The Bhagat was born on 20 October 1868, 118 years ago, in Central Sind at a place known as Bhiria on the left bank of the Indus. He passed away 57 years ago at the same place on 25 January 1929 at the not very old age of 61. As usual, his disci-ples remember him very particularly on this day.
The aggressive spirituality of the one and the self-effacing humility of the other, his faith in the efficacy of divine power in the affairs of men, his indifference to mundane affairs, alongwith his abiding concern for the welfare of all men, women, children, animals, birds—without show off of any kind: all this served a social purpose, a subtle elevation in the level of life. This series—Saints of Sind—has been designed to bring out the social purposiveness of their lives and works. Spirituality there was or was not, in certain cases—but the contribution of the saints of Sind to social development was a very significant one.
