This information, in my opinion and analysis, would be useful in the Singapore context for Social Studies (SS, Syllabus 2204, the outgoing syllabus) and General Paper (Syllabus 8807 – more immediately Application Question or Essay/Paper 1). Generally, it may be helpful for students taking English since Text 3 (Paper 2) of the 1128 syllabus is ‘a non-narrative text’.
The content comes from the book ‘Indians’ (published 2015) by Vineeta Sinha (locally based sociologist). It would be useful for the topic of Social Cohesion and Harmony – with related concepts (SS syllabus document) being: discrimination, compromise and mutual accommodation, common space, minority rights, and integration. The pages are:
- 47 to 48
- 54 to 55
- 62 to 63 (useful for SS, 2267 Syllabus – Blue coloured textbook)
- 88 to 90
