Dash (Oriya Surname)

Dash (Oriya ଦାଶ, Devnagari-दाश) is an Oriya Brahmin surname who belongs to Utkala Brahmins.Some of them write Dash-Sharma(Sanskrit-दाशशर्मा ).(It is to be noted that Bengali Vaidya-Brahmins also have this Dash/Dash-Sharma surname, which suggests that they probably share a common origin.) They are settled throughout Orissa and follow mainly the Shrauta tradition of Hinduism and any form of Vishnu as Kuladevata . A minority of Oriya Brahmins sometimes use the shorter form 'Das'. The shorter surname Das is more commonly a Kayastha surname in Orissa and West Bengal. So all family surnames ending as Dash indicate Brahmin ancestry in Orissa, while Das could be of Brahmin ancestry.

Famous quotes containing the word dash:

    It is very rare that you meet with obstacles in this world which the humblest man has not faculties to surmount. It is true we may come to a perpendicular precipice, but we need not jump off, nor run our heads against it. A man may jump down his own cellar stairs, or dash his brains out against his chimney, if he is mad.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
