Baba Makhan Singh ji in Amritsar regularly organizes huge, I mean, huge, weddings, not only for Sikhs but for Hindus and Moslems as well. How about 5,000 couples? There is no charge to the couples or their families.
As well as organizing the ceremonies he gets donations of blankets and other household goods for the couples. This is an incredible seva that takes financial pressure off so many poor families.

He has organized another ceremony - actually ceremonies, because they are held sequentially for Sikh, Moslem & Hindu, all during the same time period - coming up on the 11th November.

Don't know who goes first but perhaps it is Sikh, Moslem, and Hindu. Then they serve langar for everyone. The logistics are, of course, gigantic.

If I were to be in India at that time - I will not, unfortunately - I would surely be there rather than in Rishikesh with Yogi Bhajan cult followers who seem to be only interested in self-first generosity and lining their pockets with money from starry eyed western yoga students who want some kind of supernatural experience from tantra/mantra navel-gazing yoga kriyas.
