'Langar on Wheels' Sikh Cycle Rally, marked the beginning of this international campaign. About 40 cyclists rode 21 kms on the streets of Delhi while sharing Langar with the homeless and people on streets. The participants spread awareness about the relevance and principles of Langar with Delhiites by sharing leaflets and leaving them with some food for thought.

The campaign is international with the UK, USA, India, Malaysia, Singapore, Australia & Canada taking part. In India, the activities will be carried out in Delhi, Gurgaon, Chandigarh, Mumbai, Pune, Bangalore, Ahmedabad, Bhopal, Varanasi, Amritsar, Ludhiana etc.
