ਪਾਕਿਸਤਾਨ ਵਿਚਲੇ ਗੁਰਧਾਮਾਂ ਦੀ ਸਾਂਭ ਸੰਭਾਲ ਲਈ ਅਣਥੱਕ ਮਿਹਨਤ ਕਰਨ ਵਾਲੀ ਸ਼ਖਸੀਅਤ ਸਰਦਾਰ ਸ਼ਾਮ ਸਿੰਘ ਜੀ।

ਸਵਰਗਵਾਸੀ ਸਰਦਾਰ ਸ਼ਾਮ ਸਿੰਘ 1947 ਦੀ ਵੰਡ ਵੇਲੇ ਹਿੰਦੋਸਤਾਨ ਆਉਣ ਦੀ ਕੋਸ਼ਿਸ਼ ਵਿੱਚ ਯਤੀਮ ਹੋ ਗਏ ਸਨ। ਪਰ ਹਿੰਮਤ ਨਾ ਹਾਰਦੇ ਹੋਏ ਬਾਦ ਵਿੱਚ ਪਾਕਿਸਤਾਨ ਸਿੱਖ ਗੁਰਦੁਆਰਾ ਪ੍ਰਬੰਧਕ ਕਮੇਟੀ ਦੇ ਪ੍ਰਧਾਨ ਬਣੇ। ਜਿਥੇ ਉਹ ਮਾਣਮੱਤੇ ਸਿੱਖ ਸਨ ਉੱਥੇ ਨਾਲ ਹੀ ਪਾਕਿਸਤਾਨ ਨੂੰ ਅਥਾਹ ਪਿਆਰ ਕਰਦੇ ਸਨ ਅਤੇ ਮੁਸਲਿਮ -ਸਿੱਖ ਭਾਈਚਾਰੇ ਦੀ ਸ਼ਾਹਦੀ ਭਰਦੇ ਸਨ। ਪੇਸ਼ ਹਨ ਉਹਨਾਂ ਦਿਆਂ ਕੁਝ ਯਾਦਾਂ।

1947-ਉਜੜ ਕੇ ਵੱਸਣ ਦੀ ਗਾਥਾ- ਸਰਦਾਰ ਇੰਦਰਜੀਤ ਸਿੰਘ ਵੜੈਚ ਜੀ ਜੁਬਾਨੀ

1947 ਦੀ ਵੰਡ ਦੌਰਾਨ ਅੰਦਾਜ਼ਨ ਡੇਢ ਕਰੋੜ ਲੋਕ ਘਰੋਂ ਬੇਘਰ ਹੋਏ ਜਦੋਂਕਿ ਤਕਰੀਬਨ 10 ਲੱਖ ਲੋਕ ਮਾਰੇ ਗਏ।

1947, ਕਿਸੇ ਲਈ ਆਜਾਦੀ, ਕਿਸੇ ਲਈ ਵੰਡ ਤੇ ਕਿਸੇ ਲਈ ਉਜਾੜਾ। 69 ਵਰ੍ਹੇ ਪਹਿਲਾਂ ਵਾਪਰੀ ਮਨੁੱਖੀ ਇਤਿਹਾਸ ਵਿੱਚ ਖਲਕਤ ਦੇ ਤਬਾਦਲੇ ਦੀ ਇਸ ਦਿਲ ਕੰਬਾਊ ਤਰਾਸਦੀ ਨੂੰ ਅਜੇ ਤੱਕ ਬਰੀਟਿਸ਼ ਰਾਜ ਤੋਂ ਆਜਾਦੀ ਦੀ ਸੁਖਦ ਪਾਨ ਚਾੜ੍ਹ ਕੇ ਹੀ ਪ੍ਰਚਾਰਿਆ ਗਿਆ। ਪਰ ਇਹਨਾਂ ਕੁਝ ਮਹੀਨਿਆਂ ਨੇ ਦਰਿਆ ਸਿੰਧ ਤੋਂ ਜਮੁਨਾ ਵਿਚਾਲੇ ਰਹਿੰਦੇ ਲੋਕਾਂ ਦੀ ਤਰਜੇ ਜਿੰਦਗੀ ਨੂੰ ਸਦਾ ਵਾਸਤੇ ਬਦਲ ਦਿੱਤਾ। ਆਜਾਦੀ ਦੇ ਤਿਰੰਗੇ ਤੇ ਹੈਦਰੀ ਝੰਡੇ ਬੇਪੱਤੀਆਂ ਨੂੰ ਕੱਝ ਨਾਂ ਸਕੇ। ਉਂਝ ਅਣਖਾਂ ਦੇ ਬੱਝੇ ਲੋਕਾਂ ਨੇ ਕੁੱਝ ਦਸਿਆ ਵੀ ਨਾਂ। ਸਰਦਾਰ ਇੰਦਰਜੀਤ ਸਿੰਘ ਵੜੈਚ, ਜਿਨਾਂ ਦੇ ਪੁਰਖਿਆਂ ਦੀ 500 ਕਿੱਲੇ ਜਮੀਨ ਦਾ ਪੰਜਵਾਂ ਹਿੱਸਾ ਵੀ ਨਾਂ ਮਿਲਿਆ। ਪਰਵਾਰ ਤੇ ਸੱਕਿਆਂ ਦਾ ਜਾਨੀ ਨੁਕਸਾਨ ਹੋਣ ਦੇ ਬਾਵਜੂਦ ਵੀ ਉਹਨਾਂ ਨੂੰ ਅੱਜ ਵੀ ਆਪਣੇ ਪੁਰਾਣੇ ਪਿੰਡ ਦੀ ਯਾਦ ਸਤਾਉਂਦੀ ਏ।
