The Childhood

Swami Keshwanand (1883-1972) was a great saint, freedom fighter and social reformist of Rajasthan and Punjab in India. He was born at village Magloona in Sikar district of Rajasthan in year 1883 in a poor Dhaka gotra Jat Hindu family. His father’s name was Thakarsi and mother’s name Saran. His childhood name was Birama. Birama did not get the formal primary education, as there was no school in that desert region in those days of British Raj.

Birama spent his childhood as a shepherd boy. At the age of five years Birama along with family left the village Magloona and moved to nearby city Ratangarh. In Ratangarh his father Thakarsi used to carry Seths (Businessman) of Ratangarh to Delhi on his camel. He lost his father at the age of 7 at Ratangarh in 1890. Birama and his mother moved from here to there in search of fodder for animals and landed at village Kelania in Sri Ganganagar district in 1897.

The Rajasthan state was heading for the greatest famine of history. There was no vegetation left on the ground. There was no drop of water. All the animals died for want of fodder. People survived on the bark of Khejri trees and seeds of grasses. Even that also became scarce. There was nothing like governance. The ruling Samants were least bothered for the poor people. Birama’s mother Saran could not bear the natural and human calamity and died in year 1899 at village Kelania.

Education

The greatest famine of the history, 1899, forced Birama to leave the desert region and moved to Punjab for livelihood. He approached Mahant Kushaldas of udasi sect and expressed willingness to learn Sanskrit. Mahant Kushaldas advised that as a Jat he would not be allowed to learn Sanskrit. Birama became sanyasi (saint) to learn Sanskrit language in 1904. He got education at Sadhu Ashram Fajilka (Punjab). He learnt Hindi, Gurumukhi and Sanskrit languages at the Ashram. In year 1905 on the occasion of Prayag Kumbh Mela Mahatma Hiranandji Avadhut awarded Birama, the title of Swami Keshwanand,.

The Freedom Fighter

Swami Keshwanand felt the heat of Jalianwala Bagh Massacre. He started going to the meetings of Arya Samaj and was influenced by its philosophy. He had a strong desire for the upliftment of helpless poor people. He started attending the meetings of congress. He mat Khan Abdul Gaffar Khan at Ahmedabad Adhiveshan of the congress. Pandit Madan Mahan Malviya influenced him. He attended Delhi Adhiveshan of congress chaired by Madan Mahan Malviya in 1919. He joined Indian Independence Movement under the leadership of Mahatma Gandhi. For taking part in non-cooperation movement of Mahatma Gandhi he was imprisoned for two years in Ferozepur (1921-1922). The role of Swami Keshwanand became so important in freedom movement that he was appointed dictator of Ferozepur district in 1930 to conduct the freedom movement in that area. He was again arrested in 1930 but released due to Gandhi-Irvin agreement.

The Social Reformist

Swami Keshwanand felt that the knowledge of Hindi language is must to keep the country united and to educate the public about nationality. He started “Vedant Pushp Vatika” library in year 1911 in the Ashram with the support of funds collected in it. In 1912 he started a Sanskrit school in the Ashram. In 1916 he handed over the charge of Ashram to his guru-bhai Shyamdas

Swami Keshwanand was a great social worker. He always remained associated with the spread of education, social and village upliftment. He was connected with the establishment of Sahitya Sadan, Abohar, Ferozepur district in Punjab (1917-1932). He started his progrrame of spreading knowledge of Hindi with a Hindi-forum in Abohar town. He founded ‘Nagari Pracharini Sabha’ institute at Abohar in 1920 that was renamed as Sahitya Sadan, Abohar.

He started a press ‘Deepak’ at Abohar in 1933 and published material in Hindi language and got distributed to villagers either free or at a very nominal price. Sahitya Sadan, Abohar developed into an institution comparable with Shantiniketan of Ravindranath Tagore. He organized 30th All India Hindi Sahitya Sammelan at Sahitya Sadan, Abohar in 1941. He was awarded degree of “Sahitya Vachaspati” looking to his services for Hindi in 1942.

Swami Keshwanand was connected with Gramothan Vidyapith, Sangaria (Rajasthan) (1932-1952). He was made director of Jat School Sangaria in 1932 that was just to close for want of funds. He went from village to village and to the Seths of desert region who were in Calcutta and far off places and collected funds. He became instrumental in starting hundreds of schools in the desert region. The Jat School Sangaria was renamed as Gramothan Vidyapith, Sangaria in 1948. He developed here a beautiful museum with collection of rare documents, ancient items, paintings etc. brought from various places. Large-scale plantations were done in this arid area with the help of people and students of the Institute. Gramothan Vidyapith, Sangaria had become center of inspiration for educationists from India and abroad.

Swami Keshwanand , an orphan, illiterate, nomadic man who never got formal education in a school was the founder of more than 300 schools, 50 hostels, so many libraries, social service centers and museums. He got 100 books translated from other languages or wrote himself. With the great efforts of 11 years he got published the Book “History of Sikhs” in Hindi in 1954.

He had deep understanding of society in the desert region. He tried all his life with full devotion to remove social evils like untouchability, child marriage, woman illiteracy, indebt ness, poverty, backwardness, intoxication, dissipation, bad customs etc. An idea about his visionary and logical thoughts can be had from the book he has published- “Maru Bhumi Seva Karya” in Hindi. In this book he has explained the peculiarities of the Desert region, identified the problems and suggested proper solutions.

Swami Keshwanand, born in a Jat Hindu family, Sadhu of Udasi sect propagated by Srichandji, son of Sikh guru Nanakdevji, was a unique example of communal harmony. He organized celebrations in honour of Sikh, Bisnoi, Namdhari and Jain gurus. Gramothan Vidyapith, Sangaria being adjoining to Pakistan felt the heat of 1947 division of the country. He got admitted the wounded Muslims in hospitals and arranged food and shelter for them.

Swami Keshwanand was member of Hindi Sahitya Sammelan, Allahabad. He was imprisoned several times in satyagraha movements of Mahatma Gandhi. He was presented “Abhinandan Granth” by the chief minister of Rajasthan on March 9,1958. He was first elected to the Rajya Sabha of India in 1952 and was re-elected to the House in April, 1958. He remained member of Rajya Sabha till 1964. He died on September 13,1972 at Delhi.

Department of Posts, Government of India, has issued a commemorative postage stamp on "India's Struggle for Freedom" on Swami Keshwanand on August 15, 1999.

With a view to bring more and more Jat famous persons I have written above article on Swami Keshwanand Ji, whose life is quite inspiring. It also reflects the socio economical and political adversities in those times of Jamidari system of Rajputs in Rajasthan. I have given this article in wikipedia-a free Encyclopedia under construction in which any body can edit and add the facts. Any additions in above are most welcome.

Dear burdak ji,

we all have forgotten the name of great seth chhaju ram of hissar. seth chhaju ram was born in a poor jat family but was very briliant, he migrated to calcutta and started working with the marwari seths there. he made so much progress in the business that in his times he was one of the richest man. kindly add his name too. and let me request all members to not mention every jat like present m.p. or a senior army officer or doctor or professor. greats are those who have done something very special for the society in general and for jats in perticular.

thank u.

I respect and appreciate that u are compiling the list of Famous JATS, but it would be not be a good idea to place names of Famous JATS like Sir CHHOTU RAM,CH. CHARAN SINGH AND ALL with Ch. Devi Lal.
I Agree that he was a poor farmer,honest, loyal who had done lot for peasants. But don't you think that DID HE GAVE SUCH VALUES TO HIS SON AND GRAND SONS,WHO WERE THE MOST CORRUPT IN HARYANA. THEY HAVE PLAYED WITH THE FUTURE of many young minds who used to prepare for Govt. Jobs but none of them could get because yhey had no money and approach to them.
Those near to them enjoyed , but what about the AAM INSAAN.

So I THINK THAT WHAT DEVILAL DID FOR POOR MAN IS ALL LOST DUE TO CORRUPT GOVERNENCE BY CHAUTALA AND HIS SONS.
IT IS FATHER'S(Ch. Devi Lal) FALIURE TO KEEP HIS SON( O.P.Chautala) and Grandson's on RIGHT PATH TO SERVE MASSES(INFACT POOR),WHO COULD NOT GIVE MORAL VALUES TO THEM. THEIR MAIN MOTIVE WAS TO CREATE WEALTH AND JUST WEALTH(WHICH IS NOT IN CRORES TODAY, BUT STILL LESS THAN BLOOD OF A COMMON HARYANA MAN.


I am Sorry if other members of JATLAND and JAT community is hurt, but this was the plight of the masses of HARYANA.

Thanks,

Its very sad to know that many of us do not know or have forgotten Swami Omanandji.

He sacrificed everything, almost everything for the upliftment of the Jats. A great freedom fighter, he was the founder of Jhajhar Gurukul. A man who had his own values and principles and always lived with them.

I was lucky to get his "Aashirwad" in my only meeting with him during his last days. It was in Jaipur Golden hospital in Rohini, New Delhi where he had come for his treatment. Sadly, he could not recover and made his way to heaven soon after.

Though I don't know much, but whatever I have heard about him from my grandfather (a regular visitor to Jhajhar Gurukul) I can only say that he really was like a father figure to all the Jats.

Though he is not there anymore, he has left us with people who can carry on with his noble work. Couple of months after his death I visited Gurukul in Jhajhar and was amazed to see the work he had done. It was an amazing experience for me... I could feel breathing fresh as I entered there. Not to mention the "Gau doodh" (cow milk) which was served to me.

His collection in the museum is awesome. Besides, there are many books on JATs written by him which one can find in Gurukul's library.

I would request all the people reading this to visit that place atleast once. This way we can appreciate his work to the society.

Sumit

Baldev Ram Mirdha (1889-1953) was a great social reformer of Marwar region in Rajasthan, India. He was born in rad gotra Jat Hindu family of village Kuchera in Nagaur district in Rajasthan in 1889. His father’s name was Manga Ram. His family was given the work of Department of Post and Telegraph. “Mirdha” was the title awarded to his family for this work by then ruler of Jodhpur. He was founder of ‘Marwar Kisan Sabha’ and ‘Rajasthan Kisan Sabha’. Baldev Ram Mirdha is popularly known as Kisan-Kesari.

In Government service

Baldev Ram Mirdha was educated at Jodhpur. After completing his education, he got a job in the department of population. He was appointed sub-inspector in police department in 1914. He became reader of Inspector General, M.R.Kotewala in 1921. He was appointed on the post of police inspector in 1923. He was promoted to the post of Superintendent of Police in 1926 and Deputy Inspector General in 1943. Being on a higher post in Government, he realized the problems of the farmers of the Marwar region of Rajasthan and resigned from his post in 1947 for the cause of poor farmers.

Condition of farmers in Rajasthan

In making an assessment of his work one has necessarily to take ones mind back to the bygone era under the Maharajas and their feudal Lords. The times have changed so much that a youngman born and brought up in these times can hardly appreciate properly the difficult times in which his ancestors had been living since times immemorial. It will be no exaggeration to say that in those days one could not treat even one's body as exclusively his own. Though the position of Kisan in what was Khalsa (under the direct control of the state) was better in comparison to a Kisan of the Jagir areas, he was only a little above a beast of burden. Every thing that the Kisan had, never treated as his own. In Jagir areas all cultivators were really landless. There was no tenancy Law and one could be thrown away from the land one cultivated at the pleasure of Jagirdar, his "malik". In most of the Jagirs a Jagirdar would in the first instance be taking fifty percent of the produce. This would be taken by actual division of the produce on the thrashing floor or by appraisal of the standing crop (kunta). The latter method proved at times more onerous as the appraisal depended on the whims of the Kamdar. Then over and above the share of the produce the Kisan had to pay numerous "lags" or cesses. Together with the share of the produce known as "Hasil" these cesses meant that the Kisans had to part with more than eighty percent of their produce. The findings of the Sukhdeonarain Committee in the years 1940-42 bear this out. If a Kisan had to marry his daughter he had to pay "Chavri Lag" if he held a dinner then a "Kansa Lag"; if members of the family separated then "Dhunwa Lag" and so on. If the Jagirdar had a guest then fodder for his mount had to be supplied. Then there was "begar" that is forced labour, for tilling the personal lands of the Jagirdar. The homestead in which the Kisan lived in the Abadi had to be vacated in case he ceased cultivating the land. He could not alienate the plot to anyone. Then the bigger Jagirdars had judicial powers including magisterial powers. Further they had their own police force besides the revenue staff. This enabled them to keep their stronghold on the Kisans. Over and above this policy of divide and rule was fully practiced. By offering the temptation of giving better land for cultivation one Kisan would be set against another. There were no schools worth the name in rural areas and the masses were steeped in ignorance.

