New Delhi: Gurupurab was celebrated in Dwarka today with traditional gaiety. Devotees from across the city flocked to a Gurudwara at Sector 11 and celebrated the birth anniversary of the first Guru of Sikhism, Guru Nanak Dev.
Large number of people irrespective of their culture, community, sect and creed joined the celebration. Some volunteered to organise langar (community feast) at the Gurudwara while others were seen serving the visitors and passersby with water, cold drinks and other beverages.
General secretary of Gurudwara Committee Devender Pal Singh said, “This is the biggest celebration in the area as this is the only Gurudwara here. Thousands of people visit here every year. We made proper arrangements for the visitors. We have also provided a free e-rickshaw facility for visitors from the parking area up to the Gurudwara entrance.”
Representatives from many RWAs and social organisations were also seen serving people as volunteers on the occasion called Gurupurab. People from Parmarthi, an NGO working for clean Dwarka, were engaged in maintaining the sanitation of the entire area.
Besides the huge celebration at the Gurudwara, bhandaras (feasting) were organised at other places such as outside the societies and in the market premises.
