The Langar of Gurudwara Bangla Sahib

Every gurdwara has a Langar, or kitchen, that prepares food which is given freely to anyone, no matter the gender, colour, race, religion, creed, caste, age, or social status, and in doing so, establishing equality. The food is prepared by gursikhs and an army of volunteers. The volunteers do everything from chopping, preparing and cooking. Anyone can volunteer, any one can be a part of this system, anyone can be a part of the community.

Gokarna, more than just beaches

Gokarna, more than just beaches

Gokarna is a historic Hindu pilgrimage site. Gokarna actually means Cow's Ear. It is believed that Lord Shiva emerged from the ear of a cow (Prithvi, the Mother Earth) here. It is at the ear-shaped confluence of two rivers Gangavali and Aghanashini. [wiki]
But this isn't a story about that, this is a story about the back streets away from the beach. The maze of busy and quiet streets, with lots of people sat on the their front steps stoop watching the world pass by!
