Mahathir, the man, is an enigma to many especially those who misunderstood or misconstrued him. He dared to challenge the system and prevail the many ups and downs of political life. His determination and the heart of steel in him is actually a camouflage of a humble man. Hanya jauhari mengenal maknikam.
Malaysia, made famous by him that we can walk tall when we are abroad. We do not have to explain where our country is located like before when foreigners ask. 'Malaysia cantik', a stall seller said to me when I was in Seoul recently.
The pictures below are not in chronological order of Mahathir through the (early) years. May Allah bless him with many more years.
