Binu and the Great Wall

Binu and the Great Wall

Binu And The Great Wall is a wonderful myth retold in the words of Su Tong, the author of ‘Rice’.  The myth of Binu and how her tears washed away the Great Wall have been passed down through the ages. It is a tale of hardship, brutality and undying love. Su Tong’s version of the myth, brings to the reader the harshness and brutality that led to the constuction of the wall and the terrible effects it had on the common people.

The Pope died yesterday. I must be old - I remember when he became the pope. I wasn't a Catholic yet. Europe was very far away to a young impressionable teenager who was in search of ..........life, spirituality, answers. I was hungry for life. Which teenager isn't? The church was one of those places which seems to offer  some solutions...a whole new culture ..Christianity, Roman Catholicism with its stories of saints and bible study. My parish priest, Fr Maurice Surmon,  was kind to me, introduced me to books such as those written by Simone Weil and Teilhard de Chardin. Philosophies, ideas extremely foreign to me. I had no idea what life had in store for me. No mentors, no role models to follow. Hmm...it seems the same now. No matter. I have very fond memories of St Anthony's in Teluk Intan.
