What is the meaning of Khatri Chhetri that pepple use as surname KC in Nepal?

The surname Khatri Chhetri in actual is the misinterpretation of the original name Katyuris Kshatriyas, which eventually changed a long time back . So, "Katyuri" changed into "Khatri" and "Kshatriyas" changed into "Chhetri" .
In the ancient time , the chettris were known as Khas .
Now i am going to prove our origin , which i dugged out of the world wide web pages and in reference to some of the books that i had a luck to have a deep glimpse at .
People of Nepal who don't like us had been making a lot of rumours about our origin like : Chhetri's of Nepal are the Aryans of India who slowly moved to Nepal , sometimes they link us with the Indian's which used to hurt me a lot , both mentally and psycologically . These all assumptions were based upon "THE ARYAN INVASION THEORY" (I'll write about this theory in my next blog soon and write about the failure/non-exsistance of this theory too). It is the Aryan Invasion Theory that had denied the indigenoous origin and evolution of Nepal's Khas religion,culture and heritage. So the failure of "Aryan Invasion Theory" proves that Khas(Chhetri) of nepal are the people who has got a embedded history of their forefathers in nepal, which is merely discussed .
On the other hand , Aryans are described as blue-eyed , white "Aryans",a northern European physio-type , nomadic and brutal which doesn't match with the characterists of Khas. Whereas , Khas are described as usually tall, handsome, fair complexioned, with long head , vertical forehead, fine nose(which people of nepal call chuche naak), hazed eyes, well cut hair and proportioned features , and kind , helpful and cheerful by nature . This is the characteric difference between the Aryan and tha Khas people of nepal .
So all the wobbling i did in the immediate above two paragraphs is just to symbolise that the notation that Khas are Aryans was always baseless, today on the wikipedia or anywhere on the web , you can find that the Aryan invasion theory was wrong , and hence proved that all the Khas are the indigenous people of Nepal . And all the Khas(Chhetri) guys , if someone picks you up calling you Aryan -linking with indians , this is what you need to say , or direct those (little knowledge is dangerous) type of people to this blogspot of mine which i have only created for all the Khas people of Nepal.
Also, in the history , most population amongst the people of Nepal's mid-mountainous area were Khas. Top antropologists like Gerald D Berreman, Dor Bahadur Bistha and Dinest Prasad Saklani have mentioned in their research papers that the Central Himalayan bend(mid-western to far-western part of Nepal were occupied by Khas from the ancient times. The Khas had been dominant inhabitants in the hills of Central Himalaya and they played important role in the history of the egion by establishing many independents dynasties ruling over the area in the "early medieval times".
That's all for this post guys , if you have got any supporting and interesting facts that you know about Khas(Chhetris) of nepal , then please post it on this blogspot. More to come in future , in this blog page , so keep tuning in whenever possible . Jai Nepal.


So, this blog is my attempt to let all the KC's (Khatri Chettris) around the world to know about our origin , which i was unaware of before i started digging out this fact about our ancestors .
Come together , join me in this blogspot and we can rebuild up our , about to be forgotten history of our kind .

  1. I am sorry about the title of this blog when i published it , i typed it real fast without looking at the screen , but just looking at the hard copy , so in the title there is a word mis-spelled which should be "PEOPLE" instead of "PEEPLE". Hope you don't mind, the might be other spell errors and I am really sorry about that . Enjoy .

  11. Great information but would you acknowledge me what is the difference between Khatri caste, Chhetri caste and Khatri Chhetri caste? Or are they all same?

  12. I think the stem of todays's wider chhetri descendants is Khas. Khatris are mixed blood of Aryans and Non Aryans categorised as Chhetri in accordance with the then Warna System. Khatris will paternally find their root to Bramin and maternally to Khas or non Aryans. Just my thought. Krishna dai, please correct me if I am wrong.

  13. Some people have misconception...that our far Western people of nepal and Kumaouni and Garwali have same cast...same language tone... even same culture like gaura parba...that's why they think us indian origin ...but its totally wrong ...because in the ancient time , there was no any country like modern india...india formed just before some decade (1950).. and english people invaded kumaou garwal just before 68 years ago...now think before british invasion who were ruled in that area? The true answer is Gorkhali nepali..first ruled kamao garwal by katyuri dynasty which was also belong to khas Chhetri community of nepal...it was very early time ...then thakuri chand's started rulling who were also khas Chhetri ..and after all shah dynasty united all of the fringe khas kingdom from west to east ...that's all.. ex- pm of nepal Lokendra bahadur Chanda belong to that family ..In farwesten Region of Nepal , there large number thakuri people ..
    So kumao gadawal was part of ancient Doti raikas kingdom ..then it became part of greater nepal...that's why we are indigenous people of Nepal ..

  14. im sorry to blogger but the reality is little different. katyuri kingdom was a khaskingdom based on farwest nepal and KUMAU of india now. the decedent of katyurikingdome are still therein farwest but they are not khatri or kc . but they are Khas chhetri. they are not popular because of chand power and later the gorkha power. there are. 70percent khas chhetriin farwest. so it is better to talk about khas chhetri insted aryan or khas matter.
