CHANDĀ SIṄGH, BHĀĪ (1885-1921) was born on 9 Sāvan 1942 Bk / 22 July 1885, the son of Bhāī Hukam Siṅgh and Māī Nand Kaur, a peasant couple of village Nizāmpur, in Amritsar district. The family shifted westward to Chakk No. 38 Nizāmpur Devā Siṅghvālā, in a newly colonized district. As he grew up, Chandā Siṅgh, was influenced by the current of Sikh reformation then sweeping the Punjab. When a call came for a Shahīdī jathā, martyrs' column, to proceed to Delhi to rebuild the demolished wall of Gurdwārā Rikābgañj, Chandā Siṅgh registered himself as a volunteer. He also attended the Dhārovāli conference on 1-3 October 1920. As Bhāī Lachhmaṇ Siṅgh's jathā bound for Nankāṇā Sāhib was passing by his village on 19 February 1921, Bhāī Chandā Siṅgh along with his brother, Gaṅgā Siṅgh, joined it, and fell a martyr the following morning in Gurdwārā Janam Asthān.
