A Chat with International Humanitarian Tan Sri Dr. Jemilah Mahmood

It’s always intimidating to be in the presence of an internationally- accomplished and outstanding human being whose list of achievements would fill several chapters of a book, and then some. But Tan Sri Dr. Jemilah Mahmood, , founder of MERCY Malaysia, recipient of Bahrain’s prestigious Isa Award for Services to Humanity in 2013 and now head of the World Humanitarian Summit Secretariat at the United Nations in New York, exudes such warmth and charisma that you cannot help but relax in her company. This writer has had the opportunity to meet with Tan Sri Dr. Jemilah – or Dr. Jim, as she insists – several times before this interview and at each meeting, was captivated by her candour and willingness to share ideas and experience.

In March 2015, as part of our Oral History initiative, the Perdana Leadership Foundation had a conversation with Tan Sri Dato’ Utama Nor Mohamed Yakcop, the former Minister of Finance II for Malaysia and Special Economic Adviser to the Prime Minister who is now the Deputy Chairman of Khazanah Nasional and Chairman of Khazanah Research Institute. During the conversation, Tan Sri touched on his career in banking and in government, and highlighted in particular the 1997–98 crisis during which he worked very closely to the Prime Minister of Malaysia, Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad, to construct and apply a very unique solution to the crisis. The interviewer for the conversation was Professor Dr. Mohd Shahwahid Hj Othman, Dean of the Faculty of Economics, Universiti Putra Malaysia.

Derek Bolin salvaged history in the living room of his Los Angeles apartment, digitizing dozens of reels of audio recordings of important — and rarely heard — speeches given at UCLA during the political and social unrest of the 1960s.


Bolin, 44, who recently graduated from the school with a bachelor’s degree in mass communications, has preserved more than 300 speeches, including by British royalty, Ethiopian leaders and American entertainers such as Joan Rivers and Jane Fonda.

Celebrating Merdeka With An Eye On The Future

I BELONG to the Merdeka generation in the sense that we closely watched Tunku Abdul Rahman lead us to independence from the British. We helped our political leaders to develop our country in both the government and the private sectors, to progress and benefit all our people, regardless of race and religion, for most of the time.

I well recall the pride, patriotism and great promise that my generation shared as Malaysians on Aug 31, 1957.
