Lee Kuan Yew
LEE Kuan Yew who remained Prime Minister of Singapore for 31 years has entered the Guinness Book of Records for being the longest-serving Prime Minister elected democratically in succession for three decades.
During his long and uninterrupted innings as the Prime Minister of Singapore Lee, who occupies a unique place among the celebrities of the world, was in Delhi in 1988 on an official visit.
He had talks with the leaders of the Indian Government and signed a number of bilateral agreements, including some on trade and culture.
During his short stay Lee showed a good
deal of interest in the architectural beauty of Delhi and visited some
places of architectural interest. On one of his visit around Delhi, I
was able to meet him with this sketch of his which he was pleased to
acknowledge with an autograph on it.
