In days of yore, Sindh was much larger than its borders suggest today. Various ancient texts–the Chachnamah, Jain manuscripts, the writings of Ibn Battuta, for example–speak of a Greater Sindh, as it were, whose borders sometimes included parts of present-day Punjab, Balochistan and/or Kutch,” says Nandita Bhavnani, co-creator of the large-format book Sindhnamah. The 304-page book she has created with the late Gita Simoes includes stunning images that give a peek into the rich culture and heritage of the region. It traces the journey of the community through family photographs, maps, lithographs and illustrated manuscripts. Photographers from both sides of the border have contributed towards the project.
“Today, if the geopolitical contours of Sindh have narrowed, so have notions of Sindhi culture, history and identity on both sides of the border. In India, separated from the land of their ancestors, many Sindhis are only dimly aware of their substantial cultural and historical heritage. In Pakistan, the non-Muslim aspects of Sindhi history may not be widely recalled. Sindhnamah seeks to bridge these gaps; it seeks to enable all Sindhis to celebrate their history, heritage and identity. I also hope that this book will be an attractive gateway to Sindh for other readers interested in this part of the world,” she adds.
