An Era - Late Jattu Ram Ji - Our Tribute (1933-2019)

60 Years continuously he did cycling while distributing newspapers and magazines, he covered almost 8.5 Lakh Kilometer on his bicycle, saved almost 40 thousand liters of fuel in his lifetime. Born in Pakistan, in 1947 he along with his family came to Fazilka at settled here. Selected as Patwari but he chosen to be an entrepreneur at that time and started News Paper agency and newspaper distribution work in Fazilka. He remained the single source of Information to this border town through newspapers/magazine, when even telephone was not available in the city. He brought joy to the childhood of many like me via connecting us with Chacha Chaudhary to Champak. During1965 or 1971 Indo Pak war, he distributed the newspaper to even forward posts during wartime. 
It was a matter of pride for the Team Graduates Welfare Association Fazilka (GWAF). when we honored him with a lifetime achievement award in the year 2010. An avid cyclist, and a wonderful human being. He was truly a blessing in the lives of many and Fazilka will miss him. We would like to express our sincere condolences to his family, he will never be forgotten, may his soul rest in peace.
