CHANNAN DYAL JI HISTORY
Baba Channan Dyal Ji was a great saint who was born in 1167 on the day of Basant Panchami in somewhere southern part of India.They were great devotee of Lord Shri Ram Chandar ji. At an early age (about 18-20 years) they started going on pilgrimages.They visited Gaya Ji,Dwarka Ji,Badrinath Ji,Kedarnath Ji,Shri Somnath Temple,Haridwar and all other Dhams(mostly in southern parts of the country) and once during one of their pilgrimage, they visited Rai(village in punjab)presently in districtAmritsar. They were so impressed by the peace of that place that they settled there,built an Ashram and started worshipping lord Rama. After spending 5 to 6 years in Rai they wanted to go for pilgrimage again so they gave the responsibility of the Ashram to one of their follower. After some 7 years when they didn't came back the follower thought that saint might be dead so he destroyed the Ashram and use that land for farming. Then after some monthes when Baba Channan Dyal Ji was back and saw that their Ashram was not there,they went to the follower and asked him about the ashram and flowers(they love plants so much and treated them as their own children) to which the follower replied which flowers?which ashram?2-3 flowers were there, they will grow again. Baba Channan Dyal Ji was so hurt to hear that the follower destoyed all their plants and flowers,and in pain they said " just like my 2-4 flowers son, you"ll also remain 2-4".After that incident Baba Channan Dyal ji moved from there.but that village Rai never growed. Till now the village has very minor population.
ORIGIN OF VILLAGE KAKKAR
After leaving village Rai, Satguru ji moved towards a forest near bank of Ravi(river ravi).They settled their ashram near ravi in the forest. An old couple was also living near to that forest .The name of that old man was "ghumman" and he was childless. when the old couple see that there is a saint living near to there house,they went to him and requested if they could present him milk twice a day.Satguru ji accepted their request and old couple started going to the Ashram twice .After few years,one day when the couple was sitting in Ashram,wife of ghumman saw a "gilt" (Female pig) playing with her 7 children.The scene stuck to her heart as she was childless.Then Satuguru ji came and asked wife of old man that "daughter is their something in your mind?"To which she replied "you know everything,Satguru Ji".After that satguru ji smiled and said to old man that don't worry as that pig has 7 children you will also have 7 sons.And after a year he was blessed with his first son and he had 7 sons in total. from his 7 sons the village kakkar was formed and from that 7 sons,jattsikh caste "gill" was subdivided into 7 castes like kamle,Bole,Lalle and Raath. Present village kakkar has all those 7 castes and also Brahmins and sachdevas are living here.
