I found these rare Taals in book which is quiet old. I hope someone can translate them in English on this site. I'll scan rest of the Taals tomorrow.

MattaTaal, GajaJhampa, Firdaust, Pancham Swarai. are not Rare taals.
U'll find Pandit Bhai Gaitonde/ Pandit Arvind Mulgaonkar doing Solo presentation in the above taals. yes u can call it rare becoz most tabla players choose the easy ones like teentaal, Jaaptaal, Rupak and Ektaal for Solo presentation.

i have a recording of tal 'Firodast' (trsl. the rising/lowering hand) by Sarwar Sabri of Ajrada gharana. It's played as 14 beats the first half exactly the same as ektal: dhin dhin dhage tirikita tun na kat ta, with dhage tinake dhage tinake to end, in a different jati, i think its triplets, and a pause somewhere??

Then i have seen this tal being documented as 13 beats at other places. Does any one have more info?

Never heard of GajaJhumpa.

I have heard an alternate Farodast theka as :

dhin dhin dhage tirikita tun na kat ta, dhatra krdhin naga, dhatra krdhin naga

Bhai Samund Singh Ragi, one of the greatest exponents of Gurmat Sangeet, did employ it a fair bit. The triplets leading to sum give the bandish a very nice lilting feel. One of those taals that you could just play the theka - so naturally beautiful that no ornaments are required.

Mmm... No one's helped you out with your original request by the looks of it.
I was looking for Pancham Sawari theka so I'll translate that one for you now.
