Dashmesh Pita & Nihang


Recommended Posts

Dashmesh ji's journey to Deccan (circa 1770-80 Marwar Rajastan)

This painting is fascinating - not only because it's in a unusual style - but it includes a Nihang resplendent in DastarBoonga , I believe it is rare to see an older painting with a nihang and Guru Sahib?. Note he is carrying a non blue Nishan Sahib with interesting emblems.

Enjoy !

lol.... is that the most chardi kala thing u could notice...

The reason I noticed that is because Nihangs always use a blue Nishan Sahib as opposed to a Kesri Nishan Sahib. In India whenever I have had discussions with Nihangs, they always seem to be against the kesri Nishan Sahib. But on the picture, it shows a puraatan Akali Nihang Singh carrying a Kesri Nishan Sahib and NOT a blue one which modern Nihangs seem to carry.