Spread of education

Realizing that it was beyond the means of the Kisans to have their own schools and which was obviously the Government's responsibility, he established chain of the boarding houses instead in the state where sons of the Kisans could live with their frugal means and get educated. With the help of colleagues he got constructed boarding houses at Jodhpur, Barmer, Merta, Parbatsar, Didwana, Nagaur, Pipar etc., towns of Marwar region. Thousands of students used these boarding houses and became Doctors, Engineers, Officers, Politicians, and Teachers etc. By organizing meetings for eradication of evil customs he infused consciousness in them and also tried to bring about unity. He was instrumental in strengthening the Panchayats.

Friend of oppressed farmers

It was in those times that Baldev Ram Mirdha came on the scene as the quide, philosopher and friend of the oppressed Kisans. Heredity and environment had given him many good things of life. He was himself in Govt. service yet he identified himself fully with the cause of the Kisan. The bureaucracy of the times was no means sympathetic to this cause. The Jagirdars were in the Council of Ministers and were on other important posts, which gave them effective leverage. Baldev Ram Mirdha was almost the only Kisan holding an important post. As a wise tactician, therefore, he chose spread of education and eradication of social evils as his tools to work with. He had deep understanding of society in the Marwar region. He tried all his life with full devotion to remove social evils like untouchability, child marriage, woman illiteracy, indebt ness, poverty, backwardness, intoxication, dissipation, bad customs etc. This would not ostensibly give cause of offence to the bureaucracy and the Jagirdars.

He was one-man legal aid forum for the poor Kisans. A Kisan in trouble would go with his problem to his house, the outer portion of which would invariably provide shelter to him and one could not afford to have his meals elsewhere would be served a meal from his kitchen and then he would afford legal aid to him. After a stage was reached, when Kisans could provide some workers, he got established the “Marwar Kisan Sabha”. Though he was not an office bearer he was its alter ego. It became a mighty organization in a couple of years. The Kisan leader of the eminence of Late Sir Choturam of Punjab was the chief guest at a big Kisan Conference in Jodhpur in 1942. Unlike elaborate arrangements at political meets now-a-days thousands of Kisans would come with bajara bread of flour tied in "potlies" and a water tap and an open area for their stay would do. In other words there used to be no expenditure worth the name of these conferences.

Victory of farmers

Then came the demand for settlement of Jagir lands to cash rents, abolition of cesses, abolition of judicial powers of the Jagirdars, for due for Kisans in Govt. Service and so on. The state could no longer resist these just demands. Judicial and Police powers of the Jagirdars were withdrawn, cash settlement was introduced and cesses were consolidated with rent. This was however not without stiff resistance from the feudal lords. There were riots almost in every big Jagir area. Many Kisans had to perform the Supreme Sacrifice in Dabra, Khinsar, Ratkudia and several other villages, there was lot of bloodshed and these villages have become hallowed places for the Kisans.

On 15th august, 1947 India became free and a popular Ministry was installed in Jodhpur. Recognizing the importance of the Kisan Sabha, its general Secretary Nathuram Mirdha, son of Baldev Ram Mirdha, was included in the Ministry. In about a year the “Marwar Tenancy Act, 1949” was passed and this put the Kisans of Marwar at par with any Kisan in a progressive state. Overnight the tenants in the cultivator possession of their lands became khatedar tenants on April 6, 1949 without paying a pie. This was the achievement of one of the important objectives set forth by Baldev Ram Mirdha.

Abolition of Jagirs

After the Formation of Rajasthan, Baldev Ram Mirdha who had by then retired from Government service formed the “Rajathan Kisan Sabha” and unified the Kisans of Rajasthan under its banner. He was its first President. Since the broad objectives of the Kisan Sabha and the congress were identical the congress leaders approached Baldev Ram Mirdha to unite the Rajasthan Kisan Sabha with the Congress. Baldev Ram Mirdha was a visionary and he realized that the two could not and should not remain separate. Therefore, he just made one demand from the national leaders that the Jagirs be abolished forthwith in Rajathan. This was agreed to by the congress high Command with the result that the two organizations unified like the holy streams at the Prayag Sangam and Kisans became the flesh, bones, and sinews muscles of the congress, indeed the very lifeblood of the congress.

The Jagirs were soon abolished. He threw himself heart and soul for getting maximum numbers of seats for the Congress at the first general elections. In spite of the over whelming odds to the late Maharaja of Jodhpur being in the fray he could secure at least four congress candidates returned from the Nagaur district. So much was the opposition from the Maharaja that even Jai Narain Vyas lost the election at two places where the Maharaja himself opposed him. In the Jodhpur area two of the ex-presidents of the “Marwar Kisan Sabha” were weaned away by the late Maharaja and both of them were got elected as his candidates. However, Baldev Ram Mirdha never gave up hope. He never believed in bedeviling personal relations. In course of time both the members came back and joined the congress. In spite of Baldev Ram Mirdha being the protagonist of the Kisan his personal relations with the Jagirdar were quite friendly. As a statesman, he believed in tactful use of words as would keep old friends, win new ones and over come hostility of those against him.

One cannot under rate his achievements at the first elections. Even one candidate less from Nagaur would have meant that congress would be in minority as against the combined opposition and history would have taken a different course in Rajasthan.

Kisan Kesari

Anniversary of late Baldev Ram Mirdha will always be a great day of the Kisans of Rajasthan in general and former Marwar State in Particular. In remembering him one recalls to one's mind an individual or an institution. The aggregate of traits he possessed and which distinguished him from people of common stuff had shot him up on the terra firma of Marwar. His mental alertness, his ability to quickly asses a situation, clear and logical exposition of a subject in the language which the masses could understand, the depth of interest he took in the welfare of the underdog, his ability for ensuring social cohesion and the qualities of leadership in general made him the idol of Kisans, a position which none else had attained in these parts of our land. It is because of this reason that farmers of Rajasthan popularly call Baldev Ram Mirdha as Kisan-Kesari.
Baldev Ram Mirdha was never mindful of his growing old age or ill-health and while working for cause of Kisans nearest to his heart, he brethed his last in harness at Ladnun, only a few months after the elections, getting ablaze a trail for others to follow. He died on August 2, 1953, of heart attack, at the age of 64, while delivering speech in a public meeting.

It will be nice tribute to his memory if the people of Rajathan in general and Kisans in Particular try to emulate his example and imbibe his virtues in their lives for what illustrious Kisan son lived and worked for. His life will ever inspire the coming generations of Kisan workers.

Unfortunately, I don't have more information on Swami Omanandji.

After my only visit, the circumstances did not allow me to go to Gurukul. Jhajhar. For the last 1.5 years I am in Bangalore. Maybe our friends from Jhajhar or nearby that place can help us in this regard. They can provide us with information on Swamiji.

I am hoping to read more on Swamiji in this loop.

There is differenece between being famous and being well known. I am not sure if all the nemes mentioned by members fall in the catagory of famous. Getting elected as MP or making it to the post of Principal of a college does not make one famous. If I am asked to pick up the names of famous Jats, I would pick up only the following ones;

1. Sir Chotu Ram
2. Ch Charan Singh
3. Maharaja Suraj Mal
4. Ch Devi Lal
5. Dara Singh
6. Col. Hoshyar Singh, PVC
7. Virendra Sehwag

Famous can be considered only those whom common men from all castes know and those who inspired others very significantly..

Sathiyo,

I don’t think anything wrong in including among the list of famous jats people like Ch. Sajjan Kumar (MP –Outer Delhi). Shayad kuchh logo ko taklif hui hogi because of his alleged involvement in 1984 Riots. Kisi bhi conclusion par pahunchne se pahle hamein uski andruni bato pe bhi jana chahiye.

Lekin dosto ek baat sochne ki hai____in 1984 riots the allegations were put not only against Ch. Sajjan Kumar Ji , but also against the following if I am not wrong:-
# Vasant Sathe.
# Kamal Nath
# Jagdish Titler
# HKL Bhagat

Yahan ek baat dekhne ki hai ki___why only Ch. Sajjan Kumar was targeted and highlighted most out of all these guys. All except Sajjan Kumar are holding key positions and where as Sajjan Kumar has put all his efforts just only to get the congress ticket from the world’s largest constituency…..where he is extremely popular for his work towards upliftment of downtroden .He himself is from very humble background. His margin of victory simply a proof of his popularity. Sajjan Kumar was very close to Sanjay Gandhi and Indira Gandhi and that was the main reason for implicating him in the Sikh riots where he has not done anything wrong or exceptionally extra involvement. People were just scared of his popularity and his proximity to Gandhi Family.

Sajjan Kumar won in 1977 councilor election when it was anti congress wave.
Then he became MP in 1980 at the age of around 37years, by defeating Rajender Lakra(elder brother of Ch. Sahib Singh Verma).
After the death of Indira Gandhi people within the congress kept him at distance(because Rajiv Gandhi was new), but later Rajiv Gandhi realized Sajjan Kumar’s potential and sincerity and gave him chance in 1992 election and he defeated Ch. Sahib Singh Verma.
Again start of a bad phase for him after death of Rajiv Gandhi people with in party never let him be close to Sonia… but it was sincerity and patience of Sajjan Kumar that later Sonia also realized the truth and again he was given a chance to contest election from world’s largest constituency OUTER DELHI…this time he again defeated Ch. Sahib Singh Verma with a huge margin of more than 2 Lakhs vote. Ch. Sahib Singh Verma is himself a very popular figure.
So we must support such kind of personality who would have done so much work for atleast the jats of delhi if he had been not made the scapegoat. He just paid the price for being very close to Gandhi family and being a Jat and above all being very popular.

Sajjan Kumar doesn’t have anything against Sikh community also. He never gives any irresponsible statements and comments.

The Outer Delhi Constituency(MP) , has 21 MLA’ constituency in it and 42 constituency of Councilor.

Jai Ram Ji Ki.

Early life

Nathuram Mirdha (1921-1996) was a great parliamentarian, freedom fighter, social reformer and popular farmer leader of Marwar region in Rajasthan, India. He was born in rad gotra Jat Hindu family of village Bilada in Nagaur district in Rajasthan on 20 October 1921. His father’s name was Thana Ram Mirdha.

Education

Nathuram Mirdha passed his metric from Darbar High School Jodhpur with first division. He did MA (Economics) and completed LLB degree in 1944 from Lucknow University. He started practice as advocate in 1946.
Rise as farmer leader
Nathuram Mirdha was simple, soft-spoken but talented personality. He was committed to the service of people especially farmers. He was friendly with every person who came in his contact. He was straightforward and man of words. He organized a massive farmer gathering at Jodhpur under the Chairmanship of Sir Chhoturam. He joined the Institution of farmers “Kisan Sabha” founded by Baldev Ram Mirdha as Secretary in 1946.

