We are KHAPREs, we are proud of our surname or last name. Keeping our roots in a small villege, ChitraDurga in Karnataka state in India,
having a mere presence in the world, the family is smaller than fifty people.
I could not remember the whole hierarchy but names like Devappa and Surappa are in the
ancestry due to our life in southern India.
