Description

Singapore and India established diplomatic relations in August 1965. However, their ties date as far back as the 10th century. The last half century has seen a blossoming of their relationship. The two countries? warm and substantive friendship is based upon history, economics, defence cooperation and a high degree of mutual trust. The relationship is quite unique because a significant portion of Singapore?s population consists of ethnic Indians and an Indian language, Tamil, is one of Singapore?s official languages.
The book brings together 51 of Singapore?s thought leaders. They come from different sectors of the Singapore?s society. Each of them has written an essay on India?s past or present or future. Each essay is short, easy to read and full of insight and humour. One of the writers is Singapore?s Senior Minister, Mr Tharman Shanmugaratnam, a person who is admired both in Singapore and in India. The book includes essays on Nalanda University, Amaravati, India-Singapore Comprehensive Economic Cooperation Agreement and the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership. On the lighter side, the book contains two charming essays by Ambassador Karen Tan and Eirliani Abdul Rahman on their time in India.
The book?s foreword is written by Mr Goh Chok Tong, Singapore?s second Prime Minister. It was Mr Goh who overcame prejudice and inertia and launched a new beginning in Singapore-India relations. This publication is a candid reflection of India and India-Singapore relations by Singaporeans who carry the hope that India will rise above its challenges to join the ranks of the great nations of the world. It will be of interest to Singaporeans who are interested in India and Indians who are interested in Singapore.
