JKKK looks after a few hundreds kampung folks. Humble as they are JKKK are really the all-year-round working committee.

    Ambiga and Marina are “there” just to show off. They’re the elites so their hands aren’t for the victims of floods. They don’t bother what happened to those rice planters who lost their rice fields in floods. They don’t care. Hippocricy.

      Jawatankuasa Kemajuan dan Keselamatan Kampung (JKKK) do not have a media platform like some of these NGOs do.

      There is also the factor of language. Irene Fernandez, Cynthia Gabriel, Ivy Josiah, Gerald Joseph, K J John, Sonia Randhawa, et al are English speakers. This helps them to get airtime in international media even though their NGOs may comprise less members than a typical JKKK.

    All should stay home and jaga cucu.

      Cynthia and Gerald are not grandpa grandma age.

    ….and yet Indians still lack behind and blame the government of the day.

      See lah their names — Irene Fernandez, Cynthia Gabriel, Ivy Josiah, Gerald Joseph, K J John …

      They’re not Arumugam or Letchumi. I thought readers of my blog are already agreed that the Christians are super duper aggressive.

        errr.. they look like Indians not Mat Saleh..

        They are what you would call the Catholic Church in drag.

    “They’re not Arumugam or Letchumi..”

    Such a shallow comment. So “Helen Ang”.. what are you? An American/British (Insert Western country here) Chinese?

    And you just took KJ Johns statement so literally, skipping the sentences after on how he defined “an Indian”.

    You’re no different than a religious extremist trying to garner hits on your blog with cheap shots like this.

      re: “So “Helen Ang”.. what are you? An American/British (Insert Western country here) Chinese?”

      So Shasha Chacko, have you ever worn blue jeans or are you in sari all the time?

      Why don’t you leave your comment here in some Indian script rather than in English?

      • 13. Shasha Chacko  |  March 7, 2014 at 10:01 am

        I don’t understand your logic. I’m Malaysian Indian. Indian being an ethnicity not a nationality. Yes I wear blue jeans and no I don’t wear a saree ALL the time. Whats your point?
        P/S : Google the difference between ethnicity & nationality before replying please.

      • 14. grkumar  |  March 7, 2014 at 10:12 am

        Well said. And if I may add If HA is like some religious extremist trying to garner hits on her blog, she may have scored well with the likes of Sasha Chacko (or Alexndra Jacob) taking a “Cheap shot” at it.

      • 15. Shasha Chacko  |  March 7, 2014 at 2:12 pm

        Oh dear. I did a quick Google search on “Helen Ang”. I honestly thought this was a blog belonging to a random frustrated Malaysian. My bad! Now it makes a whole lot of sense. Have a good day!

        • 16. Gopal Raj Kumar  |  March 7, 2014 at 3:01 pm

          Indian is about being a national of the sub continent of India. Unless you hold dual citizenship and have dual loyalties your response is incorrect. Your race or ethnicity is either that of a Dravidian or more specifically Malayalee which is diametrically opposed and different to the ethnicity of someone from Assam, Tripura, Manipur, A Jhat or Punjabi which are again all significantly or manifestly different to each others. A bit of confusion there Alexandra Jacob (or Sasha Chacko if you must)
