A Gotra is the lineage or clan assigned to a Hindu at birth. In most cases, the system is patrilineal and the gotra assigned is that of the person's father. An individual may decide to identify his lineage by a different gotra, or combination of gotras.
This was because Lord Rama's great-grandfather Raghu became famous. A common mistake is to consider gotra to be synonymous with cult or Kula. A kula is basically a set of people following similar rituals, often worshipping the same God the Kula-Devata - the God of the cult. Kula has nothing to do with lineage or caste.
In fact, it is possible to change one's Kula, based on his faith or ista devatha. It is common practice in Hindu marriage to enquire about the Kula-Gotra meaning Cult-Clan of the bride and bridegroom before approving the marriage. In almost all Hindu families, marriages within the same gotra are prohibited. But marriage within the kula is allowed and even preferred.
Many lines of descent from the major rishis were later grouped separately. Accordingly, the major gotras were divided into ganas subdivisions and each gana was further divided into groups of families. The term gotra was then frequently started being applied to the ganas and to the sub-ganas. Every brahmin claims to be a direct patrilinial descendant of one of the founding rishis of a certain gana or sub-gana.
It is the gana or sub-gana that is now commonly referred to as gotra. While the gotras were classified initially according to nine? The following is a partial list of gotras found in the Brahmin community of Hindus :.

While it is somewhat akin to a family name, the given name of a family is often different from its gotra, as given names may reflect the traditional occupation, place of residence or other important family characteristic rather than gotra. Gotra means "go" means cow, land, veda and guru. Those who belong to Brahman, Kshatriya and Vaishya only have gotras. The other castes have no gotras, as they were not eligible for education in olden days. Nowadays all castes say the name of their gotra, which was self-declared.

The word Bania is a generic term derived from the Sanskrit word vanij meaning merchant or trader. They believe that the community originated years ago when an ancestor Maharaja Agrasen or Ugarsain of Agroha, Haryana divided the Vaishya third in the Hindu caste system community into eighteen clans. The Bisa believe that they are the descendents of the seventeen snake daughters of Bashak Nag cobra who married seventeen sons of Ugarsain.
The husbands slept with the handmaidens of the snake daughters resulting in Dasa offspring. The Bisa twenty consider themselves of a higher status to the Dasa ten. The Bania are Vaishya according to the Hindu caste system and third in hierarchy below Rajputs and Brahmins but higher than all other castes. They will accept food and water from higher castes but will not offer food and water in return, but they will give to lower castes, but will not accept food from them, due to their caste status.
They speak Hindi amongst themselves as well as the regional language of the states they reside in. Uttar Pradesh has 4. The Bania are traders of grain, groceries and spices and also work as shopkeepers, grocers and money lenders.
They have a reputation of being shrewd and mercenary. Money is loaned at very high interest rates with secured collateral, usually against land or gold. They also work in government departments, private enterprise and agriculture. There are administrators, engineers, doctors, advocates, judges, teachers, scholars, stockbrokers and industrialists among them.
They are active in politics at local, regional and national levels and have a powerful presence. Traditionally, the Bania are strict vegetarians whose diet consists of wheat, rice, maize, pulses, lentils, vegetables, fruit and dairy products.
Many younger men eat meat at social events outside their community. They do not drink alcohol but smoke and chew tobacco and paan betel leaf. Literacy levels are high as both boys and girls are encouraged to study further and attain university degrees. They visit clinics and hospitals as well as alternative indigenous medicine. Family planning is practiced to limit family size. They have embraced progress and developments.
Agriculturists use fertilizers, pesticides and irrigation to increase crop yields. Loans provided by banks have enabled the Bania to expand or set up new businesses. The Bania are endogamous at community and subgroup level, but strictly exogamous at the clan level though this is changing.
