Late Mr Kishore Lala Ex of La California.


He was an official of Sindhi Association of Southern California and also Vice President of Alliance of Sindhi Associations of Americas, Inc (ASAA now known as AGSA or Alliance of Global Sindhi Associations, Inc.) In early 2006, at the recommendation of a mutual friend Mr Mohan Dadlani, also an official of Sindhi Association of southern California, late Mr Kishore Lala came together with Mr Prem Lalvani, ASAA Chairman, to see Arjan Daswani at Singapore and after discussions, Arjan had agreed to serve as an Honorary Co-ordinator on ASAA’s proposed International Sindhi Sammelan Singapore July 2007. Later in the same year late Dada Govind L Chandiramani of Mumbai approached Arjan Daswani requesting him to put his version of Romanized Sindhi Script to the delegates visiting the said Sammelan, to get their general approval or the feedback. Arjan called late Mr Kishore Lala over phone to seek opinion and consent. Late Mr Kishore not only consented on same but also assured Arjan of ASAA’s support on the presentation. In early 2007 late Mr Kishore Lala and Mr Prem Lalvani came again to Singapore to inspect the progress made on the preparation of the said Sammelan. But sadly Mr Kishore Lala left for his heavenly abode few days before and could not attend the said Sammelan, where he was missed very much. He had sent his pre-written speech over email which was read out from the stage by ASAA’s the then President Mrs Vimla Tewani. May God keep his soul in Eternal peace!
