Mohyal News

Mohyal News

                          Jaipal Singh Datta
Dear Mohyal 
I received one letter from Mohyal Biradari.
I have copied and pasted it for your information.
I think nobody stops us to start new Mohyal Sabha for the Mohyal Biradari.
Let each Mohyal be a member of one or two Sabha. 
I do not believe in criticizing. It shows jealousy, anger, and non-cooperation in united teamwork.
Let any other Mohyal come forward and unite other Mohyals. General Mohyal Sabha is not the property of anyone but it is a continuity of efforts. Nothing is constant and change is the law of nature. Do not critisize but act and develop new Mohyal Sabha.
Jai Mohyal

Mr. Devinder Mehta Ji,
                                                Jai Mohyal,
1.         I have gone through the email which was addressed to Mr. Paras Bakshi, your views are praise-worthy. But who will accept our proposals? Out of 40 GMS Elected Members, 39 Mohyals are elected by adopting the illegal method in the Election process by the mercy of Sh. B.D.Bali. Then how can they go against the wish and will of Sh. B.D. Bali.
2.         I do agree with your statement that the term for Presidentship must be fixed either two terms or at the most three terms continuously. Do you think that the other Mohyals have not thought of it, but the system is defective which requires to be corrected which is only possible if the amendment is made in the Constitution of the GMS. In this case the consent of the AGM has to be obtained.
3.         You might have noticed the improvement in every sphere in the world which is only due to the global change. Who so ever be on the post would have done better and we should not have any doubt in the creditability of our Mohyal Brothers. Every Mohyal is capable to handle the situation.
4.         We are legging behind because our younger generation is taking very less interest in the Community affairs. For this our youngsters are not to be blamed, in fact the elders are to be blamed, who have not taught / educated them properly. No doubt our youngsters are very intelligent, capable and courageous and can do better then us. A little initiative is required for bringing them on the streamline. I hope you will agree to my point.
5.         We are inviting problem and corruption by providing the maximum tenure to the members of the GMS / President. You might have experienced the person who are in the governing body since very long, out of few are not in a position to walk properly but even though they don’t want to leave the post. Why because the reason is best known to all.
6.         I would like to make it very clear that Mohyal Mitter is the property of all the Mohyals who live in India or Abroad and it is not a property of few persons. It is the only source through which the news of the community, suggestions for betterment for the community can be communicated. The matter / suggestions submitted by any Mohyal should be published in the Mohyal Mitter without any hitch because the person who submits the suggestions is entirely responsible / answerable to the community. So the Chief Editor should not refuse for publication, moreover the constitution of the GMS also does not allow any one to refuse for publication. It is observed that the matters are censored and secondly it is not published with out mentioning any reason. This proves the GMS is not functioning in a Dramocatic way but in the Dictatorial way.
7.         The Suggestions are always better for the improvement, rather the GMS should also invite the suggestions so that they may come to know the short comings and find out the solution. But it is observed instead of inviting suggestions they are crushing the suggestions made by Mohyal Brothers. This Dictatorship attitude will definitely lead towards destruction.
8.         You might have seen the letter written by Col. R.S.Bali (Rtd) published in the Mohyal Mitter of Nov 2010, in response to my suggestions. Suggestions made by me were not published even on my repeated requests whereas the comments on my suggestions made by Col. R.S.Bali (Rtd) were published. What does it reflect, the Chief Editor of Mohyal Mitter only want to create confusion in the mind of readers of Mohyal Mitter against myself.
8.         The Cruel hand of the death had snatched your younger brother Sh. Mohinder Mehta (Founder President of Mohyal Sabha of Rohini Pritampura and Secretary Youth wing GMS)  at an early stage when his services were urgently required for the upliftment of the community. He was the man who fought against the proposed candidate of Sh. B.D. Bali and he helped in defeating the five candidates of Sh. B.D. Bali in GMS Election. At that time the situation was considered to be a very big achievement. If he had been here the appearance of the GMS would have been different to the present form. We pray to the Almighty God to allow his noble departed soul to rest in peace.
9.         I would like to make it very clear that there are Mohyals who are very courageous, who can speak the truth before anyone.
10.       In the last I can say all the matters can be sorted out if we all are bent upon to do so. For this we have to request the GMS President for calling AGM so that the consent may be obtained for the amendment in the Constitution of the GMS for the following points.
(a)        Term fixed for Presidentship.
(b)        Change in the Election Process.
(c)        Criteria for publication in Mohyal Mitter.
(d)        Any other matter which we feel deems to be fit.
With regards,
(Madhu Sudan Dutta)

