About the author (2010)

Harsimran Singh immigrated to the United States in 1973. Although a young man at the time, his interest in writing was already strongly formed, as was his desire to write books that would be as valuable to read, as they were satisfying to write. Dr. Singh’s goal is to help others by revealing what others have not, with his own life experience as his primary resource.
