An excerpt from “Reduced Reflections”:
A crowd is composed of individuals. The individual is a concrete being; the crowd is an abstraction. To stand with the multitude is easy; to stand with the minority is difficult; to stand alone is phenomenal. Individuality is a mark of distinction, the jewel of character.

About the Author
Born around the time of the foundation of the Republic of China, in the former English colony of British Malaya, Tan Kheng Yeang was educated in an English school. From his early days the author was interested in literature and philosophy, and as his interest evolved to science, he decided to study civil engineering at the University of Hong Kong, as he felt he needed a practical career. After the Japanese occupied Hong Kong, he fled to free China, where he found work in an office constructing roads and later an airfield in Guangxi Province. After the war ended in 1945, he returned to Malaya and became an engineer in the City Council of Georgetown, Penang. After his retirement, he worked as an engineering consultant. He is the author of 12 books that reflect the broad range of his interests and talents.