Respected all,
I am in the opinion that there should be a limitation of tenure for serving the Mohyal Biradri. An amendment should be suggested that GMS Elected member can serve the community for maximum tenure of 2 terms. In case he is so suitable than he has to  skip 3rd term and wait for next election i.e it will be 4th term.
Though Mr. B.D. Bali has put up long service to our Biradri and every one admires his capability and creditablity.
Now a days young generation is building the nation. Have an example of Mr. Rahul Gandhi same way the hiden talent can ben tapped through democratic way.
Hope that my point will be clear. The yes Man tenure should be limited by amending the consitution so that this type of question doesnot arise. It should not  be like 2G Spectrum issue.
Every mohyal member has the right to point out or suggest the good ways for the betterment of the community.
There may be many members like Madhu Sudan who are thinking on this line but donot have enough courage to point out openly.
Regards & Jai Mohyal,
Deveinder Mehta

Dear Shri Madhusudan Dutta ji,
                                             It has been a long practise in India that the people in power, more often than not misuse it, so it does not surprise me at all that the powers that be in G M S are misusing the trust and powers vested in to them, by us.
Shri B D Bali, in his infinite wisdom, has surrounded himself , with YES MEN, retired from bureaucracy and other governmental departments. These are the people who know how to crub the rights of other people, withhold information from from general public and are experts in leaking information which suit their masters.
Sir, I am surprised that you even thought that your suggestions will ever be published in Mohyal Mitter. How did you think that the your Ideas, which would drastically change the working and system of the apex body o Mohyal, would be entertained? The only mouth piece of Mohyal community is not to serve ordinary Mohyals like you or me. It is a tool to further the cause of a choosen few and a platform for anybody who praises B D Bali. It is a magazine for spreading misinformation and malicious intentions of groupism in a small and educated community of Mohyals.New Ideas for betterment of community, news about corruption and misdeeds of Managing Committee of The G M S can never be published in it.
Still, the effort done by you is laudable, because you have at least started a chain, which with your persistent efforts will only grow further.

                                                                            Paras Bakshi

Sub:-    Request to publish my reply with reference to Col. R.S. Bali (Bakshi) Rtd letter published in Mohyal Mitter of  November 2010
Respected  Chief Editor,  
                                                Jai Mohyal,
1.         I had submitted the letter dated 25/08/2010 for publication in Mohyal Mitter but it was not published even on my repeated requests. On the other hand the letter of Col. R.S. Bali (Bakshi) Rtd, addressed to me and copy to GMS for information was published in Mohyal Mitter of November 2010 when no request was made in the letter to publish in the Mohyal Mitter. What does it reflect? It appears from your action that you only want to defame me in the eye of readers of Mohyal Mitter and Mohyal Community when no fault of mine, as you know well also. I fail  to understand why you are having this type of attitude against me.
2.         I don’t know from where you have derived the formula (which is not in the constitution of GMS) that the letters submitted by me for publication in the Mohyal Mitter, will not be published and the reply received with reference to my letters from any one will be published in the Mohyal Mitter.For further clarification in this regard please refer letters of Sh. Joginder Kumar Vaid, Kurukshetra (JKV/10/21 dated 10/11/2010 and JKV/10/24 dated 18/11/2010).
3.         Now I am submitting the reply to Col. R.S. Bali (Bakshi) Rtd with reference to his letter published in Mohyal Mitter of November 2010 and copy to GMS for information and Publication in Mohyal Mitter. So as to bring the facts in the knowledge of the Mohyal Community and clear the confusion from the mind of Mohyal community if it is created by the letter of Col. R.S. Bali (Bakshi) Rtd. It is requested to publish my reply in the Mohyal Mitter by applying the same method as it was applied in the case of Col. R.S. Bali (Bakshi) Rtd letters. I hope now there should not be any problem for publishing my reply in the Mohyal Mitter because the yard stick fixed for publishing the matter in Mohyal Mitter can not differ from one to another.
4.         I am sending email to Mohyals whose emails are available with me. This is for your kind information.
Thanking you,  
                                                                                                                        Yours faithfully,
                                                                                                                        (Madhu Sudan Dutta)

