KESAR SIṄGH, BHĀĪ (1893-1921), one of the martyrs of Nankāṇā Sāhib, was born on 3 Bhādon 1950 Bk/17 August 1893, the son of Bhāī Pāl Siṅgh and Māī Lachchhī of Chakk No 38 Nizāmpur Devā Siṅghvālā, in Sheikhūpurā district. He made his living by cattle-grazing. Blessed with a sweet singing voice, he used to recite Sikh hymns in the village gurdwārā and snatches from Giānī Kartār Siṅgh Kalāsvālīā's versified accounts of Sikh martyrs at lay gatherings. When the call came from Nankāṇā, Bhāī Kesar Siṅgh, ignoring the protestations of his family, joined Bhāī Lachhmaṇ Siṅgh Dhārovāli's jathā which was massacred to a man on 20 February 1921.
