Sad day for Malaysian Indians

I read news about the massive protest by Malaysian Indians (Pix source: The Straits Times. You can see more pix at Screenshots) in Kuala Lumpur with a tinge of sadness.

I feel sad that many Indians feel marginalised over the years in their country of birth due to socio-political reasons, one of which is the Bumiputra policy that has been favouring the Malays since the 1970s.

Their unhappiness over a litany of issues, including the recent demolition of a temple in the state of Selangor, erupted over the weekend.

Reports said Malaysian riot police fought running battles with more than 5,000 Hindu protesters gathered at various places for the banned rally in the Malaysian capital yesterday.

ST reported that many held posters of Indian independence leader Mahatma Gandhi and waved identity cards and Malaysian flags to show they were also Malaysians, as they demanded equal rights.

The report said the gathering was organised by the Hindu Rights Action Force, ostensibly in support of a suit it filed against Britain in August claiming US$4 trillion for the suffering of Indians, whose ancestors were taken to Malaysia by the British as indentured labourers 150 years ago.

Another report cited the organisers as claiming that more than 100,000 members of the ethnic Indian community had signed a petition, addressed to the Queen, asking for help to end racial discrimination under Malaysian law.

Apart from feeling sorry for their plight, I feel sad that some Malaysian Indians made such a ridiculous appeal and claim against the former colonial master.

Yes, the British brought Indians and Chinese to Malaya then. But Malaya, like many other former colonies, has since gained independence. The country has had 50 years -- read half a century -- of rapid economic development, albeit several dark chapters of its history.

The answer is not to make the ridiculous appeal to the Queen or the huge monetary claim, which is equivalent to nearly one-third the value of the US economy today!

Instead, the Indian community should work within the system to improve it instead of blaming the former colonial master. At the same time, the Malaysian government, which is led by Umno and other members of the National Front coalition, must not ignore the grievances of the Indian community or any other marginalised communities anymore.

All parties must work together to help improve the system, and show that Malaysians can run the country well, long after the departure of the British.

Postscript: I have just read the petition by the Hindu Rights Action Force and am totally disgusted with the complete misrepresentation of the situation in Malaysia. The petition even resorted to describing Indians as being "persecuted by government backed Islamic extremist violent armed terrorist" and even suggested "ethnic cleansing" in Malaysia. The petition is even more ridiculous than what I have imagined earlier! Gandhi would not have condoned such an act!!!

Sophie,, you might be disgusted of the Indian's act but there is more things to be disgusted than the petition. The indian community believe that British has made a huge mistake by exporting them to Malaya, as till now, Indian majority are always has discriminate in the multi culture country. Here, in malaysia claimed to be democratic country, the quota system for an Indian student who did well in exam are not given the appreciation and appraisal that they suppose to get. Moreover, their application are rejected cause only 3% Indian quota in University! Dont you feel more disgusted and terrified when your race become the victim of suspiscion of crime most of the time! And the funny thing, they are disgusted when most privilige are given to other race in supermarket or shopping complex. I remembered once when one of my friend who is Indian can't help her seeing a salesman approach people to buy perfume in KLCC. She couldnt help watching the man approaching other races to buy his product but when an Indian girl approach him to know more about the perfume, he turn away. In frust, the girl left the place. My friend approached him and ask him why he do so and he answer, Indians couldnt effort to buy the perfume!!! Are the Indian really merempit till can't buy a perfume. Disgusted, my friend told him , he is standing and promoting at a place where an Indian build the place. Sophie, you must understand, they are doing this cause of frustration. You can YOUTUBE a video clip about comment from a respective person in Malaysia about Indians. And you will be more disgusted.... as how they felt.

Sophie...u before feeling disgusted over anything...u shud 1st come to an understanding of WHY the petition was made in the 1st place...

it's so obvious that malaysian gov is controlled by UMNO and not as so called BN...and it's a fact that u have to accept...cuz all major political decisions are made by UMNO...NOT BN~!

