the word KATAMINDA (hmm… or is it just a syllable) is a combination of a verb and a noun, mainly of ‘kata’ which is a Malay word that literally means say and ‘minda’ which i believe many of us would be able to guess, yep! the word mind thus, combines together would means mind’s say (sounded weird though). maybe it is better written as…opinion? hmm… i don’t think that opinion defines it either… and thinking back… mind’s say does explains it well. so okay! mind’s say it is.

mind’s say or is it says the mind? hmmm…

okay! come to think of it, i believe we could agree that ‘kataminda’ is not a word but just a syllable instead. it does not even exist in Malay as in the Malay language it actually is separated into two words, kata and minda.



i have to make this clear. what’s written here are mostly derived from my own opinion and life’s experiences, though the opinion may comes from a known fact but these opinions are a mix of my life’s experience and my frame of reference with what i’ve read or learned.

the things i wrote may quote a certain source as in to explain a particular issue or info but most of it would be of my own rambling to the best of what my mind could rationalize.

many among us have heard the expression Freedom of Speech uttered a gazillion times but like me, many among us does not have the slightest idea of what it really is.

i’m not going to write about its definition nor am i going to explains it in great depth as for that we already have the world wide web. seek it out.

i’m not a scholar to write about what does freedom of speech means but according to the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR) the rights to freedom of speech means ” the right to hold opinions without interference. Everyone shall have the right to freedom of expression “. this means that anythings said which is classified as an opinion are protected under the international human rights law. though such rights exist but do note that there are still limitation on what can be said and what’s not. do jump on the world wide web and seek this out as for me to ramble about it here would really take me ages (i guess).

having said this, i know that we all should know how to differentiate facts and opinions, do not believe everything that we read, seek out more info on a subject and by all means, have your own opinion on it as the way i see it, you, me, we all matters thus what we thinks should matters too.

– kataminda.
