Sharan

Our Inspiration

We’d like to recognize a very pivotal and special committee member who we lost a little more than a month ago. Sharan Singh, who fought a brave battle with astrocytoma, a type of brain tumor for over 7 years. She handled each adversity with positivity and never allowed it to win over her. Sharan’s life changed, but she never lost to the disease. Instead, Sharan danced at her wedding, continued to teach math at Mission San Jose High School, and lived life according to the principles set out by Guru Nanak of Nirbhau (without fear) and Nirvair (without hate). Sharan definitely left a legacy for us to abide by and today we’d like to share her part with you. During BABG 2016/17, Sharan had a lot of people to look after, including teams. She was making gift baskets for the teams along with others and also leading a big group of liaisons but no matter how much workload it was, Sharan stood tall with her work.

This past year, during BABG 2018, Sharan was the back bone who was in charge of most of the paperwork that was involved with the show, whether it was creating the judges binders, or team rosters, or communication work with the Judges, or to assure that the right people would have wristbands, which we can say, was probably one of the most annoying tasks. However, Sharan did it all with a smile on her face, despite being actually physically limbing during the time. Bay Area’s Bhangra & Giddha Competition serves the purpose for our audience to experience folk and culture like never before, but our competition also stands behind people dealing with causes greater than any of us could imagine. Sharan has taught us all so much about living in the moment, to constantly fight each adversity with a smile and a sense of hope, so we plan on having that be a prominent message for our teams and our audience. Our competition’s proceeds intend on going to multiple causes including giving to the National Brain Tumor Society(NBTS). Moreover, Sharan was very compassionate about giving back to the community. With that being said, we are including a link to the fundraiser for NBTS in honor of Sharan in our bio. Here’s to BABG 2018… this is for you, Sharan
