KARMOKARMO, wife of Prithi Chand (1558-1618), the eldest son of Guru Ram Das, was, like her husband, jealous of Guru Arjan, her husband`s younger brother whom Guru Ram Das had nominated as his spiritual sucessor. As Guru Arjan did not have an offspring till he was well past thirty, Karmo rejoiced in the thought that at least after his death her son, Miharban, would inherit the Guru`s seat. But with the birth of Guru Hargobind in 1595 she grew malevolent and conspired with her husband to have the child killed. All her machinations, however, proved abortive and she continued to be tormented by her jealousy till the end.
