A Greatest Man, A Greatest politician and founding father of Singapore, A man who changed his country form nothing to everything, has gone for good today. Ever since the day I got to know him and as a long living Singapore resident, I have seen what he has done to this country and to his fellow citizens with my own eyes. He bought this country from a third word slum to thriving metropolis. I always wonder If this greatest leader has been born in our country and did what he did to Singapore how wonderful our country would have been today. Our politicians can at lease learn a lesson or two from this great man.
As a Sri Lankan and a long time residing person in Singapore . Good bye Mr.Prime minister and may you rest in peace.
‘I have spent my life, so much of it, building up this country. There’s nothing more that I need to do. At the end of the day, what have I got? A successful Singapore. What have I given up? My life.’
Prime Minister Lee Kuan Yew
1923 – 2015
