Historically and culturally, Haryana has made significant contributions to the rest of India. With the help of the holy rivers Sarsvati, Drsadvati, and Yamuna and their many tributaries, this area has been appropriately dubbed the cradle of Vedic civilization.
Despite only receiving the appellation “Haryana” in the 12th century A.D., the area of Haryana has a history that dates back to the pre-historic and proto-historic eras. Haryana, the seventeenth province of the Indian Union and the result of the 1st November, 1966 bifurcation of the then Punjab, covers an area of 44,212 square kilometers, and it has achieved rapid economic and industrial development over the years, allowing it to emerge as a front runner state.
On November 1st, 1966, the state of Haryana was separated from Punjab. To the north are the states of Punjab and Himachal Pradesh, and to the west and south is Rajasthan. The Yamuna River forms the state boundary to the east between Uttaranchal and Uttar Pradesh.
Delhi’s northern, western, and southern boundaries are all formed by the Indian state of Haryana. The National Capital Area encompasses much of Haryana. Chandigarh, which serves as both the capital of Haryana and the union region of Punjab, is the location of the state’s administrative center.

Jats in Haryana
The Jats can be found in every corner of Haryana. Caste is no longer a factor in census statistics after 1931. Therefore, it is impossible to provide a precise count of the Jat people. The Jat community is the biggest in Haryana, making up an estimated 24.0% of the state’s total population.
According to these criteria, there are a total of 4638,000 Jats in the world. About 20% of the populace is made up of Harijans. Meos make up the majority of the state’s Muslims, who live primarily in the Mewat area. In Haryana, Muslims can be divided into three distinct groups. Asharf or Sharaf (elite) are at the top of the social hierarchy, followed by the Ajlaf (middle class) and the Arzal (bottom of the social hierarchy). There are both native Rajput Muslims and those who have turned to Islam. The Ambala, Kurukshetra, and Karnal regions are where the majority of Sikhs call home. Even among Sikhs, there are distinct clans, such as the Jat Sikhs and the Aroras.
Seventy percent or more of Haryana’s populace makes their living in agriculture. There are several closely related spoken Hindi varieties among the population. Bangaru is the most widely spoken variety. The people of Haryana, who work hard and consume a diet rich in dairy products, tend to be taller, stronger, and healthier than the typical Indian. Haryanavi, Hindi, Panjabi, Urdu, and English are the most widely spoken tongues. The current standard for Sanskrit education is the eighth grade.
