THE SARBANS DANI – SRI GURU GOBIND SINGH
BY SONIKA SINGH
As I turn the pages to witness the history of humankind,
A personality like Sri Guru Gobind Singh ji is impossible to find!
There was no one like him in the past, in the present, or will be in the future,
Who sacrificed his father, sons, and himself for his nation, beliefs, justice, and culture.
For the sake of Kashmiri Pandits, he lost his father to the Mughal atrocity,
His father, gave away his head, to safeguard the Hindu religion and humanity.
His works Jaap Sahib, Bachitar Natak, Akal Ustat, Zafarnama surpass literary excellence,
Saint in times of peace and soldier in the war is his divine life’s essence.
On the Vaisakhi of 1699, he founded the Khalsa – a benevolent warrior community,
Gave Identity of the five K’s of kacha, karah, kirpan, kangha, kes to fight cruelty
Fought13 battles with Mughals and Siwalik kings to restore equality and peace,
It was the Dharam Yudh against evil, not a battle for resources, power or greed.
In the bloodiest battle of Chamkaur,Sahibzada Ajit andJujhar, kissed martyrdom at the tender ages of eighteen and fourteen
The Chote Sahibzade Zorawar and Fateh were bricked alive when eight and six, an example of courage, righteousness, and fortitude never before seen.
My Kalghidhar Patshah, Sarbans Dani, at the martyrdom of his sons, only remarked, “What if four sons have died, for thousands (of my sons and daughters) live on!”
Indebted, and blessed is humanity, this world, and the land of Hindustan, where Sri Guru Gobind Singh, this Sant Sipahi was born!
Guru Gobind Singh ji de Gurupurab Di lakh Vadhayee!
