Condolence Message: On sudden demise of Prof. S.P. Singh

Dear Friends,

In deep grief, I have to inform you that Prof. S.P, Singh ex- Principal of College of Commerce and one of the Patrons of Bihar Brains died on April 22, 2009. His sudden demise is a heavy loss to BiharBrains Society and personally to me. Prof. S. P.Singh was actively involved with us since start of the organization. He supported us and was key player at local level. He played significant role in our IISER demand movement. Recently we organized second Bihar Science Conference in the college of commerce for which he was one of the patrons.

During his (more than 15 years) tenure as Principal, College of commerce progressed a lot; I remembered when he along with his colleagues mate took a pain to show me all the departments of the college in my last India visit. He was asking “Bibhuti, can you visualize the change in the college". I could feel his sentiments with the college and was quite impressed from his work. He will be remembered for his great service to the society. Let me hats of on his great service.

On behalf of BiharBrains(BBrains Development Society), I express my deep condolence to the bereaved family.
May God give peace to his soul!

Bibhuti Bikramaditya
