Origin

History

Tejram Sharma[12] gives details about the kings of Aryavarta defeated by Samudragupta. According to Panini, a polysyllabic name was sometime shortened in order to express affection. Thus in the case of names ending in 'ila' we find:

Devila being derived from Devadatta;
Yajnila and Yajnadatta;
Makhila from Makhadeva;
Agila from Agnidatta ;
Satila from Svatidatta;
Nagila from Nagadatta, and
Yasila, Yakhila from Yaksadatta. Similarly
Matila can be formed from Matideva or Matidatta.

Hartaj Singh Deol has provided following history of the village Maherna Kalan[13]:

The history of our village as confirmed by elders of our village is that our ancestor S.Gurdit Singh Deol was a direct descendant of Mahraja Jagdeo Parmar after he married a Bhullar Jatni of a Chief near the area of Jarg. Our village ancestor S.Gurdit Singh was given the land of Maherna Kalan as a jagir and he had 3 sons,out of which the eldest was Sardar Raja Singh. Sardar Raja Singh formed the Raja Patti of the village and are the direct descendants of Maharaja Jagdeo Parmar. The men of Raja Patti have grey/blue eyes(every male in my family does) and good height and build (I'm 6'5).

The Deol clan considers Ludhiana as its origin. Maherna is considered by many as the birthplace of Deol Jats. Another clan connected to us is Boparai, Deols don't intermarry with Boparai's. Maherna Khurd is of Boparai Jats and Bhullar's. Many village folk say that our previous village was Benra in Sangrur. Sekhon's are considered our cousins as well. Famous village of Dangon which gave us Dharmendra, also was settled by Deol Jatts of Maherna.

By many Maherna Kalan is also called Deol Sardaran da pind because of the royal connection with Parmar Rulers.

In Mahabharata

Some historians consider Devals to be descendants of Devala Rishi of Mahabharata. Devala (देवल) is mentioned in Mahabharata (I.48.8), (I.60.25)


Adi Parva, Mahabharata/Mahabharata Book I Chapter 48 describes snake-sacrifice of the king Janamejaya of the Pandava line and the names of those who became the monarch's Ritwiks and Sadasyas. Devala is one of them mentioned in verse (I.48.9).[14]


Adi Parva, Mahabharata/Mahabharata Book I Chapter 66 gives genealogy in which Devala is mentioned as son of Pratyusha in shloka 25. (BrahmaManuPrajapatiPrabhataPratyushaDevala → 2 sons). Devala had two sons who were both exceedingly forgiving and of great mental power. [15]

In Rigveda

Bhim Singh Dahiya[16] mentions: (11) Deva: mentioned in RV I/162/l a Dheva Jata. Devala is the seer of RV IX/5-24. Identical with Deval Clan.
