SINGAPORE - A Tamil-language version of former President S R Nathan's memoirs was launched at the Sri Srinivasa Perumal Temple in Little India on Saturday morning.

The translation of the English publication - first released in 2011 and titled "An Unexpected Journey: Path to the Presidency" - was a result of a year-long effort undertaken by Mr A Palaniappan, the Head Specialist (English/Tamil) at the Language Services Department in Parliament.

The event was attended by more than 300 guests, which included Minister for Foreign Affairs and Minister for Law K Shanmugam.

Tamil Murasu, the Tamil-language daily of Singapore Press Holdings, sponsored the translating and publishing costs, as a gift for the Tamil community.
