Lessons of the Past, Learnings for the Future

We're set to celebrate 66 years of Merdeka on Thursday, and as the nation commemorates, we too want to remember the historic occasion, by paying tribute to our Bapa Merdeka, Tunku Abdul Rahman Putra Al-Haj, one of the prime architects of our Federal Constitution, and our Prime Minister from 1957 until September 1970, who was instrumental in gaining Malaya's freedom and sovereignty without war or bloodshed. Joining us to do this are two trustees from Yayasan Tunku Abdul Rahman (YTAR),  Datin Sri Sharifah Menyalara Hussein (CEO and Founding Director of M&C Saatchi Malaysia) and Emeritus Professor Datuk Dr Hj Shad Saleem Faruqi (Holder of the Tunku Abdul Rahman Chair, University of Malaya). While we reminisce about the past and our country's journey to independence, we also look forward to the future, and wonder what it holds for our nation.
