The brain child of our
founder trustees late S. Gurbaksh Singh Bindra and
S. Shamsher Singh who when informed
about the various families living in the adjoining areas of Haridwar and having
their lineage to Lakhi Shah Vanjara thought of building a vidyalaya for the
children of these and other poor families entirely free of charge and teach them
Gurbani so that they can be proud of their religion as well as make a living for
The vidyalaya today
imparts education as well as free boarding and lodging to almost 200 hundred
The children who have
passed out of this School have done the management proud by being leading
Raagis who are employed in various Gurudwaras all over India and the world
. Countries like Canada USA Germany etc. in the west and Singapore, Thailand in
the east are today hearing the melodious voice of these Raagis.
Those who donít have an
inclination to singing or music are also doing well for themselves. We have
children working in various Gurudwaras of the country in different capacities
and some of them have even opened there own business ventures.
Where at one
S. Gurbaksh Singh Bindra had a difficult time trying to convince the
parents of these children to send them to Rishikesh and get them enrolled in the
school it is a different story today and we have to refuse admission each year
to many students due to constraint of space.
The trust is
proud to see the prosperity of these people and feel that this can be marked as
which our Gurus preached.
