GOBIND RAM, BHAI
GOBIND RAM, BHAI (d. 1845), son of Bhai Harbhaj and a grandson of Bhai Vasti Ram, had, like his brother Bhai Ram Singh, an honoured position at the court of Maharaja Ranjit Singh. A good scholar of Sanskrit and Persian, Gobind Ram, was of a retiring nature and more interested in spiritualism and medicine. According to Sohan Lal Suri, the court historian, Maharaja Ranjit Singh was highly impressed by Gobind Ram`s knowledge of metaphysics and often had long discussions with him. Bhai Gobind Ram, who suffered a paralytic stroke in 1840, died at Lahore on 23 March 1845.
