Milk of kindness flows unabated

Sangrur, December 27

Following Gurus' preachings, many villages are organising langars (community kitchen) in the memory of Sahibzadas of Guru Gobind Singh apart from supplying ration and milk to protesters on the Delhi border, petrol pumps and toll plazas every day. Hundreds of commuters partake of kheer, parshad, pakoras, hot tea, besides meal, daily at these sites.

Despite being hit by Covid-19, ongoing farm stir and a slump in earning, there is no dearth of essential commodities at various locations.

"We are only serving what God has given us. Apart from ration, our village supplies 100 litres of milk to the protesters at Kalajhar toll plaza, 200 litres to Delhi protesters and 200 litres for langar daily. We have enough stock and may start supply to another location, if required," said Avtar Singh from Gharachon village while serving kheer to commuters on the Sunam-Bhawanigarh road. They started the langar three days ago and would continue the service for two more days. A group of women, who came to cook chapatis, said the langar dedicated to Sahibzadas was an annual affair, but this year's farm stir had inspired them to go the extra mile.

Supplying 500 litres a day to protesters

"I have two buffaloes, but am not selling milk these days as all goes to protesters at various locations. There are more like me," said Balwinder Kaur, an elderly woman.

Similar is the story of Kothe Akalgarh and Kothe Gobindpura villages in Barnala district. "Apart from langar near Dhanaula on the Sangrur-Barnala road, we have been supplying ration and milk to protesters at Badbar toll plaza and petrol pump near here ever since the beginning of the protest," said Gurwinder Singh, a resident from Kothe Akalgarh village.

Villagers contribute voluntarily after announcement is made on the public address system.
