It is often said better the Devil you know than the angel you do not know.  Since this is the season of light, let's have a look at what the "devil" and "angel" has been up to with regards to the Indian community.

I was surprised that despite election fever in Melaka,  the MP for Putrajaya,  Tengku Adnan who declared an asset of RM980 million before joining active politics in the early 1990's  when he was appointed as a Deputy Minister by Tun Dr Mahathir was busy making sure that the poorest Indians in his consistency had enough on the table without any publicity.

With not enough to eat
Who am I to be blind?
Pretending not to see their needs
A summer disregard, a broken bottle top
And a one man soul

'Cause they got nowhere to go
That's why I want you to know
I'm starting with the man in the mirror
