The following lines (around line 15) caught my attention:
Such a great man, why did he die?
One of the old guards,
Faded into obscurity,
Those who cared, only a minority.
Kudos to Chong Yong for writing the poem, and for the youthful idealisms expressed.
In response to those lines, I'd like to tell young Chong Yong that all men and women, great or otherwise, die eventually. Immortality exists only in fiction (so far). Death is the equaliser, isn't it. The difference is in how we have lived our lives.
Did Rajaratnam fade into obscurity? Hardly. He's left a legacy. How many people could have said to have done that when their time is up?
S. Rajaratnam lives on, in words and spirit, my young Padawan!
