Paying back to society

Abohar: Indian American Shree Saini, who has roots here in Abohar, was last week selected as Miss World America "Beauty with a Purpose" National Ambassador. The organisers have created the title in many countries and Indian American representative from Washington Shree Saini has been selected as the American National Ambassador of the programme. "I've dedicated my life to service and BWAP inspired me to start creating positive change 10 years ago by serving over 100 non-profits," says Shree Saini.

A team or solo player?

Gurdaspur: The knives are out for Navjot Singh Sidhu following his verbal spat with Cabinet Minister Sukhjinder Singh Randhawa, a known loyalist of CM Capt Amarinder Singh. The former's verbal volley, directed at the minister at Rahul Gandhi's Moga rally, has not gone down well with the CM and his men. A minister said: "Despite the fact that for a major part of his life he remained a cricketer, a team game, Sidhu has never been a team player. If your Captain (pun unintended!) changes your fielding position in a match, will you leave the team in the lurch? This is clearly what happened when the CM changed his portfolio from Local Bodies to Power. Instead of playing ball, the man ditched his team and preferred to run solo."

Caring for stray animals

Abohar: For the service and treatment of stray cattle, some social activists had developed a small gaushala near Daulatpura village on the Abohar-Sriganganagar highway a few years ago. Shri Krishna Gau Samiti has earned the support from farmers, who were upset at the damage to their fields by these stray bulls. The management has hired services of private veterinary surgeons to treat the cattle. A farmer, Prabhpreet Singh Gill, visited the gaushala on Friday to contribute Rs 1.11 lakh to help construct a shed, keeping in view the upcoming winter. He also announced to pay Rs 36,000 monthly salary to the two doctors.

Little champ's big feat

MLA Kaka Randeep Singh honours Gurkirat Singh.

Fatehgarh Sahib: Gurkirat Singh (14), son of a truck driver, has brought laurels to Fatehgarh Sahib district as well as the state by getting the second runners-up position in "SA-RE-GA-MA-PA" Little Champs competition of ZEE TV. A student of Sacred Heart Senior Secondary School, Mandi Gobindgarh, he got inspiration to sing from his maternal grandfather, a ragi at a gurdwara in Ludhiana. Sensing his talent for music, his family got Gurkirat trained in Punjabi folk music at Tejwant Kittu Academy in Ludhiana and in classical music from Rajiv Kumar Malik from Assam. This was perfected with continuous practice at home. Recognising his achievement, Amloh MLA Kaka Randeep Singh honoured him at his residence along, with many other NGOs.
