In the short time that we spent with Lord Indarjit and Lady Singh, I was captivated by their personas and pleasant attitude, cordial nature and typical English hospitality,” says Harjinder Singh Kukreja who accompanied his wife, Harkirat Kaur Kukreja to the House of Lords.
Lord Indarjit Singh acknowledged the Kukreja family for their world travels and subtle yet interesting mannerisms in which they promote Sikh family life. In particular he congratulated Harkirat Kaur Kukreja for being a wonderful mother and said that the mother holds the key to where and what future generations will accomplish.
