At 15 years he became an ascetic, and was known as 'Madho Das'. He established a monastery at Nāndeḍ, on the bank of the river Godāvarī, where in September 1708 he was visited by, and became a disciple of, Guru Gobind Singh, who gave him the new name of Banda Singh Bahadur. With the blessing and authority of Guru Gobind Singh, he assembled a fighting force and led the struggle against the Mughal Empire. His first major action was the sack of the Mughal provincial capital, Samana, in November 1709. He established his authority in Punjab, and abolished the zamindari system, granting property rights to the tillers of the land. He was captured by the Mughals and tortured to death in 1716.
This artwork visualizes the bravery of Banda Singh in battle, and as someone inspiring the fight against injustice without sacrificing spiritual values.
