Historical Background of Gurjar Kshatriya Kadia Community
In this article we are getting information about Shri Gurjar Kshatriya Kadia community since inception of earth. The circumstances in which our forefathers have lived their life. How they evolved. The age of our forefather counted as Royal/Mighty & they emerged as very powerful citizens. When guru " PARSHURAM" took pledge to kill kshatriya's in order to take revenge of his father's death, kshatriya left their religion in order to save their life. Instead of saying Kshatriya Kumar they recognized themselves as Kumbhar (POTTER) to save their life as a part of their identity & finally they accepted word Kumbhar (POTTER).
After 558 AD the rule of our forefather came into existence, following
the rules of like "Chavda","Solanki", "Parmar", " Jethwa"," Makwana",
"Bhati" & " Chauhan" have enjoyed their rules. This age is existed
till 1400 A.D.& there after the period of "Sultan" & "Mogals" came
into existence. In order to save the life from the harassments &
cruelty of Muslim ( Mogal) rulers, our forefathers gave up their
Kshatriya religion & started to work as soldiers of Britishers &
Mogals. Brave story of King Vasantraj Chahuna & Shurapura's Pillar
(Shurapura na Paliya) & remains of sad period is the existence of
Kshatriya's existence. During the period of Maratha's & Britishers our
forefathers used to do farming in order to live their life. Unity &
status of Kshatriya's were broken after 1400A.D.
In our community person like " Ganga Maru" did hard work to to unite
roaming Kshatriya's family & send them to Kutchh from different part
of Saurashtra. Thety developed a village named " Ghaneti" & settled
Kshatriya's family overthere. One troop settled to "Saver" Village
from Kutchh & that famous as "Saver Kundla" and from few of them went
to Hallar (Guj) & throught India. They took interest in activity like
agriculture, mason, and construction work to suit with the situation.
New big palaces, big wells & steps of lakes & building were build. Our
forefathers have accepted the situation suited for there survival. And
with time they accepted the surname of " Kadia" or "Mistry" due to
their preoffesional need.
Various Kshatriya's community migrated to Marvad, Mewad, Kutchh &
other part of Kutchh from Saurshtra. Due to problems like drought,
hunger and natural obstacles our forefathers have accepted their life
as an mason, farmer etc. It was believed that our fore fathers were
Kshatriya's & they started making massonary tools. During this
religion & spirituality was brought in air by god Swaminarayana &
saint Maharshishi Dayananda(Arya samaj).
