SOT, Harjinder Singh, volunteer (Hindi): "When you see an accident on the road, don't wait until an ambulance arrives or someone comes to rescue them [the injured]. If you want to help, just put him or her in a vehicle and take them to the nearest hospital. Then a doctor will attend to them and save their lives. If you help in this way, then God will bless you and your family."

SOT, Harjinder Singh, volunteer (Hindi): "Regarding the new generation, it's true that they are not so generous. But no-one learns the language and mathematics immediately. They learn the alphabet and numbers slowly and later they pick up. Similarly, if you promote the habit of helping people, they will learn and get involved in helping others."

SCRIPT
A 76-year-old driver turned his auto-rickshaw into an ambulance vehicle offering first aid and free ride to hospital to people injured in road accidents, as filmed in New Delhi on Monday. After finishing his daily job, Harjinder Singh drives to areas with heavy traffic looking to help anyone in need.
"When you see an accident on the road, don't wait until an ambulance arrives or someone comes to rescue them [the injured]. If you want to help, just put him or her in a vehicle and take them to the nearest hospital", said the volunteer.
Harjinder's tuk-tuk vehicle has first aid kit with basic items for the injured. He also delivers medicines to people whose poor health doesn't allow them to get outside.
"No-one learns the language and mathematics immediately. They learn the alphabet and numbers slowly and later they pick up. Similarly, if you promote the habit of helping people, they will learn and get involved in helping others", said Harjinder.
The volunteer added that helping other people made himself much happier and filled his life with purpose.
