However, in the past 18 months, he has made an incredible contribution to the festival’s recovery from the pandemic.

“I was shocked and saddened to learn about Shiva, @count Shiva, a man full of love to share with everyone he encountered. I still recall the first Cup Day breakfast in 2010 when I didn’t know anyone in Melbourne yet. You were stunning and had such style. It’s how I’ll always think of you.

Over the years, we have had a lot of laughs, hugs, and gossip sessions. You gave me my first Indian dress and instructed me on how to wear it. Something that is now useful.”

His loved ones will dearly miss Singham. Prayers for him; may he get peace hereafter. Rest in Peace, Shiva Singham.
