  • Description
  • About the Author
  • A Kite in the Evening Sky is Shaik Kadir’s firsthand account of growing up in a Geylang Serai kampung in the late 1950s and 1960s. It was a time when children spent the hours after school playing capteh and marbles, eating fresh jambu, hauling pails of water home from the public standpipe, attending prayers at the surau, learning to fast, reading the Quran, as well as enjoying evenings in the open-air cinema.

  • Shaik Kadir is an educator, journalist and a retired senior lecturer at the Institute of Technical Education, Singapore. He holds a Master in Education degree from the University of Sheffield, UK. He has written fiction books, such as Planet of the Dwarfs (1988) and The Girl with the Mole (1992), and several non-fiction books including Commanding a Dynamic Islamic Personality (2000) and Islam Explained (2006, 2017). Many of his articles have appeared in local newspapers and magazines such as The Straits Times, Berita Harian and Her World.
