The article says:

According to Ajaygadh stone inscription of the time of Bhojavarman Alha belonged to the Vastavya race of Kayasthas and his ancestors were hereditary ministers under Chandella Kings.
The Kayastha clan of Vastavyas originated from Vastu( Vishwakarma ) who was residing at Takkarika , the foremost among the 36 towns, where dwelt the people of the writer's cast , and which , by the crowds of its residents, was made to resound with the chants of Vedas. One of the descendants of Vastu was Jajuka who was proficient in all the sciences and arts, and was endowed with the title of Thakkur ; and was entrusted by the invincible King Ganda with the work of superintending all the affairs of the state and for this service, to enjoy the village of Daugaud , granted to him by means of copper-plate. Jajukas descendants was Mahesvar,who assisted Kirtivarman, the crest-jewel of the princes , in the Yellow Mountain districts, and in recognition of this service, he was appointed an officer to guard the Visikha(high-road)of Kalanjar and also enjoyed the donation of the village Pipalahik. In course of time one Gangadhar was born in that family ; he was favourite counsellor of the King Paramdi who entrusted him with the high office of a chamberlain. Gangadhar's younger brother was Jaunadhar , who took delight in deeds of war and striving after final liberation. Following the path of heroes, both fought on the excellent mountain Kalanjar with showers of arrows. They had a younger brother named Maladhar who too was a great hero. In course of time was born Alha ; he was full of energy and was entrusted with the administration of guarding the streets(Pratoli).He lived happily in the fort.

However Alha, the brother of Udal was a general under Parmardi (Parmal). Thus Alha, the Kayastha, born much later, was not the same Alha.

It is well know that Alha-Udal belonged to the Banaphar clan.--Malaiya (talk) 17:42, 22 April 2008 (UTC)

Addition of unsourced contents[edit]

Alha: A most powerfull rajpoot warrior of indian history: Alha, one of Parmal's warriors, son of Dasaratha of the Banaphar rajpoot; he is also called Madrakh, andGaygowal. In the body of the "Raisa" is mentioned incidentally how Alha, on one of Mahmud's invasions, when all the other Rajas, including Prithi Raj himself, shrank from an encounter with Mahmud, Alha, then a boy, volunteered to lead the fight, and was the means of inflicting the signal and well-known defeat on Mahmud. On this occasion, Prithi Raj, after the battle, in a solemn council, conferred the title of Gaygowal on Alha, with the remark that they (the Rajas) were like cows who needed a gowal (herdsman) to lead them,and he (Alha) had performed towards them the task that a herdsman does for his cows.

His other title of Madrakh was obtained when Manju,Raja of Bengal (a Solankhi Rajput), defeated Brahma Deva, the Parihar Raja of Janakpur in Mathil Desa. Alha then came forward to help him, and saved him from ignominious flight. As a Rajput by flight breaks his vow not to turn his back to the enemy, andincurs ignominy, Alha, helping Brahma Deva, saved him from losing his mad: hence his title. Then alha become more powerfull than ray pithaura or prithvi raj. He won all northern kingdom for Jaychand king of kannaj. Then he called Mandleshwar Maldleek .......... dear sir i am research scholar as wel as police sub inspector i was read all and mix ingradiants from book "earley ruler of khajuraho" "rethinking oral epics " Durgeshuppolice (talk) 12:52, 8 November 2015 (UTC)
