Some 500 well-wishers led by Tan Sri Dr M. Mahadevan and Tan Sri Lee Oi Hian were present to celebrate Dato’ Dr Maduri Majumder’s 80th birthday. The party was held at the Kinta Riverfront Hotel, Ipoh on Sunday, March 10.
Dato’ Dr Majumder took the opportunity to launch the Majumder Scholarship Fund for needy students. Six students from two schools, SMK Sri Putera Sungai Pari and SMK Buntong were the first recipients of the scholarship.
Majumder, Ipoh’s own Mother Theresa, was obviously touched by the many accolades showered on her. She pledged to continue with her charity works in spite of her advanced age.
Guests enjoyed a sumptuous dinner followed by music and dances by some well-known local groups, including a sterling performance by Dato’ Ramli Ibrahim.