Respected CoI. R.S. Bakshi
I Madhu Sudan Dutta have received your letter dated 10th Sep, 2010 and read its contents. Sorry I am late to send you the reply as I was having some urgent jobs to be done.
No doubt you are deeply involved in GMS but you are not aware of the facts, It would be better before advising, you should go into the depth of the facts and search the answer from your conscience that "WILL BE NO".
I am not indulging in anti activity or criticizing any body but simply suggesting about the negative points those are defaming the GMS. I do agree that Mr. B.D. Bali has been performing the duty of President for the Last 33 years, so we can say he is doing good but can not say better why, because there was no comparison. Sir if you think it is not possible for me to come at par with Mr. B.D. Bali in this span of life then there are many others who can do better than Mr. B.D. Bali.
Special Note : As per Supreme Court's Website Hon'ble Mr. Justice Markandey Katju in his speech at the first anniversary of the Madurai Bench of Madras High Court in which he said that the people have a right to criticize the judiciary as the people are Supreme in a Democracy, and all authorities including judge are servants of the people, was hailed by Mr. Fali Nariman, The Doyen of The Bar in a centre spread article in "Indian Express"
Now I am quoting an example : Shri Shastri took over the command after Shri Nehru and he proved better, Similarly Smt. Indira Gandhi took over after Shri Shastri and she also proved much better and similarly this process goes on which never ends despite many mistakes luck favoured Mr. B.D. Bali till no successor / substitute has come into existence, so persons like you are praising Mr. B.D. bali for the work done. We are seeing the global change & improvement in every sphere. Before thirty years a person who was going by cycle now is going by Car. Please let me know the credit goes to whom ? In fact this goes to the global change and improvement. If somebody could have come forward to replace him then everybody could have compared and admired the person who has done better for the community.
What you have said in your letter for this you can not be blamed because you are a person from army and you are taught to take orders or give orders and nothing else. But being a civilian I have every right to say what is right or wrong. So it is my sincere request that we should change as per the time & the situation and should eradicate Orthodoxy and shift towards modernisation.
In the last I request for cooperation, support & dedication for the betterment of the community. If you go through my letter you will find my suggestions in regards for regard to widows of the Mohyal Community and follow the rules framed of the GMS constitution and stop using ill words like "Barsati Mendak". etc. etc.
With regards
Yours sincerely
(Madhu Sudan Dutta)

