Nominate Singaporean Jolovan Wham for Nobel Prize: spread real facts about Singapore

Why did Jeff Bezos chose ‘Medium’ for an Important Blog Post of his life?

Due to similar reason, now I chose to use Medium to spread awareness about “Singapore, Singapore Government and Singaporean Operating System in Practice” that are used to achieve Singapore government’s “Singaporean Excellence”.

Singaporean Governance and Corporate Governance

Do you know about Singapore Sling, aka, disguise and other real-life Singapore stories behind Singaporean excellence?

Fasten your seat belt, enjoy the “hilarious Singapore story” which will demonstrate the Real Life Example of Hirak Rajar Deshe, an Indian Bengali dystopian fantasy musical film, directed by eminent film-director, writer, illustrator, lyricist, calligrapher, music composer, Shri Satyajit Ray.

When Goopy and Bagha learn about Hirak Raja’s tyranny …

For wisdom, refer to Mr. Dmitry Muratov Nobel Prize lecture “Antidote against tyranny” and then (many will be convinced to) nominate Singaporean Mr. Jolovan Wham for Nobel Peace Prize.

Mr. Jolovan Wham deserves to be nominated for Nobel Peace Prize, because he did great works to let the world get a glimpse of The Real Singapore — NOT [as advertised & perceived] the glittering, transparent, least corrupt, democratic Singapore.

Mr. Jolovan Wham deserves to be nominated for Nobel Peace Prize, particularly after…

Please do Google Search for more literature on the interesting and insightful topics about Singapore, which are lesser known, but we all need to know.

Mr. Jolovan Wham has highlighted the Facts of Singapore [but the Singaporean Leadership often points fingers at the “governance of other countries” to hide Real Stories of Singapore].

Is it so important?

Yes. It is.

Not sure yet, why Nobel for Mr. Jolovan?

Okay, no problem. Let’s explore further about the great works of Mr. Jolovan Wham😊

Smiling is Good for Health.
Promoting 😊Smiles is Important in Singapore where Singaporean Oligarchs and Ministers make millions $, while many ordinary Singaporean Citizens suffers from Food Insecurity.

Why it’s so sensitive to Singaporean Government and important for countries like India, Myanmar, China, …?

Because, just as usual, habitually, Singaporean PM Lee & Co. often try to advertise (using Mass Medias, Think Tanks, etc.) the wrong-information or half-truths (half-truths are more dangerous than lies).

Example?

Just recently, Singaporean PM Lee talked ill and half truths about India to advertise about the goodness of Singapore, and New Delhi summoned Singaporean envoy Simon Wong.

half truths

Indian MPs (Members of Parliament) vs. Singaporean MPs

What’s the #number1 reason that:

Generally, “Singapore’s (decades long ruling political party) PAP Party’s MPs & Ministers” DON’T get convicted in Singapore or DON’T have any criminal/civil cases pending in Singapore?

Only a few small news-media write about Singapore’s Governance (including Law & Justice) System in Practice.

Singaporean PM Lee talked ill and half truths about India to advertise about the goodness of Singapore, and New Delhi summoned Singaporean envoy Simon Wong

Was it Money Matters behind PM Lee’s Frustrations?

“India made a Singaporean company bleed $16 billion in a day

- by Vikrant Thardak, February 17, 2022, in Indo-Pacific

Can it be also linked to Parliamentary Affairs of Singapore

Given the ongoing parliamentary affairs of Singapore, does Singaporean PM’s “this half-truth remark about India” has anything to do with:

Mr. Pritam Singh and his Punjabi ancestry, linked with India”?

Time for Critical Evaluation: Named to Demean & Defame?

Now rename, revert back to Honor … now look beyond India. “Little India” or Majestic Great India?

That will reduce any “indirect/direct intention of any person” to belittle India, Indians and Indian origin people.

Is Promoting Smiles in Singapore Illegal?

https://www.straitstimes.comSingaporean Government Newspaper

The Strait Times reported on Feb 25, 2022 — “SINGAPORE — Activist Jolovan Wham was fined $3,000 on Friday (Feb 25) over an unlawful assembly”.

Don’t know “if or why” promoting smiles in Singapore is illegal/unlawful; for further information can refer to Singapore Prime Minister’s Office (PMO Singapore) or any other news agencies who have reported the interesting events.

Bonded Slavery in Singapore — even after death!!!

Surprised to hear about this?

Refer to: Human Organ Transplant Act — Ministry of Health (Singapore)

In short, many poor Singaporean and Permanent Residents (PR) of Singapore will reasonably be scared about the Singaporean Laws being used/misused to get their organs harvested. Why?

To learn more, we can do some Google Search: “how this Law can be (or, has been) used/misused inhumanly in Singapore”.

Reputation Management:

Please also take a note that some (digital/online) contents will always be disappearing (and not show-up in the Google Search) because of the Reputation Management initiatives of Singapore.

* A separate article will explore these topics in detail.

Ugly / beautiful” issues of Singapore w.r.t. India & Myanmar

Singapore’s Attractive Light & Shadow Shows Are Over.

Credentials or Advertorials?

We need to compare & analyze from all aspects for better understanding of “transparent least corrupt” Singapore.

Singapore’s “Ugly / Beautiful” issues need “immediate” independent review and impartial reporting worldwide.

In spite of rigorous reputation management (by Singaporean Gov & Co) what’s the record of Singapore on World Press Freedom Index?

Singapore — coloured black — Very Bad

https://rsf.org/en/singapore

Singapore has been coloured black on the World Press Freedom Index map since 2020, meaning the situation there is now is classified as “very bad”.

Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong’s government is always quick to sue critical journalists, apply pressure to make them unemployable, or even force them to leave the country.

Defamation suits are common and may sometimes be accompanied by a sedition charge that is punishable by up to seven years in prison.

The political control is coupled with an economic straitjacket.

Two business groups control all of Singapore’s print and broadcast media. One, MediaCorp, is owned by a state investment company. The other, Singapore Press Holdings, is supposedly privately-owned but the government appoints those who run it.

How Good is Singapore to Sponsor?

Singapore is Excellent in Sponsoring a few — special ones.

Singaporean Government & Co are GENEROUS while it comes to sponsoring special Think Tanks, select foreign universities, nice news agencies, and a few NGOs like Transparency International, etc.

  • Transparency International, et al: “Least Corrupt Transparent Singapore”.
  • But: https://rsf.org/en/singapore : Singapore has been coloured black … is classified as “very bad”.

Singaporean Operating System in “Practice”

A Little More Background of Singaporean Operating System

Bruegel Annual Event 2020:

Two Qs were raised online to Mr Tharman Shanmugaratnam (then, Senior Minister Singapore) after his presentation on 1 Sept 2020.

The issue raised in the first Q:

“How easily Singapore’s GovTech CorpPass [ACRA/mom] can be misused by Singaporeans to hijack foreign [non-Singaporean] owned companies [Registered] in Singapore to conduct illegal businesses etc etc?”

has Global Adverse Impact => Frauds … Crime

Bruegel and German Council On Foreign Relations

This is part of my comment on LinkedIn Post of German Council On Foreign Relations : https://www.linkedin.com/posts/german-council-on-foreign-relations_we-are-pleased-to-announce-that-our-board-ugcPost-6907966136370257920-aZkP

It will be good starting point if German Council on Foreign Relations takes note and facilitates the new Director & CEO, Dr. Guntram Wolff to do some good work on Singapore which possibly he was unable to do

[due to best reasons known to Dr. Wolff, Bruegel and Singapore Government]

while he worked in Bruegel (Brussels, Belgium) and are pending since 2020 [Bruegel Annual Event 2020].

Future of Singapore Financial & Logistics Hub

How can “Singapore’s Secrets” remain SECRET henceforth?

Many Governments (it’s alleged including Singapore Gov) used Israeli SPYWARE; and the Data — including “Dubious Financial & Business Info” — very likely are now with 3rd Parties who will be more than happy to trade those “Data” with Government of Russia, and others.

It will be equally interesting to see:

How the Advertorials from Bloomberg, Transparency International et. al. and vested Western Capitalists & Politicians help save the Grand glittering, transparent, LEAST CORRUPT, Democratic Singapore getting exposed and diminished quickly?

Resource-less Singapore & diminishing City State

Singapore — for it’s survival and growth — needs:

  • Imported Natural Resources;
  • Foreign Labor of all Level; and
  • Foreign Money of ALL color (while USA & Friends cooperate, partner and weaponize “using Economic Sanctions” for mutual benefits).

History has many examples:

Under “undue patronage” some cities do prosper fast, then diminish quickly and become almost like a Ghost City.

In Short — What is the Future of Singapore?

Is financial & logistical hub in Singapore going to diminish soon?

— If so, how soon?
These are no longer irrelevant questions.

Whoever is still sleep-walking in transparent least corrupt democratic Singapore will soon wake-up unpleasantly Surprised!!!

Nominate Jolovan Wham for Nobel Peace Prize: Spread Awareness About Real Singapore.

Nobel for Singaporean Mr. Jovan Wham

Mr. Jovan has drawn world’s attention to real Singapore — which world need to know for the good of humankind, and peace & prosperity of the region. And, Singapore, it’s Dynastic Regime and Oligarchs prospered, while many ordinary Singaporeans still suffer from Food Insecurity and millions of people in other countries got poorer and poorer.

These wrong-doings need to stop.

Singapore Sling — Disguise

Like Singapore Sling — DISGUISE — is both the ‘Alter Ego’ and “Nemesis” of ‘Singaporean Operating System in Practice’ to achieve Singapore’s excellence!!!

  • Transparency International, et al: “Least Corrupt Transparent Singapore”.
  • But: https://rsf.org/en/singapore : Singapore has been coloured black … is classified as “very bad”.

Whoever is still sleep-walking in transparent least corrupt democratic Singapore will soon wake-up unpleasantly Surprised!!!

Nominate Mr. Jolovan Wham for Nobel Prize; spread the Factual Awareness about Singapore.

About Me, Dr, Madhab Paul — the Generalist?

I have been in the region for over 15 years after a brief stint in Nigeria(Africa). Prior to that I worked — in various capacities — for a Government of India Enterprise based in New Delhi.

I am an Indian engineer (PhD) and businessman who started getting curious and started knowing more about Singapore (and Singaporean Business Models), and the Region, [about which I also got a good introduction at the Asian Institute of Management (AIM), Philippines, while studying my full-time Masters in Management during 2005–2006].

I believe in the potential of the Prosperity in Myanmar; peace and prosperity that can overflow from Myanmar to Thailand, India, Cambodia and beyond. [Info: India shares maritime border also with Myanmar & Thailand.]
