    Mansukh Ranwa is the first author who has first time published history of freedom fighter Lothoo in the form of a book- “Amar Shaheed Lothoo Jat’’ (अमर शहीद लोटू जाट) in Hindi in year 2000. Otherwise it was only through the Bhopas that folk songs of Lothoo were sung in Rajasthan. Most of the facts about Lothoo were known to only local public from the ‘phad’, which Bhopa community read loudly in public places as folk songs with the story depicted on canvas. The role of Lothoo has not been properly assessed in the history of first freedom movement of India. The efforts of Mansukh Ranwa in writing a research book on such a great freedom fighter, whose history and achievements were lost in the dark, are worth praising. Dr Gyan Prakash Pilania has written forward of this book.

    सत्यवादी और सदाचारी तेजाजी

    तेजाजी ने जाटों की गायों को डाकुओं से मुक्त करवाने में अपने प्राण दांव पर लगा दिये थे। वे खड़नाल गाँव के निवासी थे। भादो शुक्ला दशमी को तेजाजी का पूजन होता है। तेजाजी का राजस्थान के जाटों में महत्वपूर्ण स्थान है। तेजाजी सत्यवादी और दिये हुये वचन पर अटल थे। उन्होंने अपने आत्म - बलिदान तथा सदाचारी जीवन से अमरत्व प्राप्त किया था। उन्होंने अपने धार्मिक विचारों से जनसाधारण को सद्मार्ग पर चलने के लिए प्रेरित किया और जनसेवा के कारण निष्ठा अर्जित की। उन्होंने जनसाधारण के हृदय में हिन्दू धर्म के प्रति लुप्त विश्वास को पुन: जागृत किया। इस प्रकार तेजाजी ने अपने सद्कार्यों एवं प्रवचनों से जन - साधारण में नवचेतना जागृत की, लोगों की जात - पांत में आस्था कम हो गई।

    तेजाजी का जन्म

    तेजाजी के जन्म के बारे में मत है-

    जाट वीर धौलिया वंश गांव खरनाल के मांय।

    आज दिन सुभस भंसे बस्ती फूलां छाय।।

    शुभ दिन चौदस वार गुरु, शुक्ल माघ पहचान।

    सहस्र एक सौ तीस में प्रकटे अवतारी ज्ञान।।

    तेजाजी का हळसौतिया

    जेठ के महिने के अंत में तेज बारिश होगई। तेजाजी की माँ कहती है जा बेटा हळसौतिया तुम्हारे हाथ से कर-

    गाज्यौ-गाज्यौ जेठ'र आषाढ़ कँवर तेजा रॅ

    लगतो ही गाज्यौ रॅ सावण-भादवो

    सूतो-सूतो सुख भर नींद कँवर तेजा रॅ

    थारोड़ा साथिड़ा बीजॅं बाजरो।

    सूर्योदय से पहले ही तेजाजी बैल, हल, बीजणा, पिराणी लेकर खेत जाते हैं और स्यावड़ माता का नाम लेकर बाजरा बीजना शुरू किया -

    उठ्यो-उठ्यो पौर के तड़कॅ कुँवर तेजा रॅ

    माथॅ तो बांध्यो हो धौळो पोतियो

    हाथ लियो हळियो पिराणी कँवर तेजा रॅ

    बॅल्यां तो समदायर घर सूं नीसर्यो

    काँकड़ धरती जाय निवारी कुँवर तेजा रॅ

    स्यावड़ नॅ मनावॅ बेटो जाटको।

    भरी-भरी बीस हळायां कुँवर तेजा रॅ

    धोळी रॅ दुपहरी हळियो ढाबियो

    धोरां-धोरां जाय निवार्यो कुँवर तेजा रॅ

    बारह रॅ कोसां री बा'ई आवड़ी।।

    तेजाजी का भाभी से संवाद

    नियत समय के उपरांत तेजाजी की भाभी छाक (रोटियां) लेकरआई। तेजाजी बोले-

    बैल्या भूखा रात का बिना कलेवे तेज।

    भावज थासूं विनती कठै लगाई जेज।।

    देवर तेजाजी के गुस्से को भावज झेल नहीं पाई और काम से भी पीड़ित थी, उसने चिढने के लहजे में कहा-

    मण पिस्यो मण पोयो कँवर तेजा रॅ

    मण को रान्यो खाटो खीचड़ो।

    लीलण खातर दल्यो दाणों कँवर तेजा रॅ

    साथै तो ल्याई भातो निरणी।

    दौड़ी लारॅ की लारॅ आई कँवर तेजा रॅ

    म्हारा गीगा न छोड़ आई झूलै रोवतो।

    ऐहड़ा कांई भूख भूखा कँवर तेजा रॅ

    थारी तो परण्योड़ी बैठी बाप कॅ

    भाभी का जवाब तेजाजी के कले जे में चुभ गया। तेजाजी नें रास और पुराणी फैंकदी और ससुराल जाने की कसम खा बैठे-

