  1. Dr Mehar is my first doctor when I join Smc 1992. He taught me all the work. I work him almost 10yrs.His favorite hot Nescafe every morning.He is such a loving and caring person. He is my favorite doc too.I can’t forget all the sweet memories threw out the year. RIP Dr Mehar

  2. With deep regret my family and me are saddened to hear this. Though at this ripe age one have to go back from where we belong. Dr. Mehar was one of the First Sikhs in the Ministry of Health to raise to the position. My children are very found of him especially when they meet him at the Gurdwara. He will always be fondly remembered by us the Bains Family. May you Dr. Ajeet remain strong and may Waheguru give you all the strength to endure this painful moments of life being together over half a century.

  3. I am not a Sikh (apologies, in fact I’m an atheist Jew), but I just wanted to add a comment. I got to know Dr Gill because his son, Amar-Singh, is a very close friend from Oxford student days. I spent a couple of months in KL at the end of our first year, and Mehar and Ajeet were the most wonderfully kind and generous hosts. Ajeet cooked the tastiest Sarson ka Saag dish in Malaysia (if not the world). Mehar had a soft voice that one had to strain to hear, but would occasionally descend into fits of giggles. He drove us all around Malaysia because at that time (in the early 80s) he was working on a project to eradicate malaria. Each weekend there seemed to be a different family wedding to attend; these were hugely enjoyable events, if somewhat damaging to the liver. Over the years Amar-Singh has kept me informed about his family news. His father was a great man, and I would like to express my deepest sympathies to Ajeet Kaur and to Ena Kaur.

  4. Condolences to his family and pray his soul rest with WaheGuru. Bless all

    Remember to claim RM3K Funeral Grant from Pension Dept as he was a pensioner when changing name of his pension beneficiary to his life partner wife.
