They claim to be descendants of ruling Hindu warrior classes of North India. Rajputs rose to prominence during the 6th to 12th centuries. The Rajput population and the former Rajput states are found spread through much of the subcontinent, particularly in north, west and central India. There are several major subdivisions of Rajputs, known as vansh or vamshathe step below the super-division jati.
These vansh delineate claimed descent from various sources, and the Rajput are generally considered to be divided into three primary vansh: Suryavanshi denotes descent from the solar deity Surya, Chandravanshi from the lunar deity Chandra, and Agnivanshi from the fire deity Agni.
Lesser-noted vansh include Udayvanshi, Rajvanshi, and Rishivanshi. The histories of the various vansh s were later recorded in documents known as vanshaavaliis. Marriages within a kul are generally disallowed with some flexibility for kul-mates of different gotra lineages.
The kul serves as primary identity for many of the Rajput clans, and each kul is protected by a family goddess, the kuldevi. Each of these Vanshas or lineages is divided into several clans kulaall of whom claim direct patrilineage from a remote but common male ancestor who supposedly belonged to that Vansha.
Each shakha or basic sub-clan has its individual genealogical creed, describing the essential peculiarities, religious tenets, and original domicile of the clan.

They were said to have evolved from the arms of Brahma, signifying that their role in society was the protection of people and livestock.
The Hindus maintain that only a Kshatriya had the right to rule, though Brahmin rulers are not unknown. They were supposed to be brave and fearless and to live and die by a code of honor and loyalty.
Their most exalted death was to die in battle. The Puranas say that Parashurama in his time destroyed all the men of the Kshatriya race. Since there was no one left to rule, anarchy prevailed.
The Brahmins realized that a class of rulers was required. They held a sacrifice near Mt. Abu Rajasthanand from the fire pit emerged four clans: the Parmars, Chauhans, Parihars, and Solankis. These fire-born clans Agnikula were called Rajputs.
History of Rajputs in India
There are also leading Rajput clans that claim descent from the sun and the moon and accordingly labeled themselves as Suryavanshi and Chandravanshi. Kshatriyas dominated Indian political life down the centuries. Even under the British, there were approximately Indian states. These states had not been annexed by the British and were responsible for their internal administration.
Some accepted the suzerainty of the Crown and allowed the British to administer their defense and external relations. When the India Independence Act, was passed, it decreed the lapse of suzerainty of the British Crown. The Indian states regained the position they had held prior to the assumption of suzerainty by the Crown. However, in their own interest, most states merged with either the Dominion of India or Pakistan.
All states located within the geographical boundary of the Dominion of India acceded to it by August 15,except Hyderabad, Kashmir, and seven other states.Style Switcher A A A.

The clan traces its lineage back to Rama, the mythical hero of the Hindu epic Ramayana and through him back to the sun god Surya himself. Which is why the Rathores also call themselves Suryavanshi or family of the sun. From the story of the martial clan, the Rathores who ruled Marwar from Jodhpur till the merger of the Princely States with the Dominion of India inone must travel further back in time to the year It was in that year, thousands of miles away in eastern India that the Muslim invader, Shahabuddin Mohammed Ghori, defeated the mighty Jaichand of Kanauj.
It was Jaichand's great-grandson, Sheoji, who rode out to Marwar ineager for fresh battlefields and glory all his own.
And it is Sheoji's descendants who proudly bear the name, Rathore. In the principal cities of Marwar were Mandore, today a fifteen minute drive from Jodhpur and Pali, an hour's drive south; and it was the latter, a rich commercial centre, that Sheoji first conquered.
Over the decades the Rathores expanded steadily but it was only inin the reign of their twelfth ruler, Rao Chunda, that they acquired - not conquered - Mandore. Mandore is Marwar's most historic city. Today in ruins, it was the capital of many a great dynasty. In that year their Governor in Mandore, Aibak Khan, demanded fodder as well as the tax on grain, and this eventually proved to be his undoing.
The Parihars, tired of this autocratic man, hatched a plan, which, in ingenuity matched the famous Trojan Horse, and in bravery far surpassed it. Five hundred Parihars smuggled themselves into the fortified city in a hundred cart-loads of grass.
