What India done right

What India done right and Singapore failed miserably is the emphasis on IT. Singapore seems to have lost a generation of IT programmers/analysts/software specialists through its neglect in teaching these subjects in schools, polytechnics and the universities. Everyday I am reminded of the army of IT professionals in MBFC. My whole floor is flooded with these IT people from India, a testament that India has done right in foreseeing the future, planning and educating a whole generation of such specialists for the industry worldwide. How could we have missed this boat?

The dearth of IT specialists is seriously felt in the banking and finance industry and they have no choice but to go to India where they are armies of them waiting eagerly to be hired. If only Singapore's education has done it right, today all the IT specialists being hired to work in the banks would have been Singaporeans and not foreigners. Our university graduates would be gainfully employed and not be dumped into taking up part time jobs or unrelated contract jobs earning a pathetic pay not enough to live on.

This is what careful planning and doing the right thing is all about at govt level. They called it foresight, the ability to look into the future like the CFE is doing. This is also proof that the govt's proactive and crystal ball gazing ability is greatly lacking.

How I wish the number of IT specialists employed in MBFC are Singaporeans and not foreigners and our graduates need not waste their time and money to study irrelevant courses and ended with degrees that cannot be eaten.

Please learn from India and start to educate our graduates in useful and relevant courses and not courses that no employer wants. I feel so sorry for our graduates and their parents that foot the bills for their education whenever I see the happy faces of the foreigners here. These faces could be the happy faces of our young graduates.

Where is the clever thinking and planning for the future? Would the recent CPE end up 10 or 20 years in the future with more pathetic problems like what we are seeing today when a whole industry needing an army of IT specialists and has to import them, unable to find any local to fill the vacancies?

Indians focused and trusted in IT and they got the jobs.
Singaporeans focused and trusted in PAP and we got unemployed.

Is this fair?

What is PAP's focus?
Staying in power with million dollar salaries forever? OR

Was LKY the only one looking into the future?
If CFE cannot see all the Indian IT professionals IN MBFC ... then CFE got any use or not ... besides just mental masturbating to feel good.

/// Dr. Ng replied: "The question is, does MM add value to Singapore? I'm not talking about in history, I'm talking about now. That's the question that should be asked, not whether he should retire or not. Singaporeans must decide. MM spots pitfalls, he tells you what to avoid. He pushed for F1, for the IRs. So you decide. At the end of the day, it's the vote. If his constituents at Tanjong Pagar feel he's not adding value, they are free to vote."

“So, when I heard Dr Tan Cheng Bock, I decided I would stand up and tell him he’s wrong…you have to decide whether you think he knows more or I know more. You have to decide whether he will give you the answer to Singapore’s future — or that I am likely to give you the better road to the future.”

Then SM Lee arrogantly rebuked Dr Tan Cheng Bock, then MP for Ayer Rajah, who urged the Government to tone down its calls for the recruitment of foreign talent and reassure Singaporeans that they came first (14 August 1999)

While MM Lee had been visionary and well respected during his reign as prime minister of Singapore, he had lost that midas touch since he stepped down from his PM post more than 20 years ago as judged from the many controversial statements that he had made during these years, which have been captured here in this page.

“LKY was a very good leader in his first 20 years of rule, assisted by fine and committed good men like Toh Chin Chye, GKS and Rajatranam. Having said that, since the stepping down of these fine men, LKY has been courting many controversies …… His last 20 years “achievements” are highly questionable without those early PAP fine men by his side.”
– Ang Sar Lee

“Like many founders, first half were mostly right as they were mostly driven by ideologies, dreams, convictions and GUTS. There aren’t many that can take that away from LKY.
But second half were always a problem, and LKY also could not run away from it.”

Singapore will always be lacking and a few steps behind India, PRC or even the Yanks. In Singapore getting into Uni is the target, no matter what you choose to study. Medicine and Law, these the the most sought after degrees. IT? that is for nerts, or so they thought. Now the FTs from India are all gainfully employed here in Singapore and Singaporean graduates can only look on enviously. Don't blame the government for this, just blame yourselves for the lack of foresight and also the greed for that pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. Singaporeans are too timid and cannot think out of the box. Singaporeans will always be doing the catch-ups. Alway a few steps behind. The best universities, the best education system, the best government and the richest country in S E Asia. And where does all these get you? Need more FTs to run your businesses, need workers to build your HDBs, shopping malls, offices and MRTs, helpers to work in your homes to cook and look after your old and young and also to man your front desks at all hotels and receptions. While most Singaporeans have to work 2 jobs per family to make ends meet and work long hours to survive.

Is this a good place to bring up your families? I am seriously thinking that Singaporeans are going down a slippery slope to a very difficult end, We shall have to wait and see. The next 20 years will reveal which countries in S E Asia will be at the top and which will be at the bottom.

Every body learned IT as a subject with others. IT is not a fixed path. Hire Indian IT is a fixed all solution? No. If people think IT is a pc of rock. Buy the rock to sit there, things will move. It s not.

Yesterday s IT professional may not be useful for today. Those old programs like in Fortron Cobol are not longer useful due to its very limited ability. I m no IT as major, I tried on Php which is again outdated, and HTML5, these are so much powerful languages. If People doing hiring thinking going to India can get IT professional, I can tell u this is a way to get in more Indians to occupy the seats. How is Chennai s ability to train up programmers of modern IT languages? Think mah. I will rather go to US to hire from those firms currently engaging in the most up to date languages or programs.

Why I say programs? There are apps that create mor apps. There are people actually helping to create apps while they earn a living through using those apps. Example, someone create an apps to make website fast. He makes money from using the apps, and writing improvement programs to change the apps to be bigger and more functional. More join him as this is money mine or gold mine.
These I call IT professional worth hiring. Go to India to hire someone to mess up the already working banking programs or stock exchange programs, this is the Singapore way.

