Benazir Bhuto Killed!


The first female Prime Minister in the Muslim world, Benazir Bhutto was assassinated in a gun and bomb attack today in Rawalpindi, Pakistan. Bhutto was attending to a election rally there when the tragedy happens. Wasif Ali Khan a member of Pakistan's Peoples Party (PPP) said Bhutto died at 18.16 (13.16GMT) in Rawalpindi General Hospital. According to BBC news today at least 15 was also killed in the incident.

Democracy in Pakistan seems to be more in vain as how things happened now. By the way will the coming elections on January will still go on despite this tragedy. Is it a conspiracy? It seems that in the event of her assassination there was a bomb blasted nearby and Bhutto was killed by a gunshot on her head in news at Reuters today. Hmm.. it seems like the bomb blasted just to divert the attention and the killer seems to just shot Bhutto direct at her head. Any takers?

Kudos : Ang Lee's film sweeps Taiwan 'Oscars'!


Ang Lee did it again! This time in the Golden Horse awards in Taiwan with his film Caution. This movie is a war drama set in Japanese occupied Shanghai during World War 2 which narrates the fortunes of young woman (played by actress Tang Wei who also won a newcomer award)
embroiled in a plot to seduce an enemy collaborator.


Ang Lee won himself the Best director award and his film Caution won the the Best picture award. The hero of the film Tony Leung Chiu-wai won the Best Actor award too! The golden Horse Awards which is a annual affair here in Taiwan is also dubbed as the Chinese Language equivalent of the Academy Awards. The picture beside from BBC News shows Ang Lee with his two awards and actress Tang Wei with her award.

It is also worthwhile to mention here that Ang Lee is also the famous Taiwanese Oscar winner for the controversial film Brokeback Mountain (one of my favorite too!) which told us about the unorthodox complexity of a romantic and sexual relationship between two men in the American West from 1963 to 1983. Ang's other films includes Hulk and Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon.

Kudos to you again Ang Lee!!

Les Bleus Vs The Azzuri : Euro 2008


Group of Death

Former champions Italy, France and Holland were drawn together with Romania the dark horse in the Group C of coming Euro 2008 will be held from 7th to 29th June in Austria and Switzerland. France and Italy were also both finalist for the Euro 2000 and World Cup 2006, France won the Euro 2000 and Italy is the reigning World Champions by beating France in a penalty shoot out in Germany last year.

The Rest of the Draw

This 13th edition of European Championship will kick off in Basel on June the 7th between Switzerland and Czech Republic in Group A which also consist Portugal and Turkey. In my opinion the Portuguese and Czech Republic should came out easily from this group to go to the last eight of the tournament. Greece the surprise winner of last edition Euro 2002 in drawn in Group D with Sweden, Spain and Russia. Spain and Sweden looks promising from here. In Group B there is the mighty Germans (3 times champions) with Austria the debutant, Poland and Croatia who dashed the English hopes in the qualifying round.

The Gala

The draw was held in Culture and Convention Centre in Lucerne earlier this evening. Being conducted by Swiss actress Melanie Winiger and Austrian television presenter Rainer Pariasek. The duo were joined on stage by representatives of the teams that have lifted the trophy previously: Valentin Ivanov (USSR, 1960), Luis Suárez (Spain, 1964), Dino Zoff (Italy, 1968), Franz Beckenbauer (West Germany, 1972), Anton Ondrus (Czechoslovakia, 1976), Bernard Dietz (West Germany, 1980), Michel Platini (France, 1984), Marco van Basten (Netherlands, 1988), Peter Schmeichel (Denmark, 1992), Jürgen Klinsmann (Germany, 1996), Didier Deschamps (France, 2000), and Theodoros Zagorakis (Greece, 2004).

Wong Mew Choo... Chooo Cweet!


Nothing is Impossible! In Tianhe Gymnasium, Guangzhou, China today behind the partisan Chinese crowd backed by the Great Wall of China, the Numero Uno lady singles player of our nation defeated Xie Xingfang of China to win herself the first Super Series Crown. Congrats to you Mew Choo. You made us proud!

Mew Choo beats Xingfang who is also the world number one seeded player in dramatic rubber set games of 21-16, 8-21 and 21-17. It is also worth to mention here that Mew Choo defeated 4 top seeded Chinese players in this tournament all the way to Final.

Batu Putih..... so close Yet so Far.........and Away?



Singapore's Photo

Our Photo
picture source: Jeff Ooi

Read the full details on Jeff's site. Like this also can happen ah? Is this how we fight a case in International Court of Justice . You can see the difference of both photo's background hill part of the pictures. The Malaysian photo have a slightly high visibility of the Mount Berbukit compared to Singapore. (Well not slightly high is it? Extra high maa..) Singapore’s Deputy Prime Minister Professor S. Jayakumar and Singapore’s Attorney-General Chao Hick Tin managed to pecah tembelang of Malaysia in their in final arguments of the case. By the way I'm also wondering as Rocky, what is our Deputy Prime Minister doing here in the midst all this thing? Flabbergasted?? Me too!

Funniest part is that, our country being so opposed and against all those blogger, then how on earth use a picture from a blog with no proper identification and better still only created a month ago to present a case in International Court of Justice. Lol! Further claims that the picture was from a independent source! Maybe chili sauce la..

This is Malaysia Bolehland, today I'm here blogging and who knows tomorrow I may be in Nowhere land too!

Deepavali Valthukal!


yes! Happy Deepavali to all Indian's. So many myths and legacy about this festival which is also known as the festival of lights. People of Ayodhya welcome back Sri Rama from exile after 14 years in forest by lighting up lamps (deepa = lights ,wali = path) marks the festival for the last six days in the month of Aswayuja (amantha) or no moon month according to the Hindu calendar.

This festival is also remembered as the day when the great Rama wins over demonic Ravana or Lord Krishna's famous victory over Narakasura. King Mahabali 's obedience towards Vishnu to rule the nether-world before the era of Rama also closely associated with this festival. This refers to Onam better I suppose.

