Twenty-five years ago, Karimul Hak lost his mother because he could not afford an ambulance and there was no other way to take her to a hospital. However, when his co-worker fell sick, Karimul resolved to ensure that history did not repeat itself.
Bike Ambulance Dada, the authorized biography of Padma Shri awardee Karimul Hak, is the most inspiring and heart-warming story you will read this year. It documents the extraordinary journey of a tea garden worker who saved thousands of lives by starting a free bike-ambulance service from his village to the nearest hospital in an attempt to fill the gap the insufficient rural healthcare created.
This book, about the extraordinary life of a man who has devoted his entire life to helping those around him and putting others before himself, is a must-read today, serving as an inspiration for us to do and be better.
