G.P. Singh is a member of the San Antonio Sikh community. The entrepreneur with master’s and doctoral degrees in mechanical engineering went from working in his garage to building Karta Technologies, one of San Antonio’s largest defense contractors.

Singh has worked diligently after the events of 9/11 to spread the word on Sikhism and Sikh Americans, since their religious articles – men’s turbans and unshorn beards – are often associated with images of terrorists seen through news media.

Singh worked to bring the Smithsonian exhibit "Sikhs: Legacy of the Punjab" to San Antonio and personally led dozens of tours to educate municipal, business and community leaders on the Sikh religion and the local Sikh community. His guests included San Antonio Police Chief William McManus, members of the World Affairs Council, representatives from the Department of Justice, the State Department, various law enforcement organizations such as the FBI, plus local media, religious organizations and more.
