Sindhi Language

The Sindhi language is an Indo-Aryan language and is a descendant of Sanskript language. Sindhi originated in the lower Indus River Valley and takes its name from the river Indus known in earlier times as the Sindhu. Today, the Sindhi language is spoken in Sindh, but also in India when Hindu Sindhis left Sindh following Partition of India in 1947. Today Hindu Sindhis are scattered all over India and and diaspora communities all over the world..
