Edmund Burke said, “All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.” Some 25 years ago I made a decision to be counted amongst the good men and in many small ways attempted to make this world a better place for those around me. Currently I am involved in several NGOs that provide services to those infected and affected by HIV, food and environmental issues, education and political reformation. I maintain a blog called "Towards A New Malaysia" - ideas and thoughts about nation-building at www.newmalaysia.org.