Anyhow back to the real thing, Deepavali for me symbolically represents the victory of good over evil and the upliftment of our inner or spiritual darkness. As the story Ramayana tells, people of Ayodhaya celebrates the homecoming of Rama (goodwill and faith) by lighting up lamps after a long absence (Ramayana's exile in forest for 14 years) .

So to all my fellow Indians, Deepavali is not just about new clothes, food, gold or ornaments, and new business only but Deepavali is also about the awakening of our spirit and being illuminated by divine grace. On this Deepavali day, my wish to all of you... Light up the Jyoti of your soul!

Ciao!

This is wild!!!!!!!


(From a forwarded email)

If your brain works normally this is neat.


This is another example of an amazing illusion!!! The last sentence is so
true. If your eyes follow the movement of the rotating pink dot, the dots
will remain only one color, pink.


However if you stare at the black " +" in the center, the moving dot turns
to green.Now, concentrate on the black " + " in the centare of the picture.
After a short period, all the pink dots will slowly disappear, and you will
only see only a single green dot rotating. It's amazing how our brain
works. There really is no green dot , and the pink ones really don't
disappear. This should be proof enough, we don't always see what we think
we see.

Brazil Wins Fifa World Cup 2014 ....

Really? Nope.. Not yet Brazil. The South American nations, the fifth most populous country in the globe, fifth most largest country in the world and also the five time Fifa World Cup holders has been awarded the right to host the Fifa World Cup 2014 since 1950. On that occasion Brazil lost the final round robin match 2 -1 to Uruguay (this was the only tournament not decided by a one-match final) the eventual champions in Maracana Stadium, Rio de Janeiro in front of almost 200,000 spectators. Uruguay's victory over Brazil is regarded as one of the biggest upsets in sports history, commonly known as the Maracanazo.

Sepp Blatter, the Fifa President announce the decision earlier today in Zurich. Brazil were the only country bidding to host the finals, but their delegation went through the formality of making a 30-minute presentation to the world governing body's executive committee in Zurich, before being officially awarded the finals.

Blatter said "There was an extraordinary presentation by the delegation and we witnessed that this World Cup will have such a big social and cultural impact in Brazil". Correct indeed! In Brazil football is considered as religion besides having the largest Roman Catholics believers in the world. Hope the Brazilian people will rejoice by the decision to host the World Cup 2014. I'm not a big fan of Brazil in terms of football, but really favors the South American brand football more than Europe. For all the Brazil fans out there.. Good Luck!!

P/s : I hope Argentina wins the 2014 World Cup and also coming 2010 World Cup in South Africa too!

Inside Myanmar (Burma) : The Brutal Crackdown!


Here is a video by Al Jazeera's reporter Tony Birtley who went undercover in Burma to report exclusively on the people's protests and resulting bloody crackdown by Burma's military government, talking to the protesters, filming the bloody crackdown and gauging the mood of the nation.



As I watched the video, I could not believe my eyes seeing so many monks who were so calm and contended in their march showing protest against the military regime. I salute their actions demanding for democracy, which is really deserved by the Burmese people under the ruling of brutal regime for the past forty years in Burma. The monks really showed to the world that they are not just a bunch people sitting in Buddha temple reciting holy mantras, preaching and talking good karma, practicing celibacy etc. For me what they did on that video marching on the streets of Rangoon and demanding democracy for the people of their country is what really good karma is all about!

The worst thing is that how could the military regime impose such an violent act towards the defenseless monks? What karma could all this military people get for being such a bloody ruthless human being? Aren't you too a Buddhist like those monks were? What crime did the unarmed monks did to deserve such a brutal treatment? Come On United Nations and please do something about this. Tomorrow, 24th October is the United Nations Day. Is it just going to be an high tea party and swiss roles celebration in U.N? Please don't let any more monks to die or to be harassed in any prison! They don't deserve this. The killing will continue as long as the U.N didn't step up. Ha ha! There is bell rings on my head now! And what about you U.S of America? Are you just going to sit and watch all this nonsense? Come on U.S.A step up! Do something right for the first time in the history of America. You Americans love to stick your nose where nobody really wants it but right now in Burma some good people really needs your assistance. Please save the monks and Burma now!

thanks & regards

P/S: Is it Burma OR Iran which is going to be United State's next mission? Just wondering who had the more natural gas resources?

Don't Let the World Forget About the Saffron Revolution


Im forwarding an email by uscampaignforburma.org for your info about action plans on Burma for Wednesday, October 24th,the United Nations Day.




This Wednesday, October 24th, is an important day for Burma. It is: 1) United Nations Day, 2) The day when Aung San Suu Kyi will have been under house arrest for a total of 12 years, and 3) One month since the uprisings in Burma were at their peak.

We will be marking this day with a host of actions around the world.

- Several organizations are working together to organize in 12 cities around the world. At 12 noon, demonstrators dressed in white (as political prisoners are forced to wear inside Burma) will gather in front of Chinese embassies. Please let us know if you want to participate in the demonstration in Washington, DC.

- A group of Burmese monks and exiles have been marching from Albany, NY to the United Nations in a peace walk. On Wednesday, please join with them as they continue their march from the Burmese regime's Mission in New York to the United Nations from 10-11 am. The Mission is located on 10E and 77th St. For more info, the cell phone for the peace walk is (518) 605-8506.

- For those of you who cannot participate in these actions we are asking you to ensure that the American public does not forget Burma. We are asking you on this day to reinvigorate public attention by writing an op-ed article for your local newspaper, write a post on your blog or facebook profile, host a teach in for your friends and neighbors, or for more suggestions or visit our action page.

The Burmese regime may be the jailer of Aung San Suu Kyi and thousands of other prisoners, but China holds the key to her release. The United Nations Security Council (of which China is a member) must act urgently as more and more people are being hunted down, arrested and tortured. China must not block Security Council action. We will show that we will not allow Burma's regime to hide its abuses from the world.. The United Nations Security Council needs to pass a global arms embargo now!

