Bhagat Kanwar Ram (13th April 1885 – 1 November 1939 ) at village Jarwar of sakhar (Shakur) district. He was a Sindhi singer and Sufi poet. it was said when Bhagat Kanwar Ram Sahib sang people would forget about everything. People used to offer lot of money and jewels to Bhagat Kanwar Ram Sahib while he sang but Bhagat Kanwar Ram Sahib never kept even a penny for himself or for his family out of that money. He would instead distribute it amongst the poor and needy people because he believed that his touching voice was a gift of God to Him. He was a humble, generous and compassionate man. He wore a long kurta and a red head gear. He sang and danced at Bhagats. During Bhagat - the sessions of devotional music, singing and dance, Sant Kanwar Ram was used to sing creations of famous saints & poets Mira, Kabir and Shah Latif. It happened during the Bhagat, when Bhagat Sahib sung the "Raga Sarang" (Indian Classical Music - Raga of Rain) the clear sky started to fill with rain clouds and a heavy rain followed. Bhagat Kanwar Ram was assassinated in communal riots in Sukkur on 1st November, 1939 at Rukari (also known as Ruk) railway station. The record company HMV made record preserving 20 of the saint’s musical renditions. "Naale Alakh Je Bedo Tar Muhinjo" One of the most Famous Song Of Bhagat Kanwarram. List of Bhagats
