  1. Why not the present Saurashtra region in GUJERAT adapt the language being spoken in Tamilnadu, worthy to be the National Language, since it comprises all languages and also utilize the script developed by them, thereby credibility for such hard work? Is it tru that the Rajputs who ruled the Saurshtra Region refer the people who left this area during Muslim invasion as COWARDS?

    1. Your suggestion is worthy, requires long time to reach that goal to make it National Language. Academic institutes & researchers may attempt to realize the dream under some able leadership. First academician of Gujarat should learn Sourashtrian language.
    2. I never heard that kind of sentiments from any community where Rajputs have described as COWARDS. In fact Rajputs are extincted as a ruler species. In fact, except Rana Pratap and few other Rajput rulers surrendered Muslim kings. Currently, wherever I heard about community is: courageous, skillful, hard worker, strong affiliation about their culture, entrepreneur, intelligent. And I have no doubt of any description I heard. No other community have preserved strongly the culture for almost thousand year!

  3. It is the Rajputs in Saurashtra area who referred those who left en mass during Muslim invasion. They meant the present Sourashtra people who are domiciled in various parts of Tamilnadu,Andhra, Karnataka & Kerala.

  4. Every Sourashtrian must read this article……Thank you Dr. Vrajlal Sapovadia !
