Sd Tarinder Singh a writer and researcher on Bhai Nand Lal (1633-1713 born in Ghazni, Afghanistan) who was a poet famous in the Sikh tradition and favourite disciple of Guru Gobind Singh, gives us detailed information on Bhai Sahib’s life and work in this programme.

His poetry, all in Persian except for Joti Bikas, which is in Punjabi, forms part of the approved Sikh canon and can be recited along with scriptural verse at Sikh religious divans. Nand Lal adopted the pen-name of “Goya,” though at places he has also subscribed himself as “Lal,” the word being the last part of his name. He was a scholar, learned in the traditional disciplines of the time.
