This paper contains a collection of Radio Television Malaysia (RTM) interviews with members of MHS to commemorate the 43rd anniversary of independence. The theme ‘The Meaning of Independence’ (Erti Kemerdekaan) will always be discussed when we celebrate our independence but there are times we feel its significance tend to lose its gloss and patriotic fervor especially among the younger generation. Malaysian Historical Society feels the old interviews are still relevant as they serve as supplementary record to the historic and arduous journey to independence achieved 54 years ago. The paper is called ‘Glimpses of Our Merdeka’ as Malaysian Historical Society humbly realizes that the book contain limitations, namely the articles are short and have no academic pretensions. But they are readable, interesting and personal and should be able to provide rich source and insights into our ‘Merdeka’ that could well evoke pride and inspirations.
