    Today all Sindhi celeberating their cultrual day everywhere in Sindh, other cities of the country and all over the world whereever they are residing. At this occassion other nations Balouch, Punjabi, Pakhtoon, Siraiki of the country and at the moment representatives of other countries in Pakistan are also participating and enjoying this cultrual day with Sindhi Brothers. I appreciate their contribution and role play with Sindh for today. Sindhi People have started to presents of AJRAK AND TOPI to their friends of otehr nations. Off course Sindh and Sindhi Culture having five thousand years back ground history since Moen-jo-Daro, from time to time encouraged by residents of Sindh and also introduced Sindhi culture in all over the world by AJRAK, TOPI, PATKO, RILHI INCLUDING OTHER HANDICRAFTS and FURNITURE OF HALLA. AJRAK (peice of cloth) was liked by Hazrat Muhammad (PBUH) and also visitors from all over the world. The renowned poet Hazrat Shah Abdul Latif Bhittai of Sindh prays for all humankind including Sindh and says in his poetry.

    ” Saeem Sadeen Kareen Matay Sindh Sukar,
    Dost Tu Dildar Alam Sabh Abaad Kareen”.
