Mata Gujri Ji

Mata Gujri Ji was the daughter of Bhai Lal Chand and Bibi Bishan Kaur, a pious couple of Kartarpur, today Kapurthala. Lal Chand had migrated from his ancestral village Lakhnaur in Ambala district, to settle at Kartarpur where his daughter Gujri was married to Guru Tegh Bahadur in February 1633.

After Tegh Bahadur Ji was installed as Guru in 1664, he went with his mother Nanaki, and his wife Gujri to Patna. Mata Gujri gave birth to a son on December 22nd 1666 in Patna.

Mata Gujri Ji accompanied by the aged Mata Nanaki and young Govind Rai, proceeded to Lakhnaur in Harayana, then to Chakk Nanaki (Anandpur). In face of a prolonged siege by hostile hill Rajas and Mughal troops, Chakk Nanaki had to be evacuated by Guru Govind Singh on the night of 5-6th December 1705. Mata Gujri Ji with her younger grandsons, Zorawar Singh and Fateh Singh, aged 9 and 7 years respectively, was separated from the main body while crossing the river Sarsa. Mata Guiri Ji and her grandsons were arrested on 8th December and confined in the Sirhind Fort in what is referred to in Sikh chronicles as Thanda Burj, the cold tower. As the children were summoned to appear in court from day to day, the grand mother kept urging them to remain steadfast in their faith. On 11th December they were ordered to be bricked alive in a wall but since the masonry crumbled before it covered their heads they were executed the following day. Mata Gujri Ji was imprisoned on top of a tower which was reopened from all sides.

Mata Gujri Ji continued the tradition of Sikhism and without complaints gave up her body singing Guru Ki Bani. Mata Gujri Ji attained martyrdom the same day as her grandsons. No wonder Guru Nanak had said, "Why isn't woman equal to man when she is one who gives birth to kings and protectors of Dharma?". It was due to her teachings that a seven year old and a nine year old did not budge from their Dharma and attained martyrdom, thus containing and emphasizing the Institute of martyrdom and Sikhism Seth Todar Mall, a kind hearted wealthy man of Sirhind cremated the three martyrs the next day.

From the desk of the warden

Dear student,

Every year, being on the other side of the table at my office at the Mata Gujri Hostel, I realize a few interesting things during the admission time. Among the new comers to the Hostel, there are a few students who walk in with reluctance. Owing to the fact that they have, for the first time separated from their families. But, these very students miss their hostel rooms, friends and the college campus the most, when it's time for leaving on the completion of their course. For the others, the love for their hostel becomes even stronger with each passing day.
Such is the warmth and emotional comfort you experience while being at the Mata Gujri Hostel.
Today, you are about to start a new phase of your life where you are going to learn to be responsible, independent. You will create memories that you will cherish forever. M G H, is a well knit family. By involving the inmates in various group activities outside the education curriculum, we ensure building up of confidence, team spirit and discipline in facing the challenges and pressures of the world. The atmosphere of the hostel is conducive for studying and enjoying college life at the same time.
I am sure that you are going to discover yourself in every step of your new journey with the support and guidance from the hostel staff.
