More than the Eye Can See: Memoirs of Gopinath Pillai [Paperback]

by Pillai, Gopinath / Vater, John

  • (0)

More Than The Eye Can See is the memoir of Gopinath Pillai, a Singaporean businessman and diplomat of Indian-origin who served as Singapore's Non-Resident Ambassador to Iran (1989-2008) as well as High Commissioner to Pakistan (1994-2001) before becoming Ambassador-at-Large. Alongside helping to strengthen Singapore's manufacturing and international trading capabilities in the 1970s-1990s amid the Cold War, he broke into liberalising India as a trailblazing entrepreneur and contributed to Singapore's public life as the first Chairman of NTUC Fairprice and Founder Chairman of the Institute of South Asian Studies.A self-described 'Jack of All Trades', Gopinath's story frames episodes of personal and professional growth against milestones in the progress of the nation. Born in Singapore to Malayalee parents in 1937, Gopinath spent his early childhood in India throughout the Japanese Occupation, where he witnessed the spirit of the Freedom Struggle and Communist Movement in Kerala first-hand. When he returned to Singapore in 1946, Gopinath grew up alongside Chinese friends in a multi-racial society taking its fledgling steps as a democracy. His globetrotting career took him all over - to Thailand and Malaysia as an economist and journalist and the Gulf States and America as a manager - reflecting Singapore's early industrialisation and pursuit of its values and interests abroad and at home.Co-written with John Vater, More Than The Eye Can See is a panorama of a man and his times.
