The Iron Man Founding Father of Modern Singapore is dead.

Lee Kwan Yew is pretty much responsible for the Singapore of today. It was just a fishing village when he took over in 1965, and had become one of the most efficient megapolises in the world when he retired in 1990. Lee can be credited, more or less single handedly for the transformation.

He was also responsible for the super strict discipline and harsh punishments in Singapore. Whatever some people may say, such draconian laws always make a place worth living in for law abiding citizens.

One of the greatest nation builders ever. RIP

He had some very interesting thoughts about India, its development and its role in Asia. But it fell on deaf ears as far as Indian leaders were concerned.
