Well clearly this is the problem we have at the table. I feel that this is morally wrong. Because I've never seen myself as a Singaporean. I was just unlucky having to be born here and allow my mother to drag me back with her.JR8 wrote: 3) SG won't let you renounce unless you have served NS
Well the last one I'm quite having reservations because my mother seems to want to stay in Singapore. Suppose if she chooses to stay here for the rest of her life. I'd want to be able to see her in case something happens to her health. And the idea of being criminalized in any part of the world is not something I'd like.5) If you renege on your SGn obligations, you will never visit SG again, or if you do you'll be jailed on the spot.
I agree.The rest of your background and story are what you desire to happen. So you have to blend the facts and desires as best you can.
I agree that I probably should complete NS should India not choose to accept me officially. But I'd be very depressed, because I would be legally considered to be something I myself do not identify with and that my own country(India) would not consider me to be Her son.So, in my humble and inexpert opinion how about:
1) Apply for Indian citizenship
2) Serve NS
3) If 1) is approved, and 2) has been completed, renounce SG and move to India.
I can't see any other way, can you?
Holding Indian passport means I would be open to achieving things politically and should there be an imminent threat to my nation, I will have the honour of being able to fight for it.
And that can happen anytime given the political atmosphere of Israel being under threat and India being its close ally, terrorism from Pakistan and border issues with other countries.
