SINDHI REFLECTION’S- A FOREWORD BY SHRI. L.K. ADVANI.

A fascinating collection of over 140 true accounts and profiles of Sindhis who left their ancestral homes during and after partition between 1947 and 1950. This 540 page book captures the true experiences of Hindu Sindhi who went from riches to rags, only to climb back to riches again.

From August 14, 1947, Sindh stopped being part of India and belonged to a new Islam-dominated nation,Pakistan. Hindhus of Sindh suddenly found the environment change and felt like they had become strangers in their own ancestral homes. They lived in fear in a hostile environment. For a pacifist community, this was a nightmare. They abandoned their homes and lands and left for India, in many case with just the clothes on their bodies.

There was no time either for self-pity or blame. Many millionaires speak in Sindhi Reflections of their terrible past and of their lives today. Found today on the golf course or at the bridge tableor sitting quietly solving a crossword, they regret nothing.

Lata Jagtiani has put together these amazing accounts and profiles, which offer us a rare glimpse into the lives of a dynamic, fun loving and happy community. The trails, the triumphs, the sorrows, the deaths, the successes, the adventures, these and others experiences are researched and recorded in Sindhi Reflections, making it an invaluable book for all students of Indian history.

Lata Jagtiani has an M.A. in English Literature and Aesthetics and has been lecturing in colleges in Mumbai. She also contributes articles to various newspapers, journals and websites. She is the author of “Temple bells and Other Stories,” “Towards Light,” and the recent “Bhagavad Gita in 365 Days.”
