Sikh man hailed as Australian Of The Day

A Sikh Australian hailed ‘Australian of The Day’ as he prepares Langar to feed the homeless after his 12 hour night shift.

For the past three years, Tejinder Pal Singh has dedicated the last Sunday of the month to feeding the poor and needy locals of northern Darwin, using his own income. He prepares vegetarian dishes which he then packs into huge containers and serves as a free lunch to the most needy and vulnerable people in his local Darwin.

This concept may have seen him being hailed as Australian of The Day, however serving others, langar and donating a part of your income for those who need it more is all part of a Sikhs life. Tejinder Pal Singh doesn’t feel that he is doing something out of the ordinary and simply following the life and duties of a Sikh.
