Beloved and Esteemed Brother,
Pray forgive me. I should have written to you earlier.
But I have just seen your very kind letter and I hasten to write these few hurried words to you.
I rejoice to learn that you have hosted a Sindhi teaching school on Internet in roman Sindhi script. I have often said: use any script that you like but please keep the language alive. We must not lose our beloved Sindhi language. We are a scattered community. If there is one thing that will keep us united and that will help us retain our identity, it is the language. The Sindhi language is the life-breath of the Sindhi community. If the life-breath departs, how long will the community last?
Let the Sindhi children learn as many languages as they will: but let them not neglect the Sindhi language. In our homes, we should converse with each other in the Sindhi language.
The Sindhi language has been the inspiration, the soul of Sindhi life & culture. And in the words of Gurudev Sadhu Vaswani: “To be cut off from your language and literature, O Sindhi people, will be uprooted from life itself!”
Let me thank you for all your efforts to keep the language alive.
With humble, loving regards,
In the One Service,
