Inspiration Of A Nation: Tribute To 25 Singaporean South Asians by Alfred S V Dass

This book pays tribute to 25 Singaporean South Asians who pioneered and excelled in their respective fields from 1950 to 2015. It is meant to be a 'quick take' on 25 Singaporean South Asian personalities, across a broad spectrum of professions and activities, who believed in the value and virtue of service to the community and gave the best of themselves.They had a sense of mission in their professions, dedicated to what they were doing and fostered a sense of community and nation. Many of them laid foundations that triggered the transformation of the island, including sportspeople whose records have stood the test of time. They were a people of their time whose work many may not know but which we hope will inspire others. This book is timely, for those who want to get a snapshot appreciation of the contributions of Singaporean South Asians.