To                                                     Dated : 25-08-2010
The President
General Mohyal Sabha (Regd.)
New Delhi
Subject : Follow the GMS Constitution & Respect to All Mohyals Community.
I Madhu Sudan Dutta (Life Member GMS) draw your goodself kind attention to some points & want to give suggestions on the above mentioned subject.
1.    I became life member of the GMS in the year 2005. At that time I was not provided the copy of Constitution of the GMS. Two days back I came to know from one of the Mohyal brother that Constitution of GMS is available on website.
2.    After going through it I am writing some of the reasons that how the managing committee is violating the rules of the Constitution of the GMS from 2004 to 2010 as framed.
3.    Managing Committee of the GMS was elected in March, 2004 & the next election of GMS was due in March, 2007 but the elections werepostponed till March, 2010 which is in violation of Article 13(c) (ii) of the GMS Constitution.
4.    Again the Election was postponed till June 2010 under article 13 (c) (iv). But you have started the election process in the month of July 2010 which is also a violation of Article 13 (c) (iv).
5.    As per Article no. 11 (c) (i) of the GMS Constitution Annual General meeting is ordinarily hold in the month of April every year, but this was not done  which is also a violation of Article 11 (c) (i).
6.    As per Article no. 14 (ix) the GMS President shall spend Rs. 25,000/- on a single item in special circumstances. But you have spent Rs. 25 lac on installation of Pratimas in the meditation hall of Mohyal Ashram, Haridwar & gave contract for Construction work  of Mohyal Ashram Vrindavan for Rs. 3.5 crores without floating tender in Mohayl Mitter (Magazine)
7.    I posted you a letter dated 01-11-2009 in which I mentioned about misuse of the GMS funds & loss to Mohyal Ashram, Haridwar & disrespect to Mohyal widows by office bearers GMS.
8.    Now during the elections Sh. Dharm Vir Mohan who is secretary General (GMS) wrote a letter to all mohyals in which they use words like "Barsati Mendak" to rest of 34 contestant other than B.D. Bali Ji's Penal "Our Team" Also they used these words for the widow lady contestant who was Ex- member of the GMS managing committee & wife of Ex-office bearer of GMS.
9.    From above points it is clear that you say something else and do something else. As you said in the annual general meeting of the GMS 2009 :–
"I am deeply concerned about the plight of our widow sisters, who not only need financial assistance, but emotional support as well. I appeal to all local Sabhas to involve themselves in this task and be ever available to wipe the tears of these unfortunate sisters".
Your office bearers, secretary-youth & cultural affairs and secretary general disrespected to the Mohyal widows. On the other side you are asking vote for the above office bearers.
10.    I Once again request your goodself & other winning contestants of the GMS election to please follow the GMS constitution & respect the whole Mohyal Biradari.
11.    I assure you that I have no bad intention and simply want to see the progress of General Mohyal Sabha (Regd.) in the right manner. In the end I once again request your goodself to forgive me if I am wrong anywhere.

Thanking you
Yours faithfully

मुसाहिब से उलझ कर मुस्कराना मेरी फितरत है , 
मुझे नाकामियों पर अश्क बहाना नहीं आता /
निगाहें जिसकी जम जाती हैं मुस्तिक्बिल के चहरे पर , 
उसे मांझी की बेरहमी को दोहराना नहीं आता //

Datta Mohyals from Jaffarwaldattan Village


I am writing here names for the family tree of Mohyals of Jaffarwal Dattan, a village in Pakistan. I realized later that there is one village, "DattaKhel," in the Federally Administered Tribal Area (FATA) in Pakistan. Many Mohyals Datta from Jaffarwal Dattan is still remembering days of partition of Hindustan. We remember many nights and many deaths. We remember terror, murders, rapes of women and children, bleeding elders, young children, women, etc. You are welcome to correct it and inform me to help this knowledge of History. I can add like this any information shared by You. One can add a page for Kanjrurdattan also. or any other name of Mohyal Datta Villages.
Mohyal names are written by Late Sardar Iqbal Singh Datta and B.L.Mohan. Dilip Singh Datta gave me to reproduce here.

Mohyals are vibrant human beings. Mohyals sacrifice their lives for a cause. One can see the names of family trees noted by Dilip Singh Datta. It was compiled by Late Sardar Iqbal Singh Datta and reproduced here by Jaipal Singh Datta from Jaffarwal Dattan.

