Solar Cooking System At Golden Temple

Recommended Posts

To save the Golden Temple from the ill-effects of pollution, a plan is afoot to prepare “langar” with the help of a solar steam cooking system.

The plan is being chalked out by the Punjab Energy Development Agency (PEDA). A survey by Faridabad-based Max Engineering India Private Limited was carried out in this regard today.

The firm’s director, Dr Gurmeet Singh, said the facility would be established in various phases. In the first phase, equipment will be installed to prepare ‘dal’. To prepare “langar” for 50,000 to 60,000 devotees daily at the Golden Temple, one tonne ‘dal’ is cooked. “By cooking ‘dal’ with the help of steam, we will save at least 25 LPG cylinders and also keep the environment pollution-free,” said Gurmeet Singh.

PEDA chairman Manjeet Singh said they would bear the entire project cost.

Meanwhile, the Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee is also planning to make Delhi gurdwaras solar-powered and ‘nagar kirtans’ plastic-free. Making this announcement, on the “Sikh Environment Day”, DSGMC chief Paramjit Singh Sarna said they would ban disposables in all the Delhi gurdwaras soon.

That's great! My chacha ji once bought a solar cooker (basically a piece of black carbon fiber with reflectors and a clear fiber cover). You were able to place a pressure cooker inside it and after 4-7 hours you could finish a sabji. Harnessing the power of the energy is probably the cleaneast energy form right now and with the right engineering it will become more and more efficient.

great stuff. Western Sangat should help support these kind of initiatives in the form of writing letters congratulating the panthic authorities and sponsoring such initiatives financially.

Excellent news.

    • They fought for British for their independence of PUNJAB, not for money.
    • Buddhism was penetrated far long ago by Hindu Religious heads.... There is no Buddhism in India anymore.... at current pace, Sikhism will be buried too.... And most of you wont even notice it.... Cuz you've been doing things told by your mahapurakhs and never have you ever tried following SGGS ji. That is why ,to prove something, most people refers to KATHAS of BABBEys and not actual BANI. cuz they know they never read anything like that in BANI..  
    • Who knows, at current State we won't even notice when someone like guru Nanak will come and go.... If guru Nanak was to share his views today with the sikhs, then he'll probably get (I apologise for using this word ) ex-communicated by taksalis.
    • @S1ngh @ADMIN @MOD strange how a recent post of mine that said the same thing about non-panjabi converts was deleted, presumably after being reported, yet its fine to say it about panjabis? why one rule for us and another for converts? havent u seen the stuff some of them do? they are in no way superior to us so please lose your inferiority complex, any mental shackles and think again before doing matha tek to them - oppressing an opinion thats based on observation and speaks the truth just to appease to potential converts is quite pathetic and doesnt serve the actual purpose of this forum.. if it was reported by certain posters, they need to do the same - u might think ur clever but the truth hurt u..and oppressing it too only makes you come across weird liberals pursuing a 'religious' agenda...
