Meet The Founder

Raghbir Singh Nandra

Dr Raghbir Singh Nandra was born in India in the year 1956 after which he migrated to Nairobi in Africa at only five months old with his parents. Thereafter, he returned back to India in the year 1962 when he was six years old where his early childhood begun, influenced at large by the teachings of Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji. Upon completing his primary education at the Government High School in Nakodar he migrated to England where he joined his father in 1967. Raghbir resumed his secondary education at Thomas Telford High school from age eleven leading into further education and heading for University. Despite all geographical and environmental changes Raghbir’s heart and mind always remained focused with his passion for Sikhism inherently growing stronger.

In the year 1974 Raghbir Singh baptised as an orthodox Amritdhari Sikh having experienced various physical, emotional, and spiritual conjectures. From this point on, his mission to guide humanity became the prognostic ambition.

Raghbir's father, Sr Ajit Singh Nandra deceased in 1976 leaving him and the family in consternation. Raghbir being dutiful by nature, sacrificed his milieu academia in order to maintain and nurture family responsibilities bestowed upon him at the mere age of twenty.

Given his artistic background and talent, Raghbir manifested his skills to relay religious insights creating masterful works of art, which in turn led to the development of a thriving career in Signwriting and Printing. The first handwritten signage Raghbir produced still presents the forefront of the Palki Sahib Ji at the Ramgarhia Sikh Temple, Stoke-On-Trent. The entrepreneurial dexterity in Raghbir enabled the business to grow steadily, and hence the successful establishment of Dr Print (UK) Ltd.

Alongside daily routines Raghbir continued searching religious truths, which he felt lay amongst the teachings of Guru Nanak Dev Ji, and indeed the Gurus, ultimately epitomised within the Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji. Given the contextualised circumstances, in 1997 his committed beliefs spiralled into setting up a trust, namely The Peace Foundation, in a vivid attempt to promote a deeper understanding of Sikhism.

Indian Festivals, a Punjabi book published in 2001 with English translations, explaining the significance of numerous auspicious Indian events was made available to all leading libraries throughout the United Kingdom. In addition, Raghbir ensured this book was delivered to Sikh Temples within Britain to capacitate Sangat awareness.

In late December 2014 a religiously propelled realisation dawned upon Raghbir to excel his mission on Sikh doctrines via electronic applications. Such an App includes the Gurbani and Shabad by Guru Nanak Dev Ji. Thus efficiently providing more readily sufficient sources of information on the Gurbani based on ongoing developmental knowledge and research to inspire and encourage forthcoming generations interested in Sikh scriptures.

Dr Raghbir Singh Nandra BSYA (Hom.), Dip HM (inst. NH) is Managing Director at Dr Print (UK) Ltd. He also practices his fervent interests in complimentary therapies since being qualified as a Homoeopathic, Nutrition, Ayurvedic & Herbal Medicine Practitioner.

In addition, as Trustee for The Peace Foundation (Promoting Gurbani Vichar) and being a member of the Education Committee of Sikh Council UK, Raghbir continues to share his dedication towards the Sikh faith.

Appraisal

I, being the youngest sibling, can intransigently confirm that my eldest brother Dr Raghbir Singh Nandra has remained a loyal devote disciple of the Sikh faith since my childhood. He has always respected forgathered senior religious acquaintances during his explorative journey to self-realization.

Raghbir has tenaciously supported and encouraged every family member during disincentive unforeseeable times with the unprecedented reassurance and guidance of prayer. Furthermore, I have witnessed Raghbir renounce his prerogatives to provide sustentation for others in need. A true delight to see him wholeheartedly persevering the desired path with an optimistic approach, which I do believe will aid humanity and reciprocate dividends.

Clearly being an expeditious, intelligent, and conscientious man, Raghbir bases actions upon religious beliefs gained through righteous understandings of the Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji. The fundamentals of Sikh principles, as he acknowledges, have been apparent since his early youthful years as a result of maternal religious nurturing. In my opinion, Raghbir has set a prodigious example of how a true Amritdhari Sikh ought to act. Mirthfully, his somewhat prudent humble approach to Sikhism is distinctively outstanding. A rare trait possessed in mankind exists within his character; a promise remains a promise, and has a personality ennobled by true generosity, sincerity, and trust in God.
