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:

‘Sewa’ is a feeling: Singh Sahib Giani Ranjit Singh, Head Priest, Gurdwara Bangla Sahib

We didn't let any volunteer help with the sewa at the gurdwara, it was entirely our staff. You won't be able to imagine - a langari working at 35-40 degrees for 16-18 hours. Our honourable President even asked them to rest but they said the rest is not needed, if we stand for a little bit more, another pot of rice can be prepared, another pot of dal will be ready, and it will help feed someone hungry. This is the Sikhi spirit, Sikhi love. This is Sikhi faith and beliefs that gives them strength.

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.
