Bringing Out The Culture Within
Our ancestors are from Sindh, a prominent region in Pre-Partitioned India that was incorporated in the newly created Pakistan in 1947. The birth of Pakistan led to the migration of many Hindu Sindhi's over the country’s borders and the ultimate dispersion of our community worldwide. The overwhelming majority of Hindu Sindhi families left all their possessions behind and had to re-build their lives elsewhere.
Through strong work ethic and business acumen, most Sindhi families have established themselves on firm financial footing and successfully integrated into their new environments. However, it has come at a very high price – primarily due to the circumstances surrounding partition, Sindhi's of today’s generation faced an ever-widening gap in their knowledge of our cultural heritage and in their practice of our Sindhi language, customs and traditions, as well as a lack of connection with each other.
