Warm greetings to each one of you who is reading this blog!

My absence in the blogging arena for about a year is something I did not anticipate. I've been blogging for about 10 years now and have always enjoyed sharing my experiences and opinions and not doing it for a year has redoubled my desire to put pen to paper or rather finger to keyboard as the case maybe.

It's been exactly 7 years to the date I was first elected as an MP for Hulu Selangor. It has been a very adventures and enlightening journey so far. I've learnt so much through a myriad of experiences and indeed I'm blessed to have this opportunity to serve. 

My elevation to the Deputy Minister of Education post is equally humbling and a worthwhile opportunity which I'm continuing to seize and make the best of on a daily basis. The responsibility of handling the single most important resource of a nation weighs heavily but rewards amply when policy and implementation work in coherent efficiency.
I missed my engagement with you in sharing views and obtaining valuable and constructive feedback from my dear readers.
My responsibilities at the Ministry of Education (MOE) had kept me on my toes as there are various challenges to be faced and time is of the essence in ensuring success. I am happy with what I have been able to contribute and achieve at MOE, the schools, teachers and students.  It has been a challenging and most satisfying journey that I will continue to work with commitment and passion.
Today, I wish to announce my return to the blogging world!
I will be sharing my views on education in general, Tamil schools, the challenges and opportunities in education for the Indian community in Malaysia, the political transformation that is taking place in Malaysia, critical announcements from MOE and MIC, activities and programs in my parliament constituency in Hulu Selangor as well any other public interest matters that I am privy to.

I look forward to your continued support of this blog.
Thank you !

SJKT Nigel Gardner Food Poisoning : NEVER AGAIN

2 March 2016 : The food program for students who are under privileged is a noble endeavor by the government to make sure that the students who need it get the necessary nutrition so that their body and mind are in a healthy state to ensure optimum attention on their studies. When I heard of the food poisoning case of the students in Nigel Gardner School I was immensely angry and disappointed that such a careless situation could even take place.

Surely, not a difficult question to answer.

I am convinced that based on Article 91 of the MIC constitution, Dato' Seri G.Palanivel and four others who instituted a judicial review application against the Registrar of Societies (ROS) have ceased to be members of the party.

Article 91 of MIC’s constitution reads: "Every member shall be bound by the decision of the Central Working Committee in matters relating to his rights, obligations, duties and privileges as a member of the Congress.
