Early Gursikhs : Bhai Ananta
Bhai Ananta, son of Bhai Kuko,a Vadhavan Khatri, was a devoted Sikh of the time of Guru Hargobind (1595 – 1644). According to Bhai Santokh Singh, Sri Gur Pratap suraj Granth, he once earned the Guru’s displeasure for wantonly hitting a crow which became lame as a result of the injury. He was, however, repentant and was pardoned through Bhai Bidhi Chand’s intercession. Bhai Ananta laid down his life fighting for the Guru in the battle of Amritsar (1629).
