Sindhi History & Language > Who Are Sindhis ?
Who are Sindhis
Imagine you are on tour with family, which language you
will use for conversation with each other? The most
common answer is Mother tongue and it leads to yet
another question, which langue holds the status of
mother tongue? Especially if we took the question in the
context of cosmopolitan and world’s most scattered
Sindhi community with very less population in any given
part of globe.
The adaptive Sindhis are the masters in adopting the
language, customs and traditions of the surrounding
communities, hence you can see if a Sindhi, from
Maharashtra, he/she sure to know Marathi, Gujrati, in
Gujarat, Urdu, in Gulf Countries and German in Germany
In short Sindhi knows and hold a good command over the
language of geographical region of which is native of.
As at all places Sindhis are very less in numbers hence
it is not possible for all to learn read and write
Sindhi language. They are forced to take primary
education in other than Sindhi language medium of
Here the question arose about the mother tongue? Will
you identify Sindhi as the mother tongue in such
situation? If not, again a new question will raise head
before you “WHO ARE SINDHIS?”
If we go by geographical and historical way,
we can say the community lives on the bank of river
Sindhu [in the ancient times was known as the Indus and
you might be surprise to know that in world’s oldest
written knowledge books Vedas reference of Ganga, the
holly river comes only twice, where as, there are more
than thirty places where name of river Indus is
mentioned] holds the common name Sindhi for them.
In the views of our elders, native of Sindh are the
Sindhi, but as at present ancestors of those forefathers
are spread all over the globe and are the citizen of
numerous other countries hence this become irrelevant.
Sindhi is community in the Hindu religion with faith in
Jhulelal as their deity. With the present time this also
seems irrelevant as Sindhis, who opted to live in
Pakistan after 1947, most of them have adopted Islam as
their religious faith, others who are scattered all over
the world and are Hindu, they also adopted various
Though most of them had do not discard Lal Uderolal from
their life but it is hard truth that they don’t look
towards Jhulelal as their religious God. The ceremonial
procedures and rituals of the Nirankari Sindhis are a
bit different from the rest of Hindu Sindhis. For
example they don't need traditional Brahaman [Priest]
for marriage and Agani Sanskar [Funerals] these duties
are often performed by the head of Nirankari Bhavan in
the city, even at many places Nirankari have either
altered or discarded tradition of Barho (12th day from
death) but still they are called Sindhis.
If we look at our literature and try to define Sindhi,
we can say that a community, which use language Sindhi
to converse with each other, to express their thoughts
either in written or verbal format is called Sindhis.
After 1947 ,a new dispute is in the air about the script
of the Sindhi language. In India and many other
geographical places we are having a negligible
population hence due to lack of facilities, our younger
generations are deprived of learning Sindhi language.
Who are Sindhis
Many Sindhis of under 30 years of age are not in the
position of pronouncing some typical Sindhi words
With keeping scope for being disagree, I dare to suggest
Sindhi is the community, which is among the ancient and
most civilized cultured human population since the first
step of human beings on the earth. We can’t give any
more evidence, which can prove this with more clarity
than the Mohan Jo Dado and Hadappa.
Sindhis are the among the most adoptive communities of
the world, In the Maharashtra Ganpati festival become a
part of the life of Sindhis there, Garaba dance had the
same status for the Sindhis in Gujrat and Karva choith
holds the same importance in the Sindhis of the North
India. What it tells? No thing but the adoptive nature
of Sindhis. We always welcome good traditions and don’t
hesitate to adopt them. This is one of the many
fundamental & unique qualities of Sindhis.
Sindhis are the most adjustable persons of the human
beings; we always believe that adjustment is the key to
success. We know that human life is running on the
wheels of adjustment and it is nearly impossible to live
without this art, hence slowly and gradually we become
master in it.
Sindhis are the one of the intelligent community. We
have an inherent habit of looking the dark side of the
situation first; this has helped our community to be
among the most successful communities of the globe.
Sindhis are the hard working people. We love to work and
in our vision work is not lesser than the worship of
God, hence through out the world it is hard to find
Sindhis are strong believers of the peaceful
coexistence. It is really hard to find any Sindhi as the
counterpart of the disputes arose due to life style or
way of thinking or religious faith. Our ideology says
that a mother is always a mother, irrespective of whose
mother she is? We respect others and wish the same for
Sindhis are the community with urge for the learning;
hence you can see them as the front leader for using the
technologies and modern equipments.
Sindhis have the tendency to reach the top, I think the
two examples, from the younger generation, of Narendra
Hirwani and Pankaj Advani will be sufficient to support
my point, both are in the non traditional field of
sports for the Sindhi community. Former one has
equalized the world record of taking 18 wickets in the
debut test match, where Pankaj Advani is the teen age
World Champion. Though in India Sindhi population is
less than 2% of total population of the country but
still Shri L K Advani, a renowned politician, the B J
P's Prime Ministerial candidate for the General
elections to be held in 2009.
Sindhis are with the quality of coping with the given
situation and finding solutions within their limits.
Consider the situation in the 1947, Our forefathers were
forced to leave their ancestral properties and migrate
to India almost empty handed. Today in India Sindhis are
among the most successful business communities of the
Here I would like to quote reference of One SMS which
goes like this
"Sindhis as true Indian contribute 24% of Total
Income Tax, 62% of Total Charity Fund, 20% Of GDP of
Have more than 50 thousand temple / Community
Buildings in India .
46% of Share Brokers are Sindhi, Important and Solid
Financers of Bollywood are Sindhi, Most of Leading
company owners are Sindhi.
Sindhis have achieved this with population of little
over 1% of total population of India."
I would like to add to this at most places in the
country trading of Cloth, Grocery and Electronics
consumer goods is
controlled by Sindhis, hence the real genuine and true
business minded person is the Sindhi.
Sindhi is a patriotic community. We are being brought up
in the atmosphere, which helps to develop attitude that
“My motherland is one, where I born and brought up”,
Hence you see Prem Ramchandani [during the 1965 war with
Pakistan] was determined not to die on enemy’s land and
had scarified his life for the mother India. Who can
ever forget Sahid Hemu Kalani, Teen age Sindhi freedom
