GANGA, BHAI, a Sahigal Khatri of Agra, was a soldier in the Mughal army. He once called on Guru Arjan. The Guru, as says Bhai Man! Singh, Sikhan di Bhagat Mala, told him that it ill became him to serve the oppressive Mughal regime. When Ganga pleaded the need to make a living, Guru Arjan said, “Remain with the young Hargobind, and you will receive not only worldly success, but spiritual enlightenment as well.” Bhai Ganga served Guru Hargobind and fought valiantly his battles against the Mughals.