Nathuram Mirdha visited every village of Marwar region and had person-to-person contact. He united farmers of Marwar against the oppression of Jagirdars under the banner of “Marwar Kisan Sabha” and “Rajasthan Kisan Sabha”. These Institutions developed into very strong organizations and became instruments of social change in abolition of Jagirs and spread of education.

Freedom fighter and political leader

Nathuram Mirdha simultaneously fought feudalism as well as the British during the freedom Movement. Drawing his strength primarily from the peasantry, he was an undisputed leader of his
People for nearly five decades. Nathuram Mirdha made the service of poor farmers and labourers as main objective of his life.

On 15th august, 1947 India became free and a popular Ministry was installed in Jodhpur. Recognizing the importance of the Kisan Sabha, its general Secretary Nathuram Mirdha, son of Baldev Ram Mirdha, was included in the Ministry.He won his first assembly election in 1952 from Merta City constituency with a huge majority. He was a Member of the Rajasthan Legislative Assembly from 1952 to 1967 and 1984 to 1989 and held several important portfolios in the Government of Rajasthan. He is known for strengthening agriculture and cooperative sectors in Rajasthan. Commencing from 1972, he was returned to the Lok Sabha six times. He served in the Union Council of Ministers in 1979-80 and 1989-90. He served too, with distinction, as the Chairman of the National Agricultural Prices Commission.

Chairman of National Agricultural Prices Commission

As Chairman of National Agricultural Prices Commission, he implemented number of schemes in the interest of farmers. There is an interesting historical anecdote about the Chairman of the National Agricultural Commission, Nathuram Mirdha, who, when asked by a foreign delegation as to what, according to him, was the culture of India, replied “Agriculture and no other culture is the culture of India”. The kingpin of agriculture in the country is the Cow, otherwise known as “Kamdhenu”.

He was Chairman of Maharaja Surajmal Institute, New Delhi for ten years. This institute progressed very fast during this period.

Differences with Indira Gandhi

Nathuram Mirdha developed differences with Mrs. Indira Gandhi in 1975 during emergency period. He left the National Congress and joined Lok Dal Party under the leadership of Chaudhari Charan Singh. Nathuram Mirdha, then of the Congress, won the 1971 and 1977 elections. He retained the seat for the Congress-Urs in 1980, and in 1984 kinsman Ram Niwas Mirdha of the Congress defeated him. In 1985 he was leader of Lok Dal in Rajasthan assembly. It was with his efforts and strategy that made Lok Dal party a national level organization. He was state president of Lok Dal Party in 1988. In 1989, contesting on the Janta Dal ticket, Nathuram defeated Ram Niwas.

By 1991 he had joined the Congress, for which party he won the seat in 1991 and 1996.Nathuram Mirdha joined Congress in 1991 after a period of 14 years. He was also the Deputy Leader of the Congress-I Parliamentary Party till 1996. In 1996 he got elected to Lok Sabha with a huge majority. That his popularity was undiminished can be seen from the 1996 result: he defeated his BJP rival H Kumawat by almost 160,000 votes. Sadly, he died soon after. In the by-election that followed Nathuram Mirdha's death, the BJP fielded his son Bhanu Prakash Mirdha, a newcomer to politics, and took the seat from the Congress (I).

Gandhi of Rajasthan

Mirdha was a veteran freedom fighter and an erudite Parliamentarian. He was Minister of State for Irrigation, Finance, Food and Civil Supplies and Chairman of many important Parliamentary Committees. He rendered yeoman service to the cause of the farmers, Scheduled Castes, Scheduled Tribes and other weaker sections of the society. His services to the farming community will be long remembered. A lawyer by profession, he also rendered invaluable service in the field of education by establishing many educational institutions and Hostels.

Nathuram Mirdha was a successful politician, leader of farmers and a man of mass appeal in Rajasthan. He was popularly known as Gandhi Baba of Rajasthan. Nathuram Mirdha passed away on the 30th August, 1996 in New Delhi at the age of seventy-five.

Thakur Deshraj (1903-1970) was a social worker, nationalist and a historian of Rajasthan in India. He was born in village Jhagina of district Bharatpur in Rajasthan, India. He was revenue minister in the princely state of Bharatpur. His wife was Tribeni Devi.

Before independence the state of Rajasthan was a union composed of several princely states of Rajputana, which came into existence on 30th March 1949. The conditions of the farmers in Rajasthan were worst. The farmers of the Rajasthan were exploited and oppressed by the Jagirdars during British Raj. They were deprived of fundamental rights. They were given inhuman treatment when the Jagirdars did not get cesses known as “lag” or “begar” in time, they were given hard punishments and their crop used to be destroyed. The farmers were tenants of the land and their condition was deplorable under the exploitation of landlords called Jajirdars, Zamindars and Bishwedars etc. The tenant had no right over the land cultivated by him. He was only the tiller of the soil, but was under the whimsical mercy of those landlords.

But the farmers as a class were awakening under the leadership of Thakur Deshraj and there was turmoil of the tiller demanding, “Land to tiller”. Thakur Deshraj united farmers of Rajasthan under the banner of Jat Mahasabha. He led the movement of nonpayment of cesses to Jagirdars in 1000 villages of district Jhunjhunu. He organized successful mass rallies of farmers of Sikar and Jhunjhunu districts in Shekhawati region of Rajasthan. This hostile state of affairs led the newly formed state govt. to take immediate steps to reconcile the situation. The pressure of protection of the tenants was so immense that the govt. had to take immediate steps and with this aim “The Rajasthan Protection of Tenants Ordinance, 1949” was promulgated to meet the burning need of the time. Thus Thakur Deshraj was an instrument of change in abolition of Jagirs in Rajasthan.

Good article Mr. Burdak. Recently, his anniversary was celebrated in Jaipur, which unfortunately I could not attend, during the first week of April. There was a little write up about it in local newspaper, I think both in Rajasthan Patrika and Dainik Bhaskar.

The newspaper write up listed quite a few speakers who spoke about him and his work. I can not locate the web link to the newspaper article.

We all know that he was a pioneer jat historian, writing his book 'Jat Itihas' way back in 1935, and thanks to this thread, we now know that he was a great social reformer too.

Hi Naveen ji,
I tried to find material on Thakur Deshraj from Jat Samaj magazine and some other publications. It is surprising that a person who has written so much about jats in his book Jat-Itihas, very little is written about him. With this intension I have put this article so that we can get more about him on the internet. I request the members to provide more details about his life and works he did for jats. I have gone through an article by his wife in Jat Samaj that pertains to the situations at the time of merger of Bharatpur state with Rajasthan. This article indicates that he was very popular with the public and merger could take place only after his consent.

Chaudhari Kumbharam Arya (1914-1995) was a freedom fighter, parliamentarian and popular leader of farmers in Rajasthan, India. He was born at village Khaira-Chhota of princely state Patiala on 10th May 1914 in a Jat Hindu family. His father's name was Bhairaram and mother's name was Jivani. His family migrated to village Saudanpur and finally to village Fefana of Nohar Tehsil of princely state Bikaner.

Early political movements

Chaudhari Kumbharam Arya got primary education at village school Fefana and joined Forest department Hanumangarh at the age of 14 years. Arya Samaj was spreading its activities in rural areas in those days. Brahmanical dominance and untouchability prevalent in the society forced him to follow the principles of Arya Samaj. He became strong follower of Swami Dayanand. He took part in the Lahore Congress Adhiveshan in 1930, due to which he was removed from service of Forest department. Later on he joined Police department to. He came in contact with two politicians of democratic thinking namely Mukta Prasad Vakil and Raghuvar Dayal Goyal. With their help he founded a political organization “Praja Parishad”. He resigned from police service to support the freedom movement started by Mahatma Gandhi. He became active in politics and started taking part in political movements. He took part in “Akhil Bharatiy Deshi Rajya Parishad Adhiveshan” in 1945.
Reformist moves for farmers

Chaudhari Kumbharam Arya united farmers of princely state Bikaner against the exploitation by Jagirdars. He was arrested by the ruler of Bikaner and imprisoned till independence. The Jagirdars in Bikaner state were exploiting farmers. Before independence the state of Rajasthan was a union composed of several princely states of Rajputana, which came into existence on 30th March 1949. The farmers were tenants of the land and their condition was deplorable under the exploitation of landlords called Jajirdars, Zamindars and Bishwedars etc. The tenant had no right over the land cultivated by him. He was only the tiller of the soil, but was under the whimsical mercy of those landlords. But the farmers as a class were awakening in Bikaner state under the leadership of Chaudhari Kumbharam Arya and there was turmoil of the tiller demanding, “Land to tiller”. This hostile state of affairs led the newly formed state government to take immediate steps to reconcile the situation. The pressure of protection of the tenants was so immense that the government had to take immediate steps and with this aim “The Rajasthan Protection of Tenants Ordinance, 1949” was promulgated to meet the burning need of the time. The Rajasthan Land Reforms and Resumption of Jagirs Act, 1952 was the landmark in the legal history of land reforms in Rajasthan. The pressure of farmers united under the leadership of Chaudhari Kumbharam Arya forced the state government to promulgate The Rajasthan Tenancy Act, 1955 which became applicable to the whole of Rajasthan. The overriding effect of this Act provided relief to the existing tenants and the rights accrued to tenants accordingly. He also amended the rules of felling trees in favour of farmers. Farmers were not allowed to fell trees from his land. This caused great difficulty. It was he who pressurized the state government to amend the rules and permit the farmer to fell trees from land of his ownership for his own use.

Panchayat-Raj and cooperative movement

The first popular government in Rajasthan was formed in 1949 under the leadership of Hiralal Shastri. Chaudhari Kumbharam Arya was made home minister in it. A new government was formed in 1951 under the leadership of Jaynarayan Vyas. He was made minister in this ministry also. Later on in Mohanlal Sukharia government in 1954 and in 1964 also he was twice minister. He formed Panchayat Raj Federation of which he was chairman from 1957-1958. He is the founder member of Panchayat Raj in Rajasthan. The rules of Panchayat Raj of Rajasthan are considered to be ideal ones in the country. He was member of Rajya Sabha from 1960-1964. In 1966 he resigned from the Congress government and formed a new political party “Janata Party”. In 1968 he was elected to Rajya Sabha and was member of Rajya Sabha from 1968-74. He was Member of Parliament elected from Sikar (1980-84) from Lokdal Party.

Chaudhari Kumbharam Arya formed Kisan Union in the interest of farmers in 1974. He believed that the key to success of rural development was in Panchayati Raj and Cooperative movement. He was founder of cooperative movement in Rajasthan. He was Chairman of Rajasthan Apex Cooperative bank. He was Chairman of Rajasthan Marketing Federation “RAJFED”. He was Chairman of Rajasthan Cooperative Federation. His role in cooperative movement in Rajasthan was unparallel.

Radical thinker

Chaudhari Kumbharam Arya was a great social reformer and a radical thinker. His ideology was not based on traditions. He was strong follower of Arya Samaj. He tried all his life to remove social evils from the society. He opposed untouchability. His butler was a Harijan by caste. His bodyguard was a Rajput. He arranged marriage of his Rajput bodyguard with a Muslim woman after adopting her as a sister. He was author of two books namely “Kisan Union Kyon” and “Varg Chetana”. He started a weekly magazine “Kisan” in Hindi in 1978. He started number of schools and hostels for girls in Bikaner region. He served for about 50 years in various capacities starting from Lok Parishad, National Congress, Janata Party, Bhartiy Krantidal, Bhartiy Lokdal and Janata Party with the interest of a common man in mind.
He died on 26th October 1995.

Dear Parvinder,

I welcome your comments on my note for Ch. Ajit singh I do respect him, but on other hand
I think he was not able to deliver,Even in case of helping jats(number is very less in compare to JAT population of
Western UP).Jat Youths living in villages do not have jobs and money due to what they are getting involved in crimes.

