It appears that the Sati Mata Shrine in Mandsaur representing a key
event in Dashora Genealogy is worshiped both by Dashora Brahmins and by
Dashora Mahajans. A movement is in progress to convert the present day
"Otla" (which is located on an island in the river) to a Temple.
A delegation of Dashoras met with the Mayor of Mandsaur last month. The Mayor
seemed favourable and willing to allocate large amount of real estate for the
project provided that a proper unified organizational structure, which has support
communities involved, is in place.
Another delegation of Dashoras lead by Sharad Dashora is planning
to visit Mandsaur this month. Further developments will be reported soon.
Formation of a new united group to oversee the renovation of the Sati Mata
Shrine "Dashora Nagar Brahmin Parishad" is underway. The respective
Dashora Samaj Presidents namely Mr. Shivnarayan Dashora (Dashora
Samaj, Khandawa), Dr. Sumeet Mishra (Dashora Samaj, Indore), Dayawant Dashora
(Dashora Samaj, Bhopal) and .Mr. Sourav Shastri (Dashora Samaj, Ujjain)
have reached agreement to form such a group. The proposed President of the group
is Dr. Vijay Anand Joshi.
