His experience and views as an honorary sewadar of Pingalwara:- Pingalwara is a model of service to humanity, which came into being due to endless and patient efforts, self-confidence, courage, humility, determination, faith in God and dedication to the service of humanity of its energetic and industrious founder, Bhagat Puran Singh. He remained engaged for the realization of his dreams about the welfare of the humanity. After him, his successor, Dr. Inderjit Kaur is following in his foot-steps and is implementing the philosophy of ‘Service to the suffering humanity is service to God’. In addition, Pingalwara has become a centre of public welfare under the able leadership of Dr. Inderjit Kaur, such as, free education, free medical aid, plantation of trees for improving the environment, conservation of water, natural farming, etc.
