Regret to inform that Minnie – Mohinderjit Singh – passed on

Dear All,

It is with deep regret I write to inform you that Mohinderjit Singh, Lefroy, 1949-1957 passed away this morning. Fondly known as Minnie (or Minijit Singh) by all, he was the second eldest in a family of  four brothers, the others being Ravijit, Daljit (Chikoo) and Inderjit (Badal). Their only sister, Amber, possessed the good looks that this family inherited. An attractive and personable looking family, they were fond of the outdoors, exceptionally athletic and spirited. All these four brothers and their sister were close to each other and lively folks leaving their mark wherever they went.

Mohinderjit Singh (Minnie).

Minnie was in School an excellent athlete, short distance sprints, formidable boxer and soccer player. He left a mark and was a redoubtable opponent. These attributes served him well while he was involved in the family stone quarry business located out of Barauli. I am informed that most of the red sandstone in and around Delhi emerged from their quarries. He was based in Bangkok for several years representing the family business interests with flair and considerable success.

Minnie suffered from a severe lung infection, not connected to Covid, which resulted in hospitalisation some weeks ago. It is most unfortunate but he did not recover and sadly passed away today. Our deepest condolences to the family.

Warmly

Vijay [Khurana]

    Sorry to hear the sad passing away of Minijit and Trivikam Singh. Both had been with me in School. Ravijit, too, who had passed away many years ago was with me. We had together started school from the prep school in chotta Simla. My condolences to both the families.

    Shocking!
    Minnie was my class mate & Lefroy House prefect in 1957.
    At the last OC Lunch in Delhi, I asked both his brothers, a Badam & Chico, about him, & from their response it appeared that Minnie wasn’t keeping too well. Little did I realise that he would leave us so soon.
    My heartfelt condolences to the family.
    May the Almighty grant eternal peace to the noble soul of my dear friend Minnie.
