One fine day, Singapore Prime Minister Goh Chok Tong visited India to negotiate trade terms.
During the lunch break, India Prime Minister suggested taking PM Goh for a spin in his helicopter and view India’s city lifestyle.
As PM Goh was enjoying the bird’s eye view from above, he noticed an overpopulated village with unhygienic living conditions. A man was even shitting in his backyard.
PM Goh was fast to comment how unsightly it is and that Indian people are so uncivilised. India’s PM was so humiliated and vowed to himself that he’ll humiliate PM Goh when he gets to visit S’pore.
When he really did visit S’pore the following month, PM Goh too offered him a ride in his helicopter to see the Singaporean lifestyle.
For a whole hour, India’s PM was trying to spot a fault. Finally he saw a place where people literally littered the streets, and as he had a closer look, he even noticed a man shitting on the grass verge. He quickly pointed out to PM Goh about it and said, "You said Singapore was nothing like India. How do you account for this?"
PM Goh looked closer, smiled and replied "Aaahhh… we called that place – Little India".