// "we taking here about the great Jats who have made the name for themselves "

He is not famous because of himself or his work but he fetches that name from the Great CH. Charan Singh jee.

This is my opinion and can differ from person to person.

While others go tom-tomming around town about Hollywood assignments that never seem to materialise, Parvin Dabas has quietly made the crossover to American shores.

After his critically acclaimed performance in Monsoon Wedding, the affable actor went on to play the lead opposite Emily Hamilton in Memsahib by the makers of Monsters Ball starring Halle Berry. He has now become the only Indian to be signed on for a four-hour long American mini series. He will begin shooting for the series in Jaipur later this month.

When asked for more details about his latest assignment, Parvin says he has been asked by producers not to talk to the press at this stage.

I whole heartedly agree!

there are people who set an example and there are others who are known for something --- could be anything!!

great are those who do something good for the society as a whole rather than only for themselves.

the point is to appreciate the DIFFERENCE!!


There is differenece between being famous and being well known. I am not sure if all the nemes mentioned by members fall in the catagory of famous. Getting elected as MP or making it to the post of Principal of a college does not make one famous. If I am asked to pick up the names of famous Jats, I would pick up only the following ones;

1. Sir Chotu Ram
2. Ch Charan Singh
3. Maharaja Suraj Mal
4. Ch Devi Lal
5. Dara Singh
6. Col. Hoshyar Singh, PVC
7. Virendra Sehwag

Famous can be considered only those whom common men from all castes know and those who inspired others very significantly..

You are right in the sense that Bisnois are nothing but derived from jats. Only their ideology is different. We have common gotras as well. Bisnois also think that way. We need to bring famous people from Bisnois also.

Bhim Singh Dahiya was a historian and civil servant belonging to the Indian Revenue Service (IRS). He was born at village Sehri, District Sonipat in Haryana, India. He retired from Govt. service as Chief Commissioner of Income tax in 1998.

In 1982, he wrote the monumental book- “Jats the Ancient rulers”, published by Dahinam Publishers, Sonipat, Haryana. This book is a reconstruction of the History of Jats from time immemorial. His linkage of the clan names/ Gotras to the existence of the Jats in Central Asia, and Europe, put a stamp on the histiography of the Jat History, for the people who could not have access to the works in Hindi or Urdu.

He brought out to the layman reader, that Chandra Gupta Maurya, the Kushans, the second Guptas, and Harshvardhan were Jats. He showed how the G letter was a substitution for the J sound, as the J letter did not exist in the ancient Greek alphabet. The significance was in determining who the Guti were, whom the Chinese and Western and most Indian Historians know as the ‘Yueh Chi’, but are Jats, of whom Kushans were just one clan, not a people unto themselves.

In 1992, he brought out his next book- Rig Vedic Tribes and Aryans, published by Dahinam Publishers, Sonipat, Haryana. Here he demonstrated how over 80 Jat Goths, Gotras, clans could be traced back to the Rig Veda.

His third great work in the history is in the form of Book- History of Hindustan Vol. I, II, III. Dahinam Publishers, Sonipat, Haryana also published it.

Raja Mahendra Pratap (1886-1979) was a freedom fighter, journalist, writer and revolutionary social reformist of India. He was popularly known as Aryan Peshwa. He was born in Hindu princely family of state of Mursan in Aligarh Janpad of Uttar Pradesh on 1st December 1886. He was third son of Raja Ghansyam Singh. Raja Harnarayan Singh of Hathras adopted him as son. He was married to a Sikh family of Jind princely state of Haryana in 1902 while studying in college.

Education

Raja Mahendra Pratap got his education under British Headmasters and Muslim teachers all from Mohammedan Anglo Oriental College Aligarh founded by Sir Sayyed Ahmad Khan. With this background he shaped into a true representative of secular society. To bring India at par with European Countries, Raja Mahendra Pratap established a free indigenous technical institute, ‘Prem Mahavidyalaya’ in his palace at Vrindavan on May 24, 1909.

Freedom movement

Raja Mahendra Pratap was very much against social evils especially untouchability. To eliminate this evil he dined with a Tamata family of Almora in 1911 and Mehtar family of Agra in 1912. He was influenced by the speeches of Dada Bhai Noroji, Bal Gangadhar Tilak, Maharaja Varoda, and Vipin Chandra Pal. The speeches of these great leaders made him a patriot who turned Swadeshi. He started the movement to burn the foreign made clothes in his state.

He tried sincerely to liberate his motherland from British Raj. On 20th December 1914, at the age of 28, Raja Mahendra Pratap left India for European countries to liberate India from the clutches of the British colonial rule with outside support. On 1st December 1915, his 28th birthday, he established the first Provisional Government of India at Kabul in Afghanistan, during First World War. Anti-British forces supported his movement. Due to his revolutionary ideas he had good relation with Lenin. Lenin invited Raja Mahendra Pratap to Russia on its liberation and welcomed him. He had become a big menace for the foreign rule in India. The British Government of India declared a reward on his head, attached his entire estate and declared him a fugitive.
In Japan
He went to Japan in 1925. He published ‘World Federation Monthly Magazine’ in 1929. Raja Mahendra Pratap tried his best to utilize the world war situations to free India. During Second World War he stayed at Tokyo in Japan and continued his movement from ‘World Federation Centre’ to free India from British rule. He formed the Executive Board of India in Japan in 1940 during Second World War. At last the British government had to kneel to Raja Mahendra Pratap and he was permitted to come to India from Tokyo with respect.
Back to India
He returned to India after about 32 years by ‘the City of Paris’ Ship and landed at Madras on 9th August 1946. On reaching India he immediately rushed to Vardha to meet Mahatma Gandhi.

After independence also he continued his struggle for transfer of power to the common man. His vision was that the Panchayat Raj was the only tool, which will give the real power in the hands of people and will reduce corruption and beauraucratic hurdles. He was elected as Member of Parliament from 1957-1962. He was president of Indian Freedom Fighters’ Association. He was president of All India Jat Mahasabha also. He died on 29th April 1979.
Man of vision
Raja Mahendra Pratap was a man of grand vision, who devoted his entire life to the service of mankind. This life-long revolutionary wanted to bring radical changes in the society and world order. His idea of ‘World Federation’ was a revolutionary one where he treated entire world as a family. His view was that this idea would cut the expenditures on police and armed forces that can be used for the development of nations. Raja Mahendra Pratap was a dedicated journalist and a prolific writer who wrote a large number of books on varied topics.

hey guys/gals,

how can u forget about MahaRaja Surajmal?

Maharaja Suraj Mal was the ruler of Bharatpur in Rajasthan in India. He is known as “Plato” of Jat caste in India. He was described as the greatest warrior and the ablest statesman that the Jats have produced.

In the early 17th century, the peasant folk of Bharatpur were being terrorized and ill treated by the Mughals. At this point of time Churaman, a powerful Jat village headman rose against this tyranny but was defeated harshly by the Mughals. This did not remain for long, since the Jats once again came together under the leadership of Badan Singh, and controlled a vast expanse of territory. The Mughal emperor recognized him and the title of ‘Raja’ (king) was conferred upon him in 1724.He was responsible for conceiving and constructing the royal palace on the southern side of the garden, now called Purana Mahal or old palace.

Raja Badan Singh’s heir, Raja Surajmal, was the most famous of the Bharatpur rulers, ruling at a time of constant upheaval around him. Raja Surajmal used all his power and wealth to a good cause, and built numerous forts and palaces across his kingdom, one of them being the Lohagarh (iron) Fort, which was one of the strongest ever built in Indian history. The inaccessible Lohagarh fort could withstand repeated attacks of British forces led by Lord Lake in 1805 when they laid siege for over six weeks. Having lost over 3000 soldiers, the British forces had to retreat and strike a compromise with the
Raja Surajmal.

Maharaja Suraj Mal attacked Delhi on May 9,1753. He defeated Nawab of Delhi Ghazi-ud-din (second) on May10,1753 and captured Delhi. He was the only jat Raja, who captured Delhi from Mughals in Indian History.The Nawab of Delhi,in revenge of the defeat, instigated Marathas to attack Suraj Mal. The Marathas laid siege over the Kumher fort on January1,1954. Suraj Mal fought with bravery and gave strong resistance. Marathas could not conquer the Kumher fort. Marathas were defeated in the third battle of Panipat and a total of hundred thousand Maratha survivors while returning to south reached Suraj Mal’s territory sans arms, sans clothes and sans food. Maharaja Suraj Mal and Maharani Kishori received them with tender warmth and hospitality, giving free rations to every Maratha solder or camp follower. The wounded were taken care of till they were fit to travel. Thus , Maharaja Suraj Mal spent no less than three million rupees on their sick and wounded guests. This is an example of his strong nationallity and love for people.

Maharaja Suraj Mal is considered to be the bravest, able administrator and the most popular ruler of contemporary north India.

Maharaja Suraj Mal has been the greatest ruler who made them a formidable force and played a very important role in the Indian history during 19th century.

Maharaja Suraj Mal died on 25th December 1763 in war with Najib-ud-dola. At the time of his death Maharaja Suraj Mal’s Empire included Agra, Dhaulpur, Mainpuri, Hathras, Aligarh, Eta, Meerut, Rohtak, Faruqnagar, Mewat, Rewari, Gurgaon and Mathura in addition to the powerful Bharatpur state.

hey guys/gals,

how can u forget about MahaRaja Surajmal?

Maharaja Suraj Mal was the ruler of Bharatpur in Rajasthan in India. He is known as “Plato” of Jat caste in India. He was described as the greatest warrior and the ablest statesman that the Jats have produced.

In the early 17th century, the peasant folk of Bharatpur were being terrorized and ill treated by the Mughals. At this point of time Churaman, a powerful Jat village headman rose against this tyranny but was defeated harshly by the Mughals. This did not remain for long, since the Jats once again came together under the leadership of Badan Singh, and controlled a vast expanse of territory. The Mughal emperor recognized him and the title of ‘Raja’ (king) was conferred upon him in 1724.He was responsible for conceiving and constructing the royal palace on the southern side of the garden, now called Purana Mahal or old palace.

Raja Badan Singh’s heir, Raja Surajmal, was the most famous of the Bharatpur rulers, ruling at a time of constant upheaval around him. Raja Surajmal used all his power and wealth to a good cause, and built numerous forts and palaces across his kingdom, one of them being the Lohagarh (iron) Fort, which was one of the strongest ever built in Indian history. The inaccessible Lohagarh fort could withstand repeated attacks of British forces led by Lord Lake in 1805 when they laid siege for over six weeks. Having lost over 3000 soldiers, the British forces had to retreat and strike a compromise with the
Raja Surajmal.

Maharaja Suraj Mal attacked Delhi on May 9,1753. He defeated Nawab of Delhi Ghazi-ud-din (second) on May10,1753 and captured Delhi. He was the only jat Raja, who captured Delhi from Mughals in Indian History.The Nawab of Delhi,in revenge of the defeat, instigated Marathas to attack Suraj Mal. The Marathas laid siege over the Kumher fort on January1,1954. Suraj Mal fought with bravery and gave strong resistance. Marathas could not conquer the Kumher fort. Marathas were defeated in the third battle of Panipat and a total of hundred thousand Maratha survivors while returning to south reached Suraj Mal’s territory sans arms, sans clothes and sans food. Maharaja Suraj Mal and Maharani Kishori received them with tender warmth and hospitality, giving free rations to every Maratha solder or camp follower. The wounded were taken care of till they were fit to travel. Thus , Maharaja Suraj Mal spent no less than three million rupees on their sick and wounded guests. This is an example of his strong nationallity and love for people.

Maharaja Suraj Mal is considered to be the bravest, able administrator and the most popular ruler of contemporary north India.

