“The Sindh Story” A Great Account on Sindh by Dada Kewal Malkani

By Zulfiqar Halepoto, Hyderabad

Karachi: Queen of the East

“It is a book which should find a place in every Sindhi home.” Shaikh Ayaz

Mushtaq Talpur shared an interesting and thrilling link to me, which is sent to him by Iftikhar Soomro. This is about a book “The Sindh Story” written by Dada Kewal Malkani, a renowned journalist, scholar and professor of Indian History. Book is dedicated to “the sacred memory of Shaheed Allah Bux Soomro & Bhagat Kanwar Ram”. Foreword is written by Dada Ram Jethmalani.

I believe that this book must have gone through by lots of friends but for me it was an amazing account.

Though the entire book is a must read account but four chapters are incredible “Sindhu is Devine” “Karachi: Queen of the East” “I am a Sindhi- Gandhi” and “Alexander’s Waterloo in Sindh”

On Karachi I must suggest to you all that you should also read our friend Gul Hasan Kalmati’s Encyclopedia like new book on Karachi “Karachi: Marvi of Sindh”

Content of the book “The Sindh Story” is very inspiring:-
