    I would agree with that. Singapore positively thunders with its own prosperity. Anyway, the 50-year mark of Indo-Singaporean bilateral relations of these two naturally close post-colonial countries is a conspicuous milestone.

    Singapore to Have Indian Heritage Centre

    NEW DELHI: Singapore will soon have an Indian Heritage Centre that will testify the role Indians have played and continue to play in that country. This was stated by Singapore President Tony Tan Keng Yam here today as he pressed for enhancing the cultural ties between the two countries. "A new Indian Heritage Centre, which will open soon in Singapore also testifies the key role that the Indian community has played and continues to play in Singapore story," Yam said while inaugurating the Perankan World exhibition at National Museum here. He said a Indian culture festival would be hosted in Singapore later this year. Holding that India and Singapore have historical cultural relationship, the Singapore President stressed on sharing of experiences for better understanding between the two countries. "The more experiences we share the better our two countries would be able to understand each other," he noted. Yam also recalled the cooperation between the cultural institutions in India and Singapore. "Our cultural institutions have a long history of close cooperation. Singapore's National Heritage Board has worked with Museums in India for more than 20 years," he added. The exhibition, "The Peranakan World -- Cross-cultural Art of Singapore and the Straits of Malacca" began today and will run till March 25 at the National Museum. The Peranakan Chinese are descendants of southern Chinese traders who settled in Southeast Asia and married local women. Their culture is rooted in Chinese traditions, but with strong influences from Southeast Asia and Europe.

    Singapore is one of India's strongest allies in the region. A peaceful and very prosperous country, it is one country that has immense further trade and strategic cooperation potential.

    Their city planning is the best on earth. In one city, they have everything even countries 20 times their size don't have.

    Manufacturing, reselling, shipping, commercial markets, malls, race tracks you name it and they have it.

    Singapore should be bagged for replanning of tier-2 towns and cities in India.

    I would love my Gangtok to look as organized and gleaming as Singapore.... and retain the green and nature's bounty that we have. :D
