JustRunLah!: We understand you have just completed the filming of “Regardless of Race”, adocumentary on issues of race in Singapore which will be telecast on Monday, 15 Aug on Channel News Asia. What was the experience like for you?
Dr Janil Puthucheary: Helping CNA make this documentary was very interesting and enjoyable. One of the most memorable pieces was the conversation with 9 year old students from Townsville Primary. If they can have a meaningful, moderate conversation about race in a respectful way, surely the rest of us can follow their example.