The Singapore way is: no singaporean should get into IT because the state says Indians are in silicon valley, so Indians are better, mumbai, chennai, those ulu areas like villages with flooding, will have many IT professionals ready to create new programs for Singapore. So go India to hire, go Philippines to hire. When a product is sold in market, Singaporeans buy Taiwan Asus, China Huawei. So the whole idea is to collapse Singapore s reputation in IT. Where are Singapore trained IT?

Singapore trained IT deserves to drive Taxi. i got into a book cab, found the young man driving state own taxi. He told me not part time, but full time. He was doing IT.
Is it very difficult for this ex IT to pick up writing programs in new programming language such as HTML5 or whatever apps? I think he should be 10000times faster than me learning it myself.

It is a scam to hire IT "pros" from flooding villages to run the bank programming. Only this country bother to do it. They never want to see own citizens earn enough money to start family or pay for their old folks medical. Yet these foolish jobless young professional are willingly voting for the state to make them difficult. They are not good in logical thinking, even they are trained. That is not the reason. They lack the courage to change the pro foreigner policy. It s a pity.

If Singapore s IT remains in IT, there can be new apps appearing in market, even under public license for younger professional to improve the apps. Which app or program is under public license in Singapore? In India? From this point, I can say Singapore IT HAS almost ZERO FUTURE.

Actually this IT sector lacking of professional is the whites Garman fault & they will never admit the mistakes. The Sinkieland PeeAyam & DeePeeAyam r all computer science trained but they wouldn't want to promote this computer knowledge in its education systems for fear of 'very difficult to control them & most will migrate to other greener pastures resulting in lost of talents'. In the beginning 90s & 2000s there were many IT PMETs but they were gradually replaced by Ftrashes as employers r partly to be blamed for depressing these IT professionals' wages...today many r out of jobs some move to other industries while other migrated overseas (to OZ, US or EU), it's a pathetic IT scene in Sinkieland.

Right, sinkies parents wants their children to go to JCs and later Unis doing what business administration, business management, medicines, law, what curry laws and super liars.

Prestigious professions. Going to polys, aiyo no choice than go polys. Learn IT in JC??

JCs modules to go for the above mentioned professions not IT.

So a IT poly grad is more hands on even more than a third grade uni grade.

What business management?? Business men/women are inborn astute human beans with street wise inborn shrewdness and six senses. Not book churned nonsense business men and women.

Most businesses under them goes under. So many fine examples in sinkieland.

IT study of only servicing computers are technicians from ITE. You must study useful modules revelant to today's business and technology era.

Able to innovate and create. Others are just learning tools where any lay person can learn if they really wanted to.

Many young dies scorn oldies for not knowing the IT tools in working environment.

This is just a part of today's working tools and no big deal of it if the oldies are prepared
to learn and master it.

Don't understand why they so afraid even of their own shadows that they are spending so much monies on what nonsense urban fighting town and what cyber security.

Some people blamed laziness on citizens so that Indians IT pros can replace them. The state blames citizens sense of entitlement for jobs against the Indian pros to take up jobs in financial and banking industries.

I think it is a planned move to shift billions dollars out of Singapore monthly to weaken the economy. Look at the number of employment pass and PR. Almost 1 millions. Each take away 2000 to 3000 dollars per month, the outflow of cash is 2.5 billions dollars. The planned move is to write off the retailers who think they can make money through being own boss. The plan is to keep starving the trained graduates so that they continue to pay for courses run by many state owned institutions to get accreditation. They want to earn more money by training the jobless to be more well trained than master and doctorate degree holders but driving cabs to serve people.

The main state plan is to cater for foreigners to make money in this little space and ship outside it monthly and to weaken families finances so that these folks will still vote for them in coming election.

Put it this way;
even if there are lots of Sinkie IT Professinals, they will stand no chance against the Aliens that You see around.
These Aliens are favoured by employers because they are much cheaper and very eager to do overtime which the Locals do not have the Luxury of time as most have to care for family.
Male Sinkies are obligated to National Service which is very disruptive to their occupations and this is also a reason for employers to DISfavour them.

All considered, there are much against the Locals so long as aliens are allowed to work in Sin.
This is a reality in Sin.

"Better start training your children to drive taxis."

I see many very young men are driving taxi private type during week days. I guessed those were rented cars. This is a must do for citizens as they must vote for Pap. Pap will get good support when every young NSman drives taxi for a living. It will be easy to control them with records and they cannot earn much per day.

Foreigners can expand the job markets by giving civil service jobs to these people from India. Monthly shifting out may 5 to 10 billions salaries out of Singapore will be just nice to keep every NS man only want to be professional taxi driver, hawkering is going to be dead business too, as no customers can afford noodle soup at 5 to 10 dollars per bowl after watering taxes keep increasing with electricity to give more revenues to heng ah.

The second best thing India did was sign a deal with cuntries like Singapore. The best thing they did was to get their kids writing code.

As far as IT is concerned, I've been telling my friends for years....way back to the 1990's:


In the 2000's when Python was increasing in popularity, I reminded them again: "Eh, Python lah...gonna be a big deal. Ask your kids to learn!"

Luckily, some of them did.

The most common response I got was "Why? What the hell for? Better for them to learn how to write good composition, become lawyer!" or "Better for them to learn another spoken language. Computer language...no point lah!"

Big Face Palm!

Yes, I am aware that Singapore definitely ICT-powerful. Many Singaporeans know how to code very well, and even design great hardware.

But India has "critical mass" in that they simply have the numbers of people who started very young.
