Shri Ram singh mehtaji  (90 +) was not keeping good health for the last one month. He was treated at the hospital as well. He was suffering from the old age related ailment. Ultimately he expired last week at his residence of the Himalay Parvatiya CHS, Ghatkopar (W), Mumbai. 

Some interesting things about Shri. Ram singh mehtaji :

1. It is great to learn that Shri. Ram singh mehtaji was in the crew members who brought INS Vikrant war ship from UK.
2. He served as the Warden in the Naval club. After his retirement he served at Lion's club, Near Taj mahal hoel, Fort, Mumbai for some years.
3.Ram singhji was the inspiration for near 40-50 youngsters other wise they were afraid to enter Naval services.
4. Even he was very regular visitor to Himalaya Joggers' park, and used to be friendly with all the inmates of the park.
Now, he his no more. All the members of the Joggers' park, and the members of Society pray that let his soul rest in peace.  Om shanti shanti. shanti.

Earlier I had been to his house and took the interview with him and family members.