Maharaja Suraj Mal has been the greatest ruler who made them a formidable force and played a very important role in the Indian history during 19th century.

Maharaja Suraj Mal died on 25th December 1763 in war with Najib-ud-dola. At the time of his death Maharaja Suraj Mal’s Empire included Agra, Dhaulpur, Mainpuri, Hathras, Aligarh, Eta, Meerut, Rohtak, Faruqnagar, Mewat, Rewari, Gurgaon and Mathura in addition to the powerful Bharatpur state. He was succeeded to the throne by his son, Jawahar Singh.

My friend a slight mistake in your writing.

"Maharaja Suraj Mal died on 25th December 1763 in war with Najib-ud-dola"

But you said previously -

"The inaccessible Lohagarh fort could withstand repeated attacks of British forces led by Lord Lake in 1805 when they laid siege for over six weeks. Having lost over 3000 soldiers, the British forces had to retreat and strike a compromise with the Raja Surajmal."

Now if surajmal died in 1763 how could the firangi have made peace with him in 1805?
In Fact lake attacked lohagarh in 1803 and suffered defeat. One of the few defeats the firangis suffered in india.

Surajmal died when he rode with only a few warriors and was ambushed by the mughals and his head was cut off and taken to the mughal court. It was foolish of him to behave in such a cavalier manner going only with a few jat soldiers venturing into enemy territory. But indeed surajmal was perhaps the greatest jat leader.
I think surajmal clan name was sinsinwar. Someone correct me if I am wrong.

There is differenece between being famous and being well known. I am not sure if all the nemes mentioned by members fall in the catagory of famous. Getting elected as MP or making it to the post of Principal of a college does not make one famous. If I am asked to pick up the names of famous Jats, I would pick up only the following ones;

1. Sir Chotu Ram
2. Ch Charan Singh
3. Maharaja Suraj Mal
4. Ch Devi Lal
5. Dara Singh
6. Col. Hoshyar Singh, PVC
7. Virendra Sehwag

Famous can be considered only those whom common men from all castes know and those who inspired others very significantly..

Rajendra

I agree with you Rajendra Ji, but I am surprised how can one forget Brig. Hoshiyar Singh, MVC, the hero of 62 War. I remember this name as a child. It was my good luck that I got commissioned into the same battalion as Brig Hoshiyar Singh, MVC and further more commanded the same battalion. It is a great and life time honour to share the same board with Brig. Hoshiyar Singh MVC where the names of all the Commanding Officers are displayed.

Maharaja Bhim Singh Rana (1707-1756) was the most powerful ruler of princely state Gohad in northwestern Madhya Pradesh, India. According to Cunningham and William Cook, Bamraulia gotra jats from village Bamrauli (near Agra) in 1505 founded the city Gohad near Gwalior. Singhandev was the founder of Gohad state. Later it developed into an important Jat State. The Jat rulers of Gohad were awarded the title of Rana.

Maharaja Bhim Singh Rana played an important role in keeping a power balance in Malwa. Delhi Mughal ruler sent Jay Singh of Jaipur as satrap of Malwa in 1729. Malharrao Holkar, Udaji Panwar and Kanthaji Panwar encountered Jay Singh in Mandavgarh fort. Jay Singh succeeded in defeating Marathas with the help of Maharaja Suraj Mal of Bharatpur state. Maharaja Bhim Singh Rana helped Suraj Mal in this mission. This alliance made them the enemies of Marathas. Maharaja Bhim Singh Rana increased his powers and was planning to expand his territories. He marched to Malwa in 1736 but came back and targeted the Gwalior Fort. Marathas were also in race to win the Gwalior Fort. The weak and easy-going Mughal satrap Alikhan, looking to the power of Jats, surrendered the fort to Maharaja Bhim Singh Rana. Meanwhile there was a severe fight between Marathas and Jats to win the Gwalior Fort but Jats won and the Gwalior fort came under Jats. Maharaja Bhim Singh Rana occupied the Gwalior fort from 1740-1756.

In 1756 Marathas attacked the Gwalior Fort under the leadership of Mahadji Sheetole, Yammaji Rahalkar and Motiram Bani with a huge army. Maharaja Bhim Singh Rana was wounded and died in war on Chaitra sudi nawami (Ram nawami) in 1756. Maharaja Bhim Singh had constructed a historical monument Bhimtal in 1754 on the Gwalior fort. His successor Maharaja Chhatra Singh constructed a grand Chhatri near Bhimtal in memory of Maharaja Bhim Singh on the Gwalior Fort. Jat Samaj Kalyan Parishad Gwalior organizes a fair on Gwalior fort on Ram Navami every year in honour of Maharaja Bhim Singh Rana.

Mr. Mann,

Why are you saying all this here, what is the purpose of your reply, why are you using such hedious language and using the words like "Delhi ke Jaaton Ki ....." do you think you are doing your community a favour by putting such hedious language spoken by anyone on this website. Cant you just ignore such BS, rather then taking it further.
And what do you know about villages of Delhi, and what goes on there. You talk about the mass-upliftment of the Jats, whereas I see you creating a gap between Jats of Delhi and others. Please refrain from such things, and do not try to inflict any sort of gap or divide in Jats, all Jats are same and equal.

Captain Bhagwan Singh (1916 – 1995) was a unique diplomat, a radical student leader, army officer, Indian Administrative Service officer, High Commissioner of India to Fiji and a devoted social worker.

Childhood

Captain Bhagwan Singh was born on 1 April 1916 in a Hindu Jat family of Chahar clan in village Jaingara of Kirawali Tehsil in Agra district of Uttar Pradesh in India. His father’s name was Bere Singh. Bere Singh was in Fiji colonial service. He left for Fiji immediately after the birth of Bhagwan Singh. In 1925, after 15 years of service in Fiji, his constant battles with the authorities and his worsening asthma persuaded his father Bere Singh to return to India on premature retirement. Bhagwan Singh could first see his father after almost nine years when he finally returned to India in 1925.

Education

He was admitted to Victoria High School and put in boarding in the Jat House in Agra. He did not understand English and could hardly read a few words. Under these circumstances he was compelled to find solace in the ‘Satyagrah’ movement. Later his father forced to join back the school and he was admitted to Government High School Agra. He did his High School from Government High School Agra in 1934.

After passing out from High School he joined Agra College. It was a turbulent time for the nation. Bhagwan Singh joined the mass movements and enrolled himself in Arya Samaj, graduated into the Nagri Pracharini Sabha and was drafted into Hindi Journalism. He came in contact with Vijay Singh Pathik of Bijaulia Kisan Satyagrah fame in Mewar and started working for his weekly ‘Sanghars’, launched in collaboration with Acharya Narendra Dev. He was one of the signatories of the Uttar Pradesh Students Federation Charter. He joined the U.P. Socialist leadership, which formed the radical group of the national struggle for independence.

Bhagwan Singh completed his MA degree in History from Agra College, Agra in 1940. Later during the Second World War, at the behest of Sir Chhotu Ram, he accepted King’s commission in the army and became second lieutenant. In 1943 he was promoted as Captain and since then he was known as Captain Bhagwan Singh through out his life.

Joined Indian Administrative Service

Subsequent to his selection in the war-reserved vacancies in the I.C.S. he was posted as Assistant Magistrate, Allahabad, in 1945. He was town Rationing officer Prayag. Later he was appointed group-testing officer of Federal Public Service Commission Board. He was the first Jat Indian Administrative Service officer.

As a civil servant he got various assignments as under:
1948: Collector Bulandshahr
1950: Deputy Commissioner Raibareli
1953: Chairman Central Tractor Organization, Delhi
1957: Joint Secretary, Rehabilitation Ministry, Branch Secretariat, Calcutta
1959: Managing Director, Jammu and Kashmir Minerals Ltd., In Industrial Management Pool.
1964: Commissioner Municipal Corporation, Delhi
1965: Chairman Indian Tea Board Calcutta
1971 - 1976: High Commissioner of India to Fiji, Tonga, Nauru and other South Pacific countries.

High Commissioner of India to Fiji

In 1971, Captain Bhagwan Singh was Additional Secretary in Government of India’s the then Foreign Trade Ministry, was posted to Suva in Fiji as High Commissioner. Captain Bhagwan Singh was also accredited to the other South Pacific island countries. While his posting created a considerable stir at home, it was also a significant event in the history of Pacific region. It created different reactions in different fields. The Hindi media welcomed it. But a group of IAS officers thought that it was cowardice on his part to runaway to the Foreign Ministry to avoid confrontation with his minister Lalit Narayan Mishra with whom he was not pooling well. The Indian Foreign Service on the other hand, saw in it an intrusion into their well fortified preserve at the high levels of High Commissioner and Additional Secretary.

In his five years stay in Suva, Captain Bhagwan Singh became a part of folklore of the Pacific. But behind his immense popularity and success, lay another story which made him very special in the eyes of the ordinary people as well as the leaders of this disparate community of nations.


Even before Captain Bhagwan Singh arrived in the Pacific, a legend had grown around his name. His grandfather and grandmother were amongst the first group of Indian indentured labours to arrive in Fiji. His father, Bere Singh, was born there and after receiving his education in India went back to serve in Fiji for 25 years. He was a symbol of pride not only to the Indians of Fiji whose forefathers had come as indentured labourers, but also to the people of different Pacific nations who were themselves emerging as free citizens of independent nations. The grandson of an indentured ‘coolie’, Ram Chander, had now returned to Fiji as India’s High Commissioner.

For five crucial years, 1971 – 1976, Captain Bhagwan Singh carried the name of India to almost every village of Fiji, and adjoining islands of South Pacific. In one of the last areas to emerge from western colonial rule, Captain Bhagwan Singh’s unorthodox blend of quit diplomacy and high visibility in public relations, and his own flair to win friends and influence people, made him win the hearts of Pacific Islanders for his country.

The Prime Minister, Mrs. Indira Gandhi, appreciated his role in cementing the relationship between the two major ethnic groups of Fiji. As a bonus, she granted him unprecedented awards of two extensions in the service of Fiji, which was unpalatable to his colleagues in the Indian Foreign Service. This enabled him to act as the Dean of the growing diplomatic corps in Fiji.

Social Services

Captain Bhagwan Singh retired from Indian Administrative Service in 1976 and settled at Delhi. Even after retirement he was very active in social service. He was Executive Director of ‘Shri Ram Fibres Ltd.’ for seven years. He was very busy in social service as Chairman of ‘Kusht Niwaran Sangh’, ‘International Cooperative Council, India’, ‘College of Arts Delhi Advisory Committee’, ‘Summerfield Public School Executive Committee’, ‘Raja Mahendra Pratap Trust Vrindavan’. He was Administrator Vedic College Baraut and Vice Chairman of Maharaja Suraj Mal Institute, Delhi.

Bhagwan Singh was President of All India Jat Mahasabha where he did a wonderful work of awakening the Jats by publishing and distributing lot of literature about great persons.

As author

Bhagwan Singh was a good reader and a writer also. He has written a number of books and articles. He has written historical articles on Veervar Gokula, Amar Shahid Chaudhari Shahmal, Raja Mahendra Pratap etc. The important books written by him are:
1. Ratangarbha, Bharat Bhumi
2. Indian Tea
3. Fiji
4. My Fathers Land Fiji
5. Ujale apani yadon ke
6. Safal Prashasak Govind ballabh pant
7.
About his family
Bhagwan Singh was married in 1934, while he was in high School, at an early age of 18 years to Shantaji. Captain Bhagwan Singh had one son Ajay Singh who is an Indian politician, formerly Central Railway Minister. He had three daughters namely Abha, Vibha and Shubha.

Captain Bhagwan Singh died on 16 July 1995 at his Delhi residence.

