King Bhoj

King Bhoj, who ruled from about 1010 to 1060, was a great polymath and philosopher king of medieval India. His extensive writings cover philosophy, poetry, medicine, veterinary science, phonetics, yoga and archery. Under his rule, Malwa became an intellectual centre of India. Bhoj also founded the city of Bhopal to secure the eastern part of his kingdom. The Bhoja Airport at Bhopal is named after King Bhoja.

Parmar - The rulers of MULI, Surendranagar

One Branch of Parmar Rajputs is in Muli taluka in Surendranagar in Gujarat. Basically this branch is devided from Tharparkar taluka in Sindh in Pakistan.Whole branch is called as MULI CHOVISHI and RANPUR CHOVISHI. Muli was the capital of the Parmar Rajputs who are belongs to Tharparkar, NagarParkar, Pillou in the state of Sindh, at present in Pakistan. The City of Muli was built by the Parmar King Lakdhirji, the son of Ratanji Sodha and Jombai. The Parmars of Muli are famous for the battle fought between Parmar Rajputs of Muli and the Chabhad Rajputs of Sayla for the possession of a wounded partridge. The Parmars were winners.

Dalvi-Deshmukh of Nasik, Maharashtra

One branch from the Jaisalmer (Rajstan), by descent Rajputs of the Paramara-Puar clan, adopted many generations back, in 12th century, the family name of Dalvi. Before the Bhati rulers of Jaisalmer, the land was habitated by various rajput clans namely - Butas and Chunnas ( both extinct), the Barahas( now muslims), Langahas and the Royal Parmar clans of Dalvis as Lodras and Sodhas. The capital of Lodra rajputs - Lodorva, an immencse city with twelve gates about 10 miles North-West to Jaisalmer town, was passed to the ruler of Deogarh, Bhatti Deoraja. In 1025 the town was sacked and destroyed by Mehmud of Ghazni. In following decades the loot continued. So the capital was shifted to new location and in 1156 the Jaisalmer was founded by Bhati ruler- Jaisal. Imperial Gazetteer of India, v. 14, p. 2.

After the invasion and destruction of Jaisalmer in 1025 th century by Muslims, the fighting forces of Lodras are made to migrate out of Jaisalmer. To hide their identity as the Lodra -Rajput they took the name as Dalvi. The brave Dalvis then served as military chiefs on the Deogiri (Daulatabad) fort, and in Gujrath areas. Some of them moved southwards, at present they are Hindu Rajput-Marathas, native to Lakhmapur (or old Lakshmipur) and nearby area,( Ahiwantwadi Fort) near Wani-Dindori, Nasik and have the social honor of being “Deshmukh”. The name Dalvi means the brave king / chief who rules the people and fights wars.

The Dalvis of Lakhmapur as they were mighty warriors, held many important positions as regional war-lords and own private armies. The origin reference about Dalvi- Deshmukh of Nasik and Naik-Nimbalkar of Phaltan state is available in many British records and Imperial Gazetteer of India, v. 20, p. 101.

A rebellious member of the Povar or Dalvi (M. H. E. Goldsmith's Report on the Peint State (1839) Bom. Gov. Sel. XXVI (New Series), 108.) family of Peint then Part of Baglana, was sent to Delhi by order of Aurangzeb and sentenced to death, for revolt, but spared life after he embraced Islam. During the Maratha supremacy the Dalvis and the Peint estates were for a long period placed under attachment by the Peshwas. In reward for services rendered in 1818, the family were reinstated in their former position by the British government.

The original Brave-Heart Rajput-Maratha warrior clan of Dalvi are now a days busy making a headway in the present new economy. Although they are the most brilliant people who rose against the invasions and maintained the fighting spirit of the Hindustan, after independence they are mostly forgotten as if they are ordinary people who hide in homes with family at the time of wars. Its very strange and surprising that they are never given a chance to lead in the democratic India.

Panwar rulers of Malwa, Western Madhya Pradesh

The royal family of Bakhatgarh (a prominent parmar clan of Malwa, and perhaps the oldest) is presently headed by Thakur Saheb Rajendra Singhji Panwar. The Panwars of Bakhatgarh are from the Mahipawat clan of Paramara Rajputs. They are the descendants of King Bhoja. The Bakhatgarh was founded in 1799 till 1948 when it was merged with the Indian Union. A number of developmental projects were undertaken during the reign of the last ruler Shriman Thakur Saheb Rai Singhji Panwar such as building of hospitals, boys and girls school, Libraries in Bakhatgarh. The palace and other administrative buildings of Bakhatgarh were built during his tenure.

Naik Nimbalkars of Phaltan

The royal family of Phaltan which is located in present-day Maharashtra, also trace their descent from the Paramara dynasty. The Naik Nimbalkar family settled in Maharashtra in the 12th century is probably the oldest surviving dynasty in Maharashtra. The current surname of the members of this family is derived from a village called Nimblak. The Naik Nimbalkar family was very intimately related to Chatrapati Shivaji Bhosale. Saibai, who was the first wife of Chatrapati Shivaji & mother of Sambhaji Raje Bhosale, was a member of the Naik Nimbalkar family. Chatrapati Shivaji's daughter Sakhubai was also married to Mahadji Naik Nimbalkar who was the son of Bajaji Naik Nimbalkar.

Dalvi rulers of Paramara lineage

Shrimant Jaswantrao Dalvi was the Raja of Palvan Sansthan at time of the Shivaji Maharaj era (1662).He was the best friend of Shirke Raja of Shrungarpure. Pesent day this location come under the Mandangad tahasil in Ratnagiri District. This dalvi family are the migrated from royal Parmara family of Dhar.Most of the family of this lineage have social honor as Khot. Present day Dalvi's of Soveli, Palvani, Nighavani, Dudhere, Dahagao, Kumbale; and Pawar's of Bhamghar, Savri; Ghosalkar's of Ghosale are comes under the Dharpawar kuli, hence being of the same ancestral lineage these families don't marry among themselves.