08/08/08: Celebrating the Chinese Olympics or Commemorating a Burmese Massacre?


August 08, 2008 will not only be the opening date of Beijing Olympic, but will also mark the 20Th anniversary of Pro-Democracy protest in Burma on 1988. The Chinese government stated that date 08.08.08 was chosen for a symbolic reason but the recent events in Burma and the China ties with the military government would emphasis more global attention on the suffering of Burmese people. “If China takes a strong stand on Burma now, it will be credited rather than criticized on 08-08-08,” said Sophie Richardson, Asia Advocacy of Human Rights Watch following a letter to President Hu Jintao on 17.10.2007. “Doing so isn’t just right; it’s also in China’s self-interest.”

China is one of Burma's largest investors and suppliers of weaponry. Being so, the Chinese government should immediately take concrete steps to help end state repression in Burma stated Richardson. The letter basically urges Hu Jintao to take the eight steps to end the repression in Burma currently:

  • Immediately place an embargo on all weapons transfers from China to Burma and suspend all military training, transport, assistance, and cooperation.
  • Support or abstain from vetoing UN Security Council resolutions calling for sanctions or other collective action to address the crisis in Burma.
  • In the absence of Security Council-imposed sanctions, China (along with other countries) should act to impose targeted sanctions to encourage the steps outlined above.
  • Uphold the 1951 Refugee Convention and customary international law and allow anyone fleeing persecution in Burma to cross the border into China.
  • Suspend involvement by state-owned China National Petroleum Corporation and Sinopec, both official Olympic partners, in proposed Burma-China oil and natural gas pipelines until the conditions specified above in relation to multilateral sanctions are met.
  • Instruct Chinese firms, including stated-owned firms, with business ties to Burma to publicly and fully disclose all payments made to the Burmese military, directly or through the entities it controls.
  • Continue to urge the Burmese military government to engage in dialogue with its critics, and end its repression of them. The Seven Step Road Map to Democracy, which is merely a cover for continued military rule, must be scrapped and replaced with a plan that has the genuine support of Burma’s political parties and ethnic groups.
  • Urge the Burmese government to reconvene a truly representative and participatory national convention that operates through an open and transparent consultative process that could lead to a new constitutional settlement that genuinely reflects the views of all parties and leads to the creation of a civilian government.
Olympic 2008 is the stage where global attention is turning towards China and the stand that China will took to mitigate the suffering and pain of Burmese people for their right of democracy. I hope the Chinese government wouldn't really wants the world to recall on the 08.08.08 at the launching of their Olympic Games, the massacre of more than 3000 peoples being slaughtered and killed on August 1988 on the Pro-Democracy protest held in Burma.

Let's hope for the best now for Burma!

Save Burma Please!


In recent time, most of us knew about the crisis in Burma. Or am I the only stranger here? Let me elaborate a few things based on my limited knowledge about Burma and let us see what we as human generally and of course blogger specifically can do to mitigate the brutal killing and slaughtering happening in Burma. The South East Asia country has been ruled for the past 40 years by one of the most ruthless military regime. People of Burma has been devoid of democracy all this while under the ruling regime. The last major demand of the Burmese people for democracy was started by students back in August 1988. Still remember the so called 8888 Uprising? Students, soldiers, monks all joined the protest demanding for their right for democracy. But what happened? It's come to a bloody end as the regime army killed thousands of protesters and since then the ruling regime held the country in an iron grip.





For the first time in 30 bloody years, the regime held a 'free' election in May 1990. Guys, do you remember Aung San Suu Kyi? Yes, that Nobel Laurette which I'm talking about. The National League for Democracy (NLD) led by Aung San Suu Kyi won the election on May 1990. But sadly the ruling regime of the country annulled the result and do not step down. Goddamn SHIT! Aung San Suu Kyi was imprisoned later. Since then the protest against the military junta has been slowing down. The Iron Grip remains strong in Burma. But that was about to change now!

Recently, in August after the rise of fuel price the military junta also witnessing the rising of Burmese people as well. Started by the activist of NLD protesting against the fuel price hike sooner joined by ordinary people and Buddhist monks. It all started to become worst when the regime beats up several monks during a rally in Pakokku. The regime who were actually hoping the demonstration would slow down after the incident, but the monks seems not going to slow down! Monks in hundreds and even thousands were marching all over the country demanding an apology from the government ruled by the junta. BBC states that the protest was going so huge joined 150 nuns and further urging civilians to join in the protest. The more the merrier!

The Alliance of all Buddhist Monks, who were heading the protest had sworn that they will never stop until they had “wiped the military dictatorship from the land”. Can the monks do it all by themselves? How did the monks going to fight against the junta? Don't expect that the monks will use some magic spell to ward off the machine guns shooting bullets against their chest. I doubt the monks can bring the long stolen democracy back to Burma. There is a Burmese saying tells that when the "three son's" (i.e the soldiers, the monks and the students) of the nation joins hand, the military junta can be brought down to ground.

As we knew out the the three sons, the monks are already united and marching all over the country, the students has been quietly preaching for democracy ever since 1988. Now the youngest son, the soldiers, are they going to join their elder siblings and force the so called long forgotten democracy back in Burma? Or another dejavu as it was in 1988 when the junta crushed all the dreams of democracy. At last according to Guardian the British newspaper the third son is just around the corner to help his elder brothers.

Guardian reported that army Division 33 has refused to shoot at the people in Mandalay. The government then ordered Division 33 to move out of Mandalay but they refused to follow the order. The junta has sent Division 99 to replace Division 33, according to unconfirmed rumors, fighting has broken out between the two divisions. The Guardian also reports that disgruntled officers have formed a group called the Public Patriot Army Association and expressed their backing for demonstrators.