9.HANUMAAN BAJRANG BALI was also JAT
Because
HANU+MAAN(Hanu his name,MAAN his Gotra,ALL MAAN in PAnjab r JAT)

Jagroop Sheokand(Narwana)

8. This is most outrageous claim. Please refrain from posting such absurd claims.
9. No, Hanumaan was not Jat. Again this is very absurd claim.

I dont understand why you people wants to live in fantasy world. I see its a general tendency of Jats to count everyone as Jat. I hope we think before posting and try to be little more mature, shall we?

Captain Bhagwan Singh (1916 – 1995) was a unique diplomat, a radical student leader, army officer, Indian Administrative Service officer, High Commissioner of India to Fiji and a devoted social worker.

Childhood

Captain Bhagwan Singh was born on 1 April 1916 in a Hindu Jat family of Chahar clan in village Jaingara of Kirawali Tehsil in Agra district of Uttar Pradesh in India. His father’s name was Bere Singh. Bere Singh was in Fiji colonial service. He left for Fiji immediately after the birth of Bhagwan Singh. In 1925, after 15 years of service in Fiji, his constant battles with the authorities and his worsening asthma persuaded his father Bere Singh to return to India on premature retirement. Bhagwan Singh could first see his father after almost nine years when he finally returned to India in 1925.

Education

He was admitted to Victoria High School and put in boarding in the Jat House in Agra. He did not understand English and could hardly read a few words. Under these circumstances he was compelled to find solace in the ‘Satyagrah’ movement. Later his father forced to join back the school and he was admitted to Government High School Agra. He did his High School from Government High School Agra in 1934.

After passing out from High School he joined Agra College. It was a turbulent time for the nation. Bhagwan Singh joined the mass movements and enrolled himself in Arya Samaj, graduated into the Nagri Pracharini Sabha and was drafted into Hindi Journalism. He came in contact with Vijay Singh Pathik of Bijaulia Kisan Satyagrah fame in Mewar and started working for his weekly ‘Sanghars’, launched in collaboration with Acharya Narendra Dev. He was one of the signatories of the Uttar Pradesh Students Federation Charter. He joined the U.P. Socialist leadership, which formed the radical group of the national struggle for independence.

Bhagwan Singh completed his MA degree in History from Agra College, Agra in 1940. Later during the Second World War, at the behest of Sir Chhotu Ram, he accepted King’s commission in the army and became second lieutenant. In 1943 he was promoted as Captain and since then he was known as Captain Bhagwan Singh through out his life.

Joined Indian Administrative Service

Subsequent to his selection in the war-reserved vacancies in the I.C.S. he was posted as Assistant Magistrate, Allahabad, in 1945. He was town Rationing officer Prayag. Later he was appointed group-testing officer of Federal Public Service Commission Board. He was the first Jat Indian Administrative Service officer.

As a civil servant he got various assignments as under:
1948: Collector Bulandshahr
1950: Deputy Commissioner Raibareli
1953: Chairman Central Tractor Organization, Delhi
1957: Joint Secretary, Rehabilitation Ministry, Branch Secretariat, Calcutta
1959: Managing Director, Jammu and Kashmir Minerals Ltd., In Industrial Management Pool.
1964: Commissioner Municipal Corporation, Delhi
1965: Chairman Indian Tea Board Calcutta
1971 - 1976: High Commissioner of India to Fiji, Tonga, Nauru and other South Pacific countries.

High Commissioner of India to Fiji

In 1971, Captain Bhagwan Singh was Additional Secretary in Government of India’s the then Foreign Trade Ministry, was posted to Suva in Fiji as High Commissioner. Captain Bhagwan Singh was also accredited to the other South Pacific island countries. While his posting created a considerable stir at home, it was also a significant event in the history of Pacific region. It created different reactions in different fields. The Hindi media welcomed it. But a group of IAS officers thought that it was cowardice on his part to runaway to the Foreign Ministry to avoid confrontation with his minister Lalit Narayan Mishra with whom he was not pooling well. The Indian Foreign Service on the other hand, saw in it an intrusion into their well fortified preserve at the high levels of High Commissioner and Additional Secretary.

In his five years stay in Suva, Captain Bhagwan Singh became a part of folklore of the Pacific. But behind his immense popularity and success, lay another story which made him very special in the eyes of the ordinary people as well as the leaders of this disparate community of nations.


Even before Captain Bhagwan Singh arrived in the Pacific, a legend had grown around his name. His grandfather and grandmother were amongst the first group of Indian indentured labours to arrive in Fiji. His father, Bere Singh, was born there and after receiving his education in India went back to serve in Fiji for 25 years. He was a symbol of pride not only to the Indians of Fiji whose forefathers had come as indentured labourers, but also to the people of different Pacific nations who were themselves emerging as free citizens of independent nations. The grandson of an indentured ‘coolie’, Ram Chander, had now returned to Fiji as India’s High Commissioner.

For five crucial years, 1971 – 1976, Captain Bhagwan Singh carried the name of India to almost every village of Fiji, and adjoining islands of South Pacific. In one of the last areas to emerge from western colonial rule, Captain Bhagwan Singh’s unorthodox blend of quit diplomacy and high visibility in public relations, and his own flair to win friends and influence people, made him win the hearts of Pacific Islanders for his country.

The Prime Minister, Mrs. Indira Gandhi, appreciated his role in cementing the relationship between the two major ethnic groups of Fiji. As a bonus, she granted him unprecedented awards of two extensions in the service of Fiji, which was unpalatable to his colleagues in the Indian Foreign Service. This enabled him to act as the Dean of the growing diplomatic corps in Fiji.

Social Services

Captain Bhagwan Singh retired from Indian Administrative Service in 1976 and settled at Delhi. Even after retirement he was very active in social service. He was Executive Director of ‘Shri Ram Fibres Ltd.’ for seven years. He was very busy in social service as Chairman of ‘Kusht Niwaran Sangh’, ‘International Cooperative Council, India’, ‘College of Arts Delhi Advisory Committee’, ‘Summerfield Public School Executive Committee’, ‘Raja Mahendra Pratap Trust Vrindavan’. He was Administrator Vedic College Baraut and Vice Chairman of Maharaja Suraj Mal Institute, Delhi.

Bhagwan Singh was President of All India Jat Mahasabha where he did a wonderful work of awakening the Jats by publishing and distributing lot of literature about great persons.

As author

Bhagwan Singh was a good reader and a writer also. He has written a number of books and articles. He has written historical articles on Veervar Gokula, Amar Shahid Chaudhari Shahmal, Raja Mahendra Pratap etc. The important books written by him are:
1. Ratangarbha, Bharat Bhumi
2. Indian Tea
3. Fiji
4. My Fathers Land Fiji
5. Ujale apani yadon ke
6. Safal Prashasak Govind ballabh pant
7.
About his family
Bhagwan Singh was married in 1934, while he was in high School, at an early age of 18 years to Shantaji. Captain Bhagwan Singh had one son Ajay Singh who is an Indian politician, formerly Central Railway Minister. He had three daughters namely Abha, Vibha and Shubha.

Captain Bhagwan Singh died on 16 July 1995 at his Delhi residence.

There is differenece between being famous and being well known. I am not sure if all the nemes mentioned by members fall in the catagory of famous. Getting elected as MP or making it to the post of Principal of a college does not make one famous. If I am asked to pick up the names of famous Jats, I would pick up only the following ones;

1. Sir Chotu Ram
2. Ch Charan Singh
3. Maharaja Suraj Mal
4. Ch Devi Lal
5. Dara Singh
6. Col. Hoshyar Singh, PVC
7. Virendra Sehwag

Famous can be considered only those whom common men from all castes know and those who inspired others very significantly..

Dear Sunil


Try not to be so hard.


Burdak ji is providing a very valuable service and is doing a wonderful job.

Jats are taught they have no history or culture. Our kids are taught that Jats are good for nothing bandits and ruffians. They are also taught they are not capable of higher learning, and the only economic opportunities for them are those opf Sipahis, security guards, and now labourers, Mazdoors, on daily wage.

Other groups have usurped that Jat contribution to learning, academics, and society.

If we do not change this picture, and encourage our kids to fight back, our community is going to fall further and further behind.

One purpose of this section, and the Yahoo Jathistory group is to bring to the attention of our community, that the Jats have a rich culture and history.

The people he is writing about are role models, for the community, especially our younger generation who do not have any knowledge of Jats who have made significant achievements or made significant contributions.

It is important to our younger generation to know that many Jats are very successful.

It is important to know they are political leaders, Principals of Schools and colleges, and IITs and IIMs, Business people, IT specialists , lawyers, doctors, accountants- all fields that Jats were trained to think were fields, they could never achieve success in.
.

Our Jat kids need to learn that if they persevere they too can emulate the Role models that exist, and that they can be successful- by getting good academic results, and keeping in mind they should contribute, and help the less well off in the Jat community

Famous Jats may be wrong term

Let us not quibble a bout small details

Role models for Jats may be a better term.

Perhaps the Administration can change the Title of the thread.

The thread is valuable, and let us all thank Burdak Sahib, and the other contributors for posting examples of these role models, and their life histories, so that can act as an inspiration for our community.


Let us see many more such posts

Ravi,
I am not agreeing with you either. I do not think there is any logic of Jat history!
First we should have good knowledge of ‘Indian History’.

And I do not want any corrupted political leader as a ‘Role model’.

Burdakji,

Please don't get discrouged by stray remarks of some individuals. You are doing a great service to the community. I agree with Narender bhai when he says that your efforts in bringing out info about our jat leaders from MP is praise worthy.

Mr.Sunil your member id should be sunil-420 and not sunil20. A genuine Jat member would't question the validity of knowing our history. Please refrain from making such comments in future.

Dear Sunil

Please do not take offence

Most of the History of India is the History of the Jats

Could I suggest you go through the archives here, and on the Jathistory group before you respond ?


URL is:

http://groups.yahoo.com/group/JatHistory/

For the files section, you need to be a member. You and everyone else are welcome to join.

I suspect you will change your mind, if you spend a few hours reading the material

Ravi,
History of india is not histroy of Jat..please do not make your own Histroy.. sorry for so rude!
I was so rude because many of jats in that lists are not famous and deinitely not role models either.
Its very true Ch. Chotu Ram is famous, great man and role models as well..same is for Ch. Charan singh
But if will add CHautala and his sons name with Chotu ram -than its insult for these great ppls.
burdak ji provided biblography of Kamal Patel, BJP leader..do u think kamal is role models? or famous?
I feel its insult for our great jats leader with lists of these BJP/Congress 'chuate bhai nati'
And definitely I will not accpet this. I hope you understand my concern.

Age never make ppls more intelligent.

Dear Sunil

I am perfectly happy to debate the proposition with you or anyone else.

Our clear purpose on the Yahoo Jathistory forum, is to educate Jats and non Jats( specially the latter) about Jat History, and restore to the Jats what belongs to them.

We deal with sceptics and nay sayers, continually.None have been able to escape the facts, once they are shown to them.

As for Jat -Indian history, I had suggested you read the posts here and in the Yahoo Jathistory group.

Jat history is also somewhat broader than Indian History.

May I presume you have gone through the archives?

Would you like to start a separate thread?

You are welcome to do so here or on the yahoo Jathistory forum, wherever you feel more comfortable

Best regards

Kamal Patel, whoever he is is a political leader

He has achieved being elected.

To achieve something , a community has to throw up political leaders, for without political leadership, the community interest will be left behind.

Patel in this competetive environment has achieved success.

Besides who says he is corrupt, please provide the evidence!

If you cannot , then please do not slander him.