Jai Jawan Jai Kisan

I read one Article on web site. I wanted to copy and write here. But I could not do.
So read this link. This link is of Bharat-Rakshak. As name indicates, it is showing information about Indian Army. I liked it. I hope you may also like. May All Mohyals have son like Puneet Nath Datt.
I tried to copy and this time I could do so. Please read and pray God to have son like Puneet Nath Datta2nd Lt. Puneet Nath Datt
Size: 10 items
2nd Lieutenant Puneet Nath Datt, 1/11 Gorkha Rifles, was a born soldier who belonged to the illustrious Datt family of Mohyals, the militant Brahmin race of India. The Datts derive their lineage from Dronacharya, the military tutor of the Pandava Dynasty. The Mohyals have a chequered history of soldering right from the medieval times, having taken part in the battles of Karbala in Iraq and in Afghanistan. Right up to 1946, there existed a regiment of Mohyals Brahmins, commanded by Lieutenant General Kunhiraman Palat Candeth, PVSM, a retired soldier of yore. Dicky, as he was popularly known, was the son of Late Major Pramod Nath Datt who also retired from the 1/11 Gorkha Rifles. He was the grandson of Late Shri Prem Nath Datt, a leading advocate of Jaipur and the family were permanent residents of Rajasthan. Besides the dynastic military background, he got the inspiration to join the Indian Army from his maternal side also in that his grandfather, Colonel S N C Bakshi, retired from the Army Ordnance Corps (AOC) and his maternal uncle, Commander V K C Bakshi, Indian Navy. Born at Jodhpur on 29 April 1973, he had a brilliant academic career and took keen interest in sports and extra curricular activities. He did his schooling from St. Bethney's School in Darjeeling, from St Joseph's Academy in Dehradun, from St. Xavier's School in Jaipur and finally completed his class XII from Tagore Public School in Jaipur. He excelled in football and rowing whilst in school. Throughout his childhood, his ambition was to join the Indian Army. As a little boy, he used to don his grandfather's or father's uniform, complete with the Gorkha Hat and pretend to be an officer. As a child, he used to mix very freely with the Gorkha jawans of his father's unit and could speak fluent Gorkhali. He was dearly loved by the jawans or 'Dajus', meaning elder brother, as he addressed them and to whom he was known as their favourite 'naani', meaning little one.

While still at High School, Dicky diverted his full attention towards his goal in life, i.e. joining the Indian Army by preparing for entry in the renowned National Defence Academy. Through his grit, determination and hard work, he secured entry in the NDA in December 1991. At the NDA, he had a brilliant record and due to his proficiency in both academic & military subjects as well as outstanding officer like qualities, he was awarded the coveted rank of 'Cadet Sergeant Major' for his squadron - 'Echo'. As CSM, he won the prized Cross Country Shield for his squadron. He was also awarded three gold medals in rowing. Due to his initiative and leadership qualities, he was famous among his comrades as the 'josh-type'. So determined and full of zeal was he to join his father's regiment that throughout his stay at the NDA, he used to proudly display the Gorkha crest, always polished, on his study table. He used to write back home that his spirits soared whenever he met a Gorkha officer. Regimental to the core, he used to make it a point, before and after commissioning, to go out of the way to meet any serving or retired Gorkha officer about whom he got any information. He was a dare devil and had indomitable and dashing spirit. While posted at Himachal Pradesh, he rode his Enfield Bullet motorcycle from Palampur to Delhi non-stop for 12 hours. Deeply religious, he used to pray at the Hanuman Temple every Tuesday. Whilst at Himachal Pradesh, also known as the land of Gods, he paid pilgrimage on his Bullet to all nearby temples. He was a dutiful and loving son. He showered all his love and affection on his mother and grandparent. He was the idol of his sister and a father figure in her life. He was a trusted comrade to his friends, always ready to come to anyone's rescue and help in complete disregard to his personal interest, safety or convenience. He was full of ambition, keen to develop his military competence and was a keen reader of military history. He was an avid reader of all current political and military subjects on which he could speak and discuss with authority.

