Singh was particularly thrilled when the Rector called him in to say that despite 170 young people being at the College, the staff had decided to give him the Leadership Award for changing the College in the two years that he was there, he said. “Singh has received so many accolades from many organisations that he is clearly a role model for all of us,” said Rafique Jajbhay of the School as he introduced Singh. Singh dedicated his award to the women who had stood behind the successes of many men, in his case his wife and mother, as he requested a popular Hindi song dedicated to mothers to be played during the proceedings.
Since his retirement from teaching, Singh has been very active in continuing his involvement in sport, cultural and religious affairs for many decades.He was instrumental in founding the Hindu Coordinating Council more than 20 years ago. The organisation hosts the highly successful Shivarathri Yatra and Diwali Festival in the mainly Indian suburb of Lenasia each year. (PTI)
