Glorious Sindh


Know some of the imp.facts about ancient Sind, emerging from the book.
1. BIRTH & beginning of Hinduism took place in Sind, along Sindhu river, prior to 8,000 BC
2. It was a man from Sind who first uttered the auspicious ‘OM’ Mantra, and devised the salutation of NAMASTE, (to highlight "TAT TVAM ASI" - THAT THOU ART - or to acknowledge that "there is God in you, and to Him and to you we salute).
3. Similarly, the ‘SWASTIKA’ seal & symbol was originated in Sind to spread the message of ‘Daya, Dana & Dharma’ (Later, after the Aryan migration to Europe, ‘SWASTIKA’ came to be adopted in Europe, initially for auspicious purposes, though in the modern era, in the Nazi period, it was used for inauspicious, corrupt practices and racial hatred).
4. It was SINDHIS from SIND who discovered the routes to Ganga, Dravidian, Bangla, and other regions in 5,000 BC; and civilizations of all these regions, then, came under spiritual guidance of SIND, in a spirit of equality and mutual respect. All these regions joined together to form Bharat Varsha.
5. It was a Sindhi - he was known as Sindhu Putra – who, 7,000 years ago, was acknowledged as MAHAPATI in GANGA region to indicate his spiritual supremacy over GANGAPATI (ruler of GANGA region). Sindhu Putra was also recognized as the PERIYAR (Supreme authority) in Dravidian regions. Everywhere else too, he was honored, with highest titles and respectful submission.
 6. The ancient name of Bharat Varsha was given to India to honor the memory of Bharat who was the 19th Karkarta (supreme chief) of the Hindu clan in Sind in 5000 BC, long after he retired as a hermit at the age of sixty.
 7. Sind had profound influence on RIG VEDA, doctrines of KARMA; MOKSHA, AHIMSA & DHARMA; and also on the pre-ancient roots and lofty ideals of Sanatana Dharma. 
 NOTE: Rig Veda, the first and foremost of our Vedas (and the world’s most ancient literature), hardly mentions Ganga and Yamuna rivers. Only one late hymn mentions Ganga. For Rig Vedic poets, the river par excellence was Sindhu, mentioned repeatedly, respectfully and glowingly, in Rig-Veda. (This, as ‘Return of the Aryans’ explains, is said not in arrogance, for Sindhis worship Ganga, but the fact is that the earliest songs of Hindus were naturally about their home-ground which began with the Sind region, as the birth-place of Hinduism).
8. It was along Sindhu river, that the world’s first written language or the script was evolved. They called it "the language that can be seen". Sindhi is today written in the wrong way - in Arabic script. But it is Sanskritic. 72 percent of its words were Sanskritic - till 1947. Since 1947, its Sanskritic content is being eroded by inclusion of Urdu, Persian and Arabic words.
9. Sind was one of the major home-grounds and cradle-grounds of Aryans when they left India in 5000 BC, and returned back to their home-town and heritage of Sind.

Samajwadi Party has given ticket to shri Ashok Anshwani of Kanpur from Govind nager.Lets Vote n support Ashok for the community


The Indian freedom struggle that started during the rule of the British Raj saw the emergence of great political fighters who fought hard for a free India.
Mahatma Gandhi, Pandit Nehru, Sardar Patel have become immortal in history. Amongst all these noblemen, even Sindhis have been active participants in the political arena since politics took a proper shape from 1950, when India became republic on January 26.
The most active and prominent person in Indian politics that belongs to the sindhi clan is the Former deputy Prime Minister of India, L K Advani, who is the guiding support of Former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee.
The name of Dr. Choithram Gidwani should be mentioned when we talk about the great politicians as he is the sole man responsible to help Sindhis leave Sindh, when they were subjected to inhuman conditions and help them establish elsewhere.
Sindhis have made a dynamic contribution by actively participating in this mad rush of power and governance.L.K. Advani, Ram Jethmalani are just among the many names from the Sindhi community that have pledged to serve the country with their wholehearted dedication and efforts. From MLA's to MP's, you'll find Sindhis in every field of politics right here.Sh Kishan Motwani, Dr Mayaben Kodnani Sh Parmanand Khatter Sh Vasdeo Devnani Sh Giandev Ahuja Hasu Advani Sh Suresh Keswani Sh Ishwardas Rohani have added a feather in State politics.

