Sikh Taxi Driver Tajinder Pal Singh loves to do his bit for the society and what he does will make your heart swell in Pride.
He cooks up 30 kilograms of authentic Indian cuisine to feed the homeless after his night shift is being hailed ‘Australian of The Day’. For the past three years, Tejinder Pal Singh has dedicated the last Sunday of the month to feeding the poor and needy locals of northern Darwin, using what little money he can save.
While people bless him for his act but Mr Singh ignores compliments and attributes his generosity to his Sikh faith.
Mr Singh attributes a deep faith to his generosity, saying, ‘My religion says 10% of income goes toward needy and poor people – no matter (whether) they belong to your religion or any religion.’
Following a grueling twelve hour night shift, he slaves away in his kitchen for five hours to prepare a veritable feast of chickpeas, rice and vegetarian curry – which he then packs into huge containers and serves as a free lunch.
The father of two shrugs off compliments and simply says, ‘I do something for homeless people, so they get more energy so they’re happy’, in an interview with Channel 9.
It’s hard to believe that a racist tirade of abuse from a cab fare in 2012 inspired the humble man to start up the service, in a hope to break down the negative prejudice associated with turbans in the area.
The sacrificial nature has flowed through to his son, Navdeep, who described his father as a kind-hearted, helpful person, reported the ABC. And the thirsty and hungry come flocking when they see his van, decorated with the sign, ‘Free Indian food for hungry and needy people, Provide Sikh family.’
‘I help my dad pour cordial for people who are thirsty, they deserve a cold drink … it’s a really hot day’, Tejinders son, Navdeep, says
The van is decorated with a banner: ‘Free Indian food for hungry and needy people, Provide Sikh family’
Mr Singh’s advice for those inspired by his acts of service, “’I had no sleep, really very hard. If you want to do something for society – you need to work hard.”
It’s not about where you are, what you have, it’s WHAT YOU BELIEVE IN!
