Dash ( Odia ଦାଶ, Devnagari-दाश) is an Odia Brahmin surname who belongs to Utkala Brahmins. Some of them write Dash-Sharma ( Sanskrit-दाशशर्मा). (It is to be noted that Bengali Vaidya-Brahmins also have this Dash/Dash-Sharma surname, which suggests that they probably share a common origin.) They are settled throughout Orissa and follow mainly the Shrauta tradition of Hinduism and any form of Vishnu as Kuladevata. A minority of Odia Brahmins sometimes use the shorter form ' Das'. The shorter surname Das is more commonly a Kayastha surname in Orissa and West Bengal. So all family surnames ending as Dash indicate Brahmin ancestry in Orissa, while Das could be of Brahmin ancestry.
The dash is a punctuation mark that is similar to a hyphen or minus sign, but differs from both of these symbols primarily in length and function. The most common versions of the dash are the en dash and the em dash , whose names historically were loosely associated with the length of a lower-case n and upper-case M, respectively, in commonly used typefaces.
Usage varies both within English and in other languages, but the usual convention in printed English text is as follows:
- An em dash (or an en dash) may be used to denote a break in a sentence or to set off parenthetical statements.
Glitter, felt, yarn, and buttons—his kitchen looked as if a clown had exploded.
A flock of sparrows—some of them juveniles—alighted and sang.
- The en dash (but not the em dash) is used to indicate spans or differentiation, where it may be considered to replace "and" or "to" (but not "to" in the phrase "from … to …"):
The French and Indian War (1754–1763) was fought in western Pennsylvania and along the present US–Canadian border (Edwards, pp. 81–101).
- The em dash (but not the en dash) is also used to set off the sources of quotes:
Seven social sins: politics without principles, wealth without work, pleasure without conscience, knowledge without character, commerce without morality, science without humanity, and worship without sacrifice. —Mahatma Gandhi
