What is Rajputana ?

`Rajputana' means `Land of Rajputs' in Rajasthani, it is an indigenous term for `Rajputstan'. Rajputana has been a historical reality since the Sakas entered into India in the centuries following the birth of Christ. They established a large Sakastan which included at its peak the Indus-Ganges Valley and western India. The locus of Sakastan, and those regions which have best preserved their Saka heritage, are however, the Rajputana and Gujarat sub-regions. Rajputana was never part of the Indo-Aryan dominated regions of Maharashtra or of Aryavarta. The Saks formed a distinct race with its own civilisation and religion. The Rajputs are also not `Hindu', we are instead Sauras or Sun-worshippers.

Rajputana thus embodies the supreme Saka ideals. It is the firm conviction of the RLF that the preservation of Saka ideals requires an independant Rajputstan. For the last fifty years, the incredible damage done to the Saka heritage of Rajputs has been immense and incalculable. Indeed, the Rajput culture is in grave risk of being wiped out from the face of the Earth. Only independance can lead to a resurrection of the Rajput civilization.
