Pak Rashid's current state of health

I have just been told that Pak Rashid Maidin has recovered considerably after being hospitalised for a while. Reportedly, although the body is weak, he can now recognise people, talk, eat and drink in his house in southern Thailand.

Despite his advanced age and twists and turns of world history, Pak Rashid never fails to remember he was born a poor boy in Kampung Gunung Mesah near Perak's Gopeng in the month and year of the Bolshevik Revolution and his "true teacher" in politics was patriotic martyr Toh Lung San @ Raifel @ Lai Lai Fook @ Li Fuk.

So sorry to hear that he had passed on last Spetember, 2006. He should at least have been allowed to be interred in Gopeng, Perak his hometown. It is also a great pity that no historian went to interview him when he was alive. At least he did manage a memoir. Now, the sole reference of this larger than life Malayan.
