Hari Singh Nalwa took Amrit at the age of 10 and was presented with 5 shashtars, including a talwar and teer. After taking Amrit he became Hari Singh. At the age of 14 he killed a tiger with his sword, though the tiger managed to kill his horse. Hari Singh then got the name Nalwa. King Nal was a king from the Mahabharat era who killed a tiger with his hands, so Maharaja Ranjit Singh gave him the name Nal-wa, the "wa" being as in wa/wow. Hari Singh Nalwa was recruited as a bodyguard in the Lahore Darbar and soon after was given the title Sardar along with other Singhs for their contributions and achievements. He was also made commander of a small army. Around the same time he made his first victory with the conquest of Kasur. 

All of this within just a few years.

Hari Singh Nalwa apparently ripped the tigers mouth open with his hands, he was also known to be the general patton of india, I think he spoke seven languages and offered to the the translator for Maharaja Ranjit Singh, he was also vital in the Sikh conquests of Afghanistan, in which he would make the men dress like women to spare their lives, he was a great strategician and had great battle prowess, Akali Phula Singh was another Sikh that was great during the empire, he even advised Maharaja Ranjit Singh that his childern are basically useless and that he should instead make the successor, one of his generals saying that the Sikh empire is for the people, however of course Maharaja Ranjit Singh didn't do that, leading to the incompetent successors after him (Yet we were still able to do well in the Anglo-sikh wars until of course the Dogras betrayed us) Also I think Hari Singh Nalwa was the first person to actually conquer the Pathans until his eventual death in battle.

" Though the Sikhs were totally outnumbered, presence of Hari Singh Nalwa put the Afghan army into panic. In the melee, Hari Singh Nalwa was grievously wounded. Before he died, he told his lieutenant not to let the news of his death out till the arrival of reinforcements, which is what he did. While the Afghans knew that Hari Singh had been wounded, they waited for over a week doing nothing, till the news of his death was confirmed. The Afghans withdrew after witnessing Nalwa’s body hung outside the fort. Hari Singh Nalwa had not only defended Jamrud and Peshawar, but had prevented the Afghans from ravaging the entire north-west frontier, in turn was not able to invade Afghanistan himself. The loss of Hari Singh Nalwa was irreparable and this Sikh defeat was costly for that precise reason."

had to inspect the html element to see what you posted because it wasn't visible . Anyways the point is not about us , but our future generation. They won't be able to forever smile because of something happened in distant past . Past glory is almost useless if it doesn't fit with current strength . 

EDIT -- 
Parsis (Zoroastrians) ruled over persia (Iran) for more than 1000 yrs , spanning 3 successive kingdoms , but today they're on the verge of extinction. Can Parsis today feel happy looking at all the forts their zoroastrian ancestors made in present day islamic Iran ??

Get super rich and start rebuilding our homeland in Punjab, into a new Dubai however don't forget about the corrupt government that will try to exploit our improvements on our motherland, until now condition yourself and those around you to be warriors, learn how to fight in many ways as you can, and learn how to survive in the wilderness, the future generation must be strong and must be able to adapt to any situation, and must be able to survive, the Sikhs in the past have learned combat, and learned how to live off the land, and learned about battle as well, that is a vital aspect we are missing.

are u suggesting , after a future nuclear apocalyptic event we would be back to conditions like 18th century ?

I think its important to read about the past, it helps people connect to Sikhi, bani instructs us to narrate the stories of our ancestors. If anything then we can take inspiration from the Sikhs of the past.

They accomplished so much in such a short period of time. Hari Singh Nalwa went from bodyguard to commander to conquering Kasur, his first victory, in just 5 or 6 years. He was 16 when he won Kasur. M.Ranjit Singh became the head of his Misl at the age of 14. While todays 14 year olds are rolling out bed at 2pm! 

We lack discipline, myself included. No sense of responsibility !

Grown men and women in their 20s,30s and 40s behave like kids and are treated /pampered like kids!

When a 6th tall grown man in his 30s, hairy as a ape, gets called a "niana" or a "bacha" and his "mistakes" and childish behavior gets dismissed with a "chal phir ki hoya, niana aa"  then there is something seriously wrong going on in the community! 

I've heard grown women in their 30s who by that age could be mothers of 5 kids, get called "nianee" 

I doubt it 16 year old Hari Singh Nalwa commanding a army of 800 soldiers was called a kid back then! 

I blame the parents for this. 

I now see grown men/women in their 40s displaying childish behavior. There are grown Punjabi men ending up in A&E because they end up doing stupid things when drunk and out of their mind. 

Sikhs had discipline in the past, structure. When asked why his army was so successful, M.Ranjit Singh said its because taking amrit installs a warrior spirit in them and that they are introduced to weapons and fighting from the age of 5!  Some of todays Sikh parents would call it child abuse.   

 

 

Can you point me in the direction where bani tells us to narrate stories of our ancestors?

The stories of one's ancestors make the children good children.

Doesn't say to narrate anything
