Every 4th person in Singapore is an Indian

With the number of settlers from India almost doubling in the last two years, every fourth person in Singapore now belongs the Indian community, which is showing much interest in setting up firms in the island state. The city has a population of 1.79 million, including expatriates, and out of that 400,000 are of Indian origin, showing a 100% increase in the community size in two years.... 1 Oct 2010 The above is quoted from The Financial Express. I am very curious with the numbers mentioned. Singapore's population is 1.79 m, including expatriates, and 400k are Indians. How do these numbers compare with our 5m population, including expatriates? And if every 1 in 4 is an Indian, there should be 1.25m Indians here. Initially I though the numbers were those in the 1960s. I just don't know. Has there at any time in our history that the Indian population hit 25%? My memory says no.

The Financial Express is an Indian publication. What you are reading may be an extrapolation of a pipe dream to the future.

They hope..........

We pray............

Yet, it may not be that preposterous.

I just brought my mother of 87 to a specialist clinic at a restructured hospital. All the clinics with few exceptions had an Indian name of a doctor on the door.
I thought I was in Mumbai. My mother asked me what the fuck was happening.

I had no answer and was speechless not from the inability to explain the dynamics of politics but dumbfounded at the stupidity of it all.

We need more talented Indians. They make good politicians, lawyers, doctors, IT specialists, and bankers too.

Here we go with the race-shit again.

That being said, I think the figures quoted are bogus.

However, I would guess that the fastest growing "race" are the chap chengs ... in this case the "kia's" or children.

There is alot of inter-racial fucking going on, and from pregnant womens' vaginas an increasing number of exotic mixed-breds are sprouting forth like never before.

That's what I like, and it's good for the species: a nicely mixed and diverse gene pool.

Actually, come to think of it, fucking is a great way to "unite" the locals and foreigners and to heal the xenophobic rifts between the groups.

So folks, keep fucking...for the sake of peace and national prosperity!

...and do it like you mean it...like a patriot!
