An inconvenient fact for M Ravi’s groupies

In Uncategorized on 03/11/2016 at 7:30 am

There’s been the usual KPKBing by the anti-PAP activists and their cybernuts allies about M Ravi’s disbarment for another two years.


CJ Menon described Mr Ravi’s conduct as ‘reprehensible’ and ‘disturbing’, then asked: “Are we not going to hold a solicitor to the standards expected of him? … The whole thing may have been avoided if Mr Ravi had taken the doctor’s advice … Should we say because he has a medical condition, we punish him differently?”

And Justice Phang asked if Mr Ravi’s condition was being used as a ‘justification’.

“There is a wider public interest that cannot be ignored,” he said.

They say that it’s not fair that because of his behaviour when he was mentally ill, he’ll be out of action for four yrs since he was stopped from practising law because of his illness.

Sounds really unfair, put it this way.

But let’s face a sad fact that doesn’t help the cause of those who want an end to the PAP’s hegemony. The anti-PAP activists and the cybernuts can be just as disingenuous and economical with the truth as the PAPpists.

Why don’t anti-PAP activists and the cybernuts  tell us that in his autobiography (published before he had the relapse that got him doing whacko things that then got him into trouble) he boasted that he was not taking medicine prescribed by his doctor for bipolar disorder.

———————

The medicine prescribed for this mental illness has serious side effects and it’s a fact that people who suffer from bipolar disorder really have to be disciplined to take their medicine regularly.

Side effects

  • Nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea.
  • Trembling.
  • Increased thirst and increased need to urinate.
  • Drowsiness.

Patients often try to avoid taking medicine because of these side effects that result from taking medicine for depression and maniac behaviour: these disorders are the opposite of each other, hence the term “bipolar disorder”. The medicine work againsy each other.

PM Ravi boasted that meditation worked.

Well it didn’t did it? As the CJ pointed out, The whole thing may have been avoided if Mr Ravi had taken the doctor’s advice …

But he didn’t did he? In his book, he said he didn’t take the prescribed medicine, relying on meditation.

I’ve a friend who like me meditates. But because he suffers from mild depression, he still takes Prozac. Meditation helps those of us who suffer from high blood pressure. But I still take my SingHealth prescribed pills.

So let’s cut the BS that Ravi is blameless for his medical condition. He refused* to take his medicine and must accept the consequences of his actions, just like Amos and Mother Mary must accept the consequences of their actions.

Ravi, Mother Mary and Amos made their beds and must lie in said beds.

If Amos’s groupies want to blame anyone, they should blame Roy and New Citizen Han Hui Hui for Ravi going bananas.


*A good way to tell if Ravi again refuses to take his medicine is if he loses weight. Compare the pixs of him today with pixs of the time when he was ill. He was a lot more leaner. Another side effect of the medicine preceibed is weight gain.

  1. Not disputing that Ravi is responsible for his action but your pieces about his condition betray a lack of understanding about how people afflicted deal the condition. The medication to control the ups and downs of the condition has trade-offs. On the up, the person is capable of clarity and creativity of mind which he normally does not achieve and on the down, the person cannot even get out of bed. Often, such a person may forego medication to get the former even if it means he also gets the latter.
