Langar- Ek Sachha Sauda

“Jin Sayvi- aa tin paa-i-aa maan ( Those who served, obtained honor- got his acceptance)”  are the dawn time divine words you get to hear in long, narrow and steep lanes of Patna Saheb, reverberating and gracefully settling deep inside of you. More than routine and mightier than words, this is an honest attempt to the divine connection.

Much before the recitation starts and long before the sun comes into view when Jhingur’s  chirping is all your ear receive and the dim flickering light is all adding warmth to the scene, some other offerings are performed in unique ways behind the thin, high bluish walls, under the semi plastered ceiling. People, doing selfless services, talking in hushed tones, tap water running down fast, dishes being done, floors being moped, morning langar items being prepared and transferred to Langar Hall, as if everything happens here on its own, without any hindrance, without any confliction

The concept of Langar came into origin in the 16th century.  It was proposed to uphold the selfless idea of equality amongst the plethora of human civilization. In addition to the ideals of equality, the tradition of langar expresses and emphasizes the ethics of sharing, community, inclusiveness, and oneness.

Gurudrwara still believes in Nanak’s Sacha Sauda and operates accordingly. His glory and words of wisdom continue to inspire the folks. Even today, the amount of money spent in langar is never of concern. Followers donate huge amounts to Gurudwara to help in the upkeep and continue the langar service without hindrance. People, who have no one, who stays on street, are fed and blessed every day without any discrimination, with due respect and humanly affection.

Cynosure by Sara Wadhwa

About Cynosure 

Cynosure is a word that means “a person or thing that is the center of attention or admiration.”

When taken at face value, the word seems to describe whatever may capture one’s interest or fancy, such as the subject of a photograph or marvelous scenery.

When pronounced, however, it sounds like a fusion of the words cyan and azure. Cyan is a light, greenish-blue color, and is one of the primary colors of ink used in photo printing. Azure, a bright blue color like that of a cloudless sky, has a calming effect on the eyes and a relaxing touch on a frantic mind.

A juxtaposition of these two interpretations of the word cynosure, encapsulates the theme that guides this display, just like the pole star, which was once referred to as the cynosure of the sky.

All proceeds from the photo exhibition will go towards the Gujrati Samaj Educational Trust through UdayREP. The Uday Rural Education Program (UdayREP) is a charitable trust dedicated to improving the lives of school children in rural India by raising funds for specific causes that can make a significant positive difference