It is a promising development if an entire division has refused to shoot at the people, and is more willing to fight other army divisions than unarmed civilians. Hopefully, other divisions will follow the example of Division 33, and there will be no need for infighting in the junta army. If enough soldiers refuse to shoot, the military junta will have lost their only important means of staying in power, and the people will have won a strong and important ally. Only time will tell whether the three sons together will help to save their parents, Burma.

According to RWB, the Burmese junta has shut down Internet connections and phone lines, and the military are hounding the foreign journalists still working on the ground. At least one was forced to take refuge in an embassy or go underground. Several Burmese publications have closed after refusing to publish propaganda articles, and the ones still in print do not cover either the protests or the government crackdown.

27.09.2007 is a sad Wednesday for Burmese people. The military junta in Rangoon opens fire against the monks and protesters killing 3 people at least. Further, police raided Buddhist temples and detained almost 200 monks on the night itself. The most saddest thing is what happens to China? It's one of the country in the world that the Burmese military junta actually listens to but sadly the Chinese together with Russia has blocked any suggestion of global sanctions against the Burmese regime at the UN security council emergency session September 26. WTF??

Despite the military junta’s violent crackdown on all forms of protests, the Burmese people keep fighting for their rights. Bravo! The junta is now focusing more on silencing the media and political opposition. Many journalists and writers are reported missing, their whereabouts unknown. While some of the monks who were arrested during the protests last week are now released, the government keep rounding up and arresting more monks, as well as journalists, writers and NLD politicians.

However, the brave Burmese people has not given up. The BBC reports that the Burmese are not just afraid but intensely angry, and that this is definitely not the end of the protests. Even when faced with very real threats of violence, torture and death, the Burmese people keep fighting for their rights. This time around they want their democracy and they will fight all the way.

Now it's time for us to support and help Burmese people. Burma really needs you to support the monks and protesters. Those protesting out there might be brave and willing to sacrifice their life for their democracy. But that's not the way this all demonstration and protest should end. The monks and protesters needs International support and this is where we blogger and fellow Internet community could came out and offer our hands! We can do it just within the reach of our fingertips.



Boycott Olympic 2008 in Beijing. China has the most power to halt the military junta generals reign of power. But sadly, China have used their permanent seat in the UN Security Council to block all resolutions mentioning sanctions against the junta. Hopefully, China should be sensitive to international pressure now, as the 2008 Olympics will be held in Beijing. Let us take this opportunity to pressure China not to use their veto power to avoid mentioning sanctions against the military junta of Burma. Guys you all can do it at both these places . 1) China help Burma. and 2) China help Burma.

Amnesty International also do provides the text and and address for you to mail to if you are going to target direct at the military junta for releasing all the detained monks and protesters. You can do so here.



Please try to do any of this little help that we can do to save a nation who just needs freedom and democracy. I feel most of us here would also have the same thought like me. Let us all blogger and fellow Internet community join our hands together to be the fourth son of Burma. Let us try our best to give what the Burmese people really deserve.


thanks & regards

Indian Classical Bharathanatyam Dance



Harini Jeevitha, 12 years old.


Arcana Raja, 13 years old.

Indian dance performed by these ladies is authentic solo Mellathur style of Bharathanatyam which is famous in South Indian province of the multi cultured and colourful India. This popular South Indian dance form called Bharatanatyam is a 20th century reconstruction of Cathir, the art of temple dancers. Cathir in turn, is derived from ancient dance forms. The word Bharata, some believe, signifies the author of the famous Sanskrit treatise on stagecraft, called NatyaShastra, and the word Bharatanatyam is sometimes given a folk etymology as follows:Bha for Bhava or abhinaya and expression, Ra for raga or melody, and Ta for tala or rhythm.

Bharata refers to the author of Natya Sastra, and natya is Sanskrit meaning for the art of sacred dance-drama brought to the stage at the beginning of the 20Th century. For further info on this classical Indian heritage refer to wikipedia.org

Back to the video performance of the dancers, I could not believe that both of them were such young girls who not only performed the movements of the dance in such a articulate manner but also the facial expression or abhinaya was simply superb. Especially Arcana Raja is amazing.

Being an Indian, it always make me feel good to witness a good Bharathanatyam from Indian dancers. As far as I'm concern there is no other classical Indian dance has the richness of Bharathanatyam. You can't have all the effect of this dance like energy, agility, expressions, control, grace, youthfulness and the same time inept maturity in any other form of dance. Divine dance of India. Enjoy the dance. You may feel free to disagree.

Venmai (White)




Venmai is a short film inspired by a true story about a young girl's torment in an estate. The complete shooting of Venmai was done in 14 hours without any prior rehearsal. Some of the actors were also selected in the estate and trained on the spot. Some of the actual facts have been altered for theatrical purposes.

What a picture?



Nice picture I found in Politik 101 Malaysia

A picture that really speaks thousand words! That's my opinion. No matter what happened in our lives or how many problems we encounter in our lives, our own home and family is still the best place to be in! After full day of hectic and chaos in our daily routine 'mencari sesuap nasi', somehow I always feel cozy and warm in my own little house.

There is a God!




About 12yr old kid's battle against cancer. He loved to sing but one day he woke up and his beautiful voice was gone. A few days later he was diagnosed with cancer. He worried if he would ever be able to sing again. Between chemo-sessions he spent time at ZM’s Day Center composing, arranging and trying to keep his voice fit under professional musical guidance. This resulted in a song about his illness, his hopes and fears. Three days before his Bar Mitzvah he left the hospital after a week of intensive chemo therapy, and headed straight for the studio to record his song.

At the day of his Bar Mitzvah he went to the Kotel to pray and give thanks. Later that night a few hundred guests joined him at ZM’s Day Center for a Bar Mitzvah celebration that none of the guests will ever forget. This video was played at the highlight of the night.

Old Deepavali TV Ad.

Why the wedding ring worn on the fourth finger


This is sweet... Forwarded via email to me!

This is interesting. Try it out!

Why should the wedding ring be worn on the fourth finger? There is a beautiful and convincing explanation .....