2nd..u've gotta understand that...we Malaysian Indians aren't stupid to join such assembly if it was really meant to be legal...let the petition speak...regardless of the content of the petition...it actually opened lotsa 'eyes' in Malaysia...goes to the normal people like us...political 'eyes' and up to the world's 'eyes'~!

to tell u the truth...i joined in the peaceful assembly even by NOT knowing what's the content of the petition...all that mattered to me...and all the indians who joined the assembly was to get our voices heard by the deaf gov and also the world...and u CANT deny the fact that everyone 'LISTENED' eventually to our voices~!

talking about malaysia again...this is NOT an islamic country...i repeat it's NOT an islamic country...only the official religion is islam...i wonder why there are so many illiterate politicians who always assume and address the nation and the world - 'Malaysia is an Islamic country'...that's a pure nonsense...and that's DISGUSTING~!..it's stated clearly in the constitution and perhaps our politicians should start going thru the constitution in the 1st place...

also understand that...if u believe that the petition is just a piece of disgusting crap...tell me why in the 1st place the gov is afraid of the petition submission to the british embassy? If malaysian gov is being fair to everyone...there's no point of being afraid and there's no point for HINDRAF to submit the petition as well~!

if malaysian gov is being fair..there's no need for ISA as well...why aren't there freedom of speech in malaysia?why is the media controlled? clearly cuz malaysia is just a country...hiding n saving it's butt from the world in the name of DEMOCRATIC COUNTRY.

always remember...even if indians are considered a small minority group in malaysia...together we are inexorable...
from the petrol(petronas)..communications n entertainment base (maxis,astro and etc..malaysia's proud building the twin tower and the list goes on...everything belongs to an indian~! and u shud know his name by right~

so without indians...malaysia would just a piece of crap...n wil never succeed~!

last but not least...im not racist or whatsoever...i have wonderful malay frens whom i know for 15years...n we are still very close..and he's working in STAR LRT...i've got a best fren and he's a chinese...n without him i doubt that i would have close to where i am now...

malaysia can still uphold it's unity among all the religions IF THE GOVERNMENT acts fairly to everyone...NOT by changing n altering the constitution as how they want to support bumiputeras...

and to argue about the petition and also the gov...the list goes on to a never ending story~

bottomline...let HINDRAF claim what they want...cuz their sole purpose is to wake everyone up from their deep sleep...i can see the people have awakened...turn goes to the gov...n that's what the petition and the assembly did~!

so...decide...to be disgusted with the petition?hindraf's act?or the gov?

Damien said...

erm...some typos...sorry~

3rd paragraph..it's ILLEGAL..not legal :)

10th paragraph..it's A WONDERFUL MALAY FREN..not wonderful malay frens :p

10th paragraph...it's I WOULD HAVE CAME CLOSE...

you are disgusted by this?

"persecuted by government backed Islamic extremist violent armed terrorist"

why does this disgust you? Here is the definition of a terrorism according to the many different dictionaries.

1. the use of violence and threats to intimidate or coerce, esp. for political purposes.
2. the state of fear and submission produced by terrorism or terrorization.
3. a terroristic method of governing or of resisting a government.

now correct me if im wrong, but i think indians have been threatened ever since they started asking for their rights. When are we threatened? I'll tell you, why the need to dig histroy, just recently we were threatened on the streets to disperse or be arrested. Our choice to assemble peacefully is lawful under the constitution, so yes, we were faced by threats of arrest from all parties.

We live in fear, yes fear of the next indian they will arrest when we protest the breaking of our temples.

And of violence used in terrorising us? well here's a clip to show you how they terrorise us with violence. enjoy

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G0QgLccqdjk

God only knows what they do to us behind the cameras, and when indians are in their custody in jail.

2. Secondly, those indians didnt come there for money. We dont even care if that law suit was filed in London. We needed a reason to show our disatissfaction that is all. The excuse was filing a lawsuit to Britain. You think the indians think they will win this case? We all know Britain owes money to the World bank and the united nations. They dont even have money for their own UK citizens, let alone pay indians in malasyia, who they probably dont care about anyway. So why did we come to K.L then? Why on the streets? because this was our excuse. it was also a way of dragging the international media to listen to us. because our papers and T.V would not have given a clear picture. why not voice our concerns through MIC? because we have been trying to do this through our puppet 'samy vellu',for 27 years, and after that time we have concluded he has really no say in BN. So this was our way. How else could we have done it? No one chooses to listen to us anywhere. they break our temples as and when they please. What else are we to do?

