MALAYSIA-IN MEMORY-KELVINDER SINGH: Kelvinder Singh, who joined the Malaysian police force as a support constable last year, died in a motorcycle accident while on the way to work in Johor today (18 Feb 2015).

Kelvinder, 25, was a passionate sportsperson and an active Sikh volunteer.

Among others, he was a live wire for the team from Gurdwara Sahib Pulapol, Kuala Lumpur, that takes part in the annual Holla Mahalla games.

He had followed the footsteps of his dad, Cop Hardial Singh, by joining the police force.

All those who know him spoke of his warm and approachable personality. He gets along handsomely with everyone, and is ever helpful.

“You were such an amazing and wonderful person. And there is always a smile on your face no matter how bad the situation!” wrote Kamal Jit in her Facebook posting.

Sikh Naujawan Sabha Malaysia (SNSM) jathedar Pavandeep Singh told Asia Samachar that Kelvinder was a tireless sevadar (volunteer), getting involved on many fronts.

“At Holla Mahala games, he would take charge of the long jump competition. I just met him on Friday to discuss the next games. He used to drive the Sabha van for the Sunday hospital free food service. He used to come forward for logistics duties. He was such a wonderful person,” he said.

Ravinder Kaur, an active volunteer at Gurdwara Sahib Pulapol, recalled that Kelvin used to spend time at her house in his younger days.

In her Facebook posting, she wrote: “I learnt so many things from a simple beautiful soul like you, betaji…Thank you, betaji, for teaching me how important the power of influence is and how we must use it positively. You thought me how beautiful it is to see a young mind bloom in positivity. You thought me that if God has blessed me with the power to influence a young mind, let it be through love.”

Hargobind Singh, founder of the Anhad band and another active Sikh youth in Kuala Lumpur, had this to say: “Today, I lose another friend. To all my brothers using motorcycles, please ride with extra care. We’re losing too many of you.”

Kelvinder was creamated today at the Loke Yew Crematoriam. – ASIA SAMACHAR (18 Feb 2015)
