Delhi/ Community

One of the things you notice in India is how caring the people are. There is a strong sense of community.  Covering our heads, taking off our shoes and socks, and stepping through the water to clean ourselves, we were welcomed into the local Sikh temple, the SisGanji Gurdwara (meaning teacher that shows the path). On entering you hear the chants of the priest and the local people praying and watch them kissing the floor in worship. After some moments to reflect and observe we went through to the eating area. Members of the Sikh community from all walks of life offer their time to help run the kitchen, cooking and serving food to anyone who would like it. These temples are funded by local donations and are able to help the community by giving a way of survival to those on the street.
