It was shockingly sad to hear the news of the demise of the father, founder, visionary of the South Asia Foundation Ambassador Madanjeet Singh. I was fortunate to meet him once in France and I was deeeply touched by his vision, enthusiasm, dedication and great commitment to make the world especially South Asia a better place for all of us but I am very unfortunate that I will not be able to see him again and to be influenced towards his ideals.
Please accept my deepest and profound sympathies on the demise of this great personality. His lost is a great loss to all of us. At this difficult time, I am sharing the grief you are undergoing and as the best honour I can give to him, I am committed to carry forward his initiatives, programmes and ideals to help realise his dreams. Please accept my inability to visit you personally to give my last respect to Ambassidor Madanjeet Singh.
