SEREMBAN Jaya assemblyman P. Guna, who received a Diploma in Lanjutan Kemahiran Malaysia (DLKM) at the age of 64, has vowed to pursue a bachelor’s degree next, Makkal Osai reported.

Guna said his dream finally came true when he earned the Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) diploma in operation and administration of social work.

He said the diploma gave him added motivation to continue his work and to pursue a degree in the field.

> The daily also reported that the excessive alcohol intake by a man in Tamil Nadu, India, drove his teenage daughter to end her life. She wanted her father to quit alcohol completely.

His drinking habit had led to constant fights among family members at home.

The girl recently completed her Grade 10 (SPM-level) exams and scored 410 points, which would give her a good chance to continue with higher education.
