100 years old book tells quality of a Dogra
Dogras have always been a formidable warrior. As they fought on numerous fronts, a number of accounts of their valour have been recorded. Jammu Virasat has found a 100 years old book, Sepoy, by a British army-man who characterizes a Dogra in following points:
A common quality among Dogras is that they don’t open up to strangers early. They take their own sweet time to get acquainted before cracking a joke with anybody. Read also: 14 Ways To Protect Dogra Virasat
Though capricious in nature, yet a Dogra equals a Gurkha in confidence. With this, he has a conservative nature, a sense of aristocracy and pride.
Dogras are a cool crowd as they don’t lose their cool even under the most terrible fire. This fact can be readily verified every time our villages face cease fire violations.
A Dogra is fussy about his appearance as he doesn’t compromise with looks. There is no denying the fact that Dogras – be men or women, always put on their very best before going out.
On funny note, a Dogra is also thrifty.
He loves to save for his family. Being a staunch family man, it becomes hard for a Dogra to leave his family, even for job.
