A Sikh Man in SG Police. Bang Cheng Hoo
This second part of the trilogy traces Sukhdev Singh’s nostalgic journey from his initial helplessness and shattered dreams, to resisting the lure of secret society membership and finally finding hope as a regular policeman.
Covering the period 1968 till 2003, here are interesting accounts and observations he gained while serving the people of Singapore without fear or favour as a policeman for 31 long years. Facing unemployment and frustrations as a retiree, Sukhdev highlights the plight of retired junior civil servants and non-commissioned officers from the SAF seeking new employment after retirement. Do they deserve such a life?
About the Author
This trilogy is the life story of a retired Singapore policeman, Sukhdev Singh Gill, a Hokkien-speaking Sikh—perhaps quite a wonder today, but not so in the days of pre-independent Singapore.
Sukhdev grew up in the 1950s under British colonial rule. Living in kampongs with neighbours of various races, he became proficient in the Hokkien dialect. This collection of his childhood memories ranges from the hilarious to heart-stopping escapades.
In the next two parts of this trilogy, Sukhdev shares his experiences over 30 years with the Singapore Police Force and life after retirement.
