- Jaswinder’s courage and commitment to perform his duty sets an example for others in the war against CoronaVirus
- Multi-purpose health worker of the Health Department, Punjab is performing his duty despite facing many challenges
“Life’s battles don’t always go to the stronger or faster man, But soon or late the man who wins is the man who thinks he can!”. These lines of Walter D. Wintle from his poem ‘Thinking’ are for people like Jaswinder Singh, who had a leg amputated during an accident in 2009, but he did not lose the courage.
Jaswinder Singh, a 38-year-old multi-purpose health worker, being an employee of the Health Department, Punjab, is performing his duty with utmost dedication during this difficult time. He is working at sub-center Bharowal falling under primary health center Possi, Hoshiarpur. His sub-center covers 9 villages where he has been fulfilling the responsibilities assigned by the department besides following the people who were home quarantined due to COVID-19.
Jaswinder said that he has to put some extra efforts these days to fulfill his duty as the society is going through difficult times. He said that there are problems in life but one should not run away, rather face these firmly. He told that his supervisor Dr. Ram Gopal and the rest of the team always encouraged him. “We are working as a team, we are visiting about 30 houses every day for follow up”, said Jaswinder while appealing the people to stay at home to stop the spread of Corona Virus as they were doing their duty only to keep them safe.
Jaswinder said that he joined the Health Department as a multi-purpose health worker on September 6, 2019. “While handing over the appointment letter, Health Minister Mr. Balbir Singh Sidhu had said that I should never think of myself as a Divyang and do my duty with dedication and hard work, and never let it come to my mind that I’m physically weak”, said Jaswinder while adding that these words made their home in his mind and he always performed his duty following this mantra.
Admiring Jaswinder Singh’s dedication to his duty, Deputy Commissioner Apneet Riyait appealed to all the government officials and employees to do their best in solidarity to serve humanity. She said that the work being done by the Health Department in the district under the Civil Surgeon Dr. Jasvir Singh is praiseworthy. She further added that the employees like Jaswinder Singh are acting as inspiration for all those who are wholeheartedly fulfilling the responsibility given by the administration despite facing the adverse circumstances.
