Question
hi my surname is singha hazari we r from harinagar near ghatal in paschim medinipur district now my question is are we raput if that from wher our fore fathers were migrated from

Answer
Dear Supravat,

With the information that you have provided, it is not possible to trace your roots. Yes, you are most probably from the 'kshatriya' stock. You have not mentioned your 'gotra'. 'Hazari' could indicate the number of people your forefathers commanded or their wealth (1000 bighas, etc.). What does your family tradition says? With best regards.

Yours sincerely,

Aupmanyav
