K.P.Singh, an architect by training, is known for his precise, detailed pen-and-ink drawings of historic architecture and monuments in Indiana and around the world. His work is on display in private and public collections in at least 25 countries
Beside being referred to as an Architect, Artist, Author, Writer, Poet, International Citizen, Hoosier Sikh, and Community Volunteer over the years, I have had the distinct honor to be an passionte advocate:
Advocate for Architerctual and Cultural Presevation as our common heritage; Identification, Recognition, and Celebration of all forms and spectrums of Human Diversity as our new frontier of incredible opportunity; Creating a place for Arts, Culture, and Matters of Spirit in our lives and Community Fabric; Building Bridges and Sharing Ideas to improve our Race and Community Relations; expanding Multi-Cultural Perspective and Interfaith Dialogue for much-needed and welcome understanding and to dispel ignorance, issues of mistaken identity, cultural violence and hate crimes; and together enhancing our individual and collective gifts and create a greater sense of our well-being and peace.
I consider all of these as "New Frontiers at our Doorsteps." Our challenge is to discover and harness their full power and promise for the benefit of our communities and humanity. We have a great opportunity to participate and witness this emerging new Renaisance of Spirit for our times. Who could have imagined that we would be at our present unimagined crossroads? Now, we can see daring new thresholds awaiting to be crossed to yet other areas of the undreamt and impossible, perhaps within the lifetime of our children. Our tryst with destiny is full of hope and we have the privilege to invest our talents and labors, heart and soul, and vision and wisdom to usher a new American dawn for generations that follow us.
The strides that we have together made testify to our commitment. Each of us have something to give. I have been fortunate to have had the opportunity to share my gifts and spirit and for the response that I have received from the community and state that I have served. I have been in the USA since 1965 and a proud resident of Indiana since 1967.
I have had my share of tough times along the way and so also memorable moments being the receipient of the Sagamore of the Wabash, the highest award conferred by the State of Indiana on its citizens, the International Citizen of the Year, and invitation to share my artwork and writings in a book: The Art and Spirit of K.P. Singh. I am grateful for my journey and look to the future with contagious optimism.
