"I've Been Living A Life Of Lies All My Life" Says Anthony Thanasayan

Exclusive Interview with Anthony Thanasayan on Astro Awani


DID YOU MISS Anthony Thanasayan's interview on the In Person show on Astro Awani?

No need to fret!
Here are the broadcast times again to catch the repeats this and next week:

Tune in on Thursday (5am & 11.30am), Saturday (12.30am), Sunday (4.30am & 1.30pm) and Monday (6am & 3.30pm).  
Hosted by Syed Farradino Omar (left), Thanasayan speaks on his activism with disability and animal-assisted therapy. 
Born disabled, he was denied a formal education because the authorities refused to make a disabled-friendly toilet, he says. 
Depression set in during his teenage and young adult life until a trip to the United States in the late eighties changed his life forever. 
"I took my first public bus there and immediately realised that I had been living a life of lies all of my life that if you are disabled, your life is over," he told Dino in an unrehearsed interview wheeling by the shops in Mid Valley Megamall in Kuala Lumpur recently. 
"Now it's no more about pity but about our rights - and my mission is to demand those rights not only for me but for all Malaysians with disabilities in the nation," he concluded. 
So be sure to catch In Person on Astro Awani at the next available time!
It's an interview that you don't want to miss. 

Astro Awani is aired on Astro Channel 501.
