Raat di Roti/ਰਾਤ ਦੀ ਰੋਟੀ Connecting Punjabi-speaking families and isolated older people to share an evening meal Touchstone Sikh Elders connects Punjabi-speaking families with Punjabi-speaking isolated older people to foster cross-generational relationships. Once a fortnight, volunteers share the evening meal, or raat di roti, together. This could be either in the volunteer's home or in the elder's home. Through the ritual of eating together, stories and wisdom are shared and exchanged and a stronger sense of community develops. So guess who’s coming to dinner.... ਰਾਤ ਦੀ ਰੋਟੀ ਰਾਤ ਦੀ ਰੋਟੀ ਦਾ ਪ੍ਰਾਜੈਕਟ ਪੰਜਾਬੀ ਬੋਲਣ ਵਾਲੇ ਬਜ਼ੁਰਗਾਂ ਤਕ ਪਹੁੰਚ ਕਰਦਾ ਹੈ ਜੋ ਬਜ਼ੁਰਗ ਲੀਡਜ਼ ਵਿੱਚ ਸਮਾਜਿਕ ਇਕਲਤਾ ਦਾ ਤਰਜ਼ਬਾ ਅਨੁਭਵ ਕਰਦੇ ਹਨ। ਬਜ਼ੁਰਗਾਂ ਅਤੇ ਵਲੰਟੀਅਰ ਪਰਿਵਾਰਾਂ ਲਈ ਇਕਠੇ ਭੋਜਨ ਖਾਣ, ਕਹਾਣੀਆ ਸਾਂਝੀਆ ਕਰਨ ਅਤੇ ਆਪਣੇ ਜੀਵਨ ਦੇ ਤਜਰਬਿਆ ਨੂੰ ਸਾਂਝੇ ਕਰਨ ਦਾ ਇੱਕ ਮੌਕਾ ਪ੍ਰਦਾਨ ਕਰਦਾ ਹੈ। As of September 2016, older people participating in the Raat di Roti project had enjoyed 216 dinners in total. One participant said that while she was a bit hesitant at first, she greatly enjoys the dinners and looks forward to her volunteer visiting every other week. Mrs B and her matched volunteer enjoy a meal together. "There is a massive age gap between us but it doesn't matter, because we always have a lot to talk about." The volunteer added, "I like making a difference and it makes me happy to know she is happy."

And so the much publicised Khanda has collapsed less than a year after inaugaration. I kind of feel this indicates that hankaari projects like this , using symbols made up and usurped by sgpc should be shunned and shut down. http://activepunjab.com/worlds-highest-khanda-collapsed/
