Travelling in India - Gurudwara langars

4 posts in this topic

Hi guys,

I'm going to India later this month, and would really like to go to a Gurudwara and have langar. I've got a few questions though. I know that it is meant for needy people that cannot afford a meal. I'm a western man and could afford to pay for a meal. Is it culturally insensitive for me to come along? That's the opposite of what I want to do as I thought it would be a great cultural experience. Is there somewhere that I can donate in the Gurudwara to help?

Thanks for any advice,

Might sound like one of those super fatties you see eating the Langar, you know the ones who do nothing else except munch on food and gossip but here goes.

Definitely try the Langar at Harmandir Sahib, had the honour of visiting Nanaksar too and the Langar there was amazing (this was when I was a kid though) and Patasi are just to die for.

    • Just saying, if there is a ban on our turban(s) then there will be a new era of protests. 
    • Speaking up against the Indian Govt might cause problems and horrible propagandas so I think we should do this low key since we need to do MORE than just Protesting, we need to actually INVEST!