Within a short span of 1½ years after his commissioning, Dicky successfully completed the Young Officers' Course, Commando's Course, and Fire Fighting Course. He also passed his promotion exam 'Part B' in the first attempt. He was a member of the United Services Institute (USI) and the Defence Services Officers Institute (DSOI). The USI is a literary forum, while the DSOI is more of a social club. From the information gleaned from his personal diary, it is revealed that his aim in life was three fold. First and foremost was to attain the highest standard of professional proficiency. Within 1½ years, he passed a number of courses as mentioned, while still discharging his normal regimental duties. He was a committed professional soldier and very proud of his arm and service. As revealed in his diary, he had charted out his career by planning to do Para Training, a National Security Guards (NSG) course, and Staff College and ultimately to command the 1/11 Gorkha Rifles to which his father belonged. He also aspired to be awarded with the Chief of the Army Staff's commendation and a gallantry award while as a Captain. Secondly, he wanted to use his knowledge and training by single mindedly involving himself in complete eradication of militant forces and influences working against the interest and integrity of the nation for which he had dedicated his life. He had adopted the motto 'Death Before Dishonour'. The third on his list was to provide solace to his mother, Mrs Anita Datt and to provide support & happiness to his doting sister, Divya. Mrs Datt was heart-broken on account of the loss of her husband Major Pramod Nath Datt, while Dicky was undergoing training at NDA. Dicky also dreamt of building an exact replica of the family ancestral bungalow at Jaipur, which they had recently sold. During his training period and even while he was committed in operations against terrorists; he never forgot to call his mother, sister and grand-parents to inquire about their welfare and to tell them not to worry about him. During his short service as a commissioned officer, wherever he was posted in connection with training, courses and other commitments, he always picked up gifts and curios particular to the place and sent appropriate presents to all members of his family. Even on the eve of his last operation, he called his mother to inform her that he was sending six crates of fruit for distribution to friends and relatives. Feelings of the family can be well imagined when the crates were duly delivered after the last rites of the brave soldier were performed with full military honours.

Dicky achieved the supreme aim of his life of serving his motherland, when he took part in an encounter that panned out as a cordon & search operation on specific information from a source cultivated by him regarding presence of foreign militants in a building in the Naushera locality of Srinagar. The operation started in wee hours of 20 July 1997 and the building was completely surrounded by 0400 hours. The militants were secure within the three storied building located in a thickly populated and congested area. At daybreak when the terrorists found that they were surrounded, instead of surrendering to the Indian Army, they resorted to indiscriminate firing. Utmost restraint had to be exercised while trying to liquidate the onslaught so as to avoid any damage to innocent civilian life and property in the vicinity of the building. One militant visualizing the hopeless situation ran out firing on the search party. Seeing the militant firing on his troops, he ordered his troops to take cover and with utter disregard to personal safety sprang up and shot the militant in an eye-to-eye encounter. Meanwhile sensing that the militants were trying to escape, he showed exemplary presence of mind & initiative and maneuvered his position to block the rear exit of the building. Displaying indomitable courage and guts, he shot down another militant who was trying to escape. The remaining militants inside the building meanwhile continued firing on our troops and as a result of which he was seriously wounded. But he did not give in and maintained his sustained crusade against foreign mercenaries and taking courage in both hands, lobbed a grenade inside the building, killing the remaining militants and destroying a considerable amount of the enemy's arms & ammunition. Almost single handedly destroying the enemy, our hero attained martyrdom and immortalized himself by carving a niche in the annals of his Regiment and the Indian Army's history. For his bravery and in recognition of the initiative and dare devilry displayed in the pursuit of his mission to eliminate militancy from the face of his motherland, 2nd Lieutenant Puneet Nath Datt was awarded the Ashok Chakra (posthumous), the country's highest gallantry award in peace time on 15 August 1997.

What those who interacted with Dicky say about him...
Complied by Captain Vikramjeet Singh

"A thorough soldier."

"You can't be that good."

"He was General material."

"Echo - 87 ka to ek hi tha - Puneet…."

"Sir, aap hi batao, kaya vo pagal nahin tha?"

"Sir, he was our role model; our inspiration."

"Nobody could face Major K.K. Arun. He did, and that too, in style."

"Sir, I am also from Echo squadron, or rather, Puneet Datt's squadron."

"He and I always had a clash. It was like a clash of the Titans. I salute him from deep inside my heart."

"A very nice guy. I don't know how and why I still remember him, when we all have a tendency to forget."

"As Company Sergeant Major, he was the godfather of the squadron. He shielded us from the seniors of other squadrons."

"I remember him because he showed doubts to the ACA, in NDA, in front of the whole academy and stood for what is right."

"As Company Sergeant Major, he demanded only one thing from us - to win the X-country. And, when we did that, he asked us all to relax."

"During the squadron cross – country practices, he would always come in the fourth enclosure. But, on the final day, he would finish in the second enclosure. How and from where did he get the strength to do so, we never understood."

CSM Puneet Nath Datt reports sick. On being asked his ailment by the Duty Medical Officer, Datt replies, "I do not want any category Sir, I have no problem."

