ZORAWAR SINGH (1696-1705), the third son of Guru Gobind Singh, was born to Mata Jitoji at Anandpur on 17 November 1696, and was barely nine years old at the time of the evacuation of Anandpur on the night of 5-6 December 1705. Since the death, on 5 December 1700, of Mata Jitoji, Mata Gujari, his grandmother had been especially attached to young Zorawar Singh and his infant brother, Fateh Singh. She took charge of both as the column moved out of Anandpur. While crossing on horseback the rivulet Sarsa, then in spate, the three were separated from Guru Gobind Singh.
