Dear A.S.S. Editor

The National Heritage Board (NHB) today launch their fist official heritage trail for Little India. Would like to congratulate NHB for the launch of the 200 year old historic Little India enclave.

This will finally bring to life the facet of Little India, that it is more than just the Tekka market, Mustafa Centre and area where lots of foreign workers from India and Bangladesh gather every weekend. There are many other attractions in Little India with historic significance, namely the Mahatma Gandhi Memorial, Sri Veeramakaliamman temple, Racecourse Road, an area that once served as a rifle range, a polo field and a golf course in the 1870s to 1890s and Foochow Methodist Church.

This is a proud moment to Indian community, who had always traditionally been associated with Little India. Good job to NHB for doing their job.
