For the honour of Air, Water and Earth mother such many posts can be sacrificed.
On the report submitted by environment lover Padma Shree Sant Balbir Singh Seechewal, Punjab Government was fined rupees 50 crores by the National Green Tribunal and after that the issue of relieving Sant Seechewal from the membership of Punjab Pollution Control Board has become a matter of controversy. Whereas the social media is condemning the  government on other hand Padma Shree Sant Balbir Singh Seechewal is saying that loosing the membership of the PPCB will not affect him or his mission . Sant Seechewal said that the mission of purity and defending Air, Water and Earth mother is based on the message of gurbani, so to defend these three, such many posts can be sacrificed. It is for information that Punjab Government reorganizing the board has relieved Sant Balbir Singh Seechewal from the membership of the board. Sant Seechewal has been member of the board since 10th February 2014.
NGT had given responsibility to Sant Seechewal to provide new life to the rivers who are dying after bearing the poisonous pollution. About that Sant Seechewal submitted a detailed report on pollution in the Sutlej and Beas rivers to the National Green Tribunal and after that NGT penalized Punjab Government for rupees 50 crores. According to reports it was pointed out that the treatment plants those were installed in Punjab to treat the dirty waters was just a eye wash.
Most of the plants had become scrap and those which were working were pushing the water in the rivers without purifying. It was made clear in the report that solid waste removal in the sewage treatment plants was being handled with carelessness. Due to this carelessness water of river is becoming polluted, quality of land water in the surrounding areas of the river is also declining. There also the danger of increase in serious diseases in the lives of the residents of Rajasthan exists, as they are being supplied drinking water through this river. In a special discussion meeting with us, NGT supervising committee appointed member, Sant Balbir Singh Seechewal said that the issue of natural resources pollution is quite serious and is of great worry and if joint efforts to make it pollution free are not done then it will prove disastrous. On the question of PPCB membership relieving, he said that when he was not the member he had been raising the pollution issue of the rivers and will carry on in the future. But it is matter of regret that instead of bringing the culprits to the limelight Punjab Government is trying to suppress the voice of truth.

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. 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…

Challenges of Environmental Pollution and its Solutions.

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…

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. Now these cows are milk yielding.The sangats are whole heartedly serving these animals with feed, straw and parali. To save these animals from cold, the sheds with modern facilities have been made. Hardeep Singh, Baba Golu, Kaka and many more sewadars are e…
