A few words from me:
About twenty years ago my friend Diwan Hotchand Advani,
(Superintendent of Customs, now retired), Hotu to all his friends, showed me
two volumes of a Sindhi books titled, "SIND JAY HINDUN JEE TAREEKH".
The book interested me as it recounted History of Sind
and Sindhis, and especially as it also contained photographs of Sindhi
elders prior to the year 1947.
Hotu got these volumes photocopied for me, courtesy of
another friend of ours, Pishu T. Chellaram.
After glancing at some of the pages that seemed
interesting to me, I put the volumes away.
Now, twenty years later, I have picked up these volumes
and am making an attempt to translate certain sections of them in English.
This attempt is not only for the benefit of my children,
Sunder, his wife Saira, Madhavi, her husband Mohan (Bob), Anuja and my grandchildren
Aysha, Shazia, Aditya, Kiran and Jai, but also for all Sindhi youngsters who may have an
interest to know about their Roots.
