    The relatively unknown Bhagat Puran Singh was born in Punjab in 1904. Motivated by his love of humanity, he established Pingalwara, an institution dedicated to the care and healing of the disabled and the infirm.

    The uplifting documentary is told from the atypical point of view of the observations of Pyara, Bhagat Puran Singh’s severely disabled ward, whom he transported on his back for 14 years.

    Western audiences understand and recognize the contributions of towering figures such as Mother Teresa of Calcutta and Albert Schweitzer. Likewise, Bhagat Puran Singh of Pingalwara, Amritsar was also among the few shining stars in recent history who devoted their entire lives to serving the sick, the weak and the destitute.

    When he died in 1992, there were no headlines, no huge processions, and no massive garlands of flowers. But he left something vastly more enduring, a legacy of care and concern for the entire world to see. Captured in this documentary is a legacy that animates every atom of his beloved institution, Pingalwara.

    The production, which has gone direct to DVD, has English and Punjabi audio tracks. It is being distributed via the internet and to schools and libraries world wide.
