While an overwhelmed Dhruv insists that their kindness has changed his life, Paramjit Singh who serves as a music teacher at the academy run by the gurudwara says they were just following the teachings of the Sikh Gurus.
“Concern for others is central to the teachings of Sikhism. And giving to someone who is hungry is seen as giving to God – but only if it is genuine giving from the heart. We haven’t done anything extraordinary for Dhruv. We will continue to do what we can for him and anyone who comes to the gurudwara,” says Mr Singh.
Dhruv who has been turning up at the gurudwara ever since that day says he wants to share this story with all those international students feeling “lost and deprived” during the pandemic.
