Gen Singh is the iconoclastic identity amidst the land of Paralkot whose chivalry and bravery not only united the populace of Paralkot but even led to the break out of a revolution.
Gen Singh was rather a fire of change who desired to fight the autocracies to re-establish their culture. In ancient India Paralkot was an independent state. When the Kanker and Bastar District
were under control of British and Marathas at the same time the local abysmal Aboojhmarias felt that their culture may be destroyed due to presence of British and Marathas.
So these local persons gathered under leadership of Gen Singh as they dreamt of taking revenge from those foreigners who had not only confiscated their land but even attempted to change the cultural scenario. They started to gather in Paralkot for revolution. After that they elected their leader Gen Singh. First they fought against Marathas and British in Paralkot. They started to murder of Marathas and British one by one. Their aim was to establish independent Bastar. Then an English caption Mr. Agnue ordered to abolishment of this revolution and in end they got success on 12 January. Gen Singh was arrested and hanged till death on 20 January1825.
