Some sad news about Kanwar Manjit Singh having passed away

Kanwar Manjit Singh

Lefroy 1965.

House Captain.

Left for his heavenly abode on Wednesday,6th December 2023.

Also known as the BULL.He was so strong in school, that he would break the wooden cupboards in our dorms with his bare fists.He would lift juniors from their belts with his four fingers.

Loved drinking condensed milk, would drink a can in one shot, and later on in life could drink a bottle of Rum in one sitting.

Passed out from St Stephen’s, and later taught there too.

Joined the IAS and held many important posts in the GOI.His last being the Registrar of Delhi University.

PS: a change in his profile..it was IAAS..audit & account service.

    Sad to hear about the demise of Bull. He was quite a gentle fellow that belied his bulk and always treated us juniors with compassion. He never “whacked” me despite having caught me breaking the rules several times. Also remember how he was a heck of a sprinter in the 100 yards but could not run a marathon to save his life. Wonderful guy, RIP Bull. You will be fondly remembered.

    That is really Very sad . A great person who fed us a lot of jokes and information . He had a vast memory which I really admired . Our deepest condolences to his family

    Shocking news about his passing away. Right that we called him ‘Bull’ in school because really he was a big man then. Did well in life and always kept in touch with his classmates. Met him a few times in Delhi and Noida. He will surely be missed by his family and friends. Will miss him but will always be fondly remembered. Rest in peace ‘Bull’
