Daga


Gotra Daga had fifty two sub-Gotras. Some of them are as follows :-

            Daga, Malu, Bhabhu, Parekh, Choriya, Sehlot, Razani, Puzani, Jaiselmeriya etc. There are different opinions about the origin of gotra Daga, One view is that Acharya Jain Kushal Suri enlightened Chouhan Doongarsingh in V. 1351. The detailed story is as under :-

            Chouhan Doongar Singh was residing in Deshgram Village. He killed many cruel Muslim Sultans of Emperor of Delhi. Therefore, Delhi Emperor sent a big army to arrest Doongar Singh. When Doongar Singh came to know that a army was coming to arrest him, he got frightened and went in shelter of Jain Kushal Suri. Acharya kept Doongar Singh in his Upasra in that. In the nigh Acharya called the devas by means of mantras and ordered them to help Doongar Singh.

            With the help of the Deva’s power Doongar Singh arrested the whole army and by magic he brought the Emperor of Dhlhi asleep along with his bed in his house. The Emporor awoke. Then Dongar Singh said “Sir! You sent your army to arrest me but your whole army had been arrested by me.” Emperor – “where am I ? Who are you? How and Why you have brought me here?” Doongar Singh said “Acharya Jain Kushal Suri has many astonishing powers and he has called you here and till I am blessed by him no one can harm me.”

            King saluted the Acharya. Then Acharya ordered the Emperor never to harm the family of Doongar Singh and give them relief from excise duty. Emperor agreed and ordered and then the next moment the Emperor was in Delhi. Doongar Singh adopted Janism and converted himself and became an Oswal, his family was named Daga.

            There is yet another story about origin of Gotra Daga namely that Maheswari Rathi Maldevji was the Diwan of Ratanpur. One day Maldevji arrested B.J. Banjara for the theft of Excise duty. B.J. was father of seven daughters. They committed suicide by burning themselves and became vyantar deva and started creating nuisance in whole city. All the Rathi families of Ratanpur went in shelter of Acharya Jain Dutt Suri and requested to get rid of this trouble. Acharya by his magic power called all the seven vyantar devas and ordered                                                                                        them to keep peace. Vyantar Devas placed two conditions. 1.B.J. be released honourably, 2. The entire wealth of B.J. be returned to him. Maldevji immediately obeyed their orders. Thus peace came in the City.

            There are many questions in respect of the origin of this Gotra whether the first person was Rathi Maheswari or Chouhan Rajput but both say that there were 52 sub-gotras of Dagas. The family of Maldev came to be known as Malu and so on.

            Gotra Parakh too come from Choradias. They are unbind Parakh and Parakh of the Dagas origin are known as Bindh Parakh. The story of origin of Gotra Parakh is as under :-

            There was a Daga Johari in the Court of Maharana of Chittor. One day a Maheswary Johari came to the Court and requested the King to purchase a Pearl. King showed that pearl to many Joharies. All said that pearl was a marvolus one and has no substitute or parallel and it was very costly. When the Daga Johari saw that pearl he immediately said that there was a defect in that pearl. There is a small drop of blood in this pearl so it has no power. And no one could belive the version of Daga Johari. King became angry and ordered Daga Johari to prove it.

            Daga cut the pearl in to two pieces and everyone was surprised to see that there was a red spot in the pearl. Now, the king was pleased and enquired Daga of the cause behind the red dot. Daga replied that in swati nakshatra the mouth of seep was opened and a drop of rain water fell into the mouth of seep and at the same time a kite with a bird in her poke flew over the seep and a drop of blood fell down in the mouth of seep. When the drop of water turned into pearl them this drop of blood remained inside it, so this valuable pearl became valueless.

            The King and all others were overjoyed and amazed at the knowledge of Daga Johari. The King honoured Daga Johari with the title of Parakh and this title became his Gotra. Following are the sub-gotras of Daga :-

Malu, Bhabhu, Parakh ( Bind), Chhoria, Sehlot, Sugda, Rajani, Pujani, Bhora, Rihad, Jaisalmeria Navlakha, etc., 52 gotras.

            Kuldevi of these gotras is Shri Ashapura.
