- Bansavalinama is a historical book written in 1769 CE which goes through the history of all the Gurus. In the chapter about Guru Gobind Singh Ji the author, Kesar Singh Chibbar, explains and quotes a few passages from the rare composition Ugardanthi, which was written by Guru Gobind Singh Ji.
- This is an important reference to note because there is a common misunderstanding that Sukha Singh Granthi of Patna Sahib wrote Ugardanthi because it is found in his handwritten copy of Sri Dasam Granth and it does not find much other mention in other old hand written Sri Dasam Granth Sahib's. This shows that Ugardanthi did exist and was written about before the time of Sukha Singh.