“I am a Sindh” -- Gandhi

“EVERYTHING IN INDIA attracts me. 
But when I first visited Sindh in 1916, it attracted me in a special way
 and a bond was established between the Sindhis and me that has proved capable of bearing severe strains. 
I have been able to deliver to the Sindhis bitter truths without being misunderstood” --
 wrote Gandhiji way back in 1929.
Actually Gandhiji delivered to Sindh more sweet truths than bitter truths. And, in any case, all these truths indeed established a very warm relationship between Gandhiji and the Sindhis. He visited Sindh seven times --- in 1916, 1917, 1920, 1921, 1929, 1931, and 1934. It was ``a Sindhi friend'' who had helped Gandhi shift from an expensive hotel to economical lodgings when he arrived in London for his law studies. In 1893, C.L. Lachiram, a Sindhi merchant, helped him organize the Natal Indian Congress.
the most important Sindhi leader in Gandhiji's life and work was Acharya Jivatram Bhagavandas Kripalani.
After a few years, as Acharya of Gujerat Vidyapeeth, Kripalani went full-time into politics and became General Secretary of the Congress for more than a decade. 
Gandhiji's relations with Acharya Gidvani were equally dear, except that the latter died too soon, in 1935. Gidvani resigned as principal of Ramjas College in Delhi, to head the Gujerat Vidyapeeth. Gandhiji said of him that he was ``not only a scholar but, on the touch-stone of character, gold.''
Gandhiji had known Prof. Malkani since his stay with him in Muzaffarpur. Malkani was teaching at Gujerat Vidyapeeth when, in 1927, under pressure from his wife and persuasion from N.V. Thadhani --- then Principal, D.G. National College, Hyderabad Sindh --- he left Ahmedabad without consulting Gandhiji.
Gandhiji admired Sindh for giving so many excellent professors to the country. 
However, perhaps his sweetest relations were with Jairamdas
When Gandhiji was launching the ``Salt Satyagraha'' in 1930, he wrote to Jairamdas, who was then member of the Bombay Legislative Council: ``I have taken charge of the Committee for Boycott of Foreign Cloth. I must have a whole-time secretary, if that thing is to work. And I can think of nobody so suitable like you.'' Jairamdas immediately resigned his his seat, took up the new charge, and made a tremendous success of the boycott of foreign cloth.
 

In 1941, when Dr. Choithram, President Sindh PCC, consulted Gandhiji on a particular issue, the latter told him: ``Do as Jairamdas advises. My ,faith in his wisdom is a constant factor.' when in 1947 the Sindhi Hindus did begin to leave, Gandhiji wrote: ``If even a single Sindhi leaves Sindh, it will be a matter of shame to Mr. Jinnah as Governor-General.'' He added: ``The Sindh Hindus are first-class businessmen. Why are they running away to Bombay, Madras and other places? It will not be they who will be the losers, but Sindh.

Asa'anji Saka'afat-------a Sindhi Culture And Customs


Oh, yes,my dearest mother Sindh,my jeejal mother,my beloved motherland,my sweet fatherland, they are gone! Your children - my brothers and my sisters, your loved ones and me - all have left. 
You nurtured them and nourished them with your life. 
You loved them and protected them with your blood, sweat and tears. 
Now, you are old, you are feeble, you are alone, you are under siege and you are dying! 
You need them!! They are there no more! They have left you to fend for yourself - they have foresaken you, they have abandoned you. Yes, tears of separation from them will kill you!
The culture of Sindh, this great mother of all civilizations, is so pure, sublime, unique and rich.But, where is it?
 I cannot find it! It is lost! The children of Sindh have gone all over the world, leaving their language, culture, heritage, traditions and, most of all, their very own mother behind. 
"Hayf-u tanheen khay ho-i, jan-i watan-o pahinjo visa'aryo" - 
"Shame on those who have abandoned their motherland!"
                                                                                    by    Fakir Bedil

Sindhis - The scattered treasure

Throughout the ages, Sindh was invaded by people from the northwest. The Sindhis have not only survived the attacks but have benefited from and assimilated all that was good in the mores of the lives of the invaders. The Sufism of the Sindhis is a harmonious blend of the finest value of both the Vedantic and Islamic cultures.making of what is called 'Sindhi Culture'. 
A Sindhi follows the most secular philosophy of humanism. He never restricts himself to dogmas or rituals. The legacy of all embracing love for mankind has made the Sindhi cosmopolitan in his outlook and universal in his temperament. His social structure is not ridde n with prejudices of caste, colour and creed.

There are no Shudras among the Sindhi Hindus. There is neither the domination of the Brahmins nor the evil of untouchability. Sindhis are known for their realistic & practical outlook. The traditional ills of ancient India, like child marriage, cruelty to 
widows and casteism are not for them.

All through his life, he is culturally and linguistically a Sufi in his outlook, adventurous in his travels, tactful in his trade, social in mixing with people o f different faiths and customs, liberal in his views towards social norms, generous in giving and tolerant towards all faiths and beliefs.

A Sindhi is a peacock minded person. Such is his life and his story. Historians record his voyages in Babylon and Egypt, Basra and Baghdad and his acumen in business. He is a fusion of cultures, faiths and languages exchanging with the people their way of living and thinking wherever he may be.

Proud to b Sindhi

 Ladies and Gentlemen 
It is a matter of great pride that 5000 years ago our ancestors lived in the best of towns, towns in which there were swimming pools, in which there were granaries, in which there were go downs in which there were big and broad roads, in which there was an underground drainage system and art had so flourished that the excavations on 1924 among of the things that they found the most important thing that they found a small statue of a dancing girl. A dancing girl which has caused amazement to scholars on the artifact of that civilization. There is a book on the history of India written by a great British scholar Keith and that contains the description of the statue. It’s a girl who is flaunting her puberty, who is practically wearing nothing except a chunk of jewelry and the author says she obviously wants to be desired. And she will be happy to know that after 5000 years we still desire her.

So Ladies and Gentlemen that is our great civilization of which we have to be proud.
