The Sisodia is an Indian Rajput clan, who claim Suryavanshi lineage. A dynasty belonging to this clan ruled over the kingdom of Mewar in Rajasthan; the name of the clan is transliterated as Sesodia, Sishodia, Sisodya, Sisodia or Sisodiya. The Sisodia dynasty traced its ancestry to a son of the 12th century Guhila king Ranasimha; the main branch of the Guhila dynasty ended with their defeat against the Khalji dynasty at the Siege of Chittorgarh. In 1326, Rana Hammir who belonged to a cadet branch of that clan. Sisodias, like many other Rajput clans, claim origin from the legendary Suryavansha or solar dynasty. Rajprashasti Mahakavyam, a 17th-century laudatory text commissioned by Mewar's ruler Rana Raj Singh, contains a mythical legendary and historical genealogy of the Sisodias; the work was authored by Ranchhod Bhatt, a Telangana Brahmin whose family received regular gifts from the Sisodias. The genealogy traces the dynasty's origin to the rulers of Ayodhya, starting with Manu, succeeded by several emperors from the Ikshvaku dynasty, such as Rama.

One ruler Vijaya left Ayodhya for "the south" as per a heavenly command. He was succeeded by 14 rulers. Grahaditya, the last of these, established, his eldest son Vashapa is said to have conquered Chitrakuta in 8th century, adopted the title Rawal, thanks to a boon from Shiva. Grahaditya and Vashapa are both popular figures in the Rajasthani folklore, their successors include people. According to the Rajprashasti genealogy, one of these – Samar Singh – married Prithi, the sister of Prithviraj Chauhan, his grandson Rahapa adopted the title Rana. Rahapa's descendants spent some time at a place called Sisoda, therefore, came to be known as "Sisodia". According to Persian text Maaser-al-Omra, the Sisodia Ranas of Udaipur originated from Noshizad, son of Noshirwan-i-Adil, the eldest daughter of Yazdegerd III; the most notable Sisodia rulers were Rana Kumbha, Rana Sanga and Rana Pratap. The Bhonsle clan, to which the Maratha empire's founder Chatrapati Shivaji Maharaj belonged claimed descent from a branch of the royal Sisodia family.

Rana dynasty of Nepal claimed descent from Ranas of Mewar. According to the Sisodia chronicles, when the Delhi Sultan Alauddin Khalji attacked Chittorgarh in 1303, the Sisodia men performed saka, while their women committed jauhar; this was repeated twice: when Bahadur Shah of Gujarat besieged Chittorgarh in 1535, when the Mughal emperor Akbar conquered it in 1567. Frequent skirmishes with the Mughals reduced the Sisodia power and the size of their kingdom; the Sisodias accepted the Mughal suzerainty, some fought in the Mughal army. However, the art and literary works commissioned by the subsequent Sisodia rulers emphasised their pre-Mughal past; the Sisodias were the last Rajput dynasty to form an alliance with the Mughals, unlike other Rajput clans, never intermarried with the Mughal imperial family. Women from other Rajput clans that had marital relations with the Mughals were disallowed from marrying with the Sisodias; the Sisodias cultivated an elite identity distinct from other Rajput clans through the poetic legends and visual arts commissioned by them.

James Tod, an officer of the British East India Company, relied on these works for his book Annals and Antiquities of Rajast'han, or the central and western Rajpoot states of India. His read work further helped spread the views of the Sisodias as a superior Rajput clan in colonial and post-colonial India.

Underbelly (venue)

The Underbelly is a venue at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe off Cowgate. From 2001-2004, Underbelly was the only venue operated by Underbelly Limited. In 2005, Underbelly added the Baby Belly venue. In 2006, these venues were joined by the Cow Barn. Underbelly was first opened in 2000, as a small performance venue for five shows brought to the Fringe by the long running Fringe company, Double Edge Drama; the Double Edge directors, now directors of Underbelly, had heard of the venue through a production of Gargantua, performed by acclaimed Scottish company, Grid Iron in the haunting vaults below the central library of Edinburgh. The site was discovered by Judith Doherty and named'Underbelly' by Judith and her Co-Artistic Director, Ben Harrison. Whilst Grid Iron staged one show there, the vaults proved the perfect location for all five of Double Edge's shows with the company winning a Fringe First and sell-out houses for its critically acclaimed productions of Bent and Marat Sade. In 2001, Underbelly Limited and By Popular Demand Productions Limited were set up to turn the Underbelly into a professional venue with a number of performance spaces and a wide range of productions.

The venue was set up with performance spaces in White Belly and Big Belly. The Belly Laugh was used for late night cabaret as well as the venue's second bar. Space downstairs, now used for Belly Dance was used to exhibit a film installation by Nick Hornby. In 2002, The Underbelly was renamed The Smirnoff Underbelly to reflect its sponsorship by Smirnoff Vodka; the number of performance spaces was increased to include the Belly Button and Belly Laugh comedy venues and a third bar, the Jelly Belly, to the first floor. The number of shows increased from 18 to 50+ and this was the year that Underbelly started to make its mark. In 2003, the Belly Dancer was soundproofed to ensure that it can be used throughout the day without disrupting performances in other spaces; this allowed Underbelly to team up with Forth One 97.3 to host a series of free live music gigs every night in the Belly Dancer, known as the Forth One Fringe. These gigs over the years since have included established acts like Mark Owen, Ocean Colour Scene and Skin and new bands like Keane, The Thrills and many other bands on the cusp of breaking into the big time.

