Launch Marriage and Mutton Curry in Georgetown Literary Festival, Penang on 24 November 2018
Visit by Dr. Shan, Malaysian Writer
It was a great honour to host in our school the famous Malaysian poet and writer, Dr M. Shanmughalingam on June 20th.
The 4ième and 3 ième enjoyed the dramatized readings of his witty poems and short stories. Dr M. Shanmughalingam has an impressive biography, M.A(Harvard), D. PHIL( Oxford) among many other references.
He has published many poems and short stories, each of them giving an insight into Malaysian culture and society.
When asked by one of our students what the major themes of his writings were , he answered: ‘injustice, I tried to denounce all kinds of injustice in my writings, especially towards women.”
It was indeed a very inspiring and interesting performance for students and teachers.
We hope to see you again, Dr Shan!
