    Abstract

    MALAYSIA, and indeed the world, witnessed yet another unique feature of Malaysian society when its citizens took part in the unique Malaysianstyle open house in conjunction with Deepavali. In a couple of days, this will be repeated again. This time, it will be to celebrate EidulFitri, or Hari Raya Puasa. Reportedly, an increasing number of nonMuslims have been observing the fast too. As one of them re marked, if we could have a kongsi raya, why not a kongsi puasa. Through the tribulations of puasa, one will appreciate Hari Raya even better. Soon after that will be Hari Raya Haji, Christmas, New Year and Chinese New Year. For all of these festivities, Malaysians will display a spirit of togetherness, characteristic of a nascent Bangsa Malaysia.
