I have a copy of an electronic book very kindly forwarded by a friend. The book was written in 1843 by Captain Leopold Von Orlich a German who travelled with British invaders.
It is a very interesting account of Sindh and Sindhis. It seems the politics and people have not changed very much since 1843. Below is an excerpt. We will see if we can publish the whole Electronic book on Sanaland in segments keeping in view the copy rights and our ‘thirst”, if any for Introspection.
