Philip Li Ching Hum is one of the rare Sino-Mauritians who, in spite of very good university degrees, did not leave the country to find a better place abroad. As a true patriot, he invests himself in social work trying to help his neighbour, whatever his class or creed. He is a good observer of our society and never spares a moment at commenting on things as they are, especially when he feels that there is injustice. News On Sunday thinks it fit that he gives his views on the local Chinese community- their apprehensions, wishes and hopes.
