The life events leading to the inspiration to get involved in the area ofsocial work

Mr. Virander got inspiration from the life of his father for doing social work, he used to repeat these famous lines :- “We should do such a noble deeds, which will be written in the Golden letters on the pages of history and makes people proud to be associated with you. So this was how he got involved in the area of social work after getting inspiration from his father.

Achievements and impact 

During mid-1993, when he was running  his unit of hosiery and cloth processing  he got a phone call from Dr. Dharam Pal Ji his brother-in-law, a senior doctor of Hindu Rao Hospital and asked him to come immediately to the hospital to help him for the diagnose of certain chemicals being used in the textile industry for the processing and dyeing of the fabric because about 50 students of an institute under Delhi Government have consumed cold drink (sikanzvi), where by mistake they added some dangerous chemical in place of sugar. He rushed immediately to the hospital along with his dyeing technician and laboratory in-charge and certain samples of the chemicals, laboratory testing equipment’s etc. In the hospital he shared his experience and helped to diagnose the chemical in the cold drink, which probably the students must have consumed.

ISR (1)After that all the doctors had a brain storming discussion and finally prescribed certain anti dote and medicine for that harmful chemical and ordered to get that medicine from the all the wards of the hospital.

Next morning he saw the newspaper and he was happy that “NO NEWS IS THE GOOD NEWS”means all the students were safe and healthy and he was relieved.

In the monsoon season of 2012, there was a pit and hole on the red light crossing just opposite to Satyawati College (Delhi University), Ashok Vihar, Delhi and one evening when he was returning from my work place, he noticed a vehicle accidentally got trapped in the hole.

He immediately decided to put barricade and a red cloth around that hole. It took him around one hour and as he was working there single handedly in the red light duration, of course people who stopped on the red light encouraged him and especially the youths and children by saying “uncle you are doing a good job”.

After that he informed the Delhi Police to get it repaired from the concerned govt. department and kept chasing this complaint with the PCR van also the central police control room and the road was repaired within few days.
