actually the word would be which vansh i am .
the question is why is some interested in my caste. I left caste system way behind me . I was a indian first than anything else. I have never been asked so many questions about my caste from the day i was born. So let me know why these kind of question?

Sorry, I didn't associate it with caste, just family.

Just friendly curiosity, no specific reason.

I recently met someone here from the city of Kudra.

I hope you will forgive me any unintentional breach of etiquette.

Well my family came from Rajasthan to Bihar where they had there kingdom for centuries and then he gave away everything for the fight of independence. He gave way the whole kingdom to the farmers so India can become one . This is my family name n deeds which I am proud of. We now have no kingdom and I am happy about it because if had everything I would not have worked hard to be here in US and be a main designer for all the Football player neither would have worked for tiger conservation all my life when I was in India

That is a great history.

I am reminded of the king of Bhutan forcing democracy on his reluctant country.
Sometimes people do extraordinary things.

Tiger conservation is a wonderful cause.
I have always loved the big cats.

A friend of mine was raised with a tiger.
That may explain some things about him.

My history is mostly scots-irish, with french, german, etc thrown in.
Our family were kings in the 8th century in ireland, but the last name doesn't exist there now, so there may have been political problems.
Immigrated to the usa 200 or so years ago.

Of course, it's all sort of arbitrary when you go back enough generations.
In 18 generations, you have a blood connection to every person on earth, I'm told.
Even relatives are more about the family you choose.

That's what I know about anyway.
We used to joke about being related to everyone in the small towns our family is from.
When people started tracing these things, it turned out to be true.

I was persuaded to come to burning man in 1995 or so, by someone that hasn't been back since 1997.
Says everything was ruined by then.
Couldn't make it for many years, so the burning man I came for was long gone.
I had these connections and awareness of so much going on, that was history when I got there.
It's a bit like two lives.
I had known some people ten years when I hit the playa.

I came for the art cars.
I go back for the people I meet.

And I like BIG FIRE too!

I'm missing this year, because I seem to have decided it will be more fun to move everything I still own, twice in 100 degree heat instead.

I like to get out there before the city is finished, and be part of that.
Maybe that's why I do it?

Your guess is as good as mine.

While we're rounding-up, I'll be wearing an Indian-made dishdasha during the day ...
May your deeds return to you tenfold,
