About This Book

This book takes a detailed look at the arrival of the Tamils to Singapore from the 19th century, the growth of the community in the decades that followed, the social and political role Tamils played in the tumultuous 50s and 60s, and some of the challenges facing the community in more recent times, such as educational issues, the need for Indian self-help group SINDA, and assimilating the second wave of Indian immigrants. It successfully merges historical accounts with anecdotes and lively descriptions, and the chapters are enlivened by the use of archival and some rarely-seen photographs of the early Tamils from a variety of sources including the National Archives of Singapore.
