Dil Se Sewa

Highlights of #DilSeSewa Telethon: An Initiative To Support Our Langars Feed Millions During The Coronavirus Crisis

New Delhi Television Limited (NDTV), in collaboration with the Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee, has initiated a campaign #DilSeSewa. At a time of widespread hunger and a humanitarian crisis, this campaign focuses on the rich living tradition of food sharing as widely practised in “Langars” or community kitchens by the Sikh community. The Sikh community has been at the forefront of relentlessly helping people to tide over the crisis— and their 'sewa' during the coronavirus pandemic is a shining example of their community spirit.

Here are the Highlights of the #DilSeSewa Telethon:

We seen and done sewa during many crisis for years but this was a new type of challenge: Manjinder Singh Sirsa, President, Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee


This time people were more scared of hunger than the immediate crisis of COVID. We got calls from everywhere to get food. We have never faced this. Even our staff, we were worried about their safety but despite the situation in Delhi even now in terms of Coronavirus, we have fed more than one crore people in Delhi and by god's grace our staff has remained protected and they are all healthy despite visiting so many people during sewa. We have worked in many crisis, but saw this kind of pain for the first time when people could not go out and earn. This was a challenge. I would like to thank each person who helped in delivering nearly two lakh meals everyday

We have people helping us from across the world, with donation, truckloads of food anonymously. This is due to the blessings of God, Guru Nanak and Guru Granth Sahib that people in hunger were able to get food.

About The Campaign

About The Campaign

At a time of widespread hunger and a humanitarian crisis, this campaign focuses on the rich living tradition of food sharing as widely practised in “Langars” or community kitchens by the Sikh community.

The concept of Langar is to serve meals to all, regardless of caste, class, religion, gender, social or economic status or political consideration - especially at a time when it is most critical. The Sikh community has been at the forefront of relentlessly helping people to tide over the crisis— and their 'sewa' during the coronavirus pandemic is a shining example of their community spirit.