    ऐ सम्हाळो थारी रास पुराणी भाभी म्हारा ओ

    अब म्हे तो प्रभात जास्यां सासरॅ

    हरिया-हरिया थे घास चरल्यो बैलां म्हारा ओ

    पाणिड़ो पीवो नॅ थे गैण तळाव रो।

    तेजाजी का माँ से संवाद

    खेत से तेजाजी सीधे घर आये। तेजाजी नें कहा-माँ मेरी शादी कहाँ और किसके साथ हुई। तेजाजी की माँ को खरनाल और पनेर की दुश्मनी याद आ गई पर अब बताने को मजबूर होकर माँ बोली-


    ब्याव होतां ही खाण्डा खड़कग्या बेटा बैर बढ़गो।

    थारां बाप कै हाथा सूं छोरी को मामों मरगो।

    थारो मामोसा परणाया पीळा-पोतड़ा।

    गढ़ पनेर पड़ॅ ससुराल कँवर तेजा रॅ

    रायमल जी री पेमल थारी गौरजां।

    उस समय के रिवाज के अनुसार तेजाजी का विवाह उनके ताऊ बक्सारामजी ने तय किया। मामा ने शादी की मुहर लगाई। तेजाजी का विवाह रायमल की बेटी के साथ पीले पोतड़ों में होना बताया।

    बहिन राजल को ससुराल से लाना

    तेजाजी की भाभी ने कहा कि ससुराल जाने से पहले बहिन राजल को लाओ-

    पहली थारी बैनड़ नॅ ल्यावो थे कंवर तेजा रॅ।

    पाछै तो सिधारो थारॅ सासरॅ।।

    उधर तेजा की बहिन राजल को भाई के आने के सगुन होने लगे वह अपनी ननद से बोली-

    डांई-डांई आँख फरुखे नणदल बाई ये

    डांवों तो बोल्यो है कंवलो कागलो

    कॅ तो जामण जायो बीरो आसी बाई वो

    कॅ तो बाबो सा आणॅ आवसी

    बहिन के ससुराल में तेजाजी की खूब मनुहार हुई। रात्रि विश्राम के पश्चात सुबह तेजाजी बहिन के सास से बोले-

    बाईसा नॅ पिहरिये भेजो नी सास बाईरा

    मायड़ तो म्हानॅ लेबानॅ भेज्यो

    चार दिना की मिजमानी घणा दिनासूं आया

    राखी री पूनम नॅ पाछा भेजस्यां

    सीख जल्दी घणी देवो सगी म्हारा वो

    म्हानॅ तो तीज्यां पर जाणों सासरॅ

    भाई-बहिन रवाना होकर अपने गांव खरनाल पहुंचते हैं। सभी को चूरमा व पतासे बांटे जाते हैं।

    तेजल आयो गांव में ले बैनड नॅ साथ

    हरक बधायं बँट रही बड़े प्रेम के साथ

    तेजाजी का पनेर जाना

    तेजाजी अपनी मां से पनेर जाने की अनुमती मांगते हैं। वह मना करती है। तेजाजी के दृढ़ निश्चय के आगे मां की एक न चली। भाभी कहती है कि पंडित से शुभ मूहूर्त निकलवा कर ससुराल रवाना होना। पंडित शुभ मूहूर्त के लिये पतड़ा देख कर बताता है कि श्रावण व भादवा के महिने अशुभ हैं-

    मूहूर्त पतड़ां मैं कोनी कुंवर तेजा रॅ

    धोळी तो दिखॅ तेजा देवली

    सावण भादवा थारॅ भार कंवर तेजा रॅ

    पाछॅ तो जाज्यो सासरॅ

    पंडित की बात तेजाजी ने नहीं मानी। तेजाजी बोले मुझे तीज से पहले पनेर जाना है। शेर को कहीं जाने के लिए मूहूर्त की जरुरत नहीं पड़ती-

    गाड़ा भरद्यूं धान सूं रोकड़ रूपया भेंट

    तीजां पहल्यां पूगणों नगर पनेरा ठेठ

    सिंह नहीं मोहरत समझॅ जब चाहे जठै जाय

    तेजल नॅ बठै रुकणुं जद शहर पनेर आय

    लीलण पर पलाण मांड सूरज उगने से पहले तेजाजी रवाना हुये। मां ने कलेजे पर हाथ रखकर आशीर्वाद दिया-

