History

H.A. Rose[4] writes that Golia (गोलिया) or Gawalia (गवालिया), a very curious tribe of Jats, only found in Rohtak and Karnal. According to their bard's version they were originally Brahmans, who lost caste by inadvertently drinking liquor placed outside a distiller's house in large vessels (gol). The local Brahmans apparently admit the truth of this story. They now intermarry with Jats, but not with the Dagar or Sulanki ; for while they were Brahmans the latter were their clients, while when they first lost caste the former alone of all Jat tribes would give them their daughters to wife, and so have been adopted as quasi-brethren. They came from Indore to Rohtak some 30 generations ago.


Ram Swarup Joon[5] writes that The bard (Bhat) of Gulia clan has written something unbelievable about the origin of this clan.
