The warning has been issued that India needs to adapt to increased water scarcity, droughts, floods, cyclones, and other natural disasters.

Indian Meteorological Department issues a warning of the approaching Cyclone Gulab which will hit Andhra Pradesh and Odisha on 26th September 2021. Heavy rainfall can be expected in northern states till 28th September 2021. It is the third September Cyclone of the century that came knocking on our door unexpectedly. The country has already faced major damage left behind by Cyclone Tauktae and Cyclone Yaas in May. These are the warnings from our environment about the increasing climate change which is becoming more and more severe with days passing by.

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) releases a report on how human-induced climate change is gathering pace and how extreme weather events have reached our doorsteps every seven-year or so. IPCC released a report in August 2021 and issued an environmental warning for India to cut down its carbon emissions to avoid a climate catastrophe. India is the third-largest carbon emitter in the world, the first two being China and the US. In Paris Climate Agreement India pledged to reduce its carbon footprint by 33-35% from 2005 levels by 2030. India aims to produce 40 percent of its power from non-fossil fuel sources by 2030. India's carbon emissions fell 24 percent from 2005 levels by 2016- in 11 years. However, India has not yet set out a target for when it will start reducing total emissions (the so-called peak emission year).

The Golden Temple has the World's Biggest Communal Kitchen that operates 24×7 and serves about 100,000 people each day.

Langar means "free food for all". Langar is served by the community kitchens at all gurudwaras regardless of caste, gender, religion, economic status, or ethnicity. The idea behind langar is equality and "the light of God is in all hearts." Langar Sewa was started by the First Guru of Sikhs- Guru Nanak Ji. The meaning behind langar teaches us to come together, sit alongside each and eat as equals, no one has a higher status than another while sitting in the langar. It is a sanctuary of all where all are welcome, treated, and protected equally. The place where the food is cooked in Gurudwaras is referred to as "Communal Kitchen", which is usually managed by the volunteers, who do all the work from cutting vegetables, serving food to washing the dirty dishes. The notable fact about Langar is that all the food that is served is vegetarian, simple, and nutritionally balanced with roti, vegetable dish, lentils, and dessert.

The story behind Langar

The first Guru of Sikhs- Guru Nanak Ji started Langar in the Golden Temple located in Amritsar, Punjab. But what gave him the idea of feeding people all equally? The story goes as when Guru Nanak Ji was a child his father who was a well-known trader in his village gave Guru Nanak 20 rupees and asked him to go to the market and do 'Sacha Sauda' (a good bargain). His father wanted Guru Nanak who was then only a 12-year-old boy about their family business. So, did Guru Nanak went and did some worldly bargain in the market? No, instead he bought food with the money and fed a large group of saints who had been hungry for days and that is what he called was the "true business". The holy book of Sikhism "The Guru Granth Sahib" is kept in all gurudwaras, it contains numerous meaningful teachings of the Guru and is worshiped by the Sikhs. The three main pillars of Sikhism, "Naam Japo" "Kirat Karo" and "Vand chakho" (meditate the Guru's name, lead an honest life and earn an honest and dedicated living by walking on the path that the Gurus have made for us, share what you eat respectively) are the reason why humanity, equality and serving those in need are the primary actions taken by any Gurudrawa.
