Comment by: Gul Agha
The spiritual guide of Sindhis, transmitter of the Holy Verses in Sindhi, Lord Latif advises giving up inhibitions and proceeding with our endeavor. Shah gives us as role models women who not only have human frailties, but who choose their own lovers and destiny. These women are strong, determined, liberated, professional, physically engaged and uninhibited–and none of them observe “purdah”: Sasuii–does not stay home and she does not need a “male” guardian for her arduous journey along an unfamiliar path; Liilaa does not shy away from dancing; Sohirnii is engaged in a profession (as a shopkeeper serving customers) and goes swimming in the river by herself. Shah says to abandon inhibitions with humility:
Sisters! success is theirs, who abandon vanity.
Friends! you must give up mindlessness
Shun inhibitions and come out.
By giving up avarice, greed and clothing set out for the desired goal.
Success with the beloved cannot be merely by sleeping achieved.
adiyuun varu ughaarra, vihaanu jehen visaariyo
jeddiyuun! chhadde jaarra, sabhi nangiyuun thii nikro
sabhi nangiyuun thii nikro, laalacha chhadde lobha
supiriyaan siin sobha, ninddruun kande na thiye!
