Dr. L. M. Singhvi

Categories: Politics & Administration

Countries: India

High Commissioner for India in the UK, 1991-7: after V. K. Krishna Menon, he was the second-longest-serving. Described on the web as "a great planter of trees. In England he has been planting trees to commemorate those English poets who loved India - Shelley and Yeats and Eliot - or whom India has loved, Wordsworth and Burns and Blake." All but Yeats and Eliot still to find, though perhaps they are not in London.
