Tan Sri Ahmad Sarji Abdul Hamid is a man on a proud mission. The former Chief Secretary to the Government has an undying passion for his boyhood idol P. Ramlee and that interest has hardly waned over the years.

As a true-blue fan, Ahmad Sarji, 61, who is Permodalan Nasional Berhad chairman, insists on sharing his devotion for his hero with as many people as possible. It would not be far from the truth to suggest that Ahmad Sarji practically has P. Ramlee flowing through his veins.
