Mumbai: “He was a great listener,” said actress Mandira Bedi, niece of Marshal of Indian Air Force (IAF) Arjan Singh, on Monday, while sharing her memories with the latter.
“My greatest memory of him was that he’s a great listener; he used to listen. He had so many achievements, but he never spoke about anyone. Rather what he would do is he will be interested in your life. So, he asked me the smallest things about my work, my son, my family and more,” she told ANI, after the last rights ceremony of the Marshal of IAF, here at Brar Square.
Mandira, who reached Delhi, early morning on Sunday, further stated, “He lived a very beautiful and distinguished life. The farewell that he got, the way the Air Force took it over, shows how well loved, admired and respected he always was, and rather he is. One looks back at the life so well lived…yes it is a loss.”
She also took to Twitter on September 16 to share her grief and posted, “Marshall of the Air Force, #ArjanSingh , my uncle, passed away this evening. A true officer and a gentleman. Will miss him dearly. #RIP”
