Tikri and Singhu borders are witnessing a social change, where hoards of Punjabi youngsters, who were until now labeled as flamboyant, materialistic and drug dependents, are reaching out to extend all help to farmers.

Brother-sister duo of Bathinda Dr Manhar Kaur and Sarvfateh Singh are one such example.

Dr Manhar a dentist by profession and is providing medical help along with Dr Swaimann Singh, a cardiologist from New Jersey. Her work starts at midnight when she gets in touch with logistic volunteers from the USA working in John Hopkins and Harvard Universities.

The next day is planned and execution starts with the first rays of sun. People come up to them with ailments and are given all help.

While talking to The Tribune over the phone, Dr Manhar said, “More than curing a disease, they need a healing touch of words of compassion and motivation.” Sarvfateh Singh, who is pursuing a degree in product design from Los Angeles, USA, is highly motivated and works for a recently started library and facilitating supplies arriving from various sources at the Tikri border. He also spends time in live caricature sketching at the camps which he lovingly gifts to people.
