Gurdwara Sis Ganj, Old Delhi, India: Sangat (devotee) helping prepare large amount of food for the langar (free kitchen). The Langar or free kitchen was started by the first Sikh Guru, Guru Nanak Dev Ji. It is designed to uphold the principle of equality between all people of the world regardless of religion, caste, colour, creed, age, gender or social status.
