PSA, or the Port of Singapore Authority, is one of the leading port operators in the world. It played a vital role in Singapore’s marine trade handling industry, which is a crucial part of the country’s economy given its size and lack of natural resources.

I want to sink into a plush couch with a promise of the long summer vacations that the Indian summer bestows on school children; a tumbler of lime juice in hand, the sweet drum roll of 21st century Fox heralding a riveting movie and the sheer joy of inventing cricket strategies for the evening game in the gully.
It’s a public holiday today in South India. It seems the birds are having a better time than me.
