Ludhiana businessman included in the list of 200 Most Influential Do-Gooders in the World


City based restaurateur and social activist, Harjinder Singh Kukreja has been featured on the list of the world’s top 200 most influential philanthropists and social entrepreneurs 2017.

The list on which Ludhiana’s Harjinder features also includes Prime Minister Modi at the 15th position. Two former US Presidents Barack Obama and Bill Clinton also rank prominently on the list. Kukreja is a part of this list of influential people for effectively having soft power and being pro-active, particularly at being socially concerned. Harjinder has over 425000 followers on Twitter and combined followers of over one million across top social networking sites.

Talking about Harjinder Singh Kukreja’s contributions to the society, he has always stepped ahead to put his best foot forward by participating in unfortunate events like; Tsunamis, Earthquakes, and Floods. He helped many people affected in the 2014 flood of Jammu & Kashmir. He has supported the victims of Chennai floods and gave his services in form of money, clothes, items of daily needs, and food. In one of the efforts to bring equality and humanity together, he invited the Shahi Imam and welcomed people of other religions for a grand Sikh Langar, held at Jama Masjid.

Harjinder is also the first Sikh to Skydive with the Turban from 14000 feet in Melbourne. It was an effort taken to raise awareness about the Turban and its significance.

“The power of Social Media is immense. I am honoured that people get influenced by my initiatives. I will continue to contribute to the society and inspire others to do so,” says Harjinder.

Harjinder Singh Kukreja’s passion for history and exploration was also seen in Singapore when he rediscovered and highlighted statues of Sikh guards in Singapore’s Bukit Brown cemetery in March 2016.

In July 2016, he also installed the Sikh symbol of Khanda at the Menin Gate in Ypres, Belgium and paid tribute to the unknown Sikh soldiers of World War 1.

Harjinder presented a painting showcasing Guru Nanak’s visit to Nepal to the Indian Ambassador last year in December. The painting is now installed prominently at the Indian Embassy in Kathmandu.

Harjinder also played an important role in the installation of the statue of Maharaja Ranjit Singh in France on 17 September, 2016. He has also cycled across Paris to highlight Maharaja Dalip Singh’s connection with the city.

Last month Harjinder also hosted a French delegation and supported French historian, Douglas Gressiux launch his book on Indian soldiers who served in France in World War 1.

Harjinder Kukreja says, “Life should not only be about accumulating wealth, it should have a purpose and influence that makes the world a better place to live in”.

It is pertinent to mention, Harjinder Singh Kukreja was also awarded the Sikh Youth Icon Award 2016.

Visit Izmir – Western Turkey 🇹🇷

Yes! Izmir!

What an honour it was to visit Turkey’s  3 largest city. All thanks to the awesome, friendly and culturally rich people. Surrounded by the Bay of Ä°zmir, Izmir has been an important Aegean port since forever, when it was the Greek city of Smyrna! 

Izmir’s rich and amazing heritage showcases the fact that it has been the home of Greeks, Armenians, Jews, Levantines and Turks over the past hundreds of years. It is no longer as diverse as it was, it still has resident Jewish and Levantine communities and its unique and delicious cuisine comes along with it!

The best place according to me in Izmir is Ephesus. It was a huge bucket on my list of places to visit and finally I got to visit the legendary Ephesus and Check it off my list. 

The bazaars of Izmir are extraordinary and not-anywhere-else in the world types, an impressive museum of history and art.

Spending 3 days in Izmir is must-do if you’re visiting Turkey. I would go a step further and say, your Turkish exploration is not complete without visiting Izmir! I so want to go back to Izmir with my beautiful wife and kids! 💕🇹🇷
