Girl for just causes now writing own memoirs

Delivering her Acceptance Speech in English at the Confucian Private Secondary School in Kuala Lumpur, lawyer and also Malaysia' s former ambassador PG Lim recalled, inter alia, how her father, an appointed Asian 'legislator' of the colonial administration, protested against the financial discrimination against Chinese and Tamil -language schools. The 94-year-old England-born barrister also remembered fairly clearly that her father was particularly upset by the remarks frequently made by colonial officials that Chinese and Indians should 'go back' to China or India if they did not like, or refused to accept the education policy. PG Lim is now penning her autobiography for the benefit of posterity.

Community honours PG Lim's sense of justice
