Cherian George partly blames bad Feng Shui for his ousting from NTU

Cherian George partly blames bad Feng Shui for his ousting from NTU



The media academic also said NTU’s ultimate actions were inconsistent with its positive assessment of his academic performance.

By Martino Tan and Belmont Lay
May 10, 2014 Humour


Media academic and ex-Nanyang Technological University don Cherian George has finally come out with his first public statement about the tenure controversy.

For more than a year, the 48-year-old had been publicly silent about the circumstances surrounding his “forced exit” from NTU.
*
A bit of context: More than 1,000 people signed an online petition last March asking NTU to explain its decision. A denial of tenure for academics means a denial of job security. When NTU subsequently turned down an appeal by George in May 2013 against its decision not to grant him tenure, he could not remain in NTU anymore.
*
Here’s a summary on why he partly thinks it was bad fengshui which did him in:

1. A former NTU colleague told him that his furniture arrangement in his office was bad fengshui. His desk was positioned to face the window, which meant that his back was to the door.

2. Another big fengshui faux pas: His two tall bookshelves were facing him and the books were pushed deep in. This means that the multiple shelf edges are pointing towards George like many knives.

3. He think his ex-colleagues’ observations are “the most internally coherent theory about why things went wrong” between him and NTU leadership.

4. George will bring two traditional Chinese guardian lions from Guangzhou with him to Hong Kong to protect him from negative forces in future.

5. He will be starting work at Hong Kong Baptist University’s school of communication. Why Hong Kong? He hopes that “this will be made up for by the stimulation of an invigorating new environment”.
*

*
However, George’s public statement doesn’t go into detail about what really happened but what we do know is that with him moving on, NTU’s loss will be Hong Kong Baptist University’s gain.

In a Nov. 4, 2013, interview with NTU’s student newspaper, The Nanyang Chronicle, this is what George said he stood for:

Question: What motivates you to speak out against press controls in Singapore despite the negative attention you’ve received?

I think as academics, we have a greater obligation than most citizens to contribute to public debate because we are in a very privileged position.

An academic is supported by public funds to inhabit this world of ideas. There are not many professions that are given the time and resources to read, think and share ideas.

It is a great blessing to be able to do so, and with it, there is an obligation to be mindful of the responsibilities one has. Working in the world of ideas isn’t a luxury for self-indulgent purposes. It’s really to serve your society.

So that’s the big answer. As someone who was and is a journalist, and who lives and breathes journalism, this is an issue I care about. When I sense through my own direct experience, and through my research, that the media situation in Singapore could be a lot better for its citizens, there is no choice for me but to speak out on these issues.

Re: Cherian George partly blames bad Feng Shui for his ousting from NTU

At least hes learnt his lesson haha. Setting all his feng shui right in his new workplace. The 2 stone lions may not be enough though, he should get a feng shui master in to check on his furniture layout, and if he should request another office instead. Might as well start off with a good note in his new career...

Re: Cherian George partly blames bad Feng Shui for his ousting from NTU

Generally, simple feng shui is an enhancement for a layman. It wouldn't hurt much to normal people or rather it need to took a longer periods. However, if a person is in the year of back luck(example, he is wood element person or born in horse year, this year 2014 Jia Wu Wood Horse Year will be hard negative impact for him, just like the Taoist said 犯太岁,冲太岁)

During this years, any small bad fengshui will hit hard on him. As report mentioned, the back facing window which no supports, front facing open book shelf 鐮刀煞.. .... 妄自尊大,易招小人,家運事業逐漸沒落,終告失敗。

if a person is sick and weak, a cup of water can make him sneeze .

Believe in fengshui is ok, just dun too obsessed till you spent tonnes of money and disturb your normal lifestyle.
