The Great Sikh Warrior: Baghel Singh

Avtar Singh Berar (Author)
Synopsis Baghel Singh was a tall and handsome young Sardar of wheatish complexion and had grey eyes. He was brave and daring, financially well off and large hearted. He was not afraid of anything and moved about as fearlessly as a lion in the jungle. He was a good horseman, an excellent marksman who could wield his sword as deftly as his gun. His powerful metallic voice could strike terror in the heart of many a warrior. Even his attire reflected his imposing personality. He dealt with his enemies without remorse, but was extremely gentle and kind with the poor, the helpless and the underprivileged. Sardar Baghel Singh earned nine lakh rupees annually from the land he ruled, which spread far and wide. He had a powerful position but he never misused it. On the contrary, he displayed equality, integrity and wisdom in all his actions and decisions, Farmers, traders and shopkeepers admired him for his fair and just treatment for everyone, irrespective of power and status. The area under his control was divided into three different parts-the first was Hariana is Hoshiarpur, the second Chhalodi near Karnal and the third Kalanaur. However, all historians agree that it was Baghel Singh only who had delivered severe blow to the Mughal power from which they never recovered. Baghel Singh has an important place in the annals of Sikh history. He has left an indelible mark on seven historical Gurdwaras in Delhi. During the reign of the Mughal emperor, Shah Alam II, he boldly and fearlessly constructed seven Gurdwaras.
