Mr and Mrs Nihang Singh !

Recommended Posts

Dear Singh47,

The picture is captioned (by the photographer) as a Nihang and his wife - he also says that the reason they aren't riding the bicycle is because they have just crossed over a steep bridge over the SYL canal - oh and they are on their way from Sirhind to Patiala.

Glad you liked the picture !

My mistake. Thanks.

Notice his Chand or Chakar on his Dumala? it looks like the kind that Sikh soldiers use to wear on their Dastars in the British army. Perhaps this singh is also an ex soldier.

I met one old baba in chumkar sahib, said that he was in the army and had all the licences from british army from the days he was in his regiment,then got his licence from bhudda dal, then he showed me his bus licence too :)

he was retired and just floats from gurdwara to gurdwara doing seva. What a life :) no stress

got him on video somewhere
