History

Surada's second son was Dahana (दहन) from whom descended the following Jat Gotras:

In Mahabharata

Dahana was one of the eleven Rudras, son of Sthanu:

दहनॊ ऽथेश्वरश चैव कपाली च महाद्युतिः
सथाणुर भवश च भगवान रुदा एकादश समृताः (I.60.3), (1.66),

Shalya Parva, Mahabharata/Book IX Chapter 44 mentions about all rulers who came to that ceremony for investing Kartikeya with the status of generalissimo.

Shloka 31 tells us that Ansha gave unto Skanda of great intelligence five companions, Parigha, and Vata, and Bhima of terrible strength, and Dahati and Dahana, both of whom were exceedingly fierce and possessed of great energy.

परिघं च वटं चैव भीमं च सुमहाबलम
दहतिं दहनं चैव परचण्डौ वीर्यसंमतौ
अंशॊ ऽपय अनुचरान पञ्च थथौ सकन्थाय धीमते Mahabharata (IX.44.31)

Adi Parva, Mahabharata/SECTION LXVI tells us that Dahana was one of eleven sons of Sthanu. The Names were:Mrigavayadha, Sarpa, Niriti of great fame: Ajaikapat, Ahivradhna, and Pinaki, the oppressor of foes; Dahana and Iswara, and Kapali of great splendour; and Sthanu, and the illustrious Bharga. These are called the eleven Rudras.
