About This Book

He lost his mother when he was two and his father when he was 15. His leg was injured during the Japanese bombardment of Singapore and doctors almost amputated it. His medical studies were halted when the Japanese ruled Singapore. Despite such daunting circumstances, Dr James Mark Jeyasebasingam Supramaniam (popularly known as Dr JMJ) prevailed to emerge at the forefront of Singapore's medical service during its nation-building phase. This book traces the inspiring life of Dr JMJ within the larger context of the evolution of Singapore, from the 1800s when his older family members arrived on its shores, to the creation of the Singaporean nation during the 1950s and 1960s, in which JMJ played a pivotal part.