1. Thumb represents your Parents
2. Second (Index) finger represents your Siblings
3. Middle finger represents your-Self
4. Fourth (Ring) finger represents your Life Partner
5. and the Last (Little) finger represents your children

1. Firstly, open your palms (face to face), bend the middle fingers and hold them together - back to back
2. Secondly, open and hold the remaining three fingers and the thumb - tip to tip (As shown in the figure below):
3. Now, try to separate your thumbs (representing the parents)..., they will open, because your parents are not destined to live with you lifelong, and have to leave you sooner or later.
4. Please join your thumbs as before and separate your Index fingers (representing siblings)...., they will also open, because your brothers and sisters will have their own families and will have to lead their own separate lives.
5. Now join the Index fingers and separate your Little fingers (representing your children)...., they will open too, because the children also will get married and settle down on their own some day.
6. Finally, join your Little fingers, and try to separate your Ring fingers (representing your spouse). You will be surprised to see that you just CANNOT....., because Husband & Wife have to remain together all their lives - through thick and thin!!

Do try this out............. ISN'T THIS A LOVELY THEORY?

Overview


Homosexuality can refer to both attraction or sexual behavior between people of the same sex, or to a sexual orientation. When describing the latter, it refers to enduring sexual and romantic attraction towards those of the same sex, but not necessarily to sexual behavior. Homosexuality is contrasted with heterosexuality, bisexuality and asexuality.

The word homosexualis a Greek and Latin hybrid with homo (often confused with the later Latin meaning of "man", as in homo sapiens) deriving from the Greek word for same, thus connoting sexual acts and affections between members of the same sex, including lesbianism. In the English-speaking world, the term gay had been used within the subculture for decades before becoming popularized by the gay rights movement in the 1970s. In a narrow sense, gay refers to male homosexuality, but it often is used in its broadest sense, especially in media headlines and reports, to refer to homosexuality in general. Lesbian, however, always denotes a homosexual woman.

Homosexuality has been a feature of human culture since earliest history (see History section below). Generally, and most famously in ancient Greece, erotic attraction and sexual pleasure between males has been an ingrained, accepted part of the cultural norm. However, particular sexual activities (such as receptive anal sex in some cultures, or oral sex in others) were disapproved of, even as other aspects were admired. In cultures under the sway of Abrahamic religions, the law and the church established sodomy as a transgression against divine law, a "crime against nature" practiced by choice, and subject to severe penalties, including capital punishment - often inflicted by means of fire so as to purify the unholy action. The condemnation of penetrative sex between males, however, predates Christian dogma, as it was frequent in Ancient Greece, whence the theme of "crime against nature," traceable to Plato, originated. In the last two decades of the nineteenth century, a different view began to predominate in medical and psychiatric circles, judging such behavior as indicative of a type of person with a defined and relatively stable sexual orientation. Karl-Maria Kertbeny coined the term homosexual in 1869 in a pamphlet arguing against a Prussian anti-sodomy law. Richard von Krafft-Ebing's 1886 book Psychopathia Sexualis elaborated on the concept. In 1897, British physician Havelock Ellis published similar views in his influential book Sexual Inversion. Although medical texts like these (written partly in Latin to obscure the sexual details) were not widely read by the general public, they did lead to the rise of Magnus Hirschfeld's Scientific Humanitarian Committee, which campaigned from 1897 to 1933 against anti-sodomy laws in Germany, as well as a much more informal, unpublicized movement among British intellectuals and writers, led by such figures as Edward Carpenter and John Addington Symonds. In the course of the twentieth century, homosexuality became a subject of considerable study and debate in Western societies, especially after the modern gay rights movement began in 1969. Viewed by some as a pathology or mental illness to be cured, homosexuality is now more often investigated as part of a larger impetus to understand the biology, psychology, politics, genetics, history and cultural variations of sexual practice and identity. The legal and social status of people who perform homosexual acts or identify as gay or lesbian varies enormously across the world and remains hotly contested in political and religious debate.


Etymology and usage

The adjective homosexual describes behavior, relationships, people, etc. The adjectival form literally means "same sex", being a hybrid formed from the Greek prefix homo- ("same"), and the Latin root sex. Many modern style guides recommend against using homosexual as a noun, instead using gay man or lesbian. Similarly, some recommend completely avoiding usage of homosexual as having a negative and discredited clinical history and because the word only refers to one's sexual behavior, and not to romantic feelings. Gay and lesbian are the most common alternatives. The first letters are frequently combined to create the acronym LGBT (sometimes written as GLBT), in which B and T refer to bisexuals and transgender people. The first known appearance of homosexual in print is found in an 1869 German pamphlet by the Austrian-born novelist Karl-Maria Kertbeny, published anonymously. The prevalence of the concept owes much to the work of the German psychiatrist Richard Freiherr von Krafft-Ebing and his 1886 work Psychopathia Sexualis. As such, the current use of the term has its roots in the broader 19th century tradition of personality taxonomy. These continue to influence the development of the modern concept of sexual orientation, gaining associations with romantic love and identity in addition to its original, exclusively sexual meaning. Although early writers also used the adjective homosexual to refer to any single-sex context (such as an all-girls' school), today the term is used exclusively in reference to sexual attraction and activity. The term homosocial is now used to describe single-sex contexts that are not specifically sexual. There is also a word referring to same-sex love, homophilia. Other terms include men who have sex with men or MSM (used in the medical community when specifically discussing sexual activity), homoerotic (referring to works of art), heteroflexible (referring to a person who identifies as heterosexual, but occasionally engages in same-sex sexual activities), and metrosexual (referring to a straight man with stereotypically gay tastes in food, fashion, and design). Pejorative terms include queer, faggot, fairy, poof, and homo. Beginning in the 1990s, some of these have been "reclaimed" as positive words by gay men and lesbians, as in the usage of queer studies, queer theory, and even the popular American television program Queer Eye for the Straight Guy. However, as with ethnic slurs and racial slurs, the misuse of these terms can still be highly offensive; the range of acceptable use depends on the context and speaker. Conversely, gay, a word originally embraced by homosexual men and women as a positive, affirmative term (as in gay liberation and gay rights), has come into widespread pejorative use among young people.


