University College London Students to Feed Langgar to 3000 over Six Hours
 
University College London, London, UK - The Sikh Society students of University College London will prepare and serve langgar (hot community meal) to some 3000 people during a six hour non-stop session from 10am to 4pm on 27th November 2009 at the South Cloisters, Main Building, on Gower Street. This will be the third time the Sikh Society will be laying on Langgar to thousands, to mark the end of its Seva (selfless service) week that is held every year.
 
The hot meal will be served to students, staff and visitors who will sit cross-legged on mats with their heads covered as a mark of respect for the langgar that is prepared at a Sikh Gurdwara.
 
The Langgar service will be followed at 4pm with a candle light vigil, at the same venue, jointly organised with Voices For Freedom, UNITED SIKHS and the British Sikh Students Federation. The vigil is being held to commemorate the unending wait for justice suffered by Sikh victims of the 1984 pogroms in India. The vigil details are here
 
The UCL Sikh Society is seeking volunteers to help prepare and serve the Langgar and to participate in the vigil. For more details see the poster here.

Our Mission

To transform underprivileged and minority communities and individuals into informed and vibrant members of society through civic, educational and personal development programs, by fostering active participation in social and economic activity.

UNITED SIKHS is also an avenue for networking between like-minded organisations to establish and nurture meaningful projects and dialogues - whether social, cultural or political- to promote harmony, understanding and reciprocity in our villages, towns and cities.

UNITED SIKHS is a coalition of organisations and individuals, who share a common vision based on the belief that there is no greater endeavour than to serve, empower and uplift fellow beings. The core of our philosophy is an unwavering commitment to civic service and social progress on behalf of the common good.

Accordingly, UNITED SIKHS has sought to fulfil its mission not only by informing, educating and uplifting fellow beings but also by participating in cross-cultural and political exchanges to ensure that the promises and benefits of democracy are realized by all.

We at UNITED SIKHS believe that the development of enlightened and progressive societies can be made possible by socially conscious groups of people who make a commitment to develop and direct human potential. Our work, efforts and achievements stand as a testament to our faith in this vision.
