What is the ethnic origin of Chitpavan (Konkanastha) Brahmins?

Kokanastha Brahmins

Kokanastha Brahmins are believed to be intelligent and resourceful and hardworking honest people.

//This Content is From Official Vedas (Chitpavan Group) rather than comparing it to MYTHS like bene israel with Parshurama. //

Chitpavan’s have certain different physical characteristics which are distinctly Caucasian, hence some people dream that Chitpavan’s have their origins in some Nordic country. The truth, is lost in the mist of times gone by. The stories handed down by older generations about the origins are given below :

The present day Chitpavan Brahmins have descended from Sage Parshurama (born 5000 B.C). The story of creation goes as follows :
Parshurama was the son of Jamadagni and Renuka who belonged to the Kshatriya, or warrior caste. He was great worshipper of Lord Shiva and a devoted son. He was blessed with parshu a kind of weapon by Lord Shiva himself. He was a master at weaponry and taught the knowledge he had to Guru Dronacharya, Karna & Arjuna.
Raja Kartavirya once burnt down the monastery of Sage Vashishti. The angry sage then cursed him that “Parshurama shall kill you”. Not the one to keep away from mischief, the King stole the Holy Cow called as “Kamadhenu” from the sage. On hearing of this mischief angry Parshurama tracked the King down and killed him with his parshu. In order to avenge for their father’s death the sons of the slain King killed the sage Vasishti in retaliation. This act really angered Parshurama and he pledged that “he would get rid of the Kshatriya’s (the warrior caste) 21 times from the face of the earth”.
And he did that. So as a penance for this horrific genocide (ethnic cleansing) he organised a very large yadnya and donated all the lands which he had acquired to Sage Kashyap. Then he left for the Mahendra mountains in southern India to meditate. After a long and severe meditation on the sea coast, he pleased Varun the Lord of Rain and asked him to grant him new land from the sea. But in vain, the sea would not retract, so in anger he put his arrow to his bow and shot it in the seaward direction. Parshurama’s anger was well known even to the Gods in Heaven. Lord of Sea was terrified and requested Parshurama not to do such a deed. But who can get back a arrow which has left the bow. The sea backed off to that region where the arrow had found its mark. This new holy land was known as “Konkan”.
Here on this new land Parshurama settled his fellow Brahmins, these 60 families formed the basis of original 60 surnames.

However there is another tale, which is more popular in the Sahyadri’s or Desh i.e. the plateau region of Deccan which forms the major part of Maharashtra state, in modern India.

After committing the genocide of the Kshatriya’s, Parshurama had committed worst kind of sin. In order to get salvation for this act he had make very large offerings to the Gods by prayers and worship (pooja). Parshurama was known for his legendary anger and capabilities, thus other Brahmins were not ready to be associated with his functions. Hence the prayers would have been without the official sanction of other learned Brahmins.

As fate would be, at that very moment Parshurama saw 14 dead bodies floating in the sea. Parshurama purified the dead bodies on the funeral pyre and brought them back to life. These fourteen men formed the basis of 14 Gotra’s of the Chitpavan Brahmins. Afterwards they were settled by Parshurama by reclaiming the land from the sea.

In Sanskrit the rich language of ancient India, “Chita” – means pyre and “Pavan” means pure. Since the bodies were brought back to life on a pyre and were purified hence they would be called as CHITAPAVANmeaning those who were purified by fire. And since Parshurama was responsible for their new life, they would be brahmins like him.

GHRCEM is the fifth autonomous engineering college in the city, both B.Tech and M.Tech degrees awarded by the institute would be affiliated to SPPU with a mention of GHRCEM on the degree certificate.
There are Only 20 Autonomous Colleges in whole Maharashtra! And Only Six in Mumbai Pune Nashik Region !

Very close to the Industrial Area, the environment at the sprawling campus is conducive to academic pursuits like class-room studies and research.

“Autonomy would now lessen our dependency on SPPU (Pune University), and besides designing courses according to the latest technology and industrial needs, we’ll be able to provide better job placement opportunities to our students”—Dr RS Bichkar, in-charge director of GHRCEM

Autonomy Means

1. An autonomous Institute means it is an institute which is affiliated to the University but does not follow its syllabus or curriculum, they will have their own curriculum based on industrial needs and students requirement.
2. Academic independence gives the freedom to design the Curriculum
3. Exams are conducted by the institute itself and are in accordance with what is being taught during the session.

Benefits to Students

•Student will get the B. Tech. Degree from same University i.e. Savitribai Phule Pune University, Pune. (in line with G. H. Raisoni College of Engineering & Management , Pune)
•Evaluation scheme will be followed as 20-30-50, 20 % marks are for Teacher Assessment (which comprises of Assignment, Project, seminar as decided by the teacher teaching the subject), 30 % will be for In Semester Examinationand 50 % will be for the End Semester Examination.
•The announcement of results in most of the universities is time-consuming. In Autonomy, quick result declaration before the start of new semester.
•Re-exam for ESE fails students -hence for majority of students no backlog load to be carried to next semester.
•Better utilization of post examination period For educational work like internship, practical training with organization, certification courses.For site seeing, being with family members, for hobbies like hiking, mountaineering, going abroad also etc.
•Evaluation Scheme will be transparent to students.
•No more running to University for clerical & examination related work.
•Continuous assessment will result in better education gains and no last minute tension for end semester examination as in present system.
•Continuous assessment for practical will also relieve the students from last minute submission for university examination.
•In relative grading system, the highest mark obtained by a student decides the marks of others. So in case of a difficult paper, a low percentage score would not necessarily mean a low grade point.
•Degrees finally will be awarded by the affiliated University (Pune University)which generally carries a lot of reputation !
