Sit down and think about the times during festive season. Think about Hari Raya, Chinese New Year, Deepavali and Christmas.
What are these festivals to you? What do they mean to you?
How many of you have actually lend a hand in doing preparations? Ever made ketupats before? Ever prepared fruits for prayers before? Ever visited the temple for prayers? Have you ever had the spirit of celebrating?
What are these festive season? It all seems to be just another public holiday for the youths.
Year after year, the spirit and mood have dimmed. Not much decorations are seen. People are least excited. Should we blame the economy for this? Who should we blame?
What will happen in a few generations to come? For the Chinese people, who will set up the prayers table and on which day? Do you know?
