In the multipurpose room at the Nyumburu Cultural Center yesterday, a free dinner of traditional Indian food was served to anyone who showed up, regardless of their race, color, ethnicity or religion.

The catch: They all had to eat on the floor.

The dinner was called a langar, a Punjabi word meaning "free kitchen." An important event for adherents to Sikhism, the dinner was hosted by the Sikh Students Association.
