Sodha (Sindhi: سوڊها‎) is a Rajput clan found in the Tharparkar district of Sindh in Pakistan,In Sindh mostly the found in many villages of Tharparkar like as Kertee Pabohar Visasar etc.and Kutch, Gujarat also in Bikaner, Jaipur Rajasthan.[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 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]
