Title Malvandar
Description This poetic epic describes the whole biographical and religio-spiritual profile of Baba Ram Singh Namdhari, the founder of Namdhari or "Kuka" Movement. It includes his relentless efforts in bringing about several social reforms, his anti-British revolutionary activities and his British-imposed exile from India. In Principal Teja Singh's words, it is written in the genre of Guru Nanak's "Babarvani", a verse in S.G.G.S. It uses all the prevalent poetic devices such as 'Kabit', korda chhand, Baint and Sirkhaudi Chhand. It is written in standard chaste Punjabi. Since it uses references and evidence from the earlier chronicles of Sikh history, it can be termed as the authentic account of Namdhari Movement and its founder. It is a great epic about a saint and freedom fighter which inspires the reader with feelings of patriotism and sacrifice.
