On the Eve of Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji’s birthday, I got the chance to shoot the langar (Free Food) preparation at 4:00 am at Gurudwara Nada Sahib, Panchkula.  This is the first video I shot with my camera and uploaded on YouTube. The purity in the surroundings, Kirtan (Devotional Songs) echoing in the premises, everybody’s celebrating Guru Nanak’s birthday, you just dive into the pious ocean. Even if you are not religious or do not believe in God, but present there at the moment, the whole aura just pulls you in.
