July is here again. It was the month where my late son, Khairul Syakirin or just Adik to us, and I were born.

I was born a day earlier than adik (of course different years), that was on the 22 nd July.

And it was also in July, or 10th of July to be exact, adik left us all. He was called to be among His beloved past midnight July 10 at HKL after suffering from Acute Lymphoblastic Leukimia (ALL) for more than a year.

And today my wife text me asking me for the exact date adik passed away. Well, I don't blame her..It has been 20 years now since he passed away.

July has been and still is a special month to me.

Here I am all alone after office. No one to talk to or to accompany me for dinner, except when the Dean call for either dinner or breakfast.

Sleeping alone at night is the worst torture for a pensioner like me.

With only the television as my companion, that too with an Astro with a limited programme, I while away time before I fall asleep, either on the sofa or on the bare bed.

As far as my sleeping time is concerned, well, it depends on how tired I am at the time. It may be as early as 8.30 or as late as 2.30 in the morning.

It is all up to me to fall asleep. There is nobody to ask me to go to sleep.

Waking up is different. I always wake up a few minutes before the hp alarm goes off, at 5.45 am. 

Yet, I am still accused of being either on the phone most of the time or having a romantic dinner with someone special.

No matter what, I am all alone again, naturally....

No one is guilty of his or her thought. No sin is committed if it is not yet implemented. That is what ISLAM teaches us, not something coming out of my mouth.

So, it is ludicrous, to say the least, to arrest someone wearing a T-shirt with something written on it, something that is so innocent such as the word 'Bersih'.

I am no politician, but being an altruist and a strict defender of the innocents and the underdogs, I detest all forms of actions that are not according to the Law. I hate it when the 'strong' act on the weak just because they fear of the weak wrestling away their power.

I have seen it all. How a peaceful rally turned ugly after it was provoked.

All I want of my country is to respect its citizens' right to voice their feeling, even though it may not be pleasant to the government.

I want MALAYSIA to be a first class country in all aspects of life.

Let them be. Allow them to rally peacefully. Be tough with them only, and only if they become unruly.
