Interesting. Its a matter of extreme case of coincidence that there is another person with similar profile like you or is it you :twisted:

In 100% seriousness.... I would be looking to take your qualifications elsewhere. I don't see that level of capability being rewarded in the long term in Singapore.

Sure, no one is holding you from trying. The consensus here is:
'P1 + 3 years + male kid' is the minimum for a Indian to have any chance of a Singapore PR.

As far as US qualification goes, you may infact be a high risk PR to Singapore coz if you could get SC after a few years, you can get a US GC almost immediately.

Then you should be in no hurry then. If it feels like home, you'd be staying put and the government wants incidental proof of that. As I've said before, sincerity still can't be documented.

You feel like home because it's not a shit hole like your own home. Why not go back and fix India?

For the same reason I don't go back home. The problems can only be fixed by drastic measures and it's illegal to own automatic weapons. :P :wink:

If Singapore feels like home and you're going to stay here anyway, you have nothing to lose by trying. If they say no, you can always just reapply. Just dont do it again before the stated reapplications period finishes as that isn't likely to be looked upon favourably.

India's problems are actually fixable. The US's problems probably not so much.

I bet he doesn't feel even close to this. Indians tend to be pretty nationalistic (for lack of a better word).

He probably feels it, but probably wouldn't like to to be told so by a foreigner. Yeah Indians are very nationalistic in that sense.

I would imagine any emerging market citizens would behave same way. Take the Chinese for instance, they would never let their country down no matter what.

Developed countries citizens are different, they are more matured than that :wink:
