When I wrote about Estate Life in my blog, it’s because I feel that I understand the issue and I feel strongly about it. In one of the Cabinet’s meeting, I said most of the things that were contained in the blog. To say that I only talk about it when I am no more in power is not true. I brought up the estate issue when Hindraf appeared on the political scene. By then, emotion was running high among the Indian community.
One must not think that if you’re not in power, you cannot say anything that is constructive or champion any cause. This seems to be a disease afflicting some people. They are not receptive to any views that are not in convergence with their views.
One wise man once said that ‘the problem with the world is that only fools and fanatics are always sure of themselves but wise people are so full of doubts’.
