चौहान खाप

18. चौहान खाप - उत्तर प्रदेश के जनपद बागपत में चौहान वंशी लाकड़ा गोत्र के जाटों के 5 गांव रमाला, किरठल, लूम्ब, तुगाना और असारा बसे हुए हैं. यहां के लोग अपने को चौहान लिखते हैं और इन 5 गांवों की यह चौहान खाप है. इस खाप का मुख्यालय रमाला गांव में है. इस खाप के गांव तुगाना की बड़ी चौपाल से भूतपूर्व प्रधानमंत्री चौधरी चरण सिंह को स्वतंत्रता संग्राम के दौरान पहली बार हथकड़ी लगी थी. इसी खाप पर गांव किरठल में उत्तरी भारत का प्रसिद्ध गुरुकुल है. यह खाप पृथ्वीराज चौहान की वंशज है. असारा गांव अब मूले जाटों की श्रेणी में आता है. राधेश्याम चौहान (जाट गरिमा पत्रिका के प्रकाशक), अपूर्व कुमार आईएएस किरठल के हैं तथा लेखक भी इसी खाप से संबंध रखते हैं.[5]

लाकड़ा गोत्र का इतिहास

डॉ ओमपाल सिंह तुगानिया [6] ने लिखा है....लाकड़ा सिंह के नाम पर लाकड़ा जाट गोत्र प्रचलित हुआ है.

कहीं-कहीं गोत्र और वंश एक ही अर्थ में प्रयोग किए जाते हैं जो अज्ञानता का सूचक है. लाकड़ा गोत्र के गांवों यथा रमाला, किरठल, लूम्ब, तुगाना आदि में विवाह संस्कार के अवसर पर अपना गोत्र चौहान ही बताने लगे हैं जबकि गोत्र लाकड़ा और वंश या कुल चौहान बताना चाहिए.

इसी प्रकार जिला फरीदाबाद में बसे गांव मीतरोल आदि के लोग अपना गोत्र वत्स (बच्छस) बताते हैं जबकि वत्स तो ऋषि गोत्र है यह अभी तक अपने ऋषि गोत्र से काम चला रहे हैं. इनका भी गोत्र लाकड़ा ही है.

चौहान वंश से 116 गोत्रों की उत्पत्ति हुई है.

Visit of Langala by Xuanzang in 641 AD

Alexander Cunningham[7] writes that These districts are described by Hwen Thsang under the general name of Lang-kie-lo, which M. Julien renders by Langala. M. de St. Martin, however, refers it to the tribe of Langa, but it is extremely doubtful whether this is an ancient name, The other name of Langalas, quoted from the Vishnu Purana, is only a variant reading of Jangalas, which is almost certainly the correct form, as it is immediately followed by Kuru-Jangalas. Hwen Thsang fixes the capital of Lang-kie-lo at 2000 li, or 333 miles, to the west of Kotesar in Kachh. But as this bearing would place it in the middle of the Indian Ocean, the

[p.311]: true direction must be north-west. Now this latter bearing and distance correspond with the position of the great ruined city of Lakorian, which Masson[8] found between Khozdar and Kilat. In older maps the name is written simply Lakura, which appears to me to be very fairly represented by the Chinese Lang-kie-lo, or Lankara. [9] Masson describes the ruined fortifications as " remarkable for their magnitude, as well as for the solidity and the skill evident in their construction." From the size and importance of these ruins, I conclude that they are the remains of a large city, which has at some former period been the capital of the country. The Chinese pilgrim describes the province as being many thousands of li in breadth as well as in length. It is clear, therefore, that it corresponded, as nearly as possible, with the modern district of Biluchistan, of which the present capital, Kilat, is only 60 miles to the north of Lakura. In the seventh century, the capital was called Su-neu-li-shi-fa-lo, and was 30 li, or 5 miles, in circuit. The Chinese syllables are rendered by M. Julien as Sunuriswara, of which he offers no translation. But as Hwen Thsang describes a magnificent temple of Siva in the middle of the city, I infer that the Chinese transcript may be intended for Sambhuriswara, which is a well-known title of Siva as the "lord of divine beings," or the " god of gods." By assuming that this name belongs properly to the temple, the other name of Lang-kie-lo, or Lakara, may be applied to the capital as well as to the province.
