BHAGVĀN SIṄGH, BHĀĪ (1881-1921), one of the Nankāṇā Sāhib martyrs, was son of Bhāī Lahiṇā Siṅgh and Māī Tābo of village Nizāmpur, in Amritsar district. He lost his mother at the age of three. On the opening of the Lower Chenāb Canal Colony during the last decade of the 19th century, the family-father and son- migrated to Chakk No. 38 Devā Siṅghvālā in Sheikhūpurā district where young Bhagvān Siṅgh assisted his father carrying errands. When he grew up, he went abroad to China in search of fortune, but came back after three years, and received the rites of Khālsā initiation at Srī Akāl Takht Sāhib. He attended the Akālī conference at Dhārovālī on 1-3 October 1920 and joined Bhāī Lachhman Siṅgh's jathā of Akālī reformists: He shared the jathā's fate at Nankāṇā Sāhib on 20 February 1921.