3. Ethnic cleansing

Indians are an ethnic group. Ethnic cleansing, the systematic removal of ethnics in a country. Now, Kampung medan was an example. The police took their time in cracking down the riots there. It took them 5 days to restore peace. They said there were 5 deaths. Eye witness said there were 200 indian deaths. Does it take 5 days to stop 200 indian deaths? Or were they complacent because they knew it was the indians that were being slaughtered and decided to let it be because it would appease the malays in the area. whatever their reasons this in any other country is called ethnic cleansing. And who do I believe the UMNO controlled media or and freinds eye witneses who are my family and friends? well my family and not the malaysian media. Why? here's an example of how bias our media is

The star paper reported this: -

"Inspector General of Police Tan Sri Musa Hassan said that no tear gas or water cannons were used at the demonstrators during the incident."

This is the link to that article

http://www.thestar.com.my/news/story.asp?file=/2007/11/26/nation/19576008&sec=nation


Now the complete opposite is true. Here is proof. The 2 links below are a picture and video of them shooting gas canisters into the compound of batu caves. The picture clearly shows an FRU truck using water cannons, and the top right hand side of the same picture has the trails of smoke from tear gas canisters used.

http://www.bmahendran.com/?p=243

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2j2VUYGtwMM


4. Please do not assume what Gandhi would have said. None of us will ever be capable of the restraint that Gandhi had on his emotions. If all proof to him was available about how indians are treated in Malaysia, one can only imagine what he would have had to say about the authorities.


Thank you for having the courage to post this on your website.

God Bless,
Sathya.

sophie,i have quite noticed your bog for the past few months and compared to other malaysian blogs well i guess your blog seems quite rationale as some malaysian blogs i noticed have lots of anger and grievances...and so bout this said topic...to begin with a very complex issue actually after been observing for quite some time now....i have lots of malysian indian frens that used to be my colleagues working here,singapore...so many grievances and most of them has been keeping to themselves lately for the past i do not know years maybe...so the Hindraff rally well i do not know a kinda outburst but is there any kinda positive results after rally???and as far as i can see well m'sia govt seems a bit hesitant and taken aback by the rally...and in the first time in my life i visited KL on the day that Bersih had the rally...quite an experience cos there are so many road blocks till reaching to the nearest bank take hours...instead of just hitting out the Bumiputera policy that has been around for almost 50 years it should be an encouragement for them to be meritocratic one at a time...it's not easy for them to just being snatched away priviliged that they had for so long...all these takes time and globalisation will play a part...anonymous-i did read out the Hindraff petition on rocky bru website....but ethic cleansing???ru sure??am not siding with any parties here but just giving my rationale views

You're hilarious.

You should focus your energy into understanding the situation. Do your research before blogging about something like this, and with so much fire, too.

Maybe you haven't seen, or maybe you're turning a blind eye. Or maybe you know, but you just don't care. But it's definitely there.

I'm not a Malaysian Indian, nor am I on the side of the government. But I'm still going to fight for what's right; and if you open your eyes wide enough, you should see why.

my answer:focusing my energy typing in anger about situation that i can say not a situation but a poltical situation that have become a personal anger...and with so much fire??on sophie's blog..??

Maybe you haven't seen, or maybe you're turning a blind eye. Or maybe you know, but you just don't care. But it's definitely there.

my answer: am not a frog under a skull and i don't wish to add insult into an injury and the word maybe meaning u are not really sure of it...in the first place if i don't know or don't bother why shld i in the first place commented

I'm not a Malaysian Indian, nor am I on the side of the government. But I'm still going to fight for what's right; and if you open your eyes wide enough, you should see why.

my answer: why should be writing in such lenght or detail in anger and emotions??.....am not frog under a skull and i do not wish to pursue further if u think that iam not under the qualified category of the said topic...just apologise if what i commented is not too much of fire as u suggest but as i say am just trying to be rationale..writing in anger emotionally does not lead to nowhere...

Sophie, u said ""Instead, the Indian community should work within the system to improve it instead of blaming the former colonial master."'

yes, that is what they were doing till know until BN (especially UMNO) entered in demilition of temple.Tell me, will malays keep quiet when their masjid is touch by other races as what hv done by UMNO. And u telling bumiputra still get their privillage while indians and chinese work on their own. It seems bumiputra are eating on other others hard work compare others cause all this privillage goes only for them..while other races hv worked hard for this country as well. PM himself told that indians and chinese hv worked to develope this country to, then why are they not getting equalities in everything while only malays go for it....isnt that wrong of what PM is doing. Even the world would laugh to him...if he claimed there is no discrimination against indians and chinese, and other races as well..

why dont everyone get bumiputra status here while all of our ancestors hv been here hundreds of years...

