This book is a historical account of India's relations with Singapore, which have reached a new peak today. It highlights several turning points in that relationship: the role of Bengal in Sir Stamford Raffles' decision to set up a base in Singapore; the contribution of Indian labour to the construction of Singapore; the Singapore Mutiny of 1915; Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose's arrival in wartime Singapore and the revitalization of the Indian National Army; independent Singapore's early relations with India; the dramatic breakthrough in ties created by India's Look East policy following the end of the Cold War; and, the arrival of global Indians in Singapore.
