At Ahmedabad summit several Sindhi linguists and professors debated and deliberated over the standardised ROMAN SINDHI SCRIPT VERSION that was adopted by the Alliance in Los Angeles in 2009. Few minor changes were made to LA Version and the updated version was unanimously approved, adopted and recommended for Global Sindhi use by the delegates present on 29 March 2010 at the Ahmadabad Summit.

INTRODUCTION

Welcome to Romanized Sindhi Script. After several years of extensive and dedicated work this project became a reality when this Web Portal was hosted on 31 December 2010, for the convenient teaching and learning of Reading, Writing and Speaking simple Sindhi Online through Romanized Script, available Free of any costs to anyone, anytime and anywhere on earth.

Please go to our Audio Chart on this website and familiarize yourself with the system of Romanized Sindhi, how it works. You may simply click here: http://www.romanizedsindhi.org/audiochart.aspx. Please understand the use of Roman Sindhi consonants and vowels thoroughly as against Arbi or Devnagiri Sindhi.


 You may also view audio visual slide show where consonants and vowels are shown in one slide show and vowels in another one. Click here:

Many Sindhis around the Globe have benefited from this website. In some cities the local Panchayats or the Sindhi Community Teams have started conducting classes teaching Reading, Writing and Speaking simple Sindhi to young Sindhis in their areas, through the use of this website via internet. We appeal to all Sindhi Panchayats and Associations all over the world to please help, do the same, propagate learning of Reading, Writing and Speaking of Sindhi to all Sindhis. If the language is lost it would mean our community would be lost, so please help save not only our mother tongue but also our community.


Since hosting of this site in 2010, we had the luck that Ms Kajal A Ramchandani, a Sindhi lecturer at Jai Hind College Mumbai and a keen supporter of Sindhi language joined our team in the year 2011. She has given us lot of help on (a) editing the data entries on dictionary and (b) promoting learning of Reading, Writing and Speaking of Sindhi through this website by conducting several workshops at several selected institutions. We are grateful to her.


In the year 2012 we had a luck too as we had Dr Vijay Bhatia, originally from Maharashtra, now in Pennsylvania PA/USA joining our team and he too has helped us a lot on dictionary entry editing and streamlining and other related issues. Dr Bhatia is a keen Sindhi “learner” and learns by giving these practical services. We thank him greatly.


All FOUNDING LIFE MEMBERS of Romanized Sindhi team have helped extensively too; others who have helped us are shown in Pioneers Pages at this very site. We are grateful to Miss Rajni Valecha who helped make 10000 worded data entries into our English/Sindhi/English bi-directional audio supported Dictionary which has just been launched. Please click, view and hear at http://www.romanizedsindhi.org/audiodictionary.aspx

As the dictionary project was long delayed and meanwhile we had lot of requests asking for it, the version of dictionary uploaded is still semi-edited and is being re-edited by several scholars. We invite feedback for any errors, omissions or improvements, which we intend to carry out subject to our Committees approval. We are also concerned about the pronunciations on the audios on this Dictionary because we have had difficulty in getting post partition born Sind his who have time and facility to come forward and help dubbing in their voice. Moreover many of them do not speak good Sindhi. Senior Sind his born before partition speak good Sindhi but they are only few left and mostly too advanced in their age to render their voices for dubbing. We have done our best within our ability to get 10,000 words dubbed in Sindhi language but if any of the users or readers feel their voice and pronunciations are better, we request for their help not only assisting us on editing the dictionary but also providing MP3s for Sindhi meanings dubbed in their voice as a Community Service to this project. We request the dubbing to be good and well audible, without any distortions, air or other sounds, and also without unnecessary pauses as pauses occupy lot of space on the website, the rental of which is very expensive.

Those willing to help as Community service, kindly email to Attention:
