Let's not sanitise Little India

This article is more than 12 months old


Organising and sanitising every part of the country is the usual thought in Singapore, but we must keep in mind that if we continue doing this, we would lose the flavour and culture of Singapore ("Little India needs sprucing up" by Mr Roy Goh Hin Soon; Dec 10).

Little India, Chinatown and Geylang Serai should be different from one another.

Sometimes, being not so organised is attractive. Little India's "disorganised state"can be a draw.

Tourists would remember this and share it when they return home.

This can only be a good thing. While safety must always be a concern, let us not sanitise and organise Little India and other such places, and turn them into any other tourist location.
