    Light on the Lotus Hill
    "Light on the Lotus Hill" is a research project by Chan CW to document a chapter of the almost forgotten history of Singapore and World War Two.

    Background of Light on the Lotus Hill
    After 5 years of research in Singapore, China, Malaysia, and UK, the book was published on 28 May 2009.

    It documents the life of a Buddhist monk, Venerable Pu Liang, who supported China Relief Fund's fund raising activities in Nanyang, today's South East Asia.

    The Venerable also offered temple grounds for the training of Nanyang Volunteers who later drove on the Burma Road.

    After the fall of Singapore, the Venerable was executed by the Japanese during the Chinese massacre. During the research, a British POW's daughter helped provided vital evidence as her father, a British POW at Changi, witnessed the execution.

    This research offers an alternative understand of World War Two and how Nanyang Chinese occupied multiple spaces of wars in China and Colonial Singapore.

    These parallel worlds collapse into one dark reality as the Japanese invaded Singapore converging Sino Japanese War with World War Two.

    Library collection
    Since its publication, "Light on the Lotus Hill" has entered the collection of prominent University and public libraries around the world.
