The word “Raj” mean Royal. The first mention of word Rajasthan comes from the works of George Thomas (Military Memories) and James Tod. Rajasthan literally means a Land of Kingdoms. However, in old times western Rajasthan with eastern Gujarat were part of “Gurjaratra” or Gurjarabhumi, land of Gurjars. The local dialects of the time use the expression Rājwār, the place or land of kings, later corrupted by the British to Rajputana. Rajput, the warriors.
