Shakti Singh had 17 sons the eldest was Rao Bhanji (of Bhinder). Rao Bhanji and Rao Achaldas were born within months of each other, although Rao Achaldas was born a little earlier, the news of his birth came after Rao Bhanji had been proclaimed the heir apparent. On Shakti Singh's death Rao Bhanji was crowned Rawat and other 16 sons including the eldest Achaldas(of Bansi) went for cremation of their father as was the custom in those days where the crown prince did not leave the palace. When they returned Rao Bhanji told them to leave the palace and fend for themselves elsewhere as he had limited resources for all 17 brothers. The brothers agreed and left. During their journey the pregnant wife of Achaldas was about to deliver then sudden and heavy rains started. At this moment they took her under a tree but a rock was falling onto the place, his younger brother Bheem Singh who was really strong stood under the rock.
