Special preparations were made for the day in the local gurdwara to celebrate the birth anniversary of the first guru of the Sikh religion, which falls on the day of Kartik Purnima every year. In Tangla the followers of the religion made a beeline to the gurdwaras since morning and took part in langar (community lunch), a tradition started by Guru Nanak to encourage brotherhood and fellow feeling among all sections, irrespective of caste and creed.
