A Stradivarius Leader

"A Stradivarius Leader-
On the passing of His Excellency Lee Kuan Yew, one of the most extraordinary and visionary leaders of our time, I convey my deepest condolences and those of the people of Bhutan”  
describes His Majesty King Jigme Khesar Namgyel Wangchuck who is in Singapore to pay his respect and condolences to the Country’s Founding Father. His Majesty the King is also accompanied by Her Majesty Gyaltseun Jetsun Pema Wangchuck.

The Late Lee Kuan Yew popularly revered as the founding father of modern Singapore was the first Prime Minister of the country. Within a span of a single generation, the Late Lee Kuan Yew has transformed that little shrugging island with no resources to the first-world status. Besides being the nation’s idol and a popular figure, Late Lee Kuan Yew was an asset to the neighboring nations and the entire globe for his clean and transparent political model.  On 23rd March, he has peacefully passed away leaving Singapore like a living monument of his accomplished vision and print of legacy in economy and politics.

As history will remember Late Lee as a truly selfless leader, I join His Majesty the King and Her Majesty the Queen in offering our deepest condolences to the entire Singaporean family for the loss of their nation’s gem.
May his soul Rest in Peace.
