Sobha Singh- Guru Nanak Dev ji - self portrait?

Recommended Posts

Came across this a few years back. Some believe that the really famous painting of Guru Nanak Dev ji, painted by Sobha Singh was actually a based on Sobha Singhs own face! or was at least the inspiration behind it.

If you look at it then there definitely are some similarities between Sobha Singhs self portrait and the portrait of Guru Nanak Dev ji. Especially the nose, moustache and lips area, the shape of the beard and how he painted Guru jis beard white but did his eyebrows black, just like his own!    Made me think twice about the Sobha Singh Guru Nanak portrait hanging in my living room!  I know it's just an artists imagination but it could really just be Sobha Singh staring back at us! 

I've personally never liked Sobha Singhs work, though his painting of SonhiMahiwal is quite beautiful.

Don’t look much alike to me

ive been told Sant Mohinder Singh Ji (Rara Sahib/Jarg) said Sobha Singh’s picture of 1st Guru was very good as it most resembles 1st Guru true likeness

I think it was bhai vir Singh hi or some other famous gursikh that sobha called to have a look at the painting and the gursikh was displeased and said “my guru Nanak dev ji doesn’t look like that”. 
 

We shouldn’t even have paintings of guru sahib anyway smh

    • Yeah i think too that bhai jugraj was made shaheed just too suspicious the way he was taken out when he started talking about political reality and truth about this world. They left him alone when he was just talking about spiritual stuff but when he applied the miri puri concept of Sikhi that all Sikhs should I think they did something to his body. Either poisoned his food with carcinogenics or radioactive stuff or x-ray beams (which are known covert weapons used by world powers to take out their targets covertly and plausible deniability). He used to mostly started basics of sikhi to combat the dawah islamic and christian missionaries targeting sikhs for conversion. So they didn't like it when he used to do that fearless confrontation parchar that basics of sikhi on the streets and in street stalls. Now since he has passed there is a lack and void of that. Then he started to talk about making all of india as khalistan and having khalsa raj that upset the hindu extremists and indian nationalists. He also exposed British empires role in destroying Sikh sovereignty and taking part in genocides against us from 1840s to 1990s. So he made alot of powerful enemies with his truthful and fearless parchar that was converting hundreds of non-sikhs to Sikhi by the week and educating ignorant Sikhs back into true Sikhi. He would often visit this forum i heard and get good idea's that he got from members from here and would talk about in his speeches e.g he talked about establishing a UK takht to have political power of Sikhs aboard away from india's captured and control sri akal takht. So the enemies of Sikhi were trembling at the power 1 man with a youtube channel had. I believe one of the enemies must have done something to take him out to silence him forever and attempt to block the revival of global Sikh spirituality and political awakening.  
    • Quite an interesting book alot of truths in that. Also exposed the Indian establishments hand in terrorist acts aboard especially in canada and then blaming Sikhs for it. Using Sikh patsy indian military intelligence agents like talwinder parmer to do their bidding then extrajudicial killing him (or disappearing him) when he got back to punjab. Also this is guy below exposed other agents who were founders of the BKI militant group. One of the guys was a canadian intelligence agent and probably and indian r&aw agent given cover by the indian embassy CSIS subtly talking about indian govt interference, subversion and terrorism on canadian soil            
    • This had me in stitches when 1st watched it 
    • Regardless of how he came to leave this Khel in Kalyug he did indeed.
