Written by the 10th Sikh Master, Guru Gobind Singh ji, after he lost his mother, his 2 elder sons (ages 11 & 14) in a battle where 40 of his soldiers were surrounded by an army of a million, his 2 younger sons (ages 7 & 8) who were entombed alive, besides himself being exiled from the Punjab around the year 1704-05 A.D. Such was his confidence and spirit despite all trageic and oppressive circumstances.
