Seechewal Model A Way of Prosperity….

What exactly is Seechewal Model ?

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.

Avtar Gaushala An effort to shelter homeless and speechless animals

Mostly the stray animals become the cause of accidents on the roads. Many valuable lives have been lost due to accidents happening due to stray animals. After all it is a big question that why these milk yielding cows come in the class of stray animals. Until a cow yields milk it is kept in the house and is well served. When it stops yielding milk it is stealthily left on the road to wander. The stray cows have become a big problem but no proper alternative for it is found. To give relief to the historical city Sultanpur lodhi from the stray cows, Sant Balbir Singh Seechewal has made an effort to take care of the stray cows. Started with one stray cow in 2010 Avtar Gau Shala has now more than 150 cows, those left out by the people.
