My dad was in Stadium Merdeka when our first Prime Minister declared our independence.
My dad who was at that time aged 10 had followed a group of school friends to the stadium but being young did not really understand what Tunku was saying to the crowd in the Stadium. He however understood the atmosphere and the significant of the moment.
