The kings (Kshatriya / Rajputs) had ancient alliance with various communities who they trusted. These communities had a fixed work in assisting the King which is explained below :


1. Brahmin :


Brahmins were Temple Priest, Family Priest of King (Kulguru), Advisor to the King, Teacher, Taught Art of War to Childrens of the King or Sage. Brahmins did not take part in war however, if the king needed they used to take part in war Example : Battle of 10 Kings, Varshgir, Mahabharat, etc.


Since Rig Ved times there has been alliance, mutual respect and understanding between Brahmins and Kshatriyas / Rajputs.


Kshatriyas / Rajputs are known as "Gau Brahman Pratipal" meaning protector of Cows and Brahmins.






Kshatriya / Rajput


Kshatriya / Rajput

Brahmins used to teach childrens of Kshatriyas / Rajputs and in return they used to give them Guru Dakshina (fees) and provide them with donations and protection.


Hence, there was this unique bond between both of them.


Brahmin and Kshatriya / Rajput

Many a times Bhramins used to perform Yagna for Kshatriyas / Rajputs and in return they were donated cows, land and other gifts.


Brahmin Wife Role


Kshatriya / Rajput wife Role

Place where Bhramin teachers used to stay was known as Gurukul where students used to study. The Bhramin teacher was called by students as Guru and his wife was called as Gurumata (mother).


Only students were allowed to stay in Gurukul so, the main role of Gurumata was to take care of students like their mother. She also used to help her husband in taking care of his Gurukul / Ashram.


The wife Kshatriya / Rajput used to give advice to her husband when necessary and even at the times of war used to fight against the enemy along with their husband.





During the time of Arab invasion on Bharat the Brahmins and Kshatriyas / Rajputs fought against Arab invaders and when they would die in war the wife of Brahmin and Kshatriya / Rajput used to either become Sati i.e. put her dead husbands head on her lap and set herself on fire or all the Kshatriya / Rajput wife used to get together and do Johor i.e. set themselves on fire rather than becoming sex slaves of Arab invaders.


Present Times :


Since Vedic times there has been bond between Brahmins and Kshatriyas / Rajputs which has been continued from generations to generations.


Even in present times there is a strong bond and alliance between Brahmins and Kshatriyas / Rajputs where both of them mutually respect and honor each other.


2. Gadhvi :


The origin of the Gadhvis are said to be from Mesopotamia. Gadhvi are also known as Charan.


In ancient times The Gadhvi were Nomadic people who used to raise herds and take them to eat grass which is known as char for char the word charan came.


Later the Kings used to trust them and gave their fort gates key. Fort means Gadh and from Gadh came the word Gadhvi.


Gadhvi also used to sing praise of king in a Metric known as Chand to bring enthusiasm in king.


The Gadhvis used to sing these praises for King and the King sometimes used to dance with swords.


The sword dance is done only by the Kshatriya / Rajput community.


Kings had a lot of trust on Gadhvis and during the invasion of Arabs, usually the Arabs used to kill the children's of the king and rape their wife and daughter and sell them in Arab market or used them as sex slave so, the King used to keep their wife and children's under the protection of Gadhvi's and if the King lost the war against Arabs the Gadhvi's used to take the kings family to a safe place.
