I remember the time when tall buildings fascinated me and my dad’s tool kit was my best friend. I remember how I had a place for gadgets and mega structures in my heart when that bug in me would do nothing but prompt me to open the toys that were brought for me to play with and would play Lego blocks building tall structures. I remember how my mom and dad realized my field of interest and how this fascination to know about the inside, got me here. I remember where I was and where I am now with everything that motivated me in between – This is ME!
I was a little naughty kid ‘Ramandeep Singh’ who was as funny as a clown and as observant as a microscope. With the good words around for the Akal Academy, Muktsar my well read family with my parents being Lecturers at Govt. Schools admitted me to this Academy, the best that could have ever happened to me! I remember how magnificent my life was at Akal Academy, the way this school changed my life and motivated me with the Spiritual and Academic studies as well.
This school in short made me a gentleman, one instilled with all good qualities and a SIKH with values, so much so that I got baptized in class 10thalongwith my sister and could feel the power to conquer the world within. With my interest in being an engineer, my dreams were no less challenging.
I always studied independently – upkeeping with Akal Academies’ No-Tuitions culture I too never took any external academic support even for my entrance examinations including IELTS where I scored a smashing 8.5 score and was also offered a job, but keeping the faith in myself I always wanted to go study and then work. I then applied for engineering in Canada and got through it after which I interned with Honda in Canada before landing into a full-time job with TSUBAKI CANADA LTD. – a Japanese Auto Part Maker Company, where I worked as Quality Supervisor for 4 years before taking the bold call of quitting the job to pursue my independent business – the world of mega structures and more!
I then took the leap of faith backed by my strong belief in Almighty – I gave up this job and moved into Real Estate sector, where, now I am buying, selling and developing land & beautiful homes. My aim was always to put myself into a position wherein I could do something on myself and not a Job.
I am very happy that god has always helped me in all my endeavors so far and shall continue to be on my side for the rest of my life. In 2009 I received Canada’s PR status and with Almighty’s grace this year (2013) I have received citizenship and have made a beautiful house in Brampton.
With such a blessed life, I dedicate myself to The Kalgidhar Trust, Baru Sahib for being a guide in my life, for giving me this lifestyle and this confidence to face the world this far from my hometown and making me a real estate master!
