ANANTĀ, BHAĪ, son of Bhāī Kuko, a Vadhāvan Khatrī, was a devoted Sikh of the time of Gurū Hargobind (1595-1644). According to Bhāī Santokh Siṅgh, Srī Gur Pratāp Sūraj Granth, he once earned the Gurū's displeasure for wantonly hitting a crow which became lame as a result of the injury. He was, however, repentant and was pardoned through Bhāī Bidhī Chand's intercession. Bhāī Anantā laid down his life fighting for the Gurū in the battle of Amritsar (1629).
