LANGAR

Punarjyot serves free tea to less fortunate 

With a view to providing free succor to the less fortunate folks in the wake of the intense cold wave sweeping the region, Punarjyot, a socio-cultural organization, and an offshoot of Spring Dale Educational Society, organized langar in which steaming hot tea was served free of cost to the passersby, especially the underprivileged ones.

The stall, which was organized outside Spring Dale Senior School, was an immense hit as folks thronged it throughout the day. Dr Kirat Sandhu Cheema, Director, Punarjyot said that the langar was organized to carry forward the philanthropic legacy initiated by her parents late Dr Shivinder Singh Sandhu and Mrs Manveen Sandhu.

“The langar, in which steaming hot tea was served, was organized to tell the masses that just like our beloved founders we are always there to serve the society, especially the poor and the downtrodden,” she said. Mr Sahiljit Singh Sandhu, Director and Managing Trustee, Spring Dale Educational Society (SDES), said that the langar was an expression of the legacy of philanthropy initiated by the founders of the SDES and the institutions being run under its aegis. “We intend to carry forward this legacy,” he said
