  • Disenchanted by the lack of official recognition and inadequate funding of the arts in Malaysia, Huzir relocated to Singapore a few years ago – and now that he’s married the beautiful and talented actress, Claire Wong (ironically, another Malaysian-born cultural émigré), it would appear that Malaysia’s loss has been Singapore’s gain.
  • Main character Chinese Malaysian physicist trained at USA university & research centreReturn to Malaysia to attend to grandmotherCaught in dead end jobWork under the government in agricultural scienceUsing gamma rays to zap cocoa beans, rice, prawns for efficient growth.
  • She said,“My brain is big and my life is little, and I wanted a better fit between the two” 1. Her motivation was to find a better job where she can apply her expertise. 2. To also fulfill her family’s expectations by taking over the family’s business in a shop house Hence, agreeing to General Zulkifli job offeras she felt that the offer was once in a lifetime It also shows the ambitious dr. Yuenwith big dreams of being a precise and eloquent physicistwho dreams of going beyond the arena of agriculture sciences
  • For this obstacle, it will be addressed and elaborated in the later slides and quiz.
  • Background info:Chief Physicist Research background radiation in Malaysia A laid back job that allows him to go for fishing with with his son during the weekendsAbsurd to use his own skull for magnetic field experimentations Negligent for the failure of atomic attempt Foolish to use his own skull to test the penetration of “alpha-beta-gamma” X-rays;
  • Basically he wants to lead an easy life while having the “skills and knowledge” to impress the General and his colleagues without getting things right
  • Obstructed by his ownIncompetence. Inability to comprehend situations or even conversations
  • A fellow atomic scientist who is trying to burrow out of an inferiority complex born of the factthat he took all three of his degrees from Delhi Polytechnic. (That is the institution that builds bombs for Pakistan which he ruefully admits)
  • Motivation: To prove himself, to prove his academic qualifications to othersTo break out of social stigma
  • Wants: To earn respect from the other races Recognition of achievements Stop taking the blame for other’s mistakes
  • Motivation:His status and his self-acclaimed likeness of thoughts and desire to be Napoleon made him: Self-important Irritatingly solemn and grand (pg.32)Obstacles: “I want to get to the bottom of this matter. Until the bottom is reached, the top cannot be happy” This portrays the pressure he receives from his superiors and the urgency to resolve the problems faced as soon as possible.
  • In the Sunway University College’s production of Atomic Jaya, the minister spoke in a lazy drawl but his lines denying the presence of the atomic bomb embodied all that is contemporary about our local political scene, making his character unforgettable.
  • Bring some context into this from “jeanne’s debate handout” A satirical twist from, “Ask not what your country can do for you; ask what you can do for your country.” – John F Kennedy (To be revealed only at quiz)
  • China man stereotypes - Teng Producing funny and fake stuff- Earn profits through contrabands, black market, and other forms of illegal tradingIssues:Malaysia's economy plunge after 1997(reemphasis of Malaysia's economy plunge blamed on George Soros) Lack of security, including monetary counterfeits(Case : 2009)Fake Malaysian ringgit banknotes worth 7.5 million Baht, a shotgun and two cap guns were seized from a retired army official's house in Lop Buri's Chai Badan District, police said yesterday. Thebatch of colour-photocopied banknotes was the largest of its kind found in Thailand.(Case: 2008)in 2008 there is a news about many Malaysia Bank in Gombak make a police report about a guy who printed fake money put them in Bank cash deposit machine and withdraw it from the same bank ATM.Read more: http://lunaticg.blogspot.com/2011/11/malaysia-fake-notes.html#ixzz1pHHjZdExDubious Business Claimed To be Honest Business: Copy-righted VCDs Printing plate for ten dollar bill “Prices all before Soros prices” – reemphasis of Malaysia's economy plunge blamed on George Soros Hewlett-Packard
  • To meet Dr. Mary Yuen, most likely called up by the General to assist in gathering contacts for Uranium suppliesHowever, he was clearly not told what Uranium is from his assert, “Uranium is the alien from planet Uranus!”Malaysia’s has ineffective security anddrug tests as they do not have urine test for drugs in Seremban, a town in southwestern Malaysia

Desperation driven by poverty. Bad security in Russia laboratory that invites burglary
  • These characters and events are based on actual happenings and political figures which we will be exploring in the next section.
  • In 1953, Tenzing Norgay and Edmund Hillary became the first humans to successfully climb to the peak of Mount Everest, the tallest mountain in the world. In the 50 years since Norgay and Hillary first climbed the mountain, more than 5,000 people have attempted to repeat their feat with 1,600 successes. And we still consider it a matter of national pride to put one of our own on the peak.
  • He don’t think that the US government should interfere and start complaining about how much they control them. He continued by saying how loyal Malaysians are. “ First they want to attack our currency, make us poor. Now they want to tell us what to do.” “They think they can tell the Malaysian don’t have the bomb. They think they can tell the Pakistan don’t have the bomb. Why don’t they listen when we tell them don’t have the bomb? The Malaysian people are loyal….. (…) They will listen to the wisdom of their leaders and not these foreign meddlers.”

