My interpretation of 'Mai Bhago Ji' a female Sikh soldier and bodyguard for Guru Gobind Singh for my 'Sikh art' exhibition in November - Graphite drawing by Pen-Tacular-Artist.deviantart.com on @deviantART | Sikhpoint.com
The First Woman Commander-in-Chief : Rani Sada Kaur became a young widow when her husband was killed in a battle among Punjabi chiefdoms. She used the moment to transform herself into a woman-warrior, donning a high turban and weaponry. She commanded battles and laid the foundation for the Sikh empire, which spanned the Punjab from 1799 to 1849. She closely advised her son-in-law as he became the first Maharaja of the new empire, Maharaja Ranjit Singh.
