“India has a long battle ahead”

Former Deputy Mayor of Chandigarh, Harmohinder Singh Lucky is leaving no stone unturned in helping all those in need during this testing time!

As things come to a near standstill due to the novel coronavirus, there are a lot of needy people out there who are suffering the economic impact of lockdown. However, Harmohinder Singh Lucky, Former Deputy Mayor of Chandigarh and AICC Co-ordinator is leaving no stone unturned to help those in need during this testing time by conducting community kitchen services.

 Ex-Senate and Syndicate member of Panjab University, Harmohinder Singh Lucky is presently serving as the President of Shiv Mandir, Sector-8, Chandigarh.

How has your typical day routine changed since the virus outbreak?

Ever since the lockdown, my routine has seen a drastic change. I am a very active person and very social due to my profession. However, the lockdown has curtailed this for good. Now I get to spend time with my family and introspect on a lot of things.

What are some major challenges that you tend to face these days?

I believe that challenges are always there whenever you do some substantial work. Initially, our main challenge was to gather funds to run the initiative on a colossal scale and motivate people to come forward. However, the UT police and members of the civil society were of great help for us to achieve this.

Tell us more about your philanthropic initiative in this unprecedented difficult time? What motivated you to contribute your bit?

I have always been associated with social activities and philanthropic work. We started with preparing langar for the poor in Sector-8 Shiv Mandir. Initially, we used to prepare 200-300 packets which have now gone up to 1000 with support of the people. The selfless work done by Sector-8 Gurudwara and Nishkam Seva Members has been my constant source of motivation for all this while.

What are some precautionary measures that you take to contain the spread of the virus?

As I go out in the public domain in the lockdown, I follow a very stringent safety routine. We prepare the langar with masks and gloves on. There is a rule to enter the kitchen and the mandir premises only after sanitising the hands and social distancing is practiced with utmost sincerity.
