Illegal encroachment on the ponds and rivers is in abundance
Sultanpur lodhi, 20th February
The condition of the small rivers of the area of Banaras those merge in the Ganga is quite pitiable. Varna and Assi rivers merge in the Ganga, their waters are badly polluted. Whereas Varanasi city was named after these rivers. IIT Director of Banaras Hindu University Dr Prabhat Kumar and Lalit Malwia and Kupinder Tiwari who are running a Jan Andolan to save the ponds of Banaras city informed Environment lover Sant Balbir Singh Seechewal about the condition of the Varna and Assi rivers.
Lalit Malwia and Kupinder Tiwari who are running Jan Andolan told that in  the religious granths of the historical city Banaras it is mentioned that there were 155 ponds in the city. But according to the record of the Nagar Council only 80 ponds are left. Most of those have vanished to the political encroachment. The persons who are fighting to get these ponds relieved from illegal encroachment are facing more than 12 false cases.
  IIT Director Dr Prabhat Kumar told that till now the government has spent 200 crores to save Verna river, with it the banks have been made strong and beautiful. Sant Seechewal after seeing the condition of the rivers said that before beautifying the banks there is a need to enforce the project of stopping the fall of contaminated waters in the rivers. Sant Seechewal along with these two rivers also visited the 8 ponds whose condition was quite miserable. He said that the Holy Kali bein that is also mentioned in the history, this rivulet has the honor of the touch of the pious feet of Baba Nanak. The contaminated waters of the villages and cities were also falling in it but when the Jan Andolan was started and pressure was made on the government to install treatment plants to stop the contaminated waters from falling in the river and this treated water should be used for agriculture purpose. On this occasion along with him was Sant Daya Singh Ji of Gurdwara Tahli sahib, Ex DGP of Uttar Pradesh R N Singh, Sanjay Gupta of Indore, Anurag Ohri, Gurwinder Singh Boparai, Vikas Singh, Amit Singh and R N Shukla and other experts were also present.

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…

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…
