Pingalwara Society

When I was in Amritsar, I visited the Pingalwara Society. In Punjabi Pingalwara literally means ‘a home for the crippled’. It was the brainchild of Bhagat Puran Singh. It has a lot of centers and looks after people given up by their children, mentally ill patients and terminally ill people. The main guiding principle was also laid down by Bhagat Puran Singh, that those who are unable to earn a living should be helped by others. Some pictures:
