in around 1950. We are publishing the names as we collected from
different sources. Most of these are absolutely correct but few are
still guess work. If anyone want to correct us, please send us a
message any time. We are extremely thankful to all the friends and

Shamsher Singh Ji was a great
devotee of Guru Hargobind Sahib. He came to Gurusar Sudhar upon request
of area sangat from Raikot. Here he took the responsiblity of
maintenance and development of Gurdawara Patshahi 6th, the place which
has the benign blessings of Guru
Hargobind Sahib, who spent significant moments of his life here.
As he had a visionary idea, he established a
‘Gurmukhi Pathshala’ in 1921, which he used to call a College. It is
still running as GHG Khasla Senior Secondary School at Gurusar Sudhar.
Ji’s dream got God’s blessings and in 1948, Guru Hargobind Khalsa
College, Gurusar Sadhar came into existence in a wing of school in the
complex where presently G.H.G. Khalsa College of Education is
functioning. Later college was moved to its present campus on the
Ludhiana - Bathinda main road.
So, our area owe a lot to this great visionary whose thinking was way ahead of his times.
