The Ordinary People On Merdeka Day
How well do you know Malaysia? Looking back, it has been 60 years since the Nation achieved her independence. But, did the people then understand what Merdeka meant? The country had been under the British's administration for too long. How did the different ethnic groups see the change of the political scene in Malaya then? Were there much talks or discussions among the people? Was the subject matter discussed in schools? Many more questions unanswered. Let's find out more from an academician who had gone through that era - Tan Sri Khoo Kay Kim, Professor of Malaysian History, University of Malaysia. Come and join us as Prof. Khoo discusses how merdeka had (or hadn't) affected our day-to-day lives - the life of the ordinary Malaysian.
