It is also the blog that is bringing the people close to each other with karsewa of different type.
The Punjab like other states of India and the whole world
today is facing a great environmental crisis. Ground water level of Punjab is
depleting rapidly. All the natural water resources are polluted due to the
dumping of untreated and poisonous industrial and domestic wastage into them.
As a result of this, people at large are suffering from deadly diseases. Sant
Balbir Singh Singh Seechewal has devised "Seechewal model", a simple
pipe and pump formula, as an effective solution to this serious problem. It has
been implemented at many places including village Seechewal and Sultanpur
Lodhi. In fact it has been termed as 'Seechewal Model' by the Government of
India. It has been adopted as a model for cleaning the Ganga apart from other
rivers of India. Before this, the Government of India dwelled on the other
countries for assistance- financial as well as technical. After all such
efforts had failed, the need for searching alternatives was sorely felt. This
model is a result of collective efforts of people involved in the karsewa of
the Holy Kali Bein under the guidance of Sant Balbir Singh Seechewal.

Today, almost all rivers in India are polluted due to the Industrial and domestic wastage

in July 2000. Now the river is clean and its water is drinkable as a result of
the efforts of the Sangat. Rivers and streams all around the world can be kept
clean by adopting this model. According to this model:

during this year. 500th Prakash Purb of Guru nanak Dev Ji the founder of the
Sikh religion was celebrated in Sultanpur Lodhi in 1969 and there have been lot
of changes during 50 years to this Prakash Purab. During these 50 years the
downfall in the environment is the biggest challenge. These 50 years, human
development has played with the nature to such extent that big changes can be
seen from hill peaks to to the oceans. Means due to global warming the snow
laden peaks of the hills have melted and the increase in the level of the sea,
many islands in the low lying areas have drowned in the sea. If such behavior
continues then low lying nations will become prey to the sea. These are the big
changes which are visible in the world and its affect is also visible. During
these 50 years, what the Pun…
