Gah, a village in Chakwal District of Pakistan’s Punjab province, was home to him. It is located at 33deg3’45N 72deg39’8E. The Naib Nazim, or vice president of Begal, is from Gah. Gah is known for being the birthplace of Manmohan Singh, an ex-Indian Prime Minister. Hindus and Sikhs were forced to flee the region after the violence that followed the Partition of India in 1947. After Singh was elected prime minister, the Punjab provincial Government declared that it would make Gah a model village and renamed the local boys school “Manmohan Singh Government Primary School” as a gesture to goodwill. The name Gah Bigal, located in the western Punjab Salt Range Country, was unknown to the outside world until recently. It was then that Dr Manmohan S, a soft-spoken man of the Salt Range country of western Punjab, would be the 13th prime minster of India. The word Gah (local pronunciation Gai in the Union Council of Bigal) became the official name. It was believed that he was born here in the Punjabi highlands. Its exact location was not clear. A column by Ayaz Amir (a renowned political analyst) stated that Manmohan Sing was a son Chakwal. Gai was located near Kala Gujran, just outside Jhelum. Another said that Gai was south of Jhelum by Sanghoi. Another spoke of it being close to Chakwal. Dr Singh’s interview in which he claimed he was a Jhelum native created the confusion about Gai being near Jhelum. This was true up to the 1980s. However, with Chakwal being elevated to district level, he was now a Chakwal native as Ayaz had written. Watercolour by Nazir Ahmed (TI) Gai said it was northwest of Chakwal. It was actually within walking distance from his village Bhagwal. His man would be waiting to pick me up from Gai if I left the Balkassar interchange motorway. He warned that a pinch of salt was needed for a visit, as every man over 60 and living within 50 miles from Gai claimed to be Dr Singh’s childhood friend and classmate. We were there, young Saeed, and we arrived at the interchange 30 minutes early. While we waited for Ayaz to give his factotum I asked the teashop worker if he knew anything more about Gai or Manmohan Singh. I was pointed to a large, dark-skinned man with impressive whiskers who was sitting in a car. was indeed a classmate of good old Dr Singh. He said that he wasn’t up for “taking any interviews” because he didn’t want to be “that famous”. He spoke all this in English, while I spoke to him in Punjabi. I turned and walked away. I walked away five minutes later when he approached me and began to talk about Manmohan Sing. Our young guides Shahid & Imran arrived to rescue us. “Past Balkassar oil fields, the country road wind through freshly harvested wheat fields. It also passes isolated homesteads. Gai looked just like any other village in Salt Range. It had a stone-lined pond, shaded by a spreading pal (two ponds), and brick-plastered houses with large courtyards where goats with swollenudders kept the milk supply fresh. 73 brick-paved others not, with wandering cattle, women bearing water pots on their heads and dogs lolling in the drain by the side. We saw some men sitting in open spaces under an acacia tree and we turned our car in their direction. Shahid laughed and stated that they would already be aware of what we were up to. We were not a new concept, thanks to the numerous news agencies and TV channels dropping like locusts on poor Gai. Ghulam Muhammad Khan, one of the three older men, said that he was Dr Singh’s classmate. Ayaz had warned me. I tried to be skeptical when he mentioned teachers Fazal Karim (from Jhelum), and Daulat Ram. The former taught classes three through four, while the latter taught one and two. Manmohan Singh, a young man, wore his hair in a bun and was secured with coloured mullin. He was calm and studious. very good at arithmetic, stood first in class and kept away from mischief. His family lived on the southeast side in the Hindu mohalla. There was also a shop where his father operated. Mohammed Khan couldn’t remember what was sold at that shop. He said that the entire Hindu mohalla was destroyed and burned during Partition riots. Although it was rebuilt later on, not one of the buildings that still stands today is original to the old days. Manmohan Singh could not visit his ancestral village if he wanted to, as the walls of the house would no longer hold the memories of his family from the time before Partition. Mohammed Khan didn’t know if Dr Singh had left with his family before or after the rioting started. We walked along the narrow street until we reached the school. It was brand new. It couldn’t have been the place where Manmohan Singh, the child, could have learned his lessons. I thought to my self. It turned out that, while the new building and the gateway were both brand-new, the old rooms on the other side of the courtyard had been razed. The school management had cut Manmohan Singh’s last link with Gai Bigal, unbeknownst to them. The only thing that binds the Indian Prime Minister with this village now are distant memories and the handful of elderly men who went to school alongside him. The register is quickly becoming a famous work of Iqbal, the schoolmaster. The register was in ruins, but the paper hadn’t yet become brittle. Although the school was established in 1926, the first page at serial 180 listed admissions for the year. Another view of Temple at Warala Site. 75 76 |79 Urial. 