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:

Langar is more than just free meal served in a Gurdwara: Rahul Mittra, Film producer
When I was really small, my late father in Chandigarh took me to a gurdwara. Not only did he make me sit on the floor and have the delicious langar, but he also took me to the kitchen and made me wash utensils. He took me around. I think he was trying to instil a sense of social giving, a sense of sewa. Fortunately, that has stayed with me all over the years. If you look at the terminology of langar, it's just a free meal served in every gurdwara. But in reality, there is much more to that. Langar is a free meal served in a gurdwara, irrespective of caste, creed, religion, ethnicity, social status. So I really appeal to each one of you, everybody, to come forward and participate in this great endeavour. Contribute, make a difference

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.
