Battle of Chamkaur - Sahibzada Ajit Singh by Bhagat Singh prints - www.sikhiart.com Background Storyline: Sahibzada Ajit Singh's horse has been seriously wounded, forcing Ajit Singh to fight on foot. The young Prince, after being wounded himself, notices a Mughal cannon being readied for the seige. He charges the infantry that guard it. Some high ranking Bhumi militiamen and Cavalrymen see his strategy and rush to the spot... The story of course is based on an actual event where Guru Gobind Singh's oldest son volunteered to defend the small fortress they were in. The Mughal army had surrounded it, and there seemed to be no escape. Guru Sahib was sending Singhs in fives to keep up the defense. Inside the fortress, many Singhs prepared themselves for death, and many defended the fort with showers of arrows, along with the Guru. This is one of Bhagat's more detailed paintings. There is a lot to look at, much to learn, and many things to discover. Once you receive the print (and make sure you get the biggest one you can), lookout for: - Mughal cavalry archers|| ||Chamkaur Di Garhi (It's there alright), the fortress with Khalsa forces|| ||two Singhs who charged the forces along with Prince Ajit Singh|| ||Mahouts (elephant riders) see how many you can find ... and there's much more... seriously!
