RAMASINGH KUKA

Back to the Village

Maharaja Ranjit Singh died in 1839. A bitter quarrel arose between his children and his ministers. Blood flowed like a river because of this. Betrayal and deception were rampant. The British were waiting for such a chance. They took full advantage of it. Lahore fell in to the hands of the British in the first battle between the Sikhs and the British at Mudki in 1845.

Ram Singh had expected this. He returned to his native village during the war. Not that he was patriotic but he felt that such selfish and immoral people could not achieve victory.

Back in the village, Ram Singh worked in his fields. But he never missed his daily prayers or other religious duties. News reached him of the cruel deeds of the British and the gradual expansion of their kingdom. He became restless.

The Christian missionaries who had accompanied the British to India were very active. They used to visit prisons and convert the inmates to Christianity. They had even converted Dilip Singh, the youngest son of Maharaja Ranjit Singh to Christianity. People were carried away by the clothes and the glitter of the life of the British. Many Indians sincerely believed that the British had come to India only to uplift them. Ram Singh stimulated the sense of self-respect of the people, and tried to bring about an awakening.
