Description:
Sekhri is a well known Khatri (From Sanskrit क्षत्रिय Kshatriya) clan in India. Guru Nanak Dev, the founder of Sikhism, was born into a khatri family. His son, Sri Chand, was the founder of the Udasi order, which is the oldest of the existing Sikh orders.

Khatri is a community that originated in the Pothwar plateau (Rawalpindi division) and surrounding regions of Punjab, Pakistan. When Pakistan and India gained independence, most of the Khatris in what became Pakistan migrated to India. Today Khatris live in all regions of India, but are concentrated in Punjab, Haryana, Delhi and Uttar Pradesh. While most Khatris are Hindu, some are also Sikh and a few belong to the Jain faith. Khatris of all these faiths collectively form one community. In modern times, the Khatri play a dominant role in the Indian economy, serving as businessmen, civil and government administrators, landlords, and military officials. They are by far the most educated group in Punjab.
