On Kulina system among Rāḍhi Brahmins - 03

As mentioned earlier, as per tradition:

1. During the reign of Khitīśūra [son of Bhūśūra ], Rāḍhi Bengali brahmins were classified into 56 groups based on the name of the village granted to them
2. During the reign of Dharāśūra, the great grandson of Khitīśūra, Rāḍhi brahmins were classified into two categories - kulācala (22 villages) and  sacchrotriya [satśrotriya] (34 villages).
3. During the reign of Vallāla sena (1158 to 1178 C.E), Rāḍhi kulācala brahmins were classified as mukhya kulin (19 people from 8 kulācala villages) and gauna kulin (some people from the remaining 14 kulācala villages).
mukhya kulin comprised of 19 people from 8 villages - bandya, mukhatI, gAnga, kAnji, kunda, puti, ghoShAla, chaTTa. gauna kulin comprised of some people from remaining 14 villages - haDa, gaDa, keshara, choukhandI, pAri, guDa, pipplI, pItamundI, rAyI, mahintya, kUlabhI, ghAntI, dighADi, dinDI
