For a little more than 400 odd years now, Gurudwaras have a special place in our culture. No true Indian has not visited one and specially had langar in a Gurudwara. Most of us have regularly been doing so ever since I can remember. Again a tribute to the spirit of pluralism engrained in our national psyche. In fact for the majority of us it is difficult to distinguish the teachings of the great Sikh gurus and their own example from that of the cultural icons associated with other religions.
If we ignore the recent noise trying to carve-out a radically separate identity because of political motivations and just look at hard evidence, there is no clear line dividing the gurudwaras from other places of worship associated with popular Indian culture. One of the many evidences proving this is that until a few years ago the keepers of these shrines were the Udasi Mahants.
The traditions of Langar and sewa have also been central to the popular Indian culture through the ages. Luckily the Millennium city happens to have its share of these wonderfully maintained symbols of our culture. The enterprising and business savvy community has not shied away from using the internet to spread their message, so there are other sources on the web where you can learn about Gurudwaras. Read on to find out more.
