Yes, Singapore president is an Indian.
Dazzling mentioned that Rania's gala dress show 1 shoulder is inappropriate, I think it isn't true. I think it's quite OK for Rania's gala dress in S'pore gala dinner.

What about the president's wife? is she of Indian descent as well? I noticed that she needs help while walking, she was holding a woman's hand in one picture yesterday and there was that picture of Queen Rania's arm around her as well. Is she unwell or is it a weight-related issue?

Thanks s_yin.

Here's a profile of the Singapore President

I can't find much about his wife, Urmila Nandey. Although the love story between them is very romantic. She is 76 though (she does not look it!) so I'm not surprised if she needs a bit of assistance every now and again!

I agree, there is absolutely nothing wrong with Rania showing a tiny bit of bare shoulder in that top, she looks very elegant and chic as always. If she had her cleavage on display then yes it would shock me as she is a muslim woman but really what is the big deal here?

Not sure about the big black belt..although I can understand that she wants to create a separating point for the top and the skirt. She certainly likes her belts and seems to wear them with just about everything.

As for her demeanour she seems fine to me, you can't be smiling inanely at the camera every single second. The cameras are taking pictures of you all the time and there will be moments when they will catch you in what might be called "repose" when you face is fairly neutral.

I'm sure Rania has had quite a difficult time with her broken ankle, I understand breaking ankles and wrists hurt much more than other bones. I feel sorry for her having to travel around from one place to the next, it's exhausting enough when you are fit let alone when you are probably feeling a pretty fragile and sore.

I hope she is fully recovered now.

Amman, Nov. 22 (Petra)—President of Singapore S. R. Nathan and spouse on Wednesday wrapped up a five day official visit to Jordan upon an invitation from Their Majesties King Abdullah II and Queen Rania. Petra

Its too bad there wasn't a second gala hosted by the guests. But not to despair, with more high profile guests coming to Jordan and another state visit, I think we can look forward to some more glamour yet.