Kamal Patel is a young and dynamic leader. He has been winning election in continuous three elections, both in congress regime and in BJP government. A corrupt politician cannot stand before the public. He became a cabinet minister in this hard and cutthroat competition. That too in a state where population of Jats is nominal. It is not like UP, Haryana, Rajasthan where only Jat will be elected. So you have to give credit to such a leader. All leaders are not corrupt. He has done works to his achievement in his area. He is not related to me nor he is in my street. I am 800 km away from Kamal Patel. This leader has struggled very much against corrupt officers. How can one give a sweeping statement about every body? A famous man has not been defined any where but we assume that a sizable population knows him and his achievements. If we do not write for our Jat brothers whom do you expect to write for us???

Have you written any book?

I can debate with only –who did some contribution for jats society and history (definitely not cut and paste from website)

I may also add, that the prime objective of our Yahoo Jathistory group, and mine, has been to to educate Jats and non Jats in their History and Culture.


Primarily by bringing to the fore, aspects of the history of the Jats, which are not taught in Indian and non Indian history books.

Another key objective has been to remove the negative stereotypes that Indian Historians have been propogating about the Jats.

By putting forth the Jat history, debate and discussion, we are meeting increasing success, and people who were at one time happily putting forth unsubstantiated negative material, are now backtracking.

This can only be good for our community and for our younger generation, and their generations to come.

So far so good.

Then they start raising questions about the efforts and academics of our senior respected members without seeing any of their posts or visiting those sites.

Well as far as i know fame is of two types, either good or it is bad. Nathuram godse is as famous as Mahatma Gandhi, or infamous as most would argue. So the point here is what yardstcik one uses to define fame, is it morally uprightedness( which itself has ever changing face) or money or power or some thing else as per beholder's mind matrix. Digging deeper into submatters of the later, it is a very very tight rope one is walking and even Mahatma Gandhi ji has been termed a traitor but when u look at overall picture in good faith and intentions the poor guy gave us more then what we deserved(going by the scale of mess and corruption we indulged in after indepedence).

To cut a long story short all this is debatable and nobody is right or wrong and it is important to respect everybodies view arriving at the measuring tools to be used to describe famous people.

To me, when u say famous(good) jats, are the one who has done good to the jat community as such and mahima choudahry and politicians who have done nothing for the cummunity do not figure in that. Well if u say they have done well for themselves then mallika and pamela bordes would top the list.

Jaat Bhaiyo Ram Ram,

I am new to this site and it is really an appreciable effort by u all, our great community needs to be brought together and we must work hand in hand for our development. I am in the army and I have observed that we lack the attitude of helping each other which is prominent in communities like sikhs and bengalis.

Most important is that many of us consider talking in haryanvi/ jat lingo as a sign of illetracy or backwardness which needs to be changed. We must talk in our language that may be haryanvi/ rajasthani/ or the UP dialects and must motivate our children to do the same, our ladies who are mothers can contribute a lot towards this aspect by teaching this to our kids. We must talk in our language atleast within our home and our society.


A great site and i will continue contributing here, we are so many in army however hardly anyone knows aout this site very soon u will find more Jats on this site.


Always say with pride I am JAT

Kushal Pal Singh or KP Singh is the second among the top ten richest Indians according to the latest London ‘Sunday Times’ rich list. He has an estimated wealth of about Rs 100,000/- crores. He is the Chairman of Delhi Land and Finance Ltd (DLF) Co.

He was born in a Hindu Jat Zamindar family in Bulandshahr of Uttar Pradesh, India.

The story of success of KP Singh is very interesting. He was officer in Indian army but left his job in 1960 and joined ‘American Universal Electric Company’, a joint undertaking of his family. After sometime he established a company for manufacture of industrial batteries – ‘Villard India’. In 1961 he joined the Company DLF, founded in 1946 by his father-in-law Chaudhary Raghavendra Singh. This company has built 21 townships in south Delhi.

Jujhar Singh Nehra (1664 – 1730) or Jhunjha was a Jat chieftain of Rajasthan in India who gave name to the Jhunjhunu town situated in Rajasthan. He was born in a Hindu Jat family of Nehra gotra in samvat 1721 (1664 AD). His father was a faujdar of Nawabs.

Jujhar Singh when became young was made the general of the army of Nawabs. He had a dream to establish Jat rule in India. He was planning to have a joint rebellion against the Muslim rule in India. He had heard the stories of rebellion by Jats of Bharatpur such as Gokula and Raja Ram. Meanwhile he came in contact with one Rajput Shardul Singh, who was an employee of the Nawabs. The Jats through Jujhar Singh and Rajputs through Sardul Singh agreed upon a proposal to fight united against Muslim rulers and if the Nawab were defeated Jujhar Singh would be appointed the Chieftain.

Jujhar Singh one day found the right opportunity and attacked Nawabs at Jhunjhunu and Narhar. He defeated the army of Nawab Sadulla Khan on Saturday, aghan sudi 8 samvat 1787 (1730 AD).

According to the book ‘Rankeshari Jujhar Singh’, written by Kunwar Panne Singh, Jujhar Singh was appointed as Chieftain after holding a darbar. After the ‘tilak’ ceremony of appointment as a sardar or chieftain, the Rajputs could not digest it and with conspiracy killed Jujhar Singh in 1730 AD at a lonely place. Jujhar Singh thus became a martyr for his community. The town Jhunjhunu in Rajasthan was named so after the memory of Jujhar Singh or Jhunjha.

Kushal Pal Singh or KP Singh is the second among the top ten richest Indians according to the latest London ‘Sunday Times’ rich list. He has an estimated wealth of about Rs 100,000/- crores. He is the Chairman of Delhi Land and Finance Ltd (DLF) Co.

He was born in a Hindu Jat Zamindar family in Bulandshahr of Uttar Pradesh, India.

The story of success of KP Singh is very interesting. He was officer in Indian army but left his job in 1960 and joined ‘American Universal Electric Company’, a joint undertaking of his family. After sometime he established a company for manufacture of industrial batteries – ‘Villard India’. In 1961 he joined the Company DLF, founded in 1946 by his father-in-law Chaudhary Raghavendra Singh. This company has built 21 townships in south Delhi.

Ranabai
Ranabai was a Jat warrior girl born on 1543 in the family of Chaudhari Jalam Singh of village Harnawa in Parwatsar pargana of Marwar. Jalam Singh was a Hindu Jat chieftain of Ghana gotra. Ranabai was a brahmcharini and a strong devotee of God. A subedar of Badsah Akbar was stationed near a pond at distance of 6 km from village Harnawa with a force of 500 horse-riders. He was a man of bad conduct. One day he invited Jalam Singh with a bad intention and pressurized him to marry his daughter Ranabai with him. Jalam Singh refused his offer and abused him. The muslim subedar arrested Jalam Singh and attacked Harnawa. When Ranabai learnt that muslim subedar had attacked Harnawa with a bad intention to marry her she took sword in her hands and attacked the muslim soldiers like a tigress. She attacked the muslim subedar and copped his head off. She also killed many of the soldiers. Looking to her bravery the rest of soldiers ran away. She thus got freed his father Jalam Singh. The story of the bravery of Ranabai spread in the entire marwar region.

Who is rich- Famous and Great Jat/Jatni
and what is yardstick to measure greatness

Every Jat/Jatni is great in his home and Farmhouse.
Richness is measure by big- kind heart.
Famous is by good deeds or Karma. A outstanding talent and achievement in any field.
Greatness by doing good deeds to Community- Humanity . selfless service to World.
We will find many great and famous people on this site.
l for example
Mr Ramsarup & Santosh Arya founder of Kalirawan Education project.
Ravi Chaudhry

Dr Ghasi Ram Verma
Dr Birbal Singh

All Jat historians like Swami Omanamd ji.

Laxman Burdak- doing great service to Jat history.

If you measure fame & greatness.

Ch - Chhaju Ram Lamba and His wife Laxmi Devi were more rich-famous and great by keeping Bhagat Singh In their safe house in Calcutta.
Godparent to Ch ChhotuRam- Done great service in Jat Education.
But Today every body saying Mallika Sehrawar/ Reena Lamba is more famous than his Great-grandfather Ch Chhaju Ram Lamba.

Every Martyr and freedom fighter is great
So was Major Mahinder Singh Hero of 1962 China war from village Dubaldhan- Majra
But every body know Pamila Borde- Chaudhry and not Major Mahinder Singh Kadiyan.
Great people are recognised by world.

So ur quotes seems to be wrong here. If u go for a comparison between Chazzuram lamba versus Mallika sehrawat & make a count , how many from this world know about Chazzuram Lamba ?...... If ppls are not able to recognise a person then it 's far away to pay regards for his/her..........

Problem is despite of the best efforts by some nonjats to find some difference between Hindi speaking jats and punjabi speaking jats they could find none except dialect that varies every 20 km.

So what they try to do they put one extra A between J and T but jats don't use this spelling for them and use JAT only.Any way Rana bhai if you could find some significant difference pls do tell us.

Hemant Lamba is the recipient of prestigious ‘Green Oskar’ award for his work on distribution of reliable and cheap solar devices in 12 Indian states. Lamba and his teammates successfully delivered affordable, reliable and renewable energy products (in the form of solar panels) in 12 states, benefiting about 80,000 people. The Ashden Trust of the Sainsbury’s trusts in Britain set up the awards in 2001. Each award comes with $50,000 towards improving the project. Lamba and his team have brought government, banks, non-governmental organisations and manufacturers together to deliver products that are relatively effective and affordable. With that 250 local people have been trained in maintaining the power supply through renewables. He is now working to make these projects more popular and to attract private enterprises to set up new networks and franchises to link all these elements.

From hundreds of miles around Delhi Heroic warriors came to the battlefield ready to sacrifice their lives. All the young men and women took up arms. Dharampal Dev a Jat warrior, who was 95 years old, played a great part in gathering together this army. He traveled day and night on horseback to encourage men and women and gather the army. His brother Karan Pal helped arrange money, grain, and clothing for the army. The choosing of the Supreme General, the deputy general and the other generals. In this endeavor of the SarvKhap, the hero warrior Jograj Singh Gujar was chosen Supreme General. He was of the Clan Khubar Parmar, and hailed from a village near Haridwar called Kunja. The general chosen from among the heroic maidens were

1) Rampiari Gujar,

2) Hardai Jat,

2) DeviKaur Rajput,

3) Chandro Brahmin, and

4) Ramdai Tyagi.

All of them took a vow to lay down their lives in defence of their nation. Two Deputy Generals were chosen -

1) Dhula Bhangi (Valmiki),

(2) Harbir Singh Gulia Jat,

Dhula Bhangi was a resident of the Village of Hansi, near Hissar. He was a strong and powerful brave warrior. The second deputy general was Harveer Singh Jat, of the Gulia Clan. He was from the village Badli, district Rohtak I Haryana. He was 22 years old. He weighed 53 Dharis (approx. 160 kilograms). He was strong and brave warrior. The names of the generals were

Some excerpts of Jograj Singh's speech"
Viroh (Heroes), reflect on the sermon given by Lord Krishna to Arjun in the Gita. For us the door to heaven (moksha) has been opened. That moksha, which the Rishi Munis achieve by doing Yoga, the hero warriors achieve by sacrificing their lives on the battlefield. Save the nation, that is- sacrifice yourselves, the world will honor you. You have chosen me leader. To my last breath I will not withdraw. I salute the Panchayat, and take oath that until my last breath I will defend the soil of Bharat. Our nation has been shaken by the crimes and attacks of Timur. Warriors arise and do not delay. Fight the enemy army and throw them out of the nation."

On hearing this speech a wave of heroism ran through the assembly. 80, 000 warriors and 40,000 maiden warriors kissed their swords and took an oath, ' O General, while we breathe we will obey your orders, and sacrifice our lives for our country'. The Troops. - The Panchayat Army, spread out from Delhi, to Meerut, Muzzafarnagar, Sahranpur, and Haridwar. On reaching these places they tangled with the armies of Timur, and using Guerilla warfare, they did not them sit still. The enemy army had to escape by the route of the hills and the enemy was chased upto Ambala, and expelled out from the land of Haryana.

