Balbir Singh Seechewal
Who is Balbir Singh Seechewal?
Baba Balbir Singh Seechewal, has become recognised as Punjab's most famous eco-activist, spearheading an anti-river pollution campaign. By combining his assiduously cultivated self-help philosophy with the environmental essence of the Gurbani, Baba ji has resurrected the 110-miles long Kali Bein rivulet.
In his latest project in early 2009, taking up the cudgels to save Buddha Nullah, eminent environmentalist Sant Balbir Singh Seechewal has initiated a campaign for generating awareness amongst different sections of the society to solve the problem of desilting the water body following the failure of the Punjab Pollution Control Board's and industries in complying with the High Court's orders in this regard.
Seechewal says that when he started the water-cleaning project of Kali Bein Rivulet in 2007, it was a challenging task. But, as people became aware of its importance, they joined in cleaning the rivulet, which had become a dried-up drain and had been reduced to a garbage dump with its historic and religious significance long forgotten.
