Once in office, he is in a different world.He has to be attentive, aware, focused and prompt. Each day brings new stories of kidnapping, theft, ransom, illegal activities, and an unending list with phone calls, emails, the media reports, and much more. As the day settles, he goes back home, unwinds and mediates before retiring to the bed/ sleeping. He does not believe in taking office issues back home. But his office related calls do not stop even in the night.

ALWAYS

Communicate to Connect

He says, “If you want to go ahead in life, you have to communicate properly with people. Your role has to change each time. When you speak to a child, you have to behave differently and communicate differently. When you are talking to a lady or a senior citizen, your mannerisms must change. But nowhere can you show your arrogance, your authority, or position”.

He believes, “Communication generates accessibility and people will approach you with their queries”. Even if he does not have an immediate answer to a problem, people at least find assurance and satisfaction in the fact that he lent a listening ear. That’s Dr. Singal is with everyone, be it the locals, the police staff, or the media.

UNITE

Media is an Ally

Unlike many people, he readily faces the media and shares authentic information with them. He feels, “Writing is their duty, and my job is to give them the right information.” He feels, “Reading about a person does build perceptions but when we meet someone in person, it creates an everlasting image”.

Commit Yourself to a Better YOU.
