Langar Day Organised At The University Of Waterloo


A Langar Day was organised at the University of Waterloo, Canada campus on 10th September, 2013 by the Sikh Students Association as a part of September being observed as the Mata Khivi Ji month by the Sikh Youth Federation, Canada. The evant was attended by a large number of students and faculty belonging to different communities. In fact, for the last few years Sikh university students at the University of Waterloo have been holding langar days on their campus, bringing food from their Gurdwara to campus to share with all students. They use the occasion to explain the nature of Sikhism to others curious to know more about Sikh adherents, and to understand why they promote themselves through food.
