    Thanks. The fact that after spending over three decades in roaming around the Globe to spread the consciousness among the political activists and big powers of the world of his times, Raja Mahendra Pratap, returned to India and initially fought Lok Sabha Elections against the Congress and was defeated. But he continued his crusade against the social evils, casteism, dowry, untouchability and corruption. He also subscribed to the idea of world government and did hard work to see that his efforts fructify. He also was a prolific writer and saw in print his ideas on multiple issues dear to him.

    He won the Mathura lok Sabha seat and went to represent his people in the August House. He remained for a number of years President of Indian Freedom Fighters' Body and contributed a lot in that capacity to improve the condition of the deprived freedom fighters.

    In view of his multifarious activities and contribution in various fields he was popularly known as Aryan [Jat] Peshwa.

    One can learn from his life and contribution a lot if one tries to emulate a few traits from history of the man.

    Salute to the ever Great Freedom fighter and,

    above all,

    an all time Super Jat Genius !

    Chaudhary Chhaju Ram Lamba from Alakhpura, who rose from humble beginnings to the position of one of the richest persons of his times, spent huge sums of money to charitable and philanthropic activities and thus created a name for fame in the history of the Jats on account of his hard labour and dedication.

    He was the real gem of the society who promoted education among the Jats by extending help in opening educational institutiions spread far and wide in the Jat populated areas.

    A Temple and name of a mountain in the name of Asoka the Great in China

    King Asoka Temple King Asoka Temple is situated on King Asoka Mountain in the east of Ningbo City, Zhejiang Province, and is one of the Five Mountains of Buddhism's Chan Sect (Zen) in China. It is famous home and abroad because of the pagoda of the body relic of Sakyamuni Buddha in the temple. The temple is also the only extant ancient temple of one thousand years old named after King Asoka of India in China. In 1983, it was designated as one of national key temples in the areas of the Han nationality.Historical records of Buddhist sources show that in the third century BC, King Asoka, who unified India, became a Buddhist and began to carry forward Buddhist doctrines. After Sakyamuni passed away, King Asoka ordered to build pagodas with the body relic (bone ash) of Sakyamuni. He ordered his people to build pagodas in any alleged Auspicious Places all over the world to place the real body relic of Sakyamuni. Totally 84,000 pagodas were built. According to the records of Buddhist scriptures, the number of such pagodas in China is nineteen. Because such temples were built by the order of King Asoka, they were named King Asoka Pagoda.King Asoka Temple was built in 282 the Western Jin Dynasty (265-316). Since then, the temple has experienced several rises and declines. The existing buildings are those rebuilt after the Qing Dynasty (1644-1840). In 1980, it underwent a complete renovation. Now, King Asoka Temple has a magnificent scale with a simple and unsophisticated structure, owns more than 600 halls, rooms, and pavilions, and covers an area of 14,000 square meters. Buildings, sculptures, gardens, and paintings of the temple are all very unique and of high value as cultural relics.King Asoka Temple takes an important position in China's history of Buddhism as well as Sino-India cultural exchanges. Especially, the Real Body Relic of Sakyamuni, treasure of the Buddha Kingdom, enshrined in the temple, enjoys a very high reputation in the Buddhist circle home and overseas. The dagoba is placed in a seven-storeyed stone pagoda in the Buddha's Relics Hall. A lying Statue of Sakyamuni stands behind the pagoda.There are many scenic spots and historical sites near King Asoka Temple. A stone pavilion named Fodao (Buddha has come) Pavilion on a big stone on which it is said that Kassapa Buddha stepped with his left foot. Under the pavilion, there stands a big stone named Suiyan, on which more than ten people can sit together. Another scenic spot is the legendary Seven Buddha Pool, where seven Buddhas were said to have once bathed. Water in the pool is very deep, and the ambience here is quiet and secluded. It is really a good cool place for people to spend the summer.Source : http://www.chinaculture.org/gb/en_ab...tent_25409.htm

    A few words by way of self clarification :

    In fact, no unanimity has been arrived at as to the first use of word Jat by these authors also as we use it today to describe a community/caste/race/people and so on. The present day clan names match to ancient narratives and we in our excitement jump to claim that 'this' or 'that was the Jat !

    This is not with the Jat history only but confusing situation prevails about the antiquity of history of other indian castes, too, like Rajputs/gurjars/Ahirs/Yadavas and so on.

    The confusing position as regards Jats is that serious attempts by pioneer Historians on the Jats to dig out antiquity of the word 'Jat' remained confined to extant Sanskrit literature which in turn proved creation of more confusion than to solve the mystery.

    Then historians moved to another field i.e. tracing antiquity of various Jat clans about which latest scholar B S Dahiya did a valuable service to the history of Jats. We may agree or disagree with some of his findings but cannot overlook his research zeal and results arrived at with quotation of references from different language sources of history.

    The contribution of Hukam Singh is second to none so far collection/consultation of sources on the antiquity to dna use to find out the roots of the Jats. But, in a nut shell, though he shattered a number of mythical hypotheses yet could not produce one authentic theory of his own.

    Therefore, in the quest for finding the root/first word in literature of any language used around the world and original home of the Jats somewhere on the Globe, the discussion continues to progress.

    Let us hope some convincing results would emerge one day not in distant future but soon !

    P S : Recently Dr. S S Rana has also brought out a monograph on this very theme.

    I think the issues relevant for examination have been put into focus quite clearly in the above post by Dr. Rajpal Singh. We might be profited if we keep our discussiob within these parameters.

    1.The vestiges of Vedic life are most transparently and most profusely found reflected in life and ways of the people whom we call or who call themselves 'Jat'. Not many scholars dispute this.
    2. Majority of international scholars believe the Vedic people indigenous as against migrants from Central Asia. The Aryan Invasion Theory stands, by and large rejected.
    3.B.S. Dahiya rides two horses- the clan route and the central Asian route. In fact he is found chanching horses too frequently. His main plank of etymological technique is highly faulted on two counts viz. disregard of the historical context and his utter inadequacy in precise comprehending the Sanskrit texts......

  31. #80
    4. A critique of his book ( of some parts only) is given at the end of the book in the wikified version on Jatland Wiki.
    5. Hukam Singh also suffers from similar handicaps. But he surpasses Dahiya in speculating. He initially considers the Jats as original Aryan inhabitants of India. Simultaneously he calls them Shakas. Then he takes them to Central Asia and yet again he brings them back as re-immigrants. Thus he would combine the Central Asian theory and the indigenous Aryan theory. His handling of the Sanskrit references, to say the least is laughable.
    6. To my knowledge ancient sources in SDanskrit, in accounts of the greeks and Chinese there are references nowhere to the label 'Jat' but numerously to the clans which can be associated with the people who arte called jats/Rajputs and even Ahirs and Gujars in some cases.
    7. Let us ask our selves why so.
