SHIV DIAL, whose ancestors had made their home in Wazirabad, entered the service of Charhat Singh Sukkarchakkia and was assigned to managing his estates. His father, Kishan Kumar, a follower of Gurbakhsh Singh Wazirabadia, was the first in the family to have taken up service with the Sikhs. When Ranjit Singh conquered the Dhanni country, he appointed Shiv Dial manager and gave him an estate at Nurpur, subject to service. When advanced in years, Shiv Dial introduced his sons Shankar Das and Kanhaiya Lal at the Lahore court, himself retiring to Wazirabad.
