Ludhiana, Mar 15: In a fitting tribute to the seventh Sikh Guru Har Rai, who was also an ardent environmentalist, a 57-year old farmer from Ludhiana hosted an ‘organic langar‘ on Monday at his farm to observe ‘Sikh Environment Day’.

In a langar (community kitchen), where more than 100 people attended, the menu included food and drinks prepared completely from organically grown vegetables, cereals and even the desserts were prepared using indigenous breed ‘Sahiwal’ cow’s milk.

The langar, primarily a Sikh tradition, was also attended by Deputy Shahi Imam Usman Ludhianvi from Jama Masjid, Ludhiana. The attendees were gifted neem and flowers saplings to mark the day.
