The Founders


Ram Swarup Joon[1] writes In the Sabha Parva, Mahabharata/Book II Chapter 48, while describing various Kings who attended a ceremony in the Durbar (court) of Maharaja Yudhisthira, seventeen names are mentioned which are today found as Jat gotras. These are Malhia, Mylaw, Sindhar, Gandhar, Mahity, Mahe, Savi, Bath, Dharan, Virk, Dard, Shaly, Matash, Kukar (Khokar) Kak, Takshak, Sand, Bahik (Bathi) Bije (Bijenia), Andhra, Sorashtra (Rathi) Mann, Ar, Sohat, Kukat, Othiwal (Othval).

Ram Sarup Joon[2] writes that Thaka, Janjoha and Bath gotras are branches of Yaudheya/ (Johiya) gotra. According to the Mahabharata Yodhya Kings gave presents on the coronation ceremony of Yudhisthira. Arrian, the historian of Alexander the Great, also refers to Yodha ruling dynasty.

Bath is an ancient clan still existing in village Rajewal/Kulewal near Samrala, Ludhiana district. Their coins also have been found with the legend Vata Svaka. The first name is of the clan Vata or Bata which is now written as Bath and the second name of course may be of the individual ruler. [3] The find spot of the coins also points to the Punjab source.[4]
