S arbjeet Singh aka ‘Vella Bobby’

Prime mover of a NGO named ‘Almighty Blessings’, he is providing the service of free funeral van which he drives himself. He said that cremation grounds being located far, everyone couldn’t manage to take corpse to the place before sun set. Families faced problems especially the poor ones and even it was difficult for the unidentified corpses to take them to crematoriums so I started driving funeral vans. He has carried around 5000 corpse over the years. It didn’t matter how far he has to drive or at what time he is being called for the service, he is always ready without any charges. Along with being social worker he is also a businessman and is running shoe business in Shimla. Even after having financial support from people, he manages to drive funeral van on his own expenses. 

Before all these services he was a volunteer in Gurudwara blood donation camp in Shimla that was stopped in midway but he continued arranging blood camps knowing the fact IGMC and Kamla Nehru hospital have maximum number of cases and there is always shortage of blood. He with his team collected more than 20,000 units of blood over the years due to which these hospitals rely on him during an emergency.  In 2004, he started providing free food in the form of ‘langars’ to the cancer patients and their attendants. He also took the initiative to start five chapatti banks in Sanjauli, Totu, Kasumpati, Lakkar bazaar and Lower bazaar to collect chapattis and serve them to the people who can’t afford to have proper meal. 

He also cautioned :  ‘Himachal is on the way to become Udta Himachal soon. Depression being a reason for using drugs and alcohol has to be properly treated by the only mantra ‘Sharing’- sharing of thoughts, tensions and experiences. He explained this sharing process with a very practical example that “a kid belonging to a rich family indulges himself in drugs because he is provided with all the luxuries and enough money to spend whereas a poor child uses drugs because of depression caused out of poverty. If the rich kid can help the poor one by sharing and helping him by giving money and food, the poor kid may never be depressed and the rich one might use his money over something noble. 

While interviewing him, a ‘Wall of Charity’ was suggested by him to Ms. Poonam Nanda ( Director of the SPRINT Programme and Dean Student Welfare of Shoolini University ) for the purpose of getting contribution from students and the faculty where people can hang the things in usable condition  that could be used by anyone in need in the campus itself.