80| 1932 onwards. This form was inherited by Iqbal. He didn’t know how many pages were missing. One Manmohan Singh was the name at serial 187. Gurmukh Singh, a shopkeeper from the caste Kohli, was his birth date. Fazal Karim had engraved the inscription in very fine handwriting. Mohammed Khan was not actually talking through his hat. The youngster entered school shortly after his fifth birthday, on April 17, 1937 in class 1. Four years later, he left school on the last day March. Manmohan Singh, who was in the Gai School’s fourth grade, moved to a school in Munday. One person claimed that Dr Singh was one among six sisters and four brothers. We searched the entire register up to 1947 looking for other children of Gurmukh. There were none. The register’s pages lost may contain the secrets of Dr Singh’s siblings, who attended Gai Primary School. The secret will remain, at least for now. The mystery grew. Another Manmohan Singh was also a shopkeeper, and a Kohli. It was not possible to determine which one of Gai’s two sons would have risen to head the government of India. Now, I read somewhere that Dr Singh was 72. It couldn’t be the other Manmohan, who was born May 1934. Age indicated Gurmukh Singh’s son was the one to be chosen. He was the child who could do figures well and had been able to transform India’s economy as her Finance Minister. The 1937 admissions page also included Ahmed Khan. Iqbal, the school teacher said that this man was still living in the village. We drove to his home and asked for directions. 81 us to stop. I got out of the car and went up to him. I replied, “I’m looking to find Ahmed Khan.” The man replied, “I’m Ahmed Khan and that is why I signalled for you to stop.” He said that he was certain that he saw his car from behind the house and knew we were coming after him. I wanted to find out why and how. Ahmed Khan said, “I’m Manmohan S’s classmate. Aren’t you?” It sounded like I was asking a foolish question. Our man was ‘interrogated by’ every media person who showed up in Gai to Manmohan Singh’s spoor. Ahmed Khan Scenic view at the Fort. remembered precious little and, thankfully, he did not have a rehearsed spiel — at least not thus far. He didn’t know how many siblings his classmate was. He could not even recall the name of his father. However, he echoed Mohammed Khan’s verdict: Manmohan Sing was quiet and scholarly and kept his head down. Ahmed Khan shared a very interesting fact. Manmohan Singh completed the four grades at Gai, and the eight at neighboring Munday. He then moved to Murid, which is a village near Chakwal. Ghulam Mohamed and Ahmed Khan did not reach the fourth grade. He didn’t know if his family had sold their property and moved in masse, or if Manmohan was the only one who attended school. Ayaz Amir had previously told me about a tenuous Murid connection. He had told me that an Indian journalist had written to him a year earlier, saying that Manmohan Sing (now India’s Finance Minister) lived and traveled daily to Murid. However, Munday and Murid were not on the agenda. The school register at Gai I knew was a lucky accident. We handled all kinds of records in such a way that it was impossible to find comparable evidence at any of these places. I asked the boys in the schoolroom if they knew the reason all the media people were visiting their village. One of the boys stood up and told us that Manmohan Sing, the Indian Prime Minister had been through the same school many years ago. I asked them if they were inspired by that. A few timid nods followed. Although I may have seemed corny to them I explained that I wanted them to aspire to become a politician in the mold of Dr Manmohan Singh, who, according Gai legend, received a one rupee monthly salary for his time at Finance Minister. They should not follow those who are ripping Jinnah’s Pakistan apart. A man introduced himself as Javed (a former soldier) and said that he wanted Dr Manmohan Sing to know that he was welcomed to Gai. 83 “We will receive him like he has never been received before,” he said. He said, “He is a son from this village, and he has done our proud by rising up to the highest office of India.” Perhaps Dr Manmohan Sing’s unflinching honesty in politics and dedication to the cause for his adopted country (the country he fled in 1947 to save his life) will become more well-known. He is a proud man and there will surely be a young man who wants to follow his example.