  • Bumiputra means “sons of the soil” and was seen as a necessary policy for Malays who were supposedly disadvantaged by the heavy presence of immigrants in the Malay Archipelago during colonial rule.2. While Malaysia held on to Sarawak and Sabah, they lost Singapore.The island state was expelled in 1965 after a heated ideological conflict between the state's government and the federal Kuala Lumpur government. Singapore objected to the new economic policy which favors “Bumiputra” that would most likely result racial discrimination in favour of the native Malays.
  • 1. The government no longer impose any restrictions on minority races2. People are free to practice their own culture, religion and education3. “To go beyond race-based politics, we need to appeal to the Malays, Chinese and the Indians”“If you continue to harp and support this racial equation, you will never be able to overcome racial divisions”.However, it will take a long time for the nation to overcome these racial divisions from a country that used to be very racially conscious…maybe even till now…The legacy of bumiputra affects Malaysia today. The government does not impose any restrictions on minority races, who are free to practice their own culture, religion and education. Nevertheless, the races that make up its multicultural population remain poles apart. They have separate friends and lead separate social lives. Most Chinese and Indians send their children to Mandarin and Tamil language schools while the Malays attend national institutions. Former deputy prime minister Anwar Ibrahim now proposes to reform the political landscape to promote national harmony. "We need to appeal to the Malays, Chinese and the Indians and the rest that we need to go beyond race-based politics,” he said. “If you continue to harp and support this racial equation, you will never be able to overcome racial divisions”.(http://nebuchadnezzarwoollyd.blogspot.com/2007/08/malaysia-turns-50-today-mostly.html)

  • Debate topic is “Singapore should build an atomic bomb” The reaseon for this topic chosen is because the whole play is all about what happens when Malaysia decides to buld an atomic bomb? Ok so like all debates have, we will have two teams,Prposition and opposition. each team consists of 3 speakers. And a panel of adjudicators. The first speaker from proposition will bgin the debate followed by the first speaker from opposition. This pattern maintained for the second and thrid speaker. Each speak speaks for a set time of ____ minutes with 3 warning bells. First bell to tell you that you are left with _____ minutesSecond bell for ou to sum up and finish.Third bell to end no matter whether you conclude or not. We had already placed you into these three groups so can all of you get into your group now.

  • Pg 35 Americans know about the making of the bomb and warned Malaysia. “ We have the might, and we have the right, and we will not hesitate to fight for the right to our might, and our might alone. “ “We want to remind the people of Malaysia of the words of a great Aemerican president, who said, “ Ask not what your country can do for you; rather ask what our country can do to your country. Over here they try to show their power and remind Malaysia about the hierarchy of status.

