I am most pleased to inform the Asia Samachar that the Malaysian Indian Congress (MIC) plans to celebrate the 70th year anniversary of its founding, and wishes to honour all the past Presidents of MIC.
As for the Presidents who have passed on, the MIC plans to honour the next of kin or any other surviving member of the respective families at the event. The MIC wishes, therefore, to have their addresses including e-mail and home addresses as well as mobile / landline numbers in order to contact them easily.
We are having difficulties to trace the family of Sardar Budh Singh, a former railway clerk who became the second President of the Malaysian Indian Congress (MIC) during the period 1947-1950. He left Malaya to settle down in Punjab, and passed away not long thereafter. I understand from one source that his daughter-in-law is residing in Canada, but I cannot verify this.
I wonder if you could kindly help trace the family members of Budh Singh. One of the ways of doing this might be for you to kindly post a notice on your website, seeking information.
Thanking you very much in eager anticipation of a positive response from your side.
