Exciting news as Parminder Singh was one of my first mentors when I worked at MSFT. He’s a Gursikh guy who’s a role model for all aspiring Sikhs. He gets a special mention here on Sikh Swim because he used to work as a lifeguard. Go Parminder Singh!

    Video: Meet the Sikhs

    Another good “Sikh Awareness” video that was recently approved as supplemental material for all California Public Schools.

    “Meet the Sikhs” is a short video, produced in 2005 by the Public Broadcasting station KVIE (TV Channels 6 & 7, Sacramento). It was telecast by the KVIE numerous times. After a successful Legal and Social review in 2006, the video was included in the list of approved Supplemental Instructional Materials for California’s Public Schools. Dr. David Hosley, the General Manager of the KVIE, kindly agreed that the video may be used for educational purposes free of charge.

    Folks, I knew Navneet when he was just a regular guy. After rocketing to the international stage in recent years through dedicated sewa, he’s now adding another notch to his belt by becoming one of the best and brightest leaders in America. Congratulations Navneet! Whether you like it or not, you are a role model for all Americans. Keep rockin’ the house!

    Queens, New York, USA – Navneet Singh Narula, a volunteer and Director of United Sikhs settled in Atlanta USA, is no stranger to winning top honors and awards. In the rarefied air of Fortune 100 global business, where conformity is the norm, Narula has set himself apart as a top corporate executive for one of the world’s largest management and IT consulting firm and stands tall as an authority on business leadership, corporate citizenship and a community service leader in America.