History

Modern Western gay culture, largely a product of 19th century psychology as well as the years of post-Stonewall Gay Liberation, is a relatively recent manifestation of same-sex desire. It is generally not applicable as a standard when investigating same-sex sexual relations and historical opinions and beliefs held by other people. The lives of many historical figures including Socrates, Alexander the Great, Lord Byron, Edward II, Hadrian, Julius Caesar, Michelangelo, Donatello and Christopher Marlowe included or were centered upon love and sexual relationships with people of their own sex. Terms such as gay or bisexual have been applied to them, but many, such as Michel Foucault, regard this as risking the anachronistic introduction of a contemporary construction of sexuality foreign to their times. A common thread of constructionist argument is that no one in antiquity or the Middle Ages experienced homosexuality as an exclusive, permanent, or defining mode of sexuality. John Boswell has criticized this argument by citing ancient Greek writings by Plato, which he says indicate knowledge of exclusive homosexuality.


Prejudice against gay and lesbian people

In many cultures, gay and lesbian people are frequently subject to prejudice and discrimination. Like many other minority groups that are the objects of prejudice, they are also subject to stereotyping. Gay men are seen as effeminate and fashionable, often identified with a lisp or a female-like tone and lilt. They are stereotyped as being promiscuous and unsuccessful in developing enduring romantic relationships, despite research to the contrary. Gay men are also often alleged as having pedophiliac tendencies and more likely to commit child sexual abuse than the heterosexual male population, a view rejected by mainstream psychiatric groups and contradicted by research. Lesbians are seen as butch, and sometimes "man-haters" or radical feminists. Homosexuality has at times been used as a scapegoat by governments facing problems. For example, during the early 14th century, accusations of homosexual behavior were instrumental in disbanding the Knights Templar under Philip IV of France, who profited greatly from confiscating the Templars' wealth. In the 20th century, Nazi Germany's persecution of homosexual people was based on the proposition that they posed a threat to "normal" masculinity as well as a risk of contamination to the "Aryan race". In the 1950s, at the height of the red scare in the United States, hundreds of federal and state employees were fired because of their homosexuality in the so-called lavender scare. (Ironically, politicians opposed to the scare tactics of McCarthyism tried to discredit Senator Joseph McCarthy by hinting during a televised Congressional committee meeting that McCarthy's top aide, Roy Cohn, was homosexual, as he in fact was.) A recent instance of scapegoating is the burning of 6,000 books of homoerotic poetry of 8th c. Persian-Arab poet Abu Nuwas by the Egyptian Ministry of Culture in January 2001, to placate Islamic fundamentalists.

Sexual orientation and the law

In some cultures homosexuality is still considered "unnatural" and is outlawed. In some Muslim nations (such as Iran) and African countries it remains a capital crime. In a highly publicized case, two male teenagers, Mahmoud Asgari and Ayaz Marhoni, were hanged in Iran in 2005 reportedly because they had been caught having sex with each other. Employment discrimination refers to discriminatory employment practices such as bias in hiring, promotion, job assignment, termination, and compensation, and various types of harassment. In the United States there is "very little statutory, common law, and case law establishing employment discrimination based upon sexual orientation as a legal wrong." Some exceptions and alternative legal strategies are available. President Bill Clinton's Executive Order 13087 (1998) prohibits discrimination based on sexual orientation in the competitive service of the federal civilian workforce, and federal non-civil service employees may have recourse under the due process clause of the U.S. Constitution. Private sector workers may have a Title VII action under a quid pro quo sexual harassment theory, a "hostile work environment" theory, a sexual stereotyping theory, or others. Housing discrimination refers to discrimination against potential or current tenants by landlords. In the United States, there is no federal law against such discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity, but at least thirteen states and many major cities have enacted laws prohibiting it. A sodomy law is a law that defines certain sexual acts as sex crimes. The precise sexual acts meant by the term sodomy are rarely spelled out in the law, but is typically understood by courts to include any sexual act which does not lead to procreation. Furthermore, Sodomy has many synonyms: buggery, crime against nature, unnatural act, deviant sexual intercourse. It also has a range of similar euphemisms. While in theory this may include heterosexual oral sex, anal sex, masturbation, and bestiality, in practice such laws are primarily enforced against sex between men (particularly anal sex). In the United States, 47 out of 50 states had repealed any specifically anti-homosexual-conduct laws when the Supreme Court invalidated all sodomy laws in Lawrence v. Texas. Hate crimes (also known as bias crimes) are crimes motivated by bias against an identifiable social group, usually groups defined by race, religion, sexual orientation, disability, ethnicity, nationality, age, gender, gender identity, or political affiliation. In the United States, 45 states and the District of Columbia have statutes criminalizing various types of bias-motivated violence or intimidation (the exceptions are AZ, GA, IN, SC, and WY). Each of these statutes covers bias on the basis of race, religion, and ethnicity; 32 of them cover sexual orientation, 28 cover gender, and 11 cover transgender/gender-identity.

Violence against gay and lesbian people

In the United States, the FBI reported that 15.6% of hate crimes reported to police in 2004 were based on perceived sexual orientation. 61% of these attacks were against gay men. The 1998 murder of Matthew Shepard, a gay student, is the most famous incident in the United States.[citation needed] Homosexual acts are punishable by death in some present-day countries including Iran, Mauritania, Nigeria, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Sudan, United Arab Emirates, and Yemen.

