To Ramu, Jayan, Sekhar, Guna, Loga, Ramesh and families in Kuala Sungai Baru Estate, my heart goes out to you.
I still treasure our childhood memories - we were together most of the time at the school, in the bushes, the river, the padi field and up the trees. It was from you that I knew MGR and Ramesh, Hema Malini and Lata Mageshkar.
We were really one, as Malaysians then. We 'owned' each other.
To all of you and to all Hindus, Happy Deepavali.
May the light shine on you endlessly.
