From the 1930s to 1965, discussions about modernisation, race and civic responsibility were as common as they are today. The youth of colonial Singapore wrote passionately about these issues, seeking to enkindle the idea of a nation that did not yet exist. The poetry and stories that encapsulate how they saw Singapore have become more, not less, relevant. In Who Are You My Country?, the youth of modern Singapore build on those stories and use them to create a vision for what our post-SG50 nation might look like. As the historical publications were to those students of the past, this anthology also hopes to be a shared space for the collective imagination of Singapore.
