Authorities not sure what went right.

Authorities still grappling for answers as to why the Little India riot occurred in December three years ago were left even more puzzled as watering hole Clarke Quay did not experience a similar incident the previous year, last year and this year.

This despite Clarke Quay having all the elements there at one place to start the most proper and epic riot.

An official spokesperson, Qu Da Jia, said: “All the contributing factors present in Little India three Decembers ago have been similarly available in Clarke Quay throughout the past three years: People, alcohol and dustbins for tossing.”

“But nothing happened.”

Singaporeans from all walks of life, who can see things clearly for what they are if they are sober enough, have also expressed their amazement that Clarke Quay was not ground zero given that there are more drunks there and alcohol is way overpriced.

Qu Pia Zui, a local said: “A bottle of beer for S$14? I’m surprised no one has started a fight over that yet.”

However, the lack of riots at Clarke Quay has been shown to be a result of expensive alcohol possessing certain anti-rioting elements.

A Singaporean scientist, Dr Lim Kar Tor had discovered that the two main anti-rioting properties present in expensive alcohol are called “wealth” and “opportunity”, which make a difference in the reactions of drinkers.

Dr Lim explained then: “You can find these properties called ‘wealth’ and ‘opportunity’ only in expensive alcohol. Once you’ve consumed enough of it, you wouldn’t be upset with your lot in life.”

“But nothing happened.”

Singaporeans from all walks of life have also expressed their amazement that Clarke Quay was not ground zero given that there are more drunks there and alcohol is way overpriced.

Qu Pia Zui, a local said: “A bottle of beer for $12? I’m surprised no one has started a fight over that yet.”

However, the lack of riots at Clarke Quay has been shown to be a result of expensive alcohol possessing certain anti-rioting elements.

A Singaporean scientist, Dr Lim Kar Tor had discovered earlier in March last year that the two main anti-rioting properties present in expensive alcohol are called “wealth” and “opportunity”, which make a difference in the reactions of drinkers.

Dr Lim explained then: “You can find these properties called ‘wealth’ and ‘opportunity’ only in expensive alcohol. Once you’ve consumed enough of it, you wouldn’t be upset with your lot in life.”

Look what happened last year when they felt okay.

little-india-riot-fire

Singaporeans from all walks of life who are underhappy have expressed their concerns that foreign workers in Singapore have been feeling okay the past 12 months and this does not bode well as it might inevitably lead to another riot to happen in the city-state.

This after it was revealed in a recent manpower survey that nine in 10 foreign workers are generally satisfied with working in Singapore, which proves once and for all that there is no such thing as unhappiness in this country.

Singaporeans’ main concern stems from the fact that foreign workers who also felt okay in 2013 ended up on the streets causing the Little India riot to break out on Dec. 8, 2013.

Singaporeans who watched the footage of the riot after it happened agreed with the government’s analysis that the foreign workers who set things on fire and threw rocks on the streets were doing so only because they were generally happy with their jobs, working conditions and their overall lot in life.

One Singaporean, Pah Kah Luan, said: “As the foreign workers have continued to feel okay in Singapore, it is a sign that they might be ready to throw rocks and set things on fire again.”

“Feeling okay has been the leading cause of riots in Singapore and as they have felt the same way throughout the past year, there is no doubt we are due for another one soon.”

Public inquiry wears on, continues to reveal there is nothing wrong in Singapore.

little-india-coi

Singaporeans from all walks of life, who have been paying close attention to the proceedings of the Little India riot public inquiry that started three weeks ago, are starting to think twice and questioning themselves.

They are asking themselves if there are really sufficient reasons to believe the Little India riot really even took place on Dec. 8, 2013.

Testimony given at the Committee of Inquiry convened to look for possible causes of the Little India riot have so far all been positive and underscored the fact that there is nothing wrong in Singapore and foreign workers have been feeling okay all along.

Witnesses ranging from foreign workers to governmental organisation personnel and authorities have given testimony so far.

They have said they didn’t think anything was wrong with the foreign workers, conditions in Singapore have been pleasant, wages are good, food is abundant and camaraderie among foreigners is keeping everyone alive and well.

One Singaporean, Jiang Zhen De, said: “Listening to all the witnesses give testimony saying everything is okay and how there is no problems in Singapore in the first place is really making me think twice about whether the Little India riot even happened.”

“Could the riot have been a mass hallucination in the first place then? Because since everything in Singapore is okay, then there is definitely no riot to begin with, right?”

Without it, Singapore will become a topsy-turvy society.

little-india-riot-police

Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong said on Tuesday that the December 8 riot in Little India is a good reminder to people about the importance of a stable society.

PM Lee said the incident, which is the country’s worst riot in 40 years, was a good reminder to people that in a stable society, such incidents can still happen.

Experts that New Nation interviewed said PM Lee’s comments about a stable society most likely referred to the role of gravity being fundamental in maintaining stability, which can also be the cause of riots.

Self-styled political pundit, Eric de Yaya, said: “Imagine if there wasn’t gravity. The rioters will be floating in mid-air, and when they flipped the police car over, they would have sent it hurtling into space.”

“There are, therefore, many lessons to be learnt from the riot. We can point to how a multi-ethnic, harmonious society is necessary, but at the same time, we also need to address the need for physics and fundamental forces like gravitational force.”

“Basically, because, if you want to extrapolate from one riot, anything also can link one.”

Little India feels bustling and riot-free like always.

little-india

As part of a series of knee-jerk measures to prevent another riot from happening, a complete ban on alcohol was put in place in Little India this weekend by the authorities.

