SIṄGHĀ, BHĀĪ. During his travels Gurū Tegh Bahādur once stopped in Khīvā, according to the Sākhī Pothī, with a farmer named Siṅghā. Siṅghā offered water, grass and fodder for the Gurū's animals. As he got up to depart, the Gurū spoke, "Why are you leaving ? What is the hurry?" He answered that there was a shagan come for his son's engagement. The Gurū said, "You are now apprenticed to the Gurū's service. You have now to fulfil a dual responsibility. From now on you will be entitled to a double share."
