    Apparently a set of armour inscribed with gurbani, that could have belonged to Dasmesh pita himself is being auctioned by Sothebys on the 9th April. I presume it was looted by the British after the Anglo-Sikh wars.




    It makes me wonder what other Sikh relics are hidden in private collections here?

    Also a rare painting of Guru Harkrishen is also being auctioned by another well known company (Christies)

    There is a similar thread posted yesterday, and today we hear that SGPC is petitioning the Court of St. James and the English government to intervene.
