Bhai Taru Singh Di Shaheedi

Description Bhai Taru Singh (1720-1745) a celebrated Sikh martyr who sacrificed his life to defend his faith is the hero of many a poetic ballads and legendary tales. Accused of aiding and harbouring Sikh militants during the governorship of Punjab under Zakariya Khan, he was scalped alive and tortured brutally. The present volume sings the Sikh martyr's sacrifices in the popular folklorist 'qissa' style of poetry written in rhyming racy couplets, it narrates the biographical details, his service to the Sikh crusaders, his arrest and his final execution. The stance of the composition is highly emotive and heart moving. Its recitation is likely to cast a spell on the audience[edit]
