Who am I?






Malaysian artist Jeganathan Ramachandram will be exhibiting his paintings in Singapore if a deal with a company to display Human Watching: A Visual Poetry on the Science of Human Watching in the island republic is successful.
The intuitive artist told Survey that the move is still under negotiation.
Human watching made its debut at Galeri Petronas in March, 2009 and was well received by both art critics and art lovers.
Fourteen portraits representing females and males born on each of the seven days in a week were put on view.
The depictions (acrylic on canvas) were based on his observations of human behaviour for the past 14 years.
Images of seven females and seven males inform viewers through symbols of their strengths and weaknesses and their relationships with other people.
Those who have seen Human Watching identified with their profiles almost immediately.
Admit it: you are curious about yourself!
Males, who were born on Sunday (bottom picture), were pleasantly surprised to discover that Jeganathan (top picture) had read them correctly: they agreed that their families are very important to them and would do everything in their power to make their wives and children happy.
You would also perceive that they excel in public service.
Females, who were born on Monday (middle picture), are said to be keen observers of life and it would appear that the publishing industry was created for them.
Critics dismiss Jeganathan's work as "mumbo-jumbo": accusing him of being strongly influenced by astrology and numerology, among others.
What it all boils down to is little or no understanding of his take on human behaviour.
"My work is based purely on human watching -- there is a biological pattern which decides one's abilities," he told journalist Jehan Mohd (Learning Curve March 22, 2009).
He believes that his conclusions would help people understand themselves and their children better.
You would be surprised to learn that you could have been a great singer if only your talent had been discovered and nurtured when you were a child.
Please allow your imagination to roam freely.
The artist is currently working on a book based on his research and, hopefully, that will be a useful guide for parents.
"The book will help parents identify innate characteristics and abilities their children have from young and help them develop their offspring towards their full potential," he told Jehan.
"People CAN be what they want to be," he says.
NOTE: Survey will be talking to Jeganathan soon.

I remember Jeganathan when he was with the NSTP as an artist. He has a skill and talent that will take him far. His art works displayed on this blog are fascinating to the eye. Not only can one not ignore them, but one is compelled to look closely at the breathtaking details. I wish Jega much success in his projects. It may not be long before he becomes a world-renowned personality.

An evening with Gary Thanasan

Popular businessman Dato' Gary Thanasan held a social gathering in celebration of Diwali at his residence in Petaling Jaya yesterday.

The above picture shows Gary, who is holding his daughter, with Prestige magazine editor Saleha Ali and journalists Yani (Bernama), Suraya (Life & Times editor) and Meena (Life & Times).


Miss Malaysia (Universe) 1990 and Mrs Malaysia (World) 2004 Dato' Anna Lim came with her husband Dato' Jeffrey Lim and their two children.

The friendly pair sportingly posed for a picture.


Yani baked Gary, a former radio and TV show host, a classic dessert -- buttery rich Pineapple Upside Down Cake -- which brought back many childhood memories.

She is pictured here with Meena, who came to the party in her usual Bollywood style.

It was really a nice evening!

Thank you Gary!

Giving New Year resolutions another chance

In the spirit of New Year resolutions doing the rounds, I have a story to share. My friend Rabiaa Dani gave up making resolutions a long time ago. She found it hard to keep her promises made at the start of each year. The issue had given her a lot of grief over the years. Frustration ensued when her New Year resolutions went out of the window, often culminating with her beating herself up.

The first few days were good but she would falter after the first week. She felt bad about her lack of willpower and would feel depressed and unworthy of respect or value. So she decided that she would no longer make them. However, unknown to her, she would review this decision at the end of 2017.

What happened? Rabiaa and her husband attended a talk by Ustaz Dato' Badli Shah bin Alauddin at Komplex Darul Baraqah in Manjoi, Ipoh, Perak on December 28, 2017. The Ustaz from Pahang is one Rabiaa's favourite preachers and she hardly misses his religious talks on television. This was the first ti…
