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:

Sikh community has always come forward whenever there is a need, without making choices. We need to acknowledge their devotion: Sunil Munjal, Chairman, Hero Enterprise
This is a community known worldwide to always do sewa without exception. I was born and brought up in Ludhiana. My grandmother would take us to the gurdwara every morning at 5 am. We are made up experience from life. Part of the makeup that I have of attempting to reach out the less fortunate has come from this exposure to the ethos and philosophy of the sikh community. It's a wonderful thing, all of us need to learn that it will serves us well. 

When we saw this massive human tragedy when millions of people became homeless, even though all religious places were closed, gurdwaras were serving langar. In Delhi, gurdwaras were serving over 1 lakh meals to migrant workers everyday.

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.
