The Partition of India for Hindu Sindhis was a devastating experience because, unlike Bengal and Punjab which were split, Sindh in toto became part of Islamic Pak. This meant the loss of land and the loss of the Hindu Sindhi identity as well.

This book is a collection of 140 first hand accounts of those who were part of the giant exodus from their homeland and how they rebuilt their lives. The suddenly impoverished but brave Sindhi never begged or became violent: instead he focussed on being self-sufficient.

The book has accounts of Sindhi Hindus such as Deputy PM Shri L K Advani, and lawyer Ram Jethmalani amongst several others from all strata of society. It is the narration of a migrant community in its own words, recounting the travails of its dynamic survivors who, once they had resettled, even became philanthrophists.

Sindhi Reflections is a must read for history students and for Sindhis everywhere.