Coming out

Many people who feel attracted to members of their own sex have a so-called "coming out" at some point in their lives. Generally, coming out is described in three phases. The first phase is the phase of "knowing oneself," and the realization or decision emerges that one is open to same-sex relations. This is often described as an internal coming out. The second phase involves one's decision to come out to others, e.g. family, friends, and/or colleagues. This occurs with many people as early as age 11, but others do not clarify their sexual orientation until age 40 or older. The third phase more generally involves living openly as an LGBT person. In the United States today, people often come out during high school or college age. At this age, they may not trust or ask for help from others, especially when their orientation is not accepted in society. Sometimes their own parents are not even informed. Outing is the practice of publicly revealing the sexual orientation of a closeted person. Notable politicians, celebrities, military service people, and clergy members have been outed, with motives ranging from malice to political or moral beliefs. Many commentators oppose the practice altogether, while some encourage outing public figures who use their positions of influence to harm other gay people.

Mental health issues

Homosexuality is no longer regarded as a mental illness by the scientific community. In 1973 the American Psychiatric Association (APA) removed homosexuality as a disorder from the Sexual Deviancy section of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, the DSM-II. The World Health Organization's ICD-9 (1977) listed homosexuality as a mental illness, and in 1990, a resolution was adopted to remove it in the ICD-10 (1993). The ICD-10 added ego-dystonic sexual orientation to the list, which refers to people who want to change their gender identities or sexual orientation because of a psychological or behavioral disorder (F66.1). Some organizations, including the United States Department of Defense and those who believe in reparative therapy, do not accept the mainstream medical position.

Sexual practices

Lesbian possibilities include tribadism, mutual masturbation, cunnilingus, and the use of sex toys for vaginal or oral penetration or clitoral stimulation. Gay men can engage in mutual masturbation, intercrural sex, oral sex and anal sex. As with any sexual relationship, people may begin with various forms of foreplay such as fondling, caressing, and kissing, and may eventually progress from there.

Theories on homosexuality

The American Academy of Pediatrics has stated, "Sexual orientation probably is not determined by any one factor but by a combination of genetic, hormonal, and environmental influences." The American Psychological Association has stated that "there are probably many reasons for a person's sexual orientation and the reasons may be different for different people". However, it states that for most people, sexual orientation is determined at an early age. The degree to which sexual orientation is determined by genetic or other prenatal factors plays a role in political and social debates about homosexuality, and also raises fears about genetic profiling and prenatal testing.

Biological explanations

In 1993, Dean Hamer found the genetic marker Xq28 on the X chromosome. Hamer's study found a link between the Xq28 marker and male homosexuality, but the original study's results have been disputed. Several mutations have been identified in flies, such as changes in the fruitless gene, cause male flies to court and attempt to mate with other males; however, when a modified male fruit fly is isolated with only female fruit flies, then he will attempt to mate with them. Twin studies give indications that male homosexuality is genetically mediated. One common type of twin study compares the monozygotic (or identical) twins of people possessing a particular trait to the dizygotic (non-identical, or fraternal) twins of people possessing the trait. Bailey and Pillard (1991) in a study of gay twins found that 52% of monozygotic brothers and 22% of the dizygotic twins were concordant for homosexuality. Bailey, Dunne and Martin (2000) used the Australian twin registry to obtain a sample of 4,901 twins.

Prenatal hormonal theory

Simon LeVay explains the basics of this theory:

In experimental animals it’s been well established that the sexual differentiation of the body and brain results primarily from the influence of sex hormones secreted by the testes or ovaries (Arnold 2002). Males have high levels of testosterone in fetal life (after functional development of the testes) and around the time of birth, as well as at and after puberty. Females have low levels of all sex hormones in fetal life, and high levels of estrogens and progestagens starting at puberty. High prenatal testosterone levels organize the brain in a male-specific fashion; low levels testosterone permits it to organize in a female-specific fashion. Hormones at puberty activate the circuits laid down in prenatal life but do not fundamentally change them. Thus, the range of sexual behaviors that adult animals can show is determined in large part by their prenatal/perinatal hormone exposure—manipulating these hormone levels can lead to atypical sex behavior or preference for same-sex sex partners as well as a range of other gender-atypical characteristics.

Physiological differences in gay men and lesbians

Recent studies have found notable differences between the physiology of gay people and straight people. There is evidence that: The average size of the INAH-3 in the brains of gay men is approximately the same size as INAH 3 in women, which is significantly smaller, and the cells more densely packed, than in heterosexual men's brains. The anterior commissure is larger in women than men, and larger in gay men than in straight men. Gay men's brains respond differently to fluoxetine, a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor. The functioning of the inner ear and the central auditory system in lesbians and bisexual women are more like the functional properties found in men than in straight women (the researchers argued this finding was consistent with the prenatal hormonal theory of sexual orientation. The startle response (eyeblink following a loud sound) is similarly masculinized in lesbians and bisexual women. Three regions of the brain (medial prefrontal cortex, left hippocampus, and right amygdala) are more active in gay men than straight men when exposed to sexually arousing material. Gay and straight people emit different armpit odors. Gay and straight people's brains respond differently to two human sex pheromones (AND, found in male armpit secretions, and EST, found in female urine). Gay men have, on an average, slightly longer and thicker penises than straight men. Finger length ratios between the index and ring fingers may be different between straight and lesbian women.


Cognitive differences in gay men and lesbians

Likewise, recent studies have found notable differences between the cognitive features of gay people and straight people. There is evidence that: Gay men and lesbians are significantly more likely to be left-handed or ambidextrous than straight men and women; Simon LeVay argues that because "[h]and preference is observable before birth.. [t]he observation of increased non-right-handness in gay people is therefore consistent with the idea that sexual orientation is influenced by prenatal processes." Gay men and lesbians are more verbally fluent than heterosexuals of the same gender (but two studies did not find this result).Gay men are better than straight men at object location memory (no difference was found between lesbians and straight women).

