I am slightly envious of my wife’s family who are able to trace back their ancestors to a small town in Dorset, England, in the early 1600′s. The English, or indeed British, are very detailed record-makers and tracing back one’s lineage is a bit of a cinch.
Being of Indian descent, things are slightly more complicated. It’s not so easy to trace ancestors. As I have been informed there are, apparently so, wise Brahmins who keep memory based registers of deaths of people of certain castes at the cremation sites, but tracking them down from where I am based in Europe, is no mean feat.
So, that brings us conveniently to the raison d’etre to this site. Given the name itself is “relatively” rare (well, I thought it was until I did a search for the surname on facebook and LinkedIn), I thought to create a website that nets anyone else who may be looking up anything to do with the name Chhokra.
This website is a work in progress, so please bear with me and if you have any suggestions, please feel free to send a message to me via this website.
