I watched 'Tiger' - a Malayalam movie yesterday.
In a scene, the protagonist played by actor Suresh Gopi says the following:
"The one word used by politicians to cheat people - development."
Looking at the statement from a Malaysian context, certain parties does actually use the term in every election campaign.
And yet, where is the development for the poor? Why are there underdeveloped areas?
Development can also mean development of the mind. This has been neglected and left to rot as every education ministers who takes charge make changes according to their whims.
As a result, our education standards are low.
We may have more universities than Singapore but lesser intellectuals.
