RIP: Shri Shamsunder Jaisingh:

Born on November 09, 1937 he was a man with a vision. Having lost his parents at an early age of fourteen, he took care of his large family of many siblings by commencing work very early in life. Though at that time his salary was only Rs 05, he saw to it that his house was always filled with an abundance of supplies and every single member of his family was well taken care of.

Mr. Shamsunder Jaisingh or 'Uncle' as everyone fondly addressed him had the midas touch of making Fortune smile upon everyone he associated with. After many years of hard work and rigorous efforts he became the first sole manufacturer of thinners and lacquers. He then ventured into many entrepreneurial endeavors; Colour Crafts, Veena Agencies, Vivid Agencies, Businessofcinema.com and last but not the least OASIS.

Shamsunder Jaisingh had the zest and the zeal to take on any project and turn it into a profitable venture. That was one of the reasons that whoever got associated with him always looked to him for solutions. He was always there to help his contemporaries as well as people who came to him asking for any kind of guidance. He was a generous, loving and a caring personality, who till his last day, took care of everyone.

A man who was all heart, left all of us teary eyed and he shall always be remembered. His going has created a void that shall never be filled because there was and there shall be no one like him.
The founder trustee of OASIS, Mr Shamsunder Jaisingh, passed away on February 04, 2014.  He was seventy six.

 

RIP: Shri. J.P. Singhal:
J.P. Singhal, born in 1934 was one of the most respected artists in the Indian art world. Born in a small village in Northern India he began painting at the tender age of sixteen in a culture and society where painting was not considered a good enough profession. As time passed by, from painting he took on to photography and a lot of this credit goes to the Late Show Man Raj Kapoor who pushed him to get into film photography and publicity. His first assignment was Raj Kapoor’s Satyam Shivam Sundaram and there was no looking back from that moment.

J. P. Singhal was the real man’s artist, a popular artist who brought a little bit of the real India into every home in the country. The moment his photographs came into the public eye, he began getting offers to design and shoot publicity campaigns for the Indian Film Industry. He did films like Tezaab, Border, Gajja Gamini, Benaras, well the list is endless. Many of today’s superstars shot to fame with his photographs.

J. P. Singhal was known for his distinct style, a way of making the subject seem unbelievably beautiful in a heartbreakingly romantic way. This talent made him a trend and it was said that if one wanted to become a star, they went to J. P. Singhal for their photographs. Actors, actresses, directors, producers all flocked around him and he began the second phase of his career, that of the photographer.

The founder trustee of OASIS, Shri J.P. Singhal, passed away on May 10, 2014.
