Lee Kuan Yew on India

Lee Kuan Yew is the man who took Singapore from the Third World to the First in just 30 years. Mr. Lee (as my dad would call him) was invited to speak at the 37th Jawaharlal Nehru Memorial Lecture on Monday, 21 November 2005 at New Delhi. You can read the transcripts here.

The speech is very interesting. He talks about what went wrong about India, without hurting anyone’s feelings. He also compares India & China, and how and what can India do.

For the people of India who claim to become developed by 2020 by hype & morale alone, I think his words are far too wise to be understood.
