KUALA LUMPUR: The Yang di-Pertuan Agong Tuanku Abdul Halim Mu’adzam Shah launched a coffee table book titled On Common Ground by columnist Tuanku Raja Zarith Sofiah Sultan Idris Shah.

The event was also graced by the Raja Permaisuri Agong Tuanku Hajah Haminah.

On Common Ground is a collection of 80 selected articles by Raja Zarith Sofiah that were published in her column On Common Ground and Mind Matters in theNew Straits Times and The Sunday Star respectively from 2000 to 2012.

In her speech, Raja Zarith Sofiah, who is the consort of the Sultan of Johor, thanked the King and Queen for gracing the book launch.

It was a dream for any writer to have his or her work published, she said, adding that she felt blessed to have hers fulfilled, thus allowing a larger circle of people to share her thoughts.

“Beyond our families sharing memories together, all of us, as Malaysians, share the same concerns about local and international issues,” she said.

“Through the articles I wrote, I was able to share these concerns with my readers.”

This, she said, was much more valuable than the monthly remuneration she got from the publishers.

She said it was also rewarding to meet different groups of people and be told that they had enjoyed reading her articles.