In 2004, the Delhi Belly space was added. The bars were rearranged to ease congestion and queuing. A brand new large box office was created in one of the rooms off the front alley, which freed up the old box office to become a larger and more usable publicity office with a sofa and coffee; the shows at the Underbelly venue won a record number of awards, including the Perrier Award for Jackson's Way. In 2005, Underbelly was joined by the Baby Belly on Niddry Street, just off Cowgate, a two-minute walk from the original venue; the number of shows was now up to 140 spread over the three weeks of the Edinburgh Fringe. Underbelly is now just one of four venues operated by Underbelly at the Edinburgh Fringe, but remains at the heart of Underbelly's operations and represents the true original spirit of Underbelly; the Edinburgh Fringe has come on for criticism in recent years for its commercialism and corporate sponsorship. Underbelly has been associated with Smirnoff for much of its life. Underbelly Ltd.

Dave Poulin

David James Poulin is a Canadian retired professional ice hockey centre who played 13 seasons in the National Hockey League with the Philadelphia Flyers, Boston Bruins and Washington Capitals. Poulin began his hockey career with the Notre Dame Fighting Irish at the University of Notre Dame, he played with the Fighting Irish from 1978–1982 and he was named to the Second All-Star Team in 1982. His small size got him overlooked in the NHL Entry Draft so instead he went to Sweden to play for Rögle BK. Poulin's head coach was Ted Sator, a scout for the Philadelphia Flyers in the National Hockey League. Sator was impressed with Poulin's abilities and called for him to be put on board the Flyers' roster. In 1982-83, he made the leap to the NHL after a brief stint with the Maine Mariners of the American Hockey League. On the second-to-last day of the season, Poulin made his debut at Maple Leaf Gardens, netting two goals in a 6-3 Philadelphia victory; the following season, Poulin was put on a line with Tim Kerr.

The line became a dangerous offensive line in the league for the bulk of the next three seasons, in his first full NHL campaign, helped him set a club record for most points by a Flyers rookie with 76. Poulin established himself as a strong leader and a player that could play at both ends of the ice, owing to the fact that he was 25 years old before taking a regular shift in the pros; those attributes aided in his being named team captain on the eve of the 1984-85 replacing Hall of Famer Bobby Clarke, who had dealt former teammate Darryl Sittler to Detroit on the day he was to take the captaincy. Poulin continued to be a strong presence offensively and defensively during his eight-year stay in Philadelphia, overcame debilitating injuries at key times to help the club win. In 1985, though slowed by knee and rib injuries, he helped a young Flyers club reach the 1985 Stanley Cup Finals, where they lost to the Edmonton Oilers in five games. During Game 6 of the Wales Conference Finals at the Spectrum, Poulin scored a memorable two-man disadvantage short-handed goal which helped close out the Quebec Nordiques.

Two years Poulin missed chunks of playoff time with fractured ribs, but contributed to a pair of series clinchers—a 5-1 win over the New York Islanders in Game 7 of the Patrick Division Finals, in Game 6 of the Wales Finals at the Montreal Forum. Once healthy, he could not aid Philly in the 1987 Stanley Cup Finals, as the Flyers lost to Edmonton again, but this time in a seven-game thriller. For his efforts during the regular season, he was awarded the Frank J. Selke Trophy in 1986-87 and was named to the 1986 and 1988 NHL All-Star Games. Poulin played at the Rendez-vous'87 event where he recorded the winner late in the third period of Game 1; the switch from Mike Keenan to Paul Holmgren as Flyers head coach meant a shift in responsibilities, as Poulin became more of a defensive specialist. By 1989-90, Poulin's play was deteriorating due to injuries and inconsistent play of his teammates, less than a month after being stripped of the captaincy, was traded to the Boston Bruins for former Flyers center Ken Linseman.

In his first season with the Bruins, along with former teammate Brian Propp, made it all the way to the Stanley Cup Final against the Edmonton Oilers, but Boston lost in five games. He stayed with the team for three more years which saw him win the King Clancy Memorial Trophy in 1992-93, he left the team as a free agent following the 1992-93 season and signed on with the Washington Capitals. Poulin lasted a half before retiring. Poulin spent 10 years as head hockey coach at the University of Notre Dame. In 2004, Poulin was inducted into the Flyers Hall of Fame. On July 23, 2009, Toronto Maple Leafs GM Brian Burke introduced Poulin as the club's new Vice-President of Hockey Operations; as of January 2013, Poulin has served as the GM of the Toronto Marlies. On July 22, 2014, the Maple Leafs announced, he has since joined TSN as a hockey analyst on radio and TV. Inducted into the Flyers Hall of Fame on February 23, 2004.
