In the ultimate display of national unity, some Indian, Chinese and Malay bystanders came together with the mission of helping a damsel in distress with her car and engine woes this bright morning.
Amidst the heat and disruption to an already busy day full of disruptions, I basked in the presence of something real. Skip the rhetoric. Get to the core. What is the heartbeat of every Malaysian? What is conceivable? What is the public space that we are all comfortable with?
No definite answers, but there is a true sense of solidarity and I wish more Malaysians would feel it. Forget about the high-levels who want to politicise every issue, and I mean every issue. What is national unity really?