Fraternal birth order

There is evidence from numerous studies that gay men tend to have more older brothers than do straight men. One reported that each older brother increases the odds of being gay by 33%. To explain this finding, it has been proposed that male fetuses provoke a maternal immune reaction that becomes stronger with each successive male fetus. Male fetuses produce H-Y antigens which are "almost certainly" involved in the sexual differentiation of vertebrates. It is this antigen which maternal H-Y antibodies are proposed to both react to and 'remember.' Successive male fetuses are then attacked by H-Y antibodies which somehow decrease the ability of H-Y antigens to perform their usual function in brain masculinization. This is now known as the fraternal birth order effect. There is a link to homosexuality only if the older brothers were biologically related and even when they were not raised together.[citation needed] Interestingly, this relation seems to hold only for right-handed males. There has been no observed equivalent for women.

Non-biological explanations

Environment

There is some evidence that gay men report having had less loving and more rejecting fathers, and closer relationships with their mothers, than straight men. Whether this phenomenon is a cause of homosexuality, or whether parents behave this way in response to gender-variant traits in a child, is unclear. One researcher's Exotic Becomes Erotic theory theorizes that some children will prefer activities that are typical of the other sex and that this will make a gender-conforming child feel different from opposite-sex children, while gender-nonconforming children will feel different from children of their own sex, which may evoke physiological arousal when the child is near members of the sex which it considers as being "different", which will later be transformed into sexual arousal.

Innate bisexuality

Innate bisexuality (or predisposition to bisexuality) is a term introduced by Sigmund Freud (based on work by his associate Wilhelm Fliess) that expounds that all humans are born bisexual but through psychological development (which includes both external and internal factors) become monosexual, while the bisexuality remains in a latent state. Alfred Kinsey's studies, Sexual Behavior in the Human Male and Sexual Behavior in the Human Female, found that the majority of humans have had homosexual experiences or sensations and are bisexual. The Kinsey Reports found that approximately four percent of adult Americans were predominantly gay or lesbian for their entire lives, and approximately 10 percent were predominantly gay or lesbian for some portion of their lives. Some studies have disputed Kinsey's methodology and have suggested that these reports overstated the occurrence of bisexuality and homosexuality in human populations. "His figures were undermined when it was revealed that he had disproportionately interviewed homosexuals and prisoners (many sex offenders)

Malleability of homosexuality

In 1985, Fritz Klein argued that sexual orientation may change over time and is composed of various elements, both sexual and non-sexual. A psychologist from the University of Utah measured changes in sexual attractions among white, highly educated lesbians and bisexual women over a two-year period and found that changes in sexual attraction were generally small (more so in lesbians), but that their self-identification of their sexualities and their sexual behavior were more variable. The American Psychological Association (APA) states that homosexuality "is not changeable", and that attempts at eliminating same-sex attractions are not effective and are potentially harmful. More generally, the APA states, "psychologists do not consider sexual orientation to be a conscious choice that can be voluntarily changed", and in 2001 United States Surgeon General David Satcher issued a report maintaining that "there is no valid scientific evidence that sexual orientation can be changed".

Homosexual behavior in animals

Homosexual sexual behavior occurs in the animal kingdom, especially in social species, particularly in marine birds and mammals, monkeys, and the great apes. Homosexual behavior has been observed among 1,500 species, and in 500 of those it is well documented. For example, male penguin couples have been documented to mate for life, build nests together, and to use a stone as a surrogate egg in nesting and brooding. In a well-publicized story from 2004, the Central Park Zoo in the United States replaced one male couple's stone with a fertile egg, which the couple then raised as their own offspring. The genetic basis of animal homosexuality has been studied in the fly Drosophila melanogaster. Here, multiple genes have been identified that can cause homosexual courtship and mating. These genes are thought to control behavior through pheromones as well as altering the structure of the animal's brains. These studies have also investigated the influence of environment on the likelihood of flies displaying homosexual behavior. Georgetown University professor Janet Mann has specifically theorized that homosexual behavior, at least in dolphins, is an evolutionary advantage that minimizes intraspecies aggression, especially among males. Studies indicating prenatal homosexuality in certain animal species have had social and political implications surrounding the gay rights debate.

First blog


This is my first posted blog though I had registered my blog account a year ago. My motivation is just simple.... Lonely. I don't feel really like that for the past 28 or 29 years so.

After 29 years of living in this world, I felt that the moment on 16.09.2007 @ 2:30am that I really lost the most priceless gift that this world has to offer me. I lost my dearest Mom on that fateful moment.

Mom was admitted in CCU ward in Ipoh General Hospital on 06.09.2007 due to fast A.F and undergone treatment for almost 10 days before her kind soul were taken by the almighty God.

She died due to Acute Coronary Syndrome with Acute Renal Failure according to the doctor.

I was so down emotionally at that moment but I managed to calm myself in front of my brother and made further preparation for her funeral rites.

Deep down inside my throat, I wanted to shout and really cry myself out loud to the world and show to the world how much I’m gonna miss my Mom forever. As a elder son of my Mom, I’ve lived the past 29 years of my life with her kind and loving grace.

Nothing in this world can replace the lost of my Mom. That’s a promise. No matter what my Mom will be always living and breathing in the most sacred part of my Heart.

I would like to thank all my friends and relatives that had supported me morally and financially on the event. I was really busy on that day doing the preparation for the funeral with my brother and would have missed some of you guys who attended the funeral. Sorry...

I hope that by this blog I would really share some very beautiful moments with all of you there.

thanks & regards

I'm a contra character basically. Non lateral thinking and mostly unconventional idiom banging around my brains. I can be very polite and humble on one moment but suddenly I can also be intolerably vulgar. There are always both sides of coin! If there's black then it's direct opposite white co-exist too. There is no gray shades in life. Life is full of extremes. I'm used to be an intelligent person by birth but as many intelligent people in this world I'm also one of those whose intelligent is ruined by education. :) I always strive hard to be original at any cause and willing to sacrifice anything just to be my own self. And that's where came in this unstoppable madness and mediocrity which haunts and creates panic in most people whom I know and love so much. God have mercy on them! Astrologically speaking I'm supposed to live my life till the end of year 2038! May I live to the fullest of my ability and hopefully I could find a female( yes!! female) companion by the end of my life as per my mom's wish.
