Honesty and graciousness on display

I felt jubilant reading the article on July 9 ("Van driver owns up to hitting car").

I was happy to read about the act of a foreign worker being highlighted, as he is a role model of honesty and integrity in owning up to hitting a car.

This act of confession and owning up without being told or asked is rare, especially when there are no witnesses around.

I applaud the owner of the car, Mr Tony Wee, too, for taking the trouble to compliment Mr Panneerselvam Kulothungan, the foreign worker who hit Mr Wee's car with the company van he was driving, then waiting an hour in vain and returning the next day to apologise to Mr Wee.
