These people were forced to go to Sector 18 Gurudwara as there was nothing nearby. For happiness, sad moments, and final goodbyes they were supposed to take a long way, which was problematic for ladies and small kids as well.

This dream has not come true by luck, there stands a long long wait and a turmoil of efforts

How was the planning finally executed?

When we were digging for the foundation, there was water all over. This was a big struggle to fill the foundation. Now the foundation is so strong that one cannot shake it for 200 years. We kept doing sangat and were constructing this building and today we are celebrating Gurupurab here.”

Gurudwara is not only for langar there are a lot more

Narendra Singh Babbar, General Manager of the Gurudwara committee says, “Maximum people only know about langar. Gurudwara is not only limited to this, when a Gurudwara is constructed we first put the nishan sab. It means we can take any kind of sewa, this signifies that in whatever problem you have, here is the solution. Our committee served a lot during COVID-19 times, we cooked meals for COVID-19 patients when the world was locked inside, and we came and cooked langar and served to people everywhere. We also purchased the concentrators and served the needy. Very soon there will be a dispensary here.
