20 OCTOBER 1947...THE DAY EVERYTHING STOOD STILL


Fahmi Reza has a mesmerizing video on this: SEPULUH TAHUN SEBELUM MERDEKA.

If you haven’t yet, do take time out to watch Sepuluh Tahun Sebelum Merdeka

Also, stop by at his blog

It will take some time loading.....best is to let it load with all the intermitent interruptions. Once it has completed its run.REPLAY. You will never regret watching this. Fahmi Reza will show this production on 3 Nov. at Malam Bangsa Malaysia, at Dewan Sri Penang, Room A. He will give a brief commentary on this. Dont miss it.

Kien, I taught History until 1979, and I dont remember this ever in history books. However, history is not what is written, but what took place. I always take this stand.
Thanks for visiting.

"Di atas robohan kota Melaka,
Kita dirikan jiwa merdeka,
Bersatu-padulah seluruh baka,
Tuntut hak keadilan pusaka."

Selamat Hari Hartal.
