Kuldip Singh Rupra OBE (1958 - 1961)

After my schooling at ESS, I came to England in 1961 for higher studies. I graduated in Electronic Engineering and secured employment with a local semi-conductor manufacturer. I embarked on a career specialising in semi-conductor research and subsequently worked for another local company with an international brief as Chief Engineer. Well satisfied with my achievements I retired in1993 at the age of 50 years.

I then worked with local authorities in Education, Employment and various other fields. I was a member and later Chairman of Bedford Race Equality Council. I also chaired the BME Network East of England, now MENTER.

During my time at the Prince’s Trust, I served as a board member and as a mentor for young business entrepreneurs from disadvantaged backgrounds. I monitored race relations in prisons, a challenging environment at the best of times. I was associated with the erection of the Guru Nanak Gurudwara in Bedford from its inception to the final stages.

I earned my keep during my retirement, working with consumer electronics. I have had the fortune of travelling the world. My most memorable times were spent in the snowy slopes in Finland and the orderly but crowded streets of Tokyo.

I now enjoy spending time with my six beloved grand-children. I am discovering huge reserves of patience and tolerance that I thought I never had. In June of 2011, I was awarded the OBE for services to the Black and Minority Ethnic community in the East of England.

- As of May 2017
