This report includes running of Bhai Fauja Singh with Olympic Torch and volunteers who prepared and served Roti Rolls during the London Olympics Torch Relay.
Fauja Singh – The greatest Sikh Sports Personality Alive and Puran Gursikh was carrier of the Olympic Torch through the streets of east London. Fauja Singh, who is 101-years-old, undertook the relay for the second time – he carried the torch in Athens eight years ago. He defied age to participate in several marathons, he was the star torch carrier of London 2012.
During this event, Sikhs served 20,000 vegetarian meals (Langar) in celebration of this momentous occasion to passers by and made an effort to spread the message of Guru Nanak, founder of Sikhism. Fauja Singh is the oldest ever Olympic Torch bearer in the Olympics. He is a living legend who is an inspiration to all of us. We are honoured to have met and spent time with him.
The langar 2012 project was initiated by United Sikhs a UN-affiliated, international non-profit NGO, humanitarian relief, human development and advocacy organisation. Fifteen Gurdwaré participated in this event.
