| SPEECH BY: DATO' SERI DR. MAHATHIR BIN MOHAMAD ( PRIME MINISTER ) EVENT: THE "A UNITED MALAYSIAN NATION BY THE YEAR 2020" DINNER VENUE: SHANGRI-LA HOTEL, KUALA LUMPUR DATE: 31 JAN 1992 TIME: Tan Sri Ahmad Sarji President Harvard Club; Distinguished Guests; Ladies and Gentlemen, After-dinner speeches are supposed to be light and not too taxing on the mind. Perhaps this is because after a heavy dinner and posible indigestion we should be spared of mental indigestion as well. 2. National unity is not a suitable post-prandial subject. But then it is your President who chose this subject. I have no say in the matter. If you get indigestion both gastronomically and cerebrally, you should know whom to blame. Ladies and Gentlemen, 3. For the next three decades the nation's energies will be concentrated on trying to realise Vision 2020. That Vi- sion identifies nine central challenges that would have to be successfully addressed if we are to become a fully devel- oped nation by the year 2020. The one identified as likely to be "the most fundamental, the most basic" challenge, is the challenge of establishing a united Malaysian…...

...borderless world. As provided by Article 10 of Federal Constitution, Malaysian citizens do enjoy the right to freedom of speech. According to our Prime Minister YAB Dato’ Seri Mohd Najib bin Tun Abd Razak, freedom of speech must be suited and match Malaysian norms which are synonymous with good manners and noble values. Although it is clear and unambiguous called every citizen has the right to freedom of expression and speech, but all subject to the other clauses. For example, racist remarks and incitement that could interfere with national security are not allowed. In this issue, the right of expression come into conflict with the right to live in peace. Malaysia is not the only country set this rules as United Kingdom also impose limits more or less the same even freedom of speech and expression is the negative rights of the people under the "common law". Former Malaysian Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir is the most outspoken leaders defend free speech restrictions. According to him at the Culture Inaugural Lectures 2011, 10 November 2011, freedom of speech should be limited so that this right is not being used by some people to incite other people. Summary, in the other communities want to defend their right of speech, they should not interfere with the rights of peace and tranquillity which claimed the other. From our point of view, freedom of speech through social media in this country should be given attention and be heard especially in terms of improving......

Dr. Abdul Kalam Speech on India

...Dr. Abdul Kalam's #‎Letter to Every Indian - Dated - 12/03/2014 Why is the media here so negative? Why are we in India so embarrassed to recognize our own strengths, our achievements? We are such a Great NATION. We have so many amazing success stories but we refuse to acknowledge them. Why? We are the first in milk production. We are number one in Remote sensing satellites. We are the second largest producer of wheat. We are the second largest producer of rice. Look at Dr. Sudarshan , he has transferred the tribal village into a self-sustaining, self-driving unit.. There are millions of such achievements but our media is only obsessed in the bad news and failures and disasters. I was in Tel Aviv once and I was reading the Israeli newspaper. It was the day after a lot of attacks and bombardments and deaths had taken place. The Hamas had struck. But the front page of the newspaper had the picture of a Jewish gentleman who in five years had transformed his desert into an orchid and a granary. It was this inspiring picture that everyone woke up to. The gory details of killings, bombardments, deaths, were inside in the newspaper, buried among other news. In India we only read about death, sickness, terrorism, crime. Why are we so NEGATIVE? Another question: Why are we, as a nation so obsessed with foreign things? We want foreign T.Vs, We want foreign shirts. We want foreign technology. Why this obsession with everything......

Istana Seri Menanti & Kota Lukut

...INTRODUCTION Site A: Istana Lama Seri Menanti The Istana Seri Menanti also known as the Istana Lama Seri Menanti is one of the famous landmarks in Negeri Sembilan. It is situated in the Royal Town of Seri Menanti, about 50 km from the capital, Seremban. It is a timber palace constructed between 1902 to 1908. Yang Dipertuan Muhammad Ibni Almarhum Yamtuan Antah officially opened the palace. The palace was his royal residence until 1931 before moving into the new palace that was built not far from the old palace. Two local carpenters, Tukang Kahar and Tukang Taib designed the palace and Mr. M.Woodford who was the head draughtsman at the Public Works Department provided the detailed drawings. This four-storey building is special because it was built without using any nails or screws. They used wooden pegs called pasak to hold the structures together and to ensure that the palace would be able to withstand the times. It also uses 99 solid timber pillars to denote the 99 warriors of the various clans, soaring 2 meter above the ground.

Mohathir Mohamad

...perdagangan telah menyimpang daripada landasan utama kerana ianya lebih menekankan matlamat untuk menjadi kaya dengan apa jua cara, tanpa mementingkan nilai dan sikap usahawan Melayu tersebut, malah ia juga menggalakkan kerakusan dan sikap membolot kekayaan. Akhirnya, perjuangan untuk melahirkan golongan kapitalis Melayu sememangnya wujud tetapi ianya agak terbabas daripada matlamat dan niat yang utama disebabkan oleh semangat usahawan dan pengurusan orang Melayu tidak meningkat. Di samping itu, perkara yang berkaitan dengan bidang ekonomi Melayu, kini jelas benar-benar berlaku walaupun ada sebahagian besar daripada masyarakat Melayu tidak mengiyakan dan menyetujui pendapat-pendapat yang dikemukan oleh Senu Abdul Rahman dan Dr. Mahathir Mohammad dalam buku mereka iaitu Revolusi Mental (1973) dan Dilema Melayu (1982). Berdasarkan kedua-dua buku ini telah menyatakan bahawa matlamat utama masyarakat Melayu menceburi bidang perniagaan dan perdagangan adalah untuk mencari keuntungan dan membolot kekayaan semata-mata, malah ada juga yang mengatakan bahawa orang Melayu ini mempunyai masalah tabiat meniru. Masyarakat Melayu menghadapi masalah yang agak berat apabila wujud perasaan tabiat meniru dalam diri masyarakat Melayu. Contohnya, orang Melayu tidak boleh melihat orang Cina berniaga, maka mereka juga akan terlibat dalam dunia perniagaan seperti mana perniagaan yang dijalankan oleh orang Cina. Namun, masih terdapat segelitir daripada masyarakat Melayu kini tidak...

Dr Kings Speech

...Five score years ago, a great American, in whose symbolic shadow we stand today, signed the Emancipation Proclamation. This momentous decree came as a great beacon light of hope to millions of Negro slaves who had been seared in the flames of withering injustice. It came as a joyous daybreak to end the long night of their captivity. But one hundred years later, the Negro still is not free. One hundred years later, the life of the Negro is still sadly crippled by the manacles of segregation and the chains of discrimination. One hundred years later, the Negro lives on a lonely island of poverty in the midst of a vast ocean of material prosperity. One hundred years later, the Negro is still languished in the corners of American society and finds himself an exile in his own land. And so we've come here today to dramatize a shameful condition. In a sense we've come to our nation's capital to cash a check. When the architects of our republic wrote the magnificent words of the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence, they were signing a promissory note to which every American was to fall heir. This note was a promise that all men, yes, black men as well as white men, would be guaranteed the "unalienable Rights" of "Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness." It is obvious today that America has defaulted on this promissory note, insofar as her citizens of color are concerned. Instead of honoring this sacred obligation, America has given the Negro people a bad check, a......
