'Lost Memory Eternalised' (section 4)


Dreaming about Everything


Life in a capital-driven society comes packed with unknown possibilities as well as unforeseeable disasters.

This began with the killing of the leader of independence in 1975 by a section of the newly formed military. Consequently, the nation had to endure over 25 years of martial law. With democracy restored, the carryovers from the two subsequent martial law administrators still continue to haunt the polity. People apparently have only been left with some fragments of the 'originary dream'.
