Few relatives I’ve had the privilege of meeting were as interesting as Shu—he always scolded me when I tried to call him Tok Shu—who passed away on Wednesday, after what was by all accounts a full and vivid life. Born in 1925 as the third son of Tuanku Abdul Rahman, his early life was spent in the Federated Malay State of Negeri Sembilan. His time at the Malay College Kuala Kangsar was interrupted by the Japanese invasion and sent by the new imperialists for training in Japan aboard a nauseating cargo vessel in 1943, he experienced the bombings of Fukuoka and saw the horrific aftermath of the nuclear attack on Hiroshima.
