Trring…! The doorbell rang. When Manpreet opened the
door she saw Divya and Swastik there. She called out
excitedly, “Gurnoor! Look who has come.” Gurnoor came
running. When she saw her friends she hugged them
happily. “When did you come from the hostel (Boarding
School)?” “Just Yesterday. Where are your parents? We
want to meet them,” Swastik said.
“They are at the Gurudwara. We were about to go there
too,” Gurnoor replied. “Oh good, we will also come with
you,” said Divya.
“You come home only in the vacations. Do you like
staying in your hostel? You must be missing your parents,”
Gurnoor asked.

Divya said, “We do miss them, but hostel life is fun. Even if
we don’t always like the food, we enjoy eating together with all
the children.”
“You know, when someone in our hostel gets home-made
food, we all rush to their rooms. That food finishes within
minutes,” Swastik said laughingly.

The children chatted all the way to the
Gurudwara. There, they covered their
heads.
They went into kitchen of the
Gurudwara. It was very huge. A lot of
activity was going on there. Food was
being cooked in huge vessels. On one side
the channa and urad dal was boiling.

In another vessel, the cau-
liflower and potato vegeta-
ble was being made. “There
is your Papa! Gurnoor, let
us go and meet him,”
Swastik said.
“What are you doing
here?” Manjit Singh was
happy to see the children.
“Uncle, can we also help in the kitchen? What are you
preparing?” Swastik asked.
Manjit Singh said, “I am preparing kadhah prasad. It takes
a lot of effort to roast the flour in ghee in this big kadhai.”
“This is a kind of halwa. Isn’t it? When will you add sugar in
it?” Divya asked.
They saw Manpreet’s mother and rushed to meet her. Divya
asked, “What are you doing Aunty?” “Beta, we are rolling
chapaties to bake
them in this
tandoor.” “So many
chapaties at one
go!” Divya was
surprised. “Can I
help?” “Sure! come
and try, here
everyone can help,
but wash your
hands first,” replied
Aunty.

Divya washed her hands and
joined the group near the tava.
The tava was very hot. She
started applying ghee on the
chapaties as they were being
taken out of the tava.
Swastik wondered aloud, “Who
brings all the material to cook so
much food?” One of the ladies
answered, “Everyone here
contributes in some way or the
other. Some arrange for the
material, some give money, and
others help in the work”.
“So Swastik, how do you like it? Have you ever cooked before?”
teased Manpreet.
“No, but I am enjoying working with everyone, ” said Swastik.
We hardly realised how all this food – chapaties, rice, halwa,
dal and vegetable – got prepared so fast.
After ardaas, kadhah prasad was distributed. Some of the
boys quickly laid out  durries in the verandah and all the people
sat down in rows to have langar. Some people served food and
others served water. Everyone ate together.
After finishing food everyone picked up one’s own plate, and
put it in a big drum. People who were serving, ate in the end.
They cleaned the place and washed the utensils.
