Langar means the free food that is served in a Gurudwara to Sikhs and non-Sikhs. Basically in the Gurudwara near our place in florida, every sunday some family volunteers to sponser and prepare food for everyone. I was all very excited to take part in the process. Personally we were very happy to be a part of their experience. It gave us an oppurtunity to learn something about Sikh religion and culture.
This is the kitchen where the food was prepared in the Gurudwara.
A lot of preperation was done on saturday evening. We had to cook food for around 200 to 250 people.
On Sunday few people start arriving early morning in Gurudwara.
People start the day with an exercise session in the morning.
The stoves were lit in the kitchen.
A lot of volunteers arrive to cook food for the langar.
Our friend Lehar's mom was very helpful in supervising the cooking. She is busy in making Dal Makhani.
A lot of other volunteers arrived to make Rotis.
The tradition of langar is all about sharing, community, inclusiveness and oneness of all humankind.
Langar upholds the principle of equality between all people regardless of religion, caste, colour, creed, age, gender or social status.
