This month, we'll be reading the critically acclaimed classic, Animal Farm by George Orwell. Though written in 1946, it transcends its publication date, being especially relevant not just for its many political aspects that seem to always suit the world somewhere, but for another reason. 

Animal Farm is a superb story, set at Manor Farm. One night, all the animals gather together to listen to what the well-respected Middle White Board, Old Major, has to say. He tells the animals about his dreams of Animalism and how he wants a farm without Mr Jones, the mean and careless farmer. Old Major passes away three days later, fuelling the other Animal's desire to put Old Major's dream into reality. After careful planning and preparation, they literally kick out Mr Jones and his wife, and begin to run the farm. The pigs, especially Snowball and Napoleon, assume leadership, and begin thinking about how to improve the farm (renamed by the animals as Animal Farm). 

This will be a very interesting book especially for our own current setting in Malaysia :) 

Happy reading!

    Salam and hello to all,Let us give a big hand (personally, I give a bow) to the Prasasti Team especially to lonneke and uculer for working so hard and sacrifising so much just to make sure you get a copy of FREE e-magazine.

Wait, let's not forget that both of them have day job and other personal commitments and family.Now, tell me is there any other reasons for ...

  • A Very Sad Day

    Yesterday (12/03/08) was a very sad day for us. Due to some technical errors and mistakes in testing a new feature in Kapasitor, we accidentally crashed the poetry section. Therefore, all poetry posted from 4th March 2008 onwards were not saved into our system. However, the other sections are all ok. We got that error fixed and will not let this thing happen again in the future. On behalf of the team, I apologize for the mistakes. Really, it’s not something easy for us to accept this. Thanks for those ...
