Felicitation to Tan Sri Flying Doc

Is that a tribute to loose cannon, Tan Sri, since you are holding a miniature cannon?

Doctor Jegathesan Manickavasagam belongs to a special breed of individuals. His achievements in the world of athletics and medicine are well-documented that all you have to do is just google him. Born in Kuala Kangsar, the Flying Doc holds the unique distinction of having bagged the inaugural National Sportsman Award in 1966 and the National Science Award 1995.  The title Tan Sri conferred by the Yang di-Pertuan Agong to one of Malaysia's favourite sons is certainly a well-deserved honorific for my favourite Doc!

Surely loose cannon could not resist the temptation of registering this for posterity

Frankly, dont you think this honour was rather belated for an icon who shaped Malaysia's athletics story. This guy had been one of the many victims of the savagery of sports politics. Thanks to his unwavering faith in himself, he has been able to survive. But not many are that unfortunate.
