For India to become the most powerful country:

The belief that in the next 20-25 years, India could be the most powerful country of the world along with USA and China is growing stronger world wide. However there appears to be very little awareness among Indians or our government on this aspect.

A web site has been launched exclusively to convince people and spread awareness on this subject. Creating such awareness is the first step towards achieving that goal.

What is the procedure for applying for PR(Permanent Residence) to Singapore ?

PR at Singapore is unlike Canada and Australia where a PR can be obtained prior to taking up a job in that country. An Employment Pass (EP) is the first requirement. On obtaining a job, an EP is automatically given. After coming to Singapore, a separate application has to be filed for the PR. PR is granted on a case-by-case basis based on the candidate's qualifications, area of expertise and other factors. EP is enough to work in Singapore. PR is not a must.

For further details:

Note: The above details are personal opinions. If anybody else is interested in adding more details, they are welcome.
