Renga Would Have Turned 100

That's short for Renganaden Seeneevassen. He was a lawyer, politician and our country's first Minister of Education. He would have turned 100 on April 11 last. He died way too soon on June 6th 1958 at the age of 48. Although I never got the honour to meet him, his name popped-up in conversations grown-ups would have in the 1970s.

If you want to find more about this great man you can visit his official website. You may also read the piece SKJ wrote the day he passed away.
