This page is setup as a space to pay tribute to Harpreet and for his family to read in memory of him💕
A noble & brave soul, Harpreet Singh (30 year old, lovingly called Abhi) left for his heavenly abode after losing his battle with deadly brain tumour at Westmead Hospital on Wednesday, 22nd April. A very hard-working brave man who, just like every other student came to Australia 5 years ago with the dream of assisting his family after settling here, had to depart early.
Harpreet was an inspiration to all. He had all the plans to live a normal life and wanted to go back to India for natural treatments as soon as he got Australian Permanent Residency (PR), which he was expecting in January 2020. He kept working hard awaiting the PR and delaying the trip to India, totally unaware of the little time that he was left with. It was only when his condition worsened and he underwent 4th surgery in March, that he understood the grim reality and agreed to be air-lifted to India to be with his family, but fate had other plans for him. The night before he could fly to India, excitedly, he got up from the bed, and fell hard, which made him "unfit to fly" and his dream of going to India never got fulfilled. Look at the irony of fate! Yes, finally, Harpreet did get the reward of all his hard-work, of all those sleepless nights, of the time away from his family, yes, he got invite for PR in April, but he was not in the condition to enjoy the moment that he most awaited for for last 5 years. COVID-19 further complicated his family's arrival to Australia, but the mother finally managed to hold her son's hand before he breathed his last. Unfortunately, Harpreet's remains cannot be repatriated, and the wish of visiting his country and meeting his family (even after death) remains unfulfilled.
Lessons learnt & a request to students:
Live every moment fully - be present
Spend time with your families and tell how them much you love them while you are still alive. These moments are precious.
Health is Wealth. If one has wealth of health, everything else can be earned with due course of time.
May God give Abhi peace & healing & strength to his family & friends to cope up with this irreparable loss. We welcome tributes in the section below. 💕
