Sorry for the absence
I'm back in Malaysia after a hectic overseas trip, with no access to the net. Just arrived this morning, and I'm still jet-lagged. Looks like I've got lots to catch up on.
I am the National Assistant Secretary of MIC Youth, a wing of the Malaysian Indian Congress. I am a telecommunication engineer by qualification. Currently working in a multinational telecom equipment manufacturer, in a regional technical sales role.
I come from a close knit family, parents who have provided more than enough for me, and one lovely sister. My parents brought me up with all the comforts of live in KL, yet always reminded me of the trials and tests they had to put up with in their growing years.
Perhaps it is this reminder, and the knowledge that many in my community, in my country, are still having to undergo the same trials, tests and hardship that has led me into politics. While I may not be able to change it all, I promise to do my part in being that change.
