Tribute Yasmin Ahmad

Mukhsin / Yasmin Ahmad

Mukhsin is a boy, Orked, a girl, and there comes a point in their lives when this becomes important. Orked comes from a strong family and is consequently not afraid to play with boys.When she meets Mukhsin, the two soon become the best of friends. He constructs a second seat on his bike and before long they are pedaling down the avenues and out into the meadows to fly kites. When evening comes around they are wont to sit on the branch of a tree, dreaming. Orked finds it strange when, at times like these, Mukhsin gently brushes her arm. Friendships can change.When the boy expresses his feelings for her, Orked brusquely rebuffs him. Coming from her mouth, the word “no” seems particularly harsh – especially when it means never.
