Negara Ku and 1Malaysia
Datuk Seri Najib's 1Malaysia initiative is a reinvention of numerous solidarity and equality themes of past administrations.
It is commendable and indeed timely in view of varied circumstances.
There is something done in the past which could be applied to complement and restore the oneness in us Malaysians. Without repackaging.
Playing or singing OUR national anthem, Negara Ku.
In the days of cinemas, just before the feature movie started, the national anthem was played and we would show respect by standing to attention.
I am sure it's being done in schools. It would be more meaningful if it was on Mondays at assembly and Fridays in classes, just before dismissal.
All government departments, agencies and GLCs could do so likewise if they have not already done so. The private sector could follow suit.
At all sporting events and appropriate gatherings.
At concerts, why not? The artists could improvise and perform the anthem.
Let's get together as 1, like we were before.
