S A Vanar (1951-2021)
My bro Karim n l met Vanar in 1963 when we entered VI. It so happens that he was also our neighbour up the road. He was always smiling n cheerful, n a good friend. I remember that we tied for the English Language prize in Form 4, n l offered to concede as l had won the prize for Malay. There was always great camaderie amongst our friends, regardless of race n religion.
And so 11 years ago, l initiated a get together to celebrate 40 years since we left school, it was a great get together n we had 69 attendees. Resulting from that event, we decided to organise annual reunions n also have a chat group. Vanar was an active contributor to our chatgroup, n one of his last posting was a quote from Rabindranath Tagore, which l would like to share with all of you by posting it as my picture.
Rest in peace, my dear friend.
