    Interesting thought to ponder upon. Reading this article forced me to think what independent Malaysia really means. I tried to imagine what it would be like to be colonised by foreign country. But imagination and reality seldom match. I can only use my grandmother's stories as the background picture. Her generation, i believe, can truely appreciate independence. Those who fought the communist and those went through the Konfrantasi. Our generation can only say thank you to those during theae period.

    The real significance of Merdeka was lost upon the youth because in came UMNO introducing Corruption to the core for 60 years. A pity.

    Who the F said the youth in Malaysia don't love their country? Hello? I'm one of the youth too, and I will love my country til the day I die. You should keep your opinion to yourself.

    Do not narrow the meaning of Merdeka to Your merdeka. The Merdeka of youth is also our Merdeka.

    The younger generation dont know the real value of Merdeka as the UMNO /BN and shame to MCA and MIC accomplice has twisted the whole history with racist thoughts which will take another three generations to put right with the actual historical facts.
