Nope, it isn’t what you are thinking. This is an award-winning documentary about the ups and downs of the Chinatown community in Calcutta (Kolkata) and how the Indo-Chinese war in 1962 changed their lives.

BRAIN DRAIN (57% go to Singapore)

In January, the Najib administration had set up Talent Corporation to revive to revive the nation’s stagnating economy.

A brain drain is depriving Malaysia of talent, and accounts for a third of the country’s one-million strong diaspora, according to the World Bank Economic Monitor.

Singapore alone has absorbed 57per cent of these departing educated workers.

Actually Malaysia is a better place as only 6% of its people are paying income tax. That’s why the government wanted to introduce GST so that it could tax everyone 24/7, including a child paying for a Sundae at McDonald’s.

Interesting documentary! I didn’t know that there was a Chinese community in India, they even speak with the local accent! Our very own Fat Mama will be gone soon enough.
