A wonderful example

It might interest your readers to know that the Permanent Secretary in the Singapore Foreign Affairs Ministry who was in Delhi recently along with the Singapore Prime Minister goes by the name of Bilahari Kim Hee Papanasam Setlur Kausikan, a wonderful example of the intermingling of cultures. Mr. Kausikan looks and talks like a Chinese gentleman and is a distinguished diplomat. It must be quite a record that both he and his father, late P.S. Raman, who emigrated to Singapore in 1948 disillusioned with the Partition of the sub-continent have served as Singapore's envoys to Moscow.

Jairam Ramesh,
MP, New Delhi
