Initiatives for Mair Rajput History

Initiatives for Mair Rajput History

We live in a unique era when vast amounts of knowledge are literally at our fingertips. With this is mind, I find it entirely feasible that the true, objective history of Mair Rajputs will be discovered piece by piece and put together within the next 10 years.

To this end, the following initiatives will help us towards accomplishing this goal:

  1. Translation of "Rajput Swarnkar Directory" by Dr. Gurcharan S. Sake from Gurmukhi to English and placing its entire contents on this website.
  2. Creation of Mair Rajput Yahoo group for the exchange of Mair Rajput history between like-minded individuals. To subscribe to this Yahoogroup, click here.
  3. DNA testing of various gothras to search for common links. Websites such as www.familytreedna.com offer such testing. It would be interesting to see, for example, if Gognas are truly Kachwaha (Suryavanshi) Rajputs. All it would take is a simple DNA test.
  4. Sponsor Master's or Ph.D. graduate student(s) at a reputable university in India who are studying anthropology/history. They will study the history of Mair Rajputs as a whole and on a gothra-by-gothra basis. They will be required to tour several states of India, including Rajasthan, and will need to have knowledge of the Hindi, Punjabi, Urdu, and Sanskrit languages. They will trace the origins of the tribe and gothras as far back as possible.
  5. Redesign of this website. Webpage design has continued to evolve quickly, while this website has remained fairly simple.
  6. Create an Internet "web-based" network of Mair Rajput websites. There are many Mair Rajput associations all over the world. How come almost none of them have a website?
  7. Done by a single individual, these items will take several years to complete. However, if all Mair Rajputs work together in a spirit of cooperation and share all of our information, we will one day have a clear idea of what our heritage is and will be able to leave future generations a precious gift.
