After partition GMS first shifted to Amritsar in 1947 and then to Delhi in 1955. The first three decades were almost spent in hibernation due to lack of resources. During the last four decades, GMS has made big strides in various fields. Today, the Community has risen and its members have come closer to each other, as never before, and the Mohyali flag is aflutter in all parts of the country. This development clearly establishes the fact that Mohyals have arrived in strength, are an integrated community and their identity is intact and vibrant. Besides building of Ashrams, Bhawans and Institutions and creating financial resources, the credibility of the GMS has never been as high as today. GMS is rightly proud of its achievements over the last four decades.

FOUR DECADES OF EXCELLENCE & DEDICATED SERVICE TO THE COMMUNITY
The apex body of Mohyals was established by our visionary forefathers on 24 May 1891 at Lahore and over the last 125 years has been rendering yeoman service to the community. Mohyals though miniscule in numbers — estimated to be six to seven lacs - have always been in the forefront in the cause of Dharma and defence of motherland. Descendents of legendary Sapta Rishis, Mohyals have, over the ages, repeatedly demonstrated valour and virtuosity — fighting against religious bigotry and social injustice. The Martyrdom of Bhai Mati Dass and Bhai Sati Das is unparalleled in the world's history. In the pre-partition years, the main strongholds of Mohyals were in Punjab and NWFP and Federally Administered Tribal Area (FATA) in Pakistan. Basically agriculturists, they were recognised as warriors and a martial race and excelled in Police and Defence Services. After the traumatic partition of the country in 1947, the Mohyals got scattered and settled in various parts of the country. They were virtually cut off from their moorings, but the inherent Mohyali spirit survived .The Community has excelled itself in Defence, Police and Administrative services besides making a mark in Industry, filmdom and various other spheres.
Shri Narender Nath Mohan, founder of Mohan Meakin Ltd, Lt. Col. Ved Rattan Mohan, Brigadier (Dr.) Kapil Mohan, Shri. B.D. Bali, president of General Mohyal Sabha India, Sardar Shamsher Singh Vaid of Ganda Singh Wale Amritsar, Sardar Shyam Singh and Choudhry Gurusharan Singh Datta of Amritsar Sugar Factory Rohana Kalan, Bhai Damrik Singh Chhibber of Karyala, and many others helped many Mohyals during partition of India in 1947. Many mohyals reached Amritsar in Punjab; Solan in Himachal Pradesh and Rohana Kalan in Muzaffar Nagar Uttar Pradesh. Mohyals living in India assisted migrant mohyals from Pakistan during this difficult time.
Generations continue. We are born to die. We live to serve or work for the society. Society is one unit of World. We possess special DNA and RNA to transfer knowledge to the next generations. Mohyals are one of the species of this Brahmand governed by planets.
My mother and father including elders in relation blessed me. I am thankful to all of them. May God give Mohyals long life and prosperity.
- Informing next generation that Mohyals were a close knitted family. Each sub caste is famous for its special DNA characteristics.
- Writing family tree of each Mohyal. Only male members names shall be written in family tree. Women is incubator and she is creator. Nature has provided this power to her only. Why? I do not know. Male members nourish and protect their families. But society is always changing.
- In India we give more value to the "Mother Power" or "Matri Shakti". We say "Mother Land" and not "Father Land". Mother is truth and Father is faith. So separate tree shall be written about women but without any Sub Caste or Gotra. Women do not have any caste or Gotra. Why? I do not know.
- To connect male tree to mother tree, I shall write marriage chart also, so that family tree can be connected with each other.
- Family Tree is written as per the information given by individuals on phone or by e mail. It is not a legal document.
- All Mohyals are requested to inform me about their family tree. It shall be my pleasure to publish their family tree free of cost.This may help Mohyal Community.
Addresses of all Mohyals or to prepare a directory of all Mohyals is a dream of many Mohyals since many years. Each Mohyal Sabha of each city is trying. I am of the opinion that it should be the responsibilty of President of each Sabha to know addresses of Mohyals in his area. He should be influential and rich Mohyal. He should be assisted by account person who can handle account and social worker who maintains liaison with mohyal families. I can give each Mohyal Sabha , a platform where they can publish addresses. Please click on Mohyal Sabha and ask for web site. Now there is no need of books. E Books or internet has taken it's place. I am adding many sites where I am adding addresses of Mohyals or any news about Mohyals on this site. See list of addresses under face book as names 4-5 para downwards.
Please send me your name, address, family tree and photo of your family which I am ready to publish on web site free of cost.
I do not know how to use twitter as social networking site. I tried to search names like dutt, datta, mohan Vaid, Bali or bhimwal or lau and whom so ever I found, i am trying to follow so that they may also follow me. Try to develop this new Twitter as news channel for each other. Some times we may argue it is of no use. But I still feel we should all be connected and share and agree or disagree on many issues. I welcome all Mohyals.On twitter I am known as Mohyal World.
Face Book is a social networking site. I thought to use it as friend of Mohyals, or a site where all Mohyals can share their thoughts with each other. This Face book can be connected with web site of Mohyals around the World. So I started face book for Mohyals. I had to select name. I could not find any name better than Bhai Matidas. So on face book Mohyals are my friend as friend to Bhai Mati Das, an warrior or person who dedicated every thing in life for others. There are many friends, better word may be blood relations, who are related to one another. All Mohyals are welcome on this site.
