I’ve seen pretty much all shaheeds being given respect equally. We remember them all in our ardas. Paintings and pictures are people’s imagination. They have made the Guru Jis and Sahibzaade as they imagined them. So we can’t rely on these as accurate and true. I think perhaps we just hear more in katha about the Sahibzaade's sacrifice because they were so young and it is such a large injustice. True, we should be remembering other children such as Baba Banda Singh Bahadur's son as well, that is our mistake if we do not give them as much respect.

For us who are attached to our families and to our children, i think the sacrifice of the Sahibzaade is shared specifically for the reason to show that Guru Ji did not discriminate between them and the other Sikhs on the battlefield. So that WE can learn from it and remember. All of us are princes and princesses as children of Guru Ji.