These carts were checked randomly and prodded with spears. Some men were pierced but they uttered not a sound and, in fact, even managed to wipe the blood off the spears as they were withdrawn.
Then the Parihars fell upon the Muslims. Within an hour Mandore was once again in their hands but the victors realised that defending her was going to be an entirely different problem. It was then that someone suggested a marital alliance be arranged with the young Chunda. Thus did Mandore, the capital of Marwar, come to the Rathores in a dowry.
As the unchallenged rulers of Mandore, Sheoji's descendants were firmly established as the most powerful clan in the region.
Spelling Mistakes are Keeping Out 26 Castes from Reservation in Chhattisgarh
And it was left to Chunda's grandson, Rao Jodha, to secure a place for the Rathores in the annals of India by building one of her most spectacular forts and founding one of her most charming cities.
The foundation of this fort was laid on 12 May by Jodha himself on rocky Bhakurcheeria, only six miles away from Mandore. Perhaps with Cheeria Nathji's curse ringing in his ears, Jodha had a young man buried alive in it to ensure the new site proved propitious. This man was Rajiya Bambi who was promised that his family and descendants would be looked after by the Rathores. It is a promise that has been honoured and Rajiya's descendants, who still live in Raj Bagh, Rajiya's Garden; the estate bequeathed to their ancestor by Jodha, continue to enjoy a special relationship with the Maharaja.
Rao Jodha's citadel, on which he spent all of nine hundred thousand rupees, was very different from what his descendant, the present Maharaja of Jodhpur, Gaj Singh II, inherited four hundred and ninety three years later in It was much smaller and of the seven gates at present only one was built by Jodha himself.
As the Rathores grew more powerful, Mehrangarh, at once a reflection of their glory and the basis of their strength, expanded. Almost every ruler left his mark and herein lies the fort's unique beauty, for it is today a magnificent blend of different reigns and ages, styles and influences, compulsions and dreams.
Its towering battlements, a hundred and twenty feet high, and stone walls, in places six metres thick, testify to the might of Maldev in whose reign the Rathores reached the zenith of their power.
The palaces, extravagant edifices of peace and prosperity, whisper a thousand secrets; stories of machiavellian intrigues, dazzling riches and royal pleasures under the Mughal umbrella The main gates, Fateh Pol and Jai Pol, sing of great victories, against the Mughals in and the Jaipur forces a hundred years later; while the ramparts, fiercely brandishing Maharaja Abhaya Singh's cannonsproudly proclaim these victories to the world.Free for one month and pay only if you like it.
Janjgir - Champa C. Rakhi, District Raipur C. Vijay Kumar Kaiwartya Roll No. Rakhi, New Raipur Chhattisgarh. Civil Line, District Raipur Chhattisgarh. Rakhi, New Raipur, Chhattisgarh. Relief s sought :. In WPS No. By amending the relief clause the petitioner has further prayed for setting aside the appointment of the respondents No. Petitioner Ku. Brief facts :. The police headquarters issued advertisement on for filling up 50 posts of Subedar, posts of Sub Inspector, 28 5 posts of Sub Inspector Special Branch90 posts of Platoon Commander, 19 posts of Sub Inspector Radio6 post of Sub Inspector Finger Print and 2 posts of Sub Inspector Disputed Documentin all posts for which the petitioners submitted their applications.
WPS No. Petitioner's claim is based on the memo dated wherein his name finds place amongst the candidates who have been chosen for appointment from the waiting list. State's stand in this petition is that the said memo was wrongly issued on the basis of descending order roll numberwise whereas, in fact, the petitioner has secured less marks than the last selected candidate in the OBC category. It is the specific stand of the State that the last candidate in the OBC category for the post of Sub Inspector has secured It is a trite law, as held by the Supreme Court in Shankarsan Dash v.
Union of India1Union of India and Others v. High Court of Judicature at Patna and Another 4 that the empanelment of a candidate in the select list does not create any vested right for appointment, therefore, the respondents are justified in taking the stand that the memo datedwhich was wrongly issued, does not create any right in petitioner's favour.
Accordingly, WPS No. According to this petitioner, initially 9 Scheduled Caste Woman category candidates were selected, but 3 posts remained vacant because Meena Kumari merit No.
