Ethnically Gujarati people are Caucasian and a 2004 Stanford study conducted with a wide sampling from India, found that over 33% of genetic markers in Gujarat were partially of West Eurasian origin, the second highest amongst the sampled group of South Asians with Punjabis at 42%, and Kashmiris at 30%.[22]

mtDNA Haplogroup U7 is found in Iran, the rest of the Near East,[22] the Caucasus,[23] Poland, Afghanistan, India, and Pakistan; with extremely low frequencies in neighboring countries Turkmenistan, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, and Iraq. Its frequency peaks at over 12% in Gujarat, 9% in Iran, 9% in Punjab, 6% in Pakistan and 6% in Afghanistan. Elsewhere in India, its frequency is very low (0.00% to 0.90%).[22] Outside of the Near East, Afghanistan, Pakistan, and the Northwestern Indian states, Haplogroup U7 is non-existent. Expansion times and haplotype diversities for the Indian and Near and Middle Eastern U7 mtDNAs are strikingly similar.[22]

The possible homeland of this haplogroup likely spans the coverage of the Near East to Western India.[citation needed] From there its frequency declines steeply both to the east and to the west.[24]

Some preliminary conclusions from these varying tests support some of the highest degrees of Indian mtDNAs found in Western Asia, supporting a theory of trade contact and migrations out of Gujarat into West Asia.[22]
my caste/tribe is brahmin.

what is West Eurasian origin ?
so it means we gujaratis are related to punjabis and rajasthanis ?

Afghanistan , Pakistan and India are genetically related. If you zoom then you can see Gujaratis below UP brahmin.

Gujarati here. But this genetic stuff should really be studied more, and should be not be used for claiming superiority, rather finding out origins of human race
