52nd Merdeka celebration in Chennai
The 52nd Merdeka celebration was recently held on 25 September 2009, at the Accord Hotel, T.Nagar, Chennai. The celebration which was twice postponed due to unforseen circumstances was finally celebrated with full of Malaysian spirit. The function started around 7.30 pm with a speech given by Tn.Hj Anuar Kasman, the Consulate General of Malaysia. This was later followed by both countries national anthems i.e the ‘Negaraku’ and the ‘Jana Gana Mana’. As usual the feasting session was the last to be enjoyed prior to closing of the official ceremony.
