“Segambut is symbolic for Malaysia. This is a crucial seat. When you go out to vote, remember, the nation is looking at you Segambut voters.”
The intriguing claim sets Satya off on a journey of Segambut memories – that left strong imprints, and some dark shadows.
In the Disco era, Satya’s father built his ideal house in Kampung Sungai Jerneh, a thriving commune along Segambut’s grandest landmark, its railway line. Its settlers bonded through politics, pop culture, “river meetings” and the lure of curry and wajik.
As such hamlets morphed into a skyscraper township, the railway line became an obscure prop. Waterfalls and rivers vanished or went past teh tarik shade to become the grey of threatening skies on a bad monsoon day. True-blue natives slowly compromised, relocated, scattered.
Will Malaysia Baru really care?
The book is relatable to both the older and the younger generation alike. The telling of how interracial harmony existed in the early years of Malaysian independence would make many who lived in that era reminisce the good old days. As for the millennials, the book would serve as an eye opener as to how things were back then considering the sorry state of racial harmony in Malaysia today.
