My name is Kalwinder Singh Dhindsa


I am a Sikh Derby Man who has written a story about my late father.

I have been working on it since 2008.

It’s been a bit of a struggle.

Part One is now complete.


@KhalSir @PearTreeDerby

My Father & The Lost Legend of Pear Tree (MF & TLLoPT).

“A ghostly pale face from the past guides a young boy on a journey of regeneration and discovery. The rest is HiStory”

The book is all about my late father and how I have tried to make something positive come out of his death.

To make sure that the memory of my father is never forgotten. The story centres around my journey to try and come to terms with his death. It is told in two parts over two years whilst I am working as a Teacher of Science at John Port School in Etwall, Derbyshire.

Part One is mainly about the days leading up to my father’s death and the subsequent days and weeks after. Flashbacks to the past also reveal happier times as well as the days and weeks before and after his death.

Part Two begins with a fresh new academic year at John Port School. However, life begins to get me down. I realise that I need to get out. This is not the life I wanted. I decide that I must walk away. To start again.

My Quest for Happiness begins.

“If you build it. He will come”


“I want epitaphs of profound history and all that type of thing. They contributed – I would hope they would say that, and I would hope somebody liked them”
