A biography of the most venerable King of Punjab, Maharaja Ranjit Singh who ruled not by conquering territories, but by winning the hearts of the people

On 13 November 1780, a visionary was born who would unite Punjab (which at that time was a group of independent kingdoms ruled by several kings) under one flag. This visionary was Maharaja Ranjit Singh, who was the first King of united Punjab.   Prior to his rise, the Punjab region had numerous warring misls (confederacies), mostly ruled by the Sikhs.  Ranjit Singh successfully absorbed and united the Sikh misls and took over other local kingdoms to create the Sikh Empire. He repeatedly defeated invasions by Muslims armies, particularly those arriving from Afghanistan, and established friendly relations with the British.

He was a lion heart (that’s why the title Sher-e-Punjab) because he not only conquered territories, but also won the hearts of the people of Punjab. Ranjit Singh led not by fear and brute power, but by compassion and humanity. Ranjit Singh's reign introduced reforms, modernisation, investment into infrastructure, and general prosperity. His Khalsa army and government included Sikhs, Hindus, Muslims and Europeans. His legacy includes a period of Sikh cultural and artistic renaissance.  The show portrays the journey of this great luminary, who dedicated his life to serve and protect his motherland.
