He will be missed

I AM saddened by the demise of Datuk Ahmad A. Talib. In 1994, my employer, Tenaga Nasional, sent me to New Straits Times as a retirement treat, to acquire writing skills. I met this very articulate and fearless journalist who had an interesting way of saying things!

He had a column on the weekend called “Kurang Manis” that I loved reading. He was a good editor; he knew what should be in the paper and what should not. He wrote from the heart, and about ordinary people, as he wanted them to be heard. He left us on Tuesday. He will be missed.
