Family History of Sumith Kumar Puri - The King
My Immediate Family is the Last or the Current Generation of the real Puruvanshi clan of Hinduism, from the lineage of King Porus. As per all Documentation currently available to me, It is an accepted fact that the Bharatvanshi clan of Hinduism had merged with the Puruvanshi clan long years ago - to create a single clan. Both Puruvansh and Bharatvansh in turn belong to Chandravanshi or the Lunar Race of Hinduism. King Porus is considered the patronymic of the Lunar Race of Hinduism. There are multiple other lineages, which claim descent from King Porus; as he is truly accepted as one of the Greatest Kings from this Race of Hinduism; along with others such as Emperor Bharata and Emperor Ashoka (Solar Race).

One of the Greatest Battles fought in this country and, arguably, in the world is the Battle of Hydaspes (Jhelum) - that was fought in the year 326 BC. This battle led to many outcomes and if analyzed further, to a New World Order. The long term outcomes were not just territorial but right upto to the extent of origin of religions. Most countries in Central Asia and some even in Europe start tracing their history right from this time. Some countries entirely prove their existence as long term results of this battle. The most important religions in the world at that point in time were Judaism, Hinduism and Zoroastrianism. (There were other Hindu originated religions such as Jainism and Buddhism).

Alexander the Great was on his undefeated march from Greece, conquering all lands, until he came to the doorstep of India. Considering the battle readiness and the huge size of his consolidated army, he would have easily continued on this conquest. It can be easily said that he would have conquered whole of the sub-continent as also other neighboring lands, with considerable ease. Some of the Indian Kings submitted to his superiority and supremacy, which only made his task much easier. The only warrior who not only met him with great courage, but also stopped his advance into India is King Porus.

I am providing some of the most important documentary artifacts from noteworthy Indian Historians below that provide information on how the lineages continued and survived from the Ancient Times. This is as per their Research and Efforts.

Buddha Prakash, Professor of History and of Ancient Indian History, Culture and Archaeology, Director of the Institute of Indic Studies (1964); in his book Political and Social Movement in Ancient Punjab states:

"The Purus settled between the Asikni and the Parusni, whence they launched their onslaught on the Bharatas, and after the initial rebuff in the Dasarajna War, soon regrouped and resumed their march on the Yamuna and the Sarasvati and subsequently merged with the Bharatas, Some of their off-shoots lingered on in the Punjab and one of their scions played a notable part in the events of the time at Alexander's invitation. They probably survived in the Punjab under the name of Puri, which is a sub-caste of the Khatris."

Damodar Dharmananda Kosambi in his 1966 book Ancient India: A History of its Culture and Civilisation wrote:

"The cause of the Ten-Kings battle was that the Ten tried to divert the river Parushni. This is a stretch of the modern Ravi which, however, changed its course several times. Diversion of the waters of the Indus system is still a cause for angry recriminations between India and Pakistan. The 'greasy-voiced' Purus, though enemies of Sudas, were not only Aryans but closely related to the Bharatas. Later tradition even makes the Bharatas a branch of the Purus. The same clan priests in the Rigveda impartially call down curses and blessings upon the Purus in diverse hymns, which shows that the differences between them and the Bharatas were not permanent. The quarrel was of another sort than that between Aryan and non-Aryan. The Purus remained in the Harappa region and expanded their rule over the Panjab in later times. It was they who put up the strongest fight against Alexander in 327 B.C. The modern Panjabi surname Puri may possibly originate with the Puru tribe."

D. D. Kosambi (1996) in his book An introduction to the study of India history writes:

"The Puru tribe seems to have been as Aryan as any. It survived in the Mahabharata story, and to Alexander's time (perhaps in the modern Punjabi surname Puri)."

Naval Viyogi (1996) in his book The founders of Indus valley civilization and their later history writes:

"It was they who put up the strongest fight against Alexander in 327 B.C. The modern Punjabi surname Puri may possibly originate with the Puru tribe."

Damodar Dharmanand Kosambi, Brajadulal Chattopadhyaya say:

"The Puru army may have been wiped out altogether by Alexander and the Mauryans, but the greater number of Purus must have survived, it was the most numerous of the tribes then in the Punjab. Is it too fanciful to trace the modern Punjabi surname Puri to the Puru tribe? There are other survivals of even greater age, e.g. the Hariyupiya of RV. 6.27.5, which must be modem Harappa."
