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:

Selfless service is in the DNA of sikh: Vikramjit Sahney, Chairman, Sun Foundation & International President, World Punjabi Organization

It is in our religion that every human being is manifestation of good. As far as Delhi Sikh community is concerned, we started providing langar to millions of poor migrant workers, on March 23. The sewakars were constantly there helping and doing sewa despite the COVID they put their lives on the line and fed the poor. Sewa in Sikh ethos and religion is selfless service and supreme in sikh religion. When you enter gurdwara, you can see it starts with washing your shoes, the cleaning of sarowars and among others it is the community kitchen, to cook, to serve and to wash utensils. This happens regardless of religion, class, caste and creed. It shows the humility and compassion. It is unparalleled.

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.
