Quote

Nihang Darshan Singh;

“He was a man from a rich family and when he came to Sabo Ki Talwandi, seeing the Nihangs he was so fascinated and instantly fell in love with our lifestyle that he went to Baba Santa Singh and requested to be initiated a Nihang Singh himself. Baba Santa Singh declined several times saying that this was not the path for him and that he should carry on living his comfortable lifestyle. Baba Santa Singh pointed to his jewellery and said “this is not how we live”, the man took off his gold rings and threw them into the sarovar (holy pool). Baba Santa Singh gave him one of his old Kacherrae (shorts) and gave him and old sack to wear in place of his clothing. For one year he lived like this and did service for the Khalsa wearing only a sack. After one year Baba Santa Singh gave him and old bana, it was one of his own. He went on to become a great Singh, did a tremendous amount of service and meditation. He maintained a great amount of humility; he passed away just a few years ago. He never had a kasherra or bana made, he would only accept Baba Santa Singhs own clothes. He attained great spiritual heights before passing away.” (Audio recording, August 2006)

In the end, to what Cloud Jee says, we may give any name, but the resullt is that, what matters most, are the fine and noble qualities of a real sikh, which are: humilty, faith, detachment, sewa and bhakti (deep love for Wahiguru).

Sat Sree Akal.

Vaheguroo...

I think the OP may be referring to the lifestyle and ways of Nihung life including dress code, affiliation with the fauj etc as well as being a Sikh and having the values you have mentioned.

Apologies if I am wrong.

One who is above Sikh and sukh, someone who is a karam yogi ie always doing seva.  Cold, heat and hunger doesn't affect him 

always engaged in shastar vidiya such a Nihang fights for justice 

his hands are cut with so much seva, his clothes are soiled with langar Di seva, his bodily skin is dark and rough, his bones are solid, he is never lazy

    • There's 12 year-old boys driving cars in some parts of Punjab. It's been going on for ages. It's not widespread but it happens. I'm impressed yet horrified at the same time. 
    • Driving lesson in Punjab LOL. The guy driving is a Punjabi driving instructor from Wolverhampton, he does mock test videos on youtube.      This driving lesson and test took place in Phagwara.     
    • nice little bit of history, The Times 1841 mentions Maharani Chand Kaur becoming the queen.    Chand Kaur was the wife of Maharaja Kharak Singh. A few hours after Kharak Singh died their son Nau Nihal Singh, next in line to become Maharaja also died. The whole thing most likely was a planned murder, Kharak Singh was poisoned while Nau Nihal Singh was murdered. It most likely was planned by the dogras, other families that opposed Ranjit Singh and probabaly some of Maharaja Sher Singhs men as well.  Soon after Nau Nihal Singh died Sher Singh proclaimed himself Maharaja, Chand Kaur the widow of Kharak Singh and mother Nau Nihal Singh challenged Sher Singh with the claim that her dead son Nau Nihal Singhs wife Sahib Kaur is expecting a baby and till the baby is not born she will sit on the throne, therefore Maharani Chand Kaur sat on the throne in Lahore. Brave woman for standing up to the giants of the Sikh empire! She also managed to get a big % of the Sikh army on her side.  Tragically when Sahib Kaur did give birth it was a still born baby. Maharaja Sher Singh then did not wait any longer when he heard of the still birth and marched with his troops towards Lahore fort. Chand Kaur refused to give up her title and the city broke into civil war. Massive parts of the city were blown up and the number of casualties was very high. Eventually Chand Kaur and her forces had no choice but to surrender and leave Lahore fort. Sher Singh then became Maharaja. Chand Kaur then retired and started living in her sons haveli in Lahore but was still seen as a threat and was beaten to death in the haveli.  The Times 1841 mentioning Chand Kaur becoming queen.
