    With daggers drawn and swords clashed of steel
    With dauntless courage and linked suffering for feel
    The merciful warrior forwarded amid fight and pity
    For both his friends and foes
    Now drenched in bloods of futility.

    Frets and fears of egoism now laid aside
    His only concern now became
    To fight for the liberty of his mind
    Not for diversions or for abandoned castled dearth
    Not for the prized glory in the eyes of the world.
    Driven to edge for his hatred of tyranny
    He showered his message of dignity for all sundry
    His hand extended for support without caste or creeds
    Amid sanctity of sufferings and all hallowed deeds.

    Scribing Bachittar Natak his dramatic verse
    Wondrous play of nature amid works of divine
    Worlds of action or of contemplation
    Beyond the little thine or mine
    In jungles of Trai & Machiwara his tortures confined.

    Here where men hate and taste blood in consummation
    Indifference in ignorance of vultured eliminations
    Great loss of innocents of his sons he endured
    Among bitter smites but his poise he secured
    The Sant Sipahi then reluctantly took to his sword
    To defend dignity of Hind against marauding hordes.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
