It was ten at night and the Guru Granth Sahib had been taken to rest for the night but the place was still buzzing with life. Devotees were resting or doing voluntary services – cleaning, scrubbing, dusting, sweeping, mopping. The gateways do not have gates and welcome all people at any point of time.
