Woman Care Trust organised free 2 x buses to Tauranga for 90 ladies of Indian Community. The Journey started with reciting religious prayer by the ladies in the bus and also enjoyed singing many Punjabi folk songs. The first destination of the tour was “Gurudwara Shri Kalgidhar Sahib Tauranga”, which is the famous religious place in New Zealand connected to Indian Diaspora. All the ladies recited religious prayer & “Kirtan” at the temple which filled the atmosphere with religious & spiritual feeling. The ladies get positive energy with reciting these prayers and also get peace of mind. The Sikh Temple committee had arranged “Langar” for the ladies, after the prayers all ladies enjoyed the “Langar” and were very thankful to all the people at Sikh temple for the arrangements and serving them the food. Next stop of the tour was “Memorial Park”, which is loved by Tauranga families for generations, this park and playground has something for everyone.
