He captured this subject when he was camping at one of the
southern island of Singapore. In this painting he was actually
amazed with this medium built bird called Kingfisher. Kingfisher
is known for its beautiful features, colourful feathers, fast
flyers, very sharp eyes and a good hunter. Kingfisher has
a strong determination, it never gives up to wait and strike
efficiently upon seeing its target.
Looking at this, it reflects strongly to the rat racing lifestyle
that never stop to race. The kingfisher is a close reference
to the young entrepreneur. Who enjoy good life and very serious
in making a big deal and be successful in a very short time.
They are adventurous, risk taker and creative. Unaware to
many, these strong features of determinations has created
many successful young people. They hold most of major post
in the organisation, managing the countries and invention
What Jalal wanted to show is that people has to expect a
lot of drastic changes in this current world. The choice seems
limited. People must try their best to adapt with the changes.
To keep going on, people must at least possess the quality
of the Kingfisher. Beautiful, Fast, Sharp, Strong Endurance,
Skilful and Decisive. If not you will just lag behind and
never enjoy the benefits of The Early Bird.
