Women & Nostalgic Friday - 7

In Malaysia:
Scenario: The Parliment

Bung Mokhtar (Kinabatangan MP) reportedly said: “Mana ada bocor, Batu Gajah pun tiap-tiap bulan bocor juga (Where is the leak? Batu Gajah leaks every month too) against Batu Gajah MP Fong Poh Kuan who had complained about the leaks in the Parliament lobby.




I don't understand if this is the 'usual' kinda language he uses at home. Kudos to the women who are speaking against pathetic souls like him.


More news:
There they go again

Said refuses to apologize

MPs say sorry but retracts it later

Shahrizat to meet MPs



In Iraq:
Scenario: On the street


A teenage girl lies dead on the ground in a pool of her own blood.Her once groomed hair is cast across her face like a rag doll's, her skirt pulled up to complete her humiliation. In another image, she is seen lying on her side, her face battered and bloodied, barely recognisable. The concrete block used to smash in her face lies next to her.Du'a Khalil Aswad was beaten, kicked and stoned for 30 minutes at the hands of a lynch mob before one of her attackers launched a carefully aimed fatal blow.


Are we moving towards a civilized world or what? :S

This is actually a song sung by Jesse, a Malaysian artiste remixed with scenes of a 80s movie. Dedicated to all women.

I could not bring myself to read the story of the girl to the end. My stomach churns just imagining the pain and horror she went through.

Such cannibalism we have on earth...

Im disgusted to hear abt wut happened to that teenage girl! The bastards should pay for it.

When there itself a terror residing between them, then how could they fight against terrorist. It’s a very cruel attack on the small girl:(

shammu said...

do we have hope for a better world? :(

Thanks for the visit today!

Abru said...

I can't believe that these type of things do happen in this century...

It's a disgrace to humanity..
Those bastards must be burned alive..
When I read such incidents and news about Moral policing etc, I wonder whether we are going backwards!!!

vishesh said...

civilasition ...true...in what way are me moving forward??

everyone is equal,people need to drive it into those who can't understand....

chaitanya said...

Ammu,

I couldn't continue reading, real scary to think about it.
The song that you post it written by famous writer in India Sivashankari ( Puratchi Penn). If im not mistaken the movie title is Antha 47 Naatkal, there is a book published by her too.

@ cindy

@ keshi

hugssss!

thank you dear. i am sure many including u share the same sentiments about women, just like i do. i'm glad we all staying together fighting injustice against women in one way or another.

beeing stoned or being stripped and stoned doesn't reflect a civilazation community, not even an humane act. yes, they shld pay for it but did you read the sentence in the article saying that such killer may only get 6mths in jail? :| what justice are we talking about here dear?

tulipspeaks said...

@ jeevan

you have a good point there jeevan! kudos!




@ shammu

many of us couldn't read the article fully. i can understand why. can u imagine the on-lookers? how did they manage to watch a girl tortured and killed like that?



ammu.

tulipspeaks said...

@ abru

sigh..i have lost hope on our elected representatives edi..A bunch of uncivilised animals in human skin!
Sometime it makes me wonder, dont they have moms and sisters?? "YB"(anyway i dun think they deserves it) BUNG's face was really filthy with his excitement over his remarks. Although they had apologized, they are no guarantee they wont repeat it. These people are simple seeking cheap publicity. What is the differences between them and the Taiwan legislators who fights with fist??

Chaitanya,

It's 47 Natkal , by K.B

I think you mistook it for ANTHA 7 Natkal by Bhagjaraj.

47 Natkal was shot in france if im not mistaken. beautiful story of a village gal trapped in an unknown world with a sadist husband ( like me )

chaitanya said...

Ammu, Oh I didn't listen to the song :), the clip reveals the movie 47 Naatkal (thanks to Pucka Indian, I have mistakenly added Antha ) !!
Basically I was commenting on the movie, very nice and yes you should watch the climax. Yes by KB based on Sivasankari's Novel.

tulipspeaks said...

Dear Chaitanya,

Sivasankari's novels eternal treasure for Tamilian and particulary tamil women. Are you from India or Malaysia? I had tough time finding Sivasankaris novel over here in Malaysia. thanks to my godbrother from Madurai ,he sent me couple of her books. I must say Sivasankari's ORU MANITHANIN KATHAI is my favourite :)

PS . Nalla name , Chaitanya :) Thanks to u now n then i have a chance to word out lord chaitanya's name !