"Why the hell did you report sick?" the doctor asks. Datt answers, "Sir today is the final inspection for the interior Economy Trophy. I wanted to miss drill so that I could supervise the finishing touches."

"How dare you report sick for such a reason? And you have the audacity to tell me this?" yells the DMO. Unflinchingly Datt replies, "Sir at least I told you the truth."

0819 Hours, 26 January 1998 - Rajpath, New Delhi
by Sub Lieutenant Kartik Murthy, Indian Navy

As the thin and frail woman stood facing the President of India, the noise and excitement of the Republic Day Parade faded into the background. Only the Tricolour stood out fluttering in the cold winter day. With stoic grace, she stood as the citation read out for her 24 year-old son, 2nd Lieutenant Puneet Nath Datt reverberated across the crowded Rajpath and beamed into the homes of millions of people across the nation. He was awarded the Ashoka Chakra, posthumously for the most conspicuous act of bravery, exemplary leadership and supreme sacrifice. As the President stepped forward to hand over the medal, the people watched in silence. And for one brief shining moment, the nation was one, elevated by the courage of a single man, and united in pride & grief for a young son of India who died following the Armed Forces' favourite aphorism "Death Before Dishonour".

It was indeed my proud privilege to have been very closely associated with this man, my hero. As a junior in his squadron, I always saw in him a resolute courage that stemmed out of his confidence in himself and the ideals he believed in. It was only because he had the courage to tell the DMO (Duty Medical Officer) the actual reason for reporting sick, it was only because he had the courage to run cross-country with high fever so that he wouldn't let the squadron down in its quest for a fourth consecutive glider, it was only because he had the guts to lose his band defending a junior in front of the Commandant who offered him his appointment in exchange of that junior's name, it was only because he had the moral courage to stand up for what he thought was right, that 2nd Lieutenant Puneet Nath Datt was not found wanting in physical courage, when his country asked of him the supreme sacrifice.

Family Tree of Mohyals and Address book of Mohyals with Photos

Wanted Mohyals
I wanted to write Family Tree of all Mohyals to know my roots. I need pieces of information or a family tree of many Mohyals. I spent money and time serving. I realized that I can not complete alone. I need your blessings and help. Please help me and send information by post or Email to Please note that this information shall be available on the Internet and available to all Mohyals and Non-Mohyals. I shall be completing Family trees and the Address book of Mohyals with Photos.
Read the following

1.0 Family Tree of Mohyals
I went to Haridwar. My Purohit has shown me one book where names of my family elders were written. I liked it. I gave my Purohit Rs 500. I thought of writing the same information on my website. So I started web site known as Mohyal World. This site aims to create a Mohyal Family Tree of all Mohyals living in many cities and countries. I am not a software engineer. So I tried to develop a system to write a family tree. While writing, I concluded that the Male chart should be written, as women are the only incubator. Women do not have Gotra. So I wrote the family tree of males.
But I realized that no family is complete without Matri Shakti. So I had to start writing Female Tree also.
The family tree could not be completed without joining male and female charts. So I thought of writing a Marriage Chart also.

2.0 Address Book of Mohyals
I was writing addresses of Mohyals on Mohyal World. Soon I realized that it shall be too cumbersome to write all this information on one site. This site may be overloaded. So I started a new Website known as Mohyal Sabha. I wanted to write addresses of all Mohyals. To write all this, I started writing the first names and addresses of Presidents and Secretaries of Mohyal Sabha of each city. Later on, I shall write names and addresses of Mohyals living in that area. So read Mohyal Sabha for addresses of Mohyals in their respective cities. I have also added links to addresses found on General Mohayal Sabha.

3.0 Mohyals can share all information on these websites. Mohyals from different cities and countries are welcome to write and send the information for Mohyals. You can become Associate Editors, Advisors, Members of the Editorial Board or our representatives in those cities. Only you should have a flare to write and take a photograph and use the internet to send at the following address. Please write to
I am also available on Twitter as Mohyal World and on Facebook as Jaipal Datta or Bhai Mati Das.

Jai Mohyal
