Geography

Map of Rajasthan
खेजड़ी (शमीवृक्ष, जांटी) - राजस्थान में बहुतायत से पाया जाता है

The state capital is Jaipur. Geographical features include the Thar Desert in western Rajasthan and the termination of the Ghaggar River. One of the world's oldest mountain ranges, the Aravalli Range, cradles the only hill station of Rajasthan, Mount Abu, and its world famous Dilwara Temples. Eastern Rajasthan has two national tiger reserves, Ranthambore and Sariska, as well as Keoladeo National Park near Bharatpur, famous for its bird life.

Rajasthan was earlier called Rajputana (state of Rajputs) after the ruling class of Rajputs. Rajput clans rose to prominence in the 6th century, establishing kingdoms in Rajasthan and across northern India. A number of Rajput states became tributaries to the Delhi Sultanate and Mughal Empire during those empires' peak of expansion. As these empires weakened, the Rajputs reasserted their independence. With the decline of the Mughal Empire in the 18th century, Rajputana become more and more independent. The Rajput kings concluded treaties with the British in the early 19th century, accepting British sovereignty. Ajmer became a province of British India, while the autonomous Rajput states and a few non-Rajput states (Tonk, Bharatpur, and Dholpur) were organized into the Rajputana Agency. Bharatpur and Dholpur were Jat states.

The Rajputana name of Rajasthan came into existence in the rule of Akbar but it did not get much publicity. Rajputana name come into use after Col James Tod wrote his book ‘Rajasthan’ at the time of British rule.

Jat population in Rajasthan

The exact Jat population in Rajasthan at present is not available as there is no caste wise census after 1931 in India. We can take 1931 Jat population as an indication of the proportion of it to the other castes. It can also be extrapolated on the ration of 2001 census and 1931 census, which can give approximate Jat population.

The total population of India in 1931 was 27.09 crore and in 2001 was 102.7 crore. Thus there is an increase of 3.681 times. On this basis the present Jat population in Rajasthan must be 3.681 times 1142025 = 4203800. Thus we can say population of Jats in Rajasthan is 4203800.

Jat population 1931

Thakur Deshraj has given an analysis of Jat population in Rajasthan as on 1931. Rajasthan was called Rajputana prior to independence. As per 1931 census the population of Jats in Rajasthan was as under:

Rajputana…………….1042152

Ajmer-Merwara………….30000

Bisnoi Jats………………69873

Total Jat population…. 1142025

The population of jats in then princely states where they were in sizable proportion was as under:

Bharatpur state…………72378

Bikaner state………….215947

Jaipur state……………313609

Marwar sate…………..283933

Bisnoi jats mainly inhabited the areas of Bikaner, Jaipur, Bharatpur, Marwar, Kishangarh and Mewar and their combined population was 69873.

Highest Jat density areas

Thakur Deshraj has mentioned that the maximum density of Jats was in following tehsils in each princely state as under:

Some statistics

  • The population of Jats in Rajasthan was more than all other castes, which was 9.28 % of total population.
  • In some of princely states their population was as high as 23 % of total population.
  • The population of Rajputs in the state was 633830, which was 5.65 % of total population.
  • The total Jat population including Bisnois was double of Rajputs.
  • Jats were the inhabitants of Rajasthan from much earlier periods.

Jat rulers in Rajasthan

See main article मध्यकालीन राजस्थान में जाट जनपद

According to Dr Naval Viyogi, Rajasthan was sometimes the greatest centre of Naga ruler. Present Tonk town was centre of Naga rulers and is called in the Chauhan Chronicles Takatpur after the name of Takshak Naga.[1][2]

Rajputana name for Rajasthan prior to independence creates confusion as if Rajput population is in majority in this state. Thakur Deshraj has provided facts that total Jat population in Rajasthan in 1931 census was 11,42,025 where as Rajput population was 6,33,830. Thus Jats were about double the population of Rajputs. Shekhawati was part of Jaipur state, which had the highest Jat population of 3,13,609. In some of the princely states it was about 25 percent of total population, forming the single largest caste. [3] As per Imperial Gazeteer of India v-8, p-22, More than 44 per cent of the population in Bhadra tehsil in 1901, were Jats at that time. [4]

Historical traditions are that Jats, Bhils, Ahirs, Gujars, Meenas and some other tribes had a great contribution in building the state of Rajasthan along with Rajputs. All these tribes had to suffer great difficulties to protect their culture and the land. Millions of them martyred for this land. ‘The Hinduan Suraj’ title to Udaipur was due to Bhils. Jats had been fighting since beginning. Gujars had been exterminated in Bhinmal and Ajmer areas fighting with the invaders. Bhils ruled Kota and Bundi one time. Gujars were sardars in Alwar, Jodhpur and Ajmer areas. [5]

The truth is that purohits, Charans and Court poets out of greed for money and land gave prominence to Rajputs. Later James Tod wrote annals after taking bribe from Maharaja Udaipur and Maharaja Jodhpur of the Rajputana state. He was biased towards these states and Rajputs. The earlier contributions of warriors and protectors of the land Jats, Bhils, Gujars and Meenas were neglected and lost in the history. [6]

Jats lived in the Thar Desert since ancient times according to the puranic sources. They were also settled in Sindh and Punjab who migrated to the desert area of Rajasthan from time to time. The Author of the book ‘India of the dark ages’ writes that Jat republics were present in Rajasthan. Rule of Yaudheyas in desert area and naga Jats in Nagaur has been mentioned. [7] These republics were there till the rule of Harshavardhana. After the fall Harsha in 647 AD, the Jat republics weakened due to invasions by Mugals, Turks, Muslims and Yavanas. In the sixth and seventh century when new Agnikula clan of Rajputas was created in mount Abu, many of the Jat clans merged in them. Rajput sangha was formed from Gujar clans also. The Jat clans who joined Rajput sangha were termed Rajputs. Jat clans who did not leave the Vedic tradition of widow marriage remained in Jat sangha. Later during Muslim rule, to avoid the excesses by Mugals some of these Rajputs started child marriages of girls and the widow marriages, these groups left Rajput sangha and joined again the Jats and Gurjars. According to the records of Bhats, the rule of Anangapal and Prithvi Raj Chauhan was on these Jat areas of Ajmer, Sambhar, Fulera, and Shekhawati and up to Delhi. After the fall of Prithvi Raj Chauhan, there was no alternative left for these clans except to join the Jat sangha. The large number of common clans amongst Rajputs, Jats and Gurjars indicates that intermixing of clans with these sanghas was a trend at that time. [7]

Jat clans who ruled in Rajasthan are: Punia, Beniwal, Johiya, Sihag, Saran, Godara, Kaswan, Bhadu, Bhati, Bhukar, Burdak,Chahar, Jakhar, Sangwan, Sahu, Kalher, Nain, Garhwal, Mann, Kularia, Gaina, Loyal, Balhara, Khokhar, Maurya, Bidiyasar, Nehra, etc.
