As Rai Singh grew up, he joined the jathd or band of Shiam Singh of NariT, a commander of the Karor Singhias, who gave him his daughter in marriage. At the conquest of Sirhind by the Sikhs in January 1764, Rai Singh occupied a number of villages in Samrala /aA^/of Ludhiana district. Rai Singh built a mud fort at Mirarikot where he lived until his death in 1809. His son, Ratan Singh Bharigu, is the author of the famed Prachm Panth Prakdsh, which delineates in verse the history of the Sikhs during that stirring period.
