ਅਮ੍ਰਿਤਸਰ ਦਾ ਇਕ ਰਿਕਸ਼ਾ ਚਾਲਕ ਬਣਿਆ ਨਾਮਵਰ ਲੇਖਕ, ਹੁਣ ਤਕ ਦੇ ਆਪਣੇ ਰੋਜਾਨਾ ਖੱਟੇ ਮਿੱਠੇ ਤਜਰਬੇ ਨੂੰ ਦਿੱਤੋ ਕਿਤਾਬ ਦਾ ਰੂਪ
Penning down his experiences with the passengers, a rickshaw puller from Amritsar has released a unique book ‘Rickshaw tey Chaldi Zindagi’ (Life on a rickshaw). Written by Rajbir Singh, 40, who has just studied till Class X, the book is a compilation of short stories on his experience till now.
Twenty years ago, his father’s deteriorating health had forced him to leave studies and start pulling a rickshaw on roads of Amritsar. “With no other source of income visible to me then, I left studies and sat on the rickshaw of my father. It wasn’t that we were ancestrally poor, it were the circumstances that landed me into this profession,” says Singh.
The 14-chapter book, priced at Rs 200, has been published by a Rajpura-based publisher.