    माता बोली हिवड़ॅ पर हाथ रख

    आशीष देवूं कुलदीपक म्हारारै

    बेगा तो ल्याज्यो पेमल गोरड़ी

    बरसात का मौसम था। रास्ते में कई नाले और बनास नदी पार की। रास्ते में बालू नाग मिला जिसे तेजाजी ने आग से बचाया। तेजाजी को नाग ने कहा-

    "शूरा तूने मेरी जिन्दगी बेकार कर दी। मुझे आग में जलने से रोककर तुमने अनर्थ किया है। मैं तुझे डसूंगा तभी मुझे मोक्ष मिलेगा।"

    कुंवर तेजाजी ने नाग से कहा-

    "नागराज! मैं मेरे ससुराल जा रहा हूँ। मेरी पेमल लम्बे समय से मेरा इन्तजार कर रही है। मैं उसे लेकर आऊंगा और शीघ्र ही बाम्बी पर आऊंगा, मुझे डस लेना।"

    कुंवर तेजाजी पत्नी को लेकर मरणासन्न अवस्था में भी वचन पूरा करने के लिये नागराज के पास आये। नागराज ने तेजाजी से पूछा कि ऐसी जगह बताओ जो घायल न हुई हो। तेजाजी की केवल जीभ ही बिना घायल के बची थी। नागराज ने तेजाजी को जीभ पर डस लिया।

    Why Tejaji is depicted as Rajput??

    Tejaji is alive in the Jats of Rajasthan through folk-songs from last ten centuries. From the folk-songs as given above and all other historical sources it is clear that Tejaji was born in Dhaulya gotra Jat family of Taharji in Kharnal village in Nagaur district of Rajasthan. He was married in Jhanjhar gotra Jat family of Rai Mal of Paner in present Ajmer district. He was the first recorded warrior and saint in Rajasthan, who fought against the social evils and worked for social reforms.

    Genealogy of Tejaji

    The Genealogy of Tejaji is as under: The primeval man of their ancestry was Mahābal, whose descendants were Bhīmsen, Pīlapunjar, Sārangdev, Shaktipāl, Rāmpāl, Dhawalpāl, Nayanpāl, Gharṣanpāl, Takkapāl, Mūlsen, Ratansen, Śuṇḍal, Kuṇḍal, Pippal, Udayarāj, Narpāl, Kāmrāj, Vohitrāj and Ṭhirarāj or Taharji. Taharji had six sons namely - Tejaji, Raṇaji, Guṇaji, Maheshji, Nagji, and Rūpji. He had two daughters namely - Rājal and Dūngari. Rājal was married. Rājal was married to Jogaji Siyag of village Tabījī (तबीजी). Rājal is unique example in history of a sister who had become sati with his brother Tejaji.

    I searched on Internet and found that some sites are showing Tejaji as Rajput warrior. Here is one site -

    http://www.tripsintoindia.com/martin6.htm

    "The temple was dedicated to Vir Tejaji who is depicted as a Rajput, mustached and beturbaned, mounted on a horse; and here's the fascinating part, holding a serpent in front of his face and apparently kissing it. According to the legend, dacoits or bandits had rustled his father-in-law's cows and Tejaji went off in pursuit of them. On the way, he encountered a snake who tried to bite him. Tejaji pleaded with the serpent to allow him to complete his mission of recovering the cows and promised that he would present himself before the snake after having done so. The snake agreed. When Tejaji returned, victorious but bloodied all over from his encounter with the rustlers, the snake refused to bite him anywhere he had been wounded, which was everywhere on his body except for his tongue, and it was there that the snake mortally wounded him."

    Here is another site which seems to be official site of NIC about Nagaur

    http://nagaur.nic.in/tourism.htm

    This site shows Tejaji as son of Dhawal Khichi of the Choudhan ruler.

    "Kharnal - It is situated on the Nagaur-Jodhpur National Highway near about 15 kms from Nagaur. It is the birth place of Lok Devta Veer Tejaji. It is believed that Kharnal was established by Dhawal Khichi who was in the 5th generation of the Choudhan ruler Gundal Rao Khichi of Jayal state. It is believed that Veer Tejaji was the son of Dhawal Khichi".

    Will somebody take the corrective actions at proper platform??

    Please read Oak. Taj Mahal was Tejo mahal. The marble was obtained from Makrana mines. Please read mahabharat/indus/Aryan etc. there is no Iron over there. Its all copper/bronze. Please read Nandas armies, the Nandal Jats n subsequently the Mauryas. How could have they captured such a vast land to reach upto Lanka like Rama because Iron was invented by Jats by that time and the concept of Yagna means burning forests was properly implimented. Rama spread agriculture with Jat/Got culture. He was born in the age of 16 mahajanapadas. Where kosal/kekaye etc. were there.

