I remember there was incident during thaipusan last time... Maybe because of that, they don't want to make it public holiday.

But isn't thaipusam celebrated by tamils instead of indians? I can't tell the difference
Thaipusam mainly a Tamil one. And Thaipusam here is different from India.
Thaipusam celebrations in Singapore and Malaysia is different.
You seldom see North Indians and Indians from Indian taking part

Most Chinese celebrate Easter, Christmas and Vesak Day. Hardly see Eurasians celebrating Easter and Christmas and Indians celebrating Vesak Day since most Indians are Hindus.

Thaipusam or Tamil/Sikh New Year on April 14 or 15 or Guru Nanak's bithday in November for the Sikhs

I Think the New Year would be better as it encompasses both for the Sikhs and Tamils plus it's traditionally a New Year for Thais and other Asian countries

You are talking about 2 groups - Tamils and Sikhs who have major contributions to Singapore throughout the 2 centuries..
