Somavanshiya Sahasrarjun Kshatriya Samaj

Welcome to Somavanshiya Sahasrarjun Kshatriya Samaj of Surat (SSKS), an Digital Media which provides us with a wide range of information about the origins of our organization. The SSKS organization is founded with the aim of the promotion of the religious, social, educational and cultural exchange between the SSK peoples of the Surat, South Gujarat, Gujarat and India. Its main goals are to unite, preserve, protect and promote social, economic and educational contacts of samaj members residing in Surat as quoted by Mr. Dipak Pandurangsa Pakhale. These goals would be best achieved by bringing everyone together, by establishing communication and bonding the SSK Samaj families living in Surat, South Gujarat, Gujarat and India. And that is the reason we have our own Digital Media to communicate with our people more efficiently.

This article is presented to familiarize young readers to our ancestor Sahasrarjun. His name is part of our community acronym Somavanshiya Sahasrarjun Kshatriya ( S S K). It is a common understanding among the SSKyans that the name Sahasrarjun refers to emperor Arjun, who possessed a thousand hands. These hands were blessed by God Dattatreya for his deep devotion. His dedication to protect the poor and weak subjects, from the social outcasts or adharmies. The word Sahasra virtually means a thousand. For many it means the dominance of emperor Arjun over the evil.
