INDAR SIṄGH, BHĀĪ (1881-1921), one of the Nankāṇā Sāhib martyrs, was born on 27 January 1881, the son of Bhāī Sarmukh Siṅgh and Māī Sukhdeī of Panḍorī Nijjharāṅ in Jalandhar district. He learnt reading and writing Punjabi in the village gurdwārā, and grew up into a strongly-built young man, tall and sturdy. He seemed ideally suited for a career in the army which he did join (36th Sikh Battalion), but took out his discharge in two years' time. He participated in the historic Sikh gathering at Dhāvovālī on 1-3 October 1920. He had his name registered as a volunteer in the batch led by Bhāī Sundar Siṅgh, Jathedār of his own village, for the liberation of the Nankāṇā Sāhib shrine. He fell a martyr in the compound of Gurdwārā Janam Asthān in the raining bullets on 20 February 1921.
