To whom it may concern

I am pleased to commend to your attention, Mr Nisar Keshvani who was my facilitator and Senior Academic at Republic Polytechnic’s Centre for Culture and Communication, Singapore.

At the moment, I am Publicity and Education Executive with the Parliament of Singapore. The functions of Parliament include making laws, controlling the state's finances and taking up a critical/inquisitorial role to check on the actions of the governing party and the Ministries of Singapore.

Mr Keshvani was my facilitator for M342 Visual Communication – focussed on the nature of visual communication and how it creates meaning in the world we live in, designing information visually for a variety of media and selecting appropriate visuals to suit different purposes in informing, persuading and entertaining audiences.




He made extra effort to help us understand by providing personal examples based on his experience which we could relate to, to better understand key visual concepts and ideas.



He was also my co-supervisor during my internship with the Singapore Indian Development Association (SINDA), a self-help group that works to uplift the local Indian community, where I worked with their Corporate Communications Division.

Lessons at the Republic Polytechnic thrive on Problem-Based Learning (PBL), and Mr Keshvani was a facilitator who made a conscientious effort to bring his professional work experience into the classroom. During our lengthy classroom discussions and problem-solving with my team-mates, he never failed to listen attentively to our findings and subtly steer us in the right direction to discover the key learnings of the days’ lessons.

However, for me, whilst the classroom lessons were insightful, my most important learnings occurred during my internship with SINDA. During my first day there, we were tasked to edit and examine SINDA’s annual report – this was when the lessons Mr Keshvani shared came alive, and I surprised myself by being able to critically assess the report and offer constructive feedback to my employers. They were very impressed with us, and at the end of our stint, featured us in their corporate newsletter.

As my co-supervisor, Mr Keshvani was a text or instant message away, when it came to any queries or difficulties my peers or I faced. I recall facing a dilemma during my internship, and contacting him. He listened attentively, advised, and offered to set up assistance from both the Polytechnic and my employers.




Mr Keshvani is an excellent teacher, mentor and guide. Both in the classroom, and in person, he is genuine and sincere with guiding and helping his studentss.

He is always available to respond to their needs and offers his best to help them. He was able to clearly and concisely share concepts, teachings and ideas to my classmates and me, and engage us in the classroom.

I have no hesitation in supporting Mr Keshvani’s application, and wish him well in his future endeavours. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you require further information.
