Gulab Chand, son of Bhat Sadhu of village Malla, in Faridkot district of the Punjab, and Bibi Viro, daughter of Guru Hargobind (1595 – 1644), fought along with his four brothers in the Battle of Bhangani (18 September 1688), near Paonta in presentday Himachal Pradesh, in which two of his brothers, Sarigram Shah and Jit Mall, were killed. Guru Gobind Singh describes Gulab Chand, in his account of the battle in his poetical work, Bachitar Natak, as a mighty hero "whose face lightened up at the prospect of joining action on the field of battle."