Referring to the document by which the petitioner was informed for appearing in medical test, learned State counsel would argue that the said select list was only tentative and, in fact, it was a waiting list, which was wrongly construed by the Superintendent of Police, Janjgir-Champa, as the final select list, therefore, the petitioner cannot derive any benefit out of the same.
Learned counsel would further submit that the select list, which is impugned in this petition, was, in fact, issued on Referring to the circular datedlearned counsel for the State would submit that if suitable women candidates are not available the post can be filled up by male candidates, therefore, there is no illegality in appointing the male candidates when sufficient number of female candidates were not available.
Learned counsel appearing for the respondents No. It is also not in dispute that the petitioner was the tenth candidate in the list of the Scheduled Caste Woman category. It is extremely unfortunate that the State Government's interpretation of this circular is not only flawed, but also impermissible. The circular no where provides that even if wait listed or meritorious women candidates are available in a particular category, they have to be filled up by male candidates and not by the candidates belonging to Scheduled Caste women category.
Thus, there is no occasion for application or 10 different interpretation of the circular dated Sub-rule 2 of Rule 12 is absolutely clear in terms having no ambiguity whatsoever, therefore, the respondent State is bound to publish consolidated merit, categorywise merit together with categorywise waiting list which includes categorywise merit list of candidates covered under horizontal reservation.
It is settled by the Supreme Court in Richa Mishra v. State of Chhattisgarh and Others5 that women candidates by themselves belong to a separate class and needs encouragement, to progress from weaker section to a progressive working woman. It is extremely sad and unfortunate that the police headquarters of the State of Chhattisgarh has deliberately chosen to advert to an interpretation which is in conflict with sub-rule 2 of Rule 12 and thereby denied the horizontal reservation to Scheduled Caste Woman category candidates.
It would naturally lead to empowerment of women, which is the need of the hour. Women in this world, and particularly in India, face various kinds of gender disabilities and discriminations.
It is notwithstanding the fact that under the Constitution of India, women enjoy a unique status of equality with men. In reality, however, they have yet to go a long way to achieve this Constitutional status.Ramashankar Kherwar belongs to the reserved tribe of Sarguja, Chhattisgarh. Due to this spelling mistake approximately more than 20 lakh of people are now deprived of their rights.
Similar spelling mistakes have become a challenge for 26 castes including 8 dalit caste and 18 tribal castes. Last year, Chhattisgarh government sent the record to the central government for correction. As per the tribal ministry, such issues generally occurred in Chhattisgarh, while undivided Madhya Pradesh including Chhattisgarh used to update the data correctly. After the establishment of Chhattisgarh state such issues increased, but government could not resolve despite completing 16 years of establishment.
They can themselves correct it, because in the past the deprived castes have been reserved. The Chhattisgarh state Scheduled Tribes Commission has made it clear that it is issue of state government.
They have informed that the correction issue is not an affair of the Centre. That is why government of Chhattisgarh must rectify the data. He further says, mis-spelled castes are not new to the reservation system, rather have been under reservation in the undivided Madhya Pradesh. Earlier these castes were included under Schedule Cast and Schedule Tribe, so the state needs to make correction in their records. A few days ago, a representative group led by the convenor of the committee Bhojraj Gourkhede, met with member of Chhattisgarh Scheduled Cast Commission Punitram Chouhan.
The committee president BS Jagrat said in Raipur, Bilaspur, Durg and Bhilai officers are demanding revenue records of before from the people themselves. It is quite illogical for a common man to provide these. He warns, if the issue is not resolved at the earliest, committee will call a big agitation against the government for which lakhs of people will come out on the streets of state capital Raipur. On the issue, tribal minister of Chhattisgarh Kedar Kashyap says that it is a big issue.
We have communicated with the Chief Minister Dr. Raman Singh, but it is very technical and time taking. Shirish Khare is based in Raipur, Chhattisgarh, and works as a special correspondent for the Rajasthan Patrika.
Shirish Khare — The spelling mistake became challenge for 26 castes in the group of which 8 are dalit castes and 18 are adivasis — This figure may grow bigger as many other castes may be the victim of this spelling mistake, amongst them they have no one to voice their rights and represent them — Struggle by deprived groups is intensifying in Chhattisgarh Raipur Ramashankar Kherwar belongs to the reserved tribe of Sarguja, Chhattisgarh.
