VR Nathan: Community Servant Extraordinary (VR's Legacy)

by Bala Baskaran ; Said Abdullah ; Arun Senkuttuvan

In conveying his condolences to VR Nathan’s wife, Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong said that “as chairman of Hindu Endowments Board, VR Nathan had served the Indian community with distinction and unwavering commitment”. Lee also said that VR “had done much for inter-religious harmony in Singapore”. Soon after, Zainul Abidin Rasheed, then Senior Minister of State for Foreign Affairs, said in Parliament that he was “very amazed” when he saw at VR’s funeral leaders of different faiths paying their last respects and offering prayers. That perhaps is the ultimate tribute any Singaporean of faith could hope for. This is the story of what made an unemployed immigrant from India with little education transform into an ideal Singaporean — successful in his career, yet caring for fellow citizens.
