Top 5 Qualities from lives of the valorous four- the 4 Sahibzaadas
- 25 December 2022
Christmas is around the corner, and new year is approaching. So, today I am going to shed light on a less talked topic. You must be wondering who are Sahibzaade and what did they do? Amongst many other martyrs from the community, the sacrifices made by Guru Gobind Singh’s four sons were exemplary. The four brave sons were called ‘Sahibzaadas’.
So, let me take you through a small ride of December of 1704! The month of December holds a special place in people’s hearts, especially belonging to the Sikh faith and Punjabi community. Baba Ajit Singh and Baba Jujhar Singh, the two elder ones- aged 18- and 14-year-old, breathed their last on the battlefield at Chamkaur Sahib while resisting the oppressive tyrants. The younger ones- Baba Zorawar Singh and Baba Fateh Singh were bricked to death for upholding their values and beliefs, that too at the age of 9 and 7 respectively!
There is always something that we can learn from such super heroes. Let us inherit the top 5 qualities from these courageous souls:
December is the month of remembrance, recollection, and reverence. Let us practise greater awareness throughout this month of gratitude by altering our lives and lives of others by sharing and caring. To instill these values, students at Oakridge Mohali, watched the movie- “Chaar Sahibzaade”, practiced 1 minute silence and also reflected on the learnings. Such class engagements help the students to stay connected to their roots, while practicing acceptance and embracing each others’ beliefs and faiths.
