Nirmal Singh is a former Business Executive and Professor, Chair Operations Management & Dean Administrative Staff College of India. A past President of Connecticut Sikh Association, he has been working for several years on sharing information about the Sikh faith, culture and values in the contemporary setting with the larger American community through promoting and participation in dialogues, discussion groups, seminars, events, media appearances and writing etc.
Reviewing his book “Exploring Sikh Spirituality & the Paradox of their Stereotyping in Contemporary American Setting” published (2003) by Sanbun, New Delhi, Dr Noel Q King wrote:
“The writer is one of those jewels in the diadem of the Gurus. He has faithfully kept up his prayers and studies throughout a long life as a soldier and a representative of his nation abroad. Now he continues his sewa to the entire universe by giving us a very clear statement about what Sikh spirituality and faith can mean in spiritual, ethical and social issues confronting us. In eleven chapters he tells us of the beginnings and the Diaspora of the Sikhs; their teachings on life, death, purpose and emancipation from the round of incarnation. He illuminates their experience of suffering and human travail and their ministry to all human beings and Nature; going on from the meaning of the holy books and music, to our ways of spirituality, he tells us various ways the Sikhs can face the stereotyping and victimization that has so grossly and unfairly come to bear upon them in these last years. I was particularly impressed by his use of local history, contemporary happening and Sikh memories of the past and the brilliance of the practical measures he proposes. Sardar Nirmal Singh’s analysis is rooted in scripture and is sensitive to the questions vexing the minds of our youth.”