Hi Sophie,

My 2 sen take ..

Oh MalaysiaKu .. Inikah NegaraKu

It saddens me and sordidly pains to see this had to eventually happen.

That said, we'd it coming actually and yet we'll witness a deja vu where there'll be denials, and more denials and subsequently the usual illogical blame the world parody for our self-inflicted woes and failings.

Current PM is a nice guy. But not too sure if he would have political will, guts, humility and maturity to call spade a spade and admit that affirmative policies have gone awry.

We tell proudly the world over that we are a melting pot of multi-cultural ethnic diversity, respectfully co-exist and have exceedingly pliant tolerance of other race, religion and creed in beautiful M'sia. Which is true ... well, true until till the ugly truth had frothed out now.

When one witnesses one race dictates themselves as the de facto cooks and the rest of races are in the pot, the simmering and boiling becomes a perfect recipe for spicy and feisty spillover.

Where does one draw a line of intent between being told to go ahead enjoy the simmering tepid water in the pot that we are preparing you other races, to soothe your anxieties while we figure something out, and left the other races in the pot in eternity to boil because protracted in-fighting amongst the "righteous" cooks themselves to claim credits for the recipe.

Affirmative policies is the recipe, perhaps a recipe for social disaster. It was a "constituted" policy, formulated perhaps naively for a perceived "beleaguered" race to march 1 step forward and others "mandated" to accede and retreat 2 steps back. Essentially, it was sold hook, line and sinker to bring up an indigenous race (by definition, actually they are ones who are still in the jungle) to be more equal than others, and yet with equal opportunities for all. How does that work out is anyone guess. Other races' representatives then must have been charmed or had derelict and lapsed in their responsibilities.

How these social injustices were tolerated for such long time was because essentially the country was blessed with natural abundance of agriculture, oil and gas. It had a diverse economy which was fortuitously doing rather well. And having other races chosen leaders as muppets and mouth pieces in government folds also help to smoother the occasional ruffles along the way.

But more importantly or rather fortunately, the economy growth had made avail jobs aplenty all round albeit not so equal opportunities in higher tertiary learning, paid jobs and/or business. Other races had scraps and just had to make do. That has made other races just got more resoundingly creative and hard-working to send their next generation for further education either overseas and/or local private universities. It would allow the next generation a glimmer of hope to eke out a better living in M'sia or elsewhere. It had forestalled the crisis.

And as previous venerable PM had observed a notable affirmative failings, cooks became very arrogant yet soft and complacent. His own admission had not augured well amongst his fellow cooks, which led him to his political demise. The irony was he’d championed the affirmative policy too strongly which led him to be a pariah within the party in his early days. It was meant for his fellow cooks to stand tall, only to find them in his latter days too laid back and yet crave for ostentatious living and spending, to the irks of other races. Because the policies was too "successful", he became a victim of his own success and again a political pariah today.

All told, protracted affirmative actions have lost untold billions of ringgits in monetary terms of wealth and talents because:
a. other races had just to emigrate to become a better 2nd class citizen elsewhere
b. continued satirical infighting amongst the cooks to claim rightful “righteous” leadership
c. expended wealth in tertiary education because of sub-standard local universities and/or unequal entry opportunities (former leads to point out incidentally, why some of the brightest cooks are schooled instead in the best renown overseas tertiary , courtesy of the local taxpayers)
d. expended wealth in business opportunities overseas because local affirmative practices curtail equal opportunities

And now, more valuable and intangible to be lost – trust of the people.

50 years of independence from the British colonial ruling and the masters taught us to right way to drive is on the left-side, letter of civil law, communicate in English language.

For all the Empire misgivings, many wouldn't have remembered them today. But if the present government does not become wiser and heed these warnings and take bold correctives action to nip the affirmative problems now and hold out an olive branch before the racial schism becomes too wide to bridge .. other races may just get so frustrated and not be forgiving. And M'sia may not be a beautiful country anymore.

Tanah tumpahnya darahku

Let us all pray it meant blood shed for loyalty to our country and not a blood bath because of race divide like what's happening in Sri Lanka or Iraq today.

Americans fought a civil war to unite a divided country because the color of a race. Must we needlessly go down the same path?

I want to come home to a paradise in beautiful M'sia, marveled and wept as he acclaimed by late Pavarotti .. but this had been said of Sri Lanka .. praying hard it would not be another deja vu come true.

