Jump to navigation. Research conducted over eight years by Vasantrao More, 79, a well-known historian attached to Kolhapur University, and Virendra Singh Varma, 64, a former Haryana bureaucrat and president of the Maratha Jagruti Manch, has uncovered evidence to prove that the six lakh-strong Rod community, spread across villages around Panipat, has descended from the odd Maratha soldiers who hid in jungles around Panipat after being scattered by Afghan Ahmad Shah Abdali's forces.
Says Varma, who first started the investigation into the origin of the Rods a decade ago, "Right from the Marathi words in our Hindi dialect, the style of our old havelis, our love of horses to our surnames and typical customs-they all prove that we are descendants of the lost Maratha soldiers of Panipat.
The revelation has filled the entire community with nostalgia and pride. Over 80 per cent of Rod surnames match those of Marathas. As do many customs and words in their dialect. Says eminent Maharashtra historian Jaisinghrao Pawar who has written many books on Maratha history, "The research done by More is outstanding. The conclusions he has drawn are based on an in-depth study of the social, cultural and economic life of the Rods. It proves that the Rods are indeed descendants of the lost Maratha survivors of Panipat.
The matching of surnames is uncanny. Many words in their language are typically Marathi. They call puran polia Maharashtrian sweet roti, poli. They refer to a rupee as honwhich was what Chhatrapati Shivaji's currency was called. They stand out in Haryana for eating dal and rice at night, a common practice among villagers in Maharashtra even today.
Till recently, every Rod home had swords and spears and our love for horses was legendary. The village had, till recently, a number of Maratha-style havelis. One such old dilapidated haveli can be seen in Jhanjhari village. It has a richly carved rectangular wooden door beneath an arched entrance. Says Naresh Khokhare, 36, a farmer, "The only difference between this entrance gate and the gates of havelis in Maharashtra is that their version is made of black stone while we used wood and carved it.
A simple, though by no means less conclusive, proof of the Maratha heritage of the Rods is the practice of saying " Chhatrapati ki Jai " long live Chhatrapati Shivaji at the drop of a hat.
Says Kuldip Singh Bhonsle, a Rod farmer who lives in the Kunjpura fort near Panipat, "That we are descendents of the survivors of Panipat battle has given us a new, proud identity.Why don't fictional characters say "goodbye" when they hang up a phone?
