Why am I Attending Vigils?


Why am I Attending Vigils?

Rama Ramanathan

My purpose in this essay is to clarify my thoughts, to say at least tentatively, why I am attending the candlelight vigils — an illegal act in Malaysia. Why do I deliberately disobey the law? Why do I do it repeatedly? Why do I encourage others to do the same?