If it sadly comes to that, no tears will be shed for Malaysia, a paradise lost.

jonathan K,
such an emotional and well i can say a frank comment...do not despair no country is perfect...sometimes it takes time for ppl to face the truth...what i can see is that they have been twisting and turning...things...and misinterpret things...but i must admit...no other country in the world...practised a kinda racial based policy....and this reminds me of so call moses and ramses....

Jonathan K said...

Hi,

Thanks for the comments. Actually, I'd not intended to sound emotional. Facts are, as you've rightly pointed out, that there's no such thing as perfect country. Every country has its own baggage and skeletons in their own closets.

What makes one call a place a home, well, it could be your loved ones waiting ..or warm and wonderful friends .. or familiar smells and surroundings .. or home cooked food or some road sides makan stalls.

For me, I find all the above in M'sia.

What pains me to see is the results of this protracted affirmative policies. We see wider polarization of races.

English is the only universal language, which is non race biased (in M'sia context) that could possibly have united the races in M'sia and of great commercial value outside the country but yet not taught properly in schools today.

And as the usual government stories in M'sia, the execution efforts are half baked and very short sighted; to unite people, government has been coercing and/or chiding people to learn Bahasa.

Latter incident was, where you may have recalled an opposition minister who spoke in Mandarin, chided his audience, if i'd bothered to learn and write in your tongue, why don't you take pains to master Bahasa.

Or another incident where UMNO member told MCA member, Chinese to retreat "gracefully" in Mandarin, for Malays to advance.

Well, the reason why other races never took pains to master - even after 30 years of indoctrination, is the fact people are resentful of being subjugated to another race.

So, what has all this made of 80% M'sians today.
a. Amongst the Malays they converse in Bahasa and their own state loghats
b. Chinese speaks Mandarin, dialects and Bahasa pasar
c. Indian speaks Tamil/Hindi/Urdu, smuttering of Bahasa and smidgen of Chinese dialects

And chances are we can't hold a decent conversation in fluent English or for the matter in Bahasa.

As a result, we have lost a generation of M'sians.

And I observed - do correct me, people tend to be in clans of same race because we are more comfortable in holding our own conversations in our language and less likely to be misunderstood. We co-mingle amongst races less freely now unless it is very necessary. Otherwise, we would disassociate ourselves by race.

Unlike our parents in the 40s,50s and 60s (a blip in 69), we can see the kampung spirit as depicted by Lat cantoons alive and well then.

And back then, the lingua franca was English.

Not that I'm nostalgic or sentimental about the good old days. But what I see and afraid is that this is a slippery slide to a very fragmented society, divided by the color of race. That is going to be very dangerous and can end up ugly.

Put yourself in the shoes of the Malaysian Indians and you will realise why these guys have resort to such an action.

I can tell you this with confidence: integrate them into Malaysian mainstream society (a fair one) and these Malaysian Indians will soon become Global Citizens!

Hi, i m sorry 2 say this but i would like 2 correct and add some fact regarding this blog.

First d hindraf does not really fight 4 d indian and hindus as prove a few days before the rallies they had first chase the temple person(monk) from the temple itself so it hav nothing 2 do with d hindu but only 4 d hindraf themselve.
Second the temple does not really being demolished but TRANSFERRED 2 a new place and they had being told to do so by years and not a sudden.
Third is the fact that theres no such things as 100 000 signed petition because the petition had only being published by the HINDRAF blog which i believe cannot b trusted at all.
Fourth is the rally does not really just attend by the indian but also the Parti Keadilan Rakyat de facto leader Dato seri anwar ibrahim which can b said as the game of the opposition 2 create chaos in this country to get sympathy votes 4 d elections.
Fifth its not just the indian who are not wealth bcos lots of others who work even in singapore or bunei n even in msia(excluding the poor in sabah n srwk) does not really wealth as they thought.Believe me when i say that a lots of wealthy people today hav undergone like what they are facing now.
Sixth UMNO cannot b blame 4 this situation.UMNO in my opinion had try vey hard 2 make sure that the country wealth were dilibrate fairly enough as a result 6 from the msian most wealthiest people are non malay or bumiputra which include an indian which is tan sri ananda krishnan.
Seventh the Hindraf shows clearly that they got problem with the muslims(nt lik d really indian)as a prove they had published a leter which accuse the govrnment workers as muslim extremist.