The battle of Delhi
At the time that Timur was looting Delhi, and putting the population to the sword 20,000 warriors of the Panchayat army, made a surprise attack on the 52,000 strong army of Timur in the middle of the night, and killed 9,000 of them, and let their corpses be swept away in the river Yamuna. As soon as dawn came these heroic soldiers of the Panchayat returned to outside the city walls. The battle carried on like this for three days. Timur Lung got frustrated, left Delhi and advanced toward Meerut.

The battle of Meerut
Timur, with his numerous and powerful army, with much weaponry, advanced towards Meerut. In this land, Timur's army was given no space to breathe. The battles continued all through the day. Wherever the Army of Timur would stop for the night, the Panchayat army would attack, and uproot them. The heroic Devis (goddesses- women) would deliver food and war material to their soldiers wherever they were. The warrior maidens would attack and loot the supplies of the enemy. The 500 horsemen were doing their duty by keeping everyone together and bearing information. As supplies were not reaching them, the army of Timur started to go hungry. Whichever village came in its path would be destroyed. Becoming frustrated Timur advanced towards Haridwar.

The battle of Haridwar
Beyond Meerut, to Muzzafarnagar and Saharanpur, the Panchayat armies fought fiercely with Timur and did not let his army take hold (grip). The Supreme General, the Deputy Generals and the Generals were handling their armies well. The army of Timur reached Tuglakpur- Pathrigarh, which is 5 Kos south of Haridwar. In this land the army of the Panchayat fought three major battles with the army of Timur.

Harveer Singh Gulia attacked Timur
The Deputy Commander Harveer Singh Gulia, along with 25,000 warriors of the Panchayat army, made a fierce attack on a big group of Timur's horsemen, and a fierce battle ensued where arrows and spears were used (There over 2, 000 hill archers joined the Panchayat Army. One arrow pierced Timur's hand. Timur was in the army of horsemen. Harveer Singh Gulia charged ahead like a lion, and hit Timur on his chest with a spear, and he was about to fall under his horse, when his commander Khijra, saved him and separated him from the horse. (Timur eventually died from this wound when he reached Samarkhand). The spearmen and swordsmen of the enemy leapt on the Harveer Singh Gulia, and he fainted from the wounds he received and fell. At that very time, the Supreme Commander Jograj Singh Gujar, with 22,000 Mulls (warriors) attacked the enemy and killed 5000 horsemen. Jograj Singh himself with his own hands lifted the unconscious Harveerr Singh Gulia and brought him to the camp. But a few hours later, the hero warrior Harveer Singh achieved martyrdom.

Mahendra Singh Tikait, the BKU Chaudhary ('Headman') was born in 1935 at village Sisauli in Muzaffarnagar of Uttar Pradesh. Ch. Mahendra Singh Tiakait inherited the Chaudharyship of the Khap Baliyan at the age of eight when his father Ch.Chauhal Singh died in 1943.The Chaudharyship of the Baliyan khap had been vesting in his family for the last thirteen centuries. The chaudharyship of a khap panchayat is a hereditary position. The Chaudahry enjoys administrative, adjucative and executive powers over the khap villages. The chaudhary is held in high esteem and his decisions are binding on his people. At a panchayat meeting of the khap Baliyan held at Sisauli on May 12,1941, a resolution was passed which said : " We will work with our body, hear and soul under the leadership of our Chaudhary for the good of our Khap. Towards this end the Chaudhary of a khap has the right even to demand our lives." Thus the Chaudahry of a khap panchayat enjoys supreme powers.

After the death of former Prime Minsiter late Ch.Charan Singh in western U.P. he was called the second 'messiah' of kisans. On 17th October,1986 he formed a non-political orgarnisation named 'Bhartiya Kisan Union' to protect the interests of all the farmers of India whose are 80 percent of the population of the country. In this way he headed so many movements and as a result of these agitations,many times, he was arrested and sent to jail, yet he is on the way to protect the interest of all the kisans of India.

Jaspall Bhuttee nu pull gaye ji tussi. E sadda pnyaabb da putrr vi jutt da puttr ai gaya, like Gutasya Puttra of Ujjain. Though in Punjabi they pronounce Bheem as Peem (its BP variation like JG variation, but Bhuttis never changed it to Puttis. A solid Jat is he from Punjab Engineering College of Chandigarh. A Civil Engineer. His style is typical Jat Style. Where it looks as if dialougues of Haryanvi have been converted into punjabi.

Per is Bhutti ne koi Tau koni thyaya Haryane ka. Us ki acting to ye zabardast kar sakta hai. Vaise bhi eebb buddhya honn lagg rhya ya Tarmender/Dharmeder/Amitabh ki tarhyaa!

I'm sad to inform that he is no more. A dynamic personality. I read the cooments on his book " Jats the Ancient......."

"Jat is community only to serve and not to rule... But B s Dahiya says something else...... Mauryas, Kushanas, Guptas n even Harshavardhana was Jat..... Eyebows may be stretched... when we are putting Aryan, Hun, Kushan, Saka, Jat ......all together...."

He used 2 b invited in Parivar Parichay.
He was later given the title "Plato of Jats" by Surajmal Society.

"In any case the book is going to provide a hot tail to the researchers of Indian/World History", commented Indian Express on his book. It carried a picture of Sun God statue found from village Beri in Rohtak of 12-13th century AD.

However, no research was really carried out on his book by any scholar. B4 that I read R S Joon. At first sight it looked that Dahiyas work is an extension of Joon's work. But he came up with so many new startling facts like clans of Jats (Prarjoon etc) on Allahabad Pillar Inscription etc.

Rajendra Singh Lunayach (born 1955) is an Indian Industrialist in Alexandria ranking sixth wealthiest in Virginia along with his wife Neera Singh in 2006. Their Net worth being $1 billion. The couple, pioneers in the wireless industry, turned their investments into a billion-dollar fortune.

Childhood
Rajendra Singh comes from village Kairoo in Jhunjhunu district in Rajasthan, India. As a young boy Rajendra Singh used to draw water by hand for his family from a well in the village Kairoo. The remote village had no electricity, telephones or newspapers. Education was scarce. Rajendra Singh's father had been the first person in the 400-year-old village to attend high school. He did his education from Indian Institute of Technology, Delhi

Married with Neera Singh
Neera Singh (born 1959) is the daughter of an upper-middle-class college administrator. She did her education from Indian Institute of Technology, where she met Rajendra Singh in 1977. Neera stepped back from the business in the 1990s to raise the couple's two sons. One will attend the University of Pennsylvania in September. Neera manages the family's personal investment portfolio. With two teenage boys in high school, the couple doesn't want to travel and leave them home alone.

In United States
Rajendra Singh and Neera Singh came to the United States on scholarships as Indian immigrants. They started their work in Dallas in 1979 where Rajendra Singh was learning to squeeze bandwidth out of radio spectrum while working at Southern Methodist University. The couple continued their work when they moved to Kansas State University in Manhattan, Kan., where Rajendra Singh landed a $14,000-a-year teaching job in early 1981.

They parlayed $42 paid to a computer lab in Manhattan, Kan., in 1982 into a $1 billion fortune.

In US, they made up their minds in understanding of physics, electro-magnetics and software. The couple, who live nearby in Mount Vernon, were among the earliest innovators of the wireless industry. The young graduate students spent hours trying to figure how to make the airwaves work.
Working initially with paper and pencil, Rajendra Singh helped design some of the earliest cellular network applications for 12 of the top 30 U.S. markets. Rajendra Singh served as expert in AirTouch and PacTel Companies.

Lunayach Communications Consultants (LCC)
Using all of the money they had at the time — $1,000 — the Singhs in 1983 formed Lunayach Communications Consultants (LCC) International Inc., a wireless consulting firm.

They realized how crazy it was to do calculations by hand. The approach worked for one or two transmitter towers but was impractical for large, sophisticated systems. Neera developed a system of calculations to crunch numbers using an algorithm and sent the results to Wayne Schelle, an entrepreneur working to launch a cellular network in the Washington-Baltimore area, one of two approved licenses at the time. Schelle called the couple immediately, saying their calculations had saved the company at least $80,000 and months of work in deciding where to place cell towers. To entice them to Washington, Schelle offered a furnished apartment and a place to work.

Neera's algorithms and Raj's ideas revolutionized the fledgling industry and quickly led to more work for their firm. Rajendra Singh became one of the pioneers in the industry in network design and coverage and planning and system engineering, which made it possible for the industry to roll out more coverage and systems. The Singhs helped AirTouch design systems in 13 U.S. markets and 30 countries.

They purchased a computer and worked day and night six days a week. Neera crunched numbers; and because they couldn't afford larger disks, Raj changed the disks that filled quickly.

For some time they worked for other people who owned the networks or licenses necessary to build a system. Finally, they decided to branch out. With $25,000, a princely sum for them at the time, they launched APEX, a company that connected cell circuits to prevent mobile fraud. Four years later in 1990, they sold the business to Electronic Data Systems Corp. for $50million.

The Singhs began investing in other systems and were early partners in Nextel Communications. In 1990, they hired someone else to run day-to-day operations at LCC. Though no longer involved in the management of the company, they still own 18 percent of its shares. The couple also launched Telcom Ventures, the family's vehicle for investments. Almost 90 percent of their investments remain in cellular ventures, with the Singhs instrumental in starting cellular systems in many South American countries and in India. Other investments included co-founding Teligent, a high-speed Internet and telecom services business later sold to First Avenue Networks of Charlottesville, and Aether Technologies, a wireless technologies provider.
Social works
Rajendra Singh and Neera Singh support pet projects, primarily in education. They help fund programs for women in India as well as scholarships at the University of Maine, where Rajendra Singh studied, and Johns Hopkins University, where Rajendra Singh serves on the board of trustees. They have also given money to start the telecommunications program at Marymount College in Arlington.

Sathiyo,

I don’t think anything wrong in including among the list of famous jats people like Ch. Sajjan Kumar (MP –Outer Delhi). Shayad kuchh logo ko taklif hui hogi because of his alleged involvement in 1984 Riots. Kisi bhi conclusion par pahunchne se pahle hamein uski andruni bato pe bhi jana chahiye.

Lekin dosto ek baat sochne ki hai____in 1984 riots the allegations were put not only against Ch. Sajjan Kumar Ji , but also against the following if I am not wrong:-
# Vasant Sathe.
# Kamal Nath
# Jagdish Titler
# HKL Bhagat

Yahan ek baat dekhne ki hai ki___why only Ch. Sajjan Kumar was targeted and highlighted most out of all these guys. All except Sajjan Kumar are holding key positions and where as Sajjan Kumar has put all his efforts just only to get the congress ticket from the world’s largest constituency…..where he is extremely popular for his work towards upliftment of downtroden .He himself is from very humble background. His margin of victory simply a proof of his popularity. Sajjan Kumar was very close to Sanjay Gandhi and Indira Gandhi and that was the main reason for implicating him in the Sikh riots where he has not done anything wrong or exceptionally extra involvement. People were just scared of his popularity and his proximity to Gandhi Family.


Jai Ram Ji Ki.

Narender

Sajjan kumar tey kameen, chaaplus aur girra hua toh chautala bhi konya...

I seriously doubt if he is a jat.

Maybe he is popular in congress as he is used to bootlicking, but not among the jats as far as i know.

Laxman ji,

First of all i would like to congratulate Dr.Urushi Chaudhry for becoming first Jat lady from Rajasthan chosen for IAS! That too with very good rank.

Pradeep Sindhu, Juniper Networks

Rajiv Sinshu, CEO i2 Tecnologies.

Raj Singh Sirohi,

Dr. Giri Raj Sigh Sirohi.....http://www.geocities.com/amitasirohi
