    We have all heard about and know about traditional ways of meeting Gurdwara expenses that is using Sangat's Daswandh money or Charhawa. whenever there is a need for funds, management usually let the Sangat know of & Sangat contribute as per their wishes (shardha)
    A local Gurdwara has started a new way of raising funds for the Gurdwara. Actually it has been a 'Sikh Centre' for many years (w/o Nashan Sahib, where langar is prepared with shoes on and heads uncovered, it is served like a buffett and eaten on charis where people socialize while they eat).
    This Gurdwara management is arranging for dinner in the Langar Hall (which is rented out for parties on the weekdays) with some entertainment (probably with some singer who sings hindi filmi songs or gazals) & they are calling it a 'Sangat Appreciation Dinner'. They plan to raise $30-$35K with this.
    We were approched by a respected elder to be part of it & I refused. I feel bad for saying 'no' to uncle ji & wondering why would some Gursikhs be part of it?
    I wish to know what you think of it? What would you if you are asked to come to this dinner and show your support not only with money but also with your presence?

    Thank you,

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
