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.
