Phantom Menace: Part I

The letter was issued yesterday.

Chamat and I had dinner with Mr Anand, Cikgu Yati and Faiz last night.

So I guess finally it has come to fruition. Not in the way I once imagined it would happen, but it happened nevertheless. There are still a lot of gaps to close and loose ends to tighten in the next few months.

When we plan for something, we always picture the moment it materialises. I learnt a long time ago that it never turns out the way you picture it. Most of the time it is an anti climax.

But a good news is still a good news, especially when in the last few years there was hardly any good news at all. We learn to count our blessing.

When I first thought of it (and started writing a long piece on it) about 2 years ago (October 2008), I never thought it would be bloody and long drawn; that it would drag so many innocent people in its trail. But any "war" is never short and precise, US of A is still in Afghanistan 10 years later ha ha despite the shock and awe tactic made popular in the last decade.

I had always referred to the whole thing/campaign/plot as The Phantom Menace, for reasons only known to me (mostly because I am a Star Wars geek).

After the bruises and exhaustion, the news/outcome does not make that much difference, at least not in the manner I thought I would react.

Yet I am also reminded that anything that is good is worth fighting for, it couldn't have happened any other way.

Good luck MCKK and the batches who will come after this, we finally find a closure.
