Freelance researcher V. Kanesan, 62, visited the S R Nathan remembrance area outside the Istana. He said, "He was a man who inspired people. He contributed to Singapore in many areas: as a diplomat, in the Laju incident and as a president. I think all of our presidents have been people’s presidents, they have their own way of reaching out to people. Mr Nathan was a fatherly figure, someone whom people aspire to be."
