Little India - Males only ?

Post by Oriental » Sun, 11 Dec 2005 11:02 pm

I went to have a look at Little India today and found it to be a very exiting and vibrant place.

Something puzzled me though. I saw thousands of people in the streets but they were virtually all male. Where are the women?

There is a large population of Indian nationals working in the construction and marine industries. Almost all are males, and almost all enjoy their rest days on Sundays at Little India.

Thank you for your reply Yoongf. I thought it would be something like that.

Something I noticed as well was that there were big queues at the ATM machines and the international money transfer shops. So I guess they are working abroad and sending money back home, which I think is an admirable thing to do.
