Maharaja Ranjit Singh and Moran Sarkar's Love Story

Moran,(wife of maharaja Ranjit singh) a young dancer (nautch girl), hailing from Lahore, it took nearly two centuries to remove the stigma attached to
legendary Maharaja Ranjit Singh, who was declared "Tankhaiyya" (guilty of religious misconduct), by then Jathedar, Akal Takht, Akali Phula Singh for having relations with the Muslim dancer.

The Maharaja married her in 1802 and they went to Hardwar for a dip in the holy Ganga.Maharaja Ranjit Singh made an effort to uplift Moran's community. Moran's 'biradari' lived in a village called Makhanwindi near Amritsar.
The Maharaja gave the biradari a place near Amritsar city and named it Sharifpura to rehabilitate honour of the community and encourage them to explore other vocations in case they wished to do so.
She led a life of simplicity and piety after her marriage with the Maharaja. She soon became the Maharaja's link with the common man. Moran earned the love and respect of people of Lahore, who
lovingly called her Moran Sarkar. This disturbed many influential people in the Darbar. Moreover society at large was not evolved enough for such a radical change.After 10 years of living in Lahore and contributing to social,
educational and religious fabric of the Durbar, she finally moved away from Lahore.It is important to give Moran her deserved place in history as Pul Kanjari is now going to be part of National heritage circuit.
Singh's marriage with Moran not just an act of honour but a conscious effort to rehabilitate a particular down- trodden section of society