And the effects of the alcohol ban on Little India was acutely felt on Saturday yesterday, the first day of the prohibition.

Little India, according to everyone who was there, felt just like every weekend — bustling and without trouble.

One Singaporean, Kee Pia Zhui, said: “With no alcohol in Little India this Saturday, the mood is exactly like how Little India always felt. Riot-free and everyone out and about.”

This sentiment was shared by foreign workers who were there.

One foreign worker, who was wearing a checked shirt but is Not The Little India Riot Hero, said: “You can take away our alcohol and our shuttle buses, but Little India will always be Little India.”

“More edgy than Chinatown, less sleazy than Geylang.”

“And always riot-free, except for one day.”

About several thousand showed up in same kind of shirt to campaign against racism.

Several thousand people showed up in Little India today in checked shirts in a bid to fool the mainstream media into thinking that they are the real Little India riot hero.

This after Channel News Asia and The Straits Times made a hash out of their reporting last evening by proclaiming some random person wearing a checked shirt as the Little India riot hero who was caught on video deterring a dustbin-tossing crowd.

However, as the media has not apologise for their erroneous reporting, normal people on the street are sticking it to them.

One random person in a checked shirt, who wanted to be known as Little India Riot Hero, said: “The only reason the mainstream media got it wrong is because they think all South Asians look alike.”

“This is a form of racism.”

“So, if they think we are all alike, then we shall all dress alike then. That would show them.”

An alternative explanation has emerged to shed light on last Sunday’s Little India riot.

little-india-riot-car

Foreign workers were feeling okay when they rioted last Sunday.

This new theory has been put forth by many Singaporeans as they re-watched the footage of the riot and agreed with the government’s analysis that there is no such thing as unhappiness.

One Singaporean, Pah Kah Luan, said: “Look at that guy flipping the police car over. He is so happy with his employers, colleagues, society and his lot in life in general.”

“He is just expressing his joy.”

Another local, Fang Huo Shao, said: “Look at all the foreign workers throwing stuff. This is how they normally spend their free time and it is completely normal.”

“I’m sure foreign workers who have grievances will express them the same way Singaporeans do: Go online and bitch about it.”

Fake news piece causes a bit of diplomatic tension.

sun-tv

Singapore is reportedly very, very angry with India’s Sun TV for broadcasting a piece of made up news regarding the Little India riot on Sunday.

The satirical news piece was aired on television in India as a bulletin on Monday evening, with gravity thrown in for effect.

However, unbeknownst to Singapore, Sun TV is widely known from the Ganges to the Taj Mahal, as The Onion of the sub-continent’s billion people.

In the bulletin, the news anchor with a toupee and a funny bush over his lip reported that the Little India riot in Singapore on Sunday was caused when an Indian man was killed after he was pushed out of a bus by a Singaporean woman.

Such an act is considered both profane and funny in their culture.

And then two vehicles suddenly caught fire as a result.

To add to the absurdity of it, this was followed by the report saying that the Singaporean authorities and Chinese people proceeded to attack the Indians.

With the satire coming hard and fast without skipping a beat, the news bulletin suddenly featured footage of Teo Chee Hean talking at 2 a.m. in a daze.

To make matters even funnier, someone in Singapore actually made a police report against Sun TV, with the hopes that the authorities can arrest someone in India for writing comedy.

Watch the Sun TV skit here:

Many unsure at anger from foreign workers

So. Much. Debris.

So. Much. Debris.

It was 3am in the morning and Thiru Mugamathum was still cleaning debris off the streets of Little India. The 34 year old Indian national was called on at the last minute by his agency, following a huge party that saw cars flipped, stuff burnt and people arrested.

“I am tired, but at least boss is paying overtime,” said Thiru, who has worked in Singapore for three years.

“I’m actually glad for the opportunity to earn more money tonight. Of course here the pay is low, hours are long, there is quite a bit of discrimination, and I always wish that I could be at home with my wife and family. But such is life!” Said Thiru, adding that he admired the Singaporean sense of stoicism, particularly in the face of injustice.

Latest surveys done by important government funded think tanks show that 9 out of 10 foreign workers feel grateful forobtaining employment in Singapore, and living in conditions slightly more squalid than back home.

They are also in deep awe of the Singaporean sense of ennui, which has thus far kept the island politically stable and functioning, despite increasing costs of living and stagnant wages.

“Ennui, or in local parlance, feeling sian, has been incredibly effective in making sure angst will either be repressed, or expressed passively downstream against a less dominant class,” said self titled political pundit Eric de Yaya. “When an oppressed person is aware of another more oppressed class, he will seek to empower himself by bullying another.”

“It is but a very simple phenomenon.”

“When I joined my comrades in the bus worker strike, I was so surprised that no Singaporean ever fought for their wages before,” said 29 year old former bus driver Lai Gan Huo who is a seasoned striker in china.

“But this little India riot, I’m not sure what the purpose is. Might be just ennui. Car cannot fight back mah,” said Lai, who has a degree in anthropology from his provincial university.

Freedom of choice and individual rights will lead to free-for-all.

little-india-riot-03

Singaporeans from all walks of life with varying liberties are blaming Democracy for causing the Little India riot on Sunday night.

This after almost 400 people took turns turning things over and setting things on fire in Little India that quickly descended into a free-for-all.

One Singaporean, who declined to be named, because it is his right after all, said: “The riot was caused by Democracy, which states that everyone has a right to something. This is the problem.”

“This episode has taught us that the last thing we need is more individual freedom.”
