In seven stormy years he & his peasant army wrested extensive territories from the mighty Mughal Empire & established first ever Independent Sikh State. He introduced a new Calender dating from his historic Capture of Sirhind, struck new coins bearing names of Guru Nanak Dev Ji and Guru Gobind Singh Ji and made a Royal Seal bearing Guru’s name, Degh (Cauldron) & Tegh (Sword). He abolished Zamindari System & conferred Proprietary Rights on the cultivators. He gave religious freedom to the Muslims as well.
A dauntless spirit can do much, but, not everything . After seven long years he was over powered by the combined forces of Mughal and Hill Rajas & besieged in Gurdas nangal Village near Gurdaspur in Punjab. He and his Army suffered great hardships and resisted the seize under most gruesome conditions for eight long months. At last he was captured alongwith his famished Sikhs and was martyred in Delhi in a most gruesome manner, unheard in the pages of the History.
