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:

Everyone can learn from sikhism: Zafar Iqbal, Former Captain, Coach & Selector, Indian Hockey Team
I remember when Indian Airlines team went to USA to play a tournament in 1979 and 1980, twice we stayed in gurdwara, because of financial crunch. We needed help from them. They really helped us with lunch, breakfast, dinner. They also took us to the field from the gurdwara and then bring us back because we had no conveyance. The sikh community is about brotherhood. When we muslims had no place to read namaz, gurdwara opened their door for us to read namaz. We have enjoyed their support and we should encourage the lessons learnt from sikhism.

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.
