The Unbearable Heaviness of Being

My quest for the eternal lightness

I said a silent prayer for The Raja Muda of Perak, Raja Nazrin Shah as he sealed his marriage covenant with now Raja Puan Besar Perak, Tuanku Zara Salim Davidson. In a rare expression of royal simplicity and charity, the prince has inspired (in his small ways)  the hope for a new kingdom and a new rule for the subjects of Perak, and beyond. A kingdom in which public funds are not coveted, banquet guests are orphans, children and common folk (people of no political leverage), and a king who passionately declares, “Malaysians of all races, religions, and geographic locations need to believe beyond a shadow of a doubt that they have a place under the Malaysian sun.”

I join in with the millions who secretly crave for the coming of this kingdom.
