Then read the information gathered from our elders, internet books etc.

Ancient Political Position
Our village is in Gujarat state. In history books there is a description of the kings who ruled over Gujarat in ancient times. So we can guess that our village must have been under their rule.
From “ the history of ancient India – part 2we know that around 840 A.D., there was rule of Gurjar Pratikari Dynasty king from their name. Our state is known as Gujarat. Its king was MIHIR BHOJ after that in 940 A.D. there was a Rule of Solanki Dynasty on us which continued till 1242 AD. During this period Arab Muslim traders & with them Sufi saints entered Gujarat from the parts of Gujarat like Surat & Bharuch. Respecting their invitation our ancestors accepted Islam. There is reason to believe for our village that we have not accepted Islam under the influence of Sultanat but at the invitation of revered saints. The basis for this is Mazars of saints around our village. During this period many mosques were also built. After 1242 there was a rule of Vaghela dynasty. To them sultan Alauddin Khilji of Delhi Sultanat defeated n 1297 & established first government of Muslims in Gujarat. Alauddin appointed Alapkhan (Shaikhji) as a governor. This series of appointments of governor continue for 100 years. But king named Taimoor lang attacked Delhi so the grip of Delhi sultanat lessened over Gujarat leading to chaos. And Gujarat disintegrated into small Subas due to revolts. This continue dtill 1572 AD and Mughal king akbar attacked Gujarat & defeated NAWAB named ZAFAR SHAH. Thus Gujarat came under the grip of Mughals and remained under them till 1751. After the death of Aurangzeb in 1707 the foundation of Mughal authorities weakened and Anarchi spread in Gujarat seeing that Maratha Peshwas & leaders attacked Gujarat & captured Dabhai first in 1731 and then won Vadodara estate. And spread their empire by attacking other regions. Thus our village came under the Maratha rule of Gayakwad of Vadodara state and merged in undivided India in 1947. And we came uder democracy. The king who spread Gayakwadi empire was Damaji Rao. There were total 12 Gayakwadi kings till the Independence. Longest rule among tham was of maharaja SayajiRao Gayakwad third from 1857 to 1939. After that his son Pratap Singh Gayakwad remained ruler till 1947 & as a Saliyana King till 1951.
In 1951 our king overspent in the state so Indian government deposed him and appointed datehsingh rao gayakwad. In the end, Indira Gandhi stopped saliyana of 512 states during her rule in 1971 so the indirect of monarchy ended.
Today Gayakwadi descendents Ranjit sinh rao and Sangram Sinh are alive & reside in Mumbai. And their sister Mrunalini Devi pawar is chancellor of M.S.University of Baroda.
Modern political history
After independence our village was village of Mumbai state whose first chief minister was Morarji desai. A movement started in Mumbai for its division on the basis of Marathi Gujarati language – under the banner of “United Maharastra movement “ but the Nehru Government did not budge. So to pressurise Governement, the then finance minister Chintamani Deshmukh resigned. He got moral support of Marathi public so the struggle gained momentum. At last on 1 may 1960 Mumbai state was divided so Maharastra & Gujarat were formed. its first chief Minister late Sivraj Mehta.
Our village was a village of velachcha Taluka till 1921 in a gayakwadi rule. Then it become a border village of Mangrol Taluka. It was so also in Gayakwadi Rule. The proof of being a village of Gayakwadi border is stone of Gayakwadi border in the form of Salehji near Vadlawala bridge in block no 134 on the west of Railway km 303 pole no 9/10 which can be seen even today.

Natural calamities
The earthquake : Bureau of Indian standards has divided the country into five zones on the basis of possible intensity of earthquake. According to that, zone 1 is safest & zone 5 is the most unsafe. Our village comes over zone 2. As per the research of Geologist we are on the plate of Indian sub-continent which pushes torsi plate so there is an earthquake. The fault line of this Indian subcontinent plate is near Kutch on the west & near Assam on the east which Hundreds of miles away from our village. So there is no earthquake in our village. Only its tremors reach. By the grace of Allah our village has not seen destruction by earthquake in the past years till today. In 1970 in the morning, there were tremors but there was no damage in the same way in the night in 1994 there were tremors of earthquake whose epicentre was Latur (Maharashtra).

By that we felt as if we were sitting in the boat. These tremors were severe which caused no loss of life but houses, light-poles , minaret of mosque had been shaken very much. It cause lot of damage to the minaret of mosque. Beside that the wall of houses had fallen. The biggest damage was that ceiling of houses were cracked. So that in the next monsoon ceilings leaked & everyone had to fit metal sheets on roofs. Besides that water tanks had also leaked because of tremors of earth quake the utensils had fallen from the shelf. When tremors were going on, sayaji nagari express was passing from our village. Eye witness said that it was also shaking.

People ate government distributed Kodara & left cattle to the panjara pol or Alya bet. This famine had struck in vikram samvat 1956. So it was called chhappaniyo “Dukal”.
