Heritage and History Rohtak City - Rohtak (Haryana) Series
Chapter 2 - Jat Bhawan, Sector 1 - Rohtak
Pronunciation: रोतत्ग (Hariyanvi), रोहतक (Hindi), Rohtak (English)

Motive: To depict empirical saga of cultural-democratic-historical-artistic laurel and heritage of Haryanvi villages/estates.
Concept and Design: Author had created the concept based on the palace and haveli architecture that Maharaja Suraj Mal had commsioned in Bharatpur and Deeg in Rajasthan. The facade was copied from Raja Nahar Singh's haveli at Ballabhgarh. Author had taken the then office bearers of Jat Mahasabha to these places and strongly recommended to emulate the old designs.

Architect of Bhawan: The builder (Jat Sabha, Rohtak) had commissioned a Muslim architect from Agra as Chief mason. When the Gajaprastha style canopy above the facade could not be properly designed author had consulted the Mansara - the ancient Hindu treatise on architecture, and provided the mathematical calculation that could help shape it in proper proportion in comparison with the other wings and sections of the facade.

“Say no to Dowry”
Eliminate this sex inequality!
Human purchases vegetables, cattle even all routine courses in hand to hand give and take deal then why this blunder mistake in marriages that only girl’s side will pay and that too in double costs in terms of daughter and dowry both? Lets stop this male dominance and female discrimination. - NH
“Adore the girl child”
Say no to female foeticide!
If you can’t bear the birth of a girl child in your family, you should not expect a bride for your son. Invaders are gone, lets bring  back our divine period of Vedic times for our females. - NH

Keeping the system of discussion alive!
