Fear of trying

Although Erica Jong’s ‘Fear of Flying’, is not about aeroplanes, vertigo nor altitude sickness, the author did manage to ‘liberate’ many women. We could do with a novel, ‘Fear of Trying’ for the emancipation of Malay minds. Our approach to life, is only a question of attitude and in Malaysia, Malays need some mental liberation to take charge of their lives. The days of Umno being the nanny, are over.
