This is a fantastic rendition of a few verses from Guru Gobind Singh Ji’s great classic Persian composition Zafarnameh. Incandescent, indescribable, over-powering. Enslaver of minds.
After the flight from the Castle of Anandpur Sahib to the Jungle Of Maachiwara and upon being informed by a Sikh messenger that the two young sahibzadahs, Zorawar Singh and Fateh Singh had drank from the cup of martyrdom, Guru Gobind Singh Ji composed the peerless Zafarnameh and instructed two Sikh Warriors to deliver the sacred composition to the court of the Emperor Aurangzeb in the Deccan, fifteen hundred miles southward.
The Emperor over-whelmed by the composition, reputed to have cried in Court, requested Guru Gobind Singh, Dervesh Patshah to attend in his court. Whereupon after completing the great circle that is The Sikhi, The Bearer Of The Falcon started the journey to the Deccan along with a small retinue of Sikh and Afghan warriors.
This is a once in a lifetime rendering, performed in London, England.
