History

Malwa is a region of Punjab and parts of Haryana between the Satluj and Yamuna rivers. This Malwa should not be confused with the Malwa Plateau region of Madhya Pradesh, Central India.[4]

According to H.A. Rose[5] Khera was the son of a Sidhu Jat's daughter and treated his relations-in-law harshly — whence the name Khera fr. kharwa, 'bitter.'