With this information i hope that the incidence is known clearly that it had not being done solely by d indian but actually had being poisoned by some party for political reason and those who does not love their country.

Naufas,
By your standard of English I do not quite understand what u are trying to state above.what I have listened and noticed and observed at the same time
Non-bumiputeras are malaysia citizens,when one tends to make oneself different from the rest claiming for special priviliged other parties tend to ask 'Are we citizens of this country or just for the sake of being a citizen with...??'
When one keep claiming they are still poor even though handouts keep distributing...but not at all push oneslf to do better...so where the rest of them stand?
So my question is the fate of the special one be poor or rich will always be blamed on the one that does not have the special priviliges...
Stated above i have politely rephrase for your understand basically came from your own citizens that came to wok here..
To make it simple,
Untuk menjadi seseorang yang berguna,berkhidmat dan berbakti untuk masyarakat harus mempunyai mentaliti agar berusaha untuk berdiri sendiri tanpa asyik meminta-minta.
Seseorang itu akan mempunyai mentali yang lemah kalau sengaja atau tidak mahu berusaha untuk nberdikari.
Manusia tidak diukur kekayaan/kemiskinan tetapi atas usaha sendiri.

NAUFAS said...

Well thanks..i do support and understand that statement eventhough u cannot really understand what i write..

Anonymous said...

naufas,
I am glad u are able to understand what i have stated.
You are the few that are able to understand the concept of being independant, stand on one's feet.
I hope more of u will be able to accept it cos frankly from blogs especially blogs from m'sia...bumiputeras especially seems or refused to accept the independant mentality fact.
Malaysia is a country that is of full natural resources.Whenever I visied your country, I admired your vast land.
But the population is very racially divisive.Sometimes i tend to ask myself is it a malay/Chinese/Indian country?Or is it Malaysia?Where am I standing?
In other words,
Siapa yang tidak mahu tengok bangsa saya,melayu berjaya?
Berjaya atas titik peluh sendiri atau kena asyik disuap?
Sering kedengaran di sini,s'pura kaum bukan melayu m'sia selalu mengeluh orang melayu m'sia tak payah susah2 hendak banting tulang.Mereka terpakasa bangun pagi terkejar2 mahu ke singapura hendak berkerja.m'sia itu tanah melayu,kaum bukan melayu takde tempat.Kadang2 pilu saya dengar keluhan ini semua.Saya harap anda tidak berkecil hati tetapi catatan saya adalah dari saya sendiri untuk renungan bersama.
Terima kasih.

Sophie,
I am sorry for the use of non-English context made but i guess it's for better understanding for our naufas.
Thank you.

Well thanks for both of you and im not hurt at all.For anonymous i dont think that event half of the msian non bumiputras feel that way but for sure some of them do as menifestated by the result of recently elections.I am not sure where had gone wrong because very much had being done by the past government to correct some of the damage before.
Not eveything which happened caused by the reason thought by the non msian.Malays and other bumiputras can accept the non bumiputras and each other very well.Event some of the policies in the malaysian constitutional law were no longer carried out to provide equalities to others.Just because that its still exist should not mean that its being used to marginalised the non bumi.
Some of them are kept untouched so the bloody incidents in the past does not re occured and to sustain the safetiness, peaceful and prosperous nation for all of this time.
People always said that some of the organisation like the MARA should help equally among the bumi and non bumi but its not fair.MARA had being established by a bumiputra for the bumiputra and run by the bumiputra so if others wanted the same privillage they should(non bumi especially) make or established their own agencies or organisation to help their people.
The government themselve had come with a solution by establishing the PTPTN to make sure that the education fund were given equally among the msian.So i hope that this will make your impression towards the msia(especially bumiputras) more clarer.
And the last one is im not really that bad in english..its just that the 1st time i write it too long so like other msian i would prefer to use a messaging(sms) word which is faster and the meaning were delivered optimumly.Im sorry that it cannot being fully understand.
Thank you.

Good day, sun shines!
There have been times of hardship when I felt unhappy missing knowledge about opportunities of getting high yields on investments. I was a dump and downright pessimistic person.
I have never imagined that there weren't any need in big initial investment.
Now, I'm happy and lucky , I begin to get real money.
It gets down to choose a proper partner who uses your funds in a right way - that is incorporate it in real deals, and shares the income with me.

You can get interested, if there are such firms? I have to tell the truth, YES, there are. Please be informed of one of them:

Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