  • Pg 31 In the play, Yuen tell the audience about a quote from somebody
  • J.Robert Oppenheimer
  • J.Robert Oppenheimer
  • Yuen tell the audience of a quote that American physicist J.Robert Oppenheimer who was in charge of the Manhattan Project during WW2, the American effort to build the bomb when he saw the fireball and the mushroom cloud from the first test rising above the New Mexico desert,.“I am become death, the eater of worlds” A world is a big thing to eat. I decided to stick with being Mary Yuen, the eater of popiah. After observing the Trinity nuclear test, J Robert Oppenheimer said: We knew the world would not be the same. A few people laughed, a few people cried, most people were silent. I remembered the line from the Hindu scripture, the Bhagavad-Gita. Vishnu is trying to persuade the Prince that he should do his duty and to impress him takes on his multi-armed form and says, "Now, I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds." I suppose we all thought that one way or another.The real sentence from Bhagavad-Gita is "Behold! For I am become Shiva, Shatterer of Worlds!”The line is spoken to Arjuna by Krishna, who is revered in Hindu traditions as one of the major incarnations of Vishnu;
  • The quote is indeed from the BhagavadGita ("Song of the lord"). Some suggest it's a misquote, which would explain the peculiar grammar; but "am become" is not an error but a (poetic) archaism Oppenheimer was proficient in sanskrit he read the original text, and the translation is his own; The Powerful God:Shiva is 'shakti' or power, Shiva is the destroyer, the most powerful god of the Hindu pantheon and one of the godheads in the Hindu Trinity. Known by many names - Mahadeva, Mahayogi, Pashupati, Nataraja, Bhairava, Vishwanath, Bhava, BholeNath - Lord Shiva is perhaps the most complex of Hindu deities. Hindus recognize this by putting his shrine in the temple separate from those of other deities.Shiva As Phallic Symbol:Shiva, in temples is usually found as a phallic symbol of the 'linga', which represents the energies necessary for life on both the microcosmic and the macrocosmic levels, that is, the world in which we live and the world which constitutes the whole of the universe. In a Shaivite temple, the 'linga' is placed in the center underneath the spire, where it symbolizes the naval of the earth.A Different Deity:The actual image of Shiva is also distinct from other deities: his hair piled high on the top of his head, with a crescent tucked into it and the river Ganges tumbling from his hairs. Around his neck is a coiled serpent representing Kundalini or the spiritual energy within life. He holds a trident in his left hand in which is bound the 'damroo' (small leather drum). He sits on a tiger skin and on his right is a water pot. He wears the 'Rudraksha' beads and his whole body is smeared with ash.The Destructive Force:Shiva is believed to be at the core of the centrifugal force of the universe, because of his responsibility for death and destruction. Unlike the godhead Brahma, the Creator, or Vishnu, the Preserver, Shiva is the dissolving force in life. But Shiva dissolves in order to create, since death is the medium for rebirth into a new life. So the opposites of life and death and creation and destruction both reside in his character.The Most Fascinating of Gods:He is also often portrayed as the supreme ascetic with a passive and composed disposition. Sometimes he is depicted riding a bull called Nandi decked in garlands. Although a very complicated deity, Shiva is one of the most fascinating of Hindu gods.The God Who's Always High!:Since Shiva is regarded as a mighty destructive power, to numb his negative potentials he is fed with opium and is also termed as 'Bhole Shankar', one who is oblivious of the world. Therefore, on MahaShivratri, the night of Shiva worship, devotees, especially the menfolk, prepare an intoxicating drink called 'Thandai' (made from cannabis, almonds, and milk) sing songs in praise of the Lord and dance to the rhythm of the drums.
  • Pg 31Yuen tell the audience how much she don’t want to take part in the project anymore. Yuen do not want to be in the project anymore and just want to stick with something small.
  • Conscience gets the better of her and she decides to sabotage the bomb so that it won’t explode“The act of observation changes that which is being observed, said Heisenberg”While the play itself is a beautiful piece of political satire, it is not quite without its own shortcomings. For example, Sulaiman teases us with Werner Heisenberg’s famous Uncertainty Principle as a way of judging Dr.Yuen’s account, though he simply dangles it there without ever turning it into an effective dramatic device.In Heisenberg’s uncertainty principle. If you want to determine the position and the momentum of an electron, you have a problem. You can’t. and the reason is because once you get a reading on the position, and the momentum changes. Once you get a reading on the momentum, you can’t fix the position. THE ACT OF OBSERBATION CHANGES THAT WHICH IS BEING OBSERVED> The fact that yuen noticed those things happening means something else happened instead. This is the point where her point of view starts getting questionable. “Second rule of storytelling: you can never be too obvious. So here hoes. I did it. I sabotaged the device.”With this she inform the audience she is going to sabotage the whole project“One more time: I made sure it wouldn't work.”Yuen tells the audience how and why she want to make sure it wouldn’t work. “I’m not very trustworthy, you know. I make no guarantees of… I’m a little mixed up. Nonetheless.”“How to sabotage an atomic bomb when you are the only person who really knows what they are doing.” From this she starts to tell the audience the whole plan of her sabotage, step by step.
  • The fact that yuen noticed those things happening means something else happened instead. This is the point where her point of view starts getting questionable. This phenomenon is called the Heisenberg uncertainty principle. It states the we cannot precisely know both the position of a particle and its momentum (mass times velocity). Its easy to consider this example. Imagine a dark room with a particle in it. In order to find it, we have to turn on a flashlight. When the flashlight hits the particle, we will for an instant know the position but the photons in the light will hit the particle changing its velocity, so we can only know one aspect of a particles behavior with certainty at a given time. This is why we always refer to electrons existing in a probability cloud, since we know where they are likely to be, but aren't sure of an exact position.
  • Because Americans know what they are doing.Mary Yuen role playing.
