The passing of Dr Lim Hock Siew

Filed under: Uncategorized — hkboh @ 5:17 pm

Dear Editor,   

I am saddened to read the news of the passing of Dr Lim Hock Siew. Nevertheless, I am glad that the Straits Times carried a decent report of his demise,  “Barisan Socialis leader dies” (ST 6 June), which would at least remind Singaporeans of pioneer political leaders who had fought for Singapore’s independence and argued for a different political vision.
As a young lad in the 1960s, I first heard about Dr. Lim from my father who spoke highly of him and his political conviction. My father used to share a stall with Dr Lim’s dad, selling fish at the old Tekka Market. Like most people working in the market, my dad did not have the opportunity to attend school. But he was impressed with Dr Lim’s academic progress and achievement. More than that, my dad respected Dr Lim for his political conviction and his genuine care for the poor, for example, seen in the low-cost medical treatment that he gave to those who consulted him in his clinic at Balestier Road. Needless to say, like many poor, and usually less-educated people, my dad and mum went to his clinic whenever they needed medical care.
It is a tragedy that he had to be detained in prison without trial for almost 20 years. One day, I hope, his side of the story will be given a fairer hearing, and a respected academic will write a properly researched book of the contribution of political leaders like him. It speaks volume of his character that in spite of his incarceration, he kept his conviction and stood his grounds; qualities which people who aspire to political office should have. One may disagree with his political ideology, but he will be respected by those who know him as a politician who loved his country and cared deeply for the cause of the poor.

.. ‘Dead’ boy sits up in coffin, asks for water and dies again in Brazil

By ANI | ANI – Thu, Jun 7, 2012.. .

Melbourne, June 7 (ANI): A two-year-old Brazilian boy, who was declared dead, sat up in his coffin and asked for water before laying back down again lifeless. According to Website ORM, Kelvin Santos stopped breathing during treatment for pneumonia at a hospital in Belem, northern Brazil, reported. The boy was declared dead at 7.40pm on Friday and his body was handed over to his family in a plastic bag. The child’s devastated family took him home where grieving relatives held a wake throughout the night as the boy’s body laid in an open coffin. But just an hour before his funeral was to take place on Saturday, the boy apparently sat up in his coffin and said asked his father for water. “Daddy, can I have some water,” the child said. “Everybody started to scream, we couldn’t believe our eyes. Then we thought a miracle had taken place and our boy had come back to life,” the boy’s father, Antonio Santos said. “Then Kelvin just laid back down, the way he was. We couldn’t wake him. He was dead again….. Mr Santos rushed his son back to the Aberlardo Santos hospital in Belem,where the doctors reexamined the boy and confirmed that he had no signs of life. “They assured me that he really was dead and gave me no explanation for what we had just seen and heard,” Santos said. The boy’s family decided to delay the funeral for an hour hoping that he would wake up again, but ended up burying him at 5 pm the same day in a local cemetery. Santos, who is convinced that his son was victim of medical malpractice, has now registered a complaint with the police who have launched an investigation. “Fifteen minutes after rushing him away for resuscitation, they came and told me he was dead and handed me his body. Perhaps they didn’t examine him properly. Dead people don’t just wake up and talk. I’m determined to find out the truth,” Santos said. (ANI) ..
