Maharaja Ranjit Singh was born, on November 13th, 1780. He was proclaimed as Maharaja of Punjab on April 12th, 1801. He, like his father Sardar Mahan Singhji and mother Raj Kaur, was a very devoted Sikh. He always followed the Sikh code of conduct. He was a great warrior, democrat, philanthropist and patriot. He integrated the MISLS (small states) into a secular powerful Punjab and thus negated the saying of Afghans, “Grass never grows where Afghan horses have trodden.” Although crowned king, he refused to wear the emblem of royalty and wore a simple turban. He also refused to sit on the throne. The coins did not bear his name or image. The Will of the people was given great regard. Hindus, Sikhs and Muslims were equal before law and had equal rights.
Maharaja, as a real democrat helped educational and religious institutions of all communities. He never neglected the code of ethics even in the time of trouble of war. Maharaja Ranjit Singhji, the Lion of Punjab and a great patriot expired on June 27th, 1839 of a paralytic attack.
