I recently came across another Bukit Brown article on a small website. Everyone seems to be talking about it nowadays.
I must say that while both camps (for and against) have brought forth rational, logical and pressing (that is, I believe in what they are arguing for, to a certain extent), I think it is quite fortuitous that our Government has decided to exhume the graves for future urban development.
Because without such a move the cemetery would have never received the media attention it did – page 1 and all. All the prominent pioneers of Singapore who were interred there wouldn’t be able to attract all that attention.
It also reminds us that all things passes. Nothing is constant.
