Cheers for Dr. Rajakumar's good health, spirit

Last night was a memorable night because I was invited to join the 75th birthday party of Dr. M.K. Rajakumar, an ex-leader and people's intellectual of the now defunct Labour Party of Malaya (LPM) who was also detained without trial in the 1960s under the Internal Security Act (ISA). I was also honoured enough to propose a toast for his good health and good spirit on behalf of his guests. An English-language biogragraphy of Dr. Rajakumar is now in the process of being written so that his idealism, intellectual ideas and spirit of sacrifice would continue to inspire, motivate and guide many generations to come.

Ah...Dr. Rajakumar...I hadn't heard his name for so very long I thought he was, you know, gone.
Glad to hear he is very much alive.

Happy Birthday Dr. Rajakumar.
