110. Tabkat-i-Nasiri कोच और मेघ
















तबकात इ नासिरी के सन्दर्भ में तीन जातियों का उल्लेख एक पोस्ट में किया था। उनमे थारु, कोच और मेघ बताई गई थी। आर जी लथम ने एथ्नोलोजी ऑफ़ ब्रिटिश डेपेंदेंसी में एक और खुलासा किया कि कोच लोग अपने को कोच कहते है पर दूसरे लोग उन्हें मेघ कहते है। जो भी हो, एक बात ध्यान देने योग्य यह उभरती है कि कोच जाति और मेघ जाति मे निश्चित रूप से प्राचीन काल में सम्बन्ध रहा है और उनका मूल एक ही रहा होगा। तभी ऐसी बातें की जाती रही होगी। आज मेघ और कोच जाति अलग अलग है। दोनों ही जातियों की स्थिति निम्न ही है। उनके रीति रिवाज और आचार व्यवहार का एतिहासिक सन्दर्भ में अन्वेषण करके उनकी एक जातीय सम्बन्धता को जाना जा सकता है। जहाँ मेघ नहीं है, वहां कोच जाति बहुतायत से है। कुछ जगहों पर दोनों है व अलग है। यह सब हिंदूवादी ब्राह्मणी कारण से ही हुआ लगता है।



Tararam Gautam यह किसी वलविर नामक मेघ की पुत्री हिल्की/सिल्की या य्हहिल का है, जो हुमायूँ और अकबर के मंत्री बैरम/बेहराम खान के पुत्र को ब्याही गयी। वलविर भी बाद में मुस्लमान बन गया। हुमायु की एक बार इसने जान बचायी थी। नदी में डूबने से बचाया था। शेष HT में पोस्ट किया जायेगा।

Col Tilak Raj- Yeh baat aur khoz ki maang karti hai.

Tararam Gautam- And story goes so on------

Bharat Bhushan- Taken to HT.

Rattan Gottra- Economic history of India by Dr. Gadgil also reveals to us such miserable plight of our people particularly during major famines. Dr. BR Ambedkar also confirms such conditions.

Tararam Gautam
The information that Ali Mech(Meg), who was converted to Islam, was Bakhtyar’s principle guide in the so-called Tibbet-expedition and that after the disastrous retreat and recrossing of the mighty river, most likely the Brahmaputra. The Mech(Megh) tribes had assisted Bakhtyar for a safe return to Devikot are indeed pregnant with significance. It highlights on the one hand that the Mech(Megh) tribe was an important political and social element in the reign at the time as the other tribe namely the Koch were. On the other hand, the nvading army was not considered by the Mech(Megh) as prejudicial to their political and social interest. That many of them had accepted Islam without being compelled to do so suggest that (1) conversion was not always forcefully done; and that (2) conversion was not induced by Hindu caste opprobrium. Minhaj Uddin us Siraj appeared to be particularly interested in describing military strategies. If one goes along the line of narration, given by Minhaj Uddin us Siraj, it appears that Bakhtyar Khalji had used both military powers and strategic deception to conquer Nadia. The strongest point in his attack was the element of surprise which he fruitfully employed to outwit Lakshman Sen, the ruler of Bengal. It was perhaps with the same strategy of speed and surprise that he intended to conduct his so-called Tibettian expedition. He might have overlooked in his over enthusiasm the difficulties of the terrain. Though the Bakhtyar Khalji’s objective was to conquer Tibet and on that score Minhaj Uddin us Siraj might have faithfully recorded it but what is doubtful is identification of the place where Bakhtyar Khalji could have gone.
