I'm a Pen

No. I'm a murder weapon. A mighty one at that. Some would say my strikes and slashes cut deeper and sharper than a finely forged Japanese Katana.

Make no mistake. I was never a murder weapon by design. A weapon is only as lethal as the person who wields it. I owe my glory and reputation to Dr.Aiyakannu Durai Murugan, who also goes by the pseudonym Dr.A.Durai. The pseudonym was a clever tribute to a famous revolutionary from Tamil Nadu during 1960-s whom subsequently became Chief Minister of the state. How I landed on the hands of Dr. A. Durai is an extravagant history worth retelling.

Some might not even lend the idea of me playing a part in the grand scheme of things. Yet, I had stood witness for key historical events that made this country what it is today. I was there when the founding fathers dotted the Merdeka Agreement on 5th August 1957 at King's House in Kuala Lumpur. The entire scene is still vivid in my memory.
