Ladies and Gentlemen,
With my last post "The Singapore we knew is dead" of March 18, 2010, this blog will not be posting anymore blog posts for the foreseeable future.
My purpose has been served. I had wanted to highlight the lack of human rights and fundamental freedoms in Singapore and the need for change for betterment of the island.
Being personally aware of the injustices there, and having suffered at the hands of the regime myself; coupled with my present safety from the long arm of the Singapore dictator, being in California; it would have been unforgivable had I remained silent.
With my numerous blog posts commencing December 2006, I think I have said what I have to say. My message should be clear by now. My story had to be told, and I told it.
And by my recent false claim about Lee Kuan Yew's health, which was deliberately done to test the consequences of the fall of the dictator, my prognosis of the dire consequences of his impending death has been roundly proven.
I have said my part. It is the Singapore opposition politicians such as Dr. Chee Soon Juan on whose shoulders the future of Singapore has always lied, not mine. At best I can only provide a minor supportive role at best.
I have no doubt in my mind that the future of Singapore lies in men such as Dr. Chee Soon Juan. I am sure of a new dawn in Singapore very soon.
I want to tell you an anecdote. Being of traditional Indian upbringing, fortune tellers being a part of our society, as a young boy walking along in Serangoon Road Singapore, an old wizardly looking Pakistani man had read my palm and correctly predicted that I will travel over a fair part of the world and be away from Singapore for many long years. But when asked where will I die, he said without hesitation Singapore.
So to Lee Kuan Yew's Singapore Immigration Department that refuses my entry to Singapore, let me use the words of General Douglas MacArthur when he evacuated the Philippines, "I shall return".
Yes, my friends I have no doubt about it, I shall return, simply because Lee Kuan Yew will be dead.
I will also not be posting anymore comments, as this would oftentimes require my response. As I do not intend to be blogging until further notice, this would become inconvenient.
And to those who are pondering over it, let me tell you this, political activism, as well as being an honorable act, both gratifying and rewarding; it can also be fun. I enjoyed every minute of it.
And with that, calling from California, which was captured from Mexico, I would end by saying
Hayward Tower: Cessna 767 Victor XRay, you are cleared for take off Runway 28 Left, right cross wind departure, maintain below 1000 over field, Wind 270 at 8 and gusts 15, Have a nice day.
