Every morning a 75 years old man is seen at Delhi’s Seelampur Chowk managing traffic free of cost for decades. When asked, he says that he doesn’t want any person to suffer from the loss of a dear one because of the poor traffic.
Service to the society is the service to mankind, an action which is done without any expectation of reward. Very few people these days live for others and selflessly devote their actions to social construction.
One such person resides in the national capital city where most people are engaged in their lives unaware of what is happening around them. We can always spot him, a 75 years old, managing the traffic of Seelampur Chowk, Delhi for the past 32 years without any pay. Dressed in a shabby uniform of a Traffic Police with a stick in his hand, he is often confused as a goon. There is no holiday for him because he doesn’t take any. He diligently works twelve hours a day tirelessly. He is Ganga Ram who despite his age has not let go of his passion to serve the society.
The passersby know him as a humble man who from 8 am in the morning directs the traffic till 8 pm in the evening. His everyday disciplined routine to make a smooth way for the vehicles has brought him immense appreciation. But the story behind his smiling face is different and will have you think that people like him who live for a cause, silently in resolution, do exist.
