When Prithi chand and his wife came to know that mata Ganga was pregnang, they lost their peace of mind. They were always quarrelling with each other. Guru arjan devji thought to remain away from amritsar. The inhabitants of the village were devoted sikhs of the Guru. They were very much pleased to have the Guru living among them. The Headman of the village vcacated a big haveli. Guru Arjan dev ji and Mata Ganga ji began to live there. Soon that haveli itself was voncerted into the darbar house, as the devotees were thronging there to see their beloved Guru. According to the blessing of baba budha ji (Guru) Hargobind was born on june 9, 1595 at village Wadali. In the memory of this happy occassion Guru Arjan dev ji dug a huge well with the voluntary help of the sikhs. It was so large that it could accommodate six persian wheels. Due to this well of the six persian wheels that place late on came to be known as Chheharta. The sikhs rejoiced at the birth of Hargobind, but Prithi chand and his wife lost the balance of their mind. For them only way to get the Guruship was to kill the new born hcild. So they planned to kill the child one way or the other. There was one old nurse in the housr of Guru Arjan Dev. Prithi chand paid her some money and took her into confidence. She smeared here nipples with poison. Shee took the child with great lovem but when she tried to rise up in order to go to sage place, she fainted and fell down. The poison applied to her nipples had affected her. When she found that she was the verge of death, she confessed her guilt and told the family that prithi chand ahd birebed her to kill the new born child.
Though the sikhs took this dirty act of Prithi Chand very seriously , Prithi chand remained undeterred.
After Some time he sent a snake charmer. He demonstrated his show in two or there houses and then entered the house of the Guru. Family members and other sikhs residing there came out to see his show. the Child Hargobind was also enjoying the show with great interest. When the snake charmer found that child was taking great interest he sent one snake towards the child. Child hargobind caught the snake from the head and rubeed it on the floor with such a force that snake died at the spot. All were astonished to see this brave act of the child. the Sikhs interrogated the snake charmer and he confessed that prithi chand had send him to kill the child. Again Prithi Chand bribed a Domestic servant of the Guru and Asked him to poson the milk of the child. After posoning the milk the servant offered the milk to the child Hargoind. But eh child refused to take the milk . But where, Hargobind took the bowl of the milk and threw it away, a god lapped up the milk and died at the spot. where the servant was questioned, he confessed that prithi chand had bribed him to kill the child.such nefarious acts of prithi chand distressed Guru ji. Where Prithi chand failed to kill the child by such means, he planned to kill Guru Hargobind with the help of his child friend.