    Also, please read where from and when tobacco, sugarcane, potato, chukandar, camel, horse, haldi, neem (flora and fauna) etc. came to india or went from here?

    India keeps importing and exporting the same goods till today as it used to do thousands of years back. like export of spices, textiles, man power etc. and import of gold, horses, invaders etc.

    Dr Vir Singh

    Dr Vir Singh is an author and honorary Director of Maharaja Surajmal Centre for Research and Publication, run by Surajmal Memorial Education Society, New Delhi.

    He was born on 3 July 1935 at village Sarangpur in Bullandsahr district in Uttar Pradesh in the family of a Hindu Jat of Sejwar Gotra. His father was Late Shri Hukam Singh, a mukhiya of the village.

    I think the name of Chaudhry Lehri Singh, former member of parliament and minister in joint Punjab can also be added. He was an illustrious leader from Sonipat.

    Tara Chand - IPS

    Tara Chand Saharan (ताराचन्द सहारण) (born 6 June 1913, death 12 March 1958) was an Indian Police Service officer from Hanumangarh district in Rajasthan. He was born in a poor family in village Makkasar in Hanumangarh district. His father Keshoram Saharan had died prior to his birth. When child became of 5 years, one famous social worker of the area named Sant Swami Mansanath took away him from his mother and got admitted in a newly opened school in Sangaria.

    Education

    He could complete his fourth class with great difficulty but there was no money for studying further. His bhabhi (brother’s wife) was kind enough to help him in fifth class by offering two and half rupees for purchase of books. Next year he worked on a canal digging soil and got money for his school expenditure. Third year fortunately he got a scholarship from Birla-house and completed his middle school. His further regular studies were not possible due to poor financial conditions. So he completed high school as a private student from Punjab Education Board.

    Career

    In 1930 he joined service in Jodhpur state as a sepoy in Sardar Infantry, but left this job due to unfavourable conditions. Later in 1935 he joined Bikaner state police. He was directly appointed as a sub-Inspector due to his talents. In 1944 he was promoted to rank on Inspector and promoted as Dy.S.P. in 1947. He became S.P. in 1951. He was awarded IPS in 1957. He was a dead-honest officer. When he died there was a saving of only Rs. 139 in his account. He spent most of his savings in helping poor and needy students.

    Marriage

    After Tara Chand got job, there were number of offers of marriage. There were proposals of dowry as well. Meanwhile a social worker and educationist from the area named Chaudhary Harish Chandra Vakil sent a proposal of marriage with his elder brother’s daughter as per strict Arya Samaji system without any dowry. Tara Chand readily accepted this offer and married without taking any dowry.

    Achievements

    After independence there were Hindi-Muslim tensions. It so happened that The Maharaja of Bikaner wanted to bring two Hindu Sindhi lady doctors from Bahawalpur in Pakistan, so he asked for a brave police officer. It was a very tough and risky job. Tara Chand opted to go there with his team. The Muslim crowd when saw the Indian Police in Bahawalpur, they first attacked the police but when came to know that it was led by Tara Chand they became soft and courteous. They had so much of faith in the honesty and sincerity of Tara Chand that they not only sent the two lady doctors with him but also offered them a great welcome dinner. They all came to boarder to see them off. This was the result of his good reputation.

    He was generally posted in dacoit affected areas. In 1953 he suited a dacoit Shivnath for which he was awarded “Indian Police Gallantry award” in 1954. Pali district was badly affected by dacoit menace during those days. In 1954 he traveled 400 miles on foot in the remote areas in search of dacoits and spent 200 days continuously out of his house. The state Home Minister on 23 January 1958 called meeting of police officers regarding eradication of gang of dacoit Kalyan Singh. Tara Chand assured the minister that either he will catch the dacoit or he will dye. The dacoits were very afraid of Tara Chand. It was first event in the history of police in India that Tara Chand IPS and SP Jodhpur was martyred in encounter with dacoit Kalyan Singh after eradicating the gang of Kalyan Singh on 12 March 1958. He was awarded posthumously the “President Police and Fire Medal for Gallantry” on 2 October 1959. He had received 81 appreciation letters from his seniors during his service.

    I walked out in Jaipur that day to meet this great man. But incidentally reached BMIT instead of Balaji, like columbus reached America instead of India. I received this sad news that this great soul expired an year b4.

    therefrom from Roorkee, one day I called upon him n asked Sir, I wanna write a few papers with you, he was most receptive to me. By his books only in soil mechanics I'm here. He designed a Jodhpur permiemeter. It is my wish that this should be named as Deswal Permeameter.
