Sodha is a Rajput clan found in Kutch, Gujarat.[1] The population in Pakistan comprises between 25,000 and 30,000 families. From these, around 700-800 people travel to the Indian state of Rajasthan every year in search of a spouse. This is necessary because otherwise, being the only Hindu Rajput clan in the area, they would be intermarrying within their gotra. The Government of India has arranged special visitation rights to aid this process, extending the right to stay in India from one month to six months in certain cases.[2]
